American Barbell's Performance Bearing Bar incorporates a host of proprietary features unlike any other on the market. It's with this technology our bars spin smoother as the weight gets heavier on the bar.
The bar shaft is made from precision ground alloy steel with a hard chrome coating. The strength of the shaft is tested with every shipment of raw material to ensure we have a consistent 190,000 PSI tensile strength. This attention to detail also allows for an excellent whip and long-term performance of our bars.
The bar sleeves are precision welded to eliminate failure. The weld is semi-concealed to not interfere with plates resting flush against the sleeve collar. Each sleeve is finished with a hard chrome coating for protection against dropping. It also contains American Barbell’s proprietary concealed bearing system with higher load ratings than any bar available. A dust and chalk seal is also installed to protect and maintain longer bearing life.

this is the second bar for my wife, she has one at home and now one at the gym, she loves the knurling and the feel of the bar, plus how the bar moves.
I purchased this barbell for my wife, after she used mine, she loves this, now the only problem is that she makes me take it with us if we decided to workout at another gym.
Excellent quality bar with great spin and grip.
This is the 6th American bearing bar that I have purchased and in my opinion, it is at least equal to or better than any other bearing bar out there. The action is very smooth and the knurling is excellent. I also like the SS verses the chrome plated version of some of the others. I've been lifting for 54 years now so I've seen many different bars in my time and I love this one the best. The outstanding feature is the bearings, having both inner and outer races.
The bar showed very quickly, packaged extremely securely, in fact, it was a ***** to get out, which I was very pleased by! The bar itself is magnificent. A perfect knurling such that it doesn't absolutely destroy your hands like a brand new Eleiko, but also enough so that chalk is unnecessary. The spin on the bar is better than any other bar I have personally used, which includes several top of the line training and competition spec bars. Being used to some lesser performing bars. The best bar I have used, and is absolutely worth the price!
