Rogue Euro 28MM Olympic WL Bar
Certified By The International Weightlifting Federation

For the athlete who refuses anything but the best, this is your next Olympic barbell. The IWF-certified Rogue Euro 28MM Oly WL Bar is machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, using only top-tier European steel (215,000 PSI), with 10 sets of quality needle bearings, friction welded sleeves, and a center knurl. A unique Cerakote shaft finish (in our Rogue High Gloss Clear) offers great corrosion resistance and a sleek look. Our latest design also now includes Rogue and IWF branding on both the shaft and the endcaps.

Before leaving the factory, each Euro Oly Bar goes through our Rogue Work Hardening process, ensuring a minimum durability rating of F6-R on the F-Scale. Rigorous testing follows to guarantee absolute precision—from exact weight and straightness to the consistency of the bar’s whip and spin. No other Olympic barbell in the Rogue fleet, or in the industry, can call itself an upgrade over this one.

Key Features of the Rogue Euro 28mm Oly WL Bar

  • 1IWF Certification

    The Rogue Euro 28MM Oly WL Bar has been recognized at the highest levels of competition through its IWF certification. In the strength world, IWF approval is like the equivalent of a restaurant getting its Michelin stars, so we’re proud to include a new IWF Cerakote logo on the shaft of the latest Euro Bar, along with additional IWF branding on the endcaps.


  • 2EU Steel

    At a minimum tensile strength of 215,000 PSI, the Euro Olympic WL Bar is among the strongest in the Rogue arsenal, but that’s not the only reason we chose this ultra-durable steel. Over years of testing, many weightlifters have found that the raw materials used in EU steel also help produce a greater whip during snatches and cleans. Each shaft is ground and polished prior to machining (to ensure a smooth finish), and individually tested and straightened to within 0.015” (0.38MM).

  • 3Friction Welded Sleeves + Needle Bearings

    Using a process from the worlds of aviation and automotive manufacturing, the chrome sleeves on the EU Olympic Weightlifting Bar are friction welded—creating a superior, forged-quality bond. This method is more precise than most joining techniques and helps prevent any changes in the integrity of the sleeve. Combined with 10 sets of top-quality needle bearings, the result is a barbell with a smooth, consistent, quieter spin.

  • 4Cerakote Shaft Finish

    This version of the Euro Bar is distinct for its use of Cerakote, a ceramic-based coating commonly trusted by firearm manufacturers for its remarkable durability in thin applications. This unique finish can deliver superb abrasion/wear/corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc—and it’s utilized here in our Rogue High Gloss Clear, with the Rogue logo branded to the right of the center knurl and the IWF logo to the left. The sleeves still have their original chrome finish.

  • 5Precision Machining

    Every EU Oly Bar is machined in Columbus, Ohio, on new US-built Haas machines, and includes both Olympic knurl marks and a center knurl for extra “stick.” The knurling itself features a full, uniform pattern with a medium intensity that won’t shred up your hands. Rather than relying on visibility alone, each bar is also manually tested to ensure the actual “feel” is up to Rogue standards.

  • 6A New Addition to Your Rogue Arsenal

    As the leading manufacturer of strength and conditioning equipment, Rogue offers a full collection of premium Olympic bearing bars and related gear. This includes the original Rogue Olympic WL Bar, the Cerakote Oly WL Bar, the Stainless Oly WL Bar, the Rogue Pyrros Bar, and the Russian Bar. You can also complement your new barbell with quality plates, collars, and equipment storage systems.

*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.

F Scale™
The F Scale™ is a durability scale for barbells based on functional testing at stresses similar to what barbells experience when being dropped from overhead. Bars that have been treated with Rogue Work Hardening (RWH™) are designated by having an R in their F Rating™. For more information on F Scale™ click here.

Oxidation Rate
The resistance of a barbell to oxidation depends on the type of steel and the coating. Barbells at the lower end of the spectrum will require more care and maintenance to preserve their appearance than barbells at the upper end of the spectrum.

Rogue Euro 28MM Olympic WL Bar is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Rogue WL Bar Got it over a 2 months ago and love it. Knurling is not as aggressive as i thought it would, especially the center (i can’t compare because its my first WL bar with center knurl). The side knurls fells like my rogue 2.0 bar and bella bar. The whip is very good when going over 200lbs The spin is excellent and is the best I ever felt in any bar ive tried. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a high end bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bar out there. This is the perfect bar. Amazing knurl and spin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly an excellent bar I purchased one of these bars through closeout and it has been exceptional. I have the opportunity to train with a Werksan training bar and I would say this bar is at least the equal to that one. The spin and whip on this bar is better while the knurl on that particular bar is slightly more aggressive (which I prefer). The differences are pretty minimal which is a testament to Rogue's quality. With a little chalk on either bar you are going to be good to go. This bar feels fantastic in hand and even better on lifts, particularly heavier ones. While you expect quality on any piece of equipment that has a higher price tag, this bar is honestly a bargain compared to some of it's IWF-certified competitors. If I had to choose one bar for Olympic lifting it would be this one. Buy one before the price goes up when an IWF sticker gets added.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure Excellence Decided to treat myself to this beautiful, exceedingly well-made piece of art and I am in no way disappointed. It's every bit the equal of a certain Swedish competitor, and I prefer the knurl on this to the cheese-grater knurl on that OTHER bar. :) Spins like a dream. Just buy it, you won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For serious only lifters I have had the bar for close to a year now. If you are serious about weightlifting but don't want to pay 800 bucks or more, than this is your barbell. The knurling is awesome. A very good investment. I do not regret buying this at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snatch Bar... I love this bar more than anything. I use this bar mainly on snatch. The center knurl will eat my neck up but it has amazing amount of whip. I love this bar to death!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth it I've had this bar for a few months and still get excited when I get to use it. I've used the expensive brands in the past and this bar absolutely holds up just as well. The feel is perfect and whips exactly as it should. I would recommend this bar to anyone looking for a new Olympic bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bar Lifting on this bar for just about a year now. Very happy with the purchase. Incredible feel, whip, and spin. Mild rust in the "grip" areas (snatch and clean) would be my only minor complaint. The knurling is ideal, spin is flawless, and whip is excellent. I wouldn't trade it for any high end bar and I think I've lifted on them all at this point.
