Rogue 45LB Ohio Power Bar - Bare Steel

Fully machined and assembled in Columbus, OH, the 29MM Rogue Ohio Power Bar features a 205,000 PSI steel shaft, single powerlifting knurl marks, and center knurling. The bar’s knurl pattern is deep and coarse without being sharp or abrasive, and the 29MM shaft diameter and high tensile strength result in little to no flex or whip. This makes the Ohio Power Bar a perfectly honed workhorse for the bench, squat, and deadlift.

The 45LB Ohio Power Bar includes bronze bushings, a snap ring design, and 16.25" of loadable sleeve length.

Please Note: Like any fine piece of machined steel, a bare steel barbell will require some upkeep. Occasionally brushing the bar down with 3-in-1 oil or WD-40 will create a beautiful patina look. This is how bars were made for decades and it really does produce an unmatched feel.

Key Features of This Ohio Power Bar:

  • 1205,000 PSI Steel (200,000 PSI For Stainless)

    The Ohio Power Bar’s 29MM diameter steel shaft boasts a tensile strength of 205,000 PSI (200,000 PSI for Stainless), delivering superior rigidity and virtually zero whip/flex. Machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, the bar also features a snap-ring design and quality bronze bushings for a smooth, consistent feel.

  • 2Aggressive Knurl

    The bar includes single powerlifting marks and a center knurl, each featuring a deep, coarse pattern that produces a reliable grip / stick without being sharp or abrasive. Perfecting this knurl pattern is both a science and an art. Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus on new Haas machines (built in the USA) and fine-tuned and personally tested by the Rogue team.

  • 3Bare Steel Finish

    The Bare Steel creates a classic look and natural feel, the Zinc option (black shaft, bright sleeves) provides excellent corrosion resistance, and the Stainless Steel variation (with Chrome sleeves) strikes a balance between the two. Depending on the look and feel you prefer, there is a version of the Ohio Power Bar right in your wheelhouse.

  • 4Use It With These Other Rogue Products

    Ohio Power Bar owners can use this barbell in conjunction with a broad range of other top caliber Rogue powerlifting products, including the R-3 Power Rack, deadlift bar jacks, Wagon Wheel plates, and Calibrated Steel Plates.

  • 5Lifetime Warranty

    The Ohio Power Bar’s quality construction is backed by Rogue’s Lifetime Warranty against bending. This is a barbell equipped for high intensity, everyday use.
    *Please Note: The warranty does not cover damage due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user, 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.

  • 6Fast Rogue Shipping

    Orders placed by 3PM ship the same day. The Rogue Shipping System allows you to track your order from the time you place it to the time it hits your door. Order today, track today.

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.

Please Note: Like any fine piece of machined steel, a bare steel barbell will require some upkeep. Occasionally brushing the bar down with 3-in-1 oil or WD-40 will create a beautiful patina look. This is how bars were made for decades and it really does produce an unmatched feel.

*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.

Rogue 45LB Ohio Power Bar - Bare Steel is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thing of beauty! Received the Roque Ohio Power Bar Bare Steel version a couple months ago. It was perfect out of the tube. If you have any appreciation for metal work, this bar will impress you. It is aesthetically gratifying just to look at. The knurl was aggressive compared to my no name bar, but it feels firm. I drive a desk and my hands aren't tough at all, but I didn't have any problems (my DL and squat are in the mid 300's). I workout in a temperature controlled basement and oil the bar more than it needs (once a week). Am looking forward to the old school patina in a few years. This bar makes me better because I'm happy with it and it will last longer and heavier than I will.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bar I've ever used The knurls on the bar are a bit aggressive but I love that. Makes not having to use chalk when deadlifting and I love the middle knurl to grip my shirt when squatting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! I love the feel of the knurl. I have cerakote and ecoat ohio bars and strongly prefer the overall feel of the knurl on the bare steel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bare Steel - Beware! The bar is fantastic. Let’s get that out of the way first. As others have said, the knurling is perfect (very aggressive) with the center knurl helpful for squats. I just regret getting the bare steel version for my humid garage gym in Georgia. If anyone has suggestions for preventing rust, I would love to know because mine started rusting almost immediately even with wiping it down, brushing it, and applying some 3-in-1 oil. Again, great bar but probably not a good idea for humid conditions. My stainless steel power bar looks great (purchased at same time).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bar on Earth Better bar than any gym bar I have ever used. No fancy coatings. Just bare steel. Perfect knurling and 29mm grip is the best I have ever felt. Center knurl to grip your shirt during squats is a must. This power bar has everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar, quick shipping. Super happy I went with this bar over others. The knurling is aggressive, which I really like for all lifts including squat, bench, and deadlift. Shipping was also quick. Thanks!
