The Ohio Bar - E-Coat

The latest variation of our flagship Rogue Ohio Bar introduces a new, Black E-Coat shaft finish. This electrically applied coating was first popularized in the auto industry for its reliable coverage, adhesion, and corrosion resistance, and it’s gained even wider favor for its environmental benefits, producing little to no HAPS (Hazardous Air Pollutants) or VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds).

Like all Ohio Bars, the E-Coat model is fully machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio. It includes a 190,000 PSI tensile strength shaft, dual knurl marks (no center knurl), and bright zinc sleeves. The hybrid knurling pattern offers a firm but comfortable grip on both Powerlifts and Oly lifts, while a snap-ring design, quality U.S. steel, and bronze bushings help produce the perfect balance of rigidity and natural whip.

  • 1Rogue Machining and Assembly

    Made with pride in Columbus, Ohio, the 20 KG Ohio Bar has been put to use for years in home gyms; high school, collegiate and pro training programs; CrossFit gyms; military bases . . . anywhere athletes are concerned with quality. Each 190,000 PSI tensile strength steel shaft is ground and polished prior to machining to ensure a better finish, and the dual knurl marks are carefully refined for a firm but non-abrasive grip. The snap ring design, bronze bushings, and quality U.S. steel help produce an ideal combination of the consistent “whip” needed for Oly lifts and the ample rigidity required for heavy powerlifting.

  • 2E-Coat Finish

    The black electrocoat, or E-Coat shaft finish on this Ohio Bar is an electrically-applied paint coating noted for its excellent corrosion resistance, cost efficiency, and green benefits. It has been widely adopted by leading manufacturers for the finishing of auto parts, metal stampings, fasteners, lawn/garden & agricultural equipment, military equipment, and much more. E-Coat finishes stand up to water, sunlight, and household chemicals, and they are compliant with the environmental safety standards of the RoHS, OSHA and EPA.

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. We have found that most problems with bars we replace are related to abusive use rather than manufacturing or materials issues.

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

The Ohio Bar - E-Coat is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar! The knurling is perfect and won't shred your shins. Quality and workmanship are top notch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Bar (E Coat) Compared to my Brother In Laws Zinc Powerbar its not as grippy and a little bit slicker but not detrimental at all. I am still able to pull heavy deadlifts. All other lifts are fine. Knocked off a star because the E Coat was applied fairly evenly but had a couple of spots it did not take on, maybe a prep issue from the factory. Otherwise it holds up well to hard racking and incidental scratches that is metal on metal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied I knew what I was getting and I am happy with the bar. I prefer something with more knurl and the coating makes it slippery. overall it is a great all around bar and a good option on a budget.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great bar but very slippery in the hands Received the bar quickly and I was super excited to put it through its paces. Finish and quality of the manufacturing is unmatched and it feels good in the hands. As I began my first workout, my hands began to slip on the bar. The knurling seems to be less aggressive than what I was use to due to the e-coat. Once I get sweaty, my hands slide all over the bar. I am hoping that the more I use it the better the grip will become but I don’t use it as much as my other bars so it will take some time. Don’t get me wrong, this is a great bar to add to your gym, just understand you may have to concentrate on your grip more than you might like.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Standard Ohio bar I bought this product because the E-coat picture makes it look like the ends are gun metal. Much to my dismay, when I opened the packaging I found that the ends were just silver like a standard barbell you would find in any gym. Other than the picture being deceiving, it's a rogue bar you know the quality you are getting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable Knurling This bar is easy on the hands and has the strength to handle heavy weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality I didn’t think I would notice the difference a better quality bar can make but this made it clear. It’s a really excellent bar and the knurling is perfect for my grip. Definitely a great deal for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Less rust Seems to be rusting less than my other Ohio Bar. Works well and have been lifting more than ever
