Just as Onnit dropped the new Harpy Legend Bells kettlebell, Brendan “Big Brown” Schaub has dropped a sneak preview of the upcoming Bigfoot Legend Bell!
Yesterday, Brendan posted an image of the new Bigfoot Legend Bell on his Instagram with the caption “Oooooh hell naaaah!!!!! @onnit found Big Foot! Brace yourselves. If you’re scared, I get it.”
Other than knowing what the new Legend Bell looks like, there are no other details leaked about the Bigfoot kettlebell. One could assume that this will be much larger than the new Harpy Legend Bell, and likely bigger than both the Cyclops and Werewolf Legend Bells. Like the existence of the Sasquatch himself, the release date for the Bigfoot Legend Bell remains a mystery.
Check back soon to find out exactly when this bad boy is released.
Onnit has just dropped the latest in its series of Legend Bells kettlebells, this time it’s the Harpy.
While I had heard the term “harpy” before, I wasn’t exactly sure what one was. My Googling has uncovered that harpy is a female monster from Greek mythology that’s a combination of a human and a bird.
The Harpy Legend Bell weighs in at 12kg or 27lbs. for you Americans. Is it a coinicidence that the lightest of the Legend Bells has the face of a woman? Is this kettlebell designed for women? I’m going to give Onnit the benefit of the doubt and say that the company is not hinting that women are only capable of lifting small amounts of weight. We don’t want the social justice warriors to get angry.
All joking aside, the sculpt for this one is really cool. The sides and top of the kettlebell feature feathers and the front has the angular yet feminine face of the harpy. The rear is inscribed with the weight of the Legend Bell and the Onnit logo.
Like all of Onnit’s specialty kettlebells, the Harpy Legend Bell was 3D scanned and sculpted multiple times to ensure that it’s perfectly balanced. That’s important with a kettlebell, as you don’t want the weight to be improperly balanced to one side, leading you to be off on your throws, resulting in possible injury.
The Legend Bells are all crafted with chip-resistant iron and feature an enlarged handle to increase your grip strength as you increase the size of your muscles.
You can head over to the Onnit website now where you can purchase the Harpy Legend Bell and all the others in this specialty line. The Harpy retails for just $65, which is less than I was expecting. Grab one today before they’re gone!
It was rumored for a while, but now it’s confirmed. The next kettlebell in Onnit’s Legend Bells series will be the Sasquatch Legend Bell kettlebell.
Yesterday Joe Rogan posted a sneak peak of the upcoming kettlebell on his Instagram which you can also see pictured over to the right. No other information was posted other than the fact that it will be called “Sasquatch” rather than “Bigfoot” and that it’s “coming soon”. I’m not sure whether it will be larger or smaller than the 28kg Werewolf Legend Bell, but if I had to take a guess, I’d say that it will likely be bigger. I’d also wager that it will be out sometime before Halloween.
I tried to do a bit of digging on the Onnit website to see if I could unearth any other information the way I did with the Onnit 180 drink mix before it was released, but there’s nothing there that I could find. Rest assured that when new information does become available you will be able to find it here first.
Now this is is cool.
I was a fan of the original Onnit Primal Bells and Zombie Bells. The sculpts of them were very well done but I’m not into primates the same way Rogan is and I feel like the whole zombie thing has kind of run out of steam. But the Werewolf Legend Bell kettlebell is truly badass.
Like the other sculpted Onnit kettlebells that have come before it, the Werewolf Legend Bell is made with chip-resistant iron, is perfectly balanced so it performs like a traditional kettlebell, has the enlarged handle to really enhance your grip strength, and it looks awesome too. The Werewolf Bell weighs in at 28 kg. which translates to 62 lbs.
I remember a while back that Aubrey said on an episode of The Joe Rogan Experience that Onnit was working on a series of Monster Bells. This Werewolf Bell is likely the first in a series of monsters that Onnit will introduce. It makes sense though, right? Introduce multiple monsters in different sizes and even if people don’t use them to workout with, they’ll likely collect them so they have the complete series.
The Onnit Werewolf Legend Bell kettlebell is now available from Onnit, priced at just under $147.
Update 10/28/13: The Onnit Zombie Bell Kettlebells have now been released! They’re are on the Onnit website, there are four varieties, and they are limited in stock! If you’ve been wanting one of these, now’s the time to jump on them before they’re gone!
I’m a fan of zombie movies and I have been for years. The ironic zombie trend became tired years ago as far as I’m concerned and it can die at any time now–no pun intended. That being said, Onnit is hopping on the zombie bandwagon with the introduction of a new Zombie Bell, and it looks amazing.
What’s a Zombie Bell you ask? Well, it’s just like the Primal Bells that Onnit introduced earlier this year, but instead of using the head of a chimpanzee, gorilla, or an ape, this kettlebell features the head of a zombie. You can pretend it’s a severed zombie head that you swing around to prepare for the impending zombie apocalypse.
Like the Primal Bells that came before it, the Onnit Zombie bell is crafted from chip-resistant iron and it features an enlarged handle for enhanced grip strength. It’s also perfectly balanced, so the Zombie Bell not only looks badass, it’s functional as a traditional kettlebell, or as a piece of artwork.
It’s not known currently whether the Onnit Zombie Bell will be available for purchase, but I’ll let you guys know if and when it does become available. In the meantime, head over to the Onnit Labs Facebook page where you can enter the Zombie Sweepstakes to win a zombie survival kit package that includes the Zombie Bell, a steel mace, a new Onnit zombie T-shirt, Alpha Brain, and a couple zombie survival books as well.
