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.

The Ohio Bar is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 99.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the bar started to rust immediately I purchased a black oxide Ohio Bar and it was delivered less than a month ago. Functionally the bar has a great feel, good spin, and good whip. I love using it. That said, it is already showing rust. The black oxide coating is the least rust resistant according to Rogue support. Be aware that the cool look it has is extremely short lived and then you need to do weekly maintenance on it. I had it a month and had used it maybe five times before I felt and saw the rust spots. I still would recommend this bar I would just recommend going with the less expensive zinc coating or with one of the more expensive coatings. The ohio bar is going to work awesomely but be super ugly after a few years and require LOTS of maintenance.
