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.

9 months in and the red cerakote is still perfect!
Been using this nearly everyday for 9 months, as have two of my garage gym buddies. The red still looks beautiful. A little oil and brushing and I can make it look perfect every time. The black sleeves take a beating but they still look good enough to me. I mainly use this bar for benching, shoulder press, squats, and bicep curls. It's a great bar. My only complaint is that the cerakote has a bit of a slippery feel at times. Not a big deal. When it feels that way I chalk up. I'm guessing that a bare steel bar has a warmer and grippier feel to it.

Superb coating
I bought this about two months and the coat has been holding up really well given the number of times I accidentally banged it into the rack. The knurling is perfect.

Improperly lathed sleeve
I bought this bar with the expectation it was made with the highest standard given the price tag ($500+ with shipping.) Unfortunately, it has not lived up to the hype, as one of the sleeves is lathed to an improper dimension. As a result, I’m forced to pound/hammer/kick plates in order to weight the bar. The same goes for their removal. Plates can be added to the other end without difficulty. Because of this difficulty, I rarely use it and my fiancée avoids it all together. I thought I was paying for quality, so it’s quite dissappointing. In retrospect, I would’ve been better off buying a cheap bar locally and replacing it when needed.

Rust
These bars will rust. They will rust regardless if you are using them or not. They were in my garage as a spare if I needed to work out at home and didn't have time to go to the gym. I'm very dissatisfied with this product and when I called customer service, I was basically told, it's steel what did you expect! I now have an orange bar from rust.

We are sorry to see this finish option did not meet your needs. A bar steel bar can provide superior grip by eliminating the plating between the knurl and your hand. However, a bare steel bar will oxidize and require regular maintenance. This will lead to a beautiful patina over time. This is how bars were made for decades, and it really does product an unmatched feel. For those looking to avoid the maintenance we do offer stainless steel Cerakote, zinc and E-Coat finish options. These options and their resistance to oxidation can be viewed on the oxidation scale on this page.
