Rogue Ohio Power Bar - Cerakote

Our 29MM Ohio Power Bar is now available in a Cerakote shaft 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. All colorways feature our new Proprietary Matte Black sleeves, finished through a process that effectively transforms the surface of the steel rather than coating it, greatly increasing the sleeves’ long-term corrosion resistance and color endurance.

KEY FEATURES OF THE CERAKOTE OHIO POWER BAR

Loading
1

Cerakote 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.

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, as well as our new Proprietary Matte Black sleeves for longer lasting color and performance.

Loading
3

Aggressive 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.

Lifetime 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.

*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.

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.

Very high quality
Have yet to use this barbell but man it looks amazing! The quality is unreal! The knurling feels aggressive but not over the top. I have the SS with SS sleeves. I will say that I'm a bit disappointed that there's a small ding in the sleeve for how much I spent on it but I don't want to lower the rating just cause of that. But other than that it's great. I will say I'm pretty inexperienced to probably most on here, and I came from using a cheapo barbell to basically the Ferrari of barbells lol.

Best Power Bar for Everyday Powerlifting Training
This is the first power bar I have ever purchased. Rogue took only a few hours to ship out the order and it took only a week or so to arrive. I purchased a Proloc Blocker and a pair of HG collars along with this OPB--I can't be more content with this purchase. All items in the order arrived in perfect condition, thanks to Rogue's deliberate packaging. Went with the black zinc variation because it is more rust-resistant than bare steel and less pricey than stainless steel--perfect for day-to-day training! Overall, this is a great bar for the general powerlifting enthusiasts and I cannot be happier!
