Product Summary

The newly redesigned T-5KG Technique Bar is now fully machined and assembled at our Columbus, Ohio plant, and includes a bare aluminum construction with two precision needle bearings in each sleeve. With Olympic knurl marks and IWF standard spacing between the collars, this is another lightweight Rogue training bar optimized for helping athletes transition smoothly from lightweight training to the use of a men’s or women’s competition barbell.

A set of needle bearings in each sleeve gives the T-5KG Tech Bar a uniquely smooth, consistent spin. Traditional technique barbells have rarely ever utilized this type of sleeve construction, and it introduces a high-end performance category into lightweight training.

A tech bar is most effective when it’s designed to prepare you for what’s next, whether you’re a young athlete using your first barbell, an amateur looking to safely practice your form, or an experienced lifter working your way back from an injury. The T-5KG is ideally suited for all these circumstances, offering a lightweight, manageable Olympic training bar with knurling and collar spacing accurate to IWF regulations.

We now manufacture the T-5KG right here in Columbus, Ohio, using a lightweight but durable bare-aluminum construction. The shaft measures 25MM in diameter and 79.13″ in length, while the bearing sleeves offer a loadable length of 12.50″. The single Oly knurl marks feature an exclusive Rogue pattern for a firm but non-abrasive hold.

The 1.96″ sleeve diameter makes the T-5KG Tech Bar fully compatible with most standard size bumper plates, with a max load capacity topping out at 45LB, or 20KG. This bar is NOT built for for loads in excess of that amount, and athletes are also advised against dropping the bar when loaded.
