Arguably the sexiest looking barbell on the market, the Fringe Sport Midas’ Revenge Bar has sleeves covered in gold titanium and immaculately designed end caps that feature a king. There is nothing mundane about the Midas’ Revenge bar. It has a 190,000 PSI tensile strength and uses a moderately-aggressive pyramid knurl, which Fringe Sports states is coated in a cerakote finish so it is built to last.Manufacturer: Fringe SportCategories: Barbells, Mens 20kg Barbells

Product Summary & Specs
Frings Sports hit a home run with the new Midas’ Revenge Bar. Not only does this bar look incredibly sleek, but it boasts a moderately-aggressive, pyramid-style knurling and slow controlled spin which, let’s face it, are the benchmarks for a great barbell for powerlifters. With a 190,000 PSI tensile strength, an impressive max weight capacity of 1,500 pounds, and a durable Cerakote finish in matte black, you can hit your heavy lifts without any worry of damaging the bar. Oh, and Fringe Sport offers a lifetime warranty.
The 16.4-inch long and 2-inch diameter gold titanium sleeves are incredibly scuff-resistant. When we dropped the bar from above the head onto a concrete floor without any plates, there was hardly a scratch to be found. The spin on the Midas’ Revenge Bar is bound to feel phenomenal as it is made from four aerospace-grade bronze oil-lite bushings. It is ideal for slower lifts such as squats, bench press and deadlifts, but is also a good choice for CrossFit training.
This one-of-a-kind bar features the ever-reliable bronze bushings (aero-space grade), a 28.5 millimeter shaft, dual knurling and a smooth controlled spin best for slower lifts.
