The Ohio Bar - Cerakote - Rich Froning Edition
$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 298.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh This is the primary bar at the gym I go to. It's a semi-commercial gym with brand new equipment. The gym has been open for about 6 months or so now. A few of the bars are already warped/bent. Almost all don't spin freely ... mind you, they likely have never been lubricated/maintained, but for under a year's worth of use? Seems pretty poor. Yes, the bar is subject to your typical commercial gym ape, but I've seen idiots doing heavy rack pulls at my other gym that uses a different brand that maintain their straightness. I would not recommend this bar. I personally own an Ohio Power Bar and love the heck out of it. I would definitely opt for that over this bar. Even for oly lifts, the bearings on this bar don't seem to hold up well. JMHO.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't ask for more Cerakote finish is holding up great using outdoors and looks pretty sweet too. Knurling is perfect for my liking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bar I have had this bar for 2 months and it has been awesome. Packaging was A+ as one would expect and it has added a quality to my garage gym than any bar out there. The knurl on the bar is perfect for me and my wife who use the bar. It is definitely our daily driver and it hasn’t not failed us. Best Bar out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought 3 of these I bought these bars for a Cross Fit style class that we run. I didn't fully understand the difference that a quality bar could make until we received these. Absolutely love these bars and will be purchasing more in the future.
