If you are on a hunt for a new power tower, then just stop for a second and take a closer look at the HI-MAT adjustable power tower. According to the online reviews, it’s one of the best affordable full towers currently on the market.
However, please note that there are currently 3 versions available, each is colored differently and also different in design and features. We are reviewing the black version with yellow pads.
HI-MAT brand is relatively new on the market. After a bit of research, I found out that they are mostly known for, surprise, power towers. So without further due let’s jump into features.
HI-MAT Adjustable Power Tower Review
Max User Weight
Let’s start with the construction. Frame is made of quality steel with a curved H-shaped base, which is equipped with 4 anti-skid feet.
The dip station is equipped with dip bars, cushioned back-pad and elbow pads, which are yellow-n-black in color. They support 440 lbs (199.6 kg) of weight and the spacing between the bars is 23” (58.4 cm).
The multi-grip pull-up bar comes with a straight, narrow and curved grips, which can be used for pull-ups, chin-ups and muscle ups. It can be adjusted with 5 height settings, ranging from 61” to 96.5” (155 – 245.1 cm), making it effectively one of the tallest power towers on the market.
Another great addition located at the bottom of the base are the push-up bars.
The assembled dimensions are 47.2″(L) x 30.7″(W) x 61″to 96.5″(H) [120 cm(L) x 77.9 cm(W) x 155 to 245.1 cm(H)] and the empty weight is 52.9 lbs (24 kg).
Rock Solid Construction
The assembly of the HI-MAT adjustable power tower is pretty straightforward (still talking about the black version). With the provided tools, diagrams and instruction manual, it is solo-able and do-able in less than 2 hours.
With that being said, I’d suggest having another person to help you out, because it will speed things up and also it might be a little inconvenient if you are on your own and below average height.
Once you have it assembled, I bet you are going to be surprised how sturdy the tower is. Considering the empty weight of 52.9 lbs (which is not much), the tower is really sturdy and stable.
The H-shaped curved base is very well designed and I have no problem believing that even bulkier guys can do muscle ups on it (provided they can actually do muscle ups ^^) without tipping the tower over. In any case, you can always add weight plates or something heavy on the base to support it even more.
The multi-grip pull-up bar is sturdy and comfortable on hands and tall users are going to love the 96.5” height. It’s definitely one of the tallest power towers available.
The 23” space between the dip bars is just okay for most guys and gals. The cushioned elbow rests along with the back-rest are pretty comfortable. The dip bars themselves are pretty standard, the L-shaped design.
Pros and Cons
Let’s summarize all the information from above into pros and cons.
Conclusion – Should You Go For It?
To put it very simply – yes. Personally, I did not find any specific issue that would pose a challenge to anyone’s workout. It is one sturdy, quality, power tower.
