All Barbells

Here at UKSF, we take huge pride in being able to provide our customers with state-of-the-art equipment while helping others achieve their functional fitness goals. We have been able to adapt our Olympic barbells over the years to provide our customers with the best quality gear which they deserve.

Barbells are a must-have in every gym, despite the client’s fitness goals, they allow individuals to tackle more than one muscle group when performing the desired movement, which is great for full body activation. They are easy to store, they are perfect for spotting if you need a partner and they allow stable leverage, as usually both arms are being used when using barbells.

With this in mind, how do you know which barbells are best to use? With the market having an abundance of barbells available, how do you decide which bar to go for? They’re basically the same, aren’t they?

In fact, bars come in all kinds of shapes, quality levels and sizes. Picking the optimal bar ensures you get the most out of your training, as well as opting for the strongest and user-friendly equipment. UK Supreme Fitness supply an array of different bars, no matter what the fitness goal is.


Cronos Bars

Cronos Barbells

Available in 20kg, 15kg and 10kg. Our Cronos bars are one of our most popular products available and are perfect for Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting and high repetition workouts. With tensile strengths of 210,000 and 190,000 PSI, our Cronos bars are extremely robust and can withstand a great deal of loading force, whilst offering the optimal amount of flex and whip. Featuring the staple black zinc and hard chrome finish, this barbell is by far the sleekest bar from our range.

The Cronos bars also come with interchangeable UKSF bands situated at the collars, which are customizable if the bands fit the collar dimensions. They have a diameter of 28mm (male bar) and 25mm for the 15kg (female bar) and 10kg (training bar) The knurling is fine but not aggressive and there is no central knurling. The bar sleeve is a combination of brass bushings to prolong the spin and protect its 8 alloy steel needle bearings.

These bars have been tried and tested for over 6 years. They are the perfect addition to any weightlifting club or functional fitness facility.


Pegasus Bars

pegasus Bar

Also available in 20kg and 15kg, the Pegasus bars are the affordable option for those just getting into the swing of bar movement. With a hard chrome finishing, along the shaft and collar- this bar is well protected from rusting and chipping. In addition, the Pegasus bar features a combination of brushing and needle bearing which allows a free spinning sleeve and provides great stability. With this combined with the steel, the Pegasus offers fantastic whip but is robust enough to allow for Olympic and powerlifting movements.

Both Pegasus and Cronos bars offer knurling which provides outstanding grip for when making those huge movements and are in good contention with some of the world’s most prestigious brands.

If it is quality and value for money which you look for when deciding on gym equipment, look no further than UKSF. We understand how expensive great quality gym equipment can be, and we offer the most competitive prices on our products.
