Holiday Wish List: HyperIce Vyper, a Vibrating Foam Roller That Provides More Relief With Less Effort

Its ridged design and three vibrating speeds make the HyperIce Vyper a top choice among foam rollers.

The Vyper's design is also novel. Instead of a perfectly smooth cylinder, it has 16 small ridges on the exterior. You can roll on it smoothly like you would with a traditional foam roller, but the tiny ridges dig into soft tissue a bit deeper. It's not a huge difference, but it is noticeable.

Due to its vibrating core, the Vyper is heavier than traditional foam rollers. However, it's still light and compact enough to carry in your gym bag.

In terms of setup, the Vyper comes with an AC charger that can plug into any wall outlet. It has a fairly short charge time and a complement of LEDs that display its current battery level.  A full charge gets you about 2 hours of usage.
