American Barbell Cerakote Training Bar

The American Barbell Training Bar is a solid, versatile barbell for just about any application.  We've tested it against the day-to-day demands of heavy training and it's proven to last.

The bar shaft is made from precision ground alloy steel and 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 allows for an excellent whip and long-term performance of our bars.  The shaft is finished in Cerakote and the sleeves in hard chrome for added durability.  These bars have a crisp knurl pattern and offer a super solid grip. Our Training Bars also feature high-strength composite bushings used in aircraft and automotive industries for smooth rotation.

After many years of producing some of the finest Olympic barbells in the world, American Barbell is proud to introduce our latest innovation: Cerakote finished bars. Nothing ever produced rivals the corrosion and abrasion resistance of this finish. Cerakote is used by major firearm manufacturers around the world in some of the most abusive and corrosive environments. Corrosion salt spray testing has shown that this coating lasts as much as 70x longer than chrome and even stainless steel.

American Barbell's design team has been producing innovations in bar technology for more than 18 years, and this is one of our most exciting accomplishments. Every type of bar finish has its story, and we’ve determined that our Cerakote Training Bars are unrivaled. 

*Please note, the 15KG Pink, Purple, Yellow and Blue Cerakote Training Bars feature dual knurl marks and a black end-cap.  The "OB20-ZG-D" also features dual knurl marks.

Good bar - bad service

I love the bar and the sturdiness. I am new to crossfit and had to stop temporarily because of my kneecap replacement. I called customer service times asking about questions about the bar and she acted annoyed when I asked her questions and told me to look online - which I did, I wanted to talk to a live person to get more information. Other than the customer service, this is an awesome bar.

Outstanding product

I bought this training bar after researching many fitness bar company products that looked similar. I spoke to my trainer and he insisted that I could pay more but not do better than this. As always, the coach is right! I got my bar in the cerakote USMC red because, frankly, I wanted it to be visible, and it looks fantastic. I use it in a gym and take it in and out every session... No one would use this one (or permanently 'borrow' it) by mistake. I am just starting to get strong enough in my lifts that I can appreciate the 'whip' that this bar has. One thing I would mention is how quiet it is.. It's solid and moves so nicely when going from the ground to shoulders in a clean. It's great training tool. One minor issue was delivery and communications. Because the warehouse is moving from San Diego to Las Vegas, it took a long time (2+ weeks) to get this bar to me. I thought they'd have one in stock, but I am guessing they commissioned one for me. Thanks, I guess? If you would have told me you were doing that, I would have felt like a king (and I would have believed it). Either way, waiting always sucks so I was super glad I got it. My suggestion? Buy one if you're in the market. It works as advertised, and maybe better.

Awesome bar!

Have been using it for about a month now and am very impressed! No more loud clunky sounding commercial gym barbells! It looks great, Sounds great and has great whip for OLY lifts. Can drop from overhead to platform and barely makes much noise. Just a nice easy thud hitting the matt. Not like it’s going to rattle apart and still solid like day one. Interested to see how it holds up over a year. Good spin and good knurling. Not too aggressive but still great grip.

Finish: Cerakote finish is amazing. Takes to chalk well and looks amazing. Easy to clean. Knurling: Top notch knurling just right in terms of not being too aggressive. Whip: The whip is smooth and complements oly lifts. Style: Barbell looks amazing and seems like it would cosh more than $295.00 Quality: The barbell is finely detailed and came without any imperfections. Great packaging.
