Let’s take a look at the BlackWing Adjustable Bench.
Rep Fitness benches are known for their sturdy build and their patented Zero Gap technology. They are extremely solid and reasonably priced for their features and quality. Another bench is added to the Rep benches and comes with new upgrades. The adjustment piece of the original ZeroGap technology was straight beneath the pad. The BlackWing Adjustable Bench has a new design with a pin on the side of the pad, so it is easier to adjust.
Here’s some of the styles we are going to look at:
BlackWing Adjustable Bench – Overview
The BlackWing Adjustable Bench is a high-quality, adjustable, flat-incline-decline bench that combines all the best qualities of Rep Fitness’ top benches. This bench is made with 11-gauge steel, can handle 1,000 lbs, and highlights enhanced front and rear feet for improved stability. The grooved rubber feet help keep the bench in place while protecting the floor. It is a heavy-duty bench with an improved, patented ZeroGap feature that makes the bench easier to use. The seat can slide forward and backward so the gap between the seat and back pad in all positions can be eliminated.
The closed ladder system along the back pad enables 12 easy and secure angle adjustments from -8 to 85 degrees. This bench is compatible with the Leg Roller Attachment and gives you more leg exercises. The adjustable seat pad has six angles and utilizes a new, patent-pending design that blends the comfort of a ladder design with the security of a pop-pin when moving the seat up. You can choose between standard-width or 14” wide pads for more shoulder support. Both pads are built from the new, extra grippy, thick CleanGrip material.
The BlackWing is finished with high-end finishes, like a cut-out REP logo on the ladder, stainless-steel finished handles, and a laser-cut mountain logo on the front foot. It is compliant with IPF competition height standards and is made for excellent leg drive for all lifters. It can be stored in an upright position, taking up only 3.1 sqft of space. Its space-saving design features an integrated metal storage stand with a protective plastic liner. At 131 lbs, the BlackWing is very maneuverable because of its horizontal, knurled, stainless-steel handle. It was designed in Denver, CO, and is protected by one or more issued and/or pending patents.
BlackWing Adjustable Bench – In Summary
That’s our close-up look at the BlackWing Adjustable Bench.
The BlackWing utilizes a patent-pending ratcheting system to efficiently adjust the angle and securely lock it in with a pin. It also has a patent-pending seat design that is new to the US, making it easier to adjust your seat angle and simultaneously more secure. It is a heavy-duty FID bench that can be stored vertically and is leg roller compatible.
