$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

Orders placed before 3pm ship from Rogue HQ the same day. You can then follow the progress of your package online via the Rogue Shipping Tracker.

*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 268.
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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite bar to WOD wtih I've had this bar for about a month and it is my far my favorite bar for Metcon's. The finish on it looks very sharp and the knurling is perfect as its bit aggressive which I like. I rarely have to use chalk on this bar as it grips so easily. I love the fact that it's stainless steel and I don't have to worry about it rusting as quick as the other bars which is worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels Amazing I bought this barbell for my home gym as it might be spending time in my garage and stainless steel is most weather resistant. The bonus is knurling with stainless just feels perfect in your hands. We have coated Rogue 2.0 bars at my gym which I always enjoyed, but this feels so much better. I absolutely recommend, and I am pretty sure you cannot get another quality stainless barbell anywhere near this price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1.5 year review This bar is my favorite item out of a large order. I haven't cleaned it once and it looks almost perfect still, if I cleaned it it would look brand new. Unexpectedly, I like not having a center knurl. You only need a center knurl for squatting with a shirt and shirts have no place in a home gym. I spent too much time debating on all the other options, this one requires no maintenance and can be used for everything.
