  • Even weight distribution: The bow shape ensures that the load is evenly distributed across the back and shoulders – making it easier to handle larger weights without the bar rolling.
  • Maintains movement integrity: Unlike Cambered or Yoke bars, the Bow Bar doesn’t alter as your body moves, allowing for a more natural lifting technique.
  • Support for multiple lifts: Fully knurled for a secure grip, the Bow Bar is ideal for squats, Hise shrugs, good mornings, and lunges.
  • Increased safety and comfort: The bar's design minimises discomfort and the potential for injury when performing heavy squats.

Bow Bar

Meine wiegt exakt 24.1Kg. Sie wurde mit leichten Beschädigungen an der Riffelung geliefert. Nicht so schlimm, dass es mir die Haut am Rücken aufreißen würde. Ich setze die BowBar als weitere Variante zu lowbar Squat und Box-Squat (sonst mit SSB) ein. Das für mich kippelige Gefühl dieser Bar ist eine neue Erfahrung.

Great Bar

Ich trainiere jetzt schon seit 20 Jahren und habe so einige Spezial Hantelstangen ausprobiert und lieben gelernt,aber die Buffalo Bar erschien mir immer überflüssig . Habe mich trotzdem entschieden eine zu kaufen und ich hätte nie gedacht das sie so einen Unterschied macht. Jede einzelne Übung fühlt sich um einiges besser mit ihr an. Besonders hervorzuheben ist das Schulter oder Nackendrücken. Man kommt noch einen Tick tiefer in die Dehnung und es fühlt sich einfach für die Handgelenke und Schultern unglaublich natürlich an...meine absolute Lieblingshantel und das schon nach kurzer Zeit. Knurling und dicke dieser Stange sind auch top. Alles in allem wirkt sie unzerstörbar... unbedingte Kaufempfehlung

Perfect Bow Bar

This bar is amazing for the price. Great quality.
Strengthshop used to have an older model that had some problems. The coating came off as sharp metal shards and the sleeve bolts got loose with use.
THIS IS NOT THE SAME MODEL. Everything has been perfected.

Best bar for squats!

I bought this bar specifically for squats and it is awesome. It is very comfortable on my back and arms are in a better position. It is very thick compared to a regular bar and it allows for a better grip. If you are serious about squats this is a great buy! Also the price is awesome compared to alternatives.

DIe Bow Bar entspricht der Beschreibung, wurde sehr schnell geliefert und macht Spaß im Training. Sorgt für die notwendige Variation bei Squats und Bench Press.
