FROM AN IDEA TO 60,000 CLIENTS
FROM AN IDEA TO 60,000 CLIENTS
Invented, designed and made in Italy! Since Simon Sparber, ex-gymnast and Angles90 founder, back in 2017, attached old ski stick grips to a barbell and tried doing pull-ups, we’ve built a community of 60,000+ clients worldwide.
DIFFERENT GRIP METHODS
The unique and patented handle design allows for different grip methods. Most clients use the ergo method for medium to high reps. The power method, instead, gets favored for lower reps/high weights.
The most ergonomic method, where the handle fits the form of your hand. With this method, the stronger part of your hand (the middle) does the most work while relieving pressure on the weaker parts. Ideal for 12 – 20+ reps.
Now you are basically gripping half of a gymnastic ring! With this method, the weaker parts of your hand are supported and you can lift heavier.
Instead of your middle finger, put your ring finger through the strap to increase the difficulty of gripping the handle. In this way, your forearms work harder.
This position allows you to perform push exercises at cable machines or with the A90 Sling Trainer. This grip is also used for heavy weights while doing pulling exercises.
More than just a handle
Co-developed with hundreds of strength training athletes and ergonomists of the University TU Munich.
more functions, better grip, and just as stable!

Like all the equipment I received the handles seem sturdy as well as the pull system
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the maximum capacity of the Angles90 grips?
The grips are certified for 180kg (400lb) per handle (or 360kg/800lb if both are used together). Also, you can take a look at our unofficial resistance test that we did with a minivan, which weighed over 1.8 tons (4 grips) - Angles90 Resistance Test
Do you decrease your grip strength by using the Angles90 grips?
Building grip strength is extremely important. With the help of Angles90 you can definitely increase your grip strength because you have to control the freely-moveable grip - and you can change between grip options. The FOREARM grip option also puts the main focus on your grip strength by putting the ring finger between the straps. Long story short: no you do not decrease your grip strength by using our grip. Short answer: no! Whereas the grip feeling itself is more comfortable now, especially compared to standard cable machine handles and to most pull-up bars, this does not lead to a weakened grip strength. Rather, grip strength will remain unaltered. The only two things that will and should change with Angles90 grips involved are a) less joint stress (shoulders, elbows, wrists) and b) maximized contraction of your target muscle, your back. However, if your main aim is to focus on increasing grip strength, one out of our four grip methods can help you with it: The so-called forearm grip method consists in putting your ring- instead of your middle finger through the strap. In this way, your forearms will be engaged more.
What is the difference between Angles90 Grips and Gymnastic rings?
While gymnastic rings are definitely also a great product, here are several differences:1. You can only grab rings in one way. Our grips, on the other hand, offer different grip options. The ERGO grip option closely matches the natural curve of your hands, which makes it more ergonomic. 2. Rings are much bigger, and therefore less convenient to carry around.3. Most importantly, the Angles90 grips can be attached to all kinds of pulling machines, cable machines, bars, and bands, which allows for a more natural ROM and a wider variety of exercises - not just for pull-ups.
Why are the Angles90 grips more joint friendly?
A freely movable handle allows for a more natural range of motion which directly implies less joint stress. Our bodies were not made to grab horizontally aligned handles year in and year out in the gym. From a biomechanical perspective, our arms (slightly) rotate when they pull something. With the use of Angles90, you grab a handle that adapts to you and not the other way around. This helps your involved muscle groups absorb forces more efficiently, therefore minimizing wrist, elbow, and shoulder injury risk.
Can I use the Angles90 grips for pull exercises only?
The grips were designed for pull exercises, because that is where the freedom in choosing different grip positions is missing the most (barbell deadlifts, pull-ups, rowing machines etc.). However, the handles are also attachable to cable machines for a better grip, like while doing Chest Flyes. With the help of our A90 Sling Trainer and A90 Resistance Band, you can do a lot of 'push' exercises too, just use the POWER+ method explained above on this page.
What is the difference compared to grabbing a conventional bar?
Angles90 allows you to train in a natural range of motion, which means that countless exercises can be performed more effectively and with less strain on the joints. Our body is not made to move weights with fixed, rigid angles - at least according to numerous studies and the best coaches on this planet.From a biomechanical perspective, our arms should move freely during a movement in order to alleviate pressure from wrists, elbows and shoulders. This problem becomes especially clear during 'pull' movements like lat pull-downs, pull-ups, deadlifts and barbell/machine rows due to limited grip options - unlike chest or shoulder exercises. For example with a dumbbell press, you intuitively chose a range of motion that feels most comfortable on your joints and that uses your target muscle most effectively.
How is it different than a conventional Sling Trainer?
1. So small it fits in your pocket2. You would miss out on the ergonomic handle with the conventional sling trainer option3. Do pull-ups (even without a bar) 4. Widen the sling straps and do dips5. Set up your dip station6. Use it as a weight belt7. Use it as a (movable) squat rack - also for new barbell exercises8. Use it as a hight-adjustable anchor for bands and pulleys
What is the maximum resistance of the A90 Sling Trainer?
The maximum resistance is 550lb (250kg) per strap, carabiner, and metal buckle! This has been tested and certified by TÜV.The Angles90 grips, instead, are certified for 400lb (180kg) per handle.
Can I attach the A90 Sling Trainer to a door?
Of course! Assuming that the door is stable enough, you can even perform pull-ups there. Please have a look at the following video which explains how to set it up: Door pull ups
What is the resistance of the bands?
There are two bands included in the package: Blue Band = 9kg/20lb Black Band = 18kg/40lb. You can obviously use them together too.
How can I train from a higher anchor with the resistance bands?
Just set-up your A90 Sling Trainer to a high bar or tree and connect it with your Resistance Band. This is also beneficial for the durability of your bands because you do not have to attach them to a rough surface.
Is it possible to do assisted pull-ups with your A90 Resistance Bands?
Of course! Simply tie the bands carabiner to the lowest point of your Angles90 grip straps. Please have a look at the following video: Assisted pull-ups
