Our best-selling powerlifting bar with a rust-resistant finish.

The Bells of Steel Onyx Powerlifting Bar takes our world-famous powerlifting bar and upgrades it with a cerakote finish. This will still get you to Muscleville, but now you’ll be travelling in style.
Intended explicitly for powerlifting and to meet IPF specs, it’s designed for people whose three favorite words are squat, bench and deadlift.

DIMENSIONS • 2,200mm / 86.6 inches long with a 29mm diameter. Weighs 20kg / 44lbs.

WARRANTY • Covered under our Limited Lifetime Warranty.

IMPORTANT: For cerakote-coated barbells, added care should be used to avoid abrasive metal-to-metal contact. Tight-fitting collars, weight plates, 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!

Awesome and Great Looking Bar

Awesome bar all round! I love the aggressive knurling it feels really stable doing squats and bench presses with these. Now I don’t have to cake my hands and back in chalk! One downside to the black finish is that the wear and scratches on the sleeves do get a little obvious, but that’s a minor issue. Overall very satisfied with my purchase!

You won't find a better cerakote bar for less than $300

I needed cerakote because I live in South Florida and my home gym is outdoors. I've had it for a month and so far it has been great. My only complaint is that they cerakoted the sleeves so the plates scratch off the cerakote over time. Minor issue. Overall, if you need a rust-resistant bar on a budget, this is the one to get.

Jesus, Thank you for the great review. A cerakote bar is a great option if you want to leave your bar outside. This will wear and tear over time but should still hold up well in these conditions. Enjoy the outdoor gainz! -Belll of Steel

Bar arrived in perfect condition, with the tube intact as well. No oxidation. Perfect in every respect and looks beautiful next to the industrial hex bar and industrial curl bar. Knurling is aggressive but not overly so. Perfect.

Erik, " Perfect in every respect and looks beautiful " This is the best way to describe your dream bar! Enjoy this beauty. -Belll of Steel


Great powerlifting bar

The cerakote is even and smooth. The knurling is consistent across the barbell and is very grippy. The barbell is built very well and I am very happy I purchased it. Quick shipping too!

The smoothness of this bar is awesome, especially when benching. No matter the sport, this bar will get you to your goals. Happy deadlifting! Erica and the B.o.S Crew!

Best powerlifting bar you can buy for the money

This my 3rd barbell, but the first dedicated powerlifting bar I've owned and I love it! It is super grippy, with that top notch volcano knurling that you want so it doesn't tear up your hands, but gives maximum grip. Coop from Garage Gym Reviews says the Bells of Steel naked powerlifting bar is the best bar you can buy for under $300US. This adds a few dollars for the cerakote finish, but is otherwise the same high quality bar. If you want to keep the bar from rusting then the cerakote is definitely the way to go. In hindsight with my gym in the basement and rust not really being an issue, I might have preferred the naked bar just because I don't love having the cerakote finish on the sleeves. But that's such a minor insignificant gripe. I love this bar!
