Riiflex by powerplay is a great addition to any Wii video game, especially for any of the workout games. Riiflex is a dumbell set that weighs 2 lbs each. One of them is made just the right size for the Wii mote to fit inside. It is a perfect fit and with the sleeve of the Wii mote it’s actually just a tad bit tight. There is no worrying about the Wiimote falling out of Riiflex. The riiflex dumbbells interact with the sensor bar with no issues.
I let Miles help me out with this review and he told me that they were a bit heavy but he is only 2. I found them heavy after a while too but I’m quite a bit out of shape. I have no upper body strength. By using weights with any workout you are increasing your activity level and I’m all about that. I’m also very happy that gaming systems are getting people off of their buts and exercising.
Here are a few different angles of the Riiflex dumbbells.
Riiflex dumbbells retail $29.99 for a pair.
- Adds 2lb. of resistance to your Wii workout
- Allows full functionality of Wiimotes
- Compatible with Wii Motion Plus and many aftermarket Wiimotes
- Durable, gym-quality construction
- Try it with Wii Fit Plus, EA Sports Active, Fitness Ultimatum, Golds Gym Cardio, Your Shape, My Fitness Coach, and more!
Why Riiflex over the competition?
- Compatibility: Most competitive products on the market today are not compatible with Wii Motion Plus, the latest motion-sensing attachment to the Wii controllers.
- Durability: Competitive products are made from cheap plastic and filled with sand or concrete for weight. Because they’re manufactured like toys rather than fitness equipment, these products typically crack or break with only moderate use.
- Usability: The most popular designs on the market require cumbersome installation that includes feeding cables through the end of the weight and attaching extra pieces to secure the controllers.
