The barbell weights system hasn’t changed much in decades. Fastening weight plates onto a bar is slow and cumbersome, and standard plates used on their own are difficult to hold and control. 

So Les Mills looked at the whole system and developed a cutting-edge ergonomic design that speeds up plate transitions and helps people maximize their workout.

GETTING IN SHAPE JUST GOT EVEN FASTER WITH THE LES MILLS SMARTBAR™
Plate changeovers are fast and seamless due to a head with retractable teeth (we call it the 'gator') at each end of the SMARTBAR™ that holds up to three weight plates in place. The plates simply slide on the bar and lock into place on the gator. When you need to change plates, you just pull the release lever and slide them off.

THE PLATES ARE DESIGNED WITH THE END USER IN MIND
SMARTBAR™ weight plates have ergonomic handles, making them more like dumbbells. Being easy to grip, people can handle heavier weights and fatigue their target muscles.

The weight plate handles allow people to hold two plates in one hand, giving them more options, e.g., instead of jumping from 5.5lb (2.5kg) to 11lb (5kg) they can get there in smaller steps using the 1kg (2.2lb) plate, so they can increase their weights sooner and get stronger, faster.
