Pairs well with:

Neutral bar placement

With a safety squat bar, the weight is positioned in the centre of gravity. When first using the Riot Olympic Safety Squat Bar, it may feel as if the weight is a bit in the front, but it's actually somewhere between a back squat and front squat, in a neutral position. 

The safety bar is also ideal for training when having injuries or in a recovery process. Limited shoulder mobility is also something where an SSB can be practical. BUT don’t think it’s just a rehab bar. The strongest lifters incorporate this special barbell into their training schedules. Because of its positioning, you’ll be squatting with a more upright back and increased taxation of your anterior chain. It allows for slightly more weight to be moved than conventional.

!!! Please note: The bar and the pad are shipped separately.

Knurling for safe grip

Even though the shape is different, the bar can be racked with most hooks. The diameter of the bar is 50mm at the sleeves and bar shaft. Comfortable and securely: the grip is knurled.

Improved: robust pads 

The new pads are made in a one-piece way with a strong Velcro in the back and of synthetic leather. They’re tight fitted and robust, so also with heavy loads it will provide comfortable cushioning

In case you want to upgrade your old pad or need to replace the pads, you’ll find the individual & improved pads here.

Great product for a great price

This safety squat bar gives amazing value for the money. The “one piece” cushion and handles feel really sturdy.
