Rumble Roller Review Specifics
The Rumble Roller is a hard foam roller created for experienced foam rollers who want a rough but intensive treatment. It features a strong inner core with a textured grid design on its outer shell with bumps that are specially designed to be firm yet flexible. RumbleRoller tried to recreate the feeling of a massage therapists thumbs performing a deep tissue massage as close as possible, in our Rumble Roller review we will test out whether this is actually true.
The high quality foam material has been approved by the CPSIA to be free of lead and phtalates which are possibly damaging to health. It is claimed that the Rumble Roller’s grid is firmer than muscle tissue yet softer than actual bone, so that the bumps will not hit your spine or other bones in the body which could be painful. It comes in two sizes, the 12″ x 5″ and the 31″ x 5″ and for our Rumble Roller Review we tested the larger size. The 31″ x 5″ is ideal for full body rolling at home since you’ll be able to hit your entire body at once. Additionally, the Rumble Roller is molded with the use of an anti-microbial additive and latex-free, so it’s quite hygienic and easy to clean.
Testing the Rumble Roller
It does look a bit intimidating upon first sight with those large knobs, and upon inspection seems to be painful. The foam roller looks to be made of firm material, and gives off a high quality vibe when looking at it closely. The height of the bumps on the outer shell allow for deep penetration into our muscles, unlike other flat foam rollers. When we tried it out we did notice it does indeed simulate a massage therapist’s hands quite well, and it gives a sensation of actually treating and kneading the muscles on a deeper level. Additionally the Rumble Roller is not quite as painful as it looks, it really isn’t much more painful than a regular high density foam roller at all. Don’t judge a foam roller on it’s looks! With the Rumble Roller it’s easy to hit uneven parts of the body and you can position so you do not hit bones or other painful parts. What we liked about the exterior grid is that you can not only move forwards-backwards but also at angles and even side wards. The knobs move a bit as you roll, simulating that intense deep tissue massage experience.
After our Rumble Roller Review and tests we felt great and flexible, and it really feels like the roller does it’s work quite well compared to traditional flat foam rollers and other models we tested. The bumps and grooves make for an extremely satisfying experience. The Rumble Roller is in all honestly quite possibly the best muscle roller on the market at the moment, competing only with the grid. We would definitely recommend getting this one if you are looking for a hard foam roller which can deeply penetrate your muscle tissue for that satisfying self-myofascial release.
