The Softtouch Ballet Barre can be adjusted from 31″ up to 49″.
However, its flexibility is somewhat limited because it only has fixed height settings that you can choose from.
The levels cannot be liberally adjusted. They go up by 4″ increments, but the range is still fine for both ballet or simple workouts.
This single barre features an elegant bronze-colored powder-coat finish that will not fade or be scratched easily.
Non-skid Rubber Feet
This portable barre is stable enough for its intended purpose.
Its stability is further reinforced by the non-skid rubber on its feet.
Design And Specifications
The Softtouch is a portable barre that is 4.5 feet long and 2 feet wide. Its size is just right for a single user.
However, your space can be limited by the connections between the bar and the vertical support. They are composed of protruding metal plates and bolts. You may hurt your fingers when your hand slides to them, so you should be cautious not to reach that far.
It has a 1.5″ rail diameter that is the optimum size for users of any age.
It is sturdy enough to hold users weighing up to 300 lbs.
Is it easy to set-up?
Yes. There are no instructions but the components are labeled properly so it is still easy to identify what parts should go together. However, some people reportedly received missing or damaged parts, specifically bolts and washers.
Is it easy to disassemble for storage?
It is easily collapsible. You just need an allen wrench to detach the top of the legs from the bar.
Is this freestanding barre stable?
Yes. Its rubber feet help the barre be stable, even on carpeted floor.
How much weight can it support?
It has a weight capacity of 300 lbs. However, remember that this is a portable ballet barre so it is still only recommended for light stretching and keeping your balance.
Is it height adjustable?
Yes. However, the settings are fixed at 4″ increments.
If you are looking for a portable single barre made of metal, the Vita Vibe BD48 is a better option.
It’s six inches shorter but it has a modular design so you can just buy longer barres to extend its current length. It is also fully adjustable to suit your desired height. Best of all, it has a 10-year warranty.
