This is the original Manta Ray manufactured in the United States by Advanced Fitness. Don’t accept any knock-off versions. Made with high-tech, polyurethane polymer, virtually indestructible for years of tough use. You could drive a big truck over the Manta Ray, without doing more than marring the surface. When using the Manta Ray, maintain an upright position when performing barbell back squats.
Focus on squat movement and technique, not discomfort, numbness or shearing muscle trauma
Load distribution takes the bar off your shoulders and spine, and spreads the weight evenly across your trapezius and torso muscles
Bar no longer presses against your neck, and less shoulder stress when holding the bar
Reduces risks of injuries, protects against crush trauma, maximizes mass-building potential
Easy to use. Snap it into the bar to keep it centered on every set. Provides a stronger connection compared to a typical, foam-based barbell pad
