SB-1 - Rogue Safety Squat Bar is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but..... I'm an older lifter, and I bought this bar because of mobility issues in my right shoulder. While the bar certainly helps with that, the thinness of the padding across my back makes it VERY uncomfortable for heavier sets (for me, that's above 300). On the other hand, I do feel leg day a lot more in the quads now than with a straight bar, it's easy to get balanced across your back, and overall stability feels better. Fix the pads and I'll recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Legit & then some!! Couldn't be more happy with this bar.. As someone needing to put major focus on the quads for classic physique, this has really seemed to help me out but not only that. I have a cyst in my wrist so that caused regular barbell squats to be quite painful with how the wrist bends back, this bar takes that pain away in that area as well as some I had in the delts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quickly becoming my Squat Bar of Choice After a few weeks of use, this is a fantastic squat bar. High bar squats have been problematic due to old neck and head injuries but this bar removes all of those problems. My technique has improved greatly as a result. The exercise arsenal is growing as I learn to use it for good mornings, single leg squats etc, my quads are lett8ng me know that they are getting a much better workout now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The One Reason You Should NOT buy! Aside from the bars ONE lagging area, this bar is made almost better than any other standard safety squat bar on the market. The construction is exactly what we have all come to know, love and expect from rogue, great welding, great powder coat, looks great and functions really well. The angle of the handles is as good as you will see anywhere and the camber in the bar itself is spot on, for a standard SSB. WIth all that said, there is one single reason why I would look elsewhere, at least for now. The Padding! Its shockingly poor quality and very thin. I have had my bar for only a little while, and the padding has completely torn through in all areas, and even before that, the delts and traps could REALLY feel the weight of whatever is on the bar. Rogue are almost always the most researched and tested brands, which is why almost everything they make is second to none on quality, functionality and look. Not in this case, however. How they decided to make such poor padding is beyond me, and others. With other SSBs such as the Elite FTS SS YOKE bar and the new Kabuki Strength Transformer bar, you would think a company like Rogue would researched the padding a little more. Especially given the athletes they sponsor, such as Brian Shaw, who uses the SS YOKE in his training. To go with that, Rogue make the very BEST bench pad you can buy, the Thompson Fat Pad, which makes me wonder why they didnt use the same sorta upholstery and padding in the safety squat bar as is in that. Perhaps they have a new model coming?? Anyway, until they can fix this issue, I would seriously consider either the elite fts or kabuki strength one, however, if this issue can be resolved by Rogue, this would then be the SSB I would go for. Very disappointed in Rogue on this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cured Shoulder Pain Amazing bar all around EXCEPT for one thing. The padding could be of higher quality. Especially for how badass the rest of the bar is. If I could I would’ve given the bar a 4.9 out of 5. But stuck giving it a 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatility at its best I bought this bar because I was dealing with shoulder tendinitis and backsquats were no longer an option. This bar allowed to continue with my training. Another great thing was I used it to work on box squats, which had the added benefits of working on my posterior chain which I have struggled with for a while.
