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.

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.

*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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite bar to WOD wtih I've had this bar for about a month and it is my far my favorite bar for Metcon's. The finish on it looks very sharp and the knurling is perfect as its bit aggressive which I like. I rarely have to use chalk on this bar as it grips so easily. I love the fact that it's stainless steel and I don't have to worry about it rusting as quick as the other bars which is worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels Amazing I bought this barbell for my home gym as it might be spending time in my garage and stainless steel is most weather resistant. The bonus is knurling with stainless just feels perfect in your hands. We have coated Rogue 2.0 bars at my gym which I always enjoyed, but this feels so much better. I absolutely recommend, and I am pretty sure you cannot get another quality stainless barbell anywhere near this price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1.5 year review This bar is my favorite item out of a large order. I haven't cleaned it once and it looks almost perfect still, if I cleaned it it would look brand new. Unexpectedly, I like not having a center knurl. You only need a center knurl for squatting with a shirt and shirts have no place in a home gym. I spent too much time debating on all the other options, this one requires no maintenance and can be used for everything.
