StrongArm Buffalo Bar

  • Sale
  • Regular price $349.00CAD

Note, due to some quality issues, we are putting sales of the Buffalo bar on hold. We are working to setup with a new manufacturer in Europe that should be able to supply us a higher quality bar.  Any orders placed now will not ship until the new bars come in, probably May or June.    


Our all-new StrongArm Buffalo bar was built from the ground up and made to our own specs. Here are the improvements:

  • A better quality of steel using a superior steel, thicker than normal, 32mm Chromium alloy steel.
  • Nicer finish: Bare Steel or Black Zinc!  We are a big fan of bare steel bars, they truly give the best grip and feel, although there is some more maintenance involved. The sleeves are a chrome finish for an aesthetic touch. But bare steel can rust if you are in a humid climate, best to go for the black zinc version if so. 
  • Bigger and badder a full 92 inches, with an extra thick block and sleeves, weight is 50 lbs.
  • Aggressive knurl as any self-respecting powerlifting bar does, the new buffalo bar features are sharp knurling found on our Barenaked power bars.
  • 3" drop at the rings.  With the bar on the floor, the top of the bar at the center is 7.25 inches from the floor. At the rings the top of the bar is 4.25 inches up, a difference of 3". 

So you’ve been in the gym squatting and benching like there is no tomorrow. Hitting all the PR’s. But all that huge weight you’ve been slingin around is beating up your shoulders.

Enter the Buffalo Bar. This is not just some super bent bar. The Buffalo Bar is strategically designed to alleviate stress from your shoulders while squatting, benching. A huge benefit of a cambered bar is that it is still very similar to a regular movement with a stiff bar, you even grip the bar like a proper squat but with significantly less pressure on your shoulder joints. Unlike a Safety Squat Bar, the Buffalo Bar can be used for upper body movements too!

It’s the perfect bar for off-season training, and one of the best options to push up your volume in-season without doing any damage to your body or doing a completely different movement. Other than the Squat and Good Morning, the Buffalo Bar is great for the bench. With the Buffalo Bars signature bow in the bar, you will be able to add several inches to your range of motion. This will help to strengthen your press of the chest as well as assisting with muscular development.

The StrongArm Buffalo bar is every bit the same quality level as a Kabuki Duffalo bar, but a Duffalo will cost you nearly three times the price.

The Buffalo Bar has many benefits to any athlete, and if you already suffer from shoulder pain or just want to help prevent it, the Buffalo Bar is a must!

Serious construction; "generational" for my home gym!


I bought this bar looking at reviews online, people basically saying it’s a close equivalent of the Duffalo bar.. I was excited for it to arrive .. I live in the UK so it did take a week to arrive.. it was absolutely caked in rust.. the bar was basically brown.. I bought this bar because of shoulder issues just scrapping the shit off the bar annoyed my shoulders further.. only to discover the knurling is basically non existent .. it’s so passive.. I don’t think you could even call it knurling.. it’s the first time and the last I’ll be buying from StrongArm.

Since posting my initial review, StrongArm replied in under 24 hours saying this was a bad batch, fully refunded my money.. truely wasn’t expecting this excellent customer service and understand that this wasn’t there fault but the manufacturers. I will be buying the bar again when they sort out the new supplier as I believe they deserve that chance and as a token of good faith.

The last batch of Buffalo bars we received were not good, rusty and smooth as you say. We've suspended sales on them, I've got 20 bars now that the manufacturer won't refund me, and I won't sell. I'm happy to refund your money Jabar, no problem I'll do that now.

Great help with lowbar squat

This bar has helped me get into a lowbar position for squats. Lowbar was not possible with a straight bar due to my lack of flexibility.

Where has this been all of my life?!

The bar looks and feels great!

Awesome bar

I recently purchased a bar. absolutely love it it’s great squats and benchpress. The bar did come with a slight blemish across the bottom of it from the manufacture. I called in And the owner himself give me a discount on the bar. Amazing bar and amazing service. Best of all it’s got the same specs as the kabuki bar at less than half the cost.
