Hades Deadlift Bar
Raising the bar. These barbells were over 10 years in the making – the fusion of customer insights, rigorous testing, thousands of reps by different types of athletes, and our decades of experience in both lifting and designing quality, innovative gym equipment. That’s how we know these will be the best barbells you’ll ever put your hands on. The Hades Deadlift Bar is REP’s top-tier deadlifting-specific barbell. This 20kg (44.1lb) bar features no center knurling and very aggressive, deep, mountain-style knurling to provide maximum grip support for heavy deadlifts. The thinner diameter shaft (27mm vs. 29mm for a standard powerlifting barbell) and longer total length (7.6’ vs. 7.3’) allows for more flex under heavy loads. The added flex in the shaft allows the lifter to pull from a slightly higher position as the weight leaves the ground, which is more optimal, and can contribute to heavier lifts. All measurements of the Hades bar adhere to powerlifting standards for federations that use a deadlift bar. Powerlifting knurl markings help with proper hand placement. The Hades Deadlift Bar is offered in a black Cerakote shaft with Duracoat™ sleeves for a distinct, blacked out look. Duracoat™ is a chemical process that hardens the outside of the steel, making it more wear resistant and adding a high degree of corrosion resistance. The sleeves are smooth for easy loading and unloading of the plates. And the 15.75” loadable sleeve length, longer than most other deadlift bars, means space for more weight plates on the bar. Bronze bushings are great for slower, strength-focused lifts and allow for consistent rotation, while ensuring incredible strength and stiffness to withstand heavy loads. The bar is topped off with premium metal endcaps featuring unique designs and laser etchings of the barbell name and weight on the inside of the sleeves. We have tested the Hades Deadlift Bar with some of the strongest people on the planet. Reach a new deadlift PR.

【DEEP MOUNTAIN KNURLING】
Very aggressive, deep, mountain-style knurling ensures the lifter has a secure grip on the bar while deadlifting, and knurl markings help with proper hand placement.
Smooth sleeves are easier and quieter to load than ribbed sleeves, and the bronze bushing construction is ideal for slower, strength-focused lifts, like deadlifting.
This is a premium barbell with high-end details, like laser etchings of the barbell name and weight; a tribute to Colorado, where REP was founded, on the inside of the sleeves; and metal endcaps featuring unique designs.
