In this equipment feature, elitefts Equipment Sales Director Matt Goodwin pumps up the elitefts Power Bar.

The Power Bar is great for standard lifts, benches, squats, and deadlifts — though Matt notes it’s not so great for CrossFit movements or Olympic lifts. This is mainly due to its gnarly knurling, which is deep and sharp, so it’s not going to be good for the catch. But the Power Bar is perfect for powerlifting.

The specs are as follows (and are also well-displayed on the item's page in the store):

  • 45-pound (20 kilograms) bar
  • 2,000-pound (907 kilograms) weight capacity
  • 86.5 inches (2.1 meters) in total length
  • 1 inch (2.85 centimeters) in diameter
  • 16.375-inch (41.5 centimeters) sleeves with 16.5 inches (41.9 centimeters) of loadable weight space
  • 190,000 PSI minimum
  • Deep, aggressive knurling for superior grip with center knurl and powerlifting marks
  • Bronze bushings
  • Zinc plating to prevent rusting
  • Made in the USA

The elitefts Power Bar easily fits into just about any gym — garage, private, or commercial. It’s no wonder it’s a favorite!
