Product Summary & Specs

More than ever before, young athletes are honing their weightlifting skills well before they reach a high school weight room. For this reason, Rogue felt it was high time for a world class, lightweight kids barbell–designed to help beginners become competitors. The T-2.5KG Technique Bar is made in the USA and includes a single needle bearing per sleeve–making it one of the highest quality children’s bars ever constructed.

A great item to pair with our Rogue KS-1 Kids Squat Stand, the 51″ T-2.5KG Tech Bar features a 22.2MM diameter aluminum shaft with a loadable sleeve length of 4.125″. The maximum load capacity is 40LB, and the 1.96″ sleeve diameter makes the bar fully compatible with most standard size bumper plates. We have also included three distinct sets of knurl marks to guide an athlete’s transition from the tech bar to a standard oly bar:

The use of needle bearings gives this lightweight, mini tech bar a uniquely smooth, consistent spin–ideal for helping a kid develop good habits and form. Traditional children’s barbells have rarely if ever utilized this type of sleeve construction.

Each T-2.5KG Technique Bar is produced in Columbus, Ohio, and held to the same high standards as any full-size adult barbell in our fleet. The precision-built aluminum shaft measures 22.2MM in diameter and 51.00″ in length, while the bearing sleeves have a loadable length of 4.125″. Our initial run of the T-2.5KG will be bare aluminum, but we’re also producing a line of these bars with anodized sleeves in a wide range of colors.

The 1.96″ sleeve diameter makes the T-2.5KG Tech Bar fully compatible with most standard size bumper plates, with a max load capacity topping out at 40LB.
