The Russians were not only the first to fly into space, but they also made the first so-called Russian Bar. Oppose to normal bars this one has also engraved spirals on the sleeves, so the Russian collars can be screwed to the bar, for greater safety and stoping the bumpers from sliding down from the sleeves. KingsBox Russian bar is designed for the most demanding athletes, made from the best quality steel and equipped with needle bearings. Each bar was tested to ensure excellent balance, rotation and durability. The barbell is made in accordance with the IWF standards and has central knurling marks. The marks are made for Olympic weightlifting.
