Pros & Cons
What we like ...
- Stainless steel shaft
- Knurling is not overly aggressive
- Very little flex to the barbell
- Tensile strength of 190,000 PSI
What needs improvement ...
- It is pricey, but according to reviews it’s worth the money.
American Barbell’s Elite Power Bar is a 20 KG barbell, which can be used for powerlifting or Olympic lifting. The shaft has a diameter of 29 millimeters and is made out of stainless steel, keeping it corrosion-resistant and easy to clean without damaging the surface of the barbell. The strength of the shaft is tested with raw material to ensure a consistent tensile strength of 190,000 PSI.
This particular barbell does have a center knurling. Based on some reviews, it’s great for high rep sets and is one of the best all-purpose barbells out there.
