This little foam roller is great for taking to the gym or for travel. While some movement can be limited, the TriggerPoint Mini foam roller is effective for pinpointing trigger points and sore muscles on your arms and legs. With only 5″ long and a 5.5″ diameter, the TriggerPoint Mini is the perfect travel foam roller!
If you are familiar with the original Trigger Point Grid (see our review), you will recognize the design of the TriggerPoint Mini instantly. TriggerPoint has created a truly unique foam roller with its Grid series. Each Grid, whether it is the original or the Mini, is made from EVA foam that is wrapped around a hollow core. This construction technique gives the Grid its durability while using far less foam than its competitors. The result is a very durable product. Unlike many of other foam rollers, this one is not going to start to lose form after repeated use.
The size of the Mini is an advantage (for traveling) and a disadvantage. There are just some exercises you cannot do with the Mini. Anything that requires you to have both legs or your back on the Mini is going to be difficult. For home use, we recommend the classic full-size The Grid instead.
You can also buy the Mini directly from TriggerPoint for $24.99.
