Matt Chan Bar

An American-made barbell
 custom designed by Rogue Athlete Matt Chan. As a former
 firefighter and four-time Top 10 finisher at the CrossFit Games, Matt is a man whose opinions tend to carry weight around here.
 That’s why we invited him to come to Columbus and help us
 create a custom barbell that would combine the qualities of a powerlifting bar, and Olympic weightlifting bar.


The Matt Chan Bar is manufactured from the same quality U.S.
 steel as our Ohio Bar, with both powerlifting and Olympic 
lifting knurl marks. Matt added a passive center knurl to the bar. This knurling assists
 athletes who prefer a little extra “stick” when in 
the front rack position or back squatting, but it won’t 
shred the skin like more aggressive center knurls
 might.

Matt has also increased the distance between the outer
 knurling which allows for a wider
 stance on cleans and deadlifts without the knurling scraping the 
shins.

You can order your own custom Matt Chan Bar in Black Zinc for which Rogue has provided some helpful tips for long-term 
barbell care and maintenance.

Specifications:

  • Machined and Assembled in Columbus, OH, USA
  • Lifetime Guarantee Against Bending*
  • Diameter: 28.5mm
  • Dual Knurl Marks for O-Lifts and Power Lifts
  • “Passive” Center Knurl
  • Outer Knurling slightly more aggressive for easier hold during high rep barbell work
  • Available in Murdered Out (Black Zinc with Black Zinc Sleeves)

The recommended maintenance is to use a plastic bristle brush and mild detergent to clean the knurl. Next, wipe the bar down with 3-in-1 oil. Finish by removing any excess oil with a dry towel.

*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 Chan Bar is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Combination of Features I bought the Rogue Chan Bar almost two years ago and have not written a review because I wanted to give it some time. Initially, right out of the box, I was impressed with the overall quality, feel, and aesthetics. After two years of squats, deadlifts, bench presses, thrusters, etc. I can honestly say this bar has the best combination of features that I have even seen on a barbell. The extra distance between the knurling on either side of the bar is fantastic for deadlifts because you don't have the knurling scraping your shins. I've also been impressed with the smooth spin of the sleeves as well. The passive center knurling is a nice touch and doesn't scrape my back or neck when I am doing squats, thrusters, cleans, etc. I do clean the bar with oil regularly and although there is some discoloration, I see it as normal due to the hard use it endures and the sweat that drops all over it. I do apply Mil-Comm TW25B teflon grease every 6 months to keep the spin nice and smooth. It works very well and each sleeve spins forever it seems like. The knurling on the bar provides great grip but doesn't cut into your hands. After two years, I couldn't be happier and hope they keep this bar in production for a long time. I will probably buy another one in the future just because I like have two of everything...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not what I hoped Based on the stellar reviews I was so excited for this bar. After using for many months I can say it's just OK for me. In fact, I prefer the Beater Bar for power lifts over this. I was on the fence between the Rogue 2.0 and this bar and I wish I went for the 2.0. The knurl spacing doesn't work for deadlifts as it's too wide a grip. My opinion, the center knurl is almost non existent for squats. I've used the 2.0 at the local gym and the spin, knurl etc. is much better. I'll continue to use this for Oly lifts, which I don't do often, and probably go for the Ohio Power bar next. I just think this bar tries to be too much for too many activities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bar Ever!!! I love this bar so much. it is very nice have the two marks for different list. But most of all I love that when doing dead lift it does not rip my shins up. This was the main reason for buying the bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bar I got this bar as a Christmas gift 2015. I use this bar everyday for all my oly lifts, strength lifts and wod'ing. The knurling on the hands is aggressive, my buddy and I tape our thumbs, the center knurling is amazing! The center knurling is something you feel when performing cleans but no marks. Love it for heavy squats and front squats!! I do recommend this bar to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you are tall it's the only way to go! I've owned this bar for two years and it's still the only bar I want. I love the additional space other bars chew up my legs. The passive section in the middle sticks, but doesn't tear you up as advertised. Matt Chan and rogue made great modifications best bar for any crossfitter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch Bar Had mine for a little over a year now. Put it through all kinds of workouts and lifting and it's still a great bar and performs well. I love it's unique design. We even have an Eleiko bar at our gym and I don't think even it compares. Great bar Matt Chan and Rogue. Let's see a Chan 2.0 and I'll be the first to grab one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the bar. I have worked out at half a dozen different crossfit gyms before finally building my own. Honestly I went with the Chan bar because I used to go to his gym and I like Matt! I figured he wouldn't design a bar that didn't work well. Anyway, couldn't be happier, hands down the best bar I have ever used. Like everyone else says, the finish does wear down on the sleeves. Knew that going in so wasn't surprised to see it. Love the knurling. I have never used a bar that had the center knurling before, and it makes more of a difference than I thought it would. Bar spins forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GO TO BAR. I spent a lot of time deciding which bar I wanted to buy and finally decided on this one. Ummm great decision. I will probably get the bare steel ohio power bar at some point down the road as well. I picked this bar because it was the most unique and the special features really pay off. The width from the center knurl is perfect for my deadlift stance. Also it makes hand positioning easy as the start of the knurling is right were I need to be on rows, barbell curls, deadlift, close grip bench, etc, etc. The feel of the knurling is wonderful. It has great grip without tearing up your hands. I use hook grip often and this knurl tears up my thumbs much less than my old bar. I center knurl is super passive. Its basically non existent but will grab your shrt for back squats which I like. Over the past two months I have put some heavy loads on it. 700DL, 625S, 415B and it has held up well. I expected that it would however the 700DL bent my old bar. PS black zinc on the sleeves will NOT last long don't buy with the expectation that it will.
