Disclaimer: Our classic kettlebells have been given an update. In the future, the Cast Iron Kettlebells will have a colour marking on the handles for easier recognition. We are still shipping the existing stock of the all black kettlebells. Mixing of the current and new style within an order might happen, although we will try our best to avoid such mix-ups. Whether old or new, the quality has not changed.
Uncompromising Quality and Extreme Toughness:
These days, kettlebells are easy to come by. Most, however, are not designed with the serious strength athlete in mind. Unlike some of the competition, our kettlebells are virtually indestructible and will literally last a lifetime even under the most rigorous usage.
Over the years, we have worked with various kettlebell athletes and instructors to develop our cast iron kettlebell range to the highest possible standards, without compromising on cost.
Single Piece Casting
Our kettlebells are cast in one single pour, rather than welding or gluing sepatate halves or handles. No fillers, plastic components, caps, plugs or coatings – just pure cast iron through and through.
Unlike some of the competition, we have never had a cracked handle or broken kettlebell, even under the hardest abuse of commercial gyms and strongman training.
Rugged Black Powder Coating
Matte black powder coating is tough and looks even tougher. The scratches and dents which can occur over time do not radically damage the coating. Unlike lacquer, enamel or plastic, damage will never spread and the finish will never chip away in big pieces.

In the late 20th century, Soviet science verified that repetition kettlebell lifting is one of the best tools for all around physical development.
A study observed two groups of college students over a period of a few years:
A standard battery of armed forces physical training tests was used which included the following: pullups, a standing broad jump, a 100 meter sprint, and a 1 k run. The control group followed the typical university physical fitness training program which was military oriented and emphasized the listed exercises. The experimental group just lifted kettlebells. No other training of any kind.
In spite of the lack of practice on the tested drills listed above, the kettlebell training group showed better scores in every one of them.
