Additional Key Features of the Freedom Bar - 28.5MM

  • 1Cerakote Strength + Custom Colors

    This version of the Ohio Bar is distinct for its use of an advanced ceramic-based coating, originally established in the gun industry 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 available to order in a range of exclusive colors, with the Rogue logo branded on the center of the shaft. See the menu for current color combination options.

  • 2190,000 PSI Steel

    This steel is manufactured in the US and has proven to be one of the best steel variants for a multi-purpose barbell.

    Each barbell shaft is ground and polished prior to machining which allows the bar to have a very smooth finish.

  • 3Machining & Assembly

    Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio, with painstaking attention to detail. The knurling has been carefully refined over the years, as well, for a firm but non-abrasive grip (there is no center knurl). We assemble the Ohio Bar with a snap ring design and quality composite bushings, which act as bearing surfaces between the bar sleeve and bar shaft, producing normal “whip” during Oly weightlifting but enough stiffness to hold for heavy powerlifting.

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.

*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.

Please Note: Cerakote has an excellent resistance to corrosion, but metal-to-metal contact, particular on the sleeves, can still cause wear over time. For the best long term results, some cleaning and maintenance may be required. See our Ohio Bar Care Page for more info.

Rogue Freedom Bar - 28.5MM is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 311.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic knurl No matter what I do with this bar, the knurl is perfect. It's super grippy without causing pain or digging in too much. I will say the cerakote rubs off super easily on the sleeves (I got red with black sleeves), no matter how careful you are. Unless you have a bunch of Echo bumpers with their super smooth chrome insides, this won't stay black. Additionally, I made sure to buy sandwich j-hooks to protect the red cerakote, and I do notice a tiny bit of red residue on the plastic of the j-hooks, so I don't think cerakote is for you if you want a perfect finish that is also durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous, sturdy, inspiring. It’s greet, but I don’t get to use it much since my son and his friends always use it! The shine and rich knurling are so tough, fine, and cool... The bar just makes your work with it seem more quality. Needs to be displayed in gym to brag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ohio bar I don’t have much to compare too, but the bar is great. Feels like a good heavy bar like the ones at my old gym. Doesn’t have any cons that I read about on other cheaper bars. Def a great bar for my new home workout station!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect bar Love this bar. 1. The cerakote looks freaking amazing. I went with the black shaft and chrome sleeves 2. Rogue logo in the middle makes it easy to position your body in the middle of the bar for squats, bench, deadlifts, etc. Definitely an improvement over the bare steel bars. 3. This bar just fails amazing in your hands. Knurling is PERFECT. Very grippy without tearing up my hands. Going back to the knurling on my other gym equipment just feels painful in comparison, even with lower weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ohio Bar - Cerakote Perfect all around barbell...works well for all CrossFit style lifting. I also like the feel of the Cerakote...smooth but can still feel the knurling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar! Couldn’t be happier with this bar. I do 75% powerlifting and 25% Oly and it’s great for both. The Cerakote is grippy without being too sharp of a knurl.
