How durable is the bars finish?
The BLK BOX Cur Bar – 9kg features a hardened chrome finish, offering a high level of corrosion resistance and durability while allowing the athlete to feel the knurl. We recommend regular cleaning of the bar using a barbell brush.
Why are bearings important?
Bearings are introduced into barbells to ensure a smooth and/or fast spin when performing complex weightlifting movements. This spin reduces the force exerted on an athlete’s wrists during these movements. When performing bicep curls or similar exercises, bearings are very important to ensure the force is felt through the athletes’ biceps, and not their wrists.
