Add variety to your training with REP’s Axle Bar. This bar is thicker, shorter, and lighter than the standard Basic Barbell. The Axle Bar features an extra-thick, 2” diameter to strengthen your wrists and grip. It’s also short, available in 5’ or 7’ lengths, and it weighs just 17lbs or 22lbs, respectively. (By comparison, the Basic Barbell is 1.2” thick, 7.3’ long, and weighs 44.1lbs.)
The Axle Bar comes with specialty collars, although standard collars are compatible. It is finished with a durable matte black powder coating throughout the entire barbell. It works with 2” Olympic iron plates and bumper plates on its sleeves, which are 13.8” (for the 5’) and 15.8” (for the 7’ bar). The Axle Bar can handle a 700lb load.

Are your barbells compatible with other branded plates?
Rep's barbells are designed to work with any standard plates featuring 2" diameter center holes.
Do standard barbell collars and spring clips fit?
Yes, but our Axle Bars come with their own pair of specialty locking collars.
How well does the powder coating protect the metal?
The protective matte black powder coat makes the bar highly durable, although metal-to-metal contact with the powder-coated sleeves (such as adding and removing plates) may cause wear to the finish over time.
Does the Axle Bar have a warranty?
Yes, it comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
