Size Guide

This is virtually the same barbell as our competition spec. Stainless Bearing Bar just with a bushing system.

The bar shaft is made from precision straightened stainless steel. 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. Stainless Steel offers superior corrosion resistance and can always be cleaned and repaired with no damage to the surface. Additionally, knurling set in stainless steel has a one-of-a-kind feeling that cannot be achieved with other finishes. 

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.

This is an ideal choice for those looking for a multi-purpose precision barbell that will last through the ages.

Awesome Bar

So far this bar has been great all around from squats to olympic lifts. Definitely keeping me from going too crazy in quarantine.

How this bar compares

Garage Gyms (great and fun resource) rated the knurling of the SS bearing bar as a 10 of 10 and noted that -of the all the bars reviewed (which includes numerous bars well north of $1000) this is only one of two to receive a 10 of 10 rating. Well, with the exception of center knurling, the shaft and knurling on this bar is identical. If you are looking for a very reasonably priced bar with unsurpassed “grip” -you need look no further. I hold Rogue in the highest regard -in fact, I purchased five Rogue bars (over the years) before discovering AB. I originally purchased the California bar and, as time went by, I found myself using this bar most all of the time. As to why, well my gym is in my house -not a garage or a basement- and quiet is all for the good! Also -the California bar simply has a great “just feels tight and right” quality. As mentioned in other reviews, dropping a Rogue bar is a noisy affair -dropping a California Bar results in a satisfying “whoomp” -no rattle -no clank (the same can definitly be said about this SS bar). I absolutely love the grip on the California bar. That said, the grip on this bar is “amazing 2.0”! When it comes to OLY lifts, the spin/rotation on this SS bar is absolutely spot on. I cannot comment on how this bar performs under competitive OLY loads -but as a power oriented lifter who regularly includes OLY lifts in my routine, this is simply the best bar out there in this price range -and the fact that this bar is drop dead gorgeous -well that doesn’t hurt either. Finally, thanks to all the thoughtful reviews from fellow AB purchasers -if you are considering a bar at this price point, reading reviews from purchasers of other quality bars is definitely the way to go!

Great great bar

This bar is amazing. Somehow it has a medium to light knurl and has the same bite of a medium to aggressive bar. I will say its pricey but well worth it. If you are serious this is a great bar. If you want a bar to last the ages, like I always say buy nice, not twice, and this is the bar for you. Especially for the non climate controlled lifters.

COMPLETENESS

What can and must I write for you ( The Reviewer ). If it is extremely high quality craftsmanship your looking for, this review is for you. If it’s extraordinary performance your looking for This review is for you. If it’s having a barbell last your lifetime and then there after, This review is for you. If you would like to have your barbell shipped and arrive in pristine condition, due to excellent incomparable packaging This review is for you. If you would like unparalleled, without an equal customer service This review is for you. At one time without a doubt, I was you looking for an honest from experience review with complete truth backing it. And after numerous let downs from numerous reviews and numerous barbell manufacturers, I was in dismay, total disbelief in every review I read. So if you are me, this review is for you. After numerous American barbell purchases, I have yet to be let down or disconnected from all of the aforementioned qualities noted above. I am no longer you because American Barbell is now me.

SS precison bar is everything you need

I have owned this bar for about 6 months. I use it probably 5 to 6 times a week. At our gym we have Get Rxd bearing bars and rogue Ohio bars for comparison. I immediately notice the knurling and feel of this bar. All I can is, lifting with this bar is pure joy. The grip is amazing, I dont run back for chalk, it spins super smooth and drops dead. When I drop over head with bumpers it makes no noise. The Get Rxd and Ohio bars sound like train wrecks in comparison. If this bar is in your budget, you surely wont regret it. I also own a different brand bearing bar, and the smoothness of this bars rotation is much preferred than the free spinning of my bearing bar. Overall, I have no regret in purchasing this bar.
