EZ-Bar angle + thick Grip = N-GAGE GRIPS
Increase muscle activation
Larger grip diameter = more activation of hand and forearm muscles leading to more mechanical tension throughout your upper body.
improve joint alignment
The grip angle creates more neutral and natural positions for your wrists, elbows, and shoulders (like an EZ bar or Swiss bar).
introduce new lift variations
Add N-GAGE GRIPS to any bar, dumbbell, or piece of gym equipment to create a new stimulus on your target muscle group.
Your N-Gage Grips were made to last. If you ever notice any wear, tear, or defects, just send them back and we'll replace them.
60-Day Money back guarantee
If you're not happy with your new N-Gage Grips, just send them back within 60 days for a full refund. We'll even cover the return shipping from anywhere in the US.
What the Experts Have to say
"Hands down the best grippers I've ever used and not only for training the forearms and grip musculature via the thicker grips, but also for providing joint friendly and incredibly comfortable positions that allow maximal overload. I highly recommend giving the N-GAGE GRIPS a try ASAP. "
Dr. Joel Seedman
PhD in Kinesiology, Owner of Advanced Human Performance, @dr.joelseedman_ahp on IG
"I like these better than any other fat bar attachment I've seen. They have a little bit of an angle through them which allows you to supinate or pronate your grip depending on how you're holding the bar or the dumb bell. Also having the fatter grip is helping to engage more muscles and get everything 'turned on'. These grips have been a game changer."
Coach Scott Caufield
Director of Strength & Conditioning at Norwich University, @coachcaulfield on IG
"N-GAGE GRIPS have helped me train everyone from youth to elite level athletes. The thick grip not only improves forearm strength, but the added angle helps align the joint into proper movement patterns. This has helped reduce overuse injuries in the weight room while improving performance!"
Coach Brett Kelly

Alternate grip adds variety to workouts.
Using the N-Gage grips allows me to add variety to my workouts with the equipment I already have. Was worried because I have smaller hands but the grips work great!
No more wrist or shoulder pain
Like most lifters I have a bad shoulder and can never get comfortable on bench press. These grips give a comfortable angle and take all the shoulder pain away. It does not slip on the bar when I use it.
Also I have a damaged wrist and these grips make it comfortable now when doing curls and chin-ups.
I carry these to every workout even if I do not plan on using them.
Bench Bar rotates
The grips are excellent with dumbbells. However when i used them for bench (olympic bar at gyms), i noticed the bar rotates. I used it for flat bench and incline. The bar is unstable, even though i have a firm grip during reps. An adapter needs to be made, because I cant tape a bar at the gym.
Just what the Dr. Ordered!!!
Love these grips. They made my grip feel immediately better. These things are built to last as well. Great product! I’m spreading the word for you guys. Thanks again.
These grips are the perfect angle and have as much tackiness as can be expected for rubber grips. My only complaint, which is rather significant, is that they do not grip the bar as securely as some other makes. Especially some of the cheaper bars and Oly Lift diameter bars. I had to use tape to add a millimeter to the bar for the grips otherwise they literally would slide out and rotate on the bar in the middle of a set.

I’ve used these for various exercises and they work great. Using a more natural posture to hold a straight bar takes unnecessary stress off your wrists and forearms. These really allow you to work the muscles you’re intending to work during a specific movement. Quality is great, they stay on firmly where you place them and the grip is not slippery. I highly recommend getting these!
A must have for your home gym or commercial gym use. I love the fact that I can convert a straight barbell into an EZ Curl Barbell. One feels your bicep muscles working instantly.
I’ve been trying to build a home gym for a while now and it’s hard to find good deals nowadays paying $40 for these grips to turn my barbell into a curl bar is a huge benefit! These grips are flat out awesome!! I feel a huge difference in curls comfort wise, and can feel every inch of my bicep working properly. I’m sore after every arm day with these grips! I hope everyone hears about this product!
I’ve had my N-Gage Grips for over a week now and put them to use right away. I managed to do pain-free barbell curls with decent weight for the first time in 2 years. I love these things. Rope push downs and and over-head cable extensions were that more comfortable with N-Gage Grips. My forearms are also getting some work done, evidenced by the fact that they were sore for the first time in a long time after my first use. I am glad that I invested in this product and wish this new business success moving forward
I honestly thought this would be a waste. Boy was I wrong! These made my work outs better. More comfortable grip on ez bar and barbell. Arm workouts are more intense Liked it so much I bought another pair.
I was looking to get swiss bars for couple years now and just didn't have the money in our budget to invest. When I saw these, they were a no brainer and much more budget friendly to offer the ability to train our athletes with a more neutral grip for pressing exercises. The versatility in unmatched and I highly recommend for any coach to add to their athletes training.
Muscle tension & irradiation
Sherrington's Physiological Law of Irradiation: "The ability of one muscle when it tenses strongly to recruit the tension of nearby muscles."
Translation: A thicker grip = more muscle activation in the hand and forearm = more tension in connected muscle groups (e.g. biceps, triceps, shoulders, back, chest).
More muscle tension leads to more muscle growth, more strength gains, and more stabilized joints.
MOre neutral grip
N-GAGE GRIPS are a less expensive and more versatile alternative to EZ bars, multi-grip bars, and other specialty bars that are designed to create a more neutral grip.
As you know, straight bars force your hands into fully supinated (palms up) or fully pronated (palms down) positions which can be pretty restrictive on your joints. This can sometimes cause pain and discomfort and even prevent you from hitting the muscles your trying to target.
A more neutral-angled grip helps relieves that joint stress in your wrists, elbows, and shoulders and can help you connect better with your target muscle group.
Stick to the same routine and you'll likely continue to see the same results. When you add variation to your training, you're much more likely to see and feel more progress.
Whether it's a new split, a new exercise, a new machine, a new variation of an old exercise, or using a new tool like N-GAGE GRIPS, variation impacts your workouts in several ways.
A new physical stimulus can allow you to increase activation of specific muscles. A new tool or routine can also bring new focus to your workout and help improve the mind-muscle connection. And finally, variation helps keep your workouts new and fresh which will help you stay more consistent.
What are N-GAGE GRIPS made of?
N-GAGE GRIPS are made from a proprietary industrial strength NATURAL RUBBER compound. It took us dozens of material iterations and formulations to land on this specific material.
Although natural rubber is generally more expensive than synthetic polymers and silicon (what most other similar products are made of), we wanted to develop a product that we could stand behind and trust to be safe under heavy weights and extreme use over a long period of time.
No other rubber material has the tensile strength, abrasion resistance, oil resistance, and elasticity of NATURAL rubber.
Why should I care about grip strength?
1. Your grip strength can be a significant limiting factor to getting bigger and stronger. If you can't hold on long enough to reach near full exhaustion of your target muscles, those muscles won't be stimulated enough to grow like you want them to.
2. Because nobody wants a weak grip or small forearms, but you've probably not devoted much time at all to developing either.
3. Grip strength is key for nearly all athletic performance (except maybe soccer and marathon running). Think about it. Everything from swinging a bat to dribbling a basketball to catching a football or even swinging a tennis racket or spiking a volleyball require well developed hand and forearm strength for optimum performance.
4. Studies have found grip strength has been correlated to lower cardio vascular disease and all-cause mortality. This is likely primarily due to simply leading a healthy and fit lifestyle and the obvious health benefits realized from it, but it's worth a mention nonetheless.

N-GAGE GRIPS are a less expensive and more versatile strength training tool designed to provide similar benefits as dozens of other innovations that have found their way into our home and commercial gyms over the last several decades.
Things like EZ bars, thick bars, swiss/football bars, buffalo bars, cable machines and unique attachments, other machines of all varieties, etc.
If you think EZ bars and cable attachments are gimmicky, then N-GAGE GRIPS probably aren't for you.
Why are they not cheaper?
They aren't "cheap" because they aren't cheaply made. Here's what you get for $39:
- A 60-Day Money Back Guarantee
- A Lifetime Warranty
- A product made in the USA
- A product made from a proprietary industrial strength natural rubber (not a cheap synthetic polymer or flimsy silicon)
- A completely unique and patented product that will allow you to do lift variations that have never before been possible. (Think of it as an adjustable thick-grip EZ bar in your gym bag).
Will N-GAGE GRIPS cure my joint pain?
No, probably not. And we're not trying to claim they will. Joint pain can be caused by a thousand different things, and you should consult you doctor to verify you don't have any serious underlying injuries.
That being said, N-GAGE GRIPS have been able to help people reduce some of the joint pain that can be caused by the restrictive positions a straight bar can put on their wrists, elbows and shoulders.
There's no magic pill here. Just another useful tool to help you optimize your workouts.
Can people with smaller-than-average hands use them?
The larger grip diameter will create a slight challenge for anyone with smaller hands. Most women, for example, will have a different experience using N-GAGE GRIPS than most men.
Those with small hands may want to limit the use of N-GAGE GRIPS to warmup sets or only reps of lighter weights. This will prime the users grip for the rest of their reps and will prevent their inability to keep ahold of the grips from limiting the amount of load they are able to put on the target muscle group.
If you order N-GAGE GRIPS and determine they are just too large for your hands to be effective, simply return them for a full refund!
Do you sell internationally outside the US?
Not right now, but we're working on it! We hope to have our international distribution channels established soon, but in the meantime we've heard great things about MyUS.com .
