The highest verifiable strength rating in the sport
Hardened satin chrome sleeves
Prevents rust, allows for easier sliding of plates onto the sleeve and provides an attractive contrast to the shaft
HRC 48 Rockwell Hardness
Provides an optimum balance between stiffness and flex
High performance bushings
Self-lubricating oil impregnated bronze bushings ensure
– optimal rotation
– maximum weight disbursement over the length of the bushing and sleeve to prevent seizing
– maximum durability
Black Magnetite shaft
Humidity resistant and inhibits rust with a super durable finish that does not impact knurling. The finish is approximately 1 micrometer thick. The mineral Magnetite is superior to low-cost Zinc or Nitride coating.
Heat strengthened steel alloy
The bar strength is substantially increased over standard steel mill specs through an additional heat treating process

What Powerlifting Champions Say
I own an Eleiko, Ivanko, Q-Bar and now a Titex. This Titex is so extremely close to the Eleiko that it’s a toss up for stiffness and feel.
I can see 2 big advantages for the Titex. The Q-Bar and Eleiko had very aggressive knurling and torn up that hands pretty bad initially. The Titex hasn’t done that but it still has enough for a great grip.
The second is with the finish. My Eleiko has been tough to keep looking good. The Titex is a black finish on the shaft so I’m anticipating less wear.
– Jonathan (Jona) Leo (IPF Bench Press World Champion, World Record Holder)
The Titex is the ultimate bar for training and competition. The knurling has been perfected to a degree unseen before. It offers excellent grip yet isn’t aggressive and doesn’t tear up your hands. The stiffness is what you would expect of an IPF competition bar. Thrilled with the quality and performance.
