Train Old School
French Strongman Louis “Apollon” Uni came up with the Apollon Wheel in the 19th century. The original Apollon Wheel was made of an old pair of railroad car wheels connected by an axle and had a total weight of approx. 166kg.
Easy use for block pulls
These Apollon's wheels are inspired by the original style of the railroad car wheels. To make them fit and standardized, they weigh 20kg each and have a 50mm collar opening to be easily put on any bar with 50mm sleeves.
Even if you don’t plan to bring the Apollon Wheel overhead, like in famous strongman events, the diameter of the wheels are ideal for 4”/10cm block pulls. This eliminates setting up blocks and eases loading & unloading during training. Pair these wheels with an axle bar to get a more authentic Apollon Wheel experience. We recommend using 30mm thick floor matting for deadlifts and drop pads when dropping from overhead.
