Tyr Lifters

Everything about Hitchhikers

What are hitchhikers?

Lifters are sports shoes specially designed for weightlifting. You therefore wear lifters during exercises such as the back squat, front squat, overhead squat, snatch and clean & jerk.

Why do you use lifters?

You use lifters because Crossfit is all about moving as much weight as possible in as little time as possible. With lifters you are more stable and can therefore move more weight! Lifters are robust, stiff and have a raised heel. The heel gives you less flexibility and your posture is better.

Using lifters therefore has several advantages:

  • Solid base
  • Better posture
  • Lift more weight

Which lifters do you want?

If you're going for the best lifters, you want TYR lifters. These lifters are worn by the top of the Crossfit world.

TYR L-1 lifters have a natural fit, adjustable double straps and a flat wide sole. So they are sturdy, provide better posture and allow you to lift more weight.
