The Raw Training Bearing Bar is great for those looking for the nuances and feel of a bearing bar at a more affordable price. In choosing this bar, we paid close attention to important specifications to ensure nothing was overlooked.
The bar shaft is made from precision ground raw alloy steel and offers crisp cut knurl for a sure grip. The strength of the shaft is approximately 155,000 PSI tensile strength which is excellent for Olympic lifts.
The bar sleeves are precision machined and each one is coated with hard chrome for protection against dropping. It also contains 5 bearings in each sleeve, and a dust and chalk seal is installed to protect and maintain longer bearing life.

Note: Raw steel is more subject to corrosion (rust) and requires cleaning maintenance from time to time. We find that a simple metal lubricant such as 3-in-1 and a steel wire brush works well.
