Cerakote Utility Barbell – Multipurpose Bar

Our classic reliable, well rounded Olympic sized barbell with black cerakote sleeves and a striking blue or orange cerakote shaft finish for an awesome price.






A reliable, well rounded Olympic sized barbell for an awesome price.

The cerakote utility barbell is virtually identical to our best-selling utility barbell but finished with cerakote.

What is Cerakote?

Cerakote is a ceramic and polymer coating that creates stunning looks and better durability. The coating is considered the best in the barbell game next to stainless steel.

Our next-generation basic bar, the Cerakote Utility Barbell is designed to be an all-around solution for bench press, squats, deadlifts, and the Olympic lifts (cleans, jerks, and snatches). This barbell is an excellent option for well-rounded garage gym athletes, as well as commercial gyms.

As a generalist bar, the Utility Barbell is designed for people who don’t adhere to a particular strength sport and just love an excellent bar. With a 28.5mm diameter, it’s just a tad thicker than an Olympic weightlifting bar (28mm diameter) and a smidge thinner than a powerlifting bar (29mm diameter). Brass bushings means the sleeves and no bearings makes for a smooth but not over-rotation and an ultra-secure snap ring is used to keep it all together. A medium-light knurl won’t chew your hands up when power cleaning, but complemented with knurling in the middle means the bar has a better grip when squatting.

IMPORTANT: For cerakote-coated barbells, added care should be used to avoid abrasive metal-to-metal contact. Tight-fitting metal collars, un-lined landmine attachments, and j-cups, etc — these can potentially cut into or wear off the cerakote finish. Taking these extra precautions will preserve that beautiful rust-resistant finish for years to come!

Cerakote Utility Barbell - Multipurpose Bar - Blue

Great bar. I have ordered 4 for the school. Very similar in feel to the rogue bar. Love the cerakote finish, students dig the blue color. I do like the knurl in the center for squats etc. High quality bar at a good price!

Hey there Jaksun, Thanks for the stellar review. The Cerakote Utility Bars are solid for all-around training, and the blue color is SWEET! Glad the students are digging the color as well! Love to see coaches incorporate B.o.S. gear. Rock on. Thanks again, and happy lifting! Kat and the B.o.S. Crew


Good product

Very good barbell; some rust came out right away on the side; maybe just a small de defect. Happy overall


Bells of Steel

Thanks for the review! Sorry to hear that you had some rust on your bar but I'm glad you were able to get it off. We have noticed the rust being an issue on a few of our bars and our team is working hard to ensure it isn't an issue in the future. Happy lifting! Brandon and the B.o.S. Crew

Great bar!

I really enjoy this bar especially for bench press. The lighter knurling gives me the grip needed without grating my palms down. And the cerekote finish is just beautiful. I initially received one with imperfections and BoS exchanged it for me. I love companies that stand behind their products. Thanks BoS!

Best Value

This barbell has the best value to quality ratio I could find for a bar that has a cerakote coating on both the shaft AND sleeves. I was actually surprised how high quality it was. The bar was slightly damaged in shipping as it possibly slid out the tube, but its still metal and barely anything. I saw the delivery driver drop it off, she was struggling with it quite a bit so it might be much to expect them to handle it.
