The REP Fitness Open Trap Bar combines some of the greatest features found on two of the nicest open trap bars—the Kabuki Strength Trap Bar and the Eleiko Öppen Trap Bar—to create one of the best value specialty bars on the market today. There are many reasons why this trap bar is one of the best options for many home gym owners, beginning with the fact that it can hold an impressive 1,350 pounds.
In addition to its open design, which makes it more versatile and allows the lifter to easily step in and out of the bar, the REP Fitness Open Trap Bar comes with removable handles. This turns the bar into a cambered-design bar, somewhat similar to a safety squat bar, which allows it to be used for presses and squats. Speaking of squats, there are six inches of knurling on the frame to help the bar stick to your back should you use it for back squats.
The REP Fitness Open Trap Bar also comes with its own built-in deadlift jack for easy loading and unloading of plates, and can be racked on squat racks up to 49 inches wide.
