Benefits of the Short Rackable Utility Bar

  • COMPACT GYM LIFESAVER
    Whether you’re lifting in a broom closet under the stairs (is that you, Harry?) or looking to optimize the usability of your Hydra Trident Station, a short rackable barbell is a saving grace for a space-constrained home gym. At just 69 inches long, the Short Utility Bar is remarkably easier to maneuver. Fit landmine exercises where you otherwise couldn’t. Store it in a Vertical Bar Holder, despite having 8-foot ceilings (we see you, basement dweller). A shorter length even makes loading weight plates easier, so you no longer have to dodge the ends of your bar like Neo from The Matrix 🕶
  • SHORT RACKABLE ALL-STAR
    Sometimes, the best does come in small packages — we took our best-selling Utility Barbell and (literally) trimmed some off the top, while still allowing it to be racked in a power rack up to 49 inches wide with room to spare. This means you also get its most beloved features; versatile 28.5mm diameter, dual knurl markings, centre knurl for better grip on squats, and a durable black zinc coating. We even matched the sleeve finish for an all-black look that’ll turn heads. The shorter version is more practical for deadlifts and the Olympic lifts; but with its 900lb capacity, this rackable short barbell takes the cake for squats and bench presses in tight quarters 🏋️‍♀️
  • COMMERCIAL GYM CHAMPION
    This short barbell isn’t just for home gym enthusiasts, commercial gym owners will appreciate its compactness just as much. By saving 17.6 inches compared to a typical Olympic bar, your gym will feel more spacious whether your clients are doing deadlifts and rows or cleans and snatches. Combined with the Short Utility Bar, you can place your power racks or the stations of your rig closer together for even more space gainz. All this, so you can coach larger groups in the same amount of time — great for their sense of community, and your bottom line 💰

Beautiful Bar

Super happy with the quality of this bar. Beautiful finish, the grip is easy on the hands and the plates slide super smooth on the sleeves. Perfect length. The barbell was extremely well protected and wrapped for shipping!
