Rogue TB-1 Trap Bar 2.0


Availability: Ships in 14-30 Days

Rogue TB-1 Trap Bar 2.0

Version 2.0 of the Rogue TB-1 Trap Bar features the same general design and dimensions of the original, but with an updated, precision sleeve construction that reduces the starting weight of the bar by more than 25 percent. This makes the TB-1 easier to maneuver without limiting its effectiveness. Simply put, if you want to lift massive weight, this tool still belongs in your arsenal.

The Trap Bar’s hexagonal design and knurled, neutral grip handles make it optimized for performing deadlifts that put less stress on the lumbar spine—since the load is centered and not off axis like a traditional deadlift. This same benefit makes the TB-1 2.0 a useful specialty bar for beginners, as well as athletes dealing with nagging back issues or rehabbing from other injuries.

We manufacture the TB-1 in Columbus, OH, and it's fully compatible with standard Oly plates.

Approved for the new Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT)

This product has been officially approved for use with the United States Army’s Combat Fitness Test, a 6-event readiness assessment that’s replacing the previous 3-event Army Physical Fitness Test in 2020. The grueling new ACFT is neutral across all genders and age groups, and includes a strength deadlift, standing power throw, hand-release push-ups, sprint/drag/carry, leg tuck, and a 2-mile run.

IMPORTANT: Some standard barbell collars may not work on this specialty bar. We recommend using either the Rogue Metal Axle Collars or the OSO Axle Collars.


  • Neutral Grip Handles, Spaced 25” on center with easy-grip knurling, 1.34" diameter
  • Newly Redesigned Olympic Sleeves: Schedule 80 with Welded Caps, 1.91” diameter
  • 16" Loadable sleeve space
  • Finish: Signature black powder coat
  • Weight: 60LB (+/- 2LB) (unloaded)

*PLEASE NOTE: Because the TB-1 Trap Bar 2.0 is finished in our Rogue signature black powder coat, any metal-to-metal contact with the coated sleeves (such as adding and/or removing plates) may cause wear on the finish over time.

Rogue TB-1 Trap Bar 2.0 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bar Great Bar! It's an asset in my home gym and well worth the cost and the space it consumes. It allows me to confidently deadlift without concerns for my lower back. I would have given it 5 stars but I have only had it a few weeks and the finish is coming off the selves from friction with the plates. (Yes, that is mentioned on the website.) I highly recommend getting "The Dead Wedge" to go with it. The wedge makes swapping bumper plates on and off considerably quicker and easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this thing The trap bar deadlift is the king of all exercises and this bar provides excellent tools to get the job done. It is very sturdy, has great handle grip, and puts you in the perfect stance to perform the lift. I’m really feeling the gains in the legs using this thing every other day. No need to get the other bar that has raised handles - this bad boy is all you need to get a great lower body workout in. My lower back thanks me every day as now I don’t even deadlift with the straight bar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ACFT Prep Like others I purchased this bar to help prepare for the Army's new ACFT. I love that the bar has been officially approved by the Army so I know exactly what to expect. Like everything from Rogue it is high quality and built like a tank. After waiting weeks for this to be back in stock I almost broke down and ordered a cheaper bar off Amazon, but I was finally notified it was available and it was well worth the wait! I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 because when it arrived it already had chips out of the powder coat on the sleeves. It's not a big deal and doesn't affect the bar's integrity but for the price of the bar and $150 shipping I expected it to be pristine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back saver!! So happy I got this bar. Being able to lift straight up (more or less) and operating less “off axis” has really helped my form and protects my lower back. Love the knurling, and the black finish is a bonus. It’s even got my wife deadlifting now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ACFT Preparation I bought this so that I could work on this particular style dead lift in preparation for the ACFT. I used it in the gym several times before I purchased one of my own. The bottom line is, this thing (just like everything else I have purchased from Rogue) is the reason why Rogue Fitness will always be the king of fitness equipment. I almost bought a hex bar from other sites and I am so glad I didn't. I managed to purchase it right before COVID-19 impacted the market. I use it for deadlights and farmers carries. Definitely worth every penny and a great investment for my garage gym.
