The Keystone Bar - Women's 15kg Olympic Needle Bearing Training Bar

The CFF Keystone Bar is the optimal choice of Olympic bar for Olympic lifting or Crossfit®. Highest quality, exceptional performance and feel in your hands, affordable!

For the past three years, we've worked tirelessly, side by side with Team USA Olympic Weightlifting Master Class Champion Russell McDonald, nationally-ranked, competitive weightlifter Jon Zajac, and extensively certified, professional box owner/trainer Tim Steel to produce and test an Olympic, Needle Bearing Training Bar in 20kg & 15kg configurations following IWF Specifications.

The result: A bar we like so much, we call it the Keystone Bar. It's the foundation of our Olympic bar offerings and is a nod to our home state of Pennsylvania - The Keystone State. We're proud to say most people don't believe us when we tell them the Keystone is less than $300. It really does feel & perform like an $800 bar!

Using the highest quality materials, we manufactured our needle bearing bar with AISI/SAE Specification steel. This steel is precisely CNC/milled, forged & heat tempered to a tensile strength of 205,000 PSI, and Yield of 166,750 PSI giving this bar excellent whip (ability to flex and bend) for a training bar. Too little and your max effort is wasted. Too much and your form is thrown off. The bar is then straightened to within a tolerance of half a millimeter.

The CFF Olympic Training Bar has dual markings for Olympic lifters and power-lifters, knurling all the way to the sleeves, and no center knurling. Each bar is inspected for consistency of cut, depth, & quality of knurl throughout the bar, ensuring ideal grip no matter where you grab it.

Sleeves are precision milled and secured with dual snap rings for extra strength. Inside each are 4 high quality needle bearings and a brass bushing, delivering buttery smooth rotation. Top that off with hardened chrome finish at a price less than half of comparable bars and you have a fantastic bar at a fantastic value.

To ensure the longevity of the bar, needle bearing bars should be stored horizontally. Storing a needle bearing bars vertically stresses the bearings in directions they aren't designed to handle. This can decrease lubrication and lead to bearing failure. A great solution to this problem is getting our CFF Horizontal 6 Bar Storage Rack

Exceptional Value
by Steve on Jan 4, 2016
I bought the men's keystone bar, liked it so much that I bought the women's keystone bar, too.

This is a very good bar. Knurling is uniform and just enough (not too deep, too sharp, or over-aggressive). Spin is excellent, smooth and equal at both sides.

Packaging was excellent. The bar was delivered in a very heavy, stiff cardboard tube , with plenty of packing material around the sleeves. The bar arrived straight and true.

This bar is a great value at its regular price. On sale, it's an exceptional bargain.
Best Bar

I've used the Pendlay bar in the past. Not only does this bar have better spin, it is a fraction of the price. CFF has great equipment - we are looking to outfit the entire garage with CFF! High quality, great prices!

I had a Pendlay bar that cost somewhere around $300. This was a bushing bar, which lost its spin pretty quickly. I also have had a Rogue Chan Bar, which is also a bushing bar. Same issue, the spin is not that great to begin with, but even after oiling periodically, the spin is not great. This bar I used at Lancaster Barbell Club when I was visiting. Fell in love with the feel of the bar. Thought it was definitely a bar worth $800 or more, when I found out it was the price that it is, I was mind-blown. Sold my Pendlay bar the next night, and had this at my gym by Tuesday that week. Keep up the great work.
