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 course without being sharp or abrasive. This makes the Ohio Power Bar a perfectly honed workhorse for the bench, squat, and deadlift.

The 45 LB 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.

  • 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.

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.

*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 177.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from best bar in the gym Great bar for heavy sets absolutely no whip I would highly recommend for any power lifters

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect bar Really awesome sturdy bar, knurling is super aggressive which helps on squats and deadlifts. No regrets at all

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for Performs as advertised and is a much better olympic bar than what I was using. You can tell it was precisely machined and made with quality in mind. The collar to collar spacing was slightly shorter than my old bar, which caused issues for me on bench press. The plates would sometimes clip the rack. Maybe the rack I use (Weider 396) is a little wider than standard? Not a big deal though since I bought this bar for squats and deadlift anyway. I just use the old bar for bench since it has a wider collar to collar spacing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just plain awesome Bought my own OPB and all I can say is the knurling feels amazing and just the bar in general.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stainless Steel I have the Stainless Steel version and I absolutely love it. If you are worried about the knurling being too aggressive, it isn't. The knurling is absolutely perfect. The only issue that I have is the tiny metal shavings that get all over my hands every time I use the bar. Seems like ROGUE could have cleaned the shavings off the bar before they sent it to me. I assume they will all come off eventually.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sexy Barbell I’m glad I bought this. Now, whenever I’m looking in the mirror while I’m doing barbell bicep curls, I have a barbell that looks as sexy as me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Centerpiece Bar for "slow" lifts I bought the bare steel ohio power bar with the middle knurl like 5 months ago. Squats, presses, and deadlifts should NOT be done on any other bar!! The knurl is very aggressive and digs in tight when it matters most. I can't imagine a more passive knurl being better for heavy lifts. The bare steel is holding up in my basement just fine. I put a white gun grease on the bushings right out the box and soaked the whole thing in 3-in-1 for like two days before buffing it dry with a shop rag and starting to lift it. This bar should be renamed the Strength-Training Bar. It is that dam perfect for the strength lifts! I love love love this bar. I would not recommend cleans or snatches on this bar however. The knurl might draw blood on your hands or collar-bone after several attempts. This is the PERFECT tool for "slow" lifts. Get a thinner, whippier, more passively knurled bar for your "fast" lifts. And also, the price is epic! 250$? That is a seriously great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A cheese grater for the unprepared This was my first barbell purchase from Rogue, and I was very impressed with the experience. The bar came very quickly. The finish on the bar is beautiful. The knurling is truly aggressive, however. It took me a month to be able to grip the thing without feeling pain, and I've been lifting weights for a while (albeit on and off) at commercial gyms. Heaven forbid you drag the knurling up your shins while deadlifting. This bar even leaves imprints of itself in your shoulders after squats! Otherwise, this barbell is fantastic. It's very rigid and makes you want to come back for more. It's an excellent addition to my home aside from a couple minor complaints: the knurling nearly ruins any other surface it gets in contact with because it's so rough. For example, it is already tearing up my J cup bar holders and safety spotter arms. Also, the bar flecks off some steel onto whatever it touches. Be sure to brush off the excess grains of metal before you begin to use it.
