Peak performance starts with a barbell made for the job. Kabuki’s commitment to innovation runs strong in our manufacturing facility and processes, resulting in bars built outside of the box. The Oregon Power Bar is crafted with unique, state-of-the-art techniques, yielding a barbell that’s optimized for heavy lifts down to the smallest of details.
A perfect choice for all three of the powerlifts, the Oregon Power Bar’s combination of 190,000 PSI tensile strength with a 28.5MM shaft diameter results in low flexion and minimized bar whip. The bar’s center knurl grabs the lifter’s back during the heaviest of squats, while the slightly narrower shaft facilitates a more secure deadlift grip.
The Oregon Power Bar sports our renowned “Kabuknurl,” a fully raised knurl pattern designed to grip skin, not tear it. With a tacky, not sharp, “cratered” design, the Kabuknurl provides maximum neural feedback with minimal damage to the skin’s surface. With competition-standard powerlifting marks, the Oregon Power Bar is the perfect sport-specific choice when training for your top total.
Speaking of knurling, rather than using an additive plating process (like zinc or nickel) we went back to the drawing board and worked to develop our proprietary RAW Finish™. Without argument, a bare steel bar is the optimal interface between lifter and iron - but most barbells today are metal plated for corrosion resistance or aesthetic purpose - albeit compromising on knurl feel and performance. RAW finished bars like the Oregon Power Bar are factory-treated with Bar Sauce, a proprietary blend of minerals of oils developed specifically for barbells and strength equipment.
The RAW acronym captures the essence of this innovative finish.
- "Repairable" signifies the ease with which any natural metal surface, regardless of its condition or level of oxidation, can be repaired to its original condition and protected against corrosion.
- Anti-corrosion" highlights its primary function, offering robust protection against rust and degradation, particularly vital in variable humidity environments and exposure to elements like sweat.
- "Weatherguard" rounds out the trio, ensuring the barbell's resilience against diverse weather and humidity conditions, ensuring long lasting performance regardless of where you live
