Rogue B&R Bar 2.0

The Classic, Bare Steel Burgener & Rippetoe Bar, Now Made in Columbus

Version 2.0 of the B&R Bar is built to the specifications of the bar’s original designers—strength training coaches Mike Burgener and Mark Rippetoe—with some enhancements from Rogue’s in-house manufacturing team. Along with custom-tailored dual knurl marks for Olympic lifting and powerlifting (including a passive center knurl), the bar now features a stronger 205,000 PSI shaft and an updated snap ring design. Quality bronze bushings produce a smooth, reliable spin, and the natural steel creates a great, old-school look and feel that few chrome/plated finishes can compete with.

The B&R 2.0 is a 20KG barbell with 16.25" of loadable sleeve length. Because of its versatility, it’s a great addition to a garage gym or a larger training facility or CrossFit box.

Please Note: Like any fine piece of machined steel, the bare steel on the B&R Bar will require some upkeep. Occasionally brushing the bar down with 3-in-1 oil or WD-40 will create a beautiful patina look. This is how bars were made for decades and it really does produce an unmatched feel.

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.

Rogue B&R Bar 2.0 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 68.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar This is a great bar equal to my Ohio power bar. I will definitely recommend this bar and the knurling is not aggressive

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value I am beginning the Starting Strength training program and putting together a home gym. I found B&R 2.0 recommended in several articles and the price was very competitive. I decided to buy two bars, and I am very happy that did. I really like the feel of bare steel, as it has a nice grip to it (it even smells good on your hands), the knurl is good, but not excessive/agressive, and I expect that they will both outlast me. So, if you're a beginner or intermediate athelete, not plannnig on doing Olympic lifts, then I think you'll find this bar to be a good value for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful bar...great for me! I was looking for a bar with a center knurl and dual hash marks....and so this was the guy. People have a issue with rust? But I live In Columbus, O and have brushed and oiled it once with Sharpshootr Maxx and that was about 5 weeks ago and not a spot of rust. I spun one of the sleeves the other day and each sleeve spun for 4 seconds....which I find kind of ridiculous (ridiculously awesome) for a bearing bar. Knurl is medium to strong...but I love it. This bar is my baby...expect to hand it down to my grandkids someday....haha. Just buy it when it's available!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for a solid bar. Had the original B&R bar and it was great. Sold it to a friend as a favor and ordered this one as a replacement. It has upgraded serviceable friendly snap ring sleeves whereas the old bar had pinned sleeves. The knurling on the original was slightly better (IMHO) but overall I'm not dissatisfied with the knurl on this offering. The one minor, and honestly the only gripe that I could level, is that this bar does seem to be more susceptible to oxidation. My old B&R was also bare steel, but it didn't patina as quickly between brushing and oiling. Absolutely worth the money no doubt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Right Have used gym barbells, I have to admit I've done a lot or research on bars. Once I saw the this bar available and IN-STOCK had to buy one. I've used it, i really like it. I think it might better than the gym ones I've used. Knurling is just fine on my hand. Great add to my home gym.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Bought the B&R because that was all that was available at the time. Super glad thats what I got now, because of the center knurling and the over all length. I have long arms so my snatch grip ends up being really wide which I can do on this bar without hitting the bearings. Flawless quality when it showed up. Started to rust a bit in the center from sitting on my sweaty back during squats. I just wipe it down and don't worry about it. I use it for EVERYTHING, and have no complaints. I have yet to drop the bar, just my paranoia I guess, I will once I get into much bigger heavier weights!
