Rogue Ohio Power Bar - Cerakote

Our 29MM Ohio Power Bar is now available in a Cerakote finish, with a range of exclusive colorways to choose from. This unique polymer-ceramic composite coating was originally popularized in the gun industry for its durability in thin applications, and it offers up to 100x the corrosion resistance of standard black zinc.

Aside from the finish, the Cerakote Ohio Power Bar is manufactured to the same general specifications as the original model, combining a 205,000 PSI, zero-flex steel shaft with quality bronze bushings and a snap ring design for a smooth, consistent spin. The bar features single powerlifting knurl marks and center knurling, machined in a pattern that’s deep and coarse without being sharp or abrasive. This makes the Ohio Power Bar a perfectly honed workhorse for the bench, squat, and deadlift.

The 45LB Cerakote Ohio Power Bar is machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, USA, and currently comes in the four colorway options listed below. Note: The Rogue logo on each shaft is slightly off-center due to the center knurling.

Key Features of the Cerakote Ohio Power Bar

  • 1Cerakote Strength + Custom Colors

    This version of the Rogue Ohio Power Bar is distinct for its use of Cerakote, a ceramic-based coating commonly trusted by firearm manufacturers for its remarkable durability in thin applications. This unique finish can deliver superb abrasion/wear/corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc—and it’s available to order in a range of exclusive colorways, with the Rogue logo branded on the center of the shaft. See the menu for current color combination options.

  • 2205,000 PSI Steel Shaft

    The Ohio Power Bar’s 29MM diameter steel shaft boasts a tensile strength of 205,000 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.

  • 4Part of the Rogue 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 American-made power racks and squat stands to the Westside Bench, 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.

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: Cerakote has an excellent resistance to corrosion, but metal-to-metal contact, particular on the sleeves, can still cause wear over time. For the best long term results, some cleaning and maintenance may be required. See our Ohio Bar Care Page for more info.

Fast Rogue Shipping

*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 - Cerakote is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 236.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best power bar under $300 I was hesitant to buy this bar with the bare steel finish at first because I thought oiling it would be a mess. Honestly though, the oiling is extremely easy, and the 3in1 oil tends to stick to the bar rather than splatter everywhere when you rub it into the knurling with a nylon brush. Piece of cake. The hype about the “feel” of the bare steel is justified. It feels a little “rougher” or at least less slick than zinc or chrome, sorta like extremely fine grit sandpaper. Add that on top of the aggressive knurling and what you got is a bar that really doesn’t need chalk to grip even for heavy deadlifts. If this bar comes out of your hands, your grip is definitely the problem. I also kinda like the thought of the bar forming a patina over time as I care for it. It’s a labor of love, and the one barbell finish you have to earn instead of buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did not disappoint As always top notch craftsmanship, quality materials and performs as it should. I have never gone CD wrong buying from Rogue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing bar for my garage gym. I purchased this bar during the cyber Monday sale and so fair I absolutely love it. This bar will last me a long time even living in the midwest with the weather change and having the bar in my garage gym. The Cerakote is stunning on this bar. I have the all black bar. Knurl is definitely aggressive but not too much it's just right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Piece of art. Knurl is aggressive. Very grippy. Perfect bar for benching and squat. If your not doing any Olympic lifts, get a power bar. I chose the stainless version instead of cerakote, no need fancy colors that can get chip and scratch. Stainless steel will always look perfect after many years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As expected This is one of the premium powerlifting bars On the market and does not disappoint. Would recommend to anyone
Date published: 2018-12-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied! Ive been consistently lifting weights for the past 8 years and most of my routine is done strictly with a barbell. Bench press, squats, rows, barbell curls, military peas, you get the idea. So naturally I’ve come to be pretty picky about my barbells. I’m sure others know why I’m talking about when I say not all barbells are equal. You know when you pick up a barbell and it just doesn’t have the right feel. Feels cheap, grips are off, diameter is off. That sort of thing. Those little things can make a big diffeeenc especially when your lifting heavy. With that being said this is by far the beat barbell I’ve ever used. It is what I would call perfect! Feels right. It doesn’t bend, the grip is nice and deep so it actually lets you grip it, bo chalk needed really. The spacing of the rings is perfect, diameter is perfect. And it just “feels” good. You can tell when you pick it up it’s high quality. Like I said this is the best barbell I’ve ever used and that’s coming from a guy who’s very picky so that says something. You won’t be disappointed. Thank you guys for such a great product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bar I've Owned This is by far the best barbell I've purchased. The knurl stands out the most to me. I almost feel like I don't even need chalk when doing deadlifts. Very minimal whip compared to the barbells I've owned. It's an overall spectacular bar. I highly recommend it to anyone that seriously lifts.
Date published: 2018-12-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Bar I upgraded to this bar recently and decided to splurge on the Stainless Steel version to guarantee that I won't have any issues with rust. This is going to be my forever bar and I couldn't be anymore pleased. The knurling is spot on, sticks to my hand, yet doesn't feel like my skin is ripping off. The only thing I wished is that Rogue offered a smooth sleeve option. I can't stand the zipping sound when loading plates. It will also chip off paint off of steel plates. Minor gripe though considering how great everything else is about this bar.
