Read more below.

Features & Highlights

  • Cerakote Finish – Cerakote is a high-quality finish option that has been made popular on barbells due to its outstanding resistance to rust and corrosion. Originally created to be used on firearms, Cerakote has been shown to withstand abuse and harsh environments. If you train in a humid environment like a garage gym, Cerakote is a great option. The potential downside to Cerakote is that it’s applied on top of the shaft, which has a tendency to remove some of the raw feel of a bare steel, stainless steel, etc.. shaft.
  • Multiple Color Options – The bar is offered in multiple colors, including black, red, and bronze.
  • 28.5mm Shaft – The 28.5mm shaft on the Titan Blues City Olympic Bar is comfortable in the hands and provides a nice balance between rigid and whippy, making it ideal for a variety of lifts.
  • 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. This bar comes in either a black Cerakote finish or a bright zinc finish depending on which bar you buy.
  • No Center Knurl – The Blues City Bar does not offer a center knurl, which is useful on high rep training sessions and/or in cases where a lifter wants a more comfortable bar.
  • American Made – This bar is made in America.

What They’re Saying at titan.fitness

The Titan Blues City Olympic Bar receives very positive feedback from users. With an average rating of 5/5 at titan.fitness, here are some of the things people have said:


  • “I really like this bar. The cerakote is nice, I got this to protect the bar from rust. It looks and feels good. The knurling feels just right!”
  • “Tossed up between rogue and Titan for a long time. Ended up going with Titan due to shipping included. The bar is fantastic. Beautiful coating with no scratches, packaging was excellent when it shipped. Glad I made the investment rather than being a cheapskate with a crappy chrome bar.”
  • “This bar is hands-down one of the best bars I have used. It feels right in the hands and across the back. It has a good grip, the knurling may cause you to build more callouses along with muscle.”
  • “Bar color was a little lighter than pictured, but functionally, it is a good bar. Brushings spin smoothly. Knurling is more aggressive than other bars I have, but that doesn’t bother me. Overall, it is a good bar.”


  • “My only thought is that it is a fairly expensive bar and I’m having a difficult time piecing together as to why it is priced this way.”
