The IB-72-ACE 6' Ultra-Lite Aluminum Technique Bar by Hampton Fitness features the same 51" wide gripping area as a full sized 7' Olympic bar but is greatly reduced in weight so that the trainee can focus 100% on form and not the weight of the bar. At only 15 lbs. the IB-72-ACE lightweight aluminum training bar is a full 30 lbs. lighter than a 7' steel Olympic bar. The 28mm solid aluminum shaft has a medium diamond knurling pattern which begins 6 inches from sleeve collars on each end so knurling does not come in contact with bar catches on a standard sized power rack or Olympic width bench press. 50mm steel weight sleeves have 10.5" of loadable space for technique plates and ride on bronze bushings for a consistently smooth spin. The bar features a polished aluminum shaft and electroplated hard chrome sleeves. Rubber end caps protect the bar and floors from damage when stored vertically. The Ultra-Lite aluminum training barbell is a great teaching tool for school weight rooms, sports performance centers and commercial gyms.
