Maxwod is pleased to announce that we will be adding Eleiko Olympic bars, bumper plates, kettlebells & collars to our site in the next few weeks. If you need to ask “what is the best Olympic bar on the market”, then you haven’t tried an Eleiko bar.
Eleiko has been the leading manufacturer of weightlifting, strength & conditioning and powerlifting products for over 50 years. Eleiko products are all manufactured in Sweden with the highest level of quality control and craftsmanship. Every Eleiko Bar comes with a production date, batch number, serial number and the names of the craftsman who helped make the bar. The bar can be tracked all the way from the steelworks to the end user.
Each Eleiko bar is tested to insure that it will never bend during a competition or while training. Bars are placed in a vice and bent with a force of 1,500kg. Bars must spring back to the exact same straightness with a maximum deviation of 0.5mm. The Eleiko bar is manufactured of unique Swedish steel and comes with a lifetime warranty. The PSI rating of Eleiko Olympic Bars is 215,000 PSI. This means that it requires 215,000 pounds per square inch to pull the bar apart.
The knurling of the Eleiko bar is unlike any other Olympic Bar. The smooth but sharp contact of the knurling gives athletes sound rotation of the sleeves along with an amazing grip.
Eleiko Competition Discs are also manufactured in Sweden using the highest quality rubber and craftsmanship. Every Eleiko competition rubber disc is tested for a minimum of 5,000 drops to ensure that it meets Eleiko’s strict quality control. Eleiko competition disc are calibrated to meet IWF rules, so a 5kg disc must be within +0.1% and -0.05%. This means that the weight intolerance on a 25kg plate is less than 25 grams. The difference is less than one tenth of one percent.
Maxwod is pleased to offer Eleiko on our site. We expect to have Eleiko products available for our site within the next two weeks.
