The California Bar is our first dual-ring barbell built specifically for functional fitness athletes.  It has the nuances and sought after specifications of a top-quality 28MM weightlifting bar and is also durable enough to withstand daily use in other lifts and programs.

The California Bar is finished with Cerakote for a look, feel, and performance that is unparalleled in the fitness industry today. The bar shaft is made from precision ground alloy steel and 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 machined and each sleeve is coated with hard chrome for protection against dropping and impact. Sleeves rotate around high strength composite bushings used in aircraft and automotive industries for smooth rotation.

After many years of producing some of the finest Olympic barbells in the world, American Barbell is proud to introduce our latest innovation: Cerakote finished bars. Nothing ever produced rivals the corrosion and abrasion resistance of this finish. Cerakote is used by major firearm manufacturers around the world in some of the most abusive and corrosive environments. Corrosion salt spray testing has shown that this coating lasts as much as 70x longer than chrome and even stainless steel.

American Barbell's design team has been producing innovations in bar technology for more than 18 years, and this is one of our most exciting accomplishments. Every type of bar finish has its story, and we’ve determined that our California Bar is unrivaled.

Solid

This bar is solid. The sleeves have far less side to side movement as compared to my Ohio bar. It sounds and feels SOLID when receiving cleans and snatches and the drop sounds different than all other bars I have used. It has become my go to bar for CrossFit. I am interested to see how it stands the test of time. Fine job American Barbell!!

Does what it says.

I don't know much about barbells, but I do recognise a ****** fine piece of machined metal. Knurling is grippy, but not machined to a point, so it's not painful to use with bare hands. Top notch.

I love it!

I'm a beginner in Olympic weightlifting. My only comparison is barbells made for powerlifting and a cheap, terrible barbell I bought at the beginning of the pandemic. The California bar seems to have good whip and spin. I love it. I bought a black one and my only confusion is if all California bars have cerakote. The black one I have feels quite slick when my hands are sweaty. I wish the knurling was a more aggressive, personally. I dont use chalk though because it's messy for my home gym and I know it wouldn't jive with the black color of the barbell very well. Anyway, the price of this barbell is reasonable and the shipping was fast. It came in a sturdy tube without issues!
