Rogue Bar 2.0

This is the next generation of the 28.5MM Olympic bar that helped launch the revolution. Now fully machined and assembled at the Rogue factory in Columbus, Ohio, the Rogue Bar 2.0 represents the highest level of precision engineering with a wide range of new features—including a 190KSI tensile strength shaft, durable composite bushings, and CNC-machined groove sleeves with customizable color bands. Currently only available in black.

Like the original flagship Rogue Bar, Version 2.0 still offers convenient dual knurl marks for both Olympic and powerlifting, with a black zinc coated shaft and bright zinc sleeves. The addition of a groove in the sleeve enables athletes and coaches to more easily identify and differentiate bars by changing out the bands. The bar comes standard with Rogue-branded bands, but you can swap them out with any custom, personalized band that matches the dimensions.

The Rogue Bar 2.0 is among the first in our arsenal to use composite bushings—a self-lubricating material often found in hi-tech aerospace and agricultural equipment. For intense, high-rep training, these bushings dramatically minimize friction to both provide a reliable spin and help extend the shelf life of the bar itself.

The Rogue Bar helped us cement our reputation at the CrossFit Games and beyond, and we believe the Rogue Bar 2.0 is a worthy successor to that mantle.

**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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best all around bar I use bar mainly for olympic lifting and I love the knurling on the bar. It is a quality barbell at a more than reasonable price. I have had the bar for about 2 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from must buy This bar is bomb proof. Ive had it for about six months and have put it through the ringer; with no maintenance. I own two bars, one I acquired from a big gym and rogues bar; when it comes to dynamic lifting ill pick the rogue bar every time. Worth the investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What They Say It Is Our gym opened a year ago with 8 of these bars. They still look brand new, operate like brand new, and they get a ton of abuse. We love them and for the price they are probably the best deal out there

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth spending the money I have a Rogue Bar and a few cheap ones I got on Amazon. We all fight over the Rogue bar. I always thought a bar is a bar, why spend more. Lesson learned, you get what you pay for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well constructed bar! Great bar for the price. I received mine in the mail in less than one week and it was properly packaged with caps on both ends. It is a beautiful piece of equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality is quality is quality. Received my Rouge Bar yesterday. Took less than a week to ship from Edmonton to PEI. It was also packaged well with zero damage. The bar itself is a joy! The knurl feels amazing and the smaller grip diameter is the bomb! This bar is well worth the coin and I'll be shopping through these guys again. Kinda eyeballing the Bella bar for my lady now.....
