Strength & Whip
A true competition quality barbell at 28mm diameter for an easy grip, and at 215k tensile strength and a 1500 lb rating, bending this bar will not be an issue. Cheaper bars use lesser-grade steel and add thickness to the bar. 28mm and the right type of steel creates the optimal balance between a weightlifting bar and a powerlifting bar which makes it comfortable for most athletes making it a great mixed-use barbell for Functional Fitness, Olympic Lifting, and Powerlifting.
Olympic sleeves feature a self-lubricating 8 needle bearings system typically only available on bars priced significantly higher by competitors like Rogue. The rotation on the Legend Bar is very clean and smooth making it ideal for Olympic movements. Sleeves are machine finished to a precise 1.975-inch diameter accommodating for 2” diameter Olympic plates. This Olympic barbell has very tight tolerances and you will immediately notice there is very little movement between the sleeve and shaft.
With a medium depth knurling, it has plenty of knurl for your heavy lifts, but not a shark tooth knurl that rips up your hands for higher rep workouts. The ends of the shaft feature 16-inch wide areas of medium diamond textured knurling. Ensuring excellent grip and contact through heavy movements. There is no center knurling to help protect your neck and chest from abrasions.
Cerakote is a ceramic and polymer coating that creates stunning looks and better durability. Cerakote is one of the most rust resistance and lowest maintenance of any coating available. Either way you are sure to have a barbell that will continue to look new with very little maintenance.
Hero Barbell Co. provides a lifetime warranty on construction and bending on all of our bars. With proper care and use, this bar will never become loose or dislodge and never requires maintenance other than an occasional wiping down with WD-40 oil to prevent corrosion.
Absolutely impressed with this bar. Super high attention to detail. Very fair price for a very nice bar. Thank you HERO, very well doneLos Angeles, CA
This is the BEST barbell I have ever used! The colors pop and don’t wear. It’s tight and rivals rogue or any other high end equipment.Charlotte, NC
The Hero Barbell Co. was started by three good friends who believe that fitness, competition, and camaraderie are the keys to a long and healthy life. We like to work out, surf, snowboard, play golf, and coach our kids, but also appreciate a well-smoked rib, a hoppy beer, and a fine bourbon.
While designing our home gyms, we became frustrated by barbell options. We didn’t want to pay a premium for a sub-standard bar with a big corporate logo on it, so we decided to design our own.
Meet the Legend Bar! A barbell we designed for ourselves that doesn’t compromise on performance or style. We hope you appreciate the attention to detail, the fine-tuned spin of the collars, the barbell’s unique styling, and precision cut knurling. We will confidently put our barbells to the test against any barbell in the world.
We are sure you are eager to throw some weight around, so get after it! Like we always say, work hard and play harder.
