7' Black Oxide Olympic Weight Bar – CAP Barbell (OB-85B)

For Use with Olympic Plates with 2" Center Hole
500 lb. Capacity

CAP Barbell OB-85B 7' Black Oxide Olympic Weight Bar - Black oxide is commonly used in numerous industries for corrosion protection and as a decorative finish. When applied to an Olympic weight lifting bar it offers a coating that looks sleek and will not peel off. Additionally, a black oxide coating is thinner than chrome plating which can help enhance the grip in areas that include a diamond knurl. The OB-85B is an affordable Olympic weight lifting bar that is perfect for integrating with strength equipment such as an Olympic bench press or power cage. Use this bar in your garage gym, school weight room or fitness studio for increased strength and lean muscle gains.

The 7' long OB-85B Olympic barbell has a finish consisting of black oxide throughout the entire bar including the gripping area and sleeves. Each weight sleeve spins freely eliminating unnecessary torquing on the users wrists while lifting. The 51.5" gripping area between the bar shoulders is optimal for squatting and benching leaving plenty of room for a wide grip.
