The Eleiko Öppen Collars are a new user-friendly solution designed to easily secure barbell weights while lifting to improve performance and safety. The collars feature an innovative open-sided design. The design is a fresh take on a strength training staple that is traditionally constructed as a full circle requiring lifters to slide the collar the full length of the sleeve. With Öppen Collars, you simply place each collar next to the weights, press the lever down and lock them into place — securing weights in seconds.
With smart features such as integrated magnets, single-handed lever operation and powerful clamping force, the Eleiko Öppen Collars are easy to store and use. Being magnetic, users can stick the collars on stands, racks and benches for easy accessibility. The rubber interface offers a secure grip and absorbs shock when the barbell is dropped so plates stay in place.Shop Öppen Collars

We met with Björn Welde, Product Development Manager at Eleiko, to discuss collar functionality, where the name ”Öppen” really comes from and why the lifter is at the core of Eleiko’s design philosophy.Read Designer Interview

Quality is a guiding factor in all our decisions, from the materials we use to how they are combined and packaged into a finished product. The aluminium casing, NBR rubber and internal components are fully recyclable, making the Öppen Collars a conscious choice that minimizes environmental impact. Thoroughly tested with drop tests and opening/closing lever tests, the Öppen Collars are made to last.
