Rogue 28MM Training Bar - Cerakote

The Rogue 28MM Training Bar is designed, machined, and assembled at the Rogue factory in Columbus, Ohio using the same steel shaft and uniform knurl pattern as our Olympic WL Bar. In place of the Oly Bar’s bearing sleeves, however, the Training Bar is assembled with bronze bushings in the style of the Rogue Ohio Bar. The result is a more cost-efficient, intermediate bar for athletes who still want the look and feel of a competition-ready Olympic barbell.

The quality U.S. steel used in the 28MM Training Bar meets a minimum tensile strength of 190,000 PSI, and each shaft is individually tested for straightness to within 0.015” (0.38MM). The bar is available in a wide range of optional finishes, including several new custom Cerakote colorways. This unique polymer-ceramic composite coating was first popularized in the gun industry for its durability in thin applications, and offers superior corrosion resistance over the life of your bar

Key Features of the 28MM Training Bar

  • 1Quality Rogue Construction

    Designed, machined, and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, the 28MM Training Bar is built to IWF specifications and Rogue’s own high standard, with a shaft tensile strength of 190,000 PSI. Each bar is machined and assembled from quality U.S. & EU steel and individually tested for straightness to within 0.015” (0.38MM). The shaft is ground and polished prior to machining for a smooth finish, and the knurling is carefully refined for a firm but non-abrasive grip. The use of reliable bronze bushings help produce a consistent “whip” needed for Oly training.

  • 2Cerakote Strength + Custom Colors

    This bar is now available in several custom Cerakote color finishes. Cerakote is 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, and it’s available here in black, red, and blue, with the Rogue logo across the center of the shaft (all sleeves have a black Cerakote finish).

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.

*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. Rogue has a replacement rate of less than 0.0002 on bars. 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 Instant PR's Just started Oly a few months ago and went from a beat down commercial gym bar with worn knurling and massive diameter to the 28mm training bar (yes i took it in there) and went from a 265lbs clean to a 280lbs clean in just a few sessions. My snatch went from 175lbs to 190lbs as well. Great whip and exelent knurling. Also a great dead lift bar. Everyone who used it loved it. Great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the 28mm bar! Top-notch overall quality! I’ve been using the “community” bars at my CrossFit gym for the last 5 years. I decided it was time to invest in personal equipment. With advice from my gym’s owner/coach I bought this bar. So happy! So sexy! Zero regrets!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bar! An excellent bar! Very good spin, especially for a bushing bar. Knurling is just right for competition-oriented training: not too sharp, but with plenty of grip so there's no problem holding onto it, even when the weight gets heavy. The 28 mm diameter is nice too: makes it easy to maintain a hook grip throughout the first and second phases of an Oly lift. Very pleased with this bar!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bar Bought this bar to tighten up my Olympic lifts but didn’t want to spend a lot of money. This bar does its job with superb quality. The whip and spin on this bar is phenomenal for a bushing bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You Will Enjoy this Bar I came across this bar in the Boneyard (Raw Shaft with Chrome Sleeves) slight double knurling. Showed me how high Rogue's standards are. I only have powerlifting and body building experience. Looking forward to weightlifting. Hoping to improve enough to be worthy of the quality of this bar. Also, not having the center knurl improves the overhead press. The raw steel feel great and looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar for the money I bought this to have a dedicated Oly bar. I have an Again Faster bar which is ok until you need the knurling to go heavy. The knurling on this bar is perfect. It'll be staying out of the squat rack.
