  • 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 117.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing bar Since the gyms closed, it has been hard to find equipment. It took 3 weeks for me to order due to high demand "for good reason". Once I ordered it came in less than a week. Very good service and the bar is amazing. Cant say enough about fit and finish of the cerakote finish. My only complaint is I cant find bumper weights to go with it. Good time to practice form.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bar but Well balanced bar you can't be picky at this price range but for sweaty palms here it's hard to grip sometimes not as rough as I'd like I've tried many bars over the years I'd say is medium knurling whip is average not the best but like I said for the price it's perfect

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great All Around Bar I use this bar in my garage gym for a mix of oly work and crossfit style workouts. Does both very well. It seems durable as I've used it every day for a month and no signs of wear. This isn't a bearing bar so its not the greatest oly bar ever but it does have decent whip and feel. The knurling is moderate so it's good for wods. Happy with the purchase and worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Grip I bought this bar in anticipation of the gym closures and it's been perfect. It feels great whether I'm doing deadlifts, squats or bench press.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Love this bar, the quality really shows through in person. Great grip, idk what else to say. But I highly recommend it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice Bar, but constant rust issues I had a Chan Bar in black zinc for several years. Never had an issue with corrosion. When I saw the Cerakote finish I decided to add another bar. I bought red with bright silver sleeves. I’ve had the bar about a year and can’t keep rust out of the knurling. There are no chips or scratches on the finish and the rust has been coming up from below on the grips. Pretty disappointing and the spin on the composite bushings is not near as good as the brass on the Chan. Again, seriously disappointed in this product.
