Rogue Euro 28MM Olympic WL Bar

For the athlete who refuses anything but the best, this is your next Olympic barbell. The Rogue Euro 28MM Oly WL Bar is machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, using only top-tier European steel (215,000 PSI), with 10 sets of quality needle bearings, friction welded sleeves, and a center knurl. We’ve also updated the design with a new Cerakote shaft finish (in our Rogue High Gloss Clear) and Rogue branding to the right of the center knurl.

Before leaving the factory, each IWF-standard bar goes through our Rogue Work Hardening process, ensuring a minimum durability rating of F6-R on the F-Scale. Rigorous testing follows to guarantee absolute precision—from exact weight and straightness to the consistency of the bar’s whip and spin. No other Olympic barbell in the Rogue fleet, or in the industry, can call itself an upgrade over this one.

Key Features of the Rogue Euro 28mm Oly WL Bar

  • 1EU Steel

    At a minimum tensile strength of 215,000 PSI, the Euro Olympic WL Bar is among the strongest in the Rogue arsenal, but that’s not the only reason we chose this ultra-durable steel. Over years of testing, many weightlifters have found that the raw materials used in EU steel also help produce a greater whip during snatches and cleans. Each shaft is ground and polished prior to machining (to ensure a smooth finish), and individually tested and straightened to within 0.015” (0.38MM).

  • 2Friction Welded Sleeves + Needle Bearings

    Using a process from the worlds of aviation and automotive manufacturing, the chrome sleeves on the EU Olympic Weightlifting Bar are friction welded—creating a superior, forged-quality bond. This method is more precise than most joining techniques and helps prevent any changes in the integrity of the sleeve. Combined with 10 sets of top-quality needle bearings, the result is a barbell with a smooth, consistent, quieter spin.

  • 3New Cerakote Shaft Finish

    This version of the Euro Bar is distinct for its use of Cerakote, a ceramic-based coating commonly trusted by firearm manufacturers for its remarkable durability in thin applications. This unique finish can deliver superb abrasion/wear/corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc—and it’s utilized here in our Rogue High Gloss Clear, with the Rogue logo branded to the right of the center knurl in black. The sleeves still have their original chrome finish.

  • 4Precision Machining

    Every EU Oly Bar is machined in Columbus, Ohio, on new US-built Haas machines, and includes both Olympic knurl marks and a center knurl for extra “stick.” The knurling itself features a full, uniform pattern with a medium intensity that won’t shred up your hands. Rather than relying on visibility alone, each bar is also manually tested to ensure the actual “feel” is up to Rogue standards.

  • 5A New Addition to Your Rogue Arsenal

    As the leading manufacturer of American-made strength and conditioning equipment, Rogue offers a full collection of premium Olympic bearing bars and related gear. This includes the original Rogue Olympic WL Bar, the Cerakote Oly WL Bar, the Stainless Oly WL Bar, the Rogue Pyrros Bar, and the Russian Bar. You can also complement your new barbell with quality American-made plates, collars, and equipment storage systems.

*Warranty against bending does not cover any bar which has been damaged due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user. Negligent or faulty use includes abusive dropping of the bar (i.e., dropping the bar on a box, bench, spotter arms or pins in a power rack, excessive dropping with insufficient or damaged bumpers, or excessive dropping with iron plates, and similar usage). Any specific issues regarding a Rogue product with which a customer is not satisfied will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. We have found that most problems with bars we replace are related to abusive use rather than manufacturing or materials issues.

F Scale™
The F Scale™ is a durability scale for barbells based on functional testing at stresses similar to what barbells experience when being dropped from overhead. Bars that have been treated with Rogue Work Hardening (RWH™) are designated by having an R in their F Rating™. For more information on F Scale™ click here.

Oxidation Rate
The resistance of a barbell to oxidation depends on the type of steel and the coating. Barbells at the lower end of the spectrum will require more care and maintenance to preserve their appearance than barbells at the upper end of the spectrum.

Rogue Euro 28MM Olympic WL Bar is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knurling is perfect To those of you afraid to go with this bar due to the center knurling, don't be. It's not aggressive yet is really well done such that you can handle the bar well. Maybe the center knurling is less aggressive than the outer, I'm not sure, but it works out great and doesn't chew up your neck/clavicles/etc when receiving cleans or re-racking jerks. The SS Oly WL Bar might be the best overall bar Rogue offers, but this is probably the best barbell that Rogue offers with the center knurling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bar I decided to use up a few gift cards and buy myself a nice bar, I also have an old Froning Bar & Chan Bar. I'm not the best at snatch/C&J but figured I should upgrade to a pure OLY bar. As others have said it has a noticeable whip over 200lbs, excellent spin and even though the center knurl is passive, it still has a nice little bite to it. Bar is very smooth and you can feel the quality of it as you are lifting. Very impressed with spin,whip and overall quality of bar, compared to other Rogue OLY bars and competitors. Overall knurl isn't as aggressive as others I have used. Felt like it was a good price and looking forward to having this for years to come. If I had a minor complaint, it's the Rogue Branding to the right of the center knurl, just feels a little out of place

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Rogue WL Bar Got it over a 2 months ago and love it. Knurling is not as aggressive as i thought it would, especially the center (i can’t compare because its my first WL bar with center knurl). The side knurls fells like my rogue 2.0 bar and bella bar. The whip is very good when going over 200lbs The spin is excellent and is the best I ever felt in any bar ive tried. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a high end bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent barbell I've had this bar for two months and greatly enjoy it. The spin is excellent without overdoing it and the knurling is aggressive enough to hold on to while still being amenable to complex work. The whip is great and really starts to get going around 100-120 kg for jerk work. My only complaint is I wish it came in stainless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bar out there. This is the perfect bar. Amazing knurl and spin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly an excellent bar I purchased one of these bars through closeout and it has been exceptional. I have the opportunity to train with a Werksan training bar and I would say this bar is at least the equal to that one. The spin and whip on this bar is better while the knurl on that particular bar is slightly more aggressive (which I prefer). The differences are pretty minimal which is a testament to Rogue's quality. With a little chalk on either bar you are going to be good to go. This bar feels fantastic in hand and even better on lifts, particularly heavier ones. While you expect quality on any piece of equipment that has a higher price tag, this bar is honestly a bargain compared to some of it's IWF-certified competitors. If I had to choose one bar for Olympic lifting it would be this one. Buy one before the price goes up when an IWF sticker gets added.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure Excellence Decided to treat myself to this beautiful, exceedingly well-made piece of art and I am in no way disappointed. It's every bit the equal of a certain Swedish competitor, and I prefer the knurl on this to the cheese-grater knurl on that OTHER bar. :) Spins like a dream. Just buy it, you won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best American Made Bar! I received the Rogue Euro bar a couple of weeks ago and have had several sessions with it. Right out of the box, this is a beautiful bar. You can feel the quality and craftsmanship. It spins forever. I think the bar has plenty of whip. In fact, I hit a clean and jerk PR after a couple of sessions, and haven't PR'd that lift in months. I believe the feel, spin, and whip of this bar contributed to it. I lift in a barbell club hosted at a crossfit box, and we have several bars, including most of the usual suspects. The Rogue Euro is right on par with a certain Swedish manufacturer, but for a lot less money. However, the knurling is pretty different. The Euro's knurling offers plenty of grip, but without the cheese grater feel of the other bar. Also, the center knurl is pretty passive. There are other good American made weightlifting barbells, but I just know that Rogue will be around for a long time and take care of me if I have an issue (not that the others won't, but I know for sure that Rogue will be around). Plus, they recently entered a contract with USAW; I think to become their bar supplier at USAW events. Those things pushed me to Rogue. You won't regret purchasing this bar if you want to become a serious weightlifter.
