Product Summary

With a slightly smaller grip than the Odin Power Bar by Griffin, the 2.0 is a more suitable bar if you prefer Crossfit-style workouts or if you are looking for a more cost-effective addition to your home gym. It doesn’t include the center knurl, but it does offer a lot of other great features at a more affordable price.

With its high tensile strength rating paired with a sleek black carbon coating, this bar is made to hold up to daily wear and tear in the gym. The materials are low-maintenance, but remain high-performance. The smooth coating also makes it easy to slide your plates on and off of the roomy 17.52-inch sleeve.
