Common X3 Resistance Band Questions

What’s the difference between the X3 bands and other resistance bands? #

You can purchase X3 directly from the official Jaquish Biomedical store . The bands that come with the X3 are made through a layering process. With 15 total layers of natural latex this adds durability and strength to the X3 resistance bands. The individual layers helps prevent the bands from snapping or breaking unlike other cheaper resistance bands. It also means that we can apply very high forces (in some cases over 600 lbs!) just with a resistance band!

Do I need the X3 Elite Band? #

You can purchase X3 directly from the official Jaquish Biomedical store . The X3 Elite band is a beast! It is a 41 inch loop that generates 110 to 300+ pounds, and over 600 pounds when doubled over. We generally recommend that most people try the bands that are included with the X3 before looking at getting an X3 Elite band.

You will want to be able to do at least 40 slow and controlled reps with the included black band before moving to the Elite.

Do you offer any lighter resistance bands? #

You can purchase X3 directly from the official Jaquish Biomedical store . At this time, we do not offer any lighter resistance bands than what is included with the X3.

There is a company called Serious Steel that makes light weight, high quality resistance bands that work well with the X3.

These two bands they provide that are lighter than ours:

Serious Steel #0 1/4 in. Orange Band, 2–15 lbs (0.9–6.8 kg), on Amazon.com or from Serious Steel

Serious Steel #1 1/2 in. Purple Band, 5–35 lbs (2.3–15.9 kg), on Amazon.com or from Serious Steel

How long do the X3 bands last? #

Due to our custom layering process, X3 bands are durable. They should last about 7 years before they end up losing enough tension that you would want to replace them. Some signs of wear on the outer layers is normal.

Why does my X3 band look worn, frayed, or torn? #

Latex is a soft material, and as such, it can take little nicks and scratches on the first layer facing the outside. This is no cause for alarm and the difference is purely cosmetic.

Think about a new set of tires. They look great the day you buy the car, but after you drive 500 miles on them, then definitely don’t look new anymore. Still, they are good to drive another 40k miles on them.

If you believe your band is damaged beyond normal wear, please send a photo to customer service and we can look at its condition.
