Harsh at first, but gives a satisfying home massage for sports injury prevention
Skip to view product specifications

The large protrusions scattered across the surface of this foam roller are designed to be firm yet flexible, mimicking the probing thumbs of a sports massage therapist. A step up from plastic-cored rollers, the Rumble Roller’s EVA bumps give your muscles a serious kneading, which can be more painful than traditional foam rollers but gives a deeper – and more satisfying – myofascial release.

We found it good for quads, hamstrings, calves and back, but rolling the iliotibial band (ITB) took a little longer to get used to. The Rumble Roller hasn’t suffered any compression or shown wear after two months’ use. As well as this race-bag-friendly 30cm model there’s a longer 77.5cm version (£62), and even a firmer black version – if you dare.
