The PR MAX Power bar was designed specifically for power lifting movements. The knurling is medium-sharp with a "grip you back" black manganese phosphate coating which provides all the grip without having to have cheese grater sharp knurling. This is the BEST bar ever for any gym that does not allow chalk... the knurling/coating combo is that good. We have also extended the loadable sleeve length to 18". The extra 1-2 inches of loading space compared to conventional Power Bars really comes in handy if you use bumper plates in conjunction with steel.

Knurling: Medium-sharp with Center Knurling (Excellent grip when combined with the Manganese phosphate coating)
