Pros & Cons

What we like ...
  • Max weight load of more than 800 pounds
  • Easy assembly
  • Bar camber allows for better balance during pressing
  • At under $300, it’s a great value for a specialty bar
What needs improvement ...
  • The knurling on this bar is on the passive side and inconsistent between the grips
  • The sleeves don’t disconnect from the Swiss bar, so they’ll be on there when you’re using it for lat pulldowns (only slightly annoying)

Product Summary

The REP Fitness Cambered Swiss Bar is an incredible value for a specialty bar at less than $300 with free shipping. It has a multi-grip Swiss bar, with a powder coat finish, built with round tubing so it feels comfortable on your chest during pressing. It also features chrome-plated Olympic sleeves on either end.

This Swiss bar features passive knurling on all grips, and a removable eye bolt screw so you can attach it to any cable machine for lat pulldowns or low rows. Our two complaints is that the eye bolt screw has to be removed during pressing movements (it can hit your chest if left in), and the sleeves can’t be detached quickly when you want to use it on a cable machine.

Overall, we’d recommend this specialty bar for most home gym owners looking to diversify their barbell collection. It’s not the best on the market, but it’s certainly the best value out there.
