Every person is different and has his or her own needs, which is why BLACKROLL® has developed different foam rollers based on different needs.
Which foam roller suits you?
The mother of all foam rollers
The BLACKROLL® STANDARD foam roller is the ideal tool for self-massage of the back, neck, upper body, thighs, calves and shins. You work exclusively with your own body weight to vary the pressure on the tissue and massage as needed. Muscle pain and tension can loosen facial adhesions and promote recovery. The BLACKROLL® GROOVE STANDARD has the same hardness, but has a grooved surface, which provides a vibration effect that further stimulates blood circulation and tackles stubborn muscle tension. Ideal for warming up your muscles before exercise.
For beginning rollers & all who like it softer
The BLACKROLL® MED foam roller is 20% softer than the BLACKRORLL® STANDARD and is therefore suitable for beginners. Even if you are sensitive to pain and want to train carefully and pain-free, the BLACKROLL® MED foam roller is the right choice. This foam roller is also the ideal tool for self-massage of the back, neck, upper body, thighs, calves and shins. We recommend using the BLACKROLL® MED FOAM ROLLER up to 75 kilograms. The BLACKROLL® MED is also available in BLACKROLL® MED45. This is slightly longer (45cm) than the regular BLACKROLL® MED, so it reaches a larger surface area of your body. Because of its size, the BLACKROLL® MED 45 is one of our best foam rollers for massaging the entire back.
For professionals, frequent rollers & muscles of steel
The BLACKROLL® PRO foam roller is 50% harder than the BLACKROLL® STANDARD and ensures that simple exercises increase the elasticity and performance of muscles. The PRO is only suitable for experienced rollers or people who are less sensitive to pain.
Small foam rollers
Then we come to the treatment of small, vulnerable muscle groups that are difficult to reach with a large foam roller.
The BLACKROLL® MINI & MINI FLOW: is perfect for self-massage of the forearms, upper arms, calves, Achilles tendon, soles of the feet and neck. The BLACKROLL® MINI FLOW has a structured surface with ridges, which creates a double effect: (1) regeneration of the muscles and (2) active stimulation of tense muscles. It is also the ideal travel companion. Whether you are traveling or sitting behind the computer, you can easily take the MINI with you due to its compact size.
The BLACKROLL® BALL 8 & 12: can be used in many different ways and therefore even the most difficult to reach muscles can be reached. In this way, so-called trigger points (pain points) are treated effectively. This includes not only the neck and back muscles, but also the buttocks and calves. Trigger points in these muscle groups often cause pain that radiates to the arms or legs and is often confused with a hernia. BALL 12 is slightly less intensive than BALL 8, because BALL 12 has a wider contact surface.
Then we have the latest variations on the BLACKROLL® STANDARD. The BLACKROLL® DUOBALL and the BLACKROLL® TWIN have a recess in the middle. They are appropriately combined to massage the back muscles and especially the spine. They are also suitable for massage of the arms, thighs and calves. The BLACKROLL® TWIN has a slightly wider contact surface than the BLACKROLL® DUOBALL. This makes the facial massage of the back more extensive and less punctual. The BLACKROLL® DUOBALL, on the other hand, is better at the trigger points (pain points).
