LOOKING FOR A SUITABLE BAR FOR ACCESSORY WORK?
Our 1.5m straight bar is a great alternative to a full length Olympic barbell. It weighs less than a standard barbell at approximately 5kg making it perfect for those who want to be able to carry out movements such as barbell curls and skullcrushers only with a lighter bar. As it’s also shorter than a standard barbell, it’ll also take up less space.
Our short Olympic Straight Bar features the following:
Knurled handles for an improved grip
Zinc plated weight horns
Plastic end caps
1.5m (5ft) from end to end
Just because it’s lighter than an Olympic barbell it doesn’t make it any less heavy duty. It’s made from solid high tensile steel making it super strong. The knurled hand positions give a guide to where you should grip the bar and offer an improved grip, ideal if you are lifting heavy.
We opt for zinc plating our weight horns as opposed to powder coating as this ensures they will not chip, flake and become susceptible to rusting.
It’s really frustrating when you load plates onto a bar and they wobble against bare welds. Not only does it make the bar feel unstable it can also damage your plates. That’s why we’ve chosen to add plastic end caps at the base of each weight horn. This ensures that the plates remain flat and stable and as they are solid plastic there is no risk that you’ll damage or mark your plates.
