FAQS

  • 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?

    This bar is for weightlifters who appreciate the fine details on a bar they intend to use for many years. It’s compliant with International Weightlifting Federation standards for a competition bar for women – plus it has high-end details, like laser etchings on the inside of the sleeves and decorative, metal endcaps. The Alpine has premium, hybrid needle-bearing sleeves, which provide a super smooth rotation, while protecting the shaft. This isn’t just another barbell; we designed this to be the best 15kg Olympic weightlifting barbell possible – one that you will use and love for years to come. Read more here.

  • What coatings are offered for this bar?

    The 15kg Alpine Weightlifting Bar is available in hard chrome-coated shaft and sleeves.

  • What is hard chrome and how is it different than regular (or decorative) chrome?

    The main difference between hard chrome and decorative chrome is the thickness of the chrome application and how that improves durability. Decorative chrome is the shiny surface you see on car wheels, musical instruments, tools, and hardware. It provides good rust resistance, but it is subject to wear and flaking. On the other hand, hard chrome is more frequently found in industrial applications where high wear resistance is needed. As such, it’s much less prone to flaking and other wear issues found with decorative chrome. The finish has a more matte sheen to it, similar to stainless steel in appearance. It’s the most durable finish we offer, beating even Cerakote. Check out our blog on barbell finishes for more information.

  • 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 15kg Alpine Weightlifting Bar’s hybrid needle-bearing sleeve design is optimal for Olympic lifts, such as the snatch and the clean and jerk.

  • 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 knurl styles that we use on 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. Read 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: International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) and International Weightlifting Federation (IWF). The knurl markings allow for athletes to set up properly for the lift they are attempting 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.

  • How much weight can I load on this bar?

    The 15kg Alpine Weightlifting Bar is rated for 1,500lbs.

  • 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 15kg Alpine Weightlifting Bar have a warranty?

    Yes, it comes with a lifetime warranty*.
