Stainless Steel Ohio Bar

The new stainless steel version of our 20KG Rogue Ohio Bar is machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, and features a 200K PSI tensile strength shaft, chrome sleeves, and an exclusive Rogue knurl pattern that’s 100% in its original, machined form for an unmatched feel.

With quality composite bushings and dual knurl marks, the Stainless Steel Ohio Bar is optimized for both Olympic lifts and Powerlifting—delivering a firm but non-abrasive grip, a consistent spin, and a unique balance of whip and rigidity.

We call it the Ohio Bar because we think it represents more than just the Rogue brand. It’s a testament to where we work, who we are, and the pride we feel in making the best American-made weightlifting bars on the market. To check out the same bar with zinc or black oxide finish options, see our standard Ohio Bar page.

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.

What Sets This Ohio Bar Apart:

  • 1200,000 PSI Steel

    This high tensile strength steel is manufactured in the USA and has proven to be one of the best steel variants for a multi-purpose barbell. Each barbell shaft is ground and polished prior to machining, allowing for a very smooth finish.

  • 2Machining

    Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio. A great deal of pride is built into each bar as the knurling process is an art. We spent months working on the knurl we believe to be the best for the Ohio Bar.

    To test the knurl it is more a beer tasting process than exact measurement. There is a look and feel that go into testing every bar.

  • 3The Look & Feel of Stainless Steel

    With no plating, the knurl on the Stainless Steel Ohio Bar is left exactly how we machined it, providing a great feel that cannot be achieved with other finishes. It’s similar to the knurl feel from a bare steel shaft, but with better corrosion resistance. The combination of a stainless steel shaft and chrome sleeves also creates a sharp look with few equals. Please Note: Rogue recommends using a synthetic bristle brush, NOT a steel brush, to clean a stainless steel shaft. Steel on steel can cause rusting over time. See more tips here: Bar Care & Maintenance.

  • 4Assembly

    The Ohio Bar is assembled with the same black composite bushings as the Rogue Bar 2.0, which act as bearing surfaces between the bar sleeve and bar shaft. This is a very robust way of building a barbell, and can produce a smooth, consistent spin not possible with lesser import bars. Each bar comes with an “Ohio Bar Card” that has the initials of the Rogue team member that built it.

  • 5Performance

    The multi-purpose Ohio Bar will have normal “whip” during Olympic weightlifting and enough stiffness to hold for heavy Powerlifting. The steel in this bar is proven as an excellent choice for weightlifters.

  • 6Fast Rogue Shipping

    Rogue prides itself on fast, professional shipping. If your bar is ordered by 3PM EST Monday-Friday, it will ship same day. Your bar will be packaged safely and ship fast. You can follow the progress of your order using the Rogue Shipping Tracker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality bar for my garage gym Great knurling (not too rough, not too light), low maintenance, high quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, great medium knurl, look, fit & finish Awesome, great medium knurl, look, fit & finish and overall feel. Sleeves DO have a very slight rib to them, in case you're into that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar I purchased the Ohio Bar a while back when initially re-outfitting my garage gym. I also went with stainless as I'm the only person using it and didn't want to necessarily have to stay completely on top of bar maintenance, etc. So far its been great. The knurl is really nice and with the stainless (close to bare steel) finish it just feels great in your hand. The spin on the collars is somewhere between okay and good. I'm doing limited movements that benefit from that so its sufficient for my needs. If you're doing a lot of olympic movements, etc maybe try to check one out before to get an idea and make sure its up to what you're looking for. When I got this bar I didn't really think the lack of center knurl was going an issue, but after a few months of linear progression and getting my squat weights up I found things a bit unstable on my back so I recently "upgraded" to the Ohio Power Bar which has now become my go-to bar. I still like this bar though and continue to use it for cleans and presses and could see swapping it in on occasion for other lifts. Had I planned things a little bit better I might have considered a Chan Bar (so if you're not familiar check it out), but think pressing might be a challenge with that due to the wider area before knurling starts. But no regrets, and personally I like stainless if you can swing it (and maybe if its not for commercial use given the f-scale stuff - but for you and/or a few friends at your home gym, should be great, especially if you take care of it)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite bar to WOD wtih I've had this bar for about a month and it is my far my favorite bar for Metcon's. The finish on it looks very sharp and the knurling is perfect as its bit aggressive which I like. I rarely have to use chalk on this bar as it grips so easily. I love the fact that it's stainless steel and I don't have to worry about it rusting as quick as the other bars which is worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic bar Have used this bar in the gym, for years and i'm glad i didn't go for a cheaper option for my garage setup. Amazing barbell, knurling is grippy, have barely touched chalk and i'm usually a chalk monster. The spin could be better but really no complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First, Last and Only Barbell I'll ever own This is immense. I considered getting the Ohio Black Zinc but feel investing in the Stainless Steel was definitely worth it. This will definitely last a lifetime. It's a beauty, with wicked knurling and can't find any fault. I've ordered the barbell cleaning kit too just to keep it in perfect condition. Definitely a lot of money, but you get what you pay for - and Rogue are the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels Amazing I bought this barbell for my home gym as it might be spending time in my garage and stainless steel is most weather resistant. The bonus is knurling with stainless just feels perfect in your hands. We have coated Rogue 2.0 bars at my gym which I always enjoyed, but this feels so much better. I absolutely recommend, and I am pretty sure you cannot get another quality stainless barbell anywhere near this price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1.5 year review This bar is my favorite item out of a large order. I haven't cleaned it once and it looks almost perfect still, if I cleaned it it would look brand new. Unexpectedly, I like not having a center knurl. You only need a center knurl for squatting with a shirt and shirts have no place in a home gym. I spent too much time debating on all the other options, this one requires no maintenance and can be used for everything.
