The Primal Strength Ceramic-Coated Dual “It’s Heavy” 8-Needle Olympic Bar is a UK first. We have utilised the same, damage-proofing technology as with military-grade weaponry (rifles, machine guns etc) to apply a highly durable, ceramic coat (with a matte finish) for our best-selling “It’s Heavy” Olympic Bar to ensure it stands the test of time. The bar has been engineered for multi-purpose use within heavy Power-lifting, Olympic-lifting and Cross Fit applications.
When designing the “Its Heavy” Olympic Bar, we used 8-needle bearings for an extremely smooth, reduced-friction, quality, spin whilst ensuring a market-leading level of durability for heavy duty lifting. The bar is tested to a minimum of 190,000 lbs per square inch level and we machine-test each bar repeatedly under stresses of up to and including 1000kg. The military-grade ceramic coating also presents a best in class finish for Olympic bars and simply will not chip off under the heaviest use. The only possible damage or scratching will come from metal or poor-quality J-Hooks/Safety Spotters.
The “It’s Heavy” Olympic Bar has no centre knurl, utilising dual knurling for Power and Olympic lifting. The bar has a normal flex/whip and will always spring back perfectly. The phosphorised black sleeves have light knurling to grip the plates and are 50mm-diameter with laser-etched, Primal Strength engraving. The heavy-duty bar is warrantied for being dropped when used with quality bumper plates.
The “It’s Heavy” Olympic Bar is one of 10 Core Primal Strength bars and the range has been designed for use in any sports facility, commercial gym, PT studio or home. It has a unique, ceramic-coated finish in several colours, weighs exactly 20kg (aside from the ‘Linda’ Pink Ceramic-Coated Bar which weighs 15kg) and is suitable with all Olympic-size, 50mm discs.
We recommend using the “It’s Heavy” Olympic Bar with our Primal Strength Urethane Bumpers, Coloured Rubber Bumpers or our Hi-Temp Grain Bumpers.
