Apollo & Athena Bar


Train like a Greek God with the GBRX Apollo and Athena Needle Bearing Barbells. Created from our signature Motor City Metal to be the toughest on the market, they are designed to reduce friction to a minimum by using a thin round piece of steel fitted with 4 needles in the shaft for the sleeve to ride on, it provides a completely free spin, making this bar ideal for any athlete doing Olympic lifts and perfect for quick turnovers on snatches and cleans. Dual knurling marks are standard for an Olympic lifting bar, with a strong and reliable grip that won’t tear through your hands. Sleek, black zinc finish gives this gear a unique and stylish look.
