If you are searching for your new favorite barbell, the search is over. The Next Generation Bar is the new Standard. Manufactured in the USA, Alabama to be exact. Using top-end CNC automation, Wright machines all of these parts with a ±002 tolerance. Our Barbells have to pass a 22-point inspection to be worthy of the Wright Name. Using only the finest material, paired with the “Wright” Process we are able to manufacture these barbells and still offer our customers great prices. Join the Rebellion; you will be so glad you did.
It starts with the Steel. If you don’t start with the best American Steel you won’t end with the best Barbell. We use a high-grade 28mm steel and a proprietary heat-treating process to get out steel shafts to 200,000 psi tensile strength. This is the perfect tensile because we know that you can heat treat something too much and while it may have tensile, it won’t have durability. And the durability is what you want in a barbell. We choose to work with only US Steel Mills. The Next Gen Wright Bar also has thick-walled steel sleeves. We precision machine these sleeves so our bar can offer the most possible loadable area. We source the most heavy-duty bearings so that you can experience the most incredible spin. We test these bearings to 20,000 drops to ensure you will get the maximum life from your bar.
From Checking in the Steel to placing it in the final package, we control the process. We follow our process to make sure that as each part passes its detailed grueling inspection. From the knurling to the smoothness of each machined edge we take pride in making the best barbell we possibly can. When this is all finished you have one of the only true USA-made bars that meet IWF Specifications. We use top of the line CNC equipment to machine our steel to the ±.002 tolerance. That is half the thickness of a piece of paper.
The Wright Bar Next Generation will come standard with the Black Cerakote Shaft but will have an option on the Sleeves of Clear or Black Zinc. We have found that if applied correctly, the Cerakote can have a far longer lasting coating than zinc and can stand up to the oils and acids that a barbell is exposed to. This means a better-looking bar, longer. We do need to mention that if you plan to use your bar with metal J-Hooks you will scratch the Cerakote coating just like you would any coating. We recommend you use UHMW/Plastic covered J-Hooks.
We still use the Zinc coating on our sleeves because we feel that it holds up aesthetically better to the sliding of metal plates and bumpers on and off the sleeves.
Why Not? Everyone wants to use the Bearing Bar in the Gym. It’s like the favorite Pool Stick at the Pool Hall. If we can find a way to bring that type of bar to you or your gym for a good price, shouldn’t we do it? With our design, we have given the user the ability to have a high-end bar with an even higher-end spin. With our design, we also have a claim to the easiest bar to maintenance and clean.
Did you say I could rebuild this bar?
Yes, we did. With our new design, we have made this bar the easiest bar on the market to perform maintenance on. With our design, you can remove the bearings and easily clean and maintain them to ensure you have a great spinning barbell for many years to come. You can also pick up the rebuild maintenance kit for this bar and if you ever want, you can just replace the bearings. Designed with the consumer in mind.
