Product Description

The 25mm Women’s Operator Bar features the same 190,000 PSI tensile strength and ultra-durable Cerakote coating as the 28.5mm Men’s Operator Bar, along with the same selection of (4) unique, military inspired colorways: Olive Drab, Tek Grey Camo, Tiger Stripe Woodland Camo, and Desert Tan. All variations come with our proprietary matte black sleeves and a new low-profile surface finish.


CRAFTED FOR EXCELLENCE IN COLUMBUS, OH

Built to International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) standards for women’s competition barbells, the 15KG / 25mm Operator Bar offers a slightly condensed size from standard men’s bars without sacrificing any of the performance elements.  Fully machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, the 25MM Women’s Operator Bar also includes dual knurl marks (for Olympic and Powerlifting), 13” of loadable sleeve length, and Rogue branding on the center of the shaft. New, precision-machined bronze bushings fit tighter around the shaft help to limit radial and axial endfloat, resulting in substantial noise reduction. 


ENHANCED FEATURES

Best In Class Durability:  Engineered to withstand the increased demands that functional movements and Olympic lifts place on barbells today through overhead drops.  Read more here.

2X Quieter Performance: Refined with even stricter tolerances, precision-machined bronze bushings fit tighter around the shaft, and improved internal sleeve tolerances dampen sound and eliminate unwanted movement, ensuring a smoother and more stable lift.

Low Profile Sleeve Design: The matte black sleeves are now machined using a new low-profile sleeve design that allows for easier than ever loading and unloading of plates.


UNMATCHED REPUTATION

For over a decade, the Rogue 25MM Operator Bar has set the industry standard as the ultimate women’s general purpose barbell. With the latest edition, we've elevated our women’s flagship barbell to new heights, delivering our most dynamic and precision machined 25MM Operator Bar to date.  The 25MM Operator Bar isn't just a symbol of the Rogue brand; it reflects our workplace, identity, and the pride we take in making top-quality weightlifting barbells.

Best In Class Durability

With a F-Scale rating of F6-R, the 25MM Operator Bar is among the most durable barbells in its class. By optimizing materials and manufacturing techniques, the 25MM Operator Bar has been engineered to withstand the increased demands that CrossFit, Olympic lifting and functional fitness place on barbells today.  Read more here.

LOW PROFILE SLEEVE DESIGN

Our matte black sleeve option uses a new, low-profile, sleeve design that makes loading and unloading plates easier than ever.  The precision-machined sleeve is then treated with our proprietary matte black process, significantly enhancing its resistance to corrosion and impact. This treatment ensures that the sleeves retain their appearance for a much longer duration compared to traditional sleeve finishes.

2X QUIETER PERFORMANCE

Using precision machining, we are able to tighten the fit of the sleeve on the shaft which means a smoother spin, a more connected feeling while lifting and significant noise reduction.

How It's Made
1

FRICTION WELDING

The collars of the sleeves are friction welded, creating the strongest sleeves in the industry. This bond is as strong as if machined from a single piece of steel, while saving on waste and cost. 

Rogue Work Hardening
2

Rogue Work Hardening

Our patented, proprietary process more than doubles the durability and lifespan of the barbell shaft compared to our competitors. 

Cerakote Shaft Finish
3

Cerakote Shaft Finish

Cerakote delivers outstanding corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc—while also providing many color options. This polymer-ceramic composite coating was first popularized in the firearm industry for its unique durability in thin applications.

Proprietary Sleeve Finish
4

Proprietary Sleeve Finish

Our matte black sleeve option involves a new process that effectively transforms the surface of the steel rather than coating it. This transformation significantly enhances the sleeves’ corrosion resistance, impact resistance, and abrasion resistance. 

State-of-the-art Gauging
5

State-of-the-art Gauging

We use gauging normally employed in the aerospace industry to ensure that every bar that makes it to a customer is exactly as designed.

Barbell Durability

RUST RESISTANCE

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.

BARBELL DURABILITY

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.

Loading
Loading

F SCALE™ APPLICATION

How a barbell is used will affect its durable lifespan and it's a key factor in determining what type of F Rating™ might be suitable for your gym's needs. This graph correlates the F Rating™ of a barbell with different types of usage in order to predict the durable lifespan. Using this data, we are able to make recommendations on what F Rating™ is appropriate for different training situations. With a rating of F6-R, the 25MM Operator Bar is rated to last 12 years in a high volume CrossFit gym and will outlast a lifetime of lifting in an Olympic Weightlifting gym, a home gym or a Powerlifting gym.

TENSILE STRENGTH

Expressed in PSI, tensile strength measures the maximum weight a barbell can support before deforming. The 190K tensile strength falls within the optimal range of not bending under normal use, yet not been inflated to the point that it will shorten the life of the bar.

Loading

BARBELL KNURLING EXPLAINED

Our signature knurl, designed for multi-purpose use, provides a firm grip without being abrasive. This falls in the middle of the road on the knurl scale, striking a balance without being overly aggressive or passive.

1

Ceramic Coating + Military Inspired Design

The 15KG 25MM Operator Bar uses an advanced ceramic-based coating, Cerakote, used widely in the gun industry for its remarkable durability in thin applications. This high-quality finish can deliver superb abrasion/wear/corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc—and it includes exclusive Rogue branding centralized on the shaft. The Operator Bar’s exclusive color finish combinations (Black Sleeves with Olive Drab, Desert Tan, Tek Camo Grey, or Tiger Stripe Woodland Camo shaft) are unique, military-inspired options rarely found elsewhere in the industry.


Built for Multi-Purpose Performance
2

Built for Multi-Purpose Performance

Each variant of our Operator Bar utilizes a U.S. steel variant that we believe is the best in the industry for use in a multi-purpose barbell. The 190,000 PSI shaft is ground and polished prior to machining, ensuring a smooth finish and optimal performance, and the refined knurling pattern delivers a firm but non-abrasive grip. Friction-welded sleeves and quality bronze bushings help produce an ideal combination of the consistent spin needed for Oly lifts and ample stability required for heavy powerlifting.

New Stricter Tolerances
3

New Stricter Tolerances

Every connection in the Operator Bar now has tightened tolerances measuring in the thousandths of an inch. Using advanced optical profilometry as well as custom electronic gauging, we can produce a multipurpose bar that consistently meets our exacting standards. This applies to the knurl and the sleeve profile, as well as the features in the shaft and sleeves that enable a perfect fit during assembly. The result is less axial and radial float of the sleeves (i.e. enhanced stability), significant noise reduction, and a more solid feel throughout the lift.

Proprietary Matte Black Sleeves
4

Proprietary Matte Black Sleeves

The matte black sleeves involve a new process that effectively transforms the surface of the steel rather than coating it. This greatly improves the sleeves’ corrosion resistance, impact resistance, and abrasion resistance. By using advanced optical profilometry to gauge the sleeve finish, we are also able to ensure that the profile of the sleeve stays exactly as designed. Proprietary matte black sleeves will typically maintain their appearance much longer than traditional sleeve finishes, even through regular everyday use.

Beautiful Barbell!
I am so glad I found Rogue Fitness while building my home gym. I have had to be patient as they are out of a lot of items but they have all been worth the wait (weight, ha!) I decided to spend a little more on my bar and get the cerakote coating and I'm so glad I did. I want durability and hopefully less maintenance of the bar. I am a proud owner of Rogue fitness equipment.

Great bar but hard to see the markings
Just like all the other bars I have from Rogue the quality is top level. This Operator Bar felt great and a lot of my clients really loved it. However, all said it was really hard to see the markings when setting up for bench presses. I even had a hard time seeing them while spotting from above. Tek-Grey Camo design looked more like snakeskin than camo, but still a good looking bar. Ended up selling it and replaced it with an E-Coat Bella Bar. Looking forward to trying that one out with my clients when Covid-19 restrictions lift!
