Product Summary

Bowflex SelectTech 2080 Adjustable Barbell is an adjustable barbell that comes with a straight bar and curl bar. Both come with passive knurling, a black oxide finish, and a weight range that starts at 20 pounds and goes up to 80.

This is not a replacement for an Olympic barbell, but rather those fixed straight and curl bars that you often see at commercial gyms. It’s great for accessory movements or HIIT-style workouts, but we suggest you don’t drop it since it’s made with lots of plastic and could easily break.

It also feels different from traditional bars in that it’s a little harder to overcome the inertia at the top of lifts due to the weight plates’ designs.
