    What is it?

    The Aluminium Technique bar, often referred to as an "Alumlite Bar" is tool for training correct technique in olympic lifts.  The shaft is manufactured from high grade aluminium, then knurled just the same as our Training and Comp bars - light, flat, narrow, and not too sharp.  It's easy to get it wrong with such an easily corruptable material.  Contrary to popular understanding, aluminium is a very hard material - light, but hard and brittle.  The benefit is in the weight but not its strength.  Aluminium can fracture if repeatedly dropped or flexed at too greater angle.  We advise no more than 10kg on each sleeve, and to be used only for technique work - LOWER CAREFULLY.

    What's its best use?

    It's a highly technical broom stick that allows extra weight to be added so an athlete can train at the correct angles, always.  Commonly used for juniors or novices, the Tech bar gives an athlete the ability to pattern those necessary movements from the start.  Coaches love them because the guesswork is gone from the lessons.  It will allow feedback for both trainer and trainee.

    • 1300mm distance between sleeves (same as full size bars)

    Barbell Warranty Specifics

    This is a technique barbell.  Maintenance is key for any piece of gym equipment, and important for barbells.  Regular maintenance will keep your equipment in prime condition and lasting a lifetime.  Regular oiling between the shaft and sleeve 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 warranty, 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
