OVERVIEW

The Ares Cable Attachment is a fully integrated, functional trainer and lat pull down / low row attachment that fixes to your existing PR-4000 or PR-5000 power rack. This saves major space, by bringing a ton more versatility and cable exercises inside the rack, while preserving nearly all the original functionality. The Ares features dual weight stacks of 260lbs each (with an option to upgrade to 310lbs per stack) that you can use for unilateral exercises. Or connect both stacks together for bilateral movements that demand heavier weight, like lat pull-downs. The trolleys are designed with a smooth plastic liner that’s easy to adjust up and down with one hand.

The front pulleys swivel 180 degrees for versatile movements and work outside the rack. Hot-rolled steel plates with a machined finish assure consistent and durable weights that the magnetized pin slides into smoothly. A metallic black finished shroud, with a recessed stainless steel REP logo, features laser cut windows to see the weights moving. The 2:1 ratio means 100lbs feels like 50lbs, ideal for functional training. The Ares comes with a footplate to brace against during low rows, four micro-adjustment 2.5lbs weights, D handles, a knurled chrome lat pull-down bar and low row bar, and a connector banana. If Ares is the God of War, this is the attachment to train you for it.

FAQS

  • What's the benefit to pre-ordering the Ares?

    The Ares pre-order will be $100 off for both the 4000 series and 5000 series until 4/20/2022 at 12:00 am MST. In addition, for our loyal customers who already own a PR-4000 we are including a new set of the upgraded 16" PR-4000 crossmembers, until October 2022, as a thank you.

  • Which power racks are compatible with the Ares?

    Only the PR-4000 and PR-5000 series power racks are compatible with the Ares. For the PR-4000, you will need to upgrade to the 16” cross-members with vertical holes. For PR-4000 rack owners - a new set of the upgraded 16" PR-4000 crossmembers will be included until October of 2022. PR-5000 owners should verify they own the V2 PR-5000 power rack, which has 1” holes along the upright, whereas V1 has alternating 5/8” holes and 1” holes.

  • What rack configurations will the Ares fit on?

    * The PR-4000 6-post rack with 24", 30", or 41" cross-members in the front with 16" cross-members in the back, or two sets of 16" cross-members to save space.   

    * The PR-4000 4-post rack with only the 16" cross-members.   

    * The PR-5000 6-post rack with 30" or 41" cross-members in the front with 16" cross-members in the back, or two sets of 16" cross-members to save space. 

    * The PR-5000 4-post rack with only the 16” cross-members.

  • How do I know if I have a V1 PR-5000?

    PR-5000 V1’s have alternation 1” and 5/8” holes along the upright and is not compatible with the Ares. The V1 was discontinued in 2020.  

  • What is the weight capacity on the trolley and cables?

    The weight capacity for both the cable and the trolleys is 450lbs

  • What is the ratio of the pulleys and the cable travel?

    The pulleys are a 2:1 ratio. A 93” rack has 96” of cable travel and an 80” has 72” of cable travel. The depth of the rack does not affect cable travel. 

  • How much do the weight stacks weigh?

    The weight stacks are 260lbs each with the option to upgrade them to 310lbs each. They also come with labels that tell you how the weight stacks feel for ease of use. No math required. 

  • Do I need to bolt the rack down with the Ares?

    We always recommend bolting the rack down for safety. With the 4-Post Ares Attachment, we recommend using our Front Foot Extensions

  • What if I cut out holes in my mats for the uprights?

    You will also need to clear a section in the back so the Ares components can rest on the floor. We also touch on this in the Ares Engineering Video.

  • If I eventually change the depth of my rack, will my Ares still work?

    You will need to change your cable length if you change the depth of your rack. Cable packages will be sold separately so you can upgrade.

  • Will there be a plate-loaded version of the Ares?

    We are working on quite a few cable attachment options, including plate-loaded and selectorized, but they may not look exactly like the Ares. We do not currently have any public release dates for these new products.

  • Do I need a specific color of uprights?

    Not necessarily. While the matte black finish does have some texture, the trolleys will still work just fine. But the trolly will work best on our other finishes.

  • Does the Ares work with the Rear Base Stabilizer?

    No, the Ares completely replaces the Rear Base Stabilizer.

  • Can I use the ISO Arms?

    Yes, and we demonstrate how to integrate the Ares and the ISO Arms in the Ares Engineering Video.

  • Can I use the Belt Squat Attachment on the low pulleys?

    Yes, and we demonstrate how to use the Belt Squat Attachment in the Ares Engineering Video.

  • Are any pull-up bars not compatible with the Ares?

    The multi-grip pull-up bar is not compatible with the 16” + 16” cross-member configuration (of the PR-4000 and PR-5000). The globe grip is not compatible with the 41” front cross-member + 16” back cross-member configuration of the PR-(4000 and PR-5000). The Globe Grip was updated in 2020. The older version will not work with any configuration of the Ares.


    *The 4-post power rack compatible with the Ares does not include a pull-up bar that is compatible with the configuration (...yet).*

  • Is the Ares compatible with other brands of power racks?

    No. The Ares was designed for REP brand PR-4000 and PR-5000 series racks. Even if other racks have a 47” rack, there is no standardization across hole patterns, metric measurements, height, thickness of powdercoat, etc. We will not guarantee the fit of an Ares on anything other than a REP rack.

  • How does the Ares ship?

    The Ares ships LTL Freight. After we ship it with one of our shipping partners and it’s on the way to your address, someone will call you to schedule a time and date to drop it off. A semitrailer will arrive with a wooden crate, and inside the crate, we’ve securely packaged the Ares in multiple boxes to allow just a single person to bring it into their garage, basement, or gym. We are shipping over 1,000lbs, and this is the most secure and protected way to ship the Ares to you.

  • What if I already own the Lat/Low Row Attachment?

    Currently, the Ares system completely replaces our current plate-loaded lat pull-down and low row attachment with a selectorized lat pull-down and low row and functional trainer system all in one. (“Selectorized” refers to your ability to select the desired weight with a pin.) We are developing other options that integrate with the plate-loaded Lat/Low Row Attachment that will allow you to add the functional trainer capabilities.  

  • What exercises can I do on the Ares?

    The number of exercises you can perform is long, but just to name a few: curls, tricep pushdowns, cable flies, lateral leg raises, donkey kicks, lateral arm raises, rehab/prehab shoulder work, mid rows, wood chops, face pulls, belt squats with our attachment, seated cable flies, and since there are so many attachment points, it is easy to superset between exercises.

  • What else should I consider getting with my Ares?
    We would recommend purchasing additional Cable Attachments , as well as upgrading the Ares Weight Stack
