Our Mini bands have a fabric cover for extra durability and comfort. They are also a little wider than traditional rubber bands. It can be wise to start with the light version (reference resistance 8kg) before changing to medium (10kg) or hard (12kg) - they are sure to give you that extra challenge that you are after!
