There’s no getting around it: these are a beastly set of bells. They arrive in half a dozen boxes, and you could be forgiven for thinking you’d ordered an entire gym by accident (unpacking them is a workout in itself).
However, setting up the dumbbells is straightforward, and getting started requires nothing more than a glance at the instructions. The set offers you weight options from 5kg to 34kg, giving you 21 different weights to work with. That’s enough of a range, whatever your experience.
We tried every weight and found the handles to be comfortable throughout. Although one of the most expensive dumbbells on test, it’s worth remembering these come as a pair (often you’ll have to buy individual dumbbells).
To adjust the weights, simply move the sliders to the desired resistance and get going. They’re a little longer than the other adjustable dumbbells on test, so the footprint of each dumbbell in its tray is larger. But buying a pair will still save you significant floor space when compared to a traditional set of dumbbells covering the same weight range.
