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 one of two finishes: Black Zinc or Satin Chrome. Whichever coating you choose, Rogue has provided some helpful tips for long-term barbell care and maintenance.
Matt Chan Bar 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 2 Finishes: Murdered Out (Black Zinc with Black Zinc Sleeves) or Satin Chrome with Satin Chrome 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. Rogue has a replacement rate of less than 0.0002% on bars. We have found that most problems with bars we replace are related to abusive use rather than manufacturing or materials issues.
