20kg 1500lb Olympic Barbell
This barbell is the ideal solution for an all-purpose barbell for home gyms, commercial gyms and strength and conditioning gyms.
A 28mm diameter shaft with a tensile strength of 195k PSI which is well above the average forces of 145k PSI that barbells are usually exposed to. The maximum load-bearing capacity is 1500lb or 680kg. Together with a tensile strength of 195K PSI, this barbell has a good whip under load and is sure to last a lifetime in the home gym and at least get 5 great years in a Crossfit style gym.
The protective coating on the shaft is Cerakote. This is a relatively new concept for barbell coatings but has proven to be very effective in its use for stopping rust and corrosion. Cerakote coatings are also very thin which means the barbell knurling is not impacted by the protective coating applied.
Cerakote has also been shown to improve the longevity of barbells.
This barbell has medium knurling, also known as volcano knurling. And dual grip markers for Olympic weightlifting and Powerlifting.
The internal components of the sleeve include 1 x brass bushing in each sleeve and 4 x needle bearings. This setup reduces friction between the shaft and the sleeves and promotes a good amount of free spin or rotation for dynamic weight lifting movements.
The barbell sleeve diameter is 50mm to fit Olympic weight plates, with a rougher surface which grips the plates so they reduce any movement on the sleeve and sit tight in place.
