  • 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 85.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't ask for more Cerakote finish is holding up great using outdoors and looks pretty sweet too. Knurling is perfect for my liking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding, but sleeves easy to scratch This barbell is outstanding in almost every aspect. I've only found one negative issue: the sleeves are very very easy to scratch when inserting/removing plates (my barbell is red, with black sleeves). They get scratched from the very first workout. But well, aside from that, everything is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Performer The bar feels and performs as well as it looks. I don't have anything negative to say about it. It's well worth the money. Buy it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent knurling I picked a Rogue bar because I knew it would be top quality. I was surprised that it’s also the most comfortable barbell I’ve ever used. I prefer a less aggressive knurling and the Ohio bar hits the sweet spot. It was a great addition to our garage gym and absolutely worth the price — this thing is a tank.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought 3 of these I bought these bars for a Cross Fit style class that we run. I didn't fully understand the difference that a quality bar could make until we received these. Absolutely love these bars and will be purchasing more in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bar!! As a powerlifter my local gym bars are all different in weight and even bent and stiff bars. This bar is absolutely amazing and I love the bar whip, makes the weight feel lighter. I'll never go back to a stiff bar again. Plus the red and black looks sick!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted I use this bar in a garage gym. Four of use use the bar several times a week. The color is what I expected. The bar is comfortable and has a nice bend. So far no one has any complaints.
