- Exceeds all IPF standards.
- Extra wide, 73-inch lifting area.
- Absence of lower rear crossmember provides more room for the spotter to operate.
- Hooks/hangers easily slide for width adjustment via linear bearings.
- Hangers are constructed from a single piece of uncut steel that encircle the mounting point above.
- Fully welded upper assembly for maximum strength and to ensure proper geometry during setup.
- Upper assembly tilts on bearings, rather than using a bolt as the pivot point.
Monolifts are, by their very purpose, serious devices. The Legend Fitness Monolift certainly looks the part. To endure the sorts of loads that powerlifters demand, you expect to find a frame built from 4- by 4-inch, 11 gauge tubing. A massive frame is only a part of what makes a monolift a monolift. To understand just how strong a monolift is, you have to look at every component between the hooks and the frame. When we looked some of the monolifts that were already on the market, we were shocked at some of the weak points we found.
What makes the Legend Fitness Monolift different?
The Legend Fitness Monolift has no such concerns. Each hook is constructed from a 1.25- by 1.5-inch tube welded in between two pieces of laser-cut, 3/8-inch steel plate that completely encircle a short span, 1-inch solid steel rod above. The contact points on the hook are 1.5-inch thick ultra-high molecular weight (UHMW) polymer that protects the knurling on bars and helps absorb impact energy in emergency situations. These polymer contact points, secured by five 1/2-inch bolts, are replaceable. The width between the hooks can be easily and smoothly adjusted thanks to linear bearings rolling on chrome-plated steel. To top it all off (literally) the entire upper assembly is fully welded for rigidity and to ensure that all the geometry is square before someone steps underneath, and it all tilts on tough pillow block bearings.
Other expected features are there: a smooth-operating pump jack, a thick safety pin with height settings in 25 increments, web strap safeties, and robust bar catches that quickly fall back. The Legend Fitness Monolift also has resistance band pegs. Some features on the 3907 that are less common include plenty of room for a spotter and UHMW-encased storage pegs for bands, chains, etc.
It took us a little while to bring a monolift to the market, but we wanted to make sure that when we did, it represented the best that the market had to offer. This is it! And if you want a monolift with plenty of plate storage, you’ll find that in item 3908.
