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 Incredible All-Around Bar When building my home gym for CrossFit training, I'm not sure I researched any one piece of gear as extensively as I did with this bar - being on a budget, I needed to find a good all-around bar that I could use for both olympic and power lifts and that would last me for a long time and this bar far exceeded my hopes. I can't make a single complaint about it - the bar has an incredible feel to it unlike any other barbell I've ever used that provides excellent grip without ripping up my hands, and has an EXTREMELY high level of precision and craftsmanship. As an aesthetic object, this bar really is beautifully made and the ability to select a color, etc. really adds a personal touch to it. Can't recommend this bar enough - there are cheaper one's out there, but this one is totally worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar well built Just received this bar in orange and black. It is very nice! Unlike other bar I’ve owned, this one is well built and won’t bend and will withstand a lot of weight without any give. I absolutely love it. Pretty pricey but definitely worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MY GO TO BAR I have the Ohio Power Bar stainless steel which is amazing, but I decided to get the Ohio Bar stainless steel because of the 28.5 mm and I also like the whip. I like it for bench and occasional squats although it has no center knurl. The knurl is good, but I do prefer the aggressive knurl of the Ohio power bar. I went stainless steel as I didn't want high maintenance or rust, but most importantly I wanted no coating on it for optimal grip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent investment, high quality I did a LOT of research for which bar to get. I decided the motto buy nice not twice was how I was going to furnish my gym. That being said I'm a therapist so I'm not a rich lady, but I decided the barbell was something I wasn't going to compromise on. I'm so glad I got this bar. I got the stainless steel ohio bar. I decided between this and a couple other Rogue bars as well as the Texas Power Bar. Rogue's reputation of outstanding quality and the knurling on the bar was what swayed me to buy this bar and I love it. I'll have this bar the rest of my life. I lift six days a week - outside the pandemic it'll be 4/5 days a week - my main routine involves squats/deadlifts/barbell rows/bench. This bar is excellent. I use cast iron plates and have no problems whatsoever throwing over 200 lbs onto the bar. It feels good to use and honestly I might just stay single forever because touching this bar gives me more than enough satisfaction, hah! Seriously, buy this bar. It's worth the extra money for a good bar if that's the staple of your gym and you won't have to buy a new bar ever again except if you want to - but you won't need to with this bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stainless steel bar The bar is awesome. The knurl grips and feels good in my hands. I use it for most all my lifts.
