Rogue 28MM Olympic WL Bar

Combining a new 215K PSI steel shaft with quality needle bearings and friction-welded sleeves, this latest version of the Rogue Olympic Weightlifting Bar ranks among the best in the industry for feel, durability, and performance. Each 20KG bar is machined and assembled in Columbus, OH, and includes an exclusive Rogue knurl pattern that's precision-cut for a firm grip without the sharpness or abrasiveness of many import bars.

We currently offer the Oly WL Bar in a Bright Zinc finish. A 15KG women’s version is also sold separately.

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.

Key Features of the Rogue Olympic WL Bar

  • 1215,000 PSI Tensile Strength

    Our Men’s Oly Bar is made exclusively from high-grade steel, producing a shaft with a minimum tensile strength of 215,000 PSI. 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). The goal is to create just the right amount of “whip” or “flex” needed for competitive Olympic lifting.

  • 2Friction Welded Sleeves + Needle Bearings

    Using a process from the worlds of aviation and automotive manufacturing, the sleeves on the Rogue 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.

  • 3Precision Machining

    Every Oly Bar is machined in Columbus, Ohio, on new Haas machines that are built in the USA. For the Olympic knurl marks, we experimented with several knurling patterns before choosing the full but minimally aggressive texture that top weightlifters responded to best. Rather than relying on visibility alone, each bar is then manually tested to ensure the actual “feel” is up to Rogue standards.

  • 4A New Addition to Your Rogue Arsenal

    As the leading manufacturer of American-made strength and conditioning equipment, Rogue offers a wide range of Olympic bearing bars and related gear. Along with the standard Men’s Oly WL Bar, we also offer a Euro 28mm Oly Bar (EU Steel and a center knurl) and the Women’s 25MM Oly Bar. You can also combine your bar with quality American-made plates, collars, and secure storage systems .

  • 5Fit and Finish

    The Oly WL Bar is currently available in a Bright Zinc finish. This bar is fitted with a machined stainless steel Rogue end cap, built with precision to finish the bar.

  • 6Fast Rogue Shipping

    We pride ourselves on fast, professional shipping, often with same-day turnaround times. Your bar will be packaged safely and efficiently, and you’ll be able to follow the progress of your order from our factory floor to your door using the online Rogue Shipping Tracker.

Rogue Olympic WL Bar is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought one from the boneyard! Man what a deal. I bought one of these from the boneyard. Super awesome. Spins really smooth on the bearings all the same specs as the standard bar. As a bonus in my opinion the boneyard is a raw shaft. Such a great feel you dont get from coated bars. If your on a budget and want an awesome Olympic bar get this one while they have them. Honestly I can only see (on my bar) a little bit of the knurling thats slightly and I mean slightly off. The knurling feels no different than my Castro bar and except for one little spot it looks no different. I am so glad I took a chance on this bar it exceeded all my expectation.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Comparable with Elieko and Uesaka bar I own a competition Uesaka, IWF certified Elieko and and Rogue zinc bar. Spin is as good as a Elieko and better than the Uesaka. Elieko has the best whip and tied with the Uesaka. Unfortunately, the zinc bar can't withstand the sweat of lifters and weather on the East coast. Therefore, involves frequent cleaning. My Elieko and Uesaka goes through the same abuse and does not need care except an occasional brush. THIS REVIEW ONLY APPLIES TO THE ZINC BAR

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good This is a beautiful bar, but the knurl is so passive its like holding nothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from American made, great spin, love the knurl... Bought myself the 28MM Olympic Weightlifting barbell in chrome with center knurl as a Christmas present. First, I really appreciate the packaging and Rogue's commitment to customer satisfaction. I've used it about four times...This bar is AWESOME!! Spin on this bar is out of this world. Knurl is perfect (for me) not too aggressive / nor too passive, just a little chalk and it grips just right. My main reason for buying the Rogue Olympic barbell was the lifetime warranty and it's made in the USA!! I would highly recommend buying this bar. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Rogue!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spins for days I just received my BF sales WL bright zinc with blue composite bushings. Spin is great, finish amazing and the BEST packaging I've ever received. unfortunately I was hoping for a more aggressive knurl. Prior to purchasing I reviewed all of the comments and spoke to Rogue as to which bar was the most aggressive. I was told the 28mm bars have the most aggressive knurl (Euro>WL>Training then all of the Ohio variants). Unfortunately, it's definitely on the passive side. I have yet to put it through its paces, and all of the reviews say that it's grippy and that chalk is not required, but I have some doubts; Time will tell. I'll be ecstatic to be proved wrong. In the end, I'm happy to have purchased from a great company with the best warranty in the business. I wish they would bring a travelling road show to major cities across Canada, that way I/we could touch/try/etc before making a decision. Otherwise, it's your best guess how things will turn out. Again, I'm delighted with everything except the depth of the knurling.
