Roll Recovery enters the percussion therapy arena with the compact R1

BOULDER, Colo. (June 14, 2022)- Roll Recovery, a leader in recovery and athletic performance and innovators of deep tissue massage therapy tools, announces today the launch of the new R1 Percussion Massage Device.

Designed to prime the body pre-workout and accelerate recovery post-workout, the R1 boasts a compelling set of features at an accessible price of $129. With its small size compared to other percussive massage devices on the market, the R1 delivers a premium experience with its supremely quiet motor and long-lasting (7+ hours) battery wrapped in an attractive package. Built with the highest quality of materials and an unparalleled design, the R1 is a perfect complement to Roll Recovery’s arsenal of exceptional recovery tools.

“As we explored the percussion device market, we discovered the majority of percussion devices were loud, oversized and overpriced plastic bodies with pretty poor battery life,” said Jeremy Nelson, Founder and CEO of Roll Recovery. “The goal behind designing the R1 was to create a product that is sleek and compact, powerful, exceptionally quiet and has a long battery life, with some pretty neat color options to add a little bling to our lives. We’re very happy with the outcome, as it complements our current line-up of rolling and compression recovery products. The R1 is another helpful tool to add to an athlete’s recovery methods.”

Tested and inspired by elite athletes, the R1 Percussion Massage Device uses the force of percussive therapy to improve performance and accelerate recovery. With four simple speeds ranging from 1800 RPM to 3200 RPM and interchangeable massage head attachments, the R1 is adjustable to your workout needs. The R1 can be used pre-workout, for increased range of motion and flexibility, improving muscular strength and enhancing neuromuscular performance; or post-workout, for facilitating blood flow, loosening stiff muscles, reducing localized muscle pain and preventing DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness). Additionally, with the right settings, the R1’s percussive therapy features are also helpful in calming the nervous system and can improve sleep quality and thus furthering tissue repair.

The technical specifications of the R1 back its attractive design:
*Portable due to its lightweight and compact characteristics, making it a perfect fit for a gym bag and a travel companion.
*Weight: 1.4 lbs (0.57kg)
*Dimensions: 5.6″ x 3.6″ x 1.85″ (14.2cm x 9.1cm x 4.7cm).
