There is no one-size-fits-all. Let's build you a system that will fit your needs perfectly.
Build Your Own System
Choose your Harambe Bar
We currently sell the K Bar (36", approx 11 lbs, 1 1/8" diameter) and the T Bar (28", approx 3 lbs, 1 1/16" diameter). All our bars are made out of stainless steel and are compatible with all our slings. Stainless steel is a fantastic material which is reserved only for higher end gym equipment. It needs minimal maintenance to last forever and offers the best knurl experience vs other metals (aluminum or coated steels).
If you want your sessions to feel like the weight room, go for the K Bar. If you only want to feel band forces or plan to travel light, the T Bar is the way to go.
Want us to make the rest of the choices for you? We have bundle deals that are complete systems built around either the K or T Bar. Check them out here.
Add Harambe Handles (optional)
Fantastic for trap deadlifts, calf raises, shrugs, landmine rows, and isolation movements. The symmetrical design reduces torque on your wrists (unlike hooked handles). The ends, knurling, and material choices match those of the T Bar. Our handles have the same super smooth spin as our bars and are volcano knurled. Unless you only plan on doing isolation movements, get two T Handles.
Add slings (rods + ropes)
Bands attach to Harambe System bars using slings. A sling consists of one pair of rods and one set of ropes. You only need one pair of slings. You don't have to buy a pair for each bar or handle pair you have. The T Rods are great for smaller bands and are slightly lighter than the K Rods.
Rope V2 is the new rope standard, currently offered only in two sizes. Compatible with all Harambe System rods, spacers, bars, and handles.
Sapphire ropes (size only available as Rope, not Rope V2) are required for back squats.
Add a platform and block
Protect your ankles and get more out of your workouts with the best platform for bands. Comes in Black or Urban Camo. The Cork Block gives a convenient resting place for your bar and protects your feet in case you ever let go!
Unlike solid-cast rubber resistance bands, Serious Steel resistance bands are made from premium Sri Lankan latex though a layering process. The bands have 15 continuous layers of latex which help with the durability, longevity, and help prevent the band from snapping.
Choose the 41" bands if you are over 5'9". If you find that you want more tension for bench press or deadlifts, add the 32" bands regardless of your height. The 38" band bundle will work for most heights, but orders including them won't ship until late-January.
