The bar shaft is made from precision ground alloy steel and has 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 excellent whip and long-term performance of our bars.
The bar sleeves are precision welded to eliminate failure. The weld is recessed to not interfere with plates resting flush against the sleeve collar. Each sleeve is coated with hard chrome for protection against dropping. Sleeves rotate around high strength composite bushings used in aircraft and automotive industries for smooth rotation.

Loving the whip and the smoothness of the barbell. Excellent!!
Great, I will be buying more barbells for my team within the next few months.
We LOVE our new American Barbell training bars! Will definitely buy them again!
Got this bad boy for $295 with free shipping for Black Friday deals! Best deal in barbells. Beautiful, classic look with a buttery smooth feel and quiet too! You won’t be disappointed!!
So this bar is really fantastic, I got this bar when my job took me away from my favorite OLY lifting gym and I decided to start online programming. It has a great knurling, very grippy and is equally suited for max attempts and higher rep work outs. The whip is excellent, and the bar is obviously made tough as nails. I use this primarily outside in a humid environment and about 6 months later it still looks basically new. The spin of the sleeve is better than most barbells you'll find at any crossfit box let a lone a golds or commercial level fitness center. Honestly a great purchase and a great deal. There are more expensive barbells, but this is a great one for the price. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking to start their own home gym or even an affiliate who is trying to build a barbell club, great job American Barbell.
