The Ohio Bar - Stainless Steel

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 weightlifting bars on the market.

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.

*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.

Whichever coating you choose, Rogue has provided some helpful tips for long term Bar Care & Maintenance.

The Ohio Bar - Stainless Steel is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from OHIO Bar Love the bar! The dual knurling marks are great for Oly & powerlifting. Not the harshest knurling on the hands but just enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Geezer Gym I decided to upgrade my garage with Rogue equipment and couldn't be happier with my choice. I am 56 years old and finally decided to upgrade to a higher quality, nicer looking gym. All I need now is a couple horse stall matts and I'll be good to go. This will make an excellent geezer gym. Zero commute time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome versatile Barbell I bought this barbell about one and a half month ago. Tested it with various kind of exercises including Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting and crossfit. I really like this barbell for its versatility. The 28.5mm diameter is great. You can fill the difference with an IWF barbell (28mm) when deadlifting and when practicing olympic lifts. Finally, the stainless steel is awesome. It makes you feel similar as a pure steel barbell without coat! Definitely worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding bar I've been working out for over 45 years and have used many olympics bars, including the old York bars. The stainless steel version of the Ohio bar is the best overall bar I have seen or used. A little industrial looking with a slightly more aggressive knurl than most others. Well-balanced and just one sharp looking bar. My favorite, hands-down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still Going Strong I've had my Ohio bar since 2017. It's been a fantastic all around bar for my weightlifting needs and goals. It is very versatile and I am comfortable doing crossfit like exercises as well as general strength training.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best feel! This bar just feels good. I went with stainless steel bc I want it to last forever and I have a home gym in garage. The bar just feels great. Like the grip is very good but it doesn’t hurt or anything like that just great. I am very pleased with the bar. It looks great besides being extremely functional. They should send directions on opening the package it comes in! There are videos online that were helpful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Bar I bought this bar almost a year ago. Have used it for a year as the only Barbell in my home gym. I use it for everything; traditional powerlifting movements, landmine (not in a base so I don't damage the sleeve), curls, light Olympic movements, etc. The stainless steel finish is amazing. The feel of the bar is fantastic. Grip is great. The knurl is grippy but not uncomfortable. I rarely feel the need to chalk with this bar. I haven't had any corrosion. Maintenance is really minimal. The chrome finish on the sleeves is unblemished so far (but only used in home gym). The Ohio bar is a nice compromise as it is good at everything but not as focused on one area as a power bar or Olympic bar.
