$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 250.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar I love this Ohio Barbell! The Ohio Barbell was already a great bar for all around gym use and the fact they offer cerakote colors to fit your personal flavor is perfect! The cerakote on the sleeves does scratch fairly quickly but I don’t mind I think it looks badass compared to the standard chrome bars! Plus I have a garage gym in SWFL so the chrome and everything gets rusty and fades super quick from the constant humidity! But this Ohio Bar with the red and black has been working out for me perfectly! I will buy another soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar I'm no pro, but I've moved my share of heavy stuff in the gym. Bar is great, knurling is grippy without feeling like it may take your skin off. And it's blue. Pleased all around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Making the Workout Great Again Crushing to the Red, White and Blue every morning. Setting a new PR almost everyday with this Freedom loving Rogue bar. Semper Fi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vera Koye Bar review First of all, the orange looks freaking sick. Very happy with the bar. Pretty sure it helps me lift more just because it looks cool. Great product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Bar I use this bar for olympic and power lifts both. It is the most versatile bar for the money, imho. For reference, I regularly deadlift/squat over 500 and overhead over 300.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best barbell Great barbell! I use this bar 3-6 days a week in my SML-2 for general strength training and it has performed spectacularly over the last few months. I PRed all of my "power" lifts with this this barbell. This barbell is great for bench pressing and deadlifts but it has no whip at all even with 300lbs + on it so keep that in mind if you plan on doing Oly lifts. Also, the stainless steel feels amazing in hand and looks so much better than a black zinc bar. My gym has black zinc and after a few months they look like garbage so go with stainless and it will look great forever. Gripe 1: No center knurl. It's silly that a multi purpose barbell is not designed to be back squatted. I am aware that the Chan bar has a center knurl but the outer knurl starts way too wide for sumo deadlifts or close grip bench press. Also, the Chan bar doesn't come in Stainless. I wanted to purchase ONE bar to do everything but that bar simply does not exist. An Ohio Bar with center knurl would be the last barbell Rogue would ever have to make. Gripe 2: I would have tried out the Cerakote bar but I was offended at the obscene Rogue Branding. I'm not buying a Louis Vuitton purse where I need gaudy branding to validate my existence.
