The Bells of Steel Women’s Barbell 2.0 was designed, as the brand claims, with female weightlifters in mind. This 15-kilogram bar has a 25-millimeter shaft, four needle bearings plus one steel bushing in each sleeve, and a 16.2-inch loadable sleeve length.
One of the most impressive features of this bar is its 240K PSI tensile strength. That is more than enough strength to withstand being dropped from overhead, as weightlifters tend to slam bars. Bells of Steel says the weight capacity of this bar is 800 pounds, which should accommodate most people.
The finish on both the shaft and sleeves is hardened chrome. This is great for protection against rust, though it’s certainly not the most protective coating on the market. However, for a bar priced at under $200, this is a good option.
Lastly, BoS offers a limited lifetime warranty on this bar.
