See our recommendations on the best barbell if you're only going to buy one.

This bar uses cerakote, a thin ceramic coating that's been used by gun manufacturers for years and is known for is incredible hardness and durability, but even more so its corrosion resistance. Nothing gets through it. Researchers have blasted the stuff with salt spray and it holds up better than even stainless steel. Cerakote has caught on lately as a popular coating for new bars.

You get a choice of cerakote color, and the sleeves are either bright zinc or black cerakote. All colors are the same price.

Solid Bar Fitness, a Kansas company owned by Brad and Lynn Roepke, has been making olympic bars for over 30 years. Until 2018 they were operating exclusively as a distributor for other companies who would re-brand their bars. Now we are able to sell them directly from Solid Bar Fitness to you.
