The PRx Performance Dakota Power Bar is an affordable option for those looking to move some weight. It is priced under $300 and features a black zinc finish. This is mid-range, as far as corrosion-resistance goes. The sleeves of the Dakota bar are bright zinc.
The tensile strength of this bar is 190K PSI. That isn’t the strongest we see in power bars, but it is still a great rating for most people. We like the aggressive diamond knurl, center knurl, and IPF knurling markings on this bar.
It’s worth calling out that the shaft diameter is a little thin at 28.5 millimeters. While you see that on multipurpose bars, power bars are typically a little thicker.
