Starting Strength 20kg Bar by Texas Power Bars
History

The Starting Strength bar lineup was designed in 2018 by Buddy Capps and Texas Power Bars at the request of Mark Rippetoe for Starting Strength Gyms. These bars are bare steel all the way, a comfortable 28.5 mm* in diameter with the best knurl in the industry. The collars on the SS bars were redesigned with a bigger (3.25”) **diameter, shorter overall length, which also increases the plate space. The collars and sleeves are machined to a near smooth finish. The shafts have a center knurl (20 kg only) and dual ring marks. The 3-bar lineup includes a 20 kg, a 15 kg, and 10 kg option for all ages and strength levels. A natural steel bar that will age gracefully with your gym, The Starting Strength Bar will be your favorite piece of equipment for decades.
*15kg & 10kg are 25mm
**10kg collar is 3” OD

5 of 5 Very pleased after six months of use January 22, 2020
Reviewer: Kevin Holmes from Voorheesville, NY United States  
Bar is stored in climate-controlled space - bare steel holds up great. I scrub it with a heavy-duty nylon bristle brush for a minute after each session to clean out the chalk and any oxidation. Another six months and the patina should be more visible - it's barely there right now but looking good.

Knurl is amazing. It will save your hands and shins when deadlifting but offer you a fantastic grip especially with a little chalk the bar is like velcro to your hands.

Bar is plenty stiff and extremely well made. GO USA!

Reviewer: Aaron Dimmette from Hickory, NC United States  
Really love the knurling pattern on the SS bars.  Sticks in your hand without being overly aggressive.  Very well done.

5 of 5 Great Bar for Starting Strength December 27, 2019
Reviewer: TS from Edmonds, WA United States  
Totally happy with this bar as a product and Texas Power Bars as a company.
After reading a lot of positive reviews, I originally purchased an Ohio Power Bar from another company.  The knurling on that bar was WAY too aggressive for a general-purpose (squat/DL/bench/press/clean) bar.  Admittedly, I also didn't like the coating on that bar or the 29mm diameter.

After returning the first bar, I bought the "Starting Strength 20kg Bar" from TPB and couldn't be happier.  The knurling is perfect, the 28.5mm diameter fits well and the uncoated finish just feels right.
