Unique to BRAINGAIN
The 40kg Octagon Adjustable Dumbbell were created to combine the best features of our most popular first generation adjustable dumbbells - the design of the 32kg adjustable dumbbells with the weight of the 40kg adjustable dumbbells - to create the most unique adjustable dumbbell on the market.
The first defining feature of the BRAINGAIN 40kg Octagon Adjustable Dumbbells is that the length of the handle changes depending on the weight selected - choosing 2.5kg has a significantly shorter length than 40kg which makes it more versatile when doing certain exercises here you really want to maximize range of motion or isolation exercises like bicep curls, shoulder presses, lateral raises.
The BRAINGAIN 40kg Octagon Adjustable Dumbbell is the ONLY adjustable dumbbell on the market that has this feature at the 40kg weight option.
Relative to our first generation 40kg Adjustable Dumbbell, the length remains the same no matter what weight is selected, which makes the Octagon Adjustable Dumbbell a much improved option.
Simply twist the handle and the smart tech mechanism picks up the exact number of plates for the weight you’ve selected. The safe lock technology means the weight can only be changed when the adjustable dumbbells are in their cradle which ensures 100% safety.
The mechanism on the 40kg Octagon Adjustable Dumbbells is a significant improvement on the old style spin lock adjustable dumbbells and other adjustable dumbbell mechanisms on the market. The mechanism allows you to effortlessly change the weight in 2-5 seconds vs other adjustable dumbbells which are closer to 10-15 seconds.
The BRAINGAIN 40kg Octagon Adjustable Dumbbells comes in 2.5kg increments, from 2.5kg to 40kg, all at the twist of a handle. This is the equivalent of 16 pairs of dumbbells in 1 making them a great time, space and money saver.
The standard 2.5kg increments make them stand out to other adjustable dumbbells on the market that are less regular and can sometimes jump from 1.5kg all the way up to 4kg, which makes it more difficult to move up in the weights you’re doing.
The BRAINGAIN 40kg Octagon Adjustable Dumbbells have been built with a commercial market in mind, whereas most other adjustable dumbbells are created more for the home market. This leads to a higher quality and more durable design mechanism that is designed to withstand multiple users a day.
The BRAINGAIN 40kg Octagon Adjustable Dumbbells are being by Personal Trainers and Fitness Studios across the UK and Europe for their clients and have given great feedback to date.
Everyone will naturally have their own views on what looks aesthetically nicer - beauty is in the eye of the beholder - so we won’t give our views on which adjustable dumbbells we think look nicer (hint: 40kg Octagons!).
The benefit however of the 40kg Octagons is the shape of the plates - Octagonal - makes it easier to do exercises where you may need to put your body weight on like renegade rows or push ups. The shape gives you a more stable foundation than other adjustable dumbbells on the market, in particular the ‘round’ plates.
The premium quality, improved mechanism and overall design of the 40kg Octagon Adjustable Dumbbells make them one of the best, if not the best, adjustable dumbbells on the market. They come with an elevated price when compared to our first generation 40kg Adjustable Dumbbells, however if better design, mechanism and speed of use is your priority, then the 40kg Octagon Adjustable Dumbbells are for you.
