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

Cerakote Strength + Custom Colors
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
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, as well as our new Proprietary Matte Black sleeves for longer lasting color and performance.

Aggressive Knurl
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.

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.

Lifetime Warranty
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.

Spent a lot of time deciding on which power bar to buy for my home gym. The ratings kept pointing me back to this option, so that's what I went with. This thing is flawless, I am beyond impressed. functions well on bench, squat, and deadlift. If you can afford to pay the extra for full stainless, I would highly recommend as it feels excellent in hand.

Amazing knurling
Knurling on this bar is a thing of beauty. Grippy yet not too aggressive on the skin. I went with SS everything, and while it did make my wallet cry I know it was a good investment that’ll last me a lifetime. It’s true what they say, buy nice or buy twice.

Perfect barbell!
I use this one for squats mainly, but sometimes bench press as well. It’s a fantastic bar with aggressive knurling (very nice to have to middle of the bar knurled for squats). I bought the cerakote one and it has held up perfectly, no signs of wear and tear. If I could only have one bar it would probably be the operator bar or the regular Ohio bar because I don’t often lift over 315 (unless I’m squatting heavy which I tend to do higher reps these days) so I don’t really notice that much whipping, esp with bench etc. and the grips being less aggressive make it a more versatile bar for deadlifts etc too. Having said all that, this bar is stout and I’m glad I have it! Highly recommend getting one especially if you already have the Ohio bar or operator bar

Great bar but coating wears off
The bar itself is high quality although the cerakote finish is already wearing off where the bar touches the rack. I wish I had known this because I paid extra money for a customized bar

Forever Bar
I have had my Ohio Power Bar for a little over a year at this point, and I have been using it three times per week with almost no interruptions. The overall quality is amazing and it still looks brand new. I make sure I never slam it or even drop it, and I clean it pretty regularly. Honestly, I expect to be using this for as long as I can lift.

Color rubs off almost immediately.
I wanted to upgrade my regular non-colored bars with colored ones that match our business colors. When they arrived they looked amazing! Unfortunately, within less than a week the color was already stripping off in chunks. I wish I had known it comes off so easily, especially considering I bought about 15 bars at close to $400 each.
