A reliable, well rounded Olympic sized barbell for an awesome price.

The cerakote utility barbell is virtually identical to our best-selling utility barbell but finished with cerakote.

What is Cerakote?

Cerakote is a ceramic and polymer coating that creates stunning looks and better durability. The coating is considered the best in the barbell game next to stainless steel.

Our next-generation basic bar, the Cerakote Utility Barbell is designed to be an all-around solution for bench press, squats, deadlifts, and the Olympic lifts (cleans, jerks, and snatches). This barbell is an excellent option for well-rounded garage gym athletes, as well as commercial gyms. To learn more, check out What is a Cerakote Barbell.

As a generalist bar, the Utility Barbell is designed for people who don’t adhere to a particular strength sport and just love an excellent bar. With a 28.5mm diameter, it’s just a tad thicker than an Olympic weightlifting bar (28mm diameter) and a smidge thinner than a powerlifting bar (29mm diameter). Brass bushings means the sleeves and no bearings makes for a smooth but not over-rotation and an ultra-secure snap ring is used to keep it all together. A medium-light knurl won’t chew your hands up when power cleaning, but complemented with knurling in the middle means the bar has a better grip when squatting.

IMPORTANT: For cerakote-coated barbells, added care should be used to avoid abrasive metal-to-metal contact. Tight-fitting metal collars, un-lined landmine attachments, and j-cups, etc — these can potentially cut into or wear off the cerakote finish. Taking these extra precautions will preserve that beautiful rust-resistant finish for years to come!

Just Okay

I Bought this barbell back in April (2022) and it showed up with some rust on the collars. The zinc coating hasn't held up at all and the cerakote gets scratched pretty easily. That being said, the knurling feels great and the bar feels solid. I wouldn't purchase this bar again. I would either go full stainless or bare steel.

Cerakote Utility Bar - Orange

Great bar! Quick delivery. Ordered it on Monday, received it on Friday (and I do not live in the province of either of their locations). Was packaged securely and had no issues. Some slight inconsistencies with the knurling due to the cerakote finish but no big deal. Barbell is what I expected! Love the color pop. Customer service from Bells of Steel was also great as I communicated with them often with questions about the product and stock (orange bar was out of stock for a bit). Definitely would recommend!

Sweet bar

I wish the knurling was a bit more aggressive but this is a super nice bar with smooth spin and great style!!
