ROGUE 45LB OHIO POWER BAR - AGGRO

The AGGRO™ variations of our 45LB Ohio Power Bar are designed for lifters who want an even more aggressive knurl than the standard model. There are two options to choose from (2x AGGRO and 3x AGGRO), each utilizing advanced precision tooling to re-create the geometry of the original knurl pattern with added depth and more prominent peaks:

Loading

*WARNING: The 3x AGGRO is our most aggressive knurl to date, and one of the sharpest and least forgiving on the market. Anyone unsure of their tolerance level should avoid this option. Returns will NOT be accepted on the basis of any pain or discomfort caused by the knurling itself.

Both AGGRO Power Bars are manufactured in Columbus, Ohio, utilizing the same steel we developed for the world famous Elephant Bar, and featuring the same 200,000 PSI tensile strength shaft as the standard Ohio Power Bar. The design also includes quality bronze bushings, 16.25” of loadable sleeve length, and Cerakote branding on each side of the center knurl. By using stainless steel for the shaft and sleeves, we’re able to give the customer the true, uncompromised feel of the extra aggressive knurl, while also adding the benefits of superior oxidation resistance.

A Note on Bar Cleaning: Rogue recommends using a synthetic bristle brush, NOT a steel brush, to clean a stainless steel shaft. Using steel on stainless steel can contaminate the stainless steel and cause rusting. See more tips here: Bar Care & Maintenance.

AGGRO KNURLING

With these AGGRO variations, we’ve been able to increase the depth and coarseness of the Ohio Power Bar knurling without sacrificing the knurl geometry that we are known for. Our tooling has been specially designed so that we can have an extremely repeatable knurl with a more aggressive feel that looks as good as it grips. Available in your choice of two designs: 2x AGGRO or 3x AGGRO. Be Advised: The 3x is NOT intended for anyone unsure about their preferences or pain threshold; be sure to reference the comparison photos to get a sense of the extreme difference in the knurl of these bars vs. the standard version. (All bars include a center knurl).

STAINLESS STEEL

No finish offers better oxidation resistance than stainless steel. By leaving the shaft and sleeves of the AGGRO bars uncoated, we’re also able to give the athlete the true feel of the extra aggressive knurl. As noted, we recommend using a synthetic bristle brush, NOT a steel brush, to clean a stainless steel shaft.

3

200,000 PSI TENSILE STRENGTH

The AGGRO Ohio Power Bar’s 29MM diameter stainless steel shaft has a tensile strength of 200,000 PSI, delivering superior rigidity and virtually zero whip/flex. Machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, the bar also features a snap-ring design and quality bronze bushings for a smooth, consistent feel.

Loading
4

CERAKOTE BRANDING

We’ve included Cerakote branding on each side of the center knurl in a unique “photonegative” stencil style, with black Cerakote bringing out designs from the stainless steel. The Rogue logo is featured on one side, while the other introduces the AGGRO Monster, with his number of teeth indicating the aggressiveness of the knurl (2 teeth for 2x, 3 teeth for 3x).

LIFETIME WARRANTY

The quality construction of the AGGRO Ohio Power Bar is backed by Rogue’s Lifetime Warranty against bending. This is a barbell equipped for high intensity, everyday use. Please Note: The warranty does not cover damage due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user, 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.
Returns will NOT be accepted on the basis of an AGGRO bar’s knurling feeling more aggressive than the customer expected.

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. We have found that most problems with bars we replace are related to abusive use rather than manufacturing or materials issues.

2x AGGRO
I haven’t wrote a review on equipment which as I think of it now I have had and still have a lot of equipment from rogue. But I have to say that this bar is awesome! I think this bar is my daily bar now, that being said if you like a aggressive knurling I would go with this bar. I actually at this point want the 3x now to see if I like that one also. Before this bar the westside knurling was my favorite from rogue. I have the OHPB in cerakote, westside, rogue 2.0 and some of the specialty axle types bars, this knurling blows it all away, plus the stainless steel and the look of this bar… just wow! If I have one thing I would change it would be the end caps to match the logo of the AGGRO on the shaft. Please rogue add special end caps to like you have for deadlift bar and westside to change it up. I have tried this bar for squats, bench, deadlifts, bent over rows etc… I just can’t seem to not use another bar every time I go to workout

Superb
This is by far the most aesthetically pleasing product I’ve bought from you. Not only does it look nice but it is a solid barbell. The grip is just perfect, the knurl won’t hurt you and it does it’s job.

2X AGGRO Monster
I bought this bar 2 months ago and i had the 20kg standard Ohio Power Bar Black Zinc before. The Knurling on the 2X AGGRO is sharper but not to the point that i wouldn't use it for my everyday training. Only downside on my purchase was that the end cap came a bit damaged but it didn't affect the function so i did not complain about it. But i would like to see Rogue do more high quality end caps in the future.

AGGRO X2 SHOUULD BE THE STANDARD KNURL
After learning about strength movements for the past 6 months I knew the bare steel Ohio Power Bar would not aggressive enough. After careful deliberation I chose the X2 version and cannot be happier. My only negative on this purchase was the lack of quality control on the first bar. While Rogue customer service was great, I feel the quality check before shipping is a gimmick and not be advertised.

I was on the fence for ages but ...
I've been using the standard black oxide Ohio Power Bar for a while now but I never really bonded with it. I couldn't really point to the cause, I mean .. the knurl was aggressive, but lacked feel somehow, if that makes any sense. I own a stainless Ohio Bar that I use for repetition and olympic style stuff and actually preferred it's feel most of the time, albeit I missed the center knurl on squats and the extra grip on other moves. I ended up deciding to get a stainless version of the power bar, expecting to improve the experience, but the regular bar is on backorder from the US so I took the plunge and took a chance on the 2x Aggro! I'm so glad I did! It's soooo good, I love this bar so much I can't stop using it. Yes, it's aggressive, you FEEL IT! But in a good way. Only downsides are maybe if you lift heavy and haven't lifted in a while, you may need to get your hands built up for a while again, or you just have very sensitive hands and it's not for you.

3X AGGRO enhances grip, while being pain-free
Bought this a month ago, have used it for pulls and presses. The knurling is just aggressive enough to improve grip (no chalk needed), while also being pain-free and very comfortable. No skin tearing or other injury, just improved stickiness. The uncoated stainless steel feels great.

3x Aggro Gnurling should be Standard.
Honestly, it’s not bad at all. Certainly nowhere near justifying reviewer’s stunned by how sharp the barbell is. I feel like it’s finally at the level it should have always been. I love it. Makes my OPB feel like the surface of a broomstick in comparison. I will never pay for a standard power bar again. They don’t come close. I recommend this bar to anyone who has used their hands in life.

The best bar I’ve every owned..
Stainless steel shaft, stainless steel sleeves.. she is an absolute beauty to look at, then you use her and you realise every bar before was just a toy.. don’t be afraid of the aggro name, it should be called refined, the 2X is perfect, I love that I no longer need to use chalk.
