  • 1Cerakote Strength + Custom Colors

    This version of the Ohio Bar is distinct for its use of an advanced ceramic-based coating, originally established in the gun industry for its durability in thin applications. This unique finish can deliver superb abrasion/wear/corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc—and it’s available to order in a range of exclusive colors, with the Rogue logo branded on the center of the shaft. See the menu for current color combination options.

  • 2190,000 PSI Steel

    This steel is manufactured in the US 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 which allows the bar to have a very smooth finish.

  • 3Machining & Assembly

    Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio, with painstaking attention to detail. The knurling has been carefully refined over the years, as well, for a firm but non-abrasive grip (there is no center knurl). We assemble the Ohio Bar with a snap ring design and quality composite bushings, which act as bearing surfaces between the bar sleeve and bar shaft, producing normal “whip” during Oly weightlifting but enough stiffness to hold for heavy powerlifting.

*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.

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.

The Ohio Bar - Cerakote is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 103.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great in hand I bought about a month ago and it has been perfect. I'm doing the starting strength program its great for all the major lifts. I had a poorly made bar that bent prior to this. This should last me for life. I train in a barn in GA so humidity is an issue. Hoping the cerakote helps to keep this bar from rusting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Quality is UNREAL Bought this to use in my home gym and have to say it hits all the marks. If you’re wondering if this bar is worth it, the answer is yes. Stop thinking about it and order. You won’t find a more quality built bar than this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome power bar I really love this bar. The center knurling helps with the friction on my back during squats, the red color that I picked helps with mental check on form - i do pause and take a quick inventory of the form due to this color (this is highly personal I know). The cerakote finish makes it maintenance free, I do not have to worry about rust due to humidity in my basement. Knurling is just right - not too aggressive, but strong enough to deadlift without chalk. Looks great loaded on the power rack and stored on the wall rack. Strongly recommend.
