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 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.

  • 6Fast Rogue Shipping

    Rogue prides itself on fast, professional shipping. If your bar is ordered by 3PM EST Monday-Friday, it will ship same day. Your bar will be packaged safely and ship fast. You can follow the progress of your order using the Rogue Shipping Tracker.

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
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.

*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 344.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Echo bar I ordered the Ohio power bar, but the knurling was way too sharp for me. I was able to easily return it and exchange it for the Echo bar. The Echo is perfect for my needs. I do general lifting to support my Jiu Jitsu and it's perfect. The knurling is better for me on the Echo, and the quality of the bearings and bar itself are still high. It will outlast me I'm sure. Highly recommended! And Rogue has great customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Agressive Knurling It's a great bar, aggressive knurling... So much so it tore my hands up the first time doing deadlifts on it. Would definitely recommend if you are in the market for an affordable bar that has multiple uses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bar but Metal Splinter I have had the bar for about a month. It has definitely met my expectation after reviewing tons of written reviews on this website as well as the well-respected Garage Gym Reviews Youtube channel. It's honestly hard to find much negative online about the bar. HOWEVER, I deduct one-star due to metal fragments leftover on the bar. Only resulted in one metal splinter so far. After that, I rubbed it down with a microfiber cloth to try to remove the fragments. With how Rogue hangs their hat on their high quality, I am disappointed that something as obvious as clean-up after machining/assembly is not done for the customer. Bottom Line: Great Bar. Just one minor flaw in my eyes which is not something you'll have to deal with for the lifetime of the bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar Great for my garage gym. It will probably be the only bar I’ll ever need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Rogue purchase, won’t be the last Bought the Cerakote OPB about a month ago and have used it for daily workouts since. It’s my new go-to bar: great knurling, looks sleek as can be and just feels right during reps. Glad I went with this finish and this bar. I’ll be back for other products. Shipped quick, all the things you read about are true.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Competition spec Power Bar at amazing price After ordering calibrated plates, i needed a comp spec power bar. I contemplated between the kabuki power bar and the Rogue 20k Ohio Power Bar. I have never actually used the Kabuki bar so i scratched that idea quickly,but I have used the Eleiko Power bar many times. Having used both the Eleiko and Rogue 20kg Ohio Power Bar, this bar was an easy decision coming in at half the price of an Eleiko. The knurling is a little on the aggressive side, but definitely not unbearable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bar Finally got one of these stepping up from a regular no name cheap bar. What a difference when deadlifting and benching with a quality bar. The knurling is incredible and the flex is perfect. Happy with the Color blue I got also

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rogue Ohio Power Bar 45lb This is by far the best Barbell I have ever used. I have lifted since JR. High and I am now 50. I can’t remember a bar feeling this good in my hands... Bravo Rogue Excellent Job on the knurling!!! I will be adding more Rogue Bars to my home gym immediately!!
