Rogue 45LB Ohio Power Bar - Bare Steel

Fully machined and assembled in Columbus, OH, the 29MM Rogue Ohio Power Bar features a 205,000 PSI steel shaft, single powerlifting knurl marks, and center knurling. The bar’s knurl pattern is deep and coarse without being sharp or abrasive, and the 29MM shaft diameter and high tensile strength result in little to no flex or whip. This makes the Ohio Power Bar a perfectly honed workhorse for the bench, squat, and deadlift.

The 45LB Ohio Power Bar includes bronze bushings, a snap ring design, and 16.25" of loadable sleeve length.

Key Features of This Ohio Power Bar:

  • 1205,000 PSI Steel (200,000 PSI For Stainless)

    The Ohio Power Bar’s 29MM diameter steel shaft boasts a tensile strength of 205,000 PSI (200,000 PSI for Stainless), 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.

  • 2Aggressive Knurl

    The bar includes single powerlifting marks and a center knurl, each featuring a deep, coarse pattern that produces a reliable grip / stick without being sharp or abrasive. Perfecting this knurl pattern is both a science and an art. Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus on new Haas machines (built in the USA) and fine-tuned and personally tested by the Rogue team.

  • 3Bare Steel Finish

    The Bare Steel creates a classic look and natural feel, the Zinc option (black shaft, bright sleeves) provides excellent corrosion resistance, and the Stainless Steel variation (with Chrome sleeves) strikes a balance between the two. Depending on the look and feel you prefer, there is a version of the Ohio Power Bar right in your wheelhouse.

  • 4Use It With These Other Rogue Products

    Ohio Power Bar owners can use this barbell in conjunction with a broad range of other top caliber Rogue powerlifting products, from the Westside Bench and R-3 Power Rack to deadlift bar jacks, Wagon Wheel plates, and Calibrated Steel Plates.

  • 5Lifetime Warranty

    The Ohio Power Bar’s quality construction 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.

  • 6Fast Rogue Shipping

    Orders placed by 3PM ship the same day. The Rogue Shipping System allows you to track your order from the time you place it to the time it hits your door. Order today, track today.

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.

Please Note: Like any fine piece of machined steel, a bare steel barbell 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.

*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.

Rogue 45LB Ohio Power Bar - Bare Steel is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 460.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent but inconsistent knurl This bar is fantastic in ever way. Just wanted to point out that purchase two in the last month and the knurling was quite different between the two. The red bar was much more aggressive and really digs in, while the black bar has a more grippy feel. It’s not a problem for us but it might be for you depending on your preferences and what you receive. Love the bars!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What you expect It's exactly what you expect and pay for. It's slightly more expensive but so far, after a few months, I am extremely pleased with the overall quality of the bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest bar I have ever used Bought 2 cerakote Ohio blue power bars a few months back for myself and my family. Absolutely love the bar and the cerakote finish is phenomenal. Awesome for bench, squats and deadlift and the added blue gives it a beautiful look to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bar! This is hands down the best barbell I've ever used. The knurling is perfect (aggressive) and there is nothing to complain about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bar ever I am 63 years old and been lifting for the last 33 of those at various gyms. Since Covid I decided to fulfill my lifelong dream of converting my basement into a gym. I have to say this is the best bar I have ever used. Great knurling, well balanced, well made just what I needed for a good all around powerlifting bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing bar! Bought this a few months back as to have an extra bar so I didn’t have to keep moving my original B&R 2.0 out of the rack due to limiting space in garage. The power bar feels even sturdier than the B&R 2.0 and I love the knurling which is more aggressive. Both bars are from Rogue and they both are great quality and perform as designed and desired. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels Like what you think a bar like this should f I purchased bars from every top bar manufacturer there are and this is the bar I find myself taking off my gun tack and using almost every time I train. It is amazing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love the Ohio Power bar I bought my Ohio Power Bar for my son. Built him a squat rack from 2X4s and gave it to him at Christmas. Rogue was sold out of your power racks at the time. Took it to Tallahassee Fl after Christmas and helped set up his garage gym. Of course he loves it. I see it as a family heirloom.
