In this category you will find all the men's Olympic barbells produced by Lacertosus®. All of them comply with the IWF & IPF standards. But what is, in practice, an Olympic barbell, and how does it distinguish it from others? Well, very briefly, when you hear about Olympic barbells in the gym, we refer in fact to all the weight lifting bars whose loading cylinders - the sleeves in which the discs or bumpers are loaded - have a thickness of 50 mm , thus being perfectly compatible with all Olympic weights, with a 51 mm diameter hole. More specifically, the men's Olympic barbell itself weighs 20 kilograms, has a length of 220 centimeters and a diameter at the level of the grip of 28 millimeters - 29 millimeters. These are the measures of the men's Olympic barbell, distinct for example from those of the barbell of the same category intended for women: in that case, in fact, there are slightly shorter and lighter bars. But all this certainly does not mean that all men's Olympic barbells are the same! Absolutely not: for each discipline and for every need there are in fact different precautions. The classic Olympic barbell, for example, has no central knurl, and therefore no knurling in the center of the bar, to avoid scratching your body during lifting. On the contrary, a Powerlifting barbell will be equipped with central knurling, in order to have the maximum possible control in the execution of the hardest squats. The various degrees of knurling, then, also change according to the discipline: those who have to face the typical repetitions of Cross Training and WeightLifting, for example, will certainly look for a barbell with a medium knurling.
Quality reigns here: we want all athletes who need an Olympic barbell to have the best possible tool delivered. In some cases we have spared no expense, simply making the best of the barbells that man can conceive, real jewels for the most demanding athletes: maximum capacity of 680 kilograms, 10 bearings (including 6 roller and 4 ball) , special alloy steel. Extremely silent, reliable, calibrated to the gram, unsurpassed: this is how our best barbells are. But we have also thought of those looking for the highest possible quality with a reduced budget, creating training barbells, with rotating sleeves and without any plastic component.
