York Elite Competition Olympic Weightlifting Bar

York Barbell


44 lb

This is THE best olympic weightlifting bar that York makes, meant for intermediate and advanced weightlifters. Needle bearings, a true 28mm diameter, 20kg weight, a softly knurled hard chrome finish, the whole deal. This bar is for you if you're looking for a high quality WL bar and are not satisfied with cheaper alternatives.

Made with North American steel! This bar has York's signature split sleeve design, which ensures that the sleeve will not loosen. The needle bearings provide a sensitive and smooth sleeve rotation. This bar is on the level of the Werksan and Eleiko bars with their ability to whip while remaining permanently straight over time.

The center knurling is soft and won't scratch your neck badly during cleans.

Like all of York's bars, this bar has smooth sleeves without the grooves that are put on other brands of bars.
