Strong recommendation
I’m surprised there are no reviews. I've been using this cage for almost a year now. I chose the Riot model over the other models because I wanted this to be the foundation of my gym. I wanted the increased tube size and the Riot offered me the best features and flexibility for my goals.

The 200 cm height was important because I hate feeling cramped in a cage when I’m really going for it. The depth is good – there is space to walk a squat back further than I’ve needed to. I based the width on measuring the racks that I liked at the gym and this one feels very comfortable and natural to me to rack/unrack and perform the moves.

The pull-up station is great for weighted pulls and chin-ups with a good range of grips and distances. My Fat Gripz fit on the bars in all the positions and I use it with inversion boots as well.

I have never used the standard dip station. I added the dip horns and use it as a basic captain’s chair for core work and obviously for weighted dips. I want to hang them outside the cage so I don’t have to move them to alternate with a barbell move. The only inconvenience is I added the plate holder attachments and one of them will always have to sit directly under the dip horns.

Safety arm spacing is standard which hasn’t been a problem for me. I added a couple sets of the plate holders to the cage for added stability. They did work pretty well for providing that counterbalance. But they realistically can only be put in one place so it’s not a real solution for storage. I have a separate weight rack and wish I’d just invested in more of those over the attachments. I do appreciate the barbell holders at the rear though.

I kept the bottom crossbar attached and did not bolt the cage to the floor for a few months. Loaded plate holders kept it stable for most lifts. But it always seemed to be in the way for bench presses and I did get too much wobble for my liking. Generally when I racked a heavy barbell with chains or when shifting the centre of gravity with weighted dips or pull ups. I anchored it into the concrete floor and removed the crosspost. It’s the Rock of Gibraltar now.

I recommend anchoring the cage to some foundation or it might limit how heavy you go on some lifts. The J-Hooks are a bit too deep for my liking. They work, and they are secure, but when I’m benching without a spotter I wish I didn’t have to lift it so high to move it in position.

I use this cage in some way for every single training session. My complaints are rather minor and I would say the quality and value-for-money is ace. Review by Dale / (Posted on 7/1/2017)
