How It’s Built

From the 190,000 PSI steel to the distinctive dual knurl marks and four separate coating options, every detail of the Ohio Bar is held to the absolute highest standard—as you can see in the step-by-step process below.

  • 1New 190,000 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 post any black oxide, zinc or chrome finish.

  • 2Machining

    Each bar shaft is machined on new Haas machines that are built in the US. 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.

  • 3Fit and Finish

    Bright Zinc and Black Zinc is a medium oxidization protectant process. This type of steel treatment requires minimal maintenance and is used on The Rogue and Bella Bars.

  • 4Assembly

    The Ohio Bar is assembled with bronze bushings which act as bearing surfaces between the bar sleeve and bar shaft. This is a very robust way of building a barbell.

    Each bar will come with an Ohio Bar card that has the initials of the Rogue team member that built the bar.

  • 5Performance

    This 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.

Each Rogue Ohio Bar is machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, and includes a lifetime guarantee against bending*.

The bushing sleeves on the Ohio Bar promise a reliable spin, and their snap ring design maintains optimal stability throughout any type of weightlifting regimen-- from basic high school or collegiate strength training programs to intense Crossfit workouts.

Ohio Bar Coating Options You can select one of the following available coatings from the sidebar:

  • Standard Black Oxide Treatment
  • Black Zinc Plating with Bright Zinc Sleeves - Same zinc combination as the Rogue Bar
  • Black Zinc Plating with Black Zinc Sleeves – Murdered out

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

*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 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 109.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this Barbell I got this bar a year and a half ago, and it's been a true work horse. It does every thing I need it to. Whether it's squats, deads, power cleans and anything strength related...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Bought this bar about a month ago and I absolutely love it. The knurling is perfect (for me anyway). Definitely the best all around bar I’ve ever used. Squatting, deadlifting, pressing, it’s great for all of it. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OWN YOUR OWN BAR - NEXT LEVEL TRAINING For 25 years I have trained in gyms. Using their equipment and really not thinking twice about the bar. This all changed about a month ago when I ordered the Ohio Bar. The trust I had on the aggressive tread for grip allows one to focus on the muscle being worked - zero slippage - unlike gym bars that are worn down. My garage WODs are now complete. I would also recommend going for the black oxide for the little extra. This bar has changed my game - Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Ohio Bar- awesome just received the bar . I benched one time. I think it is great in all areas . I chose The Ohio bar over the Texas Bar which is a great bar too. I look forward to many gains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from better bar, better workout My son has been getting stronger mainly on the dead lift. He said a better bar would make a difference and it did. It is worth the money if you are a serious lifter.
