For your Hot Shot gymnasts, the American Gymnast Competitor Uneven Bar Dowel Grips are built for comfort, durability and performance and are designed to be the perfect choice for a girl’s first pair of dowel gymnastics grips.  Meticulously designed with a narrow palm piece, the gymnast gets just the right amount of contact between the bar and their hand, giving them confidence in a sure grip as well as adequate protection for their palms. Leather-wrapped dowels are stitched and glued, ensuring a stable and reliable “pocket” is formed in the palm of the grip.  Gymnasts have the option of using the innovative finger locking elastic band that helps keep the fingers from slipping out of the finger holes.  The band can be easily removed and/or replaced if necessary.

Only the highest-quality leather is selected and then machine-cut with precision accuracy to the correct thickness every time.  Unlike some other brands, we use the same high-quality leather on both the palm piece and the cuff of the grips, increasing the durability and safety of our grips.  A custom-designed stitching process gives maximum strength to the connection between the palm of the grip and the cuff.  The Royal Blue VELCRO™ brand closure around the wrist gives your gymnast confidence that their strap won’t loosen in the middle of their routine.


And, best of all … American Gymnast grips are proudly made in the USA!
