When selecting a barbell for your commercial or home gym, you need one that can meet all your lifting needs. The Again Faster Evolution Olympic Barbell can handle everything from powerlifting to cross-training to Olympic lifts without breaking the bank.
The Evolution bar is manufactured with medium carbon 190,000 psi steel. Each sleeve is machined from a single piece of steel, not welded like other weightlifting barbells, and is completed with self-lubricating bronze bushings and dual-snap rings. The Evolution Bar is available in bright, hard chrome for a great feel and lasting durability. To top it off, we back every bar by a limited lifetime warranty.
Again Faster’s Evolution Olympic Barbell sleeves are machined from solid bar stock, not welded like the competitors, eliminating a potential failure point.
It has mild knurling and a 28 mm shaft diameter, which makes this Oly bar best for CrossFit-style workouts or high-volume lifting. It’s easy to grip, and your hands will thank you during heavy-load, high-rep movements which involve deadlifts, power cleans, clean and jerk, snatches, and more.
The bright, hard chrome finish and IWF standard Olympic knurl marks make for a great-looking bar. The Evolution Olympic Barbell is perfect for athletes looking for an economically priced barbell that accommodates a range of training methods.
If you’re an experienced lifter looking for a fast, dynamic bar, we recommend the Team Barbell 2.0.

If you’re new to Olympic lifting or looking to save money on your home gym setup, the Evolution bar is for you. As you fine-tune your performance, you need a durable barbell that will lift with you.
A versatile, affordable option for gym owners who want to stock up on barbell equipment or athletes who want to set up their own home gym, this barbell is designed to help you achieve your fitness goals.
Bushing bars are typically used for heavier or slower movements, such as powerlifting exercises like squats, benches, and deadlifts.
People who use bearing or bushing weights interchangeably often do so because they're not married to any particular style of lifting. Both provide great spins. However, using a bearing bar over a bushing one for slower lifts can make you feel off-balance when performing movements like the bench press.
If you’ve ever performed a bench press with a needle-bearing bar, you know how it feels when the weight wobbles in your hands. The barbell allows the weight to move even though you’re typically strong and stable.
The Evolution Olympic Bar has self-lubricated bushing bearings. The bushings are located between the sleeves and the bar. Because the bushings aren't fixed to the bars or sleeves, they let the sleeves rotate around the shaft. Bushings are slower and more measured compared to bearings. They're made to withstand the rigors of daily use at home or in busy gym environments.
Hard chrome is well priced, affordable, and fights against rust better than other options. The Evolution Barbell is finished in hard chrome that is virtually indestructible and will not peel, chip, or flake. Plus, the chrome finish on the barbell’s shaft and into the knurling causes it to be slightly less aggressive on your hands.
With bronze bushings inside the loading sleeves, you can use the Evolution bar for a variety of lifts. Bronze won’t ever wear down, slides smoothly against the steel sleeve, and provides a low-friction spin. When performing any lift that requires the bar to spin, this barbell will decrease the torque your wrists and elbows must endure. The slower spin makes this a solid barbell for powerlifting.
The volcano-style moderate knurling maximizes grip while eliminating sharp points that can tear your hands. Mild knurling is ideal for anyone focusing on high-rep lifts. The absence of center knurling is perfect for power cleans, as there is no knurl to cause chest irritation.
The Evolution Olympic Barbell sleeves are machined from solid bar stock and feature a grooved pattern to keep the plates in place while lifting.
