The Ohio Bar isn’t just one of Rogue’s most durable and versatile weightlifting bars, it’s also a direct reflection of the proud professionals who build it. From the 190,000 PSI steel to the distinctive dual knurl marks and four separate coating options, every detail of the Ohio Bar is held to the absolute highest standard—as you can see in the step-by-step process below.
Each Rogue Ohio Bar is machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, and includes a lifetime guarantee against bending**.
The bushing sleeves on the Ohio Bar promise a reliable spin, and their snap ring design maintains optimal stability throughout any type of weightlifting regimen-- from basic high school or collegiate strength training programs to intense Crossfit workouts.
Ohio Bar Coating Options You can select one of the following available coatings from the sidebar:
- Standard Black Oxide Treatment
- Black Zinc Plating with Bright Zinc Sleeves - Same zinc combination as the Rogue Bar
- Black Zinc Plating with Black Zinc Sleeves – Murdered out
- Satin Hard Chrome – Top of the line finish with more of a matte look than standard chrome
Version 1.1 - This is the first version of the Ohio Bar manufactured by Rogue
Version 1.2 - We upgraded the steel used in the shaft to 190,000 PSI tensile strength steel.
Whichever coating you choose, Rogue has provided some helpful tips for long term Bar Care & Maintenance.
**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.
