Fully machined and assembled at the Rogue factory in Columbus, Ohio, the T-15LB Technique Bar features a 28MM bare aluminum shaft with dual Powerlifting and Olympic knurl marks. With this design, we’ve also spaced the collars at the same distance as an IWF standard competition bar, giving athletes the ability to maintain proper grip position as they progress from a light bar to a Men’s or Women’s weightlifting bar.
A Tech Bar is most effective when it’s designed to prepare you for what’s next. Whether you’re a young athlete using your first barbell, an amateur looking to safely practice your form, or an experienced lifter working your way back from an injury, the lightweight but quality-built T-15LB Technique Bar creates the perfect bridge for your progression to standard Oly and powerlifting bars.
We have included two distinct sets of knurl marks, each set to International Weightlifting Federation standards for Olympic and Powerlifitng, respectively. Our exclusive knurling pattern is precision machined for a firm but non-abrasive feel. The use of standardized knurl marks and collar spacing is vital to simulating the feel of a competition bar, so you’ll only need to adjust to the weight increase later on.
The T-15LB Tech Bar is now fully machined and assembled in our Ohio plant, and includes an upgraded fit and finish with a more reliable spin and superior competition knurling. The 28MM bare aluminum shaft has a tensile strength of 42,000 PSI, and is paired with bright-zinc coated sleeves, offering a loadable length of 8.00″. Durable plastic bushings help maintain the smooth spin while keeping the bar light and manageable.
The sleeves of the T-15LB Tech Bar are fully compatible with most standard size bumper plates, with a max load capacity topping out at 45LB or 20KG. This bar is NOT built for for loads in excess of that amount, and athletes are also advised against dropping the bar when loaded.
