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.

Merry Christmas to me!

One of my lifting partners uses this bar and was letting me use it when she wasn’t. I had been considering getting my own bar so when my husband decided to get me one for Christmas she helped him decide on this competition spec one from American BB. It was so well packaged. The knurling is perfect and its spin is soooooo smooth. Feels just like her bar...but this one is mine!!!

Best bar ever

Very fast delivery. The knurling on this bar is the best there is. You have to feel it to appreciate just how good it is. It’s not aggressive but you know the grip won’t let you down. The stainless steels allows a very unique and enjoyable lifting experience. The whip, the sound the bar makes, and just everything about this bar makes you want to keep on using it. I’m so happy with my purchase and I’m definitely getting my wife one soon! Well done American Barbell!

Sweet Barbell

I was looking for a good bearing barbell for the OL. Narrowed it down to this comp. SS OL barbell vs. the rogue euro bar. It was a tough choice since you can't really physically test either one out unless a gym has both. (Eleiko was considered, but way too expensive and people mentioned the knurl was alittle too rough for repetitive work; also their cheaper sports bar seemed to have lower online reviews compared to the AB and rogue). Vulcan barbell was considered, but it is not made in USA, so was out. I have rogue products (rogue barbell, rogue westside power bar etc. and I like their products). however the stainless steel aspect of this bar and the type of bearings used in the AB is what made me choose this bar over the rogue (it is also cheaper than the rogue euro which was a win win., also the rogue training Olympic barbell has a SS version, but that training OL barbell had lower reviews compared to the euro version) The AB bar is well packaged on delivery. it is a beautiful bar. The knurling is nice. not too sharp, but not passive. it really does just grip you back and is comfortable, easy to hold. the spin of the bar is smooth and controlled. it is hard to explain, but it just rotates as it needs too and not just spin for the sake of spinning. it is almost like the bearings are weighted and spin just enough to keep the center of gravity on the bar. there is absolute no play in the sleeves. you drop the bar with weight, there is just a thump of the bumpers. no rattling of the bar at all. I am very happy with my purchase and have no regrets so far. I'm sure the rogue euro bar is nice, but I definitely do not regret my purchase of this comp. SS AB barbell. I think it is well worth the $$$.
