Barbells. Limited Lifetime Warranty*/**

Any weightlifting bar can be bent or damaged by severe abuse or improper use. Improper use includes, but is not limited to: bars being dropped while unloaded; barbells being dropped on hard, non-absorbing surfaces or items such as benches, racks, or asphalt; bars left loaded or stored on a rack for an extended period; or moisture entering the sleeve through improper cleaning or harsh environments. Carefully inspect your bar for signs of damage that could impact safe performance and ensure sleeves are rotating as designed. If damage is detected, or you are unsure, please contact an Eleiko representative. Sleeve damage is generally linked to improper use or care, but if detected early can often be serviced or repaired. 


  • Bars shall only be dropped when loaded with discs, do not drop an unloaded bar. 
  • Barbells (bars loaded with discs) should only be dropped on platforms or surfaces designed for lifting such as an IWF or IPF Weightlifting Platform ( or similar specifications), , or a minimum 20 mm rubber flooring, with a minimum of 35% force reduction.
  • Always use collars on each end of the bar to prevent disc movement during lifts. 
  • Never use the bar if it shows signs of damage, especially if the sleeves do not rotate properly as this may cause injury. 


  • Clean bars in a horizontal position. Apply 3-in-1 Oil to a lint free cloth, then wipe down your bar taking care to avoid the area where the sleeve and bar shaft come together. 
  • Do not allow bars to get wet or allow cleaning fluid to seep into the area where the sleeve and shaft come together. Moisture in the sleeve can impact bar performance and safety. 
  • Brush the knurling/bar with the nylon brush after each use to remove chalk or dirt. 
  • Never use a steel brush on a chromed / treated surface. 
  • For disinfection, we recommend alcohol-free, bleach-free, and o-phenylphenol (OPP) ammonia free wipes. 


  • Store bars empty in either the horizontal or upright position. 
  • Do not store bars with weights loaded as this could cause the bar to bend.
  • Store bars in an indoor climate that is dry, clean, and optimally at a temperate between 18-27 degrees Celsius.

** Warranty against bending does not cover any bar which has been damaged due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user. Negligent or faulty use includes abusive dropping of the bar (i.e., dropping the bar on a box, bench, spotter arms or pins in a power rack, excessive dropping with insufficient or damaged bumpers, any dropping with iron plates, excessive dropping on concrete or similar surfaces, and similar usage). Any specific issues regarding a Industrial Athletic product with which a customer is not satisfied will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. We have found that most problems with barbells are related to abusive, use rather than manufacturing or materials, issues.
