GIANT GB1 Bar - Hard Chrome
The 28mm GB1 Bar-Hard Chrome is Giant Lifting's go-to multi-purpose barbell. Constructed with snap rings and two bushings in each sleeve providing optimal spin. There is an adequate amount of whip to the bar that makes this an efficient and comfortable bar for Olympic lifting. Powerlifting and bodybuilding are also options given the bar's 1000lb static capacity.
The diamond knurling pattern has medium-light depth and 18” of knurl on each side of the bar. Silver hard chrome shaft and sleeves add a clean finish. 190,000 PSI chrome shaft with decent spin (not too much) is great for bench, squat, deadlifts, etc.

Works fine. Although I haven’t really tested in a heavy weight yet. Also, in the picture it’s kind of a darker chrome but in reality it’s just a steel color. The first picture in the website is somewhat misleading. So far so good though! Would recommend!
It was love at first site. Damn thing is pretty. However, it came with a few blemishes due to shipping screws. I contacted Giant and they quickly refunded me $25. I filed the blemishes down a bit. Still pretty despite the little pock marks. Like a two baggger, I focus on the "good" side of the bar. I'm definitely sticking with Giant over Titan.
I'm very happy with my barbell it's well built and the knurling is great I don't use gloves and it's been very comfortable 10/10 would purchase again!
Very friendly, knowledgeable. Will definitely be buying more equipment from them.
Amazing quality and price
