Bulldog Gear Olympic WL Bar - 20KG Bearing Barbell
The first British made Bearing Barbell.
Designed, engineered and manufactured from Northern European steel at the Bulldog Gear factory, in the United Kingdom.
The defining feature is the 10 precision needle roller bearings that provide the optimum spin - perfect for Olympic Lifting.
We know the importance of the whip and knurl, therefore the shaft on this barbell has the signature Bulldog Gear grip. The perfect blend of passive-aggressive knurl meaning that grip will not be sacrificed nor will the hands tear from repetitive lifting.
The Bulldog Gear Bearing Bar weighs 20kg and is 28mm in diameter. Each bar is bright zinc plated giving a bright, silver finish.
They are thermal heat treated to produce a tensile strength of 200,000 PSI. This prevents the bar from bending when lifting heavier weights and increases durability over time.
The bearings have been precision straightened within 0.1mm, end to end, to create a smooth rotation of every bearing. Each sleeve and collar has been friction welded to guarantee the maximum strength possible.
To ensure our high manufacturing standards, we implement strict parameters that utilise micro-hardness tests and scans across all batches of barbells.
We recommend a 40mm platform for this barbell.
Warranty against bending does not cover any bar which has been damaged due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user. Negligent or faulty use includes abusive dropping of the bar (i.e., dropping the bar on a box, bench, spotter arms or pins in a power rack, excessive dropping with insufficient or damaged bumpers, or excessive dropping with iron plates, and similar usage). Any specific issues regarding a Bulldog Gear product with which a customer is not satisfied will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. 30mm thick rubber matting must be used and the bar must not be stored with weights loaded on a rack. Indoor use only, Normal wear and tear does not fall under warranty. Warranty only valid for the original purchaser.
