Kabuki Kadillac Bar

The Kabuki Strength Kadillac Bar is manufactured in Ohio by Rogue Fitness and now comes standard with knurled handles and a Signature Texture Black powdercoat finish. Customers can also choose to upgrade to our Proprietary Matte Black sleeve finish, which uses a process that effectively transforms the surface of the steel rather than coating it, greatly increasing the sleeves’ long-term corrosion resistance and color endurance (this upgrade comes with black mounting hardware).

Cambered to the same angle as Kabuki’s Duffalo Bar, the Kadillac Bar is a specialty neutral grip / football bar that enables a full range of motion, with convenient rackability on any standard power rack (40.5” to 52.5”). The bar includes 1.33” diameter handles spaced 15.3”, 22.3”, and 29.2” apart, with 10°, 12.5°, and 15° grip angles. The variability of handle placement and angles offers countless variations in exercises and progressions, and also promotes optimal, stacked joint position and improved movement mechanics.

Athletes can utilize the Kadillac Bar in both standard and reverse grip positions, and the precision-machined, zinc-plated sleeves (with 16.7” loadable length) enable the use of regular barbell collars. The sleeves are also removable, reducing the overall shipping cost. A 9/16” wrench and 7/32” hex key are included for easy assembly.

While the Kadillac Bar is primarily a bench press / neutral grip football barbell, it can also be used for curls, skull crushers, rows, lat pull-downs, and more.

*Please Note: The optional Proprietary Matte Black metal treatment process also hardens the steel, which can cause some additional friction with plates that have a chamfer.

Key Features of the Kadillac Bar

Loading
1

Multiple Knurled Handles

Now manufactured by Rogue Fitness, the new Kadillac Bar includes a set of (6) 1.33” diameter handles spaced at 15.3”, 22.3”, and 29.2” apart. Combined with the cambered design of the bar, this creates three different angles for hand positioning, at 10°, 12.5°, or 15°. Along with enabling more types of exercises and progressions, this variation in grip options also promotes optimal, stacked joint position and improved movement mechanics for athletes of any size or experience level.

Beneficial Cambered Design

The 1/4” laser-cut frame of the Kadillac Bar is cambered or angled in the same manner as the Kabuki Duffalo Bar, and similarly can help reduce stress on the shoulders, biceps, and back, while enabling scapular retraction and superior joint centration. In the form of a multi-grip bar, the camber also improves stability and opens up a greater range of motion when the athletes uses the outer handles for exercises like the bench or rows.

Two Sleeve Finish Options

The precision-machined sleeves of the Kadillac Bar are available in your choice of either our Signature Texture Black powdercoat finish or our premium Proprietary Matte Black finish. The PMB option utilizes a process that effectively transforms the surface of the steel rather than coating it, greatly increasing the sleeves’ long-term corrosion resistance and color endurance. Black hardware is included with the Matte Black sleeves for mounting to the frame. Please Note: The Proprietary Matte Black metal treatment process also hardens the steel, which can cause some additional friction with plates that have a chamfer.

Absolutely Love this Bar!
This is where great design meets excellent quality with superb customer service. Absolutely love using this bar. I’m getting more grey in my whiskers yet I still enjoy moving weight with longevity and shoulder protection being at the top of my list. Excellent product! Highly recommend.

Good bar with room for improvement
About 5 mos of weekly use. I like the knurling and spacing/angling of the grips. Nice solid feel. The sleeves could be improved. Maybe combination of open sleeve design toward handles or aggressive ribbing on sleeves, but it is annoyingly loud. If it were like my Ohio bar it would be perfect. I reached out to Kabuki who recommended a light oiling of the sleeves, but hard to say for sure if it improved. Not sure if I'd buy again.

Awesome. Get it.
Fantastic bar. Transformative tool. The arch is a perfect stretch for bench and rowing. Handles are comfortable and handle angles are perfect. Don't think twice.

Bar is perfect but sleeve are a burden
Bar frame is well designed and balanced. Sleeves I'm sure work well for others but I dislike them. First the ribbed sleeves irritates me like the sound of fingernails on a chalkboard. The the sleeve length makes it a risk factor unless you have like 3ft of clearance to load plates. I think a shorter sleeve option should be sold separately. I ordered the Rogue narrow cambered bar with the short sleeves and that fixed all my issues. I don't even pick up the kadillac bar anymore because of difficulty of use. I hope they address the sleeve length so I can put it back in rotation someday because I love the bar

Infinitely Better than Version 1
So, when I saw that Rogue was making this bar, I sold my original version of the bar quickly to fund this purchase. All I can say is the bar is significantly better because of the knurling (which feels like the TB-2 knurling). I also got the black matte sleeves which gives this a very premium look. Packaging was exceptional, this bar and Rogue deserve a medal!

The best made better
Best Swiss/ football bar ever. Local gym has the bar so I decided to buy it. Adding the knurling and simplifying the way the shafts input are huge game changers.

Unsure at first but now I love it!
The additional hand holds lure you into more sets and reps. The bar is balanced. Also great for curls and other lifts. It has improved my chest workouts.

Great bar, but be careful with movements
I recently received this bar about two weeks ago and have been using it in my SSTT program near the end of my peak. I should have probably waited before throwing this into rotation because the stretch from the camber is becoming too intense to implement fully. I think easing into this bar is where I needed to start. On another note, in order to fully implement this bar you need to slightly rotate the bar aft in order to create lat stiffness and a good arch. Overall I think I his bar will increase my tricep strength immensely.
