The Rogue Bar

The Barbell That Launched a Revolution.

The Rogue Bar was one of the original products we built our reputation on, and it remains a proud centerpiece of the Rogue brand.

Used in the past four CrossFit Games, this weightlifting bar features Rogue’s trademark, dual knurl marks for both Olympic and powerlifting, a hybrid knurling pattern, and no center knurl.

The polished shaft of The Rogue Bar is finished with a unique combination of bright zinc and black zinc coatings, giving it a classic, old school look and feel. Additional refinements include high quality bronze bushings for a consistent spin and a snap ring sleeve design guaranteed to keep the sleeves in place for the life of the bar. The Rogue Bar has a moderate amount of whip for use in weightlifting movements, and is built strong enough to come with a lifetime warranty against bending.

To get a better sense of what sets a quality, American-made barbell apart from the competition, check out some of the recent Rogue Bar reviews shared by customers under the “Reviews” tab on this page.

**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.

Great Bar, and even better Customer Service

Review by Ben

Using the Rogue Bar at my box has spoiled me: There's no way I was going to buy anything else. When I got the package, there was damage to the packaging, and sure enough, a mark on the bar. I emailed the team at rogue, and not four hours later they've gotten back to me and offered to replace it. And on a Friday night, nothing less. You can't beat service like that.

perfect all-around bar

Review by JeffM

I'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.

I'm ruined for other bars now

Review by Ted

I 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.

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 bar

Review by PCC

What 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.

Excellent Quality

Review by Beique

This 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!

WOW, What a difference!

Review by Eastside Gym

I 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

Good bar

Review by Chris

A 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.
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 performance

Review by Ryan

Bar 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.
