The Tsunami Bar® LIGHT, LIGHT Plus, Ultra-LIGHT, and CAMO are different from the standard Tsunami Bar® LEVEL 1, 3, & 5 from a materials standpoint regarding the outer surface. The LIGHT, LIGHT Plus, Ultra-LIGHT, and CAMO bars are constructed using a highly durable thermoplastic rubber as opposed to the hard surface of the standard Tsunami Bars®. This thermoplastic rubber design has a little softer feel allowing the bar to "conform" more to the user's body.
As an example, when a Tsunami Bar® LIGHT Plus (darkblue label) is used for traditional squats the bar will conform to the user's upper back and shoulder structure very nicely providing an extremely comfortable feel for the lifter. Gone are the days of rough steel knurling cutting into the back of your neck and shoulders. Gone are the days of ridgid steel bars dumping unnecessary axial pressure directly onto your vertebrae.
The Tsunami Bar® LIGHT Plus still provides the same great patented Tsunami "Flex" just in a downsized easy to handle bar. At 72" the LIGHT Plus bar will still fit perfectly on all of your standard exercise equipment and is suitable to perform all of the usual lifts.
The Tsunami Bar® LIGHT Plus may accommodates up to 45-lbs on each end of the bar.
