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 Long way to Dubai but I finally got my Ohio Bar It was a long way to Dubai and a couple of week for the delivery but I can't be more happy to have my own Stainless Steel Ohio Bar at home. Amazing piece of art and engineering at the same time. I would surely buy again from Rogue but hope you will soon showcase all your products in Dubai.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Grip and Finish Figuring it was about time to replace my old bar produced in China I've had for 30 years, I received my Rogue Ohio Bar today. The bar has a very good grip as the knurling and finish are excellent. Buyers should be aware, the sleeves are ribbed, not smooth as shown in the photos. Rogue should make this detail known within the description of this bar. Personally I would have preferred a bar without the ribbing as I always use collars and do not like the sound generated while sliding on the plates. Having said that, the ribbing is closely stacked thus the sound is greatly reduced. Overall pleased with this purchase and look forward to many year of training with my new Ohio Bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional quality and craftsmanship I've been doing CrossFit and Olympic Lifting for 2 years now, and just using the bars at my gym, which has an array of Rogue bars. I figured it was time to invest in my own, and the Ohio Bar, was worth the investment. The grip is impeccable, the thickness of the bar is just right, and the spin is perfect for squat cleans, snatches and a variety of movements. I would highly recommend investing in a barbell.
