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.

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.

Yucky rusty
We bought this together with a whole gym set in August and it's already rusty. Understood that we should clean it with oil but it shouldn't deteriorate that quick.

Perfect, I think
The Rogue B&R 2.0 barbell is by far my favourite barbell. The knurling is out of this world. If you like good knurling, this is it. Aside from the knurling, I really like that this barbell is a thicker 29mm in diameter and is bare steel.

Perfect design
I ordered this bar about 7 months ago and I've been using it regularly. Sadly, it came with a few scratches from tooling at Rogue but the knurling and stuff was in great shape. I find the bar itself to be a really good design for all the standard exercises. The pros: knurling is sharp, but not too sharp. I remember when I got it how much harsher it felt compared to my potato bar. After using it for a while I think it's probably a good balance. It's actually 45 pounds unlike the garbage sporting goods bars. I just assumed everything was the same weight, but my old bar was about 7 pounds lighter. This can come as a surprise. The knurling dimensions seem right for my body features. I'm not scraping the knurling during deadlifts. Super well packaged too. Easily survived shipping. The cons: Honestly I haven't found anything that I just don't like. It's a great all around bar for me. Humidity is a pain. Everyone online says they oil it maybe once a month or so. I have to oil it after every workout during the summer or rust forms. That's my fault though for buying bare steel knowing it's super humid. Came with some tooling marks.

Amazing bar
The knurling is not too aggressive, and it has no flex. This is a great day to day bar. Just remember to oil it weekly to prevent rust. Its been great for bench, squat, ohp although its really stiff for deadlifts to keep in mind (as it should be). Overall, still a great all around bar. Highly recommended

Can Feel the Difference
Bought this bar to replace the low-grade one that came with a weight set from a big box store and I only wish I had done it sooner. The knurling gives plenty of grip without tearing my hands to shreds. The biggest difference is the rotation of the weights on the sleeves. Now when I do power cleans the weights spin freely and I'm not fighting those forces. This bar can do it all and is a great value for the price!

Had it for 5 years
This bar is AMAZING. I’ve been using it in my garage x almost 5 yrs in a Florida garage. It has gotten some rust during the years. But nothing that can’t be removed with a little 3 in 1 oil and some elbow grease. The knurl feels great in that bare steel. Awesome DURABLE bar for a garage gym.

Great Bar
Bought this for a home gym. Love the feel of the raw steel. Knurling is aggressive but not painful. May have to purchase another.
