Stainless Bearing Bar (Comp. Spec.)
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.

I love this bar! It’s beautiful to look at and use. I consider it functional gym art. And it’s built like tank. It will certainly outlast me. Knurling is perfect with a little bit of chalk.
Need not say more! Amazing bar!
This bar is exceptional. Service of AB is very good, Mandy is kind and helpfull. knurl is just perfect. It feels rather soft, then you forget about it during all your workout. Only after you realise how good it is, because it grips very well and it does not scratch your hands or your legs through your clothes (it does with more agressive knurl if technique is not on point). The AB bearing system is another level, incredible. For exemple, compared to the Rogue Pyros bar, the AB sleeves are more tight on the shaft, rotation is smoother, more precision built. But it seems to reveal its true potential when the bar is loaded and in motion. The pull under feels easier : faster and smoother. Very silent when dropped. Overall, I would say I prefer AB over Rogue's bars (wich is a standard), I also tried the training bar in a gym and I prefer it over the Ohio bar (spins better and sleeves less noisy). Only time will prove us if all of those bars will last. Mike
