Rogue Stubby Axle

€109.50 Incl. Tax €132.50

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 4.5 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alternative to a barbell Because of the limited space the stubby was the perfect choice. Absolutely brutal on the forearms.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 2 Issues That Need To Be Addressed Overall the bar is good, but there are 2 main flaws I see that should be addressed. 1. There is no markings on the inside of the bar for hand placement other than the center line. Adding 2 additional marks, one on each side, like a typical bar has, would be greatly appreciated. 2. The bar is too short to rack properly. With the distance between collars of 43", that means the collars will not fit outside of a normal rack setup . I own the Rogue Monster Westside bench and the bar should be at least 48 inches between collars, but probably 50 inches. If you want to keep the bar the same length, move the collars further out by 3 inches on either side. that would fix the issue. Fix the issues above and you have a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, sturdy Love the size of the stubby bar! Great for small spaces and changes up the stimulus with training. No knurl with this bar, but the coating gives a little extra friction. The bar is solid construction so no spin, as is common with axle bars. Regular collars don’t work on this bar because the “sleeve” it is slightly smaller, so go for the HG axle collars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loose Plates I wanted to be super satisfied with my Stubby Axle, but I am alright with it. The size, weight, grip and finish are spot on. Suggested Clips are tight and solid. However, my bumper plates, have a significant amount of wiggle room. Maybe some take will help, hope it does at least. PS. Just take the sticker off!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice This is often a good option to a full width Olympic bar. The good: Smoother to use in areas with limited space. Option to start with only 10kg apposed to a standard olympic bars 20kg. Much thicker grip diameter promoting more muscle growth and spare the skin on your hands. Semi smooth painted surface gives good grip and also spare the skin on your hands. The not so good: No marks on bar so I put some contrasting scotch tape in center and sides. The bar came damaged cased by poor protective packing. This was mostly esthetics though, but non the less un unnecessary flaw. This application did not allow me to upload photos...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar Love the coating, can't go wrong with this bar. Olympic plates have a little room on the bar, but I don't mind considering the simplicity, price, and functionality of this bar. Plus, in my small town house, it fits very conveniently under the couch!
