The York Barbell Elite USA Olympic Power bar is an excellent choice for powerlifting movements. With a tensile strength of 185,000 psi after heat treating, this 20 KG barbell is manufactured in North America using USA steel.
The bar is manufactured to be more rigid with less whip. The reduction in flexibility makes the bar an excellent choice when performing static, highly controlled, slow movements such as the squat, bench press and deadlift.
Calibrated to Olympic specifications the sleeves are machined to a precise 1.975" diameter to accommodate 2" Olympic Plates. Ferrous bushings ensure a smooth rotation with a bar end nut and spring pin securing the sleeve. The bar is made from elevated temperature drawn high tensile steel for maximum strength and flexibility. Self-lubricating precision bronze bushes allow the sleeves to constantly rotate, without counter-rotation of the weight plates.
