The Kratos is different than anything we’ve done before. At first glance it might look complex, but at its core the Kratos generates its training effect through one of the most basic laws that govern the physical universe. In classic physics, Issac Newton’s first law tells us that an object in motion tends to stay in motion, unless acted upon by an outside force. YOU are that outside force, and in this case the object is a rotating mass called a flywheel. Effort exerted by the athlete *into* the flywheel is stored as potential mechanical energy and immediately released back. Because resistance isn’t determined by a predetermined weight but rather by effort, this allows for a variety of different use cases and applications you can read more about below. The Kratos is unique as an inertial/eccentric training device due its patent pending design that allows for both horizontal and vertical training in a single, compact unit with a large, non-elevated base.

Kabuki Kratos Flywheel Review: Horizontal and Vertical Pulling in One Unit (2024)Author: Cooper Mitchell
If you’re reading this, I assume you’re probably pretty familiar with the brand Kabuki Strength. In the past few years, they’ve put out some of my favorite products including the versatile Trap Bar, Transformer Bar V4, and New Generation Power Bar. Kabuki recently released a flywheel, and I’ve been itching to try it.In this Kabuki Kratos Flywheel review, I’ll walk you through what’s included, unique aspects of this product, and my final thoughts. As always, I’ll give you all the details you need to make a smart buying decision for you.For those of you who aren’t familiar with flywheel training, it can be an effective way to build strength within your body’s connective tissue. It can also increase overall power, muscle hypertrophy, and force.Essentially, it’s useful for eccentric overload training where the muscle is stretched during both the lifting and lowering of your reps. The resistance is inertia driven, which means it is all based on how much force the user puts into the movement with the flywheel. Read the full review.
