Rogue recently launched the RML-590C power rack, adding to their already extensive fleet of heavy-duty gym racks.

Designed as the compact cousin of the RML-690C power rack, it features the same 24” back section for plate storage but reduces the front section from 43” down to 30”. The total length of the RML-590C is 67” compared to 80” for the 690C, making it a little nicer for the smaller garage gym spaces.

The RML-590C is a 6-post power rack with 90” uprights and a footprint of 67” long by 53” wide. The uprights have laser-cut numbering and holes spaced in the Westside pattern: 1” in the bench and clean pull zone, 2″ spacing above and below.  

It is constructed with 3”x3” 11 gauge steel, and ⅝” hardware. The eleven color finish options available are Bright Blue, Bright Green, Burnt Orange, Dark Blue, Dark Red, Gunmetal, Light Gray, Rogue Red, Satin Black, Satin Clear, and White.

The RML-590C also comes with 8 plate posts for plate storage, Slinger compatible cross members, a stabilizing Rogue nameplate cross member, and a 43” single skinny pull-up bar.

Product Highlights

The RML-590C is compatible with tools and accessories from Rogues Monster Lite Series. Some of the highlights of this series include the safety spotter arms, and strap safety system for lifting safe by yourself, the matador for an adjustable dip station, J-cups for adjustable bar placement, and the Slinger system for a lat-pulldown station.

There are over 50 accessories that fit the Monster Lite Series that can transform the power rack into an effective multi-function area.

The 6-post design of the RML-590C ensures the unit has rock-solid stability and does not need to be mounted to the floor, but it’s still recommended to mount it with the optional mounting hardware. When I get a chance to do a full review, I will make sure to test the stability when it is not mounted.

With a weight of 495lbs, you might need a hand when the delivery driver shows up, or have a simple bribe ready to get the driver to help! 

Warranty

Rogue offers a Limited Lifetime Warranty on structural welds and frames, as long as the damage is not due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage, or handling by the user.

Final Thoughts

I have used numerous Rogue products over the years and haven’t been disappointed yet. There is definitely a “you get what you pay for” element with Rogue as it’s on the pricier end of the fitness equipment spectrum.

For the price, you will get a highly customizable, rock-solid piece of equipment that should last long enough to pass down a generation or two.

When I get my hands on this rack I will do a full review with set-up and hopefully can shed a little more light on the product. If it’s like everything else I’ve purchased from Rogue, I’m sure it won’t disappoint.
