"Junior Gym" parallel bars from Continental's range of training aids and fun apparatus for the younger aspiring gymnast. The "Junior Gym" range is based on a set of interchangeable components to allow the user to switch between the different items of apparatus easily and at low cost.
The apparatus is freestanding and the width between the bars is easily adjusted using the simple sprung locating pins and thumbscrews in the bases.
The standard rails are manufactured in a similar way to our FIG standard asymmetric bars rail - a timber veneered fibreglass bar but with a slightly smaller diameter and slightly more flex. These rails will present modest spring or flex to the lighter junior gymnast but brings them close to the sensation of the senior apparatus.
two zinc plated base rails with rubber feet
two upright frames with short zinc plated inners,
two veneered fibreglass rails
