The Bells of Steel Olympic Weightlifting Barbell 2.0 is a high-quality, lower-cost option for those who like to snatch, clean, and jerk. Four needle bearings and snap rings mean a good spin for the explosive lifts. Plus, the bar features an impressive 240,000 PSI tensile strength—that’s one of the highest you’ll see on an Olympic weightlifting bar.
Like most Olympic weightlifting bars, there is no center knurl on this 20-kilogram barbell. There are, however, dual markings in the knurling should you choose to use the bar for power lifts.
Both the sleeve and the shaft of the 2.0 feature a hardened chrome finish. This will give the bar some protection against the elements, but it’s certainly not the toughest coating on the market.
The BoS Olympic Weightlifting Barbell 2.0 comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
