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.

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.

Love this Bar
I bought the ROGUE 45LB Black Zinc- OHIO POWER BAR for my home gym before the holidays and I absolutely love it!! This is definitely a quality bar! I use it primarily for Squat/Bench training and there is a noticible difference from the old bars I have been using,. I shipped it right to my front door in just a few days. It's been well worth the money.

I get it now
when I first started building my home gym, I’ve heard so much hype around the Ohio bar, but ended up going with the with the rogue 2.0 to save some cash. And while it’s an excellent bar, the allure of the Ohio bar finally cost me to purchase one. And wow this thing is just a fantastic tool. It does everything for the 2.0 bar does just better. It feels great in the hand, the knurling is fantastic and I love having center knurling for squatting heavy so I just can’t say enough about this bar. It’s the best one I’ve used.

Amazing
I’ve used many different bars and this one is the absolute best all around bar. There is not one complaint and nothing I would want different about it. An added bonus is the longevity of the stainless steel, the kids will be growing up with it as well.

My Ohio Power Bar is all I could ask for!
Great bar for garage gyms where corrosion could be an issue. I bought the SS sleeves as well. I do not find the knurling to be excessive but actually comfortable ( if you have calloused hands). Feels secure on my back too. Very happy with shipping - not a mark or scratch though the packaging looks like it was tossed around during shipment. Worth the money.

Amazing!
I finally pulled the trigger on another power bar. I do have the bare steel version that bar is by far met my expectations. But now I received the Cerakote black on black boy Xma's came early. Fast shipping and no issues on bar excellent packaging like always. I was spectacle on the sleeves being black. There were many reviews saying it will scratch with plates rolling on. So far, no scratches on first day. My plates are probably broken into already. Thats using your standard steel plates. I do have the steel version calibrated plates am sure those will scratch the sleeve. Bumpers no issue due to the insert it has. The spin of the sleeves is great I like the feel of the bar nice knurling and the Rouge printed on bar is just sweet. Overall, I am happy with my purchase. Rogue power bar is an excellent choice for your gym needs...
