KEY FEATURES OF THIS OHIO BAR:

Loading
1

New 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 or black zinc finish.

Loading
2

Machining

Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio. 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.

3

Fit and Finish

Each Ohio Bar finish offers a different level of oxidization protection and has a direct effect on the feel of the knurl.

Black Oxide is a mild oxidization protectant process. This type of steel treatment will still require some maintenance but will give the best knurl feel, more like a naked bar.

Zinc is a medium oxidization protectant process. This type of steel treatment requires minimal maintenance and is used on The Rogue and Bella Bars.

The Ohio Bar is also available in Stainless Steel & an advanced ceramic-based coating called Cerakote.

Loading
4

Assembly

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.

5

Performance

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.

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.

Great Bar
Love the knurling, smooth rotation of the sleeves and the sleek look of the black zinc coating. I opted for the black zinc since this will be used in a closed garage with high summer humidity and cold winters in NJ, so hoping that the coating will extend life of bar. Arrived in heavy duty packaging with no damage to bar. Zero complaints after seven weeks of ownership, would purchase again.

most excellent bar
I had been eyeing this bar for far too long and once my gym closed due to CV19 I picked one up to replace a cheap bar I had picked up at Play It Again Sports and so glad I did. There's sometimes truth in the saying "you get what you pay for". Excellent quality bar at a good price point. I wish I could say I have used it a lot, yet after 2 years it looks pretty new.

My favourite everyday bar
Hands down the best bar I have ever used! for the things I'll be using it for it will suit every discipline that I will be throwing at it. From bench press to squats, dead lifts to clean and jerks I beleive I'm going to get years of good service out of this great bar. Rogue, thank you

Ohio bar
Nice bar. I use it for squat, bench, dead lift, and overhead press mainly. I think the spin is good, but isn’t a concern for me. American steel, you can’t go wrong.

Although rogue sent to the wrong address, I did receive my bar and it seems to be excellent quality minus 1 bar end “coin” arriving scratched. This bar is made in USA and should last a lifetime. So far, so good. Zinc seems to be holding up just fine. Nice knurling and comfy grip.

Black Zinc more like brown Zinc
I recieved the bar yesterday and the first thing I've noticed is that the Zinc coating is more like a brown instead of black...

Great product
Bought a few months ago and really enjoy using it for a variety of lifts. Perfect amount of kurl to not rip up my hands but still grip well. Nice to get back to barbell workouts since the quarantine resulted in no more visits to the gym.
