Designed and manufactured in Italy from the most excellent materials with our attention to detail, the bar features a strong open-side frame construction made of matt black powder-coated steel with two neutral grip handles, giving the option of pulling from two different heights. Both sets of knurled, parallel handles measure 30mm in diameter and are spaced 63,5 cm on centre.

Why the open side?

It will maximize the number of movements you can do with the trap bar, accouching a broad range of lifting and training possibilities. Safely perform deadlifts, trap shrugs, lunge variations, single-leg squats, box step-ups, loaded carries, Zercher squats, Zercher deadlifts, and many more “outside the box” movements.

Less stress on the spine

Because you can step “inside” the bar (central load), the horizontal axis shortens and significantly reduces the amount of force on the spine. The neutral – heigh or low – grip, leads to a more upright torso position, allowing your hips to sit lower. It also allows the knees to move more forward without scraping your shins at the bottom of the deadlift. With this optimal position for deadlifting, you will reduce the back injury risk and boost your results.

More power

Not only are the movements performed with the trap bar more safer than compared to the straight bar, but they are also more effective for developing maximum power. Since power is a measure of an object’s force times its velocity, this means that the movements performed with trap bar will allow you to lift more weight, over a greater distance much faster.
