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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar! I’ve had this bar for about a month now and it has lived up to the hype. It oozes quality!! I see all these jack wagons on facebook dogging Rogue for not being able to get stuff but Rogue has been the only company that has notified me of in stock items. Didn’t take long for me to decide to go Rogue entirely. My experience with them has been great and the items that I have received so far have all been great quality with the Ohio bar leading the way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money... Worth the wait and the money. It’s not the most expensive bar, but it’s the one that all bars are measured against. Nice knurling and the finish is awesome. I bought this during COVID and couldn’t be happier with it. The gyms are still closed, but the gains are being made in my basement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THIS BAR I love this bar!! It looks great and feels great I am really glad I was able to get one when I did.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ohio Bar If they offered agressive knurling for this, then it would be almost perfect for a olympic bar. I don't really care for passive knurling for any Men's barbell. If you want a non center knurl and non aggressive knurling then this bar is for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great barbel, will get scratched easily You don’t want to put this bar on steel hooks, it got scratched instantly when I put it on my bench

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super barbell The best compulsive purchase I've ever made. Quality is above average as usual for all rogue products, this obviously won't be the exception. Don't hesitate to invest this money to have your barbell in home while this ridiculous virus pases away, you won't regret it now and after. It's a must for any home gym owner

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A+ I bought a full set up from Rogue. Only regret is not having done so sooner.
