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!

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!!

Great All Around Baw

Up-front, I bought this as part of the 2021 Boxing Day Sale (along with a plate set), so the value was outstanding. No major negatives. Some minor cosmetic rust but Customer Service helped me address it immediately and all good. The bar is super solid, the 28.5mm shaft is noticeably better than my older bare steel 28mm bar (not BoS brand). I do find the grip a bit muted, but I've just pulled a DL PR with it no problem so it's definitely working for me. It's more akin to sandpaper friction than sharp/biting grip. (If you're mainly doing Big 3 maybe the Onyx would be better, that would be my next purchase). I will admit I was an early skeptic of BoS being as good as some of the US brands, but having used both now you can't beat BoS quality for the price. Easily equivalent and a Canadian brand! Win-win!
