The trap bar is a terrific aid for the deadlift and is considered by many much superior to a straight bar for sport specific training. It reduces spine stress relative to the straight bar deadlift, and puts the arms and hands into a near-perfect position.

Great Improvements! A Must Have!

Bought three new 2.0 trap bars to replace the original Bells of Steel trap bars. These new ones are as advertised! 58lbs each, med-aggressive knurl and great Olympic length sleeves. Would recommend to anyone looking for a trap bar. Best bar for the best price on the market in my opinion.

Love this hex bar

We shopped around and did our due diligence during this purchase. It's for personal use and use with our patients (physical therapy clinic in the states). This product exceeded our expectations. Well constructed with excellent weld joints, smooth collar action, perfect knurling... Highly recommended! We're in the states and the process to order and ship from Canada was seamless.

Trap Bar / Hex Bar 2.0

This trap bar rocks! Very solid piece and high quality. Love using it for deadlifts. The rolling sleeves make the movement feel great and the extra length allow use of a lot of bumper plates with ease. At $197 this is a must own!

Good Quality, Better Price, Inconsistent Knurling

This is my third B.o.S. trap bar purchased for my gym. Best price around for a good quality 45lb bar. My only concern is the inconsistency of the knurling between the three bars. I want consistency when its advertised as 'medium'. 1 bar is medium, 2 bars are light.

The trap bar, also known as a Hex Bar, is one of the greatest innovations in strength training equipment.

The Trap Bar 2.0 is the worlds first full length rotating sleeve hex bar.

Designed by Bells of Steel founder Kaevon, this trap bar was upgraded to accommodate our most requested feedback:

1. Full length rotating Olympic sleeves “how many plates can it fit?” is by far the most asked question about our trap bar. So I thought it made sense to make the sleeves the standard length. On top of this, I added brass bushings, so the sleeves rotate like any bar would, it just makes for a better and safer lifting experience.

2. Aggressive knurling. considering deadlifts are what hex bars are almost exclusively used for, I wanted an aggressive knurl like on our power bar (or any good quality power bar for that matter).

3. Black/Bright Zinc finish Not only is zinc an excellent finish for mid-range bars, the aesthetic color combo compliments and gym.

4. Enhanced packaging Because of their awkward shape and weight, trap bars are notorious for breaking through their box in transit and getting damaged. In addition to heavy duty cardboard and straps, I added in wood lining to help prevent the bar from shifting inside the box during transit and busting through.

A bold statement about a bold bar, the trap bar is a terrific aid for the deadlift and is considered by many much superior to a straight bar. It reduces spine stress relative to the straight bar deadlift and puts the arms and hands into a near-perfect position. It also makes the lowering of the bar a reverse of the ascent. With a straight bar, lowering the weight can be a problem. This is because the knees get in the way more on the descent than they do on the ascent. The extent of this depends on the individual structure.

This rhombus-like bar lets users get the best benefits from the deadlift while keeping technique problems to a minimum and is fantastic for beginners. It is an outstanding bar. All who use it will benefit.

If you are a competitive powerlifter and thus must use a straight bar at meets and in most of your training, a trap bar can still be a valuable “off” season training tool. It greatly reduces unnecessary stress but while developing strength that may have carry-over value to the straight bar deadlift (or even squat).

The trap bar was originally patented in 1985 by a powerlifting aficionado named Al Gerard, who was trying to find a way to train around a recurring lower back injury. It has since gained widespread support among many coaches as a back-friendly alternative to both traditional straight-bar deadlifts and squats.

Studies have shown the Trap Bar to be able to develop more power than regular deadlifts, less stress on the spine and being more beneficial for beginner athletes because of the ergonomic design.

There truly should be a trap bar in every gym.
