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.

Nice and Aggressive
I've been using this barbell for a couple weeks now and it's awesome. The aggressiveness of the grip is just right for me. Passive knurling makes my hands slip too much but this digs in nicely. I know my wife doesn't like it as much as she has softer hands. I have callused hands from work so it works great for a guy like me.

WOW! BLOWN AWAY! THIS IS A GAME CHANGER!
I debated on getting this bar for a while, I had a generic Olympic bar for the past 5 years and decided to upgrade my home gym. I was debating between the Ohio Bar and Power Bar. I went with the power bar for because of the center knurl and so happy I did! This bar is a game changer, didn't realize how bad my old bar was until I got the Ohio Power Bar. Do not hesitate to buy this folks, it is worth every dollar!

Great Bar, Poor Colour Representation
The knurl and construction on this bar is exceptional. As is to be expected with Rogue's quality. The bushings/lubrication is smooth, the bar is sturdy and stiff, which makes it feel great while lifting. My big complaint is the poor colour representation with the OD Green Cerakote. I have other OD Green items from Rogue, and the pictures don't accurately portray the final product. The Green you get is more of an earth-tone Green compared to OD. (Picture attached for reference). I would have ordered Red/Black had I known this was the case.

Love it
It feels perfect. Better than I imagine. If you’re used to regular public gym barbells like I used to be, this will feel like a new world.

Stainless Steel Is The Way!
I have owned two of the Stainless Steel versions of this barbell for approximately seven months. One of these bars is my daily workhorse. The other bar I use mostly when I want to superset multiple barbell exercises. Point being, both bars get a lot of use. I've been fortunate enough in the past to have had access to some of the best barbells on the market. I only mention this to say, when comparing head to head, IMO, the all stainless OPB is the best barbell you can buy for the money. Are there nicer barbells you can buy? Yes. Are they several hundred dollars better than the OPB? I would say that's a definite NO! The knurling on the OPB is the best of any bar I've ever used. Moderately sharp, but VERY grippy. I have no issues deadlifting with one if I want to do so with a straight bar. My favorite aspect of this barbell, outside of the beautiful finish, is how perfectly balanced it feels in hand. Combine this with the outstanding knurl and anti-corrosive finish and you've got an excellent barbell that will last a lifetime. I lift in a humid environment and both barbells have shown zero signs of rust. These bars require minimum maintenance. Brush the dead skin and chalk out of the knurl and give a drop or two of oil in the bronze bushings once in awhile and that's all that is required. I also wipe the gunk off the sleeves that my plates leave behind sometimes, but it's really not required. If I had any negatives, it would be that one of the bars arrived with a sleeve that had pretty bad spin. It would catch halfway through a rotation and stop spinning. I reached out to Rogue and, to my surprise, the rep was a little indifferent. The person suggested I oil the sleeve and made no other overtures to replace or repair. Not a huge deal, but I would have liked to have seen a better response than that. Oiling the bushings didn't help so ultimately, I removed the sleeve entirely, cleaned the shaft and the bushings as best I could, heavily oiled the contact points, replaced the sleeve and now it spins fine. It's a little annoying I had to go to this length to fix a brand new, $500 barbell on my own, but it did the trick, so that's all that matters. I would highly recommend this barbell to everyone.

Fantastic bar
This bar is awesome! The knurl on the bar is just right. It’s not supper aggressively. Once you go Rogue you won’t want another bar!
