Black Eleiko Sport Training Bar

This is your chance to own an Eleiko!

Rogue teamed up with Eleiko to offer their first bar with an unmatched flat black coating. The only mechanical difference between the Black Eleiko Sport Training Bar and the Eleiko Training and Competition Bars, is the fact that there are 4 sets of needle bearings per sleeve instead of 5. It still undergoes the same quality control and strength testing that has made Eleiko the most famous bars in the world. That makes this bar an incredible bargain that should not be missed.

Black Metal Plates

Not all metal plates are created equal.

For the most part, metal plates are not there to look pretty, they are there to add more weight to the bar when you run out of bumpers or run out of room for bumpers. They are also the only way to get to precise weights so you can go up in increments smaller than 20 pounds at a time. Most metal plates will get the job done. However, many of the plates available at local sporting goods stores are particularly low quality. Generally this does not cause problems, since they are designed to be used for slow lifts, and for the most part are used solely for bench press by their intended audience. When CrossFitters, buy these cast iron plates, they will work well for a while. After all, they are using them with bumper plates that are taking the impact of the drops. However, particularly with the 2.5 and 5 pound plates, those repeated sudden stops can be enough to cause the plates to break.

The Ader Black Plates, being made from higher quality cast iron, and are much less likely to break due to impact when dropped with bumpers.

Since they are available in weights as low as 1.25 pounds, they are also an inexpensive way to go up 2.5 pounds at a time for lifts like shoulder press, where often 5 pounds can be the difference between an easy lift and an impossible one.

Rogue Deadlift Bar Jack

Changing out deadlift weight can get very difficult when the weight gets heavy and can even end up being dangerous. Because you do not take the same care to set your back as you are trying to lift half the bar with one hand and slide a bumper on with the other, it can be an accident waiting to happen.

The Rogue Deadlift Bar Jack solves this problem. You simply slide the jack under the bar, pull back, and the weight is lifted, allowing you to easily and safely add or remove weight from the bar.

New Rogue KG Bumpers

You may be one of the many who have found that if you can’t talk in kilograms, you can’t really be part of the Olympic Weightlifting world. In the past, this often meant that in order to avoid constantly doing conversions, you needed to buy extremely expensive kilogram plates.

That is no longer the case with the new KG Rogue Bumpers. They are the same high quality solid rubber bumpers with stainless steel inserts that you have come to expect from Rogue. However, the low price will surprise you. Shipping is even included.

Rogue Comp Matting

Keeping your athletes safe while still allowing them to push their limits, has always been an issue. The problem is that most mats that are available are made for gymnastics, and will not stand up to the abuse of a busy CrossFit Affiliate.

Made in the U.S.A. by Dollamur, Rogue Comp Matting is the answer to outfitting your training or competition area.

The only mats chosen by the U.S.A. Olympics. This matting is used in premier martial arts, cheerleading, and gymnastics facilities. Whether you need a place for your clients to practice handstands, handwalking and tumbling, want a padded area for stretching and situps, want to add an extra measure of safety below your Infinity Rig or Wall Mount Unit, or even mat an area for martial arts, you will not find a better product.

The matting can be used for both temporary and permanent installations. It is so easy to lay and reroll the mats, that it can be done by a single person. The matting always lays flat and rolls tight for easy storage.

The 10 foot by 6 foot sections of matting are designed to work with Rogue Infinity Rigs and Wallmount Systems. They can be applied down the center of a pullup rig and also around the perimeter, forming a safe environment for your athletes to train. Custom sizes are also available.

Rogue War Bar

One of the most indispensable tools out there for teaching Olympic Weightlifting has always been a piece of PVC pipe. However, the pipe is not the exact diameter of the bar that you or your clients will eventually use, and it lacks knurling marks to use a reference for where to place your hands.

The Rogue War Bar solves these problems. It is a true 28 mm diameter plastic bar with the correct knurling marks for olympic weightlifting, making the transition to a barbell as smooth as possible. Your clients will not have to relearn the hook grip on the bar, and you can teach the correct grip width from the beginning, before any bad habits form.

While it is not a load bearing bar, it is much more durable than a piece of PVC and will last quite a bit longer.

Rogue Grandfather Clock Grip System

The Grandfather Clock Grip System is one of the toughest tests of grip strength that we have come up with. Each grip is a cylinder that resembles the weights in a grandfather clock. It is an an even more difficult version of the towel pull-up since the grips will not give or allow you to dig your fingers in for additional leverage. Because of this, the Grandfather Clock grips are unmatched in their ability to improve grip strength for rope climbs. Their shape will also translate into improved grip strength for various odd object lifting.

Like our other grip systems, the straps and caribiners allow these to be attached to almost any implement you can think of to add difficulty to lifting movements or farmer’s walks. This serves a two purposes: 1. It allows you to build your grip strength across several movements. 2. If you do not have the grip strength to do pull-ups right away, it allows you to build that strength, by lifting progressively heavier objects.

Gibbon Slacklines

Slacklining, an activity that came out of the rock climbing community, was embraced by CrossFit due to the fact that like gymnastics rings, the slackline is an inherently stable system that only becomes unstable when the human element is introduced. Learning to walk on a slackline involves learning to quiet the involuntary muscle movements that cause the line to vibrate, which is similar to learning to stop shaking when supporting yourselft on the rings. However, slacklining takes all this to a much higher level.

Rogue offers two different Gibbon Slacklines for variations on the sport.

1. The Classic is perfect for the beginner or diverse slackliner. Thicker webbing and two lengths make this the best line for any location or skill level.  It can even be used as a portable rail for skis, snowboards and skateboards!

2. The Jibline is for the more adventurous type. Thinner webbing and much more dynamic, the Jibline is ideal for tricks and jumps. This line takes balance to a new level!  Thin, flexible webbing provides a trampoline like effect and rubber based print provides added grip.  The low mounting height is for safe handling.
