What is it?

The beauty of this bar is definitely in the design detail.  Bars can often look the same, but performance, and longevity can only be obtained through the pursuit of excellence.  The evolution of the barbell is continuous and it's what brought us to here.   We call this the NITRO bar, due to the rapid rate of gains that lifter have had with it.  Its a simple bar, one of our hybrid series, but none the less with uncompromising high quality industrial grade materials and components.

Features include:

  • Black zinc shaft for durability and excellent ‘bar feel’. Zinc has a smooth, and well rounded feel, slightly satin in appearance, and gives the sensation of lifting bare steel. 
  • A peaked diamond knurl pattern provides an excellent gripping surface without the ‘sharpness’ of other grips is more likely to tear the hands in high volume sets
  • Hard chrome sleeves containing with oil impregnated bronze bushings, for smooth spin, and ultra longevity.
  • Maintenance free

What’s its best use?

Hybrid bars cater for a variety of different uses, and training environments.  A jack of all trades, but master of none?  Well that's not 100% true.  Olympic bars should always be "fit for purpose".  In practical terms, the specs should be correct.  For a men's bar 2200mm in length, 28mm shaft, weight of 20kg, with tight tolerances should be demanded. The Black Zinc and Diamond Knurl combination provides a grip that offers superior grip without the tearing of many sharp ‘pure’ weightlifting bars. This is a great all purpose, functional strength, and Olympic, and All-Round lifting bar.

Barbell Warranty Specifics

This is an Olympic Lifting specific barbell.  Maintenance is key for any piece of gym equipment, and importantly for barbells.  Regular maintenance will keep your equipment in prime condition and lasting a lifetime.  Regular oiling between the shaft and sleev with 3 in 1 oil is essential for good rotation

Incorrect usage (misuse) of barbells includes but not limited to:

  • Dropping unevenly onto a non-olympic platform surface, spotting arms, power rack, box etc
  • Dropping the bar with no bumper plates (empty bar)
  • Dropping the bar with weight plates other than bumper plates
  • Dropping the bar in a way that part of the bar makes contact with any surface prior to the bumper plates
  • Storing the bar for a prolonged period of time loaded with weights

Key indicators for barbells that have been used for purposes that are unintended, and void warrannty, include

  • A slight or gradual and consistent bend in the shaft. Incorrect storage such as leaving the barbell loaded with weight for a prolonged period of time will cause this style of damage thus rendering misuse rather than a manufacturing fault
  • A bend which is off centre is the result of trauma caused by uneven dropping of the bar.  Generally accompanied by a a localised surface deviation or colour change on the shaft
