  • 1EU Steel

    At a minimum tensile strength of 215,000 PSI, the Euro Olympic WL Bar is the strongest in the Rogue arsenal, but that’s not the only reason we chose this ultra-durable steel. Over years of testing, many weightlifters have found that the raw materials used in EU steel also help produce a greater whip during snatches and cleans.

  • 2Friction Welded Sleeves

    Using a process from the worlds of aviation and automotive manufacturing, the sleeves on the Euro Oly Bar are friction welded—creating a superior, forged-quality bond. This method is more precise than most joining techniques and helps prevent any changes in the integrity of the sleeve. Combined with 10 sets of top-quality needle bearings, the result is a barbell with a smooth, consistent, quieter spin.

  • 3New Polished Chrome

    The Euro Oly Bar is built to IWF standards and includes both Olympic knurl marks and a center knurl. The knurling itself features a full, uniform pattern with a medium intensity that won’t shred up your hands.

    If you’re looking for the pinnacle of American-made Olympic bearing bars in the industry right now, this is it.

Rogue Euro 28MM Olympic WL Bar

For the athlete who refuses anything but the best, this is your next Olympic barbell. The Rogue Euro 28mm Oly WL Bar is machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, using only top-tier European steel, with 10 sets of quality needle bearings, friction welded sleeves, and a polished chrome finish. Before leaving our factory, each IWF-standard bar goes through a rigorous testing process to ensure absolute precision—from exact weight and straightness to the consistency of its whip and spin. No other bar in the Rogue fleet, or in the industry, can call itself an upgrade over this one.

*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.

Euro 28MM Olympic WL Bar is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Quality! Received my Oly bar over a month ago and it's perfect. The knurl is "on point!" Just got into Olympic Lifting through an Olympic Lifting class at my box (South Orlando Crossfit) two years ago. I set up a home gym mostly a garage/patio set up and with a homemade built Olympic platform. It's my second Rogue barbell to compliment the Rogue 2.0 barbell I've had about a year. It spins smooth and grips tight with little or no chalk. Enjoy training with a few buddies when we want to do only Olympic lifting. Worth every penny and made in the USA! Thanks "KW" at Rogue for the assembly and quality checks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly an excellent bar I purchased one of these bars through closeout and it has been exceptional. I have the opportunity to train with a Werksan training bar and I would say this bar is at least the equal to that one. The spin and whip on this bar is better while the knurl on that particular bar is slightly more aggressive (which I prefer). The differences are pretty minimal which is a testament to Rogue's quality. With a little chalk on either bar you are going to be good to go. This bar feels fantastic in hand and even better on lifts, particularly heavier ones. While you expect quality on any piece of equipment that has a higher price tag, this bar is honestly a bargain compared to some of it's IWF-certified competitors. If I had to choose one bar for Olympic lifting it would be this one. Buy one before the price goes up when an IWF sticker gets added.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from World class. I'll echo all the pluses mentioned by reviewers here and in other places like YouTube. This bar easily equals or surpasses any bar I've owned or used in 50 years of lifting which is probably everything out there and some stuff that's no longer made. I have suggested to Rogue that they consider an even more passive center knurl. A minor issue for me only because I have a large adams apple which is always in contact with the bar in the rack position. Probably doesn't affect too many people. Lots of reviewers have concerns that the potential service life of this bar is still an unknown. There's something to be said for that. In my experience, equipment's longevity depends as much on how it's used and maintained as it is the quality of construction. I'm sure that for every bar of any make that's been around for 20+ years, there are others of the same brand that were trashed within a couple of years. Equipment that's relentlessly abused isn't around for long. Doesn't matter what company made it. I have no doubt that a fair share of these Rogue EU bars will be around for a long time. Kudos to Rogue for world class products and customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great American Made Bar! Rogue created another outstanding barbell and this time it rivals some of the big dogs in the WL market. My first impressions of the bar could not be much higher. I have rated the barbell on the following – look & feel, spin, whip, and overall performance (standard review stuff). Look & Feel – This is a beautiful barbell! The polished chrome has a nice shine to it and really stands out against other finishes. I typically lean towards zinc finishes but chrome was the only option. I may become a convert to chrome given how good this bar looks. I knurl is a little softer than I expected but I think that is because I expected a more “Eleiko” like knurl. That said, the knurl has a great feel and you wont have to worry about the bar slipping around. Spin – The spin is crazy on this bar, much better than any bar I have personally worked with. I like a free spinning bar so the spin is perfect IMO. The spin is quiet, smooth, and consistent. Whip – The whip feels good. I really don’t know what else to say other than it’s evident that they used quality steal to get the “ideal” amount of whip out of the bar. It is steady and smooth. Performance – This is by far the best bar I have used. I know there are higher priced bars out there but this is more than enough bar for my use. I don’t think you will find a bar of this quality for this price anywhere else. It feels great and I look forward to many years of use. A couple other things… I looked at a few other brands and they all make quality barbells but I decided on Rogue for a couple of reasons. The deciding factors came down Rogues reputation and past experiences with them. They create top notch equipment and stand behind their products unlike any other company out there. Finally, the last thing I want to point out is the packaging of the barbell. It was packaged and protected very well. The bar arrived perfect out of the tube. I have seen some other company’s barbell packaging and Rogue makes getting the bar to their customers a priority.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bar Lifting on this bar for just about a year now. Very happy with the purchase. Incredible feel, whip, and spin. Mild rust in the "grip" areas (snatch and clean) would be my only minor complaint. The knurling is ideal, spin is flawless, and whip is excellent. I wouldn't trade it for any high end bar and I think I've lifted on them all at this point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure Excellence Decided to treat myself to this beautiful, exceedingly well-made piece of art and I am in no way disappointed. It's every bit the equal of a certain Swedish competitor, and I prefer the knurl on this to the cheese-grater knurl on that OTHER bar. :) Spins like a dream. Just buy it, you won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth it I've had this bar for a few months and still get excited when I get to use it. I've used the expensive brands in the past and this bar absolutely holds up just as well. The feel is perfect and whips exactly as it should. I would recommend this bar to anyone looking for a new Olympic bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snatch Bar... I love this bar more than anything. I use this bar mainly on snatch. The center knurl will eat my neck up but it has amazing amount of whip. I love this bar to death!
