The American Barbell Cerakote Mammoth Power Bar, formerly the Super Power Bar, has a shaft made from super stiff precision grade stainless steel. The Mammoth Power bar is finished with Savage Stainless Cerakote for a look, feel, and performance that is unparalleled in the fitness industry today. The strength of the shaft is tested with every shipment of raw material and is then heat treated to ensure we have a consistent 210,000 PSI tensile strength. This ensures reliable long-term performance day in and day out. Our selected steel grade for our Mammoth Power Bar provides very little flex, making it ideal for a variety of max load lifts.
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 Mammoth Power Bar is unrivaled. This is an ideal choice for those looking for a powerful precision barbell that will last through the ages.
We advise that a bar with any finish stores only on Urethane coated wall racks and used only on J hooks or bar catches designed with bar protection in mind. American Barbell Bars are a work of art, and we hate to see them damaged in any way.

This bar has very little flex. It spins at the perfect speed for the deadlift, squat, and bench (and other non-olympic lifts). The knurling does not tear up your hands, but provides plenty of grip, kinda a "sticky" feel like fine sandpaper. The cerakote coating over stainless steel promises to last a long time. Overall, a great barbell, I am happy that I own one.
Received a beautiful bar except for the clearly visible blemish (about 6 mm in diameter) in the cerakote coating in one of the knurled areas of the bar. The spot shows coloring similar to dark rust or dried blood yet is clearly part of the coating, as I tried to remove it with acetone with zero success. That it is so clearly visible against the light grey cerakote make me wonder whether anyone from Quality Assurance bothered to look at the bar before shipping. Perhaps the bar was on sale due to this cosmetic issue, however, that should have been stated in the online sales form.
Haven’t used it that long as I’ve just received it. Initial impression is fantastic! Arrived in perfect, truly flawless condition, and I’m a stickler for detail. The cerakote was perfectly applied and there was not one blemish on the entire bar. The knurling is as described; i.e. not overly aggressive but sufficient. I opted for the cerakote because I wanted to minimize corrosion and maintenance. I use the plastic lined J hooks as extra protection for the finish. After a long, careful search I’m glad I settled on this bar. Well done AB!
The bar is absolutely flawless. Truly amazing craftsmanship.
