The Gold Standard Bar

The Gold Standard Bar is the flashier sibling to the California Bar, featuring a gold zinc finish. We designed this bar for functional fitness athletes, but with a 28MM/25MM shaft, it's a solid choice for Olympic weightlifting as well.  Like all of our barbells in this range, we've put it through its proper paces and it's proven to last.

The bar shaft is made from precision ground alloy steel and the strength of the shaft is tested with every shipment of raw material. This ensures 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.  The shaft is finished in gold zinc and the sleeves in hard chrome -- for added durability.  It also has a crisp knurl pattern with just the right amount of grip for high-repetition training.

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.

Please note: the finish on these bars can range from rose to bright "gold".  The finish is very consistent throughout, and this variety of zinc offers very good corrosion resistance.

Too new to review yet.....

Just received it so too soon to know how good it is. The packaging was noticeably superior to the rogue bar I bought in the past and was pleasantly surprised. Bar looks good and was in perfect shape ( as you’d expect ) when I got it. Time will tell if it can handle my workouts.

My Gold Bar is awesome

The Gold Bar is the first olympic bar I ever owned. I tried many different types in my gym though. I wanted a great entry level bar that would last for many years for my home garage. The knarl on this bar is good, it won't rip up your hand and allows for good grip without chalk. I use this bar for every lift imaginable. I put decent weight on the bar too for a girl. Squating 225lbs, deadlifting 275, and power cleaning 135. It's all handles really good. The bar is solid and I would recommend it to anyone girl or guy.
