Our super popular Hybrid Barbells are back with some serious improvements! The new Hybrid Barbell V2 has CNC-machined knurling, 190PSI tensile strength, black hard-chrome coating, and high-quality brass bushes. Unlike many barbells which are hand-knurled, resulting in an inconsistent finish, our Hybrid barbells are knurled using a computer-controlled machining process. This results in the most uniform and consistent knurling possible which means a more comfortable and reliable grip and better performance for you.

'Tensile strength' refers to the maximum amount of tensile (pulling or stretching) stress that a material can withstand before failing or breaking. Translated to the context of barbells, this means that our V2 Hybrid barbells can handle even heavier weights and higher-stress workouts without bending or breaking than our original version. Higher tensile strength means increased durability, increased performance, and more peace-of-mind whether you're purchasing for your home gym or a commercial gym space.

Increased form and function! We've updated the black oxide treated shaft and sleeves to a black hard chrome coating that enhances durability, appearance, and functionality. Hard chrome is known for its durability and resistance to wear as it provides a protective layer that is resistant to wear and corrosion. In turn, this reduces the friction between the bar and the plates, which prolongs the lifespan of the barbell. Hard chrome coatings also increase the surface hardness of the barbell, providing it with resistance to scratches and other forms of wear that can occur during use. And, finally, this coating is excellent for preventing rust — obviously a common issue in our sweaty, high-moisture gym environments!

Brass bushes are the preferred option for mixed-use, or Hybrid, barbells as they're durable, cost-effective, and offer a smooth, medium amount of spin. Brass bushes are also unique in that they have self-lubricating properties meaning they'll provide a smooth, consistent spinning motion critical during functional barbell exercises and high-rep workouts. Bushes help in reducing friction between the sleeve and the bar shaft (again, ensuring a smoother spin). This translates to more controlled lifts, increased performance, and reduced wear and tear on the barbell over time. Brass is also resistant to corrosion, ensures longevity, and requires less maintenance compared to other materials!

Like all of our barbells, these new Hybrid bars are built to full commercial quality and will withstand the constant use demanded of them in commercial spaces. It is standard Olympic sizing at 2200mm long with a 28mm diameter shaft.
