The Original 2028 Olympic Bar is one of our best-selling barbells. Built to Olympic standards with a length of 2.2m and a weight of 20kg, the bar features 50mm sleeves and a straight steel shaft with a diameter of 28mm.

The Black E-Coating on the barbell is applied using an electrophoretic painting process, which uses electricity to bond the coating to the steel. This ensures that the finish is hard-wearing, durable, and corrosion-resistant.

What a difference

Ive had and used a fair few barbells in my time. I wasn't expecting anything too special based on the price, but I was so wrong!

A lovely bar! Im a fan of strength shop kit!

Great product and delivery

Very happy with my purchase and speed of delivery, great quality at a reasonable price. Getting weights delivered isn’t always easy, but this was quick and the delivery man was very helpful.


Item itself is exactly how it is described on the website. It however arrived after a hiccup or two and slightly scratched despite being in its wrapper.
