There are plenty of videos circulating the internet where the barbell would either bend or snap in half while training. Low quality steel and no genuine weight load rating is partly responsible for these issues.
Just like with any other product, ATX® decided to go overboard and use a combination of materials that could be considered unnecessary. The 215K PSI Tensile Strength Steel corresponds to EN 10277-5 European Standards, and the titanium coating offers great abrasion resistance.
The other feature worth noting is the smooth titanium sleeve finish. Some barbells do come with grooves that are designed to prevent the weight plates from sliding off. However, it also worked as a grate for the inner ring of your weight plate, making the loading/unloading process slightly less easygoing. So it may also be worth investing in a pair of collars.
Weight Load Capacity
When buying a barbell, it is difficult to differentiate a legitimate powerlifting barbell from a cheap Chinese import. To put it into perspective, the ATX® Golden Powerlifting Barbell is rated for 700kg. German Engineers are using a safe working load system as their gauging system. This means the barbell will easily handle the 700kg and will not show any signs of breaking.
While a lot of underground manufacturers in China are either making their weight load ratings up or are using the barbell’s breaking point to gauge how strong the barbell is, ATX’s weight load ratings are backed up by 5-year Warranty.
Designed for Powerlifting
This is not just a flash barbell. Yes it has the eye catching colour, but this is a fair dinkum powerlifting barbell. Featuring a massive legitimate load rating and high tensile strength this barbell has been built for lifting a lot of weight.
It also features an exceptionally low weight tolerance.. The ATX® Golden Powerlifting Barbell has a weight deviation of just +/- 50 GRAMS.
If you do happen to be amongst powerlifters who don’t quite tolerate the extremely aggressive knurling, you will love this barbell.
It comes with fine RGE 30 – 1.2 mm precision knurling, meaning that the barbell will comfortably stick to your hand without ripping your calluses. It only has IPF markings, so we do not recommend you getting this for Olympic lifts. If you are looking for a quality weight lifting bar – ATX-LH-50-CWL Competition Weight Lifting Bar.
