The Northern is our premium, Northern branded, men’s Olympic standard size barbell. It weighs 20kg, and is capable of holding up to 700kg in weight. These have been rigorously tested by the manufacturer for their durability, while also testing their weight-bearing capacity to the max.
The eight needle bearings (four per sleeve) with brass bushings allow great whip for Olympic lifting, with the ends designed to grip effectively with collars and prevent slippage of the weights.
The knurling is 1.2mm, with dual ring marks on either end of the bar. The spring steel bar is finished in all chrome, including the sleeves!
We’ve really enjoyed working with our manufacturer on this bar – we know you’ll love it!
