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!

And to back it all up, it comes with a 5 year warranty against bending/breaking.

Great bar for the job

Came to the house in great condition...was worried about the distance traveled and the havoc the transport would do to the packaging...Luckily, only a few staples perished on the end caps, but it hung in there! The bar quality so far has been great for my personal use!..Wish there was more color variety for the shaft, but hey 🤷�‍♂️ for the price, I couldn't say no! Shipping time was also nerve wrecking, but that was an expected consequence for the benefit of free shipping.
