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

Our next-generation basic bar, the Multi-Purpose Olympic Barbell is designed to be an all-around solution for bench press, squats, deadlifts, and the Olympic lifts (cleans, jerks, and snatches). It’s an excellent option for well-rounded garage gym athletes, as well as commercial gyms.

As a generalist bar, The Utility Bar 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.

Featuring both Olympic and powerlifting marks, hand positioning is made easy for whatever movement you’re doing that day. Lightly ribbed sleeves help keep your plates from shifting during your workouts.

  • Built to Last
    There’s a lot of claims out there to the weight capacity of a bar, but we back it up with testing. At 1,000lbs capacity and 190psi tensile strength, this bar will stay with you even as you grow and smash through future personal bests.
  • In addition to excellent quality materials, it’s finished with a distinctive black zinc on the shaft and white zinc on the sleeves.

Great bar

Love the bar, exactly what I wanted. Only issue I have is the black zinc coating on the shaft is coming off after 2 uses. I accidentally scraped the bar on the roller j-cup when I was re-racking the bar and it got scratched easily. I thought the zinc coating would be more durable.

Hey Victor, Thank you for the review, the Zinc Coating is pretty durable but rubbing metal against metal will cause some abrasions, Zinc is mainly to protect against rust. Enjoy the gainz! Yours in strength, William & the BOS crew

Utility bar

Fantastic bar. Lifting is so much more enjoyable now that I have a quality bar in my home gym. Squatting ✔️ Benching ✔️ Deadlifts ✔️ Military press ✔️Just enough whip and I prefer that the knurling is pretty mild as I pull hookgrip, so it won’t tear my thumbs apart. Looking forward to smashing many PRs with this bar.
