Size Guide

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.

TOP TIER powerlifting barbell

Please delete my previous feedback, I mistakenly clicked 4-stars, not 5-stars! I've used, owned and considered all premium barbells in the $400-700 range before purchasing the AB Elite SS Powerbar. When comparing specs against other top players of the game (Rogue, Kabuki, Lu Xiao Jun (newcomer), REP SS Bar v2), the AB SS Elite is comparable in every way save for slightly less tensile strength. I've used extensively: Rogue Ohio Power bar, Rogue Ohio Bar, York split sleeve bar and ISF's squat bar. The knurling on the AB SS Elite is bar-none my favorite when it comes to bench/press/squat; especially with chalk. For deadlift, the aggressive knurl from a deadlift bar is still needed. The differentiator is the attention to detail that the AB SS Elite bar possesses where competitors fail. The highlights of this bar are: - Beautiful, mild/fine knurling (yes, I prefer mild knurling vs. callous-ripping volcano or peak knurling) that have immaculate incredibly clean stopping points and cutoffs when the knurl ends - Aesthetically superior machine TIG-welded sleeves - Quiet, composite bushings that spin better than any of my bronze bushing bars (that includes Rogue bushing olympic bars) - tight, ZERO side/side slop from the sleeves These things may seem trivial to the guy who wants to just lift weights, but if you want a refined, premium barbell that offers more than just a piece of steel to work out with, this is the bar to choose.

Great bar

This bar is truly well made - strong, stiff, great finish, excellent feel to it, etc. I absolutely love to bench and squat with this. The one knock on this bar is that the knurling is mild for a power bar and I prefer a much more aggressive one, but that's a matter of personal preference.
