Titan Hex Trap Bar
The Titan Hex Trap Bar is a popular rackable dual-handled trap bar that won't break the bank. It's built very similarly to the Rogue TB-2, but with a few differences around handle diameter, handle height, handle spacing, etc… With free shipping, it's one of the better value trap bars on the market.

Features & Highlights
- Dual Handle Height – The Titan Hex Trap Bar includes dual handles to allow for full and partial range-of-motion lifts. The high handle sits 7.5″ off the floor compared to 8.5″ on the Rogue TB-2.
- Knurled Handles – The handles on the bar are knurled in a non-aggressive pattern and they measure 32mm in diameter. This diameter is very consistent with other trap bars, and it's a bit thinner than the 34mm diameter on the Rogue bar.
- Rackable – This bar is rackable, giving you additional versatility (rack pulls, overhead press, pull-ups, etc…).
- Handle Width – The distance between handles measures 22″ which, for some users, is its biggest downside. If you're a physically big lifter, 22″ may be too tight for you. If you have a smaller frame, you will probably find this to be a great feature. Compare this to the 25″ on the Rogue TB-2.
- Sleeve Length – On the Titan Hex Trap Bar, you get 16″ of loadable sleeve length, which is very similar to a traditional barbell, and which is on the high-end of the trap bar spectrum.
- Powder Coat Finish – Powder Coat is a very common finish on specialty bars. It does a good job at limiting oxidation, but it does tend to show scuffs easily, especially on the sleeves and rack contact points.
- Non-Olympic Sized Sleeve – The sleeves on The Titan Hex Trap Bar aren't quite Olympic sized. They're close at 48mm (vs. 50mm Olympic size), but standard collars may not work. My personal recommendation is Proloc since they can be used on any bar. They work very well and they're well-priced.
From the Manufacturer
This heavy-duty Hex Trap Bar from Titan Fitness is designed to be used inside of your rack. The handle spread measures 22-inches across, so you can quickly rack the bar on your power rack J-Hooks for easy plate loading. Try racking on your power rack safety system and have a raised starting position for deadlifts and shrugs. The 1.5-inch square frame tubing, double gusseted corners, and solid 48mm weight sleeves with 16-inches of loadable space per side give this Trap Bar a stout construction designed to withstand heavy lifting for years to come. The Hex Trap Bar features dual handles that are raised 7.5-inches from the floor for a raised starting position when lifting.
What They're Saying at Titan Fitness
The Titan Hex Trap Bar receives very good feedback from users. With an average rating of 4.8/5, here are some of the things people have said at titan.fitness.
- “Chose this bar over the Rogue hex bar due to the cost of shipping. The bar arrived yesterday in great shape. I immediately got to lifting with it and added a new PR to my DL. Lots of people comment on the knurling so my 2 cents is that it is just right; keeps your hands from slipping but does not hurt when your lifting. I did not need chalk until I started sweating heavily. I bought this bar to train for the Army ACFT and because using this type of bar allows me to get into a really good DL position. I’m extremely happy with my choice and this bar. I highly recommend it.”
- “I was apprehensive about buying this bar due to the 22” spread. I was fearful that it was going to be too narrow and I would be scraping my hands up my legs the whole lift. Well, that is not the case and the bar is awesome. I can take my normal deadlift stance and lift with no impedance. I will admit that it does feel a bit different than the more traditional 24-25” spread but different in a good way. I’m about 6”, 205 lbs for reference. The fact that you can rack the bar makes storage easy and has opened up some other uses for it too – like using it as a neutral grip pull-up bar. I’m super happy with the product and the shipping was fast as well.”
- “This bar has all the qualities as other name brands. The feature I love the most is the option of using a raised or neutral bar. This allows me to train for the Army’s ACFT but also convenient for my wife use for her workouts.”
- “I have used a number of different trap/hex bars and this Titan bar ranks right up at the top. I know one of the big complaints is the space between the handles (too narrow). I am 6 foot 1 inch and at 235 pounds – the bar felt terrific! I would highly recommend this bar. The only suggestion I can provide that would make the bar even better is to make the knurling on the high/low handles much more aggressive. Other than that I am very, very satisfied.”
- “I love this Heavy Duty Hex trap bar. It works perfect on the rack. Able to load plates easily and then do deadlifts or shrugs. It so solid my sons uses it for dead lifting and thinks its the best bar he has ever used. The construction is excellent and I am very happy I purchased this piece of equipment.”
- “Love this trap bar. Have seen and used some much more expensive versions of big trap bars and this one holds up against those for a great price. Highly recommend if you are thinking of buying a big trap bar.”
- “This bar was shipped fast and got to my door in 3 days. Packaging was secure and it had a ton of foam in the box. Power coat had no blemishes and welds looked great. I really LOVE the way the bar looks. Unfortunately I think this bar is not for me. I am 6'6” and the 22-inch spacing is “doable” but it does cause my hands to rub against my leg hairs when doing deadlifts. I do not understand why they went with a smaller than traditional spacing for the handles (even 24 inches would've been perfectly fine). Basically if you are over 6'2″ I think you will want a wider grip handle than this bar can provide. This isn't because the hand position is bad but it is because the handles like to rub against your leg and it messes with your head when lifting.”
- “Quality is great. Heavy duty construction. My only problem is the 22” space between handles. The “traditional” trap bar has a 24.5″spacing and the extra 2.5″ makes a huge difference in the feel of the movement, especially when doing deadlifts. Range of motion feels limited because of the loss of the 2.5″.”
