Black Oxide Olympic Powerlifting Bar
200,000 P.S.I. rated and I.P.F. approved.
When your goal is just to sell a product, your Olympic bar design is finished when it’s “good enough”. When your goal is per fection, you’re never finished, never satisfied, even 23 Design cycles later! For example, a tensile strength of 150,000 PSI is “strong enough” for most manufacturers.
We heat treat our Black Oxide bar to 200,000 PSI, because our tests tell us anything weaker will bend. Most think bar stock is “straight enough” if it meets the mill standard of 89/1000 inch over the 7 foot length of the bar. We further straighten our bar to a tolerance of 10/1000 inch, because anything less straight will cause rotational torque during heavy lifting.
Most think a bar is “safe enough” just because it's made of steel. We ultrasonic test and magnetic particle test ever y bar to detect internal and external cracks because they can spread over time and cause the bar to snap.
The International Powerlifting Federation (I.P.F.) counts our Black Oxide Olympic bar among the very few that it approves for International Competition. We appreciate the endorsement, I.P.F., but we’re pressing ahead with Design No. 24 anyway.
