Compared to a carbon fiber-enhanced running shoe or a bike that won one of the toughest dirt road races in America, a vibrating ball might not seem like a formidable candidate for the best fitness products of the year. Well, after testing thousands of products of the course of 2019, Gear Patrol staffers proved that assumption wrong. Of Hyperice’s Hypersphere Mini, our tester writes, “Smaller and yet more powerful than a traditional foam roller, the Mini will soon be your new go-to for everything from a foot roll-out to a deep-tissue total-body massage.”
Size and power work together to make the Hypersphere Mini both convenient and effective, which is a potent blend for any recovery tool. Match that with a rare 24 percent discount at REI, and you’ve got yourself the perfect last-minute gift (even if you’re giving it to yourself).
