Upgrade your Reformer with the High-Precision Gearbar, offering six positions for enhanced precision and ergonomic benefits. The additional settings allow for precise initial tension and easy tension adjustments during Reformer sessions, providing a user-friendly experience for both clients and instructors.

We are an Authorized Retailer for Merrithew™.

  • Added safety
    Experience peace of mind with a stationary Gearbar that allows users to easily and safely adjust their own settings while avoiding improper installation. Securely anchor the High-Precision Gearbar with spring-loaded pins and hook spring balls into concaved spring slots for precise positioning.
  • Added options for instructors and clients
    The smaller intervals of Gearbar positions allow for more precise tension adjustments, catering to a wider range of users, including those with mobility limitations and high-performance athletes. These additional positions facilitate greater accuracy in resistance settings.
  • Easy to use
    Effortlessly move and secure the High-Precision Gearbar along the entire adjustment bar using the spring-loaded pins, streamlining tension adjustments for a seamless and uninterrupted Pilates session.


How do I adjust the settings? When the springs are fully disengaged, use the spring-loaded pins to slide the entire mechanism forward or backward and secure the Gearbar in any of the six stopper settings. Make sure the spring-loaded pins click into place and test the stability by gently moving the bar. Then, insert the desired springs into the designated slots.

Are the settings similar to the Traditional Gearbar? The High-Precision Gearbar's position is directly related to the carriage stopper, just like the Traditional system. However, the added settings on the High-Precision version allow for a closer match between the carriage and Gearbar positions. As a general rule, the numbered position of the Gearbar should align with the carriage stopper (e.g. 1 and 1, 2 and 2). The three extra settings provide more options for gradually adjusting the spring tension at the start of an exercise and throughout the entire range of motion. These added settings help prevent slackening or excessive initial tension in the springs.

To ensure optimal performance of the High-Precision Gearbar, carefully follow these guidelines for adjusting the carriage stopper and Gearbar positions.
  • Footwork: Align the knees directly above the hips while in a supine (lying on the back) position with the heels on the bar. Then, match the position of the Gearbar with the carriage stop position (e.g. 1 and 1 corresponds to the Wooden Standing Platform; 4 and 4, etc.).
  • Arm work: Adjust the rope length with the carriage stopper in position 2, and then make further adjustments as needed with the Gearbar to achieve the optimal range of motion.
  • Feet in Straps: For optimal range of motion, adjust the stopper and Gearbar after setting the rope length.
