The GOAT Attachment gets its name from being one of the most versatile attachments ever or Greatest Of All Time. Designed in 2021, we realized its versatility for a wide variety of exercises deserved a fitting name. This short lever arm (24″) features a bronze bushing for smooth rotation and 5 holes in the bracket, allowing for 11 different angles to be pinned. The GOAT Attachment was the predecessor to the angled step-up attachment we made back in 2019, prior to switching from 3/4″ to 1″ holes. For an in-depth review of the GOAT Attachment, check out Kurt Locker’s YouTube video. If you want to make the most functionality out of your rack pickup a GOAT Attachment today.
