FITEK POWERLIFTING BARBELL IPF SPECS
FINE 1.5mm Knurling, great grip without ripping up the hands
The FITEK Powerlifting Barbell is designed explicitly for powerlifting. The shaft is rigid and strong to be able to accommodate heavyweights, making it ideal for squats, presses and deadlifts. Just like our Olympic barbells, this bar is made from high-quality steel and is coated with a hard chrome protective surface to increase the wear-resistance and durability. As the sleeves do not need to spin, they are manufactured with robust bronze bushings that keep movement to a minimum and feature a snap ring design to secure the sleeves to the bar. This allows you to remain stable throughout the entirety of every lift.
Powerlifting barbells need to be rigid, which is why the shaft is made with a thick grip diameter of 29mm. The sleeves are 50mm in diameter and 445mm in length, to allow ample space for weight plates of varying thicknesses. The bar can be loaded up to a maximum of 907.18kg (2000lb) and has a huge tensile strength of 210,000PSI, making it strong enough to handle the heaviest deadlifts.
This barbell features fine 1.5mm fine knurling to prevent the bar from slipping and provide superior grip. The centre knurl is included to stop the bar from sliding down your back during heavy squats.
Some brands use cheaper Allen bolts to hold the sleeves to the bar. These can easily be bent or broken or loosen over time. Instead, we use a substantially higher quality snap ring design to secure the sleeves, which means there is no chance of anything coming loose. Unlike Olympic barbells that are made with bearings to allow the sleeves to spin freely, the FITEK Powerlifting Barbell features stable and secure sleeves manufactured with bronze bushings, instead made to be as tough as possible.
When it comes to powerlifting, you want a rigid barbell that can handle heavyweight and high volume training. The FITEK Powerlifting Barbell is designed to give you the best performance and allow you to reach your lifting goals.
