The bar shaft is made from precision 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 an amazing 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. Sleeves rotate around high strength composite bushings used in aircraft and automotive industries for smooth rotation.
These bars are a limited supply and will not be brought back once they are gone. Please note: this is a closeout item. These bars are new and are top-quality, but there may be very slight cosmetic blemishes as a result of processing and handling. All bars are guaranteed to perform and are covered under warranty for manufacturing defects. All sales are final.
Bought this bar last year around Black Friday time as a closeout item. I absolutely love this bar and have bought 3 additional bars from American Barbell since my initial investment. I'm surprised that they haven't brought this bar back, but considering they have the SS Training Bar, it may have replaced this one. The grip on the bar is outstanding, as is all of their bars. I highly recommend this company!
Love this barbell. Grip is out of this world, will stay shiny forever!
I research the crap out of my equipment before making any purchases and came across this bar in the process. I wanted to wait a bit before writing this review so that I could see how the bar really works. This bar is an amazing purchase for someone looking for an affordable bar that has an excellent finish and good enough sleeve rotation to get the job done. I'd buy this bar again if I had too.
The bar is excellent. Great knurl and smooth spin.
Communication and response time was super fast as was the processing of my order. The packaging was great and protected my new SS bar perfectly. Very pleased all the way around.
