Availability: Out of stock

The classic Strongman Axle.

This bar has been used by Strongmen for years in competition and training. It's larger diameter shaft makes it a beast to hold when loaded up for a Deadlift. To give you an idea of the size of the bar, grab the end sleeve of a regular Olympic sized bar. Yes, it's that thick!

If you're looking to add some serious grip training to your routine or are a serious Strongman competitor then this is the bar for you. The Axle can be used for Deadlifts, Squats, Bench Press, Overhead Press, Clean and Press, Bent Over Rows.... the list goes on and on.

With the growing popularity of Crossfit this bar has also become popular with many Athletes who follow the Crossfit Strongman program or who want to make "Grace" a little more interesting.

It's versatility and robust design make this an essential piece of kit for any strength athlete.

Best axle bar I have ever used. Awesome durability. The knurling is as good as a high-end standard bar. Very impressive. I look forward to owning more products.

Extremely satisfied
Been using this bar for a few months now on all types of benching, dead lifts and OHP and have been nothing but satisfied with it. It is solid built and can definitely handle some heavy weight without any flex in the bar. Has no rotation either when doing cleans.

Axle Bar
Always wanted an axle bar and received this one as a gift for my birthday. It is an excellent bit of kit for Crossfitters and will benefit your barbell movements massively due to the thickness & non-rotating collars developing grip strength and allowing less room for error with standard cleans, etc.

Mine weighed in at a precise 20.0 kg (quoted as approx 25kg?!), which is exactly what I wanted anyway.

GET ONE NOW, you will not be disappointed!

Axle Bar
Super fast delivery, excellent value, fantastic bar! We've been punishing people with this bar every day since it turned up! The knurling makes it excellent for pressing.

50mm Thick Bar Review
The 50mm Thick bar is a top quality piece of equipment, a solid 25kg with excellent knurling and chrome finish. Have begun using it for grip work (just holding the bar with some weight added for as long as possible), and started to see results within a few sessions. Increased grip performance on other exercises as well as a definite increase in forearm size. The best forearm burn ever! Very good value for money, well worth the investment.

I used this at a friend's home gym for power cleans. Excellent in quality, a great training tool indeed. We are looking forward to using it lots in the near future for the axle squats in our next competition.
Brilliant bit of kit!

Axle Bar
Excellent good quality bar ,very good value for the money. A few years ago i paid a lot more money for an Axle from a well established strength equipment supplier, that Axle does not even come close to the quality of the strength shop Axle. I would be surprised if you purchased one of these bars and was not happy with it. Review by ALAN / (Posted on 1/20/2012)
