Made In USA
Hard Chrome - 5' Long



OB-5 Iron Grip 5' Hard Chrome Olympic Bar - The Iron Grip OB-5 is an American Made Olympic Bar built with the highest quality components available for unmatched beauty and longevity. At only 5' long, the OB-5 is a short Olympic bar that is easy to balance and manage while weight training with utility benches or performing free standing barbell exercises such as bicep curls. A medium diamond knurl and 28.6mm diameter bar shaft offers a secure and comfortable grip to both men and women. Precision milled bar sleeves have 9.5" worth of loadable space for weight plates and Nylatron bushings to remove any torque on the wrists that can be caused by wobbling or spinning plates. The Patented six-sided bar collars don't just look unique they keep your unloaded bars from rolling across the floor when being stored under a dumbbell rack or other flat surface. And the satin finish hard chrome plating is virtually indestructible and will not chip, peel or flake unlike decorative chrome used on lower quality Olympic bars.

Iron Grip Olympic Bar Maintenance - After making an investment in an American Made Olympic bar by Iron Grip, most people want to know how to retain the beauty and functionality for many years to come. Iron Grip recommends that no lubrication is used on their Nylatron bushings. In fact, their sleeves are assembled and tightened using a locking compound that forms a permanent seal. Iron Grip Olympic bar sleeves will never need tightened, lubricated or maintained. Keeping the hard chrome finish looking shiny and new is as simple as occasionally wiping them down with a thin layer of protectant, such as WD-40. Other than that, you can always count on your Iron Grip bars to be reliable an in need of little to no maintenance.
