The Rogue Axle - Powdercoated

€138.50 Incl. Tax €167.59

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 7 feet (2.13 meters) 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 the Rogue Metal Axle Collars.

The Rogue Axle - Powdercoated is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bar but powder coat peels on sleeve area Great bar. Very sturdy and affordable. Only complaint is powder coat peeling after racing weights over and over. I would suggest to rogue to not add powder coat to sleeves where weights are racked. the finish on the sleeves looks nice when you first purchase it, but it becomes a nuisance having to constantly vacuum up paint chips as it peels with continued use. I ended up having to sand the paint off so this wouldn’t happen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bar Like the bar and the coating. Couldn’t find Olympic bar w Knut king so this was next option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality This is awesome for pressing and grip strength training. Without knurling, it can be quite difficult with even moderate weight overhand deadlift and it will take your clean and press to a new level.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid I’ve had this axle about a month so far and love to mess around with it. After training with a barbell for years, it’s nice to switch it up for a different element. It also seems like a solid product that will last forever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value Great value overall but competely devoid of any markings of any sort so a bit of a hassle trying to find your grip...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent way to burn up your grip Just got this and have used it a few times. It does a great job of changing up the workouts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it, but not pretty. I have big hands and the axle bar just feels so much better than a normal barbell. Unfortunately, the powder coating is mediocre. Parts of the coating had already flaked off during shipping. I could understand if I dropped it, banged it or otherwise was rough using the bar, but powdercoat damage in shipping? Really?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid change of pace bar Bought this a month ago so my box would have it to prepare for events. Works well and does the job!
