WHAT SETS THE CERAKOTE FINISH OHIO BAR APART:

1

Cerakote Strength + Custom Colors

This version of the Ohio Bar is distinct for its use of an advanced ceramic-based coating, originally established in the gun industry 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 colors, with the Rogue logo branded on the center of the shaft. See the menu for current color combination options.

2

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.

3

Machining & Assembly

Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio, with painstaking attention to detail. The knurling has been carefully refined over the years, as well, for a firm but non-abrasive grip (there is no center knurl). We assemble the Ohio 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.

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.

Huge upgrade for my barbell
Upgraded my basic barbell to the ohio bar a couple of months ago. Have used the ohio bar for several months now and the quality and durability is top notch. Huge difference and well worth the upgrade!

Great quality with a huge BUT..!
Overall the building quality is great, making this product an excellent multipurpose oly bar by meeting all needs. However, there is a huge BUT in the game. The cerakote sleeves have already began peeling of with just 2 months of mild and very careful use at home! So if you are a person of aesthetics, loving your homegym equipment as your “precious” you should consider before buying this bar. Personally I believe it’s a shame for a bar costing about 500€ (tax + shipping included).

Second bar now the favorite
Bought the Cerakote Ohio Bar so I could have a second bar for convenience. The bar arrived two days ago and now I may never use my first bar again. First thing I noticed is my plates slide on/off so much easier and don’t stick like my first bar. The knurling on the Ohio bar is perfect and along w/ the Cerakote provide a better grip than my first bar. No more sliding grip w/ sweaty palms. First bar was a previous recommendation from Garage Gym Reviews. A good mutliuse bar but definitely not the same level as the Rogue. Tempted to order another Ohio bar and sell the first bar….

Love the ROGUE Bar!
We have been using this bar in our home gym for over a month now and it’s great! We use it specifically for bench press, and skull crushers (not deadlifts or anything where it may get slammed to the floor.) It works great and looks good in blue. The bar itself seems to be slightly smaller in diameter than our other (not ROGUE, olympic) bars, but that’s okay.
