The ISF Power Bar is one of the best powerlifting barbells on market, featuring some of the most aggressive and deepest cut knurling out there. We built this Power Barbell with a stiff shaft to handle whatever lift you can throw at it, whether that be the bench, squat, or deadlift all with the intent of making the best barbell for powerlifting no mater if you are a beginner weight lifter or a seasoned pro. The ISF Power Barbell was in development for about 5 months, and we extensively tested it with some of the strongest powerlifters in the North East USA, carefully paying attention to what feedback we received in order to bring to market the best powerlifting bar that we could make.
The ISF Power Bar is 20kg (weight accurate to +/- 100g), features a 29MM shaft with 4.75" center knurl, and is more stiff at 205k to 210k tensile strength than other bars on market costing double or triple the price. A static load of between 1200-1500 kgs applied to the bar for 100 seconds will permanently deform the bar by only 1.0mm.
We are offering the bar in polished bare steel, and black oxide at this time to maximize the aggressive grip. Note that with both options there will be maintenance required in order to keep the bar from rusting. We are also offering the bar in a ceramic Cerakote coating in Red and Blue known for its high resistance to oxidation.
When designing this bar, the common theme amongst our Powerlifting friends was "most aggressive knurling," and we accomplished just that, creating a barbell with a deep and sharp aggressive cut.
This is a very high performing barbell at a budget-friendly price.
Please Note ISF barbells come oiled out of box to prevent rusting during storage and transport. You can wipe down the bar shaft with a rag to remove excess oil.

Who should buy the ISF Power Bar?
The ISF Power Bar is a great bar if you are into the sport of Powerlifting, whether a competitive athlete or just someone training at home. We offer our Power Barbell at a great price. They are a little thicker than our 28mm barbell offerings, coming in at 29mm. They are also a little stiffer, and feature a more aggressive knurling. If you are a female athlete in the sport of Powerlifting, then you will be using the same 29mm barbell as the guys, so this will be the power barbell you need. This is an all around bar, great for the traditional compound lifts like your squat, bench, and deadlift. The ISF Power Bar will suit your needs whether you are a seasoned athlete at an elite level like Daniel Bell above, or someone just starting out.

Best bar I ownI wanted to try the black oxide ISF power bar. —- My. Sweet. Lord. —- This bar is beyond incredible. The knurl is sharper/more aggressive than the Texas power bar, the knurl and strength of the bar (firm/no whip at all) judged on bench is far more solid than the Rogue OPB. After one workout I posted my rogue opb for sale. Honestly this is my go-to bar. When comparing bars I can’t see how this black oxide bar wouldn’t be the one to get when/if you can. Knurl pics especially in a black bar are hard but I hope you can see the clear separation and peak. Rob is a great guy who in this time has recently added to staff, building up more products and I really can’t wait to support him and ISF more in the near future.Review by Joshua F. on 17 Mar 2021So Good I Bought Another!Want to be in the know about ISF gear? Join our mailing list below!ISF Power Bar has the most aggressive knurl already, and looks amazing in it’s nice silver sheen, but if you want aggressive knurl, no whip when you in rack your squat or bench, and the most badass sleeves and end caps on the market, you want the ISF Lift Evil Power Bar. I first purchased this bar back in early 2020, and my gym loves it so much I bought another as soon as they came back in stock recently. Thanks for making an amazing product that lasts! The bar with nightly wear for a year still performs exactly the same as the new one!
