The Bulldog Bar 1.0 Bronze Bushing Barbell - 20KG - Cosmetic Seconds.

Our cosmetic seconds bars are the same great UK Made barbells, but with minor cosmetic defects. The defects do not affect the structural integrity or workings of the bar.

Engineered and manufactured at the Bulldog Factory in Hixon,  Staffordshire. The Bulldog Bar has a 28.00 mm diameter shaft with dual knurling marks for both powerlifting and Olympic lifting. 

An Extensive development period in house of 18 months has enabled us to design a bar knurl that's semi-passive/ aggressive. It is not too aggressive that you will tear out your hands with repetitive lifting and not overly passive that you will loose grip with repeated reps of deadlifts or cleans for example. 

The bar is made from Northern European Steel and has a tensile strength of 250,000 psi. This is the strongest bar on the Market, Fact! It is precision straightened to within 0.1mm end to end to allow smooth rotation of self lubricating phosphor bronze bushings. 

The bar rotation is designed to provide rotation for a general weight lifting bar, it will not spin as fast as one of our bearing bars  but it will spin more than our composite bar. It won't throw you off balance when performing powerlifting type movements. This bar is designed as a workhorse barbell for any serious strength & conditioning facility. 

The shaft is plated using a Black Nickel-Zinc coating and the sleeves are plated with a Silver-Zinc Finish. 

This bar is 100% made in-house, it is not just assembled in the UK: It Is Made Here. By purchasing this bar you are ensuring the growth and maintenance of the UK manufacturing industry and supply chain.  

For Maintenance and Cleaning please see our online videos. 

The bar comes with a lifetime warrantee against bending.

Please Note: Lifetime warranty against bending does not include improper use when the bar has been dropped on safety spotter arms or a box after a failed box squat for example.
