Rogue 28MM Training Bar - Cerakote

The Rogue 28MM Training Bar is designed, machined, and assembled at the Rogue factory in Columbus, Ohio using the same steel shaft and uniform knurl pattern as our Olympic WL Bar. In place of the Oly Bar’s bearing sleeves, however, the Training Bar is assembled with bronze bushings in the style of the Rogue Ohio Bar. The result is a more cost-efficient, intermediate bar for athletes who still want the look and feel of a competition-ready Olympic barbell.

The quality U.S. steel used in the 28MM Training Bar meets a minimum tensile strength of 215,000 PSI, and each shaft is individually tested for straightness to within 0.015” (0.38MM). The bar is available in a wide range of optional finishes, including a custom Cerakote colorway. This unique polymer-ceramic composite coating was first popularized in the gun industry for its durability in thin applications, and offers superior corrosion resistance over the life of your bar

Key Features of the 28MM Training Bar

  • 1Quality Rogue Construction

    Designed, machined, and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, the 28MM Training Bar is built to IWF specifications and Rogue’s own high standard, with a shaft tensile strength of 215,000 PSI. Each bar is machined and assembled from quality U.S. & EU steel and individually tested for straightness to within 0.015” (0.38MM). The shaft is ground and polished prior to machining for a smooth finish, and the knurling is carefully refined for a firm but non-abrasive grip. The use of reliable bronze bushings help produce a consistent “whip” needed for Oly training.

  • 2Cerakote Strength + Custom Colors

    This bar is now available in a custom Cerakote color finish. Cerakote is an advanced ceramic-based coating, originally established in the gun industry for its remarkable durability in thin applications. This unique finish can deliver superb abrasion/wear/corrosion resistance over time, and it’s available here in black and blue, with the Rogue logo across the center of the shaft (all sleeves have a black Cerakote finish).

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.

*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. Rogue has a replacement rate of less than 0.0002 on bars. We have found that most problems with bars we replace are related to abusive use rather than manufacturing or materials issues.

Rogue 28MM Training Bar - Cerakote is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar back by Outstanding Support This bar is exactly what I was looking for: a whipier bushing bar with sticky but not sharp knurling that I could use for front squats, deadlifts and Olympic movements. I only wish it came in stainless steel! The only issue I ran into was with the courier used to ship to Canada (UPS). The first bar arrived with a missing endcap and significant scuffs and scratches to the corresponding sleeve. I contacted Rogue and they didn't hesitate to send a replacement. Unfortunately, the replacement arrived in similar but better condition with one endcap missing. Again, Rogue was quick to offer a replacement or partial refund. I took the refund as I didn't trust that a third bar would arrive in any better shape. Rogue's customer service in this case was beyond expectations!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing for Olympic lifts I was previously using a barbell designed for power lifting but I needed to change it to do more olympic lifts. I absolutely love my training barbell. It makes the lifts so much easier. The knurling is very light, the way the bar moves is extremely smooth and accommodating. I honestly cant recommend this barbell enough, it is 100% worth the price and its also a very sexy barbell.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great look, great feel, lacking spin. It's a great looking bar, has awesome knurl, and a nice whip. I'm a little disappointed in the spin. I know it's not a bearing bar, but it's not really different than a typical metcon bar in terms of spin. My 7 year old Westside Power bar spins better which I don't think should be the case.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid training bar Knurling feels great. Was hoping it spun better. Would consider a boneyard bearing bar next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instant PR's Just started Oly a few months ago and went from a beat down commercial gym bar with worn knurling and massive diameter to the 28mm training bar (yes i took it in there) and went from a 265lbs clean to a 280lbs clean in just a few sessions. My snatch went from 175lbs to 190lbs as well. Great whip and exelent knurling. Also a great dead lift bar. Everyone who used it loved it. Great value.
