Product Description

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

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 Classic, Bare Steel Burgener & Rippetoe Bar, Now Made in the USA

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.

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.

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

Bare steel perfection.
When things started shutting down, I had it in my head I was going to get an OPB. It seemed that every time I got the notification they were back in stock, I was at work, and by the time I got home, they were sold. One day I was refreshing the site and saw this gem was available. I figured, it was available, might as well... That was the right decision. Up until the day it arrived, I had been making do with a barbell that I fabricated out of 1" cold rolled steel and scrap 1.5" steel pipe. The only "real" barbells I had ever used were the ones at commercial gyms - none of which were decent. Then this thing came. The first time I held it, it became apparent that I had never held a real barbell before. The lack of any coating between my hand and the steel, the ridiculously smooth sleeve spin (the sleeves were welded onto the shaft on my homemade bar)... It's fair to say that I love this bar. And you will too.

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!

It’s all I could get.
I did not want the center knurl. I put tape on the knurl to make it work. This was the only 45 lb barbel that was available at time of order. I was lucky to get a barbel at the time.

Fantastic power bar
This bar is glorious. Bars steel feel is unmatched. It's knurling is very grippy without being overly aggressive. I will never want another coated barbell again. Great work rogue, I love this bar.
