Product Description

The MG-4C is the latest evolution of the Rogue specialty multi-grip barbell, available here with a 3.5” cambered frame (for a flat frame version, see the MG-4F Multi-Grip Bar). Our patent pending design offers two major advantages over other multi-grip bars on the market:

  1. The sleeves rotate in the style of a standard barbell and come in your choice of two nearly indestructible finishes.
  2. Athletes can select both the width and angle of the handles, building a bar that is optimized for their size and training preferences.

The MG-4C’s friction welded sleeves, which are available with 9” of loadable length or 15.5” of loadable length, use the same internal components as our standard barbells and rotate on shafts made from the same stainless steel as our power bars. The distance between the sleeves is also the standard 51.5”, making the bar rackable on any Rogue power rack, squat stand, rig, or bench.

MG-4C CAMBER MULTI-GRIP BAR

The MG-4C is the latest evolution of the Rogue specialty multi-grip barbell, available here with a 3.5” cambered frame (for a flat frame version, see the MG-4F Multi-Grip Bar). Our patent pending design offers two major advantages over other multi-grip bars on the market:

  1. The sleeves rotate in the style of a standard barbell and come in your choice of two nearly indestructible finishes.
  2. Athletes can select both the width and angle of the handles, building a bar that is optimized for their size and training preferences.

The MG-4C’s friction welded sleeves, which are available with 9” of loadable length or 15.5” of loadable length, use the same internal components as our standard barbells and rotate on shafts made from the same stainless steel as our power bars. The distance between the sleeves is also the standard 51.5”, making the bar rackable on any Rogue power rack, squat stand, rig, or bench.

In addition to the pair of straight handles included with the MG-4C, customers can order extra pairs of straight, 16-degree, or 20-degree handles, which can be added to the frame at 1 inch intervals. For functional use, this means that sets of handles can be spaced anywhere from a minimum of 4” to a maximum of 26” apart, allowing athletes to customize their bar for multiple movements–from close grip presses and triceps work to biomechanically optimized grips at shoulder-width and beyond. All handles, regardless of angle, have the same diameter (28.5mm) and knurl pattern as our Ohio Bars.

The sleeves, handles, and hardware of the MG-4C are all finished in your choice of either stainless steel or our proprietary matte black finish. Both of these extremely durable, corrosion-resistant options will maintain the look and performance of the sleeves across daily use. And because the proprietary matte black finish doesn’t add any thickness when applied, customers can expect that both the stainless and black handle options will feel exactly as they would coming straight out of the lathe. Note: The handle and bolt finish will match your selected sleeve finish. 

The 41” frame portion of the bar is built from 1.5” x 1.5” 11-gauge steel tubing with 1/4” plates, a machined socket, and a matte black powder coat finish. The cambered shape with 3.5” of drop allows for a greater range of motion when using the outer handles on certain movements (such as bench or rows), and also helps to improve stability, as the bar’s center of mass–relative to hand placement–is lower. 

The sleeves are assembled to the shafts by our barbell assembly team, but to save on shipping costs, we developed a unique interlocking taper design that allows for easy assembly with a single nut using the included wrench. The joint created by this interlocking taper is every bit as strong as a weld, and will hold up to whatever an athlete throws at it. Even after the nut is removed, it takes a lot of force with a mallet to free the shaft from the socket (something to keep in mind if you decide to change to a different sleeve length at a later date).

TWO SLEEVE LENGTH OPTIONS (BOTH ARE RACKABLE):

  • 15.5” of Loadable Sleeve Space - 55 LB unloaded bar weight (frame + sleeves + 2 handles). Available with stainless steel or proprietary matte black finish.
  • 9” of Loadable Sleeve Space - 45 LB unloaded bar weight (frame + sleeves + 2 handles). Available with stainless steel or proprietary matte black finish.

*The shaft is stainless steel in all versions, regardless of sleeve finish or length.


IMPORTANT: The MG-4C Bar ships with the sleeve assemblies disconnected from the frame, but all required hardware and tools for assembly are provided, including a set of 5/16” allen keys + 1/2” x 2-½” button heads bolts for the handles and a 1.5” Monster Wrench for securing the sleeve to the frame.

Key Features of the MG-4 Cambered Multi-Grip Bar

Adjustable Knurled Handles
1

Adjustable Knurled Handles

The MG-4C comes standard with (2) straight knurled grip handles (28.5mm outside diameter) in your choice of a stainless steel or proprietary matte black finish. With their threaded design, these removable handles can be positioned anywhere along the bar’s 41” long frame, using the included allen keys for attachment. Functional spacing options range from a minimum or 6” to a max of 26”. Additional handle pairs can be selected in the purchase area (at extra cost), with standard Straight Handle and two Angled Handle options available. Keep in mind, the ideal biomechanical angle for an efficient, safe lift expands as the handles move further apart. Rogue recommends the following handle spacing for Angled Handles when pressing:

20-degree: 26" or 22" spacing
16 degree: 18" or 14" spacing
Straight: 10" or 6" spacing

Additional configurations may work for other movements, as closely spaced angled handles may work well for skull crushers for many athletes.

Barbell Style Sleeves in 2 Length Options
2

Barbell Style Sleeves in 2 Length Options

Available in standard (15.5” loadable length) and short (9”) variants, the rackable sleeves on the MG-4C are built using the same construction methods and components as our Rogue Power Bar, producing a smooth rotation. The two quality sleeve finish options (stainless steel and proprietary matte black) also help eliminate paint chipping and maximize the bar’s long-term corrosion resistance. Please Note: The sleeve assemblies ship disconnected from the frame and can be attached using the included 1.5” Monster Wrench. They can also be removed and replaced, but removal will require additional tools (such as a rubber mallet) and a means of securing the frame in place.

Cambered Frame
3

Cambered Frame

The cambered 41” frame has a depth of 3.5” and is built from 1.5” x 1.5” 11-gauge steel tubing with 1/4” laser-cut plates and a machined socket. Mounting holes for the handles are 1” on center all along the sides, and the frame is finished in the same soft touch matte black powdercoat as our recently released RM43 line of racks. The cambered shape allows for a greater range of motion when using the outer handles on certain movements (such as bench or rows), and also helps to improve stability and reduce wobbling, as the bar’s center of mass–relative to hand placement–is lower.

Interlocking Taper Design and Machined Nut
4

Interlocking Taper Design and Machined Nut

The shaft of the sleeve connects to the frame using an interlocking taper; a staple of the machine tool industry for more than a century. The conical shape of the shaft is inserted into a conical cylinder that, when tightened with the machined hex nut, creates an extremely rigid joint.

Awesome for the price
I previously owned the kadillac bar, and while I think the kadillac bar is the better bar, the mg4c is an amazing value at this price. While i have to exercise care when moving the mg4c in my garage gym (two car garage with a parked car), it’s the same amount of car i use when moving any of my other bars.

Unstable, but definitely still usable.
Get the narrower version, you'll thank yourself. Unstable, but I still use it a few times per split.

Sorry guys but I really like it.
I don’t understand the hate on this bar. This bar is fantastic!! And if it’s still a hot deal, you better jump on it. I’m using it for incline press and bo rows. If you’re on the fence, just do it!! 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽

Great bar
I was wary of the wobble with this bar after reading other reviews. Yes, it was a bit unstable the first time or two I used it. Funny how adaptation works, the more I used it the more stable it got. I don't think the bar adapted to me. That said, I bought the bar to use as an accessory lift to regular bench pressing, I don't load it heavy, use it for lighter high rep sets.. In that capacity I love it. Also, the bar arrives in bomb proof packaging and it's easy to put together. Changing handle position with the straight handles is about a 90-120 second operation with the allen wrenches included with the bar, that is it isn't an issue.

Best multi grip bar available
This is the best cambered bar you can buy. Although it can be a little pricey should you purchase multiple extra handles, the versatility is unmatched. I owned the kabuki bar which is a great bar but the thick grips killed my wrists. Having the same grips that are on my straight bar works best for me. Some people complain about the width of the bar but I find it to be a nonissue. Another great made in the USA offering by Rogue.

extremely unbalanced
I bought this a few months ago and tried to give it a chance but it is just poorly designed. Its extremely unbalanced to the point of danger in certain workouts.

Great Bar
I was about exchange this bar for the narrow version prior to opening the packaging and rogue sent me the returning instructions with no problem. I then decided to open the packing and see for myself why the narrow one "is so much better" Like I read on reviews and saw on YouTube videos. I came to realize after a few different workouts that I really like this bar and decided to keep it. No problem with balancing, width, or length of the bar what so ever and very well made. The only reason it got 4 stars and not 5 is because I was under the impression that since I ordered a few more grips in 32mm stainless, that rogue would include a 32mm grip instead of the 28mm that the bar originally comes with. So I now have 2 28mm grips as paper weight.

Great Tool
I bought this in July and got it near the end of it. I had to have my bar replaced as one of the sleeves would not go in all the way but Rogue made things right. Overall this bar is pretty great. I got the short sleeves which I highly recommend. I also got one of each handle so I wont need to move them around. Some people say it wobbles but I have not had any issues with stability on it and I have gone close to 300# with no issue. It may be an issue if you have a smaller hand or are off center.
