The Black Ox Training Bar is a solid, versatile barbell that can be used for just about any application. We’ve tested it against the day-to-day abuse of heavy training and it’s proven worthy.
The bar shaft is made from precision ground alloy steel and the strength of the shaft is tested with every shipment of raw material to ensure we have a consistent 180,000 PSI tensile strength. This attention to detail also allows for an excellent whip and long-term performance of our bars. Like all AB Training Bars, this bar features a crisp knurl pattern with just the right amount of tack. In addition, black oxide adds just a bit more texture to the bar shaft than conventional finishes.
The bar sleeves are precision machined and each sleeve is coated with hard chrome for protection against dropping and impact. Sleeves rotate around high strength composite bushings used in aircraft and automotive industries for smooth rotation.
Note: Black oxide is not a conventional finish and requires additional cleaning/maintenance to keep oxidation at bay.
