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

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.

2

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.

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.

4

Part 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.

5

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.

I love these bars!
I bought two so far and do love them! My only complaint is you’re using a rack(I have two monster racks) make sure you have j cups with plastic cover the inside because the cherakote will rub off! The one bar I bought two weeks ago was already losing its cherakote… so I upgradedy j cups to the ones with plastic all on the inside… Btw I just bought another bar in blue and it’s good using it with the new j cup!

Love the bar and weights
I originally ordered a black zinc coated bar from these guys, then realized it was too beautiful to be smashing against my squat rack so it’s a dedicated standing overhead press and deadlift bar now and I ordered this bare steel one to take the beatings and it’s doing wonderful. Love the products from you guys!

I love this bar!
I purchased the stainless steel with Chrome sleeves version. Right out of the box the knurling felt amazing. I was used to the more passive knurl of a normal ohio bar so this aggressive knurl was a big step up. It would probably be too much for a brand new lifter but I love it. The bar sticks in my hands for deadlifts and is super solid on my back for squats. Bar stiffness is good, not much whip on the powerlifting movements. Love the stainless steel shaft. It's beautiful, it feels amazing with no coating between my hands and the bar. I considered the stainless sleeves but it was just a little too spendy for me. If the chrome ever wears off I'm fine putting a little oil on the shaft from time to time. It was the shaft I really wanted to avoid rust at all costs. All in all, I've loved this bar from the first moment I took it out of the tube. If you serious about powerlifting and want a bar to last a lifetime, seriously consider the stainless steel, you won't regret it.

Something's rattling...
This is the second Ohio bar I've bought directly from Rogue. The first bar was amazing, but this second one has a concerning rattle near the end of the bar somewhere. I can't quite identify where the sound is coming from but it makes me a bit nervous when going heavy. I really hope it's nothing major and the bar won't break during a lift. I'd send it back but the packaging and shipping would be a nightmare.
