New Curl Barbells from Jordan Fitness

Jordan Fitness’ new Curl Barbells complement its range of straight bar barbells with solid rubber ends. Stylish and durable, they have an odourless black rubber finish that virtually eliminates the ‘clanking’ of barbells.
The Curl Barbells feature chrome easy-grip handles, raised number weight identification and a J-lock system that helps prevent loosening of the barbell head. The product has an internal handle length of 110cm, with the barbells available in 10kg to 60kg weights.

New SMARTBAR from Les Mills

This barbell weights system features a new ‘gator’ fastening mechanism for speedy weight transitions: the retractable teeth lock up to three plates in place at each end in a single manoeuvre, allowing users to quickly drop weights in the middle of a set. The ergonomic, handle-like design of the weight plates means they can also be used in the same way as dumbbells and kettlebells, adjusting in 1kg increments.
