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:

*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).

2

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.

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).

5

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.

As Sharp As They Come - Aggro 3x
This bar is likely the sharpest bar on the market. It's exactly what I was looking for! Be warned, it will chew up your hand. Shown is a pic of the knurling and my hand about a minute after my first set of deadlifts. I usually have grip issues, but I could overhand grip my deadlifts without grip issues since the knurling really digs in. The overall quality of the bar is outstanding in every way, but there are a few things to look out for. Make sure you really give it a good wiping with a rag and really scrub the knurling with a nylon brush before use. My bar did come with a good amount of metal flakes that needed to be brushed off. It's also difficult to get all of the oil that is ships with off of the knurling with a rag since it's so sharp. In subsequent workouts, I've slowly gotten the oil out, so it really isn't a big deal. TLDR: Amazing bar with the sharpest knurling I've ever seen, make sure to give the knurling a good scrub with a nylon brush before using it. Same Rogue quality that one would expect with any barbell they make.

2XAggro bar. Rawr.
Just wow. So, SO perfect. Been using a B&R bar for the last couple of years, and found myself wanting something more aggressive... THIS is more agressive! Also. The little monster face is hilarious! Rogue definitely should have put it on the sleeve end caps!

Aggro 3 is Everything
Absolutely in love with the feel of the sharpness of the knurling. It gives an experience that to me makes it more enjoyable to lift light or heavy. For those who say it’s too much…it’s the point so if you want an ultra aggressive knurl then go with it. If something you already have (kabuki power bar) is good enough but maybe just a bit more entices you…2x.

Amazing knurling - AGGRO3
I upgraded from the Ohio Power Bar to the Westside Rogue Power Bar and then added the Rogue Squat Bar. It was also an "upgrade" every time in knurling intensity. When Rogue launched the AGGRO it was kinda natural to go for the more intense knurling again. The AGGRO 3 is amazing in its grip- I deadlifted 215kg without chalk or straps and only my thumbs were abraised by the knurling. Not torn though. The stick when squatting is better than with the Squat bar, however, the Squat bar sits better due to the bigger diameter I feel. The knurling needs some getting used to but for raw lifters (literally) it shouldn't take long to start loving this knurling!! All in all, a superb addition to the bar assortment. Not for Sissies!!!

Why do I need shins anyway
Bought the 3x Aggro and by God is it the best knurl in the industry. Deadlifting on the stiff bar has been tough due to the thickness of the bar and grip but with this knurl I had no problems, no use of chalk has been applied to it as well. The price is totally worth it. This monster did eat up my shins however.

Aggro Monster Has Teeth!
Grabbed both aggro 2 & 3 on release as I had been anticipating these bars since they were teased earlier in the summer. Aggro 2 feels like a refined Ohio Power Bar, improved overall on the knurl for me and replaces the original OPB as my favorite Rogue bar. Aggro 3 is easily the most aggressive knurl I have ever felt. I enjoy it for bench as I love the feel in my hand. It’s probably too aggressive for most for deadlifting, and as long as you aren’t squatting shirtless, it’s great for that. I recommend aggro 2 for those looking for a multi-use power bar. Aggro 3 only for those who enjoy a good pain or want to add a cool bar to an extensive bar collection. If I had one critique, it would be that I wish that would have made a custom barbell endcap sticker for the release featuring the aggro monster. The standard Ohio Power Bar sticker is a bit underwhelming for this unique bar. But for a full stainless steel bar with super cool design and knurl, I’d give this a strong recommend. The aggro monster will call to you deep in the night from wherever your gym is, demanding a sacrifice for gains. Buy it now.
