Additional Key Features of the Froning Cerakote Ohio Bar:

  • 1Cerakote Finish + Exclusive Athlete Design

    Cerakote has been a game changer in the industry; a polymer-ceramic composite coating first popularized in the gun industry for its durability in thin applications. Offering wear and corrosion resistance up to 100X that of black zinc, it’s a finish worthy of the greatest athletes in the world. The versatility of this finish also enables us to create a wider array of customized Rogue Athlete designs for our flagship Ohio Bar, including the murdered-out look and R* branding of the Froning Edition.

  • 2190,000 PSI Steel

    The steel in our Cerakote Ohio Bars is manufactured in the US and has proven to be one of the best steel variants for a multi-purpose barbell. Each barbell shaft is ground and polished prior to machining, further ensuring a smooth finish and optimal performance.

  • 3Machining and Assembly

    Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio, with painstaking attention to detail. The Ohio knurling has been carefully refined over the years, as well, for a firm but non-abrasive grip (there is no center knurl). We assemble the Ohio Bar with a snap ring design and quality composite bushings, which act as bearing surfaces between the bar sleeve and bar shaft, producing normal “whip” during Oly weightlifting but enough stiffness to hold for heavy powerlifting.

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 197.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best all around bar I've ever used This bar is sexy. There's no way around it. The cerakote looks great, doesn't change the feel of the gnurl, and it's going to last forever. I'll definitely be buying more of these for the gym moving forward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect!!!!! I own both a red and gray cerakote along with a stainless. All with chrome sleeves. The bars are perfect. Something I’ve noticed is that the stainless and gray knurl is slightly more aggressive compared to the red. The bars are great and I highly recommend them. Spin is good. Whip is good. I prefer the chrome sleeves instead of the cerakote black because of less visible scratching. Great all around bars for a gym.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fraser Bar I purchased this bar about a month ago. It was on back order at the time, it shipped on the ladder end of the back ordered time frame. I have been quite pleased with the bar other than a rather small paint chip in the knurling part. Excellent bar for CrossFit. Knurling has just the right amount of grip without being overly aggressive. Would recommend and would buy another bar from Rogue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's just cool Everytime you walk into your gym and see the bar and it's tag line, it is instant motivation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar. We have a Beater Bar, an original Rogue Bar (V 1.0), a Bella Bar and now an Ohio. Out of them all, the Bella and the Ohio are tops. Both feel like a precision device and balance and handle really well, with the Rogue Bar being right on their heels. The Ohio feels smoother with slightly less sharpness to the knurling, but stiffer. The original Rogue Bar feels a bit more whippy under load. All of them are excellent, but have their own uniqueness.
