Rogue 45LB Ohio Power Bar - Black Zinc

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar, quick shipping. Super happy I went with this bar over others. The knurling is aggressive, which I really like for all lifts including squat, bench, and deadlift. Shipping was also quick. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best barbell I’ve used I love this barbell! The knurl is fantastic! Nice aggressive knurl that really grips. I’ve used it for squats, overhead press and bench. Just an awesome all around barbell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Power Bar in the market!! Got my OPB E-Coat today and I love it. I was a bit afraid about some reviews pointing that the knurl gets a bit dull due the E-Coat but to my hands and back it feels just right. Not super aggressive but with more than enough grip and during heavy squats the bar stays on my back perfectly. Like everything Rogue, shipping was fast even during this pandemic. Of course, took me almost 3 weeks checking every 5 mins on Rogue website until it was in stock. Stock was gone in less than 10 mins, though. I may get another OPB in Red Cerakote with Chrome Sleeves when ZEUS Custom is back online!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the best After a month of use I can say this is the best of the best. I wanted a bar with aggressive knurling and this bar delivers. It also just feels so comfortable and natural as if it was custom tailored just for me. You will never regret purchasing an Ohio bar.
