Vulcan Women’s Elite v4.0 Bearing Bar

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.
  • 25mm Shaft – The 25mm shaft on the Vulcan Women’s Elite v4.0 Bearing Bar is consistent with female Olympic Weightlifting 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 hard chrome
  • Needle Bearings – The bar offers five needle bearings per sleeve, for a total of ten bearings.
  • No Center Knurl – The Vulcan Women’s Elite v4.0 Bearing Bar does not offer a center knurl, which isn’t uncommon for a female bar. This makes for a comfortable bar.
  • Strong Warranty – This bar offers a lifetime warranty against bending, breaking, or seizing.

The Vulcan Women’s Elite v4.0 Bearing Bar has limited feedback available at The male version of this bar, on the other hand, has received very positive feedback from dozens of reviews. Here are some of the things written about the women’s version:


  • “Very high quality construction, great grip and superior spin! Very satisfied with this Vulcan Olympic barbell!”
  • “Great whip out of the box and the spin was a little less than desirable at first but by the fourth or fifth set you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between this bar and a needle bearing bar. Very satisfied with my overall experience considering this was my first purchase from Vulcan.”
