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.

The day has finally come! The two pood (72 lb.) Onnit gorilla primal bell kettlebell has finally been released! Without any fanfare (read: Onnit never emailed me about it) the new two pood ape primal bell has been added to the Onnit website and it is in stock and ready to ship. The one pood (36 lb.) chimp primal bell has also been restocked and is available to be purchased as well.
This new gorilla primal bell is made from the same high quality coated iron as the original Onnit kettlebells and the chimp primal bell too. It is highly resistant to both rust and chipping, so whether you choose to actually use the primal bell for working out, or if you’re buying one simply to display and admire, it will look good for years to come. You’ll probably die before the primal bell wears out. They’re that tough.
In terms of looks, the new ape primal bell has also been 3D scanned like the chimp primal bell, and it has been perfectly sculpted to ensure that it’s balanced. This means that there’s no learning curve going from a traditional round kettlebell to a new primal bell. When you’re using it, the primal bell will feel balanced and you’ll be able to swing it around just like a regular kettlebell. And, when you’re done working out, you don’t need to hide them away in the closet. Keep them out in the open, use them as a door stop or paper weight. They’re a conversation starter for sure!
Both the original one pood chimp primal bell and the two pood gorilla primal bell are available ONLY at the Onnit website and are available for a limited time. When they’re gone, there’s no telling if or when they’ll be back in stock. I’ve already ordered one. My chimp primal bell is lonely and needs a friend!
