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 314.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommend I've had the same barbell for the better part of 15 years and never realized how bad it was. I decided somewhat on a whim that I should upgrade. The big 3 lifts are generally in all of my programs with little to no olympic lifting. I wanted center knurling. I picked up the stainless bar. First impression was that it was very well made. Simply great finish and looks the business. The knurling is perfect for me. I've had cheap bars with barely any knurling and over-aggressive knurling that is painful to hold. The OPB has a perfect balance in being grippy but not hard on the hands. I work a desk job, so my hands are not very tough. Everything from the feel of the bar on the hands, to the sound re-racking the bar, and nice spin of the bushings screams quality. I expect to have this bar for the rest of my life and not need another power bar. AND, shipping was only 2 days ground.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I am so super glad I got this bar after researching every bar available from other companies. Everything about it, every feature, craftsmanship, machining, knurling, cerakote, bushings, absolutely all perfection. You cant go wrong with a Rouge bar. Unless you use bad form. Lol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The work horse! I needed a main power bar for my garage gym and I couldn't stay away from the OPB. Absolute beast of a bar, the 29mm is a comfortable grip, no whip at all for heavier squats, knurling is just enough bite without being over the top and has an amazing look in the black Cerakote finish! I chose the Cerakote finish because it just simply looks better and lasts longer to a pretty drastic humidity differential in my ill insulated garage gym. Overall perfect bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bar I needed a bar with center knurling for squats. At least this one won't bend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Quality Craftsmanship. This bar is a work of art. It's the first quality bar I've purchased other than typical cheap kit bars, love the knurling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome feel Went from a cheap sporting goods store bar to this one. Love it. Made lifting much more enjoyable, the bearings feels great, the grip is amazing, couldnt say anything bad about it!
Date published: 2019-10-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar Had the bar for about a month. It's the best power bar I have used. Knurling is perfect, rough and grippy, without being sharp like a Texas power bar. I use it for everything except power cleans. Cleans would not feel good with that center knurl. If there is one improvement I would like to see it would be to make the center knurling less aggressive.
Date published: 2019-09-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bars This is my 2nd bar I have in my home arsenal from Rogue. Along with the Ohio Power Bar I recently recieved, I also have an Ohio Deadlift Bar. The superior build quality, and the feel of the raw steel with just the right amount of knurling is second to none. I am very satisfied with my my recent purchases and I highly recommend them.
