The Fringe Sport 20kg Men’s Wonder Bar Olympic Barbell is a great option for budget buyers who are looking for a competent bar that can provide decent support for Olympic type lifts. With good spin and decent whip, it’s a no-brainer if you don’t need a specialty bar.


  • Excellent Price.
  • Free Shipping.
  • 28mm Shaft is perfect for Olympic-based movements.
  • Available in both bearings and self-oiling bushings.
  • Decent spin and whip.
  • Super strong 205,000 PSI


  • 28mm shaft isn’t for everyone.

The Fringe Sport Men’s Wonder Bar V2 20kg Barbell is a budget-friendly Olympic barbell that most home gym and garage gym owners will love. While it’s not the most top of the line barbell available, it’s a very competent piece of equipment put together by one of the industry’s most astute company’s when it comes to quality control and user satisfaction.

The barbell’s 28mm shaft is a bit thinner than other 28.5mm bars, a fact we like because we prefer a skinnier shaft for CrossFit training and Olympic movements. The knurling is not overly aggressive which means it’s not great for powerlifting but that’s typically not the point of a budget-friendly Olympic barbell.

Speaking of knurl marks, the Men’s Wonder Bar V2 20kg features dual knurling so you can find your perfect grip for bench presses, snatches, and anything in between.

Reviewers across the web have noted that the Fringe Sport Men’s Wonder Bar V2 20kg Barbell has surprisingly good spin. Fringe offers collars with both bushings and bearings. You’ll pay around $30 more for bearings and that’s an upgrade worth the additional cost.  We suggest bushings simply for their longevity. If you haven’t worked with bushings, Fringe Sport offers a self-oiling product that is sure to withstand the test of time. 

One excellent note is the high shaft PSI that reaches 205,000. If you’re keeping track, that’s 15,000 better than the more expensive Rogue Ohio Bar.

Finally, Fringe Sport offers a lifetime warranty against all manufacturer defects for the Men’s Wonder Bar V2 20kg Barbell.
