Features & Highlights

  • Ladder Design – The Flat/Incline/Decline Bench from Fringe Sport uses a ladder adjustment on the back and a sliding pop-pin adjustment on the seat. The frame is constructed with 2×3 steel and weighs in at 70lbs. Some assembly is required.
  • # of Adjustments – The bench offers 7 back adjustments and 4 seat adjustments for a total of 28 potential adjustment options. The back pad ranges from 0 degrees to 85 and the seat can adjust down to -20 degrees for decline movements.
  • Pad/Seat Gap – The pad gap on this bench is consistent with similar benches at around 3″. While it's not egregious, it still may be uncomfortable/problematic on flat bench press depending on your height. If you train the flat bench press frequently, it might be a good idea to purchase a dedicated flat bench as a companion.
  • Pad Width – This bench offers a pad width of 11.5″, which is narrower than the more common 12″ width. Ultimately this will come down to personal preference since some users prefer a narrower pad and others prefer a wider option.
  • Weight Limit – Fringe Sport states a weight rating of 1,000lbs on this Bench, which is plenty for virtually anyone. 
  • Not IPF Height – In the flat position, this bench has a height of 18″, which is not within IPF specs (~17.7″ max). If you train for powerlifting specifically, having an IPF-height dedicated flat bench could again be a good thing. Otherwise, 18″ is still a good height for most users to generate ample leg drive.
  • Includes Wheels & Handle – This bench does offer a handle and wheels, which makes it easy to move around.
  • No Upright Storage – There is no built-in vertical storage feature on this bench.

What They're Saying at Fringesport.com

The Fringe Sport Flat/Incline/Decline Bench receives good, but limited feedback from users. With an average rating of 4/5, here are some of the things people have said at fringesport.com:

Positive

  • “I went with this option for a bench after a lot of back and forth. The bench was pretty straight forward to assemble. You will need multiple wrenches in the same size to assemble. But, it is pretty solidly built.”

Critical

  • “The only issue I had with mine was the bracing arm that adjust the angle of the rear bench was a little twisted so the foot of the brace sits a little bit out of alignment on the adjustment ladder. I'm awaiting Customer Services feedback on how to correct this slight misalignment in the components. I do wish the front foot of the bench had some form of a hard rubber pad. Just so the metal doesn't touch the ground directly.”
