You might be asking yourself, how does this differ from other barbells?
If you're familiar with our Black Zinc Wonder Bars, they are our most cost-efficient Olympic barbells that we offer. The stainless steel version features all the same awesomeness as the original version but... you know...stainless steel and science and stuff.
Here's why a stainless steel barbell is all the rage.
Brief science lesson: Stainless steel is known for its corrosion resistance, particularly humid environments.
What does this mean for you?
If you have a home gym and live in a humid area a stainless steel barbell like ours may be your solution. You have the crisp, clean stainless steel look plus the added benefit of being tough on rust and corrosion now.
We can't bear seeing even a speck of rust on the Wonder Bar, so we care a lot about our athletes in humid climes. The dampness in Austin's air stifles us, so we can't imagine how wet the air in Houston and South Florida must be. If it's not the humidity that's a threat, then the chloride in the air is, for all our coastal dwellers in Fringe Nation. You now have a strong defense.
Wait but there's more...
Due to the superior nature of stainless steel, it doesn't require a coating that will interfere with the knurling's natural texture. We've kept our Venn diagram, sweet spot intersection of toothy and smooth, ensuring a quality grip.
Plus, it's a true 28mm diameter shaft that includes both ring markings for IWF and IPF.

"Spin me like one of your French girls..."
That's how that quote went, right? The needle bearing cartridges provide great spin, but may require oiling in time. For all you Olympic lifters out there, put this thing to work.
From Wonder Bar to Wunderbar
"I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."- Michael Jordan
We often wonder (no pun intended) about Fringe Fam. What keeps them persisting and persevering? What makes them so resilient? After all the setbacks, what keeps driving them to go on? The bumps, the bruises, the scars, the stains of failure mark them all. So we got to thinking about that...
You asked even though you didn't know. So we delivered a testament to your tenacity. We respect you and want to salute you and all your scars, stains and failures. In return, we offer you this pristine, stainless steel Wonder Bar. Everyone bears blemishes and imperfections, but that doesn't mean your bar has to.
This immaculate, stainless steel Wonder Bar now serves you as the perfect partner to your imperfect excellence. You and your stainless partner represent perfection in imperfection. Wabi sabi. Yin and yang. Tao. We twisted our blacksmith's arm to give you a stainless steel version of our flagship barbell and gift you with the ultimate reward for your hero's journey.
We already hear the roar of "wunderbar!" ringing out from Fringe Nation, rolling across the gulches, down the valleys and through Hill Country surrounding Austin. Hill Country enjoys a lot of German heritage, so it's no surprise fans have picked the German word that means "marvelous, wonderful, terrific, cool, or "exceptionally good" to describe the stainless steel Wonder Bar.
Prost to Wonder Bar
You'll be toasting to your Wonder Bar once you see how wunderbar it is in your hands. The stainless steel version features all the same awesomeness as the original version, plus the added benefit of being tough on rust now and looking gorgeous.
In Case You Didn't Hear
The Wonder Bar reigns as the nucleus of the barbell universe here at Fringe.

You can set world records on this bar, and use it for most training. If you're a seasoned athlete or an affiliate owner, consider stepping up to the Bomba Bar V2 (made in America) or even our Fringe Sport Weightlifting Barbell. Here are a couple of Wonder Bar features to be aware of:
- The 28mm shaft diameter is great for Olympic movements.
- The needle bearing cartridges provide great spin, but may require oiling in time.
- If you're new to lifting or building a home gym and need more info to learn what type of barbell works best for you, here's a helpful guide.
