MATT CHAN BAR

The Cerakote version of the Matt Chan Bar takes the key elements from the original design and introduces an assortment of new features, each selected with input from the CrossFit legend himself.

These changes include:

  • A new stainless steel shaft with a higher tensile strength of 200,000 PSI
  • Ultra-durable Cerakote color finish with photo-negative style Rogue and Chan logos directly on the shaft
  • Your choice of Black Cerakote or Chrome Sleeves

The Cerakote Chan Bar is manufactured in Columbus, Ohio, USA, and features black composite bushings, 16.40" of loadable sleeve length, and dual Powerlifting and Olympic knurl marks. As part of Matt’s customization, a center knurl is included for athletes who prefer a little extra “stick” when in the front rack position or back squatting. This center knurling is non-cerakoted stainless steel and passive in texture, so it gives a “true” feel without shredding the skin like more aggressive center knurls might.

Rogue Chan Bar - Cerakote Features

1

Co-Developed With Matt Chan

As a former firefighter and four-time Top 10 finisher at the CrossFit Games, Matt Chan is a man whose opinions tend to carry weight around here. We took great pride in bringing his original vision for a custom barbell to life several years ago, and we’ve gladly welcomed him back to Columbus to work on our design for this new Cerakote version, which we think is one of the coolest bars we've built to date.

2

New Cerakote Finish

The new Chan Bar is finished using a polymer-ceramic composite coating called Cerakote, which has been popular for years in the gun industry for its remarkable durability in thin applications. This advanced finish can deliver superb abrasion/wear/corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc—while also enabling much greater flexibility in color choices and design. Available here in a gun-metal grey, the finish creates a very unique look in combination with the stainless steel shaft. Customers can also opt for Black Cerakote sleeves (with chrome as the other option).

3

Rogue Machining and Assembly

Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio, with painstaking attention to detail. We assemble the Chan 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.

4

New Stainless Steel Shaft

By changing to a stainless steel shaft with this model, we’ve increased its tensile strength to 200,000 PSI, while also opening up a great new aesthetic dynamic with the Cerakote coating. Rogue and Matt Chan logos are now featured directly on the shaft in a photo-negative effect. These logos are placed on each side of the center knurl.

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.

*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.

Cleaning: The recommended maintenance is to use a plastic bristle brush and mild detergent to clean the knurl. Next, wipe the bar down with 3-in-1 oil. Finish by removing any excess oil with a dry towel. See more: Rogue Barbell Cleaning Kit

Great Bar
Excellent excellent bar. The knurling is definitely more than the Ohio bar but less than the power bar… it’s perfect. The knurling is move 2” in on each side from what I can measure. Although I think this is probably an unnecessary feature… it actually ends up being really nice. Setup is much quicker and you avoid smashing yourself. The pictures don’t do the samurai head and rogue label justice. They look niiiiice. The Center knurl is VERY passive. Adds just enough for back squats. Bar came packed REALLY well and no damage. Great job Chan and Rogue.

The Ultimate Multipurpose Barbell
This is hands down the best bar I've used! When compared to the Echo, SS Ohio Bar, Cerakote Ohio Power Bar and several others this is by far the best and most literally the only straight barbell you'll ever need! The widened knurling makes the worlds difference when it comes to deadlifts, RDLs and even most oly lifts for protecting your thighs and hips on impact. The knurling itself is right in between the Ohio and Ohio Power bar. The passive center knurl is perfect for the front rack position, gives enough tack to stay put but not enough to scar you up. Provides plenty of grip for heavy back squats as well. Functionally it's been awesome and the fact that its SS with a Cerakote layer just means it'll probably last me a lifetime. Only downside is that the sleeves barely rotate on arrival, maybe 2-3 slow rotations before stopping. Should be resolved after I finally decide to take a peek under the sleeves.

All rounder
Spent forever tossing up whether to get the Chan 1.2 or the OPB. I have a home gym and never used a premium bar before. Super happy with siding with the Chan (although I see myself still getting an OPB in the future). Slight amount of whip for the deads which I like and still can move through the oly movements with the passive centre knurling. The knurling itself is quite grippy, no need to chalk at all. It’s worth every cent and looks unreal. The sleeves have maintained their coat also (although only had it a few months) when it has been getting used daily. Legendary stuff Rogue. Now… just stock some machined deep dish plates for Australia. Ta.
