The XMark Olympic EZ Curl Bar with Black Manganese Phosphate Shaft
The XMark Olympic EZ Curl Bar has a durable chrome finish with a maintenance free snap ring lock system, longer lasting nylon bushings, and a 400 lb. weight capacity. The 28 mm black manganese phosphate shaft of the XMark Olympic Curl bar is found only in higher quality bars. Of the numerous phosphate coatings available, manganese phosphate coatings are the hardest, while providing unbeatable corrosion and abrasion protection. In comparison, black oxide is simply an iron oxide film while zinc phosphate is a lighter alternative to manganese phosphate. Your XMark Olympic EZ Curl Bar is an investment. Take a couple of minutes to protect your investment by wiping down your bar regularly with a light coat of WD-40 or a 3-in-1 oil.
