Rogue Stubby Axle

$127.00 CAD

Rogue Stubby Axle

Deceptively Simple Grip Training

Featuring the same over-sized 1.9” outside diameter as the standard Rogue Axle, the Stubby Axle is two feet shorter (5’ vs. 7’)—with 8” of loadable sleeve length and a condensed 43” between the collars. This creates a challenging, change-of-pace fat bar, and another excellent option for building better wrist and grip strength without deviating much from your regular lifting regimen.

The Rogue Stubby Axle has been battle tested in competition at the Reebok CrossFit Games, and includes our signature black powder coat finish for a firm, comfortable grip.

IMPORTANT: Some standard barbell collars may not work on this specialty bar. We recommend using either the Rogue HG Axle Collars or the OSO Axle Collars.

Rogue Stubby Axle is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 52.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, short bar I built a custom wall rack in my basement and needed a bar that was not the standard width with my limited room. This bar fits great, quality built and feels sturdy. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Rogue Stubby Axle Solid bar. I started setting up my home for some workouts. This bar at 5ft length is excellent barbell to start at 20lbs. The grip diameter being at 1.9inch feels different, but great. I bought Rogue HG Axle Collars and a pair of 5lbs Rogue Machined weights too. Well made products by Rogue Fitness. I am loving my setup. Looking forward to moving to higher weights soon

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great entry level bar for form and grip. Clean, short, simple design. Nice uniform welds on the rings. Has solid plastic caps at the ends. Mine was pretty banged up around the rings, enough to create a flat spot and chip the coating. I totally blame the carrier, not Rogue, but the rings could be better protected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped my grip a lot Great bar, can do everything that you can do with a normal bar but build your grip at the same time, glad I bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stubby Axel Love it, it’s shorter so easier to store in my garage and I can still get a great workout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bar My wife bought me this during quarantine and it is a fantastic bar. I was torn between this and a full length and I think I made the right choice for a small home gym. In addition to being a bit shorter than an Olympic bar, the thickness really helps build grip strength as advertised, it works great with standard plates, and I can use it in our small livingroom without having to worry about being clumsy and putting a hole in the wall. Definitely get the clips Rogue recommends though. I tried with some standard clips and they slid off.
