This came out of nowhere! I literally had no idea that this was in the pipeline and then BOOM! Onnit drops the 1.5 pood orangutan Primal Bell with very little fanfare.
This new 1.5 pood orangutan Primal Bell weighs just over 54 pounds, placing it right in between the original one pood chimp kettlebell and the two pood gorilla kettlebell. This is great if you found the original chimp kettlebell too light or the gorilla kettlebell too heavy. Or, do what a lot of other people do and pick one up to keep it on display!
The orangutan Primal Bell is made from the same amazing coated iron as the other Primal Bells so they’re extremely durable and resistant to rust and chips. They’ll look incredible for years whether you’re working out with them or displaying them like artwork, which I would say they are. They are not only amazingly sculpted, but they’re perfectly balanced as well so all Primal Bells feel like a regular kettlebell when you’re using it. That alone is a feat of engineering and design.
Visit the Onnit website NOW to order an orangutan Primal Bell before they’re sold out, as they’re only available for a limited time. If you haven’t already, pick up a one pood chimp Primal Bell and the two pood gorilla Primal Bell while you’re at it.
Onnit has also started working with charities to help keep our primal ancestors alive and to prevent extinction, starting with The Orangutan Project. You can read more about this alliance here. It’s good to know that not only are you getting a badass set of kettlebells, but you’re doing a small part to help keep a magnificent species of animals alive and around for generations to come.
