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.

Rusting in less than a year
I bought this barbell wishing it wasn’t going to rust quick.. but that back fired on me… I have always kept my barbell in the rogue barbell bag, I tried not to use as much chalk since I heard that’s what makes it Rust This is the second bar.. I have already got one replaced and same thing is happening

Factors such as chalk usage and exposure to moisture rich environments can quicken oxidation rates. Based on this combination, we recommend frequent use of 3-in-1 oil and a nylon bristle brush. Our team is reaching out for further assistance!

Excellent Bar
I needed one bar that I could use for squats, deadlifts, bench, and everything else. This bar is fantastic with great knurling. Excellent choice, especially if you’re only going to buy one barbell.

Perfect bar
I absolutely love this bar. The knurling is perfect, and I love bare steel -- I have used a B&R bar for years and am familiar with the upkeep of a bare steel bar. I live in an arid climate, so only occasional maintenance is required. Brushing the chalk off the bar also helps prevent rusting. You can't beat a bare steel bar -- it feels great, no need to worry about coatings chipping off, and they slowly patina over time.

Covered in metal shavings
Recently purchased the stainless bar with stainless sleeves. My holy grail and the last bar I would ever need. I removed it from the sleeve and immediately noticed that the knurling was covered in metal shavings. I tried to brush them off, but they were falling in my eyes while bench pressing. I spent nearly 2 hours with a can of compressed air, nylon brush, and duck tape trying to remove all the shavings. No luck. My hands still look like they have glitter all over them after I grip the bar. Very disappointing craftsmanship from Rogue on a bar this expensive. Aside from that, it’s a good bar. The knurling isn’t as aggressive as my zinc coated Texas power bar; which was surprising. I prefer an aggressive knurl and might have to sell this one. I would consider the aggro, but since Rogue sends out uncoated bars covered in metal shavings, I probably won’t risk another try to the eye doctor for foreign body removal.
Metal shavings. This was after 2 hours of brushing the bar to remove them.

Great bar with aggressive knurling
As you can tell from all the other reviews, this is an excellent bar at a reasonable price. I got a bar with the black zinc coating, and the knurling is quite aggressive. I'm very happy with it, but just wanted to give a heads up in case people are looking for something smoother or more gentle on the hands. If so, black zinc is probably too harsh for you.
