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.

  • 3Black Zinc Finish

    The Zinc option (black shaft, bright sleeves) provides excellent corrosion resistance, the Bare Steel creates a classic look and natural feel, and the new 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 - Black Zinc is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 340.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don’t wait just get Middle pandemic so impossible to place custom order. Was lucky enough to order an e-coat bar and it’s awesome. Paint does not affect grip. Unless you want to wait, order when you can. You get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent bar Very pleased with this bar overall. Bought during the pandemic so i could lift at home, and it has exceeded my expectations. The knurling is aggressive in a good way. Not even a hint of whip so far with a few 400+ lifts on the bar. For the money, this is an excellent bar and will be a great upgrade for anyone accustomed to bars at commercial gyms. Only con for me is that the black coating is a little tough to set up with in my (poorly lit) home gym. The knurling and smooth sections are hard differentiate in low light, so setting up for deadlifts has been an adjustment. A minor nitpick, but worth noting. If i had the option when I bought this bar, I would have gone for a different color. But the function of the bar is great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Bar I bought it because who doesnt know about the great Ohio Power Bar? It's very stiff and durable. Only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because I expected the knurling to be much more aggressive. I think it's the cerakote finish on it that makes it not so aggressive, it's almost a little slick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Industry standard! I got the black zinc ohio power bar. Ordered during Canada-wide and USA-wide gyms closure and received it within 2 weeks. I have used to bar for overhead press and deadlift. The knurling is agressive but not painful and I find out I use a lot less chalk than i used to. It is very stiff, finish is top quality, sleeves have no play at all, machining on the sleeve is super consistant, it spins smoothly for a power bar and the packaging was top notch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best barbell I've ever used From the immensely protective shipping container it arrives in to the way it sticks to my sweaty back during low bar squats, this is the best barbell I've ever used. Low weight/high rep or big weight/low rep, this bar doesn't move and feels comfortable for how coarse this bar is knurled. Great all around power bar. Looks sexy with the black zinc/bright zinc combo. I'm gushing over this bar too much... Buy it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cerakote dulls the knurling a lot Due to the cerakote coating, the knurling feels very passive. the knurling actually more passive than my normal black zinc Ohio Bar(not the power bar). Compared to my black zinc Ohio Power Bar, the knurling on the black zinc is significantly more aggressive. If you want your Ohio Power Bar to have the aggressive knurl like advertised, I would recommend the stainless steel or the black zinc bar. One good thing about cerakote is it offers very good protection. My bar slipped out of the tube when the UPS man was carrying it to my garage and it didn't scratch. I think I would only recommend this bar to someone who lifts outside and needs the corrosion protection cerakote offers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleeve length I was happily surprised to find the sleeve length so much longer than other bars. Always assumed all bar were the same. Can add more bumper plates, and postpone buying metal plates for now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar For Your Buck! Probably the best barbell I’ve ever used. The bar feels great, the knurling is perfect, even with the cerakote finish. I’ve had my bar for over 5 months and the cerakote is holding up perfectly. Overall great quality and great looking!
