In previous seasons the sled type used had slight variations between the US and European markets, these were 2 different versions of the same sled.
Whilst the overall weight was the same, the structural differentiations led to constructive criticism that we took very seriously.
We have standardized the sleds used across all markets. The overall weight and structural dimensions are the exact same everywhere now while the distribution of plates may differ compared to last season.
Our sport must adhere to rigorous testing and a process of evaluation and improvement to ensure we provide an environment in which athletes enjoy the best possible racing circumstances, this evolution we believe delivers on this requirement.
Note – Whilst we standardize the basic components of a HYROX race we also highlight the nature of sport and that different environmental elements including humidity, altitude, course design and many other factors will continue to create natural variation.
