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.

Best hex bar for the money
Finding a good hex bar with Olympic bar length sleeves is nearly impossible. Especially for under $300 and under 80 inches in length. This bar is both! The handles are easy to grip and the two tone finish is easy on the eyes
Thank you for the review Harry! We appreciate the feedback!
Hex Bar 2.0 by B.o.S.
It has been great! I love my new Hex Bar, the quality and price can't be beat. Great customer service.
Thanks Joseph! Happy lifting!
Great Trap Bar
This bar is really nice. Sleeves are beautiful, knurling is just right and welds are clean. A little sad the price jumped up $50 after I waited 6 weeks to purchase but at that point I was all in. I do like the bar though so I won’t complain too much.
Thanks for the review Scott! Happy to see you are enjoying the bar!
Trap Bar / Hex Bar 2.0
Great product. Solid. Delivery service tried their best to beat it up, but bar arrived intact.
Thanks Jonathan! We are happy to hear you are enjoying the bar!
Well built. Good size inside where you stand. Sleeves are just like a regular bar. Aggressive knurling. Higher handle height not too high, handles perfect width. I've been training for 23 years and have some equipment I had custom made to my specs. Box was damaged but not bar, they should just double strap and shrink wrap entire box. This bar is exactly how I would of designed it, highly recommend.
Thank you for the review Andon! We are happy to hear you are enjoying the bar. We also appreciate the feedback as well! Happy lifting!

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 Supports and Wraps 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.
