Rogue 45LB Ohio Power Bar - Stainless Steel

This is the premier power bar in the Rogue arsenal; equipped with a stainless steel shaft and sleeves for a superior feel and unmatched oxidation resistance.

The Stainless 45LB Ohio Power Bar is manufactured in Columbus, OH, and includes a zero-flex 200,000 PSI tensile strength shaft, quality bronze bushings, and 16.25” of loadable sleeve length.

All of our 29mm Ohio Power Bars also feature single powerlifting knurl marks and center knurling, machined in a pattern that’s deep and coarse without being sharp or abrasive. This makes the bar a perfectly honed workhorse for the bench, squat, and deadlift.

Please Note: Rogue recommends using a synthetic bristle brush, NOT a steel brush, to clean a stainless steel shaft. Steel on steel can cause rusting over time. See more tips here: Bar Care & Maintenance.

Key Features of This Ohio Power Bar:

  • 1Stainless Steel

    No finish offers better oxidation resistance than stainless steel, and this version of the Ohio Power Bar features a stainless shaft and the option for stainless sleeves. Stainless steel is low maintenance for gym owners, and eliminates worries about chipping or wearing down the finish on the bar’s sleeves. As noted, we recommend using a synthetic bristle brush, NOT a steel brush, to clean a stainless steel shaft.

  • 2200,000 PSI Tensile Strength

    The Stainless Ohio Power Bar’s 29MM diameter steel shaft has a tensile strength of 200,000 PSI, 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.

  • 3Aggressive 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.

  • 4Add More to Your Powerlifting Arsenal

    Ohio Power Bar owners can use this barbell in conjunction with a broad range of other top caliber Rogue powerlifting products, from our power racks and squat stands to the Westside Bench, deadlift bar jacks, Wagon Wheel plates, and Calibrated Steel Plates.

  • 5Lifetime 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.

  • 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.

*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 - Stainless Steel is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 376.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid addition to a garage gym Actually traded one of my ohio bars for this. The cerakote finish is probably the best looking finish in the Rogue lineup. Haven't had any issues with chipping so far but you should probably have the protective j-cups if you want to keep that from happening. The cerakote is relatively thin, but still diminishes the aggressive grip of the power bar. This is countered to a degree by the fact that the cerakote finish has a matte texture. I still think stainless is your best bet though if you want corrosion resistance with the best grip texture. Having said that, I have no issues holding onto the bar during major lifts. It's definitely more aggressive than my standard stainless ohio bar, even with the cerakote.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS BAR! I've been lifting (for strength for other sports) for fifty plus (yes 50+) years (I'm 66). This is the nicest bar I've ever lifted with. I've lifted with other variations of the OPB in commercial gyms, but I got this one in stainless because it is for my garage gym and we have high humidity in south Georgia. I love the knurling on this bar and the bar is pretty/beautiful.

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!!!
