Product Summary

Version 2.0 of the Rogue TB-1 Trap Bar features the same general design and dimensions of the original, but with an updated, precision sleeve construction that reduces the starting weight of the bar by more than 25 percent. This makes the TB-1 easier to maneuver without limiting its effectiveness. Simply put, if you want to lift massive weight, this tool still belongs in your arsenal.

The Trap Bar’s hexagonal design and knurled, neutral grip handles make it optimized for performing deadlifts that put less stress on the lumbar spine–since the load is centered and not off axis like a traditional deadlift. This same benefit makes the TB-1 2.0 a useful specialty bar for beginners, as well as athletes dealing with nagging back issues or rehabbing from other injuries.

We manufacture the TB-1 in Columbus, OH, and it’s fully compatible with standard Oly plates.


  • Neutral Grip Handles, Spaced 25″ on center with easy-grip knurling, 1.34″ diameter
  • Newly Redesigned Olympic Sleeves: Schedule 80 with Welded Caps, 1.91″ diameter
  • 16″ Loadable sleeve space
  • Finish: Signature black powder coat
  • Weight: 58LB (unloaded)
