Stainless Bearing Bar (Comp. Spec.)OB20-SS-NBCB
American Barbell's Stainless 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 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 an 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. Sleeves also contain 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.

Completely satisfied with purchase. Great feel and craftsmanship. Worth the money. Great prompt customer service.
My only complaint is I wish this barbell had stainless steel sleeves. However I can't complain or knock it for the chrome sleeves if that's my only wish. Knurl is awesome for volume work. In addition to this I have the Rogue Pyrros Bar which is very comparable in quality and functionality, however the knurl is a bit aggressive for high volume on the Pyrros bar.
Smooth, accurate and expedient.
Item as described…excellent build quality!
Above anything else
as a WL bar it does it's thing, just like many barbells. However the attention to detail. How the bar is packaged, down to the endcaps and welds is just something else. Just like my Mammoth bar - best quality barbells i have used
I have had my barbell for awhile now and I have to say this barbell is perfection. The feel of the knurling is like no other. Very grippy without tearing up your hands. Just the right amount of bite if you know what I mean. I do not even need chalk. The barbell is beautiful and it came flawless and still remains flawless. My gym is in an old drafty storage buliding and there is zero rust. I do make sure to keep it oiled between sessions. And for anyone trying to decide between American Barbell and Rogue, then 100% American Barbell!! The quality of American Barbells’ craftmanship, pride in their products and customer service is no comparison to the other American made brands out there. I have no regrets spending this much on this superior barbell and look forward to trying more products.
