20KG American Barbell Stainless Precision Training Bar OB20-SS-IWF
$ 495.00

This is virtually the same barbell as our competition spec. Stainless Bearing Bar just with a bushing system.

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 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.

This is an ideal choice for those looking for a multi-purpose precision barbell that will last through the ages.

How this bar compares

Garage Gyms (great and fun resource) rated the knurling of the SS bearing bar as a 10 of 10 and noted that -of the all the bars reviewed (which includes numerous bars well north of $1000) this is only one of two to receive a 10 of 10 rating. Well, with the exception of center knurling, the shaft and knurling on this bar is identical. If you are looking for a very reasonably priced bar with unsurpassed “grip” -you need look no further. I hold Rogue in the highest regard -in fact, I purchased five Rogue bars (over the years) before discovering AB. I originally purchased the California bar and, as time went by, I found myself using this bar most all of the time. As to why, well my gym is in my house -not a garage or a basement- and quiet is all for the good! Also -the California bar simply has a great “just feels tight and right” quality. As mentioned in other reviews, dropping a Rogue bar is a noisy affair -dropping a California Bar results in a satisfying “whoomp” -no rattle -no clank (the same can definitly be said about this SS bar). I absolutely love the grip on the California bar. That said, the grip on this bar is “amazing 2.0”! When it comes to OLY lifts, the spin/rotation on this SS bar is absolutely spot on. I cannot comment on how this bar performs under competitive OLY loads -but as a power oriented lifter who regularly includes OLY lifts in my routine, this is simply the best bar out there in this price range -and the fact that this bar is drop dead gorgeous -well that doesn’t hurt either. Finally, thanks to all the thoughtful reviews from fellow AB purchasers -if you are considering a bar at this price point, reading reviews from purchasers of other quality bars is definitely the way to go!

Solid beautiful bar

Stainless steel looks great, definitely better quality than other brands, I love the smooth sleeves and the knurling roughness is fair for me (not too rough) I do wish the side knurling was about a half inch longer on both ends, but that's just a personal preference. (i'm short and my grip is a tad more narrow than others on deadlifts lol)

Awesome Bar

So far this bar has been great all around from squats to olympic lifts. Definitely keeping me from going too crazy in quarantine.

Excellent bar, even better customer service

If you're looking for a multipurpose bar with a lean towards Olympic lifting, look no further than the SS Precision bar. It's good for power lifts as well but the bar will whip more than a 29mm power bar. The composite bushings provide a spin that is reliable and smooth under load. Time will tell how durable composite bushings are when compared to bronze bushings but the lifetime warranty should put you at ease. The sleeves are an industrial hard chrome with beautiful welds and a very, very lightly ribbed surface so no zip sound when unloading or loading plates. Fit and finish is superb with minimal vertical and lateral play in the sleeves. All of this means that when you drop the bar it's a lot quieter than the breaking glass sound you get from some other brands. The knurl is a medium fine volcano pattern and when combined with the stainless steel it makes for a surprisingly good grip that doesn't mess up your hands. I don't think I can go back to a plated bar after this one. Finally, my order did arrive with some issues but the customer service was above and beyond excellent and secured me as a loyal customer.
