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."

"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."
