Introducing our new and improved Riot 2.0 Hardened Chrome Riot 2.0 Weightlifting Bar with centre knurling!
With a high quality finish and details, strong chrome coating, strong alloy steel spring steel shaft, this is our best mid range weightlifting bar yet!
The sleeve spin is smooth and steady with 4 needle bearings per sleeve, 8 in total. Its not fast and aggressive like barbells purely for olympic weightlifting, but with sleeves built to withstand daily heavy use in multiple disciplines, from functional training to powerlifting.
Its a beautiful bar, with a lot of attention to detail in the sleeve collar aesthetics, and the quality of the finish on both the shaft and the sleeves. The sleeves have a light knurling for added friction for the plates.

great bar!I mainly do strength training, no weightlifting training whatsoever.
i bought this during the Corona-Crisis, where everything was sold out, this is the bar i found with a center knurling that was "good enough" for powerlifting.
To be honest, i find it perfect, the Knurling can be a little bit harder but that's not what its made for. so its still a 5/5 for me.
Good choiceI have had this bar now for over a year in my frequent home gym use and I love it! Beautiful barbell, down to small details like the sleeve look. Knurling is not so rough which I like for high rep work especially. I'm happy with my choice, can't afford the high end expensive barbells but didnt want to settle with a bar which is too cheap and wouldn't be reliable for many years of hard training. Recommend it!
