  • How does this bar differ from bars you’ve sold in the past?

    Our new line of barbells is our first, in-house, engineered lineup. Every part of these bars was designed by our Colorado-based engineering team to meet our specifications and to perform better than any bar we’ve ever carried.

  • How does this bar compare to others on the market?

    The Mesa Technique Bar is a high-quality bar to help you learn the proper techniques of both Olympic weightlifting and powerlifting, so it features dual knurling marks (IPF and IWF). It features the same width and length as a standard bar, so it fits on a normal power rack, and it works with regular weight plates. Load it with up to 50lbs to practice your technique. Light knurling supports your grip, without being too aggressive for high-volume training. And super tough Duracoat® sleeves provide a high level of corrosion and wear resistance – at a level you won’t typically find on a beginner bar. Read more here.

  • Can I use the Mesa Technique Bar for my regular lifting, too?

    This is a technique training barbell, not meant for heavy loads. If you're able to lift more than 65lbs (the weight of the bar plus a 50lbs load), it's ideal for the life of your Mesa Technique Bar to move to a heavier barbell.

  • Will this bar fit on my rack?

    Yes, the Mesa Technique Bar will fit on 47” and 49” width racks.

  • What coatings are offered for this bar?

    The Mesa Technique Bar is available in an aluminum shaft with Duracoat® sleeves.

  • 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.

  • What does “knurl style” mean?

    The knurling on a barbell is the crosshatch pattern on the shaft that increases the grip of your hands on the bar. There are three types of knurl styles that we utilize throughout our barbells: hill, volcano, and mountain. Hill-style knurling is the most passive and won’t dig into your hands for lifts. It is a good option for training bars, but if you’re looking to max out, we recommend a bar with another style. Mountain is the most aggressive knurl style. You’ll see this style with most of our powerlifting barbells to provide the best grip for your one-rep maxes. The most common knurl style you’ll see on a lot of our weightlifting and mixed-use bars is volcano. Volcano knurling has a good amount of grip without tearing up your hands. Learn more about knurling here.

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

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

  • Are your barbells compatible with other branded plates?

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

  • Which barbell is best suited for me?

    This depends on the type of training you do and your goals. If you are not sure how to decide on a barbell, reach out to our team of passionate lifters here and we will help match you and your training style with a barbell. You can also check out this blog that compares REP’s various straight barbells.

  • How do I clean the protective oil on the barbell shaft?

    When your barbell arrives, there will be a light coating of oil on the shaft and sleeves. This is to protect the barbell from the elements during shipping. After a few uses, this light coating of oil will begin to dissipate. However, if desired, the best way to clean the barbell when it first arrives is to use a durable rag and a disinfecting wipe/cleaner that is free of harsh chemicals (such as bleach, ammonia, alcohol, or peroxide). For even more grip, we recommend using chalk.

  • How do I take care of my barbell?

    This bar is designed to last many years without anything more than 3-in-1 oil added for lubrication. Remove dirt or chalk from the knurling with a brush and oil on a microfiber cloth. If you have any issues beyond that, please reach out to our Colorado-based customer support team here.

  • Does the Mesa Technique Bar have a warranty?

    Yes, it comes with a 1-year warranty.
