A new breed
Our very own patented built-in collars that secure your weights in 3 easy steps
I own a personal training studio in the Bay Area (San Mateo) called Fit SF. I take pride in purchase quality products. Buy once, cry once is my mantra. I purchase 3 of the AllRounders when they first introduced back in July 2020 and I I’m now returning to buy more. This is my first review, and since we received our bar last year there Is not one trainer or client to this date that has not stop mentioning how much they like of the Convenience these bars offer. We’re all huge fans of convenience, and we hate looking for collars, and as an owner, I hate clutter in my gym. The bars are costly but no different than any other high-end Olympic bar. This is not even a bar to contemplate on purchasing or not. Just do it. You will not regret your purchase.
Since the first day this barbell has arrived in our home gym, we have been absolutely loving it. Upon unpacking, the first thing i've notived was, that the finish looks absolutely beautiful and high quality. We have been testing it thoroughly now and I haven't found a single issue with it. The built in collars hold up amazingly and nothing moves. They're quick to adjust and there is no more looking around for collars, tripping over them or having to readjust after every set. No matter if we did Weightlifting, Barbell Cycling, Deadlifting or Bench Pressing, the collars worked perfectly every time. The Barbell feels great! I am beyond happy about this purchase and would highly reccommend! On top of it, the contact and customer service have been quick and very friendly.
Been 1 month with a continuous usage of ” The Allrounder Gungnir 20kgs barbell” with more than 10 hours per week of usage. Very stable the grips are holding no matter if the drop was from the overhead or clean or a deadlift. Very fast transitions in workouts. Loving it ! Must say go easy on cleaning it with alcohol the barbell doesn’t like it. Highly recommended
I’m lucky (and unlucky) enough to have tried The Allrounder multiple times now, and has definitely ruined other barbells for me.
What differentiates todays cheap barbells from the expensive ones is often a series of incremental improvements that is – let’s face it – in many cases only recognisable to the most elite lifters. To me, an amateur/intermediate lifter, The Allrounder offers the quality of a top bar, but more importantly, something truly new and exciting with the Slidelock.
Allrounder stangen er helt fantastisk med det innovative låsemekanismen. Slipper å tenke på de “klypene” som løse deler. Her er det bare å smelle på vektplater og dunke på! Fantastisk produkt, koster noe men er en kvalitetstang man kan ha (og avskrive) i lengden. 🙂
The heavy-duty built-in collars provide versatility in weight choices due to how simple and effective the mechanism works. With a firm chrome-plated handle that is identical to the olympic barbell, it is also well suited for heavier loads. Definitely a product I would recommend for athletes in wide spectrum of sports.
Doesn't matter if you are doing heavy weightlifting or barbell cycling. The barbell has a smooth knurling and a great whip. I think this barbell can be the future CrossFit barbell.
As a CrossFit athlete, i tend to train various movements in a very limited times. Olympic lifting, strength training and metcons workouts needs me to focus on the movements not on worrying if the weight on the barbell will get loose from grips or takes more time to remove the grip and add extra weight.
With this barbell i don't worry about my plates gets loose in a metcon nor wasting time and focus on lift to add or reduce weight. I did test the barbell in heavy snatching, overhead training, deadlifting and stability work. Overall it is a very handy barbell, stable, strong and durable. Recommended for athletes. I will continue testing the barbell and see how it behaves with more time and more training. More details to come
Everything from the sleeve fitment to the shaft, the ribbed sleeve/slide lock application, the matte chrome and nickel coating, as well as the clean knurl are very quality. In my opinion, the whip is absolutely perfect for a multi-use all around bar. It's not as whippy as a pure weightlifting bar or as stiff as a power bar. To me, it's just right!
It’s a very useful invention, easy and effective. Exercise made easy, love it!
As one of the first gyms to recieve this barbell, I can tell you that it's definitely one you should check out and consider buying.
This is not just a premium barbell with a functioning locking-mechanism. It gives your members increased safety, ease of use and helps keep the gym tidy with less springs and collars laying around!
Received my bar today and it truly is a thing of beauty! The knurling on the bar is spot on perfect!! The finish is a satin and it’s so damn nice looking I don’t wanna bounce it off the bench arms.. but the fellas at GUNGNIR just emailed me back and gave me a direct order to give it no mercy !! I must say it’s so worth the wait and money! I CANNOT WAIT for a set of 15 inch Olympic dumbells with this collar system!!!!! Very very pleased from the USA! Chris
The Gungnir loadable handles are a great addition to any gym with limited space or budget. They are very functional, and the incorporated lock make them time-saving and easy to load and use.
The locking mechanism is quick and easy to use, and the grip is great. I was worried about the size before I tried, but I had no problems with this, even on seated shoulder press. This goes for both the 5kgs and the 1kgs. Overall a good product I look forward to using more.
These new dumbbells are so ingenious with the built-in locks - combined with a high quality. I'm very glad I have them at my gym.
