Matt Chan Bar

The Cerakote version of the Matt Chan Bar takes the key elements from the original design and introduces an assortment of new features, each selected with input from the CrossFit legend himself. These changes include:

  • A new stainless steel shaft with a higher tensile strength of 200,000 PSI
  • Ultra-durable Cerakote color finish with photo-negative style Rogue and Chan logos directly on the shaft
  • Your choice of Black Cerakote or Chrome Sleeves

The 28.5MM Cerakote Chan Bar is manufactured in Columbus, Ohio, USA, and features black composite bushings, 16.5” of loadable sleeve length, and dual Powerlifting and Olympic knurl marks. As part of Matt’s customization, a center knurl is included for athletes who prefer a little extra “stick” when in the front rack position or back squatting. This center knurling is non-cerakoted stainless steel and passive in texture, so it gives a “true” feel without shredding the skin like more aggressive center knurls might.

Key Features of the Cerakote Chan Bar

  • 1Co-Developed with Matt Chan

    As a former firefighter and four-time Top 10 finisher at the CrossFit Games, Matt Chan is a man whose opinions tend to carry weight around here. We took great pride in bringing his original vision for a custom barbell to life several years ago, and we’ve gladly welcomed him back to Columbus to work on our design for this new Cerakote version, which we think is one of the coolest bars we've built to date.

  • 2New Cerakote Finish

    The new Chan Bar is finished using a polymer-ceramic composite coating called Cerakote, which has been popular for years in the gun industry for its remarkable durability in thin applications. This advanced finish can deliver superb abrasion/wear/corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc—while also enabling much greater flexibility in color choices and design. Available here in a gun-metal grey, the finish creates a very unique look in combination with the stainless steel shaft. Customers can also opt for Black Cerakote sleeves (with chrome as the other option).

  • 3New Stainless Steel Shaft

    By changing to a stainless steel shaft with this model, we’ve increased its tensile strength to 200,000 PSI, while also opening up a great new aesthetic dynamic with the Cerakote coating. Rogue and Matt Chan logos are now featured directly on the shaft in a photo-negative effect. These logos are placed on each side of the center knurl.

  • 4Rogue Machining and Assembly

    Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio, with painstaking attention to detail. We assemble the Chan 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.

  • 5Standard Knurl with Passive Center Knurl

    Carried over from the original Chan Bar, a center knurl is included for athletes who prefer a little extra “stick” when in the front rack position or back squatting. This center knurling is non-cerakoted stainless steel and passive in texture, so it gives a “true” feel without shredding the skin like more aggressive center knurls might. The bar also includes dual knurl marks for Powerlifting and Oly lifting, with the outer knurling spaced further apart to allow a wider stance on cleans and deadlifts without the knurling scraping the shins.

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.

  • Choice of Black Cerakote or Chrome Sleeves
  • Black Composite Bushings
  • F Rating: F2

Cleaning:The recommended maintenance is to use a plastic bristle brush and mild detergent to clean the knurl. Next, wipe the bar down with 3-in-1 oil. Finish by removing any excess oil with a dry towel.

*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.

Rogue Chan Bar - Cerakote is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 97.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waiting years to get this I bought this bar for my husband who has been talking about it for years! It made for a really great birthday. He loves that he doesn’t beat up his shins with this bar during deadlifts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING! Absolutely loving this bar so far! I mostly use it for benching and occasionally throw some CrossFit workouts in with it. I also do deadlifts and this thing handles anything you throw at it. As a bonus, this black cerakote bar is beautiful. The finish can come off a little but not as dramatically as some of these reviews might lead you to believe. You’ll LOVE this bar!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing design Amazing barbell. Great knurling, center knurling is perfect and the knurling being off set a couple I cha from normal bars makes deadlift and Olympic lifts so much nicer on your chins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent All Purpose Bar I have owned this bar for about 2 months now and really enjoy it. I purchased the version with chrome sleeves because I was concerned about wear on cerakote sleeves. I think that the knurl on this bar if very good. It is not overly aggressive and you can do higher reps with it, at the same time the knurl is adequate for heavy deadlifting. I like the fact that the diameter of this bar is 28.5 vs 29 on the power bar and I was worried that a power bar may be too aggressive. I also wanted a bar with a center knurling for back squats which this bar does have. The center knurling is not very aggressive though so it is still good for shoulder presses. My only improvement or wish is that Rogue would offer this bar with stainless steel sleeves that way I would not have to worry about any sleeve finish wear or corrosion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Everything bar, its pefect I have had this for about 4 months now, I held off on a review as I wanted to really use the bar to understand and scope its use. This is by far the best bar I have ever used, whether it be at home or a commercial gym. I use it for the main lifts: Squat/Bench/Deadlift and everything in between. There is nowhere where this bar doesn't excel at. I will probably buy another one just because they are that great. Did I mention it looks stunning? I got the all black one and even use the Rogue iron deep dish plates on it, it has not compromised the sleeves at all. The absolute perfect bar, well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite bar, I use it for everything! As soon as I opened up the box I was impressed. Now that I have been using it for a while I am still impressed. I originally thought I would be using this bar for deadlifts because of the spacious knurling, but I use it for everything! I love it so much! The center knurling has a stable grip for squats and front squats but more noticeable for back squats. It’s not noticeable when I front squat and I like that because I don’t want to have to be cautious about placing the bar gently on my neck like some other more aggressive knurled bars I have used. The aggressive grip at the hands is enough for front squats and great for the bench press too. I should have bought this bar years ago. I had no idea how important a quality bar was until I got my grip on this. Worth every dollar! Thank you rogue. The beveled edge was a nice surprise and noticed by everyone else using it. I’m proud!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best BAR This is a BAR!!! Every aspect of this bar is as Matt stated, grip, center knurl, whip. I love it, yes it is an aggressive knurl but well worth it when going heavy or fast. I would/have purchased another - you should too.
