The FITEK Premium Barbell is the top of the range Olympic barbell, made from the highest quality materials and designed for peak performance. Like all of our Olympic barbells, this bar is manufactured to Olympic specifications, features thick hard chrome plating and high-precision needle bearings, and is built to be flexible, durable, and strong. Even at a glance, the superior quality is immediately noticeable when compared to other barbells, and it is the fine attention to detail that makes the FITEK Premium Barbell one of the best available.
The hard chrome plating used on this barbell is even thicker and stronger than the already highly durable hard chrome we use on all of our barbells, and the shaft features a visibly clear and shiny finish, available in reflective chrome or black. The aesthetic is visually noticeable but most importantly makes the barbell extremely resistant to impact, rust, and wear. Each barbell features 8 high-precision needle bearings manufactured with the utmost care to minimize friction and ensure the smoothest spin possible. This allows the sleeves to rotate effortlessly, reducing stress on your joints during Olympic lifts that require fast movement and gives you maximum stability and control throughout the exercise. We use copper bushings in the sleeves to make them robust enough for the barbell to be dropped from overhead with bumper plates.
Each barbell has a loading capacity of 907.18kg (2000lb) and huge tensile strength of 210,000PSI, making them more than strong enough to handle the heaviest weights a person can lift. The specifications are Olympic standard, with a total weight of 20kg, grip diameter of 28mm, and a total length of 2200mm. Weight plates of varying thicknesses will fit on the 50mm sleeves, allowing you to load up for heavy high-intensity sets, and we use a thin screw thread to provide extra friction, which helps to secure the plates more firmly. The 1.2mm diamond knurl is precision-cut to ensure the best grip without feeling sharp or uncomfortable.
The FITEK Premium Barbell is one of the highest quality barbells on the market. Perfect for Olympic Weightlifting, powerlifting, CrossFit, or bodybuilding, this barbell can handle the most intense workouts and is designed to give you the best performance regardless of your specific goals or training style. We use the best quality materials to create a barbell for serious athletes who want to use the best equipment available.
