The Rogue Bar is a polished 28.5 mm bar with no center knurling and both powerlifting and Olympic lifting knurling marks. This bar has the great understated knurling that has made Rogue bars famous. It features high quality bronze bushings for reliable spin, and will whip enough for use in Olympic Weightlifting.
The steel shaft is carefully coated with bright zinc then hit with a second black zinc coating that give the bar an old school chalky feel. There are no other bars like this on the market.

perfect all-around barReview by JeffMQualityI've had my Rogue Bar over 2 years and it holds up to abuse like a champ. Despite being in a garage (in humid South Carolina) for all of that time, it hasn't broken down at all. We use it for squats, presses, oly, etc. several times a week. Same story with our 15kg Bella Bar.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
I'm ruined for other bars nowReview by TedQualityI bought this on the recommendation of multiple folks on Rip's forum, even though I figured there couldn't be too much difference between this and the standard cheap bars I'd encountered at multiple gyms.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Oh, how wrong I was.
I would have paid twice the cost for something of this impressive quality. The knurling, the spin, the fit with the bumpers - everything that folks have said in previous reviews is true, and more directly, what they said is *important.* It makes a difference that these things are so much better. I can feel it when I lift. I cannot imagine going back to cheap bars after being exposed to this.
Thanks and kudos for creating such a great piece of work, guys.
Great all around barReview by PCCQualityWhat can't this bar do? After several hero workouts and SEALfit workouts, this bar holds true. I will pay the extra money for the quality.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Excellent QualityReview by BeiqueQualityThis bar is top of the line as to be expected from Rogue. Holds up great, feels solid, and looks beautiful. The knurl as almost all the other reviews state is purely awesome. I would definitely recommend this bar to anyone. I know it's pricey, but it's definitely worth every penny; that's the cost of quality and you won't regret your purchase!| Review for: The Rogue Bar
WOW, What a difference!Review by Eastside GymQualityI can't believe how much better this bar is compared to anything I have used before. Open up back account and invest in something that will last forever| Review for: The Rogue Bar
First Bar=extremely pleasedReview by DinoQualityI have used rogue beater bars at my local box and could not wait to have the Rogue Bar in my home gym, Fantastic bar. knurling is great and gives me great feel and grip on the lifts and I love the black zinc, Great products as always Rogue!| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Good barReview by ChrisQualityA good bar really does make a difference compared to the generic ones you get with weight sets. This bar has a nice grip, not rough at all, but still grippy, hard to describe. I was concerned with the lack of center knurl, but that does not seem to affect the squats at all. The bar is really smooth with lifts. very happy with this bar.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
I gave this a 4 star rating due to the packaging. my bar arrived with the packaging partly torn open on one end. as a result, there is a small nick on the end of one of the sleeves of the bar. It does not affect overall use, more of a cosmetic defect so I decided not to return it. Still a little disappointed that for the price paid, it did not come in the secure packaging other reviewers mentioned and it did get some damage as a result. Also some of the black zinc coating on the bar was alittle scratched as well, but again, that seems more cosmetic and does seem to affect the use of the bar.
Great performanceReview by RyanQualityBar has great performance/ feel. Had slight issue with some of the black zinc finish coming off after approx 6 months of hard use (this was during cleaning w/ WD-40) however performance and feel seem uneffected. A note the bar is in a garage gym in CT w/ frequent changes in humidity which Im sure is not easy on the finish. All in all for the price great bar.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Awesome BarReview by GeraroQualityThis was my first time ordering from rogue fitness. They did an awesome job of packing my Rogue Bar, it took me a while to open the packaging but it was worth it :P| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Love this bar!Review by CharlesQualityTo echo a lot of the other reviews, I have only had experience with globo gym bars and the hand-me-down bar that my dad got me 15 years ago. Getting this Rogue bar was so different than those other bars. Much easier to grip and just has a better feel. The best part is that all my new bumper plates fit perfectly, where as only about half fit on my other bar. I'm absolutely loving this bar so far and can't wait to use it more. Thanks Rogue!!| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Quite Amazing!Review by DB NichQualityI never realized there was a difference in a bar until getting this bar! It's so smooth! The knurling feels great and it's well balanced. After picking up my bar and picking up another bar in the gym... totally different! Highly recommend the investment!| Review for: The Rogue Bar
AwesomeReview by ChrisQualityI have used many bars throughout the years and I can't express enough how great this one is. The knurl is unlike any I've ever felt before and creates a very strong grip without being sharp at all. I researched bars for a few months before purchasing and I decided on this one even though it was a little outside what I wanted to spend. Definitely worth it. You may be thinking that you can get away with a 100-200 dollar bar for now, but I would highly advise against it. Those will undoubtedly bend, causing serious problems with heavy cleans/snatches/deadlifts and the sleeves will begin to rotate less as well. If you're on the fence, spend a little more to get this one and I promise you will enjoy for the rest of your life.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Product exceeded expectationReview by JackQualityThis bar truly shows the skills of the Rogue craftsman who engineered and materialized the bar. There is no doubt in my mind I will ever need a replacement from the lifetime guarantee. The knurling in the bar is sharp,but it is not like some olympic lifting bars that feel like a cheese grater when lifting. Buy with confidence !!| Review for: The Rogue Bar
All round beastReview by BenQualityRx'd Rogue bar 3 Months ago, so far it has suffered mountains of abuse on our platform including 200kg pulls and plenty of overhead drops after 100kg jerks. Simply chalk up, walk up and pull with confidence, great all round bar.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
AMAZINGReview by IvanQualityI literally just got this thing in TODAY... and boy, you can tell the difference in the bar. I had a piece of Sh*t China bar that I've had for quite some time now and I just decided to buy an AMERICAN bar. You can easily feel the difference in the two bars. The knurling is exactly how you would want it and it has a sick ass warranty.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Great equipmentReview by MikeQualityI'm not a Crossfitter, I've always lifted w Globo gym equipment and cheap stuff at home. When I opened this package at home, I was amazed. The quality of construction, spin, fit of the Pendlay Bumpers I also got was out of this world. It's going to take some getting used to lifting with a right diameter(smaller) bar than I'm used to, but this is one quality piece. Don't hesitate, get one!| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Worth every penny.Review by DJ Neal MoneyQualityIt took months of reaserch for me to make up my mind about what Olympic Bar to buy. I finally decided to get the Rogue Bar and I am not disappointed. The price is reasonable, the knurl feels good in your hand and the black zinc just looks bad ass.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Nice BarReview by DealQualityThis is a huge step up from the bars I have been using at my globo gym. Great grip and easy on the hands.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Nice BarReview by AllanQualityGreat all around bar for Crossfit. You can definitely notice a difference on this bar vs. some other cheaper/economy bushing type bars. Knurling is just right for grip w/o tearing your hands up. Bar diameter is also good and my grip feels solid with it.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
A comparisonReview by CasperQualityI have been lifting for more than a decade. I am accustomed to using Texas Power Bars. I recently set up a garage gym form myself and 2 training partners. I bought these bars because I am transitioning from powerlifting to CrossFit. At first these bars felt very different in my hands. The knurl was not as sharp at the TPB which I didnt like at first but have come to love it. This bar has a lot more give than a TBR so its taking some getting used with it bouncing a bit.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
All in all I really enjoy this bar.
Shocked by the difference a good bar makesReview by SteveinNCQualityBeen lifting for 21 years but only doing snatches, cleans and crossfitting for about 3 years. Until now, I always used the typical bolt on OLY bar and 310lb weight set. When the bolts froze in place, I started looking on the crossfit forum which led me to check out a rogue bar. Almost bought the beater bar, but was glad I called Rogue and was told to get the Rogue Bar. It was well worth the $274 which was more than my entire weight set w/ the other bar. the collars rotate so smoothly and quietly it's almost like an illusion. I ended up adding some bumper plates a few weeks later. During a recent workout, I had my Rogue bar loaded up for snatches and my old bar loaded up to thrusters. Just cleaning the thruster barbell up really emphasized how much smoother the rogue bar works. I wish I would have found crossfit, bought the Rogue bar and some bumpers about 20years ago!| Review for: The Rogue Bar
I also have a rogue pullup bar (the hanging rom the straps kind) and some rogue rings. The pullup bar is excellent. The rings are good too, but a little pitted from rust after 2 years in my garage.
I really like supporting a local, made in the USA business like rogue. The equipment is high quality and the service excellent. I don't mind paying a bit more for this. And a lifetime warranty - who offers that!
BeautifulReview by UberNewfQualityThis bar is beautiful. The only downside is that it feels so good when you pick it up, you might never want to put it back down. Buy this bar, you wont regret it.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
awesomeReview by donQualityHUGE step up from most globo gym crap! Great spin and grip. Used for a few weeks and I couldnt be happier.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
LoveReview by SethQualityI have a pair of Rogue Bars and a York Oly bar for my garage gym. I love my York bar, but it hasn't gotten much use since receiving my Rogue Bars. The knurling is very aggressive and takes a few days to get used to if you haven't had good, aggressive bars to use. The bar holds chalk well, but I haven't had to use as much because the knurling is so grippy as it is. You can't beat the Rogue Bar for the price, its my new favorite bar.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Great barReview by MattQualityI've had this bar for about 10 days now and used it for about 15 separate workouts. It's really a decent bar, i like the knurling quite a lot. Nothing negative to say| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Awesome BarReview by Sean GQualityThis bar is great. Have been using it for 4-5 months and am still happy I invested the money. Thanks for the great products.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Indestructible!Review by JakeQualityI've gone through three bars in the past year in my garage gym and I've been using this for about six months and it still seems brand new. I swear this thing is bomb proof! A must have for any Crossfitter!!| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Great BarReview by GarlonQualityi contemplated on getting a cheap barbell at the local stores until i shopped around online and came across this barbell. definitely worth the investment. the knurling feels great. the bar feels solid and is unmatched to other cheap bar.if your shopping for a barbell this is the bar highly recommend!| Review for: The Rogue Bar
nice...butReview by mrbrutaltruthQualityOkay… I like this bar. It does everything I ask of it. It seems to be very well constructed. I absolutely love the warranty and the fact that Rogue seems to stand behind its products. In fact, that is what persuaded me to buy this bar over the B & R bar. However, I have to say that after lifting weights for 3 to 5 days a week for the last 30 years I prefer a steel finish. It's hard to explain… It just seems like the rogue bar is sort of shiny and "painted." I know it is probably a much more sophisticated coating than I have described. But it does NOT feel like a steel bar. I work out in my home gym one or two days a week (with my new Rogue bar). I work out in my regular gym another one or two days a week. My regular gym has all Ivanko products. It would have been extra money, but if I had to do it over again I probably would've purchased an Ivanko Olympic bar. Or the B&R bar (didn't purchase that one because everyone was squawking about maintenance and rust and I live near the ocean).| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Awesome InvestmentReview by JayQualitySuch an amazing investment. The lack of center knurling is perfect for cleans, but it also makes thrusters and push press so much more comfortable. The knurling itself is much better than the bars at the gym I go to. And the black bar is just bad ass.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
I will be using this bar for my entire life.
The BestReview by Paul DQualityWe have tortured Rogue bars & bumpers everyday for years at my firehouse. They are the best. Buy them w full confidence. Go Rogue !| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Great choice for the roomReview by Coach EQualityI bought this bar for the high school weight room. What a great choice. Obtained 3 at first to see if they would workout for us. They worked out great, kids are battling over them. Nice spin and great knurling on these bars. We will be hopefully updating all of the rest of the bars in the room with the Rogue bar soon. Great product Rogue.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Great barReview by ShadowcatQualityMy first aftermarket bar. Well worth the $$$. Looks great, feels great, much better than anything I have had or used before. It's a keeper.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Awesome barReview by AndyMHQualityTried this at my CF box and had to have one after I broke my old bar. No center knurling means chest isn't getting mangled and it turns very smoothly. Awesome!| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Love itReview by EckQualityI upgraded to this bar a year and a half ago after starting crossfit with an el cheapo bar from Sports Authority. The difference is night and day. This bar feels solid, still looks as good after a year and a half of use as it did on day one, and it spins very nicely. I can't o-lift enough weight to really appreciate the flex, but as an average crossfitter who is far from an elite weightlifter, I can't imagine ever outgrowing the capabilities of this bar.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Best Grip FeelReview by JoelQualityTried a bunch of bars, but bought this one based on reviews. It is worth it! The feel is unmatched.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Quality is quality is quality.Review by SatisfiedQualityReceived my Rouge Bar yesterday. Took less than a week to ship from Edmonton to PEI. It was also packaged well with zero damage.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
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.....
Great multi-purpose barReview by JeffMQualityWe've had our Rogue Bar (and Bella Bar) for a year now, and it's perfect. It has been great for strength training, oly lifts, and Crossfit workouts. Takes abuse in the garage - I've done nothing in the way of upkeep - and holds up well. At this price, the Rogue Bar can't be beat.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Well constructed bar!Review by etQualityGreat 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.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Nice BarReview by The DudeQualityIs my wife better than yours? Got the rogue bar for xmas and have used it 3 of 4 days since. Nice spin and knurling. Has held up like a champ to this point.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Worth spending the moneyReview by AtleeQualityI 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!| Review for: The Rogue Bar
Exactly What They Say It IsReview by MattQualityOur 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| Review for: The Rogue Bar
must buyReview by jtoopsQualityThis 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.| Review for: The Rogue Bar
