Hard Chrome - 7' Long


OB-7 Iron Grip 7' Industrial Chrome Olympic Weightlifting Bar - The Iron Grip OB-7 is an exceptionally high quality Olympic bar made from heat-treated, turned, ground and polished steel right here in the USA. This is an all purpose Olympic bar that is well suited for any bench press, squat rack or power cage. A medium diamond knurling pattern provides a comfortable and secure gripping area for all the major pressing and pulling exercises and also includes a center knurl for added traction and control when performing squats. A 28.8mm bar diameter allows even smaller hands to get a firm grasp especially when going heavy. Nylatron bushings ensure that the hard chrome weight plate sleeves always spin feely with very little friction and never need lubricated or maintained during the life of the bar. The six-sided built-in bar collars are another innovative Olympic bar feature designed by Iron Grip. This six sided design not only sets Iron Grip bars apart from all others aesthetically, but it also keeps an unloaded bar from rolling across the floor which is one of the reasons the US Navy uses Iron Grip Olympic bars as their go-to bar for their ships.

Iron Grip Olympic Bar Care Guide - How do you properly care for and maintain an Iron Grip Olympic bar to keep it looking its best and functioning correctly for many years? Thanks to American manufacturing ingenuity, the Iron Grip OB-7 Weightlifting Bar needs little if any maintenance. For the most part, when you purchase an Iron Grip bar you are purchasing a maintenance free bar. The Nylatron bushings will never need lubricated and the sleeve assembly will never need tightened. To keep the industrial chrome finish looking its best, Iron Grip does recommend occasionally wiping down your bar with a very light coating of protectant, such as WD-40.

How far apart are the marking on the knurling?
Jeff B on Aug 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The single ring hash marks on the Iron Grip OB-7 Olympic Weightlifting Bar are 27 inches apart.
So this isn't a power bar ? Its weight lifting bar ?and does have whip?
Chava on Jun 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The Iron Grip OB-7 Olympic Bar does have center knurl so it can definitely be used for powerlifting and can be classified as a "power bar". It has a lower whip factor. If you are looking for a higher whip bar more suitable for Olympic weightlifting we would suggest the Iron Grip OB-20KG 7' IWF Specification 20KG Needle Bearing Olympic Bar.
