The uniqueness of StairMaster adjustable dumbbells is due to their weight adjustment system known as ‘TwistLock’. It has a handle which is twistable and to change the weight you just have to twist the handle and off you go. This is the first time a company has provided with such technology which is very easy to use and gains theattention of many fitness lovers. StairMaster TwistLock adjustable dumbbells are very highly rated by the ones who have used them, but still they are not that much popular for the ones who haven’t. The StairMaster TwistLock dumbbells come with an average weight range of five pounds to fifty pounds per dumbbell. You can’t increment the weight to 2.5lbs. per side to have a more precise weight setting especially to steadily build your strength. Next, you cannot add more weight when it reaches its maximum weight limit of 50lbs. However, the dumbbells are pretty tough and are not easily breakable.
The new invention by StairMaster Pair of TwistLock is one of a kind when it comes to speed of weight change in adjustable dumbbells When you rotate the handle, the weight plates which are attached to the dumbbell using a metal pin attracts the plate. So if you want a weight of twenty-five pounds let’s say you have to first twist the handle to number twenty-five, then you’ll see how the pin that is coming from the handle of dumbbells grabs the plate to make the weight look 25lbs. Hence, this is a very unique system which works pretty well. The designs and looks of some adjustable dumbbells are not that much aesthetic whatsoever how brilliant their feature is; design also plays a great role. That’s why StairMaster also worked well to give StairMaster TwistLock Adjustable dumbbells a very eye warming design. With their unique appearance and durable manufacturing these dumbbells will draw the attention of many athletes. Also, with a lot of new features and technology these dumbbells clearly outstand other adjustable dumbbells. Hence, giving you one more reason why they should be purchased with a stand for home workout.
The plates, handles and overall extravagant design offer an ergonomic fit like no other.

Final Verdict and Review
These dumbbells priced almost twice than the world’s best Bowflex SelectTech Adjustable dumbbells with are much lesser with weight range so I won’t be picking StairMaster over Bowflex just because of its adjustment system and cool design. The next issue is obviously the durability.Whether in gym or home, there is a time when you get very motivated and on the run with your sets and reps there is a chance you can drop the dumbbells for a time or two and because of the plastic components attached with the StairMaster you can’t do that act. Making these dumbbells very easy to break. The handle was very comfortable which was fitting very easily and tightly on my hands and was giving me a natural dumbbell feel too. That was very nice for me yet the balancing and adjustment was one of its best features.
