Setting the STANDARD!
Our STANDARD bar is an entry level bar, and is a great choice for anyone starting out in weight training or powerlifting. The knurling is configured like our regular Power Bar, but is not quite as "cheese grater" aggressive. Black zinc plating from end to end.
At $229.95 plus $40 for shipping anywhere in Canada, it's a great deal for a starter bar.
- 2220 mm end to end

- 195,000 psi tensile strength
- all black zinc coating
- medium knurl.
Love it! Two of my friends have these bars and they love them. It almost feels like 28.5mm, the knurling is great and the whip is very nice for oly lifting too!
Knurling is VERY aggressive, and the coating on the olympic attachments does where off very quick.
this bar has been great. Knurling is grippy but not too aggressive. It has held up really well to training multiple days a week. The only issue I had is that the knurling breaks are not as advertised. The knurling breaks are wider than 810mm and as a result it took a lot of getting used to for powerlifting specific training. I had to use a measuring tape to figure out max bench width etc.
The manufacturers mistakenly sent us a batch of bars with Olympic lifters lines on them, 10cm wider than Powerlifting lines, we gave out about 20 bars before someone pointed it out. A new batch is in stock now, with the correct lines.
