The Powercore 680kg Olympic Bar is a high end olympic bar suitable for Olympic Lifting, Crossfit and Powerlifting, which includes 6x Needle bearings.
Made from only the best High Alloy steel, this bar can take a maximum load of an incredible 680kg, with a tensile strength of 185,000 psi.
This olympic bar comes with dual knurl marks making it suitable for both Olympic Lifting and Powerlifting. The knurl is incredibly comfortable, and spreads right to the sleeves.
The most important things to look out for on a good olympic lifting bar is:
1. Steel Used on the handle. High Alloy is the best steel.
2. What makes up the inside of the sleeve, i.e. Brass Bushing & Needle Bearings.
The above two components is what seperates a good bar from an average or bad bar.
