REP was founded in Colorado, and this barbell represents their signature, flagship bar. This 20kg bar is a premium, mixed-use barbell that comes in a variety of different Cerakote color options (black, blue, green, red, or white) with Duracoat™ sleeves. Duracoat™ is a chemical process that hardens the outside of the steel and changes it to a smooth black finish. It’s also available in a hard chrome finish (shaft and sleeves). Both finish options add high levels of corrosion resistance.
This barbell is truly an all-purpose barbell, great for cross-training/HIIT-style workouts, powerlifting, and Olympic weightlifting. It features medium-depth, volcano-style knurling to provide good grip support without tearing up your hands on high-rep workouts. The 20kg Colorado Bar was made with a 28.5mm diameter shaft and smooth sleeves for easy loading and unloading of weight. Composite bushings provide a smooth and consistent rotation with added durability. The bushings also create a dampening effect that reduces noise if you drop the barbell. The Colorado Bar is finished with premium, metal endcaps with unique designs and laser-etched branding on the inner sleeves. As a multi-purpose bar, the Colorado Bar has dual knurl markings (IPF and IWF) to help you pinpoint where to place your hands when you set up.
Cerakote (with various color options) and hard chrome both add high levels of corrosion resistance. Plus, hard chrome adds an even more elevated performance and aesthetic than standard chrome.
Composite bushings lead to consistent and smooth rotation with added durability, as well as a dampening effect to reduce noise when the barbell is dropped.
All Cerakote bars feature Duracoat™ sleeves, which provide high levels of corrosion and wear resistance.
Medium-depth, volcano knurling provides good grip without tearing up your hands during high-rep workouts.
