The new and improved replacement pads for our Riot Olympic Safety Squat Bar come as a one-piece, rather than single pieces. Made from synthetic black leather which is super durable. It’s closed with one strong Velcro in the back of the bar. The inner cushioning is 4cm thick and has a medium resistance so that the padding sits comfortably even with heavy loads on the back. This pad is specifically fitted to our Riot Safety Olympic Squat Bar.

As the pad is one piece with a very strong Velcro fastening, this minimises any potential movement of the bar/pad on the back and due to the overall firmer materials used over the standard pads this gives an overall better and more secure feeling across the back.

Safety Squat Bars are also great to perform box squats. For a super stable and adjustable solution, see our Adjustable Plyo/Squat Box.

Riot Safety Squat Bar - Heavy Pad

Great product. Totally different feel to the original thinner pads. Sits better across my upper back. With the right adjustment it feels like I'm more upright when squatting. It will probably take a while to break in properly but it is a vast improvement on the thinner pads.

If you have this bar, get the pad

Can be a bit fiddly to get on the bar but this pad elevates the bar to a different level. More secure, more comfortable and has the added benefit of a built in market for JM press. Well worth a purchase

Great product and service

An improvement on the old version. Came quickly and the package even included a free pair of spring style collars which was a very nice touch by The Strength Shop

Fantastic upgrade

Bought one of these as soon as they came back in stock. Fantastic upgrade and great value over previous standard, able to rack the bar better and easier without having to mess with the pads all the time. Only used for about a dozen or so sessions so far but the quality seem great so far. Definitely recommended for anyone with original pads.

Takes an already good bar and makes it great

I bought the SSB when it still came with the 3 separate pads and it took some getting used to for it to be comfortable. This pad makes a good SSB great, incredibly comfortable even for a beginner. The single pad also allows you to take the handles off and use the SSB for JM presses. Top marks.
