The Original 2028 Olympic bar is our best selling bar, and fits the bill perfectly when you're looking for a bar on a budget. It is Olympic standard size and weight (2.2m long and 20kg) and is made of straight steel with 50mm sleeves on the ends, and a 28mm diameter shaft, which is rare for a bar in this price range.

The bar is perfect for static lifts such as Squats, Deadlifts and Presses.

The Black E-Coating (electrophoretic painting) on the barbell is a process using electricity to apply the coating making the finish hard wearing, durable and gives benefits with aiding in corrosion resistance from water and other household chemicals.

"The training bar is awesome, and knurling is much better than I thought it would be. Would recommend it to anyone."
Ian - Ayrshire

"It's superb for such a cheap bar. Good knurling for grip, a clean 20 Kilos on the scale and the sleeves spin fine. Really couldn't recommend a better bar to anyone who didn't want to spend too much on one, whether they were a friend or a gym owner! Thanks."

Item itself is exactly how it is described on the website. It however arrived after a hiccup or two and slightly scratched despite being in its wrapper.

Great quality, lovely finish

Been using the barbell for a few workouts now, really nice to handle, great quality product.

Carport gym purchase

First barbell purchase so I have no great insights but the bar feels heavy, is black, fits the plates and spins freely. Would naively purchase again.

Solid bar at a good price

It's a good bar. I don't move crazy weight on it but it's solid. A bit of whip with isn't a problem. I do pin presses with it so it is repeatedly hitting the safety bars and it handles that no problem.

Black E-Coat Bar

Bought this bar from SS recently & it is excellent. Love the black e-coating. My black Rogue bumpers fit like a glove on it & the knurling is perfect for me so far. It was superbly packaged & was like Fort Knox trying to get it open. Once that happened, it slipped out lovely. The delivery was quick & efficient also. So was customer service when I inquired about my other purchases being split. Overall I would totally recommend SS for a lot of your fitness needs.
