When you take your Olympic lifting to the next level you really should be looking at the RAZE Shadow Series weightlifting bar. The shaft is formed from a special low carbon steel with a tensile strength of 185k psi, meaning it’s super strong yet elastic enough to return true after each lift. During the production process we stress test every shaft, one by one, to make sure they reach our exacting standards.
The shaft is finished in manganese phosphate which has been chosen for its hardness and superior corrosion resistance, and features the RAZE signature dual profile knurling, which has been developed to ensure a consistent grip when lifting, but at the same time not be too aggressive when receiving the bar.
The proprietary designed copper alloy bushing is hard, strong and corrosion resistant, and the lubrication system ensures a smooth rotation, whatever the load. The sleeve itself is made from seamless steel and is finished with a light ribbing to prevent collar slippage.
In our opinion, if you’re looking for an all-round performer with excellent balance between performance and affordability, then you won’t find better than the RAZE Shadow Series weightlifting bar.
