Our 20kg Olympic Barbell is built with high-quality steel that has been coated in black zinc, similar to cerakote models from other brands. Production of the bar involves a heat treatment process that diffuses zinc into the surface of the barbell creating a case-hardened surface. Unlike cheaper finishes, black zinc is a surface treatment, meaning it won't crack, peel or rust. It provides a durable, fault free protective finish to the barbell.
The bar has been factory load tested for 700lbs (320kg) and features a 28mm shaft with coarse but not overly aggressive knurling. With knurling on the sides and centre of the bar, you’re ready for any kind of barbell compound movement, whether it's squats, presses, deadlifts, cleans, military press etc.
