The Castro Bar

-platinum The Castro Bar Platinum from Rogue Fitness is a great choice for athletes and weightlifters who demand superior performance and outstanding durability from their workout bars. This competition-grade, powerlifting bar features a 28.5 mm shaft made from the highest grade of steel available. This steel is then tested for tensile strength and straightness to ensure the bar is incredibly durable and won’t bend or flex during heavy lifts. The boat-shaped shaft has a unique gunmetal finish and includes one set of durable bushing sleeves that are internally grooved to eliminate bar whip and keep the bar spinning smoothly. It also has knurling on the center of the shaft and at the ends, allowing a secure grip and more control over the bar during lifts. The Castro Bar Platinum is a full-sized bar with a total weight of 20kg, and a total length of 86.75”. It has been tested and certified to withstand up to 1,425 lbs. of weight, making it an excellent choice for powerlifters and any other strongman athletes who demand the best equipment for their workouts. This bar is great for athletes and home gym owners, with a superior build quality and a premium look and feel. Whether you’re lifting for competition or just for your own health and fitness, the Castro Bar Platinum from Rogue Fitness is an ideal choice to get the most out of your workout.
