What makes the BRAINGAIN 32kg Adjustable Dumbbell (2kg increment) so special?

One of the most common questions we hear at BRAINGAIN is: what makes the 32kg Adjustable Dumbbells (2kg increment) so special? Along with our 40kg Octagon Adjustable Dumbbells, the 32kg 2kg increment adjustable dumbbells are BY FAR our best sellers, with this blog post covering the reasons around what makes them so special compared to other adjustable dumbbells. Some of the areas we’ll cover include:

  • Handle Length
  • Mechanism
  • Increments
  • Durability
  • Price

Handle Length

The first defining feature of the BRAINGAIN 32kg Adjustable Dumbbells is that the length of the handle changes depending on the weight selected - choosing 2kg has a significantly shorter length than 32kg which makes it more versatile when doing certain exercises where you really want to maximize range of motion or isolation exercises like bicep curls, shoulder presses, lateral raises. 

The BRAINGAIN 32kg Adjustable Dumbbell is one of very few adjustable dumbbells on the market that has this feature at the 32kg weight option. 

Relative to our first generation 24kg Adjustable Dumbbell, 25kg Adjustable Dumbbell or 40kg Adjustable Dumbbell, the length remains the same no matter what weight is selected, which makes the 32kg Adjustable Dumbbell a much improved option. 


Simply twist the handle and the smart tech mechanism picks up the exact number of plates for the weight you’ve selected. The safe lock technology means the weight can only be changed when the adjustable dumbbells are in their cradle which ensures 100% safety. 

The mechanism on the 32kg Adjustable Dumbbells is a significant improvement on the old style spin lock adjustable dumbbells and other adjustable dumbbell mechanisms on the market. The mechanism allows you to effortlessly change the weight in 2-5 seconds vs other adjustable dumbbells which are closer to 10-15 seconds. 


The BRAINGAIN 32kg Adjustable Dumbbell (2kg increment) comes in 2kg increments, from 2kg to 32kg, all at the twist of a handle. This is the equivalent of 16 pairs of dumbbells in 1 making them a great time, space and money saver. 

The standard 2kg increments make them stand out to other adjustable dumbbells on the market that are less regular and can sometimes jump from 1.5kg all the way up to 4kg, which makes it more difficult to move up in the weights you’re doing. There is a separate model available that goes up to 32kg, however in 4kg increments, which is also a popular choice. 


The BRAINGAIN 32kg Adjustable Dumbbells have been built with a commercial market in mind, whereas most other adjustable dumbbells are created more for the home market. This leads to a higher quality and more durable design mechanism that is designed to withstand multiple users a day. 

The BRAINGAIN 32kg Adjustable Dumbbells are being by Personal Trainers and Fitness Studios across the UK and Europe for their clients and have given great feedback to date. 


We pride ourselves on high quality equipment but at affordable prices - we think working out, from home in particular, should be accessible to everyone no matter what. The 32kg Adjustable Dumbbells are no exception to that - we have undertaken a market assessment and can see that the BRAINGAIN adjustable dumbbells are AT LEAST £200 cheaper than similar adjustable dumbbells that are sold. It is worth noting they are AT LEAST £600 cheaper than buying an equivalent set of 16 fixed weight dumbbells. 


The premium quality, improved mechanism and overall design of the 32kg Adjustable Dumbbells make them one of the best, if not the best, adjustable dumbbells on the market. Whilst they are cheaper than other adjustable dumbbells on the market and purchasing the equivalent number of fixed weight dumbbells, we appreciate they are still a significant investment, however if you’re looking for home gym equipment that will stay with you on your journey, then these are the adjustable dumbbells for you!
