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 KSI 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.

Rogue B&R Bar 2.0 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible My dad got this for me as my Christmas present this year, and it's the single nicest bar I've ever held. The knurling is perfect - not a hint of the slipperiness that accompanies zinc or chrome plating. It feels glued to your hand. The bushings don't make a sound, and the sleeves spin forever. I'm not sure what else to say that hasn't already been said in these comments, but the quality of this bar blows me away. Out of the package, there was a fine layer of oil, and a glitter of very tiny steel shavings (this thing was obviously fresh out of the machine shop), but that just gave me an excuse to spend some get-to-know-you time brushing it down with a stiff-bristle brush and wiping down with a cloth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bar I bought this bar a month ago very happy with bar so far. So far it seems to be a well balanced bar. The grip is awesome. I bought a $70 bar about 6 months ago and the difference is night and day. The bar bent and made all kinda of noises the bar seems as though it would snap and it could not handle anything over 280lb. felt like it was going to snap in half but the Rouge bar very sturdy and seems to help me lift more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for strength training I received the B&R Bar 2.0 from Rogue one month ago and have put in several training sessions with it by now. It has exceeded all my expectations. I was looking for a strength training bar with no whip and a center knurl for heavy back squats. The Ohio Power Bar also fits this need, but due to its more aggressive knurl may not be as versatile if you also want to perform cleans while using a hook grip. Plus it also has markings for Olympic lifts as well. The standard Rogue knurl and raw steel finish provide an outstanding feel in your hands. This spin is excellent, even better then the Ohio Bar that Ive had for three years. Quality is outstanding, I recommend this bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed! The bar was in my hands 3 days from placing the order. It is everything I hoped it would be and then some. I have been on starting strength for 2 months and needed to upgrade my cheap 300lb bar that got me started as my deadlift is quickly approaching 300lb. The knurl is very nice and provides a much better grip than what i had been using but it is not too sharp where it digs into your back on squats like some more aggressive bars i have used years ago. The feel is incredibly solid. I love this bar and think it is perfect for me. As another reviewer said, I hope to pass it down to my son one day. Great product Rouge!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality steel Purchased this for a garage (home) gym. Nice balance of features so that both olympic and traditional compound lifts can be performed with one bar instead of many.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect addition to my home gym Shipped quickly. Perfect knurl and feel. A little bend with 405lbs in the squat position. Cleans are solid with no whip of the bar. Definitely purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you need and nothing you don't. This bar is built like a tank. Knurling is unreal. I was worried the center knurl would scrape my neck during cleans but it doesn't. This bar simply makes you want to lift. All day. Every day. Tell your friends you'll see them never. All your time will now be spent getting stronger.
