Our Customers Love Us
I think this may be my new favorite barbell. I have been using high-end bars at my affiliate for years, we have a few Luxiaojun and Eleiko XF bars. And although I like every single one of them, the Hero barbell is quickly becoming my favorite. It feels and spins great, the needle bearing a great upgrade over the typical bushing bars we see from other brands in the space.Long Beach, CA
These bars are awesome. The knurl is a good compromise between an aggressive bite and not digging into your hands. The spin is pretty incredible, great for Olympic lifts but the bar itself is stable enough for your traditional big lifts.Tahlequah, OK
This is one superb bar! I can't say enough about the quality. Also, I needed assistance from customer service and they responded next day. They were polite and very helpful. This company stands behind their products! I highly recommend the Hero Olympic bar. Beautiful with quality workmanship!Milanville, PA
The bar is AWESOME. Shipping was faster than what was shown. Comparing to other high end bars, it is the same if not better. Knurling is AWESOME, not too aggressive but it grips well. I Love my Red bar. I plan on getting 2 more. AWESOME.Moreno Valley, CA

Our Olympic sleeves feature a self-lubricating 8 needle bearing system, ensuring unrestricted spin at all loads. This smooth, stable design provides a seamless feel with no play on the bar shaft.
Strength and Whip
STRONG YET FLEXIBLE
Our barbell is built for competition, with a diameter of 28mm (the Men's Olympic standard) for a comfortable grip and excellent whip for Olympic lifts. Its 215k tensile strength and 1500 lb bending rating ensure that it can handle even the heaviest lifts with ease.
Built to Last
Our bars at Hero Barbell Co. are built to last and come with a lifetime warranty on construction and bending. With proper care and usage, these barbells will never become loose or dislodge and will not require any maintenance beyond an occasional wipe down.
OPTIMAL FEEL FOR FUNCTIONAL FITNESS WORKOUTS
Featuring medium-depth knurling, our barbell provides enough grip for your heavy lifts without tearing up your hands during high rep workouts.
Even Heroes Have Questions
The bar matches the IWF standard of 86.61 inches or 220 Centimeters.
Thanks for your question. Our sleeves are an Olympic standard 50MM in diameter - Really any Olympic spec'd weight plate, from Hi-Temp bumpers to urethane competition plates, will work. It depends on how much you are willing to spend... each will hold on to the sleeve as it is grooved, but not noticeably enough to make putting urethane plates painful.
We offer a limited lifetime warranty on the bearings. If you have any issues, please let us know and we will help you resolve the problem ASAP.

Yes. Although our bars a beautiful and durable, they are meant to be used. They should be thought of as work trucks or John Deere tractors. They are here to do a job, not to be put in a glass case and polished with carnauba wax.
