Performance Training BarOB15-CH-IWF
Made from precision ground alloy steel with a hard chrome coating, this barbell can handle any workout you throw at it. 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 excellent whip and long-term performance of our bars.
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 rotate around high strength composite bushings used in aircraft and automotive industries for smooth rotation.

You can really feel the difference by spending a couple extra hundred dollars. On top of that, the shipping was superb. I’ve never had to unscrew a package’s container before, which just goes to show how much American Barbell cares that you get your barbell as fresh and secure as possible. Customer service was pretty quick and pleasant too in getting back to me on when my item would be shipped amidst all the orders during the covid pandemic. I went from your average $100 barbell that was said to have a max limit of 300 pounds, to this, and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.
Quite the upgrade.
This training bar is great. It doesnt have too much spin, the whip is incredible and the knurling is good. Its q softer knurl- pyrros bar users' hands will thank them. I was training on some 28mm crosstraining (ISF, Rogue Chan and Titan blues city bars) This is a Great bar and worth every penny. It is on an entire other level compared to the bars I was using.
Perfect for training
This barbell has everything I need. I’m a 40 yo female with 166 kg total. I would say I’m an above average lifter but not an elite level and this barbell has it all for my type of training at a more affordable price. I train 4-5 days a week 1-2 hours sessions with this barbell and the knurling doesn’t tear my hands apart. It feels fast and has decent spin. I’m very happy with this choice.
So far so good, nice and smooth operation, solid, quality barbell.
The bar is excellent and I use it regularly while the gym is closed. The bar was not sufficiently packaged and arrived with a blemish to the chrome on one end where the tube end cap gave way in transit. Tougher end caps are needed, otherwise the packing seemed sufficient.
