$375.00

Rogue Cerakote Ohio Bar - Froning Edition

Part of our custom Athlete Series, this special edition of the Cerakote Ohio Bar features exclusive colorways and graphics inspired by CrossFit legend and longtime Rogue athlete Rich Froning. The 20KG, 190,000 PSI barbell is fully machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, and includes black composite bushings with standard Ohio Bar endcaps.

Unique to the Froning Edition:

The bar's blackout design—featuring a black cerakote shaft and black cerakote sleeves—is a no-nonsense nod to the four-time "Fittest Man on Earth." A silver Froning “R*” logo is also centered on one side of the shaft with a silver Rogue logo on the other.

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.

Fast Rogue Shipping

*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 258.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks INCREDIBLE, Feels incredible, well done. FREEDOM BAR- I dont keep the heat on in my garage room temp can swing hot cold and build moisture on my gym equipment. I wanted a bar that will have the extra protection from elements. I have an old Ohio black zinc bar that has done well over 5 years but is showing signs of wear and has been for some time. This cerakote coating is much more durable. It has less of a rough knurl feel because of the coating, but it actually works out better for high rep cycling of the bar bell. You dont tear hands as easy. The cerakote also gives it a "sticky" feel when your hands are chalked up. Love this bar. Dropping it with weights it does not clang around, it was built tight, excellent bushings and leaves more of a solid "thud" when it hits the ground. Last but not least, it is by far the best looking bar bell ever made!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Thsn Bars At Our Box This is the best bar I’ve ever held in my hands. The Knurl, balance, feel, color, are off the charts. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bar ever The ladies love it, the guys love it, I love it. It's knurled perfectly, it's top notch quality, and it supports breast cancer awareness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A solid barbell All I need to say is that this is a solid barbell. The knurling is great for high repetition movements, yet grippy enough for olympic lifts. I do wish Rogue would offer this with chrome sleeves though, not a big fan of the bright zinc finish. Overall, I am sure this bar will last me forever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Great Bar This bar has just the right amount of knurling and whip for all the main lifts!(squat/bench/deadlift). Works great for any Olympic lift as well with smooth transition and bearings that react to speed! The only reason I can’t give a 5 star rating is because no center knurl for squatting. I own the Power Bar as well, this is my go to for squats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bar For Your Buck The grip is on-point. The black finish looks amazing!
