Onnit’s Bigfoot Sasquatch Primal Bells Kettlebell Now Available!

Onnit's Bigfoot Sasquatch Primal Bells Kettlebell Now Available!Late last week Onnit finally released what it has been teasing for literally months: the Onnit Bigfoot Primal Bells kettlebell! Yup, the same one that The Rock uses. If you get one, you’ll be big and strong like him! (Just kidding, normal people likely can’t even lift the thing.)

On the topic of weight, the Onnit Bigfoot/Sasquatch Primal Bell tips the scales at a hefty 2.5 pood, or 90.28 lbs. Not quite 100 lbs. yet still enough to make you feel like a wimp when you realize there’s no way you’ll be able to exercise with the thing. Maybe start off with the Howler, move on to the Chimp, then to the Orangutan, followed by the Gorilla, and then give Bigfoot a try.

But you don’t necessarily need to exercise with the thing. I know there are some people who just collect the Primal Bells, Zombie Bells (sold out), and Legend Bells to display in the home as decoration. The sculpts are cool enough that a collection of them can act as artwork in the home.

Each one of Onnit’s kettlebells and specialty bells are made with chip-resistant iron so they’re virtually bomb-proof. They’re all balanced as well, so they’re fully functional and can be used daily. You don’t necessarily need to keep these on display and never use them. Beat them up and they’ll still look amazing. Some people even go so far as to paint them to take it to the next level.

You’ll notice that I’m referring to the Bigfoot kettlebell as a Primal Bell rather than a Legend Bell. Despite the fact that Bigfoot doesn’t actually exist, Onnit released the Bigfoot kettlebell under its Primal Bells line rather than the Legend Bells line. Confused? I am too.

The Bigfoot Primal Bell kettlebell is available now on the Onnit Labs website, priced at just under $215. Order one and feel bad for the poor sap who will have to drag it up the stairs to your doorstep.

 

 

A 360 Degree Comparison of Onnit’s Primal Bells, Zombie Bells, and Legend Bells

One of the biggest sources of traffic to my little blog is from people who are searching for more information about Onnit’s three different lines of specialty kettlebells, the Primal Bells, Zombie Bells, and its newest line, the Legend Bells. While the first two series have been completely released, the newest Legend Bells line is just beginning. The first in the series was the Werewolf Legend Bell and the word on the street is that the Legend Bells will be a line of famous monsters. The next likely release in the Legend Bells line will be a Bigfoot Legend Bell, but that isn’t 100 percent confirmed just yet.

Because the appeal of the Primal, Zombie, and Legend Bells is the appearance of the kettlebells, I decided to dedicate a single blog post to outline each of the bells in each of the lines. Below you’ll find 360 degree views of each of the bells so you can see just how well they’re sculpted and how they look from all sides and angles.

Each of these specialty kettlebells features enlarged handles for increased grip strength and they’re crafted with chip-resistant iron. They’ve all been custom sculpted for Onnit and all are 3D scanned to ensure perfect balance. This means that when you’re using one of the specialty kettlebells for exercising, they’ll perform just as well as a normal kettlebell would but they look infinitely more badass. Of course, if you want to keep them as artistic sculptures to display, you can do that too!

Since the Primal Bells were the first line of specialty kettlebells that Onnit introduced, let’s start with those:

The Onnit Chimp Primal Bell

The Chimp Primal Bell was the first specialty kettlebell released by Onnit. It weighs in at one pood, which is 36 lbs. for those of you who aren’t familiar with archaic weight measurements.

The Onnit Gorilla Primal Bell

The next release in the Onnit Primal Bell line was the Gorilla kettlebell. It’s the heaviest of the bunch, weighing in at a hefty two poods, or 72 lbs.

The Onnit Orangutan Primal Bell

The strangest looking of the Primal Bell bunch is the Orangutan Primal Bell with it’s wide face weighing in at 1.5 poods, or 54 lbs.

The Onnit Howler Primal Bell

The last in the Primal Bell line was the Howler Primal Bell, and it was also the lightest of the bunch, weighing in at a scant half pood, or 18 lbs.

Around Halloween last year Onnit introduced the Zombie Bells. If I remember correctly, it dropped all of these at once rather than releasing them slowly one by one. Unfortunately these are no longer available and Onnit didn’t post any 360 degree views of these bad boys. I believe that now that they’re all sold out, they won’t be made again. So if you didn’t buy one in time, you’re out of luck I’m afraid.

The Onnit Zombie Bells

From left to right we have the Mega Dead Zombie Bell weighing 72 lbs. followed by the Ghostface Thrilla tipping the scales at 54 lbs. followed by the Staple Head Zombie Bell weighing 36 lbs. and finally the Brain Goblin is the smallest of the bunch weighing 18 lbs.

Joe Rogan has a fascination with large hairy monsters, and if you’re a religious listener of his podcast The Joe Rogan Experience, you probably already know this. He has a giant life-size replica of a werewolf in his podcast studio, and he went looking for Bigfoot in his television series Joe Rogan Questions Everything. What the other two Legend Bells will be I do not know, but I’m sure they will be just as awesome as the other Onnit specialty kettlebells.

The Onnit Werewolf Legend Bell

The first in the Legend Bell line doesn’t seem to follow the weight pattern set by the other two kettlebell lines. The Werewolf Legend Bell weighs in at 28kg, or 62 lbs. I’m not exactly sure why Onnit chooses to weigh some in poods, all in pounds, and then the Legend Bells in kilograms. Not that it matters, but it’s just something that I noticed.

And there we have it guys! A complete guide to the different sizes and weights of the specialty kettlebells along with 360 degree views of each of the ones that are still for sale. For those of you who glossed over the words in the rest of the blog post but you’re reading this summary, the Primal Bells are all currently available and can be purchased as a bundle for a discounted price. The Zombie Bells are sold out and as far as I know will not be made available again. The Legend Bells line is just starting and it’s unknown how many kettlebells will be made available in this line, nor is it known if this is a limited edition like the Zombie Bells.

Onnit Introduces New Primal SteelBells

Onnit Introduces New Primal SteelBellsContinuing with its primate theme, Onnit Labs has now dropped a new product which bears the “primal” monicker: Onnit Primal SteelBells. The company has partnered with HyperWear to create this new Onnit-branded piece of exercise equipment.

So what is a SteelBell? If you’ve never seen one before, then it’s probably not what you’re imagining it looks like. While the name would make you think of something hard and solid, an Onnit Primal SteelBell is actually softer and more fluid to use. It’s circular in shape, almost like a round neoprene beanbag filled with steel shot, which is essentially a whole lot of tiny metal balls.

You can do similar exercises with both a kettlebell and an Onnit Primal SteelBell, including presses, squats, and lunges, but a SteelBell allows you to integrate “slam drills” where you literally slam the SteelBell down onto the ground. A SteelBell can also improve grip and crush/pinch strength in a way that a kettlebell cannot.

Anyone who’s looking for a new workout to add to their regimen should give these Onnit Primal SteelBells a try. They’re relatively inexpensive all things considered; they’ll provide you with a new workout to keep your body guessing; and they allow you to do something that you can’t do with kettlebells: slam them into the ground! Get your aggression out in a positive and beneficial way.

The new Onnit Primal SteelBells start at $40 for a 10 lb. SteelBell while the heaviest 50 lb. version will set you back $150. 20 lb., 30 lb., and 40 lb. varieties are also available at the Onnit website.
