Have a question?
Been talking about this project with coworkers and I can't wait to actually have it in my hands. Any updates?
Just ordered the X Bar as well.
Any chance for a bit of discount on it?
Im very excited for this, thanks for the update :)
@thomas Sorry for the delay. I am waiting on just a few more bits of info to share. Give me till Monday and I promise an update.
The next few days are over. It's now over a week - where's the update?
@LocksmithArmy Yes! We have exciting news. Things are going better than expected. I will be doing a thorough update in the next few days. Please stay tuned.
Any update on production?
Please email us at email@example.com.
Any chance backers might get a discount if they want to order an original xbar while waiting for the new one to come out? I know the price went down to $139 from $149 on the site but I'm on the fence about ordering one at that price for the summer.
Thanks and glad you're funded!!
We're going to do our very best to produce an app even though we didn't hit our stretch goal. We have had it in the designing phase for quite some time. I'll keep you posted. Thanks again for the support!
Well stretch goal was not reached. But very excited that it's a done deal for the main goal! Congratulations! Will you be doing the app in the future maybe with in the next year or so? Congrats again and looking forward into this journey in the making!
I own the xbar and the quality of it far exceed my expectations. I found it useful living in an apartment. However whenever I travel I can't bring it with me. This is the solution!
Will definitely support Damian again. He is Super responsive and responsible. When I had problems with delivery he responded and settled it personally!
Kudos to you Damian!
Hey Eric, sorry, but none of the rewards come with a shirt except the actual (20 shirt reward)
I pledged for the Max Kit. Just wondering, does it come with a t-shirt?
I don't know WHY it posted twice. Sorry.
That may seem like a high goal, but we have received multiple quotes for an immersive fitness app and a good app, with multiple layers costs $10,000 or more. So if we set our goal at $100K it would have killed us to produce a $10K app. We learned a lot on our first campaign years ago when we promised stretch goals that were too expensive to produce. I hope that makes sense and we appreciate your support!
It's just too much. I will be removing my pledge.
Sorry but we have done this before in 2014 and we shipped almost 400 units around the world. Shipping cost up between $40 and $75 depending on the country. So we felt $50 was fair.
So I was about to pledge for the max pack.... but I live in the United Kingdom, England... you want to charge 50 dollars for delivery? I just dont even know what to say. Outrageous.
- thank you! We are off to the races now. Thanks for the support.
great product guys
Congradulations on reaching your goal. I was watching it uesterday hoping youd hit soon
Unfortunately we can not change the rewards once they have been used. I know from our previous campaign that we spent well over $50 to ship each foreign order.
The good news is we have some HUGE advertising launching this week that will for sure put us over the top. Stay tuned
Is it possible to reduce international shipping? That might help to gain more interest abroad.
Yes, you can contact us directly through xbar.com or firstname.lastname@example.org to add on when the campaign is over.
Good call. We will release our first stretch goal sooner than later. Expect it by the end of the week or earlier.
Will there be an add-on for additional bands?
I'd consider at least busting out the first stretch goal to get some hype for it, as that might entice more people to pledge, or up their current pledges in anticipation. Just speaking from a lot of backing experience, this seems to be a good way to draw in more pledges from those on the fence, plus some backers don't check in after pledging, so this might be a good way to entice higher pledges up front that you might not get otherwise!
The bar is incredibly strong. We have tested it up to 200 pounds dead center and the bar barely flexes. So that would be for close grip exercises. Then, if your hands are in a regular grip or a wide grip, you can more than double that weight. We have never had any issues.
The bar itself is very strong steel, including the connector. The grip is soft silicone rubber. The swivels are zinc-coated steel and the docks are polypropylene.
How much resistance can it sustain, what's its max recommended band(s) or lbs for workouts like deadlifts and squats?
Thanks for the quick reply. Much appreciated!
The metal components do have a rust proof coating, but I still would suggest keeping it dry if possible.
How does the XBAR fare in heavy rain and snow? Wondering if it will handle being assembled and used in harsh conditions without fear of rust.
We will make it. No doubt
Will we make it guys?! I want my xbar flyt!!, �
Haha. Love it! Well, I'm glad we could help. �
My girlfriend and I have been discussing how our workout time has turned from near daily to next to nothing since we have met... when you get happy, you get fat ;) I am super excited to have a reasonably priced workout system at home to to demolish my first jelly roll, and not have to leave my happy place ;)
The inner diameter of the swivel oval is exactly 1". The wall is exactly 1/2" wide x a little over 1/8" thick. Let me know if that helps.
Hi Damian. I would like to know the size of the swivels where we attach resistance bands clips. Because I have a couple of them but it's smaller clips than what I can see on your photos so I was wondering if it will do.
Awesome! Just pledged for the max kit myself. Cant wait to see what the stretch goals are going to be!
Absolutely. We just discussed that a couple days ago. We have three or four good ones cued up. We will release the first one as soon as we get a little closer to funded.
Thanks for the support!
Hello! Was just wondering if you'll be planning any stretch goals for the campaign.
Understood. Well you won't be disappointed with the original. It's an awesome piece of equipment. Good luck on your fitness journey!
@Damian that takes me out of it then. I need to get in shape before summer lol. I guess I'll just buy the original xbar for now.
@evans We anticipate all rewards to be shipped by November.
When do you anticipate shipping the final product to your backers? I didn't see a timeline on the Kickstarter campaign page.
