Barbell revoew

Just received the barbell and this is my first week of training. I am very impressed. I have trained on elieko is the past at my former gym and now it’s mainly rogue bars in a CrossFit gym. It is so nice to have a smooth spinning bar and that’s 28mm. It has a nice whip. Feels good in hand, the knurling is nice for snatching and cleaning, great for day after day of training. It won’t leave you hands wrecked. I would have loved a center knurl and while I love the end caps, they look great, they do come loose but that does not effect performance at all. Forvalue there is nothing better. Shipping costs for Canada are fantastic, a quarter of what you would pay for other companies. Very happy with my purchase, will definitely be looking to buy their competition bumpers next. Thanks.

Thomas, thank you for the review! I have trained with this bar myself and absolutely love it for the price compared to some other companies. Keep up the great work and we look forward to the continued support!

Olympic barbell

This is my first real weight lifting bar, all my previous bars have been box store olympic bars, so I am by no means an expert in bars. That being said, I'm happy with this bar in the few workouts that I've had with it so far.

Perfect bar

If there was a perfect form of bar, taking the best of each one I've used in gyms, this would be it. Spins well, knurling is there but painless on my soft office hands (but seriously, there is grip), and it's a good size.I use it with Northern Lights bumper plates.

Bells of Steel

Kyle, thanks for the review! I truly agree with this as I have been training on this same bar and love it.Happy lifting!

What’s new in the 2.0 version?

Upgraded the steel
We upgraded the quality of the steel and the 2.0 bars have a whopping 250kpsi. Going with a better quality steel also decreased the weight tolerance to 1% (how close the bar is to it’s claimed weight of 20kg), as well as the bar straightness accuracy to +-.25mm (no bar is perfectly straight).

Upgraded the bearings
With 5 needle bearings and one stainless steel bushing per sleeve this bar has the ultimate spin.

Machined sleeves
We machined grooves into the sleeves, this helps to prevent plates from slipping off and makes the collars fit tighter.

Why Choose An Olympic Weightlifting Barbell?

To begin with if you you are not doing any olympic lifts, like the clean, snatch, or clean and jerk, you are better off getting the B.o.S. powerlifting bar. If you are actively doing the olympic lifts, then a needle bearing bar is essential for these reason:

The Spin
A good quality Olympic Weightlifting Barbell will spin better than a standard bushing bar. This will prevent the rotational inertia of the plates from being transmitted to the bar, and your grip, which will lead to injuries.

The Bar Whip
The whip is the ability to store the elastic energy of the bar. Athletes can use this flexing of the bar to their advantage during a lift.

The Quality
The B.o.S. Olympic weightlifting bar 2.0 is designed to withstand repeated drops from overhead positions.

The Knurling
Most bars, and even IWF competition standard bars have knurling in the middle of the bar. As the B.o.S. bar is intended for training, this middle knurling has been remove to prevent excess wear and tear on the lifters clean position, helping to prevent injuries.

Hardened chrome finish
A hardened chrome finish strengthens the bar and to provides excellent corrosion resistance compared to a zinc or black oxide finish. The other main benefit being little to no maintenance is required for this finish unlike a zinc or oxide finish which requires regular maintenance.
