KEY FEATURES OF THIS OHIO POWER BAR:

1

205,000 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.

2

Aggressive 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.

3

Bare 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.

Ohio Power Bar owners can use this barbell in conjunction with a broad range of other top caliber Rogue powerlifting products

5

Lifetime 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.

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.

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.

I love this bar!
I purchased the stainless steel with Chrome sleeves version. Right out of the box the knurling felt amazing. I was used to the more passive knurl of a normal ohio bar so this aggressive knurl was a big step up. It would probably be too much for a brand new lifter but I love it. The bar sticks in my hands for deadlifts and is super solid on my back for squats. Bar stiffness is good, not much whip on the powerlifting movements. Love the stainless steel shaft. It's beautiful, it feels amazing with no coating between my hands and the bar. I considered the stainless sleeves but it was just a little too spendy for me. If the chrome ever wears off I'm fine putting a little oil on the shaft from time to time. It was the shaft I really wanted to avoid rust at all costs. All in all, I've loved this bar from the first moment I took it out of the tube. If you serious about powerlifting and want a bar to last a lifetime, seriously consider the stainless steel, you won't regret it.

Something's rattling...
This is the second Ohio bar I've bought directly from Rogue. The first bar was amazing, but this second one has a concerning rattle near the end of the bar somewhere. I can't quite identify where the sound is coming from but it makes me a bit nervous when going heavy. I really hope it's nothing major and the bar won't break during a lift. I'd send it back but the packaging and shipping would be a nightmare.

Rusting in less than a year
I bought this barbell wishing it wasn’t going to rust quick.. but that back fired on me… I have always kept my barbell in the rogue barbell bag, I tried not to use as much chalk since I heard that’s what makes it Rust This is the second bar.. I have already got one replaced and same thing is happening

Factors such as chalk usage and exposure to moisture rich environments can quicken oxidation rates. Based on this combination, we recommend frequent use of 3-in-1 oil and a nylon bristle brush. Our team is reaching out for further assistance!

Solid Bar
I purchased it a month ago and it has been great. It has only had very light use over this period and it has already developed some rust marks which I'm a bit dissappointed about. The bar has been kept inside in a dry space.
