LUXIAOJUN Weightlifting Competition Bar

The LUXIAOJUN Weightlifting Competition Bar is a very high-end Olympic weightlifting bar with premium features at a premium price.

This bar includes a high tensile strength, a competition-sized collar, ten needle bearings, and several other nice features.

It differs from the less-expensive LUXIAOJUN Weightlifting Training Bar in a few ways. Firstly, it uses a superior grade steel with a stricter tolerance for competition purposes. Secondly, the knurl was specifically designed by Lu Xiaojun on other members of the Chinese National Team. Lastly, it undergoes a much more manual and individualized quality control process.

Features & Highlights

  • Hard Chrome – 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 the LUXIAOJUN Weightlifting Competition Bar is consistent with Olympic weightlifting bars. This diameter generates more whip that's ideal for Oly movements. 
  • IWF Knurl Marks – This bar includes single IWF knurl marks.
  • Specially Designed Knurl – The knurl on this bar was hand-picked and designed by Lu Xiaojun himself along with other Chinese National Team members.
  • Tensile Strength – The 230k PSI tensile strength on the Weightlifting Weightlifting Bar puts it in the upper-echelon of Oly bars.
  • Grooved Sleeves – The grooved sleeves will tend to keep the plates on the bar better than a smooth sleeve when not using collars, but they will also be louder. The sleeves on this bar are also finished in hard chrome
  • Anti-bounce Collar Design – The bar includes a thin collar design for additional loadable sleeve length with a rubber ring to prevent bounce when unloaded.
  • Needle Bearings – The bar offers five needle bearings per sleeve, for a total of ten bearings.
  • Center Knurl – The LUXIAOJUN Weightlifting Competition Bar does offer a center knurl, which is common for a competition spec'd barbell. This will provide some additional tactile feel on squat variations.
  • Unique ID and Lu Signature – Each bar comes with its own unique ID as well as the signature of Lu Xiaojun embossed on the shaft.
