Product Education

Setting new standards in the strength industry, the 250K Power Bar was designed with the singular goal of creating a barbell worthy of world-class performances. Developed through rigorous testing and crafted using a proprietary heat treatment process, this competition-standard bar consistently outperforms, offering exceptional durability through a 250,000 PSI tensile strength rating.

Boasting unmatched resilience and a design tailored for high-performance lifting, the 250K Power Bar features aggressive knurling for a secure grip and standardized dimensions that meet powerlifting competition specifications. This bar is not just about strength; it's about enhancing control and maintaining technique through every lift. Crafted with American steel and assembled by hand in Portland, Oregon, each 250K Power Bar is a testament to Kabuki Power's dedication to quality, designed to be a lifelong training companion and a testament to industrial artistry.

At Kabuki Power, we don’t just manufacture barbells; we forge legacies. Distinguished by our unique stamped end-caps and our signature “Black Ice” finish for increased durability and a sleek look, the 250K Power Bar is a worthy centerpiece of any barbell collection.

FAQs

Please read our FAQs page to find out more.

What does the higher tensile strength and hardness mean in practical terms?

A bar’s metallurgical properties are the primary determining factors in the mechanical properties of the bar, or in more practical terms, how the bar behaves in the lifter hands against gravity and the force generated. The yield strength of the metal determines how much stress it can take before permanent deformation, while the tensile strength measures its breaking, or fracture point. The softer, or lower strength a bar is - the more it bends under load. The harder, or higher yield/tensile strength a bar is - the less it bends under load. Each of these options varies the feel or oscillation of a bar under load, and the art of bar design comes in determining the fine dance between the bars properties and how it behaves under load, against gravity.

What is the difference between Kabuki knurl and other bar’s knurl?

Our knurl was designed from the ground up and based on established research to 1) be the “stickiest” knurl possible, 2) minimize dermal penetration and damage to skin, and 3) maximize neural response.

I’ve heard that the 250k Power Bar by Kabuki “just feels better” than other barbells. What does this mean?

Besides the unmatched knurl design, Kabuki’s new generation straight 250k barbells use a proprietary metallurgical technique to produce a hardness that preserves the durability of higher tensile strength & rockwell hardness while mitigating the traditionally-associated fracture risk + negative oscillation and physics properties. Years of practical experience in strength sports, deeper continuing education in exercise science and kinesiology, combined with a technical background in engineering/metallurgy makes Kabuki the perfect team to fine-tune the perfect barbell using novel techniques.

Can this bar be used in sanctioned powerlifting competitions?

Yes, the 250k Power Bar meets the competition specifications for the IPF (pending their approval to actually use in competition), USAPL, IPL, and USPA along with all other major powerlifting federations. Only metallic finishes like Zinc or Black Oxide can be used on the competition platform.
