I always begin a review by going over any quality claims a company has for their product so that we can accurately test whether the product meets the description advertised.

So now we've taken a look at what's on offer, let's get down to the review!

Comfort

None of the products in the review provided any discomfort although some were a little tricky to get into.

If you've ordered the right size gloves to avoid any slippage while using them they will be a very snug fit.

My main issue with the gloves was that if I got very sweaty I would have great grip on my palms from the glove, but my fingers would sweat too and that felt a bit precarious in a handspring!

I easily solved this issue though by adding a little climbing chalk (or any chosen grip aid) to my finger tips to remove the moisture.

The wrist supports provide a good solid feeling of support in the most wrist intensive positions such as bracket grips.

The Liquid Motion knee pads felt a little bulky when I first tried them on, but after getting used to them they feel very comfortable!

That bulk is needed for all important knee protection and they sit nicely under leg warmers if you're just focusing on floor work with no need to climb the pole.

The tricky product for me was the tack anklet protectors. It was a bit of a struggle to wiggle into them, but once they were on they didn't feel uncomfortable.

Design

The mighty grip special formula is specifically designed to work in colder temperatures. It's still heat activated but will give better results in a cooler climate.

The pro-tack gloves come in a range of colours to suit you and are designed well with open fingers and reinforced stitching for heavy use.

Mighty Grip wrist supports are easy to put on, with a thumb loop to make it easier to tighten for a secure fit.

Liquid motion knee pads have been re-designed with reinforced stitching added to the design. This is for better durability due to reports of the old design coming apart with heavy use.

They also mold to my knee and bend with the body much better than the original design, and after a fair bit of heavy use I have had no problems.

With your knees well protected, these knee pads also allow for easy transitions between floorwork and pole tricks.

The mighty grip anklet protectors are designed to allow you to hold the pole between your ankles, I don't have a huge need for these but I still tested them against my own skin to compare.

Design wise, they serve their purpose but don't look overly attractive.

Size Guide Accuracy

All of the items I have recieved from mighty grip fit perfectly, here are the size charts for each item for your reference.

Mighty Grip Pro-Tack Gloves

To fit for pro-tack gloves it is recommended that you measure around the knuckles of your dominant hand.

Liquid Motion Knee Pads

Measure around the back of your knee and over the knee cap for these.

So How Is The Grip?

In this section I have the answers you've been waiting for! Just how well do these products work to help grip and slip issues?

The Mighty Grip Pro-Tack Gloves did feel a little strange in an Iguana position but they provide a good strong grip, especially in hands-only moves like handspring.

Some people find that the hands slip inside the gloves. While this wasn't a problem for me as I ordered a snug fit, it is a problem you can easily solve.

Just apply a little Mighty Grip powder to the palms of your hands before putting them on if you have this problem.

These are also great to have around if your hands are getting sore from a lot of training.

Mighty Grip Special Formula Powder is great for cold climates. I did try this product out in the topical climate of Costa Rica.

While it is heat activated, I was far too hot and sweaty in Costa Rica for the powder to have any effect, there was just too much moisture on my skin.

I can only put this down to the special formula being made for cooler temperatures, as it works fantastic for me in the UK exactly as described.

Just put a small amount on your hands and rub like crazy, the hotter it gets the more you start to feel the tack from the product. It worked great!

For warmer climates try the original formula that wasn't modified for cooler temperatures.

Liquid Motion Knee Pads are fantastic for transitioning between floor and pole. Whether it's sore knees on a hard surface or friction burns from carpet you're trying to avoid, I love them!

They have become a must have addition to my pole bag and protect my knees well for floorwork while still allowing me to grip the pole with the back of the knee for tricks.

Mighty Grip Tack Anklet Protectors weren't my favourite product in this review but the grip was great between the ankles when climbing the pole.

What I didn't like about these was the struggle to get into them, and then they just weren't my style, I felt silly wearing them.

I also found the new tack strip on the bottom didn't have as much grip as I expected. I thought it would be great for moves like cupid, but fared better with my own foot grip.

Here are some demonstrations of each product so you can see for yourself.

Final Thoughts

While I didn't find the new tack strip on the bottom of the anklet protectors very grippy, they did work perfectly for their main job of gripping at the ankles.

They definitely can't be used to 'cheat' if you're relying on your foot grip for moves like Cupid though. So keep working on pushing those hips forward and engaging your core 😉

There were no major problems with the other products, other than some grip positions in the gloves that didn't feel comfortable as they restricted hand flexibility a little.

I absolutely love the Liquid Motion knee pads and the Mighty Grip Special Formula Powder is a great grip aid for cooler climates.

If you're in a hotter climate it might be worth testing out the original formula.

I'll also be updating the review soon with Kleinerts Dry Body Wipes which are available on the Mighty Grip website.

They boast advanced technology for effective sweat control, and a dry body for up to 7 days!

Great article, I’m quite a fan of the mighty grip products, I have the ankle protectors, the gloves, and the upper arm protectors.
I found the ankle protectors were great while I was working on my climb as I had had some issues with the skin on top of my foot tearing from my poor climbing technique, so these were great as protection with that while I worked on my strength and perfected my technique.
I too find the gloves are great sometimes but also found that there was some restriction and sweating with them.
I am very keen to get some of the knee pads and am also interested in testing the thigh protectors.
These aren’t items I wear every time but I find they are great to have if I am practicing a move over and over or if I am feeling particular wimpy about trying a new move (in regards to the skin grip) lol.

    Hey Sammy,

    I’m a huuuge fan of the knee pads, I use them for floorwork to save my knees on the hard wood and tiles but just recently I’ve been practising a competition routine and the floor is a rough carpet that gives me lots of friction burns.

    Luckily the knee pads are great to practise in because I can avoid carpet burn and move to the pole smoothly for my combos with no worries 🙂

    I was amazed at the level of grip on the ankle protectors I can imagine they were a godsend learning to climb, I never had the luxury haha!
