Good spin, aggressive but not painful for the knurling.

This bar is a great budget bar, and good for novices like myself. There is a lot of spin, and it feels about even for both sleeves. The knurling is perfect in my opinion. Not so rough it cuts up your hand but aggressive enough to really grip the bar. I would have preferred if the bar had a passive knurling in the middle, but it’s a training bar and it’s budget friendly so I can’t complain. I can’t comment on the whip, I don’t lift heavy enough for that to be a factor.

Great value

This is an excellent bar for the money. I can't tell much of a difference between this bar and the much more expensive ones I've used.

High quality barbell

This is a superb barbell. The grip is amazing, perfect grip but not too aggressive that it shreds your hands. Spin is very smooth. The bar has great flex, not too whippy, flexes beautifully.

I absolutely love this bar. Some complain about the spin...personally , I don't find any problem. Comparing the rogue one at my gym...I prefer my BoS 2.0. Some athletes friends of mine tried it and...loved it! The only negative point....my bar arrived in a beat up box....no end caps...dirty and wet. Of course Bells of steel has already proposed a solution to fix that problem. I always had excellent service with them. 70% of my personal gym is made of BoS products.

Hey Patrick, Thanks for the awesome review. We are glad that you are enjoying the bar and thank you for your support. Again, thanks for the wonderful review. Have a great day!

The B.o.S. Olympic Weightlifting Barbell 2.0 is dollar for dollar the best weightlifting bar you can buy.

The B.o.S. bar is designed for Olympic weightlifting, with the perfect amount of spin and durable construction this bar is built to last. CrossFit boxes, weightlifting clubs, home gyms and even military bases across the country have been stocked with the B.o.S. barbell.

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 4 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.
