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.

Love my upgrade all the way bar!!!

Everything about this bar is quality. I noticed out of the box, the quality welds on the collars, the very grippy but not aggressive knurling, the stainless steel feel, the center knurling smooth enough not to be abrasive on cleans but hashed just enough for just a little grip on back racks. Everything about this bar is quality. To be honest, I got this bar because barbells everywhere else are out of stock. If you can afford this barbell, and your focus is on Oly lifts, and this bar is still available, then just get this bar. For Crossfit workouts and power lifting, I'll keep on using my 3 year old ****** [R] 2.0 bar. Yup, even though it is supposedly an F8-R on their scale, the knurling has worn with the black e-coat faded where I grip the bar, the composite bushing is coming out in little pieces, the overhead bumper plate drops sound louder, and there is practically no spin on the collar now. Bear in mind, I used it only about 3 times a week in my garage. I think the thing that matters is not some proprietary steel strengthening tech, but the quality of the construction. The [R] 2.0 has been a good bar and will continue to be a good power lifting and a many messy reps metcon bar. But I'm glad I switched over to the American Barbell SS Comp Bar for my upgrade bar. I was thinking of getting a crash cushion before. But paired with my [Vulc] bumper plates, the dead drop, single bounce a few inches off of my 3/4" horse stall mat w/ two 3/4" plywood underneath platform seems to be 1/3 to 1/4 as loud as my rattling [R] 2.0 Bar. This is perhaps an even better indicator of the build quality than visual & tactile first impressions. Here's a picture of the center knurling so you can see how smooth it is. Just get it.

Great barbell!

Perfect amount of spin, the knurling isn’t too aggressive, and feels great on my shoulders in the front rack

It was available and excellent.

I had been waiting for an Olympic weight lifting, bearing bar to become available. I had my heart set on one from another major producer of US manufactured barbells, but they were just not becoming available. I decided to go with this barbell. It was a little more expensive than what I had been looking at, but decided to go with it. Am I happy I did. This bar is of excellent quality. The tolerances are precise - it feels solid. The knurling and feel of the stainless steel is top notch. I now have a bar that I can happily use for my cleans and snatches - I think this bar is of higher quality based on the power bars I own from the other company (which still does not have Olympic weight lifting bars available. I am a happy customer and recommend American Barbell. Shipping was super fast at a reasonable cost.
