Rival Open Hex Bar 2.0



Rival Strength's Open Hex Bar 2.0 has been designed to add further functionality to a classic Hex Bar. The Open Hex Bar 2.0 gives you more freedom due to it's unique design, and allows you to better perform deadlifts, lunges, farmer walks, shrugs and even train grip strength. 

We have designed the bar to include rotating handles, with 3 different thicknesses to train grip strength, while accommodating for people with different hand sizes.

The handles thicknesses are 25mm / 38mm / 50mm in diameter and are all knurled for improved grip.

The feet allow for easy loading and unloading of plates, putting the bar in its upright position means plates can slide on and off the sleeves easily without having to lift the bar off the ground.

The barbell has a maximum load capacity of 200KG, giving plenty of room to reach heavy lifts. 

A pair of Olympic Spring Collars are included with the bar.

Suitable for all weight plates with an Olympic 50mm / 2" hole diameter.
