LEG DAY SUCKS.

WHY MAKE IT WORSE?

Plot twist: your joints have a new love interest.

Squats are supposed to hurt -- but not your heart. Breaking up is hard to do.

But squats aren't your ex: they can change. In fact, we changed them. Read the love notes yourself

FAQs

Please read our FAQs page to find out more.

What is the difference between a power bar and squat bar?

A traditional competition power bar is 29 mm in diameter and weights 20 kg, with specific length and dimensional tolerances. The squat bar is a lift-specific competition barbell for the Squat event. It’s diameter is generally thicker (in our case 31.75 mm) and weights more than a standard power bar. Our 250k Squat Bar weights 25 kilograms. Additionally, the squat bar features a fully knurled center shaft with powerlifting and center markings.

What does the higher tensile strength and hardness mean in practical terms?

A bar’s metallurgical properties are the primary determining factors in the mechanical properties of the bar, or in more practical terms, how the bar behaves in the lifter hands against gravity and the force generated. The yield strength of the metal determines how much stress it can take before permanent deformation, while the tensile strength measures its breaking, or fracture point. The softer, or lower strength a bar is - the more it bends under load. The harder, or higher yield/tensile strength a bar is - the less it bends under load. Each of these options varies the feel or oscillation of a bar under load, and the art of bar design comes in determining the fine dance between the bars properties and how it behaves under load, against gravity. One downside of higher tensile strength is brittleness, or catastrophic failure (not bending, but cracking under tension).

What is the difference between Kabuknurl and other bar’s knurl?

The 250k Squat Bar is fully knurled from sleeve to sleeve. Our knurl was designed from the ground up and based on established research to 1) be the “stickiest” knurl possible - on the back or in-hand, 2) minimize dermal penetration and damage to skin, and 3) maximize neural response.

Can this bar be used in sanctioned powerlifting competitions?

Yes, the 250k Squat Bar meets the competition specifications for powerlifting federations that allow the use of a squat-specific barbell - like the IPL/USPA, WRPF, SPF, APA, and others.
