Built for female weightlifters, the Bells of Steel Women’s Barbell is easier to hold and spins beautifully for graceful PRs.
TRUSTED SINCE 2010
The B.o.S. Women’s Barbell was specifically designed for the female athlete.
The Women’s Barbell is slightly thinner, lighter, and shorter than our (men’s) Olympic Weightlifting Barbell — as to align closely with IWF standards.
Designed for Olympic weightlifting with the perfect amount of spin and ultra-durable construction, this bar is built to last. Weightlifting clubs, home gyms, commercial gyms, and military bases across the country have put their trust in this bar to fuel their PRs.
IMPORTANT: While primarily intended for Olympic weightlifting, the Bells of Steel Women’s Barbell 2.0 has dual knurl marking (weightlifting and powerlifting) but does not have a center knurl. These two key features mean that it does not meet IWF specs — instead, it’s designed for those who want an affordable training bar to perform the Olympic lifts.
Why I'll love this bar
Why Choose An Olympic Weightlifting Barbell?
To begin with if you you are not doing any olympic lifts, like the clean, snatch, or clean and jerk, you are better off getting the B.o.S. powerlifting bar. If you are actively doing the olympic lifts, then a needle bearing bar is essential for these reason:
|Loadable Sleeve Length||411.3mm/16.2″|
|Knurling Marks||Knurling Marks Weightlifting & Powerlifting|
|Shaft Finish||Hardened Chrome|
|Sleeve Finish||Hardened Chrome|
|Sleeve Assembly||Needles & Snap Rings|
|Tensile Strength||240,000 PSI|
|Warranty||Limited Lifetime Warranty|
Packaged with hard thick cardboard tube and an aluminium end cap to ensure your bar arrives safe and sound.
Frequently Asked Questions
It has a 800lb capacity.
An Olympic weightlifting bar has needle bearings instead of bushings, which allows the sleeves to spin more freely. Typically, it has a 28mm diameter (although this bar is 25mm) to provide more whip in the bar and is designed to withstand repeated drops from overhead positions.
In the box, you’ll find the barbell itself and a generous coating of oil in order to minimize oxidation during shipping.

First Oly specific barbell
So far so good. One end of the barbell had a dent/scratch. Looked like the end cap fell off. Wasn’t badly damaged but still wish there wasn’t any. Spin was good as can be expected from the price point. Knurlings were pretty good. Would like it to be just slightly deeper but that’s a personal preference. Would recommend this barbell for beginners.

I bought this for my wife. She's only used it a couple of times however she likes it, it spins nicely and the knurling is great.

Best barbell on the market
I purchased this item for my wife; she has started training more seriously with a barbell and require the smaller bar. Shipping was fast, I think it was 3 days. Knurling, finish and bearings are excellent. She set a PR on all of her lifts shortly afterwards. I sold an again faster bar to purchase this one and this bar is far superior to that one. For the price there is no better barbell on the market, I have tried most of them including Eleiko, and Rogue, for a home gym this is the best.
