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 125.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bar I’ve lifted I’ve lifted a lot of different bars in 7 years of CrossFit - all the bars at our box, bars in boxes across the US, and a lot of different bars at comps across Australia. This is the best bar I’ve lifted with!! The knurling is just right - I use about 1/4 of the chalk that I used to. The spin on the sleeves is great - barely feel any resistance on the turnover. The amount of bar whip just perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wouldn't hesitate to buy another! I've used $700 - $800 bars that don't work as good as the Ohio bar! The spin is really good & I can get under it with out issue. Feeling confident doing any Olympic lift is important and this bar installs confidence! I've also notice less soreness the day after. I attribute that to less effort getting under the bar. Awesome bar!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar for the price I love this bar. So much better to use for Olympic lifting than the basic bars we have in the gym

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, smooth, and versatile We own a small gym where we provide personal training to our clients between 15 and 80 years old. This Ohio Bar provides smooth and comfortable transitions with maxed out loads of bumper plates. It handles the 7'-8' drops with hundreds of pounds with ease. We, at Iron Body Fitness, recommend this product for personal and commercial use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I expected!! I purchased this bar and some bumper plates plus a squat stand for my basement gym. Nothing but quality...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bar! Bought recently for weightlifting movements and regular training handles great knurling aggressive enough to grip and rip those lifts the way you want to. One thing I didn't notice however is that's the coating does come off a little easier than expected but practically the Ohio bar is the best all around bar I've ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional quality and craftsmanship I've been doing CrossFit and Olympic Lifting for 2 years now, and just using the bars at my gym, which has an array of Rogue bars. I figured it was time to invest in my own, and the Ohio Bar, was worth the investment. The grip is impeccable, the thickness of the bar is just right, and the spin is perfect for squat cleans, snatches and a variety of movements. I would highly recommend investing in a barbell.
