Think of the Kayezen VECTOR as elastic resistance training…. reinvented! This single, 3-pound device holds 8 resistance tubes that you can customize according to your needs. With a simple turn of the VECTOR Cap, you “dial in” the number of resistance tubes to pull for your exercise: either 4, 6, or 8 tubes. No more rummaging through your gym bag to switch from color-to-color of bands or tubing….. You have from 10 lbs to over 100 lbs in one VECTOR.
Using carabiners, one end of the VECTOR hooks to an anchor point: a doorway, heavy exercise equipment like an exercise bike, or a fence at the ball-field. Are you going to take a variety of hand weights or kettlebells with you to the park? Take your VECTOR anywhere! The other end of the VECTOR is for your accessories, like handles.
Kayezen VECTOR extends the resistance range beyond what is possible with traditional bands and tubing. Typical resistance bands and tubing deliver ONE level of resistance, often color-coded to reflect ‘easy’, ‘moderate’ or ‘heavy’ resistance. Weight equivalent levels range from 3 lbs to 50 lb+ ‘super bands’.
With all Kayezen VECTOR Light tubes (5 lb each), the resistance range is 20 to 40 lbs. With all Kayezen VECTOR Heavy tubes (13.5 lbs each), the range is 50 to 100 lbs. And keep in mind that you can customize your VECTOR with a mix of Light and Heavy tubes! Is 100 lbs not enough for you? Pull 2X the amount of resistance with a Dual VECTOR system - working with one VECTOR in each hand.
Adjusting resistance levels is easy with a twist of the VECTOR cap. If for example you can do bicep curls with 30 pounds but need to dial up to 40 lbs for a military press…. It’s easy with VECTOR. With resistance bands/tubing you need to stop your workout and find a different color band or tube and set everything up.
Working with different body parts is also easy by swapping accessories. Doing leg lifts with typical resistance bands and tubing involves wrapping the band around your ankle, which can be uncomfortable. The VECTOR Cinch Strap has lots of padding to make it comfortable, and you can easily shift it from ankle to knee to thigh….. And even to your arm for upper body work
VECTOR is best if you have space constraints in your workout area, or if you travel frequently and need a TSA-friendly size for carry-on luggage. Otherwise, opt for a VECTOR+, which gives you 15 inches of additional pull range for your workouts. Whichever size you choose, the resistance range of each VECTOR is from 10 - 100 lbs.
VECTOR’s SINGLE MOBILE SYSTEM is a great way to start, and is best for those who won’t need more than 100 lbs of resistance. Those who want to take it to the next level should try a DUAL MOBILE SYSTEM, which allows you to work out with 2 VECTORs. [This also works for couples who don’t want to share!] With 4 VECTORs, the VECTOR PRO MOBILE SYSTEM is perfect for personal trainers, coaches, and athletes who want instant access to a wide range of single and dual resistance levels.

The outside cover of the VECTOR can be wiped down with a disinfectant wipe or non-abrasive cleaner and soft cotton cloth. Do not use ammonia or acid-based cleaners, abrasive cleaners or paper towels. The internal tubes are housed inside the unit and should be regularly inspected for wear. There’s no need to clean the internal tubes.
Your VECTOR system is perfect to take with you. The VECTOR is TSA-compliant for placement in a carry-on. The VECTOR+ can travel, but you’ll need to place it in your checked luggage. Don’t forget your Multi Anchor and accessories for your hotel workouts.
SETTING UP AND ADJUSTING THE VECTOR
VECTORS can be anchored with a carabiner anywhere, including wall mounts, doors, fences, benches and posts. Find the FIXED loop end (U-shaped) of your VECTOR and attach a Kayezen carabiner (or any carabiner rated for 12 kN or higher) to it. Then, attach the VECTOR with Carabiner to your Kayezen Multi Anchor, Kayezen or similar secure wall mount, or other secure anchor point.
Look for the VECTOR CAP and the ‘swivel loop’ at the end. Attach a Kayezen carabiner (or any carabiner rated for 12 kN or higher) to your VECTOR, and then attach the accessory to the carabiner.
Now that you’re anchored and you’ve attached an accessory, changing resistance is as simple as twisting the VECTOR cap. Always make sure the cap is closed before twisting it to change resistance.
Start by twisting the cap so that the arrow points to Level 1 (a single horizontal blue line). Pull against the resistance. At Level 1, 4 tubes are engaged. Return to the starting point with the cap closed. Twist the cap to Level 2 (2 horizontal blue lines) and see how that feels. At Level 2, 6 tubes are engaged. Return to the starting point with the cap closed. Twist the cap to Level 3 (3 horizontal blue lines) and see how the resistance increases. At Level 3, all 8 tubes are engaged.
