Additional Key Features of the Froning Cerakote Ohio Bar:

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.

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.

*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.

Rogue Athlete Cerakote Ohio Bar - Froning Edition is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 274.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional quality and craftsmanship I've been doing CrossFit and Olympic Lifting for 2 years now, and just using the bars at my gym, which has an array of Rogue bars. I figured it was time to invest in my own, and the Ohio Bar, was worth the investment. The grip is impeccable, the thickness of the bar is just right, and the spin is perfect for squat cleans, snatches and a variety of movements. I would highly recommend investing in a barbell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every cent My kid and I bought this bar and had it customized for us. It wasn't cheap, but we could not be more thrilled. Gorgeous, feels great in the hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality bar for my garage gym Great knurling (not too rough, not too light), low maintenance, high quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bar, but don't get cerakote selves. The bar is great, however if I would purchase another or again I would definitely get the chrome selves. The Cerakote wares off very easily on the sleeves from putting on bumper plates. I noticed the wear after 3 uses. When I contacted Rogue they said that wear from metal on metal contact is expected... this was a disappointing reply. I did not expect this at all seeing as cerakote is toughed for its durability. Now, my bar that is supposed to be maintenance free will require normal steel bar maintenance (which defeats the purpose of choosing this specific bar). Rogue was unwilling to offer any type of compromise or send me replacement chrome sleeves even inside of the return window. Im giving 4 stars because otherwise the bar is as advertised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, great medium knurl, look, fit & finish Awesome, great medium knurl, look, fit & finish and overall feel. Sleeves DO have a very slight rib to them, in case you're into that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar I purchased the Ohio Bar a while back when initially re-outfitting my garage gym. I also went with stainless as I'm the only person using it and didn't want to necessarily have to stay completely on top of bar maintenance, etc. So far its been great. The knurl is really nice and with the stainless (close to bare steel) finish it just feels great in your hand. The spin on the collars is somewhere between okay and good. I'm doing limited movements that benefit from that so its sufficient for my needs. If you're doing a lot of olympic movements, etc maybe try to check one out before to get an idea and make sure its up to what you're looking for. When I got this bar I didn't really think the lack of center knurl was going an issue, but after a few months of linear progression and getting my squat weights up I found things a bit unstable on my back so I recently "upgraded" to the Ohio Power Bar which has now become my go-to bar. I still like this bar though and continue to use it for cleans and presses and could see swapping it in on occasion for other lifts. Had I planned things a little bit better I might have considered a Chan Bar (so if you're not familiar check it out), but think pressing might be a challenge with that due to the wider area before knurling starts. But no regrets, and personally I like stainless if you can swing it (and maybe if its not for commercial use given the f-scale stuff - but for you and/or a few friends at your home gym, should be great, especially if you take care of it)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to my garage gym I've been wanting a ROGUE barbell since I got into lifting a few years back. Loved the American made quality, and then I saw one with an American flag on it. I had to have it. After 2 years of dedicated gym time, my wife begrudgingly let me order it. I'm so glad I did. Everything about it is great. Eventually I want all ROGUE gear, will take me a while to convince the missus!
