Gladiator MX Barbell

OVERVIEW

With needle-bearing sleeves, IWF knurl markings, and ribbed sleeves, this barbell is ideal for Olympic weightlifting. Additionally, the medium-depth knurling with no center knurl makes the Gladiator MX perfect for higher-rep cross-training/HIIT-style workouts. Five needle bearings per sleeve allow for a smooth spin and turnover during lifts. The Gladiator MX comes in 20kg (44.1lbs) with a rust-resistant, low-maintenance hard chrome coating that doesn’t chip easily. It comes in a 28mm diameter for an easy grip.

The Gladiator MX features medium-depth knurling to help with grip on lifts, but not so much that it rips up your hands during higher-rep workouts. The barbell has no center knurl, great for those high reps, too. International Weightlifting Federation standard knurl markings provide visuals for even hand placement on the barbell. Ribbing on the sleeves helps keep plates in place. The barbell is tough, rated for 1,500lbs, so bending the barbell won’t be an issue.

FAQS

  • Are your barbells compatible with other branded plates?

    REP’s barbells are designed to work with any standard plates featuring 2” diameter center holes.

  • What is the purpose of knurl markings on a barbell?

    There are two major standards for where to put knurl markings on a barbell: designed by the International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) and the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF). The knurl markings themselves allow for athletes to set up properly for the lift they are attempting and provide a visual for even hand placement on the barbell.

  • What is the difference between bushing and bearing sleeves?

    Both bushing and bearing sleeves produce sufficient sleeve rotation, but ball or needle bearings allow for a faster, smoother, quieter spin and have a more reliable turnover for maximum loads, which is a better fit for Olympic-style lifts. By comparison, a bushing sleeve is more efficient for powerlifting movements, which are slower and more strength focused. The Gladiator MX’s needle bearing sleeve design is optimal for Olympic lifts, such as the snatch and clean and jerk.

  • Which barbell is best suited for me?

    This will depend on the type of training you do and your training goals. The Gladiator MX Barbell was designed for Olympic weightlifting and mixed-use. If you are not sure how to decide on a barbell, email us at info@repfitness.com and one of our customer service representatives will help match you and your training style with a barbell.

  • How do I take care of my barbell?

    You’ll want to remove dirt or chalk from the knurling with a brush and oil on a microfiber cloth. You also should occasionally remove the external sleeve to oil and fully clean it. Check out the REP Barbell Maintenance Video in the Video Gallery section above for more information.

  • Does the Gladiator MX Barbell have a warranty?

    Yes, it comes with a 5-year warranty.
