I have no skill, time, or patience to assemble complicated equipment.

Luckily, the BD0 can be assembled in a snap. The bars are joined by heavy-duty plastic clamps. You don’t even need any tools to put them together.

For easy storage, you just swivel the feet after loosening the clamps and it is ready to lie under a bed or lean against a wall.

Modular Design

Buying the B60 is like getting a base for something that can be converted into different forms.

Because of how it is structured, you can buy horizontal bars to change it into a shorter or a longer barre, or even a double barre depending on your needs.

And when you do so, you can still expect the same excellent quality as the original barre!

Fully Height Adjustablevita-vibe-b60-adjustable-height

I like how it adapts to the different height requirements of my exercises.

You can lower the horizontal bar to 6″ or set it as high as 46″.

You can do the adjustment using the sure-grip hand knobs on the clamps.

Others

  • Both the horizontal bar and the frame have a powder-coated satin silver finish that has anti-microbial properties.

Design and Specifications

The Vita Vibe B60 has a 1.5″ diameter that enables me to have a good grip of the barre. This size is perfect even for younger users.

The barre is fairly stable considering that its total weight is only 9lbs.

Its 28″ wide foot barre with rubber ends supplements this stability.

F.A.Q.

Is it easy to set-up?

Yes. You can assemble it by yourself without any tools.

Is it ideal for personal or studio use?

Being a lightweight single barre that is only 5 feet wide, I recommend it for personal use. It will not hold up to multiple or heavy use expected in a commercial setting.

No. It is flexible and can be easily adjusted anywhere between 6″ and 46″.

Are freestanding barres stable?

Yes. It is stable enough for ballet exercise. It may seem too light but this actually has purpose. Instead of putting your body’s weight on it, you should try to avoid tipping it over by keeping your balance yourself and using your core muscles.

Can it be used as a gymnastics bar?

No. Its highest setting and limited stability are not enough for this purpose.

Will the aluminum bar turn black?

No. The barre is made from high quality, powder coated aluminum. It does not dry out, splinter, or require any form of maintenance.

Other Options

You can also consider another lightweight but strong ballet barre, the Vita Vibe B48. It is a foot shorter but it also has the same reliable features as the Vita Vibe B60.

This proudly USA-made ballet barre is very affordable, and is also backed by a 10-year warranty.

What a steal!
