Our junior kip bar is a gymnastics training bar for kids just beginning their athletic career. A perfect kip bar for home use, it features a 3.8cm diameter solid maple wood bar and offers a good amount of stability for beginner to intermediate level skills and proves to be one of the highest quality at home training bars. This kip bar will grow with your child's gymnastics career. A four year old will enjoy simply playing with and hanging on the standard bar. As he or she gets older, add the optional stabilisers and the bar becomes perfect for learning casting, kipping and basic circling skills. It features ergonomic hand-wheels that allow for quick adjustment from 97cm up to 1.42m to ensure quick and secure placement. Our junior kip bar is the only kip bar on the market with rounded corners which help keep young gymnasts safe and gives them more confidence as they develop their skills. It features a tubular section powder coated steel frame which can be folded away when not in use, with heavy duty anti-slip and non-marking rubber feet provide stability and all the fixings are manufactured from stainless steel. Available in either red or purple colours - please use the drop down menu to select the colour you require.
The junior kip bar is also available in a package with the stabilisers, tumbling mat and practice mat, this is available here. The optional stabilisers are available here, the bar pad is available here and the cast trainer is available here.

Questions & answers:
What size mat is recommended for the junior kip bar? - The mat needs to be 4 feet wide. We have several mats to choose from: our 1.8m by 1.2m by 15cm practice mat, the 2.4m by 1.2m by 20cm practice mat, or the 2.4m by 1.2m by 3.5cm tumbling mat used with the 1.8m by 90cm by 10cm junior practice mat.
What ceiling height do you recommend? - We recommend 3m ceilings for the highest level but if you have lower ceilings you can set the bar lower and it will still be usable.
