This edition of the Rogue 25MM Olympic Weightlifting Bar includes a special Black Cerakote finish with official International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) branding on both the center of the shaft and the endcaps. This denotes the bar’s approval from the IWF for use in women’s competition.
Each 15KG bar is machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, and features a 215,000 PSI steel shaft, quality needle bearings, and chrome sleeves with 12.5" of loadable length. The exclusive Rogue knurl pattern (there is no center knurl) is precision-cut for a firm grip without the sharpness or abrasiveness of many import bars.
We firmly believe the Rogue Olympic Weightlifting Bar ranks among the best bearing bars in the industry for feel, durability, and performance. Its approval from the IWF further proves the high standard to which it’s held.
This version of the 25MM Oly WL Bar features a Black Cerakote shaft finish; a ceramic-based coating commonly trusted by firearm manufacturers for its remarkable durability in thin applications. Cerakote can deliver superb abrasion/wear/corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc—and it enables more variety in color and design, including the inclusion of the official IWF logo, in gold, on the center of this shaft. The IWF logo also appears on both endcaps, denoting the bar’s approval for use in IWF sanctioned women’s competitions.
Our Women’s Oly Bar is made exclusively from high-grade EU steel, producing a shaft with a minimum tensile strength of 215,000 PSI. Each shaft is ground and polished prior to machining (to ensure a smooth finish), and individually tested and straightened to within 0.015” (0.38mm). The sleeves are machined from a single piece of steel, with a chrome finish. The goal is to create just the right amount of “whip” or “flex” needed for competitive Olympic lifting.
There are 10 sets of needle bearings, 5 sets per sleeve—same as the Men's Oly Bar. These high-quality bearings produce a smooth, reliable spin across high-intensity, day-to-day use; a trait hard to find in many women’s bars on the market.
Every Oly Bar is machined in Columbus, Ohio, on new Haas machines that are built in the USA. For the Olympic knurl, we experimented with several knurling patterns before choosing the full but minimally aggressive texture that top weightlifters responded to best. Rather than relying on visibility alone, each bar is then manually tested to ensure the actual “feel” is up to Rogue standards. Note: There is no center knurl on the IWF Cerakote model.
Designed to IWF specifications for the competitive female Olympic lifter, the Cerakote Oly WL Bar weighs in at 15KG with a diameter of 25MM. It’s part of a growing line of Rogue barbells that are engineered specifically for the high-performance female athlete. This includes the Rogue Bella Bar 2.0, the Women’s B&R Bar and the Women’s Training Bar. We also offer a wide array of exclusive Rogue women’s training apparel to keep you moving free and easy through your regimen.

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.
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.
