Thanks to foam rollers a lot of athletes have been rolling their way to faster recoveries and have had a means of preparing their bodies for a workout to come. We’ve come a long way since thinking these were merely over sized pool noodles, and luckily technology has delivered some of the most reliable and effective sports products to date.
2022’s offerings of foam rollers won’t let you down, but since all the brands claim to be the “latest and greatest”, it’s hard to differentiate between the best and the rest.
Luckily we’re here to help you out. While the market seems to be flooded with “top” foam rollers, it basically comes down to 3 big players for the best foam rollers, and Deliventura will show you what you can expect from them.
Luxfit Premium High Density Foam Roller
While you might immediately think “luxury” when you hear the name, the LuxFit High Density roller really is a straight forward foam roller without the frills. It offers firmness…plenty of it and has a density of 2 pounds per cubic foot, ensuring that it’ll help you get rid of the hardest to reach knots.
The LuxFit comes available in 3 sizes; 12, 18 and 36 inch so you can get it in the length you need, albeit you’ll have to dish out a little more for the extra length. We love the fact that this roller comes with a 1 year warranty, so durability has been taken care of. Overall, the LuxFit roller is a great basic roller that offers you single density composition that’ll get the job done.
- It’s very affordable
- Its very firm
- Its super durable
- It comes with a 1 year warranty
- The roller doesn’t have varied textures for targeted massaging
- The foam can start flaking after a year, even more so under intensive use
ProSource Ultra Deluxe Revolutionary Sports Medicine Roller
The ProSource Ultra Deluxe is unique in the sense that it’s constructed with PVC in the core and foam on the exterior surface area, effectively giving you the feel of dual density foam. We love that the exterior foam layer is firm yet flexible so it works out knots while still maintaining a comfortable feel for the user.
With a 13 inch length and a 5.5 inch diameter, the ProSource Ultra Deluxe is on the shorter side, but thanks to its low profile and light weight it’s a great traveling companion. Overall, it’s a very innovative roller that’s set to have the market buzzing this year.
- While it’s made with less foam, the roller actually feels like a dual density foam roller
- Its firm yet flexible
- It’s lightweight
- It has a multi-textured surface
- The PVC core can crack with extended and heavy use
Trigger Point Performance – The GRID
Straight off the bat we have to give Trigger Point Performance – The GRID thumbs up for being available in various firmness ranges; our top pick is the regular model that sports standard firmness. It also comes available in several different lengths ranging from the 5 inch mini roller to the 26 inch model.
The GRID is made with a hollow design that’s made from high quality EVA foam that’ll withstand 600 pounds of pressure…go ahead and try to break it we dare you! The GRID was made with heavy usage in mind AND boasts an attractive 1 year warranty. With a varied-texture exterior and portability, the GRID really shines, but throw in the bonus of the Distrodensity Zones with their varied grooves for targeting problem areas and you’ve got yourself a winner!
- It’s made with high quality materials to ensure maximum durability
- The GRID excels at targeted massage
- It’s very versatile
- It’s expensive
