Eleiko Unveils First Competition Collar Certified By the IPF, IWF, and WPPO

Eleiko, a leader in strength sports equipment, has announced the release of a new type of competition collar. This innovative collar is the first to receive certification from all three major strength sports federations: the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF), the International Powerlifting Federation (IPF), and World Para Powerlifting (WPPO).

Eleiko says their new collars enhance the lifting experience for athletes, loaders, and staff by providing a single, precision-crafted collar certified for training and competition. They are easier to handle, minimize interference during lifts, and protect equipment from wear.

Manufactured in Halmstad, Sweden, from machined-recycled EU steel, the collars are designed for precision and lasting performance, backed by an industry-leading 10-year warranty.

Eleiko Collar Key Features

Eleiko lists the key features and performance enhancements of the collar as follows:

A proprietary TPE ring compresses and rotates, securing the connection between the bar flange, plates, and collars, reducing wear and dampening noise.

The knurled tightening wheel and TPE ring provide superior clamping force, ensuring a firm lock that minimizes plate shifting when the bar is dropped. 

An indexed locking lever stays firmly in place, with a slimmer profile and concentrated center of mass, minimizes interference with lifts and sleeve rotation.

The redesigned locking lever system distributes clamping force evenly across the bar sleeve, reducing potential wear. 

Knurling on the lever and tightening the wheel, combined with sandblasted grip contours, offers an improved loading experience. 

Erik Blomberg, CEO of Eleiko, said, “We are pleased to work with the IWF, IPF, and WPPO to create the first collar certified by all three major sports federations. These new collars…high-performance products with sustainably sourced materials and details that improve the lifting experience.”

The collars have appeared on the world stage throughout the 2024 IPF World Classic & Equipped Powerlifting Championships in Austin, TX. Eleiko provided these new collars not only on the competition platform but also on every single warm-up platform.

Over 800 athletes participated in the 11-day competition, so the new collars were extensively tested before the launch and well-received by both the athletes and the loading crew.
