Customer Review


"I have been looking for a rackable curl bar, that does wonders and does not break the bank.

That is what the Kyoto Rackable EZ Curl Bar is...so, thank you, Kensuifitness!"

- Yoothana M.


"Fantastic design, i have a curling bar i rarely used because i either had to support it on my dumbbell rack, pick it up off the ground or balance it on my bench. Needless to say i rarely used it. This is a game changer and can curl again, also love the deep bends and all the options to hold the bar."

- Adam L.


"This bar is incredible in terms of quality and knurling.

Really love this company.

Keep up the great work!"

- VS


"The deep bends in this bar facilitate tucking the elbows during bench pressing, limiting strain in my bad shoulders.

This is exactly the type of bar I was looking for. I use it only for my bench pressing right now."

- J.L.

Bigger Bends. Bigger Gains.

Bending Steel was costly and time consuming.

However the extra performance is worth it.

Fully Knurled

Knurling the entire bend is costly and time consuming.

But we opted to take the time as it makes the bar a lot better to grip.

Kyoto Rackable Curl Bar

Great bar and addition to my home weight room. The design of the bar makes it perfect for what I was looking for, especially for benching. Being able to have my grip turned in relieves pain and pressure in my arthritic shoulder. Highly recommend this bar.

William N. (US)
Kyoto curl bar

This Kyoto curl bar is FAR better than the standard EZ curl bar. This Kyoto Olympic bar fits easily on an Olympic bench enabling you to do everything the standard Olympic straight bar can do in addition to great biceps and triceps exercises with no wrist discomfort….. I truly find myself looking forward to each workout when this bar is included in my workout. Well worth the money!!! 👍🏼

Jared D.

I made an instagram post about the bars.


Tomas H. (US)

Great concepts. knurling way to rough. Straight bar should have 0 knurling in center or make option to have or not

Also work on your customer service that is your biggest weakness in your company.

Terence H. (GB)
Tokyo open trap bar

The bar is very well made and balanced perfectly the only criticism is the knurling is to aggressive I've got to wear gloves apart from that it's definitely better than my old trap bar as it's also rackable.
