Eleiko XF Bar
The Eleiko XF Bar is a high-end multipurpose bar made by one of the premiere barbell manufacturers.

Here are some further details about the bar:
Features & Highlights
- Hard Chrome Finish – Chrome is a cost-efficient plating that does a good-but-not-great job at fighting off oxidation. You won’t get the same feel as you would with a non-plated finish like bare steel, stainless steel, etc… but you get a nice blend of feel and rust resistance without the larger price tag.
- 28mm Shaft – The 28mm shaft on this bar will lean more towards Olympic weightlifting movements since it offers the same diameter as a true Oly bar. Most multipurpose bars offer a 28.5mm shaft, which falls in the middle of a power bar and an Olympic weightlifting bar.
- Medium Knurl – This bar offers a medium knurl, making it a nice option for a variety of lifts and for high-rep training.
- No Center Knurl – The Eleiko XF Bar does not include a center knurl, which again makes this a comfortable bar that is ideally suited for high rep training.
- Tensile Strength – This bar offers a 215,000 PSI tensile strength, which stacks up well against the competition.
- Dustproof Seal – This bar includes a dustproof seal in the sleeve that prevents dust and other debris from entering the mechanics of the bar, ensuring optimal performance.
- Smooth Sleeves – The smooth sleeves will generally create less noise when loading/unloading plates compared to a grooved sleeve.
- Swedish Made – This bar is made in Sweden using some of the finest steel in the industry.
