The Rogue Axle - Powdercoated

$180.00 CAD

Rogue Axle

Deceptively Simple Grip Training

A collaborative effort between the Rogue team and Rob Orlando of Hybrid Athletics, the powder-coated, 1.9” diameter Rogue Axle offers athletes an effective change of pace for any lifting regimen, promoting greater wrist and grip strength. The bar measures 84" in total length, with 15.5” of loadable sleeve length and 52” between the collars.

From presses to rows to deadlifts, the Axle makes for a more challenging but ultimately more beneficial workout, emphasizing the muscles in the hands in a way standard bars can’t. It’s the same principles that have made fat bars an essential part of the modern Strongman training arsenal. A more compact 5’ version of this bar, the Stubby Axle, is also available.

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

The Rogue Axle - Powdercoated is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good bar It’s a good axle bar and does the job. like other reviews have mentioned, the Rogue decal peeled right off in the first few days, and ripped some of the powder coating off. I don’t know why Rogue doesn’t fix this issue, or just lose the poorly glued decal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Deadlift game changer My deadlift has been increasing by ~20lbs a week thanks to this bad boy. Grip strength is definitely getting better as well, only downside I can think of is that the coating starts chipping off the first day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I really like the quality of the powdercoated axle bar. Wanted to work on my grip strength and this is helping. Must have for my strongman workouts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job Was looking for a way to improve grip strength along with making lifts more difficult at the same time. This bar does the trick. Also makes back squats a little more comfortable on the shoulder area. The rogue label is rather cheap, just a sticker that actually pulls off the coating so be careful removing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's the spiffiest... ...2" pipe I've ever bought. It does all the things a 2" pipe converted for weightlifting could hope to do. The powder coating is excellent, it protects the bar from the weather, and provides some texture for gripping. It's really one of the best axle bars I've ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Axle Bar Awesome alternative to a straight bar... I like it for shoulder presses, flat bench, and line mine exercises...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Its alright I've had the bar maybe a month and the paint is already gone on the edges. If you don't care about that tho it's alright I guess. You get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool to help with grip strength. Have been using the axle bar since the plandemic happened, use it for bench press, military press, bent over rows and deadlifts. Has help with my grip strength. I would recommend it to wrestlers.
