The YORK® Black Oxide International Weight Bars are finished with a black Oxide coating & feature hard chrome sleeves. It is a strikingly attractive weight bar. The black oxide finish has an aggressive grip and the steel for the bar is made in the USA with a minimum 100,000 tensile.
It is less flexible, more rigid, and excellent for use when performing static, highly controlled, slow movements such as the squat, chest press, and deadlift. It is also an excellent weight bar for Olympic lift training. The sleeve is secured on the bar using a bar end nut and spring pin. Sleeves are machined to a precise 1.975” diameter to accommodate 2” Olympic Plates.
This is a bare steel bar and will require maintenance to keep it performing at its best. This bar will patina overtime and take on a brown coloration. This color change is a natural part of the aging process. The Broad Street bar should not be stored in a humid environment and should be wiped down after each use. For more in depth cleaning instructions please see below.
1. Brush the bar down with a Nylon Bristle Brush to get everything caked into your bar out.
2. Apply 3-in1 oil in streaks along your knurling. The more rust you notice the more oil you will need.
3. Grab your Nylon Bristle Brush and start scrubbing the area that you just placed the oil. Your goal is to evenly spread the oil to help penetrate any rust spots.
4. Wipe off any excess lubricant.
