Ever look at a barbell and think "I love this, but it's just too long?" An uncommon problem, sure- but one that affects many.
With the Fringe Sport Shorty Barbell, we've created the only barbell on the market that conforms (and performs) to standard 20kg barbell specs- but is over a foot shorter than a normal barbell.
You get a full 28mm diameter shaft that is perfect for Oly movements, as well as being great for general WODing and Power lifts- and the shaft is full 216,200 psi tensile strength- tested to over 2200 pounds of stress. And here's the kicker- the shaft of the barbell is full width, so the Shorty Barbell fits on all standard racks and supports a full snatch grip- even from you tall drinks of water.
Plus, this is a true performance barbell- constructed in the same facility and to similar specifications as our flagship Fringe Sport Weightlifting and Hybrid bars.
You might wonder if there are any compromises with the Fringe Sport Shorty Barbell. Well, there's no free lunch. But any compromises on this awesome barbell will be easy to live with.
We eliminated the length on the sleeves- going down to 8 7/16" of loadable space.
Don't worry- the Shorty Barbell will still support bar loads of 225+ pounds of training barbells- and well over 400 pounds if you use iron.
The only other "compromise" is that we took the weight of this barbell from 20kg (44 pounds) to 15kg (33 pounds). So your barbell math with change by about 10 pounds.
The Shorty Barbell is a great option for running competitions, WODing in smaller boxes, or even working out in that corner of your garage that you thought was "too small."
It's also a great solution for boot campers or other people that want to travel with a barbell- the shorter length makes the Shorty Barbell easy to fit in a car, and or even to fly with!

I have lifted weights for 49 years and thought "old school”. It’s just about lifting the weight, nothing complicated. Metal plates, dumbbells, cheep bars, sturdy racks, countless hours and sweat. Boy was I wrong- a great bar does make a difference.I moved to a condo and had to replace my trusty Smith with gun rack with a small rack. Space limitations forced me to try the Fringe shorty barbell. Best bar I have ever used.Who knew, bars do make a difference! I’ve been “new schooled”. These bars may be expensive but they are well worth the money. Go ahead, get off the fence and buy the bar.
I purchased this bar for a very tight space that I converted into a home gym area and it has worked out great. The bar fits into my squat stand perfectly, and while the sleeves are short by design, they are more than adequate for most applications. If you're quite strong, you may have to use iron plates as opposed to bumpers to load sufficient weight. If you're a super strong powerlifter (or Ronnie Coleman), then you could run out of room on the sleeves, but that's about the only time I could see that happening. Quality of the bar is top notch - super strong & great feel. Five stars for me easily.
I purchased the shorty bar for my garage gym. So far I am loving it after two weeks of use. I needed a bar that would save space but did not compromise any grip or racking changes from a standard Olympic barbell. This bar feels great. It is sturdy and performs just as it should. I was happy to find this barbell as it suits my needs exactly.
