At a minimum tensile strength of 215,000 PSI, the Euro Olympic WL Bar is the strongest in the Rogue arsenal, but that’s not the only reason we chose this ultra-durable steel. Over years of testing, many weightlifters have found that the raw materials used in EU steel also help produce a greater whip during snatches and cleans.
Using a process from the worlds of aviation and automotive manufacturing, the sleeves on the Euro Oly Bar are friction welded—creating a superior, forged-quality bond. This method is more precise than most joining techniques and helps prevent any changes in the integrity of the sleeve. Combined with 10 sets of top-quality needle bearings, the result is a barbell with a smooth, consistent, quieter spin.
The Euro Oly Bar is built to IWF standards and includes both Olympic knurl marks and a center knurl. The knurling itself features a full, uniform pattern with a medium intensity that won’t shred up your hands.
If you’re looking for the pinnacle of American-made Olympic bearing bars in the industry right now, this is it.
For the athlete who refuses anything but the best, this is your next Olympic barbell. The Rogue Euro 28mm Oly WL Bar is machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, using only top-tier European steel, with 10 sets of quality needle bearings, friction welded sleeves, and a polished chrome finish. Before leaving our factory, each IWF-standard bar goes through a rigorous testing process to ensure absolute precision—from exact weight and straightness to the consistency of its whip and spin. No other bar in the Rogue fleet, or in the industry, can call itself an upgrade over this one.

*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.

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.
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.
