Rogue Ohio Power Bar - Cerakote

Our 29MM Ohio Power Bar is now available in a Cerakote finish, with a range of exclusive colorways to choose from. This unique polymer-ceramic composite coating was originally popularized in the gun industry for its durability in thin applications, and it offers up to 100x the corrosion resistance of standard black zinc.

Aside from the finish, the Cerakote Ohio Power Bar is manufactured to the same general specifications as the original model, combining a 205,000 PSI, zero-flex steel shaft with quality bronze bushings and a snap ring design for a smooth, consistent spin. The bar features single powerlifting knurl marks and center knurling, machined in a pattern that’s deep and coarse without being sharp or abrasive. This makes the Ohio Power Bar a perfectly honed workhorse for the bench, squat, and deadlift.

The 45LB Cerakote Ohio Power Bar is machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, USA, and currently comes in the four colorway options listed below. Note: The Rogue logo on each shaft is slightly off-center due to the center knurling.

KEY FEATURES OF THE CERAKOTE OHIO POWER BAR

1

Cerakote Strength + Custom Colors

This version of the Rogue Ohio Power Bar is distinct for its use of Cerakote, a ceramic-based coating commonly trusted by firearm manufacturers for its remarkable durability in thin applications. This unique finish can deliver superb abrasion/wear/corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc—and it’s available to order in a range of exclusive colorways, with the Rogue logo branded on the center of the shaft. See the menu for current color combination options.

2

Steel Shaft

The Ohio Power Bar’s 29MM diameter steel shaft boasts a tensile strength of 205,000 PSI, 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.

3

Aggressive 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.

4

Part of the Rogue Powerlifting Arsenal

Ohio Power Bar owners can use this barbell in conjunction with a broad range of other top caliber Rogue powerlifting products, from our power racks and squat stands to the Westside Bench, deadlift bar jacks, Wagon Wheel plates, and Calibrated Steel Plates.

5

Lifetime 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.

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.

Please Note: Cerakote has an excellent resistance to corrosion, but metal-to-metal contact, particular on the sleeves, can still cause wear over time. For the best long term results, some cleaning and maintenance may be required. See our Ohio Bar Care Page for more info.

Nice and Aggressive
I've been using this barbell for a couple weeks now and it's awesome. The aggressiveness of the grip is just right for me. Passive knurling makes my hands slip too much but this digs in nicely. I know my wife doesn't like it as much as she has softer hands. I have callused hands from work so it works great for a guy like me.

WOW! BLOWN AWAY! THIS IS A GAME CHANGER!
I debated on getting this bar for a while, I had a generic Olympic bar for the past 5 years and decided to upgrade my home gym. I was debating between the Ohio Bar and Power Bar. I went with the power bar for because of the center knurl and so happy I did! This bar is a game changer, didn't realize how bad my old bar was until I got the Ohio Power Bar. Do not hesitate to buy this folks, it is worth every dollar!

Great Bar, Poor Colour Representation
The knurl and construction on this bar is exceptional. As is to be expected with Rogue's quality. The bushings/lubrication is smooth, the bar is sturdy and stiff, which makes it feel great while lifting. My big complaint is the poor colour representation with the OD Green Cerakote. I have other OD Green items from Rogue, and the pictures don't accurately portray the final product. The Green you get is more of an earth-tone Green compared to OD. (Picture attached for reference). I would have ordered Red/Black had I known this was the case.

9 months in and the red cerakote is still perfect!
Been using this nearly everyday for 9 months, as have two of my garage gym buddies. The red still looks beautiful. A little oil and brushing and I can make it look perfect every time. The black sleeves take a beating but they still look good enough to me. I mainly use this bar for benching, shoulder press, squats, and bicep curls. It's a great bar. My only complaint is that the cerakote has a bit of a slippery feel at times. Not a big deal. When it feels that way I chalk up. I'm guessing that a bare steel bar has a warmer and grippier feel to it.
