Best In Class Durability

With a F-Scale rating of F8-R, the Ohio Power Bar is among the most durable barbells in its class. By optimizing materials and manufacturing techniques, the Ohio Power Bar has been engineered to withstand the heavy demands that powerlifting places on barbells today, whether it be used daily in the garage or in a high-use commercial gym.

LOW PROFILE SLEEVE DESIGN

Our new low-profile sleeve design makes loading and unloading plates easier than ever. Bright zinc finished sleeves contrast with the black zinc shaft, adding both oxidation resistance and a classic look to the bar.

Loading

2X QUIETER PERFORMANCE

Using precision machining, we are able to tighten the fit of the sleeve on the shaft which means a smoother spin, a more connected feeling while lifting and significant noise reduction.

How It's Made
1

FRICTION WELDING

The collars of the sleeves are friction welded, creating the strongest sleeves in the industry. This bond is as strong as if machined from a single piece of steel, while saving on waste and cost. 

Rogue Work Hardening
2

Rogue Work Hardening

Our patented, proprietary process more than doubles the durability and lifespan of the barbell shaft compared to our competitors. 

Bright Zinc Sleeve Coating
3

Bright Zinc Sleeve Coating

A bright zinc finished sleeve contrasts with the black zinc shaft, adding both oxidation resistance and a classic look to the bar.

State-of-the-art Gauging
4

State-of-the-art Gauging

We use gauging normally employed in the aerospace industry to ensure that every bar that makes it to a customer is exactly as designed.

Barbell Durability

RUST RESISTANCE

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.

BARBELL DURABILITY

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.

Loading

F SCALE™ APPLICATION

How a barbell is used will affect its durable lifespan and it's a key factor in determining what type of F Rating™ might be suitable for your gym's needs. This graph correlates the F Rating™ of a barbell with different types of usage in order to predict the durable lifespan. Using this data, we are able to make recommendations on what F Rating™ is appropriate for different training situations. With a rating of F8-R, the Ohio Power Bar is rated to outlast a lifetime of lifting (50+ years) in a powerlifting facility or home gym.

Key Features of the Ohio Power Bar - Black Zinc:

205,000 PSI STEEL (200,000 PSI FOR STAINLESS)
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.

Aggressive Knurl
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.

Black Zinc Finish
3

Black Zinc Finish

Each Ohio Power Bar finish offers a different level of oxidation protection and has a direct effect on the feel of the knurl. Black zinc is a tried and true coating for barbells, offering resistance to corrosion while being thin enough to not take away from the feel of the knurl.

Lifetime Warranty
4

Lifetime Warranty

The quality construction of the Stainless Ohio Power Bar 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.

Poor customer service! Awesome end product
I took the plunge and ordered the top dog Rogue Power bar. $518.95. It arrived and one of the sleeves was assembled wrong. No snap ring on the end, 1/2” of play, logo disc fell out. Very poor quality control! That wasn’t the worst part. Customer service is a painfully slow process. They prefer email/chat messaging. Every message takes a full day! You message them, the next day they respond, then you reply and it repeats. Painful! A simple phone call could expedite the entire process. By the time they finally replaced the bar almost a month later, they sent me a $25 gift card!! 4.8% for my troubles. That is an insult. Had it been 20-25%, I would have given them another chance and ordered another product to see if they get it right. Not worth it. Try another top competitor. Texas or Oregon bar will be my next choice. The replacement bar is top notch, but the process to get there is painful. Buyer be ware!!!!

Great Bar, Problematic Sleeves
The Ohio Power Bar with chrome sleeves performs great. The knurling is great and the bar is a tank. The issue is with the chrome plating on the sleeves. The chrome has begun to peel off after less than a year and is leaving very sharp shards all over my gym. This is in a home gym setting used only be 2 people, so the bar is not being abused. Not sure if this is expected or a quality issue.

Rogue ohio stainless steel power bar w/chrome s
I bought a stainless steel ohio power bar and it had rust on it then got a replacement which also had rust. Will never buy another ohio power stainless steel barbell. Must be using second quality steel.. had initially bad customer service on both bars. Had them send me a deadlift barbell but after getting it ,felt like I didn't get good service from rogue and was settling. They are wanting their bar back which I am just sending the deadlift bar back. Customer is horrible and not consistent. They go out of their way to make you feel like crap for having legitimate complaints on their products.. extremely disappointed. They do nothing to make it right as far as apologizing .
