Cerakote Bomba Barbell Makes You Top Gun

“Make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up." - George S. Patton

When Fringe Nation boasts as much mental strength as it has, we know their minds will never let their bodies give up. This compelled us to make a barbell that never gives up on you, and never fails you as you push beyond your boundaries. With immense pride, we present to you the cerakote Bomba; the Bomba that will win you the war to be your best, and still be tried and true when you're crowned victor.

Cerakote to the Finish Line

The primary use of Cerakote employs it as a type of gun coating and finish. Think of it kind of like 2 in 1 paint and sealant that closely resembles how lacquer serves as a finish and sealant for wood. Although Cerakote doesn't have shellac, it still serves a similar role.

What is Cerakote? Cerakote isn't paint. Cerakote works as a Polymer-Ceramic coating with uses for metals, plastics, polymers and wood. The special properties of Cerakote coating enhance various physical performance properties: abrasion/wear resistance, corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, impact strength, and hardness. Cerakote is a portmanteau of "cera" for ceramic, and "kote", a misspelling of coat. 

Cerakote provides distinct advantages compared to other finishes. Cerakote offers a good degree of lubricity, serving as a lubricant after the finish has been applied. Unlike other lubricants, Cerakote attracts much less dirt, dust and other particles, keeping your barbell cleaner and ensuring consistent spin. Cerakote makes a highly effective barrier against oxidation and corrosion. People living in marine environments or on a coast find this advantageous. Cerakote also helps defend against excess sweat (lifting during hot summer months?) and extremely hot and dusty (or the desert?) environments as well.

Originally developed for the military for firearms application, Cerakote protects against corrosion resistance, enhances impact strength (drop barbells much?), and chemical resistance in the most extreme conditions worldwide. If the US military tested and uses Cerakote in the harshest conditions in the world, then it's going to be the Bomba on your barbell.

You da Bomba

We can’t stand being like everyone else either and nor should you. That’s why we made the Bomba barbell. The impressive and handsome barbell serves as a great all-around bar, that will make you feel stellar when you’re lifting on it, because it’s produced with Alabama steel and made in the U.S.A. We want to be Morpheus to your Neo. The red pill is to the Bomba bar, as the blue pill is to the rest. Going down the rabbit hole, you’ll realize the brutal truth of reality tells you that the Bomba bar will help you get through adversity, as you strive towards heroic feats befitting a champion.

Champ Stamp
The quality of training determines the quality of champion. We want you to turn you into a goal digger, and succeed, so we’ve produced an exceptional barbell for that express purpose. You’re going to feel guilty after getting a Bomba barbell because the quality will astound you. Don’t feel bad at all, we’ll be delighted that you have a Bomba to help achieve your goals. Here’s how the Bomba will stamp you a champ:

  • Born in the U.S.A. Alabama sourced steel, and a maker’s mark that will make you the toast of the town. You’ll be singing the praises of this bar like The Boss.
  • Texas Tough. The Bomba rivals the Alamo in durability. Boasting an intimidating 206,000 PSI of tensile strength, the Bomba will handle any load you can dream of with ease. You benefit by never worrying about the structural integrity of your training nucleus.
  • Whip (it Good). Finding that sweet spot intersection of the Venn diagram of stiff and loose, the moderate whip delivers more hits to your training than a pop band.
  • Spin Control. The soothing, intermediate spin will please you like watching a vinyl record turn.
  • First Place Finish. Cerakote finish optimizes grip-friendly, anti-rust, anti- corrosion and anti-oxidation mix, resulting in an eye-catching, sleek and sexy barbell built to withstand all the toughest conditions and weather elements you can throw at it.
  • Low Maintenance. We don’t want to remind you of that needy ex, so know there’s zero maintenance required for the bushing barbell.
  • Lifetime Warranty. You’ll never have to worry about breaking bad with us, or bending it like Beckham. We want you to lift off, not to tee you off.
  • Value. After the first explosive lifts you have, you’ll know why the Bomba rules as the best value for an American made, all-around training barbell.

How the Bomba Dropped

Years ago, Fringe Sport introduced the Bomba barbell dropping it from overhead onto the training world, causing an explosion in the barbell universe. Laboring in the rugged, Appalachian Mountains of Alabama, our blacksmiths forged a stout, versatile bar embodying fine craftsmanship and user comfort. As popularity spread from hollers to hilltops of the American made, high utility bar, our first-adopters spoke loud and proud. They demanded better quality, poking our blacksmiths’ pride. Sweat rolling down their sooty faces, onto their leather aprons, they took up the challenge in earnest and hammered out an improved version with dogged determination.

After incorporating the feedback, our forge unveiled the Bomba Barbell V2; a mighty, American-made specimen, suited for all-around training endeavors, from slow lifts to Oly and WODing. Now the knurling reaches all the way to the collars, and we slimmed the width of the “shoulder” on the collars as well, allowing for greater loads our champions required. Respecting the impressive physical power of our tribe, we were forced to increase the tensile strength of the steel PSI to 206,000. Now the Bomba Barbell V2 has become one of the strongest barbells you can buy.

Bombarding the Home Gym Universe

Unsheathing the Bomba bar from the packaging, the handsome, Cerakote finish seduces you. The unliftable 2,200 lb weight capacity mocks you, while the monstrous 206,000 lb tensile strength inspires you to perform astounding feats of strength, like pulling steel out of stone. We apologize if you mistake the Bomba bar for Excalibur for a brief moment, even though their origin stories are oceans apart.

Local myth has it that during a late-night tempest, lightning hit the mountaintop at the same time the hammer gave the bar its final strike, causing a bomb-like explosion heard as far away as Mexico. The “bomba” dropped, birthing a legend. Now, in pueblos dotting Mexico, your “bomba” means your personal record. Go ahead, don’t hesitate, drop some “bombas” for us.


We’re so confident of the Bomba now, having been blessed by the heavens, that we extended the warranty, to a full lifetime warranty against bending or breaking, in addition to our standard Fringe Sport full year satisfaction guarantee, with free returns. Not only do we stand behind our product, but we lift under them too. Whether that means using the Bomba bar daily at Fringe Sport headquarters (you’re invited to come in and workout with us anytime) or offering impeccable customer service. We strive to be your trusted workout partner and trainer. This bar amazes us (and so does our return policy) and if it doesn’t do the same for you, give us a call and we’ll make it right. Oh, and another thing, we’ll let you in on. When you order the Bomba bar, you get free shipping. We got you. Fringe it, or forget it.
