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 Perfect I have a few bars and the cerakote bar is defiantly my favorite. It looks great and wears well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and feels amazing I love this bar....motivational and super feel. Top quality like everything I get from Rogue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As always, incredible craftsmanship built to last Like everything Rogue makes, this bar is phenomenal in every respect. It arrived well packaged, almost too well packaged; I puzzled over the tube for about half an hour before finally getting a handhold on the tearaway portion and extricating the bar. I've used the bar consistently for about a month now. The whip is excellent, and the cerakote finish is much more durable than the black oxide finish I had on a previous barbell. I strongly recommend the upgrade. The navy color hits the spot. It's understated but gorgeous, and it looks great hanging in my apartment. For staple gear like this, don't bother looking at the competition. Rogue makes the best stuff, and this is more of the same—well worth the price, and then some.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar Like this bar a lot, like the quality of the bar and how well it’s made. And one of the best things about this bar is it’s made in the USA, thanks Rogue for another great product.
Date published: 2021-04-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from No issues Solid, no issues. Bar and sleeves have scratches after a moderate amount of use. Unsure if cerakote upgrade is worth it. Overall solid, may save some money and opt for the black zinc instead.
Date published: 2021-04-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny After reading hundreds and hundreds of reviews, after looking at several different barbell sellers, I bought the stainless steel Ohio bar from Rogue. I like first that the barbell was made in America. Second, I don’t think you can beat stainless steel. This is the best all around bar for the cost. My only suggestion would be to add a passive center knurl, similar to the Chan bar. It has exceeded all my expectations. I have zero regrets with my choice.
