  • Focus on squat movement and technique, not discomfort, numbness or shearing muscle trauma

  • Bar no longer presses against your neck, and less shoulder stress when holding the bar
  • Reduces risks of injuries, protects against crush trauma, maximizes mass-building potential
  • Easy to use. Snap it into the bar to keep it centered on every set. Provides a stronger connection compared to a typical, foam-based barbell pad

Stop Rushing Through Your Squats Because You Want to Get That Bar Off Your Back!

The patented, original Manta Ray® gives you the true squat experience of taking away your pain, so you can concentrate on technique. But if you’re looking for a pad, the Manta Ray® is not a pad – or a pillow. We offer something more advanced, a Squat Load Distribution Device. Less injuries, less rehab, better squats. Read on…

Takes pressure off your neck and back
When using only the steel bar, the load concentrates on that small contact area against your neck. But the Manta Ray® increases the bar’s narrow surface by 1600%. With pain off your neck, pressure redistributes evenly across the Manta Ray.

Spine saver
With dramatically less force crushing against it, the spine no longer gives out before your legs.

Relaxes your shoulders
Raw bar no longer rests on your shoulders, or pulls your arms back – the causes of squat-related shoulder injuries.

By purchasing, you’re only a days away from using a comprehensive, injury protection tool

Virtually indestructible
Manufactured w/ high-tech polyurethane polymer. Will last years of tough use. Longest reported use – 20 years.

Holds up to 800 pounds

Rigid and Comfortable
How so? It’s comfortable because the weight is dispersed through the device, much like a sitting on a simple metal folding chair compared to sitting against a metal railing.

USA made product sold to hundreds of thousands. Shipped to pro teams, commercial gyms, and schools all over the world.
