The American Barbell Elite Power Bar has a shaft made from precision grade 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 ensures reliable long-term performance day in and day out.  Our selected steel grade for our Power Bars provides very little flex, making it ideal for a variety of max load lifts.  

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. 

 Our 20KG model has a shaft diameter of 29MM. This is an ideal choice for those looking for a powerful precision barbell that will last through the ages.

Best home gym purchase ever.

I have to say, they nailed it with this bar - it’s smooth enough that I can lift all day without my hands complaining, but still insanely grippy. Throw in the fact that it’s just beautifully put together and barely bends/whips even with 500lbs loaded on it and you have the perfect home gym (or even commercial gym) bar I’ve ever run across. I was a little nervous about ordering this bar due to American Barbell’s reputation for a finer knurl. I don’t enjoy getting my hands chewed up by a super aggressive knurl, but there’s not much worse than lifting with a slippery bar.

She's a beaut

Talk about a work of art, this barbell is incredible. If you are on the fence, just get it. One and done.

Mild knurl. But max Grip!

When I got this, I was underwhelmed. The knurl was mild and I don’t even have calloused hands. The sleeves look stunning. The shaft looked like any other stainless bar. After I actually started using the bar, I realized how awesome it really is. The grip is very strong and comfortable for every kind of lift. I’m always focused on the workout and the soreness after. Ok never thinking about my hands. It just works and it rocks. Coated bars are overrated. They look cooler at first and then look worse later. Sharp knurl is overrated. You can get the same grip without sharpness. It was always about the grip anyway. And this won’t ever scratch your shins or back or anything either. I think reviews and influencers are over emphasizing sharpness inadvertently. You can get huge just the same either way. Buy what you want.

Best All Purpose Strength Training bar

In my opinion this is the best all purpose strength training bar it has very grippy knurl that won’t get painful on high rep sets unlike most of its competitors.

Beautiful bar, perfect shipping

I received my Elite Power Bar this afternoon and opened it up like a kid on Christmas morning. First, I just want to say the shipping is amazing - it's really well packaged and protected. I was able to open everything in about 10-15 minutes, and the bar was perfect inside. Once open, this bar is gorgeous. Legitimately beautiful. The knurling feels terrific, not sharp but extremely grippy, like coarse sandpaper. The sleeves are beautiful, and these welds are industrial art. I agonized over choosing a bar and it's an amazing feeling to open it up and immediately know that I made the right choice. A+. (Also the spring collars are great.) If you're on the fence like I was, pull the trigger, you won't regret it.
