ARCHON Women’s CERAKOTE Needle Bearing Olympic Barbell with Bushings

Stop over-paying for just a name and instead experience the affordable, but superior performance of the ARCHON Fitness line of Olympic Bars, starting with The ARCHON Women’s CERAKOTE Needle Bearing Olympic Barbell with Bushings, “Made for smaller grips, but without sacrificing performance.” This barbell provides the ultimate in performance that you are looking for when performing Olympic and Cross Functional Box Gyms movements, such as The Clean and Jerk, The Push Press, The Front Squat, The Overhead Squat, The Snatch Deadlift, and much more. Our 4 premium needle bearings, combined with 2 bronze bushings, provide a smooth unrestricted spin, especially when heavily loaded. “Experience the whip!” This ARCHON 20kg barbell (45lb) has both Olympic and Powerlifting knurl marks to go along with a stylish black oxide finish. Our knurling has a medium non-abrasive texture but holds chalk GREAT! In addition, there is no center knurling. By having bushings, combined with performance ball bearings, you will produce a smooth controlled whip.

“What is CERAKOTE finish?” Great question!

A CERAKOTE finished barbell provides a protective polymer-ceramic finish giving your Olympic bar superior strength and durability against corrosion and scratching. CERAKOTE coating offers 100 x more corrosion resistance than standard black zinc. Originally CERAKOTE was used on weapons to protect in marine environments, sweating or hot and dusty environments. Keep in mind, metal-to-metal contact will cause barbells to wear overtime, so be sure to maintain your barbells regardless of the coating.

“Why are Needle Bearings superior?” To get your WHIP on!

Rather than a ball bearing, needle bearings are exactly how they sound. They are substantially larger, stronger, and faster, producing a great whip. Needle bearings have a larger contact surface area when the bar is under impact. This will elongate the life of your bar/bearings compared to ball bearings. (On a ball bearing the ball has one point of contact, the very tip of the ball. While on a needle bearing there is a whole line, the length of the needle, that is under contact.) The combination of our bushings with our needle bearings creates for a smother rotation when performing your Olympic movements.

    Short:
    Ordered on April 7th, received today on the 10th. I’m only 1 year into Olympic weightlifting, but it seems to be a great bar for the value with good spin, great whip, and medium knurling. I’ll update in a month.

    Long:
    I currently own the LXJ E1 bar, and used to have an XTE elite comp bar. I’m really glad I sold my XTE bar and took a chance on this. Packaging was super secure (get ready to bust out that screwdriver) and the knurling is about medium I’d say since the E1 bar has been described as having a light cut. I find this great because I didn’t need chalk for my workout, but it may be harsh for crossfit if you’re cycling through multiple reps, comes down to preference. Spin and whip are great – comparable to the E1 bar with the E1 bar spinning a bit more freely. Still, you can tell these are needle bearings. The cerakote finish extends to the sleeves which have Archon imprinted on the each side.

    Suggestion:
    I wish there were more color and sleeve finish combos. Packaging is very secure and I appreciate the lightening fast shipping, but could be more frustration-free.

      Hi Chelsea. We are actually considering more options for colors. The challenge is that color pallets are large, so maybe we will perform an online survey at some point to see what possible wishlists will look like. We appreciate the feed back.

    I recently bought this bar for my daughter so she had a bar at the house. This bar is probably the best bang for your buck you can get and she loves it. It has better whip than the Rogue bars at our gym and the spin is awesome. The knurling on the bar gives the perfect amount of grip. Many other bars can be way to aggressive and tear your hands up.

  • Q

    Does the barbell have center knurling?

    No, it does not. Only knurling in grip areas, both Olympic and Powerlifting.

The ARCHON warranty does not cover abusive dropping of the bar.

You may feel confident that barbell defects are extremely rare as most problems are a result of neglect or abuse.

Barbell Maintenance

Sweat and damp humid environments can cause corrosion of metal. You may have been to a gym where you see those little orange spots on knurling. For some individuals this is no bother, but for others they like that clean polished look to last. This can be accomplished through the following method:

Step – 1
Gather a NYLON Stiff Bristled Brush and 3-in-ONE Brand Multipurpose Oil.

Step – 2
Using your nylon brush, brush away excess chalk and grime.

Step – 3
Take your oil and coat your barbell. Next take your brush and work in the oil into the knurling.

ARCHON barbells are protected by the top coatings in the industry. Rather than the cheaper oxide coatings, “ARCHON only uses BLACK ZINC and CERAKOTE as we want you to enjoy a quality barbell for years to come.”
