Benefits of the Manticore 3 x 3 Inch Collegiate Rack

  • 4 POST COLLEGIATE STYLE
    This 4 post Collegiate Rack is the Atlas of power rack configurations and a throwback to the good ol’ days of varsity sports, those ancient times, back when you felt like you could carry the world on your shoulders and not feel sore for the next week. Like your pre-training warm-up, grabbing a few sets of plate pegs for the rear uprights is optional… buuuut it does make for easy-peasy access to all of your weight plates, and you’ll probably regret skipping it. The front foot extensions offer extra stability, allow you to do band work from the outer uprights, and offer 2 barbell storage slots. And if you’re vertically gifted, you’ll LOVE having the pull-up bar mounted on those 90” uprights.
  • COMPATIBLE WITH OTHER BRANDS
    Don’t let brand limitations hold you back! Like our Hydra racks, the uprights of our Manticore racks measure true 3″ x 3″ (which is EXACTLY 76.2mm x 76.2mm) instead of the typical 75mm x 75mm uprights of other brands’ imported racks. By matching the same tubing specs as many of our American competitors who make their racks on US soil *respectfully tips hat*, you can mix and match rack attachments freely without swearing your undying fealty to one brand — Now that’s customization! Just be sure to ask your oracle (Hey, Alexa!) and confirm compatibility BEFORE you start the mix-and-match fest, capiche?
  • MODULAR DESIGN
    Customized racks are the best things since personalized sub sandwich shops, and they don’t even have that weird smell. Choose a pre-made design or craft your set-up to your personal taste. Create a bulk order now or build out your home gym over time — the choice is yours. Add some bolt-on plate pegs, a lat pulldown, and some extra pickles sandwich j-cups, just to round out the metaphor. Please?

More LEGENDARY features of the Manticore 3 x 3 Inch Collegiate Rack

Super Storage Extension

Plates, attachments, pegs, or even pulls – the additional storage section is your ultimate lifting champion. But unlike your last workout partner (thanks for nothing, Achilles), it will always be there to support you. Storage options include bolt-on pegs, change plate pegs, barbell holders, and more!

Side Keyhole Slots

Ready to settle for 1″ holes on all 4 sides? Nah, your inner Swoledilocks deserves “just right” all day, every day. That’s why we went with keyhole slots on the sides of the uprights, so you can side-mount your 5/8″ attachments… as long as they’re destined for true 3″ x 3″ tubing — perfect if you prefer the more economical Hydra rack attachments. Now that’s a fairy tale come true.

Laser Cut Numbers

Trying to line up your j-cups or safety straps is arguably the hardest exercise. Fortunately, your days of cursing as a warm-up are over! No more fumbling around trying to guess the right setting — the laser cut numbers ensure perfect balance every time. Now you can go back to doing real gym math: counting by 45s.

Hefty 11-Gauge Steel

Built with 11-gauge steel, this mythical beast can handle the weight capacity needs of world-class lifters and old ancient-school Olympians alike. With thicker steel, you get even more stability than our Light Commercial Rack, which means less shaking when racking your barbell or while using attachments. Even if it’s not bolted down, you’ll feel that true #heavyweight status.
