Vulcan 20kg V3.0 Elite Training 28mm Olympic Barbell
Our Price: $369.99

Chrome Molybdenum steel - (often referred to in the industry as Chrome Moly). Chrome Moly is typically used for a wide variety of applications such as to build race car frames, oil rigs, nuclear power plant structures. The molybdenum provides increased tensile strength and whilst the chromium facilitates excellent corrosion resistance and oxidation. Chrome Moly is also known for having excellent reflexive qualities (whip). High whip, high tensile strength, and high anti-corrosive properties make the Vulcan Elite Training Bar a high performing, highly durable Olympic Bar.

Specifications: Meets IWF Specifications. 28mm Shaft at Knurling areas. There are unfortunately many bars claiming 28mm, but measure 28.5mm on the knurling area (a 28.5mm bar). 221K tensile Strength Verified. This bar is the highest tensile strength bar available in the USA. The V3.0 Elite Training bar has some improvements over the first two versions.

  • Finish. The V3.0 is plated with Thin Dense Chrome. A process of Chrome plating similar to hard chrome but does not build up on edges like Hard Chrome. It is a matte finish which is very "grippy" and gives a raw steel feel. The Dense Chrome is more durable than standard show chrome and bright zinc finishes. Sleeves are grooved with flat wide fins.
  • Knurling. The knurling on the Elite bar has evolved and matured with the manufacturing process over time. Since 2011, we have received much feedback on the knurling from our customers, high level weightlifters and their coaches, as well as general fitness trainers, and strength & conditioning coaches. The knurling is what we would consider moderately aggressive based on comparison with our line of multiple Olympic Bars. How the knurling feels to each person is a matter of use, experience, and preference of course. The center knurling is fairly shallow and won't chafe the collar bone area form our experience. The knurling on the V3.0 extends all the way to the laser engraved Boss of the sleeve.
  • Rotation. The rotation on the V3.o is very clean and smooth. This Olympic bar has very tight tolerances and you will immediately notice there is very little to absolute zero movement between the sleeve and shaft. The V3.0 uses a highly advanced multiple self lubricated bushing system.
  • Whip. The molybdenum steel is hard to beat in regards to reflexive properties. Be advised that even with relatively light weights the bar can flex to the extent that the plates may slide off if collars are not used. This bar is recommended for Olympic Weightlifting. Please view our bar comparison guide for other bar recommendations.

Vulcan Women's Professional Olympic Barbell
Our Price: $579.99

Women's Olympic Bearing Bar, weighs 15kg, 25mm shaft, hard chrome plated, 8 needle bearings, 195,000 PSI tensile strength. Meets IWF Specs for dimensions and weight tolerances. The Vulcan Women's Bearing bar has the aggressive knurling that you would expect on a full competition bar. These particular bars actually have a 4" very passive center knurling, consistent with the men's professional bar. The rotation of the sleeves is super smooth. Snap ring construction. Warrantied from bending or sleeves departing. Lifetime warranty.

Specifications:

  • Manufactured in accordance with IWF Specs
  • Hard Chrome Plating: also known as industrial chrome or engineered chrome, It is very hard, measuring between 65 to 69 HRC (Rockwell Scale) whereas zinc plating is typically 40 to 50 HRC and wears off quickly on the sleeves. Hard chrome tends to be thicker than the typical bright chrome treatment normally used. Note: Although stronger than typical chrome treatment, metal to metal contact with sharp edges can chip or damage hard chrome or any other finish. Metal change plates that do not have beveled internal edges will cause damage possibly. V-Lock All Rubber Change Plates are the best way to eliminate any possibility of damage from change plates.
  • 195,000 PSI confirmed by metallurgical lab analysis
  • 8 German needle bearings - we have found that bars that have 10 bearings do not spin any more and have a great deal of "play" in the sleeve that will increase as the bar becomes worn, creating the rattling sound that is common with bars manufactured with greater tolerances than the Vulcan bearing bars
  • World class knurling consistent with IWF Certified bars
  • Great bar for Olympic Weightlifting, athletic training, or CrossFit®
Vulcan Men's Professional Olympic Barbell
Our Price: $599.99

Hard Chrome Plated, - Hard chrome plating, Industrial chromium plating, or engineered chrome, is used to reduce friction, add wear resistance, or increase corrosion resistance. It is very hard, measuring between 66 to 70 HRC. Hard chrome tends to be thicker than the decorative treatment, typically ranging from 0.075 to 0.25 millimetres (0.0030 to 0.0098 in). Hard Chrome plating is the most chip resistant of chrome platings and a fairly expensive process. Hard chrome can last a lifetime as it is far thicker and harder than traditional chrome plating or bright zinc plating. Although stronger than standard chrome plating, it can be chipped with metal to metal contact with sharp edges as with any plating. Metal change plates that do not have beveled internal edges are not recommended. V-Lock All Rubber Change plates are the only way to completely eliminate the possibility of chrome chipping from change plate damage.
