The rotating sleeves allow the user to get under the bar quickly during Olympic weightlifting movements such as the snatch and clean & jerk without having to change hand position, which can lead to injury. The Olympic sleeves with 16.25” of loadable sleeve length feature a slightly etched design with fine grooves to minimize plate shifting during lifts.
This 28 mm barbell has standard knurling with dual knurl-free guide marks to ensure a strong, firm grip on the bar during heavy lifts.

With a tensile strength of 150,000 PSI and a recommended maximum weight load of 750 lb, the Valor Fitness OB-86-750B Men's Olympic Bar is the perfect addition to your home, light-commercial, or box gym.
