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

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.

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.

Great bar!
We’ve had this Ohio power bar now for several months in our garage gym. Fantastic bar for powerlifting. We got the stainless finish and we’re very happy with it. Grip/knurling is rock solid. Would highly recommend this bar to anyone looking for a great powerlifting bar.

Amazing Feel
I bought my Ohio bar after having cheap bending old barbells and the difference between them is night and day. If you are thinking about buying an Ohio bar, I would highly suggest investing in one. The knurl, the solid feeling of the bar, and the black e coat all make this bar a must have for anyone looking to buy a bar.

Rogue Ohio Power Bar 45lb (OD Green Shaft w/ Black
This is my first ever barbell and i couldn't have chosen a better one. I like how it feels, I love the look and color. The Cerakore coating does not take away from the knurls aggressiveness. Just an amazing barbell. can't go wrong with it.

This is such a massive upgrade from my echo bar (which is also awesome). The knurling bites hard, the diameter is perfect and the stainless steel makes it feel special and premium every time I grab it.

Best bar I've ever used!
I've only ever used barbells in a commerical gym that were of low quality and had hardly any knurling, if not any at all. Once I started building my home gym my biggest priority was getting the best barbell reasonably within my budget. I splurged and got the stainless steel bar, and wow, what a world of difference. I already feel like I can deadlift more because the bar no longer slips out of my hands. I love being able to feel the center knurl stick to my back for squats.
