First thing - make sure you click the red link above and read the full product writeup! The Transformer Bar is practically 3 bars in one. Using the first lever height, the bar's mechanics act identically to a Duffalo Bar and allows for a similar squat movement pattern as a regular bar. The Transformer Bar also acts like a regular cambered bar, and of course it is a fully adjustable Safety Squat Bar (SSB) with an industry-first adjustable camber angle and lever height. It allows the lifter to control the height of the camber (4 different settings) as well as the angle (variable by 30 degrees all the way around).

What is the distance collar to collar please?
The distance between the inside of each bracket is 51 inches
What is the distance between the two handles? Any idea when these will be available again. Thanks
The distance between the two handles is 12 inches. There is a 1-2 week lead time.
Are the handles threaded on, or welded to the bar? I do a lot of Hatfield squats and always remove the handles of the SSB bar while doing them.
They are welded.
I just ordered a transformer bar and what to know the recommend storage method?
It can be stored in a rack, or bar holder. Due to the black oxide finish being only mildly corrosion resistant it is recommended to be stored in a climate controlled dry area.
How long are the handles?
The handles come out 22 inches from the bar center
What version is this? I've seen info on V1 and V2 versions.
This is the V3.
What are the differences between V2 and V3? My local store has V2 stocked.
The V2 was a version that had a machined end, but it was flat as opposed to rounded, but can still be used for doing soft tissue work. This was only run briefly and it's possible that they have the V1, which has an open end on the flared end.
Hello, Will you be making more transformer bars? I signed up for updates but would like to know if it will be back in production all together....we ordered the Duffalo Bar as well.
Yes, the Transformer Bar is planned to be back in production at some point. We are working through some manufacturing and production issues prior to releasing it for sale.
How much weight can be put on the transformer bar?
The transformer bar is rated for up to 1500 lbs
Two questions: 1.0 - Is the Transformer Bar available with the genuine leather pad yet? 2.0 - Is it possible to remove/replace the pad cover just in case it does wear thin?
The cover is completely replaceable, but that shouldn't an an issue as the material is fairly durable.
After our initial run of the bars we have opted to not have the leather pads just for logistical reasons of sourcing the material and having them made at a location separate from our current one.
Is there loose pieces for the ajustement or its all in one piece?
So at each end of the bar is 12-angle bracket allows for 360 degrees of variation (30 degree increments) in angle of the weight relative to the lifter. this allows the bar could be used as both a regular cambered bar, and a safety squat bar among many others. These two cages are locked into place with screws.
Is there a warranty on the bar? And do you give military discount?
We have a warranty for manufacturing defects. We do offer a military discount: MILITARY at check out
