Type of Warranty

Manufacturing Fault

Warranty Period


Do Not

  • Drop unevenly onto the ground, spotting arms, a power rack or box etc.
  • Drop or hit the bar's end cap
  • Drop bar on ground when empty
  • Leave the bar stored with weights on the collars
  • Use weight plates that aren't calibrated to the barbell's sleeve diameter (max. collar diameter of 50mm)
  • Load the bar with a weight that exceeds the load rating


  • Normal wear and tear, cosmetic damages, surface scratches, rust (this is the responsibility of the purchaser to maintain the barbell)
  • This warranty is conditional on proper maintenance, so long as the barbell's end caps are straight and intact. SMAI's barbells have undergone extensive testing to achieve their load ratings, and bending should not occur. As such, all barbell claims will undergo extensive assessment by our engineering team to determine the cause.


Basic cleaning of the bar to avoid rust:

  • Cleaning the chalk out of the knurling removes the opportunity for moisture to build up in the gaps (chalk absorbs moisture and will draw moisture from the air, in turn causing rust to develop in the knurling)
  • To rid the bar of chalk you need to use a hard-non-abrasive nylon bristle brush and ideally this should be done daily, however if you own 20-30 barbells, to clean these daily would be impossible, so in this instance cycle your maintenance weekly by cleaning half of your bars one week and the other half the next week to ensure the bars are regularly cleaned

Another way to avoid rust developing is to spray the bar with WD-40:

  •  To apply correctly spray the WD-40 on a rag and make sure to cover the entire shaft, sleeves and collars of the bar
  • Leave it for a few hours or overnight (whichever is more convenient) and then wipe off the excess with a dry cloth
  • The environment and usage your barbell is exposed to will determine how regularly you need to apply WD-40
  • If the barbell is kept indoors and is only for home use, doing this once or twice a month would be more than sufficient
  • If the barbell is in a more exposed, open-aired environment or used multiple times a day it is recommended to do so weekly or even twice a week.

Some examples of other factors that can diminish the life of your bar are the following:

  • Storage involving the bar being weight loaded (this will bend the bar over time as the barbells are not designed to hold weight for extended periods of time)
  • Always ensure when re-racking or storing the bar that you do so onto non-abrasive surfaces such as nylon, rubber or plastic
  • Unevenly re-racking your barbell abruptly can also cause it to bend
  • Using weight plates that aren’t calibrated to the barbell’s sleeve diameter (especially when dropping onto the ground or loading and unloading plates the metal can wear the collar’s metal)
  • Loading the bar with a weight that exceeds the load rating

Top Notch Barbell

Love these bars! I regularly build up to 140+kg Oly lifting and this bar handles with ease. The bearings are nice smooth, free flowing and sturdy. Would recommend these to any gym!
