Cerakote 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 red-and-black finish and slogan graphics of the Fraser Edition.

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.

3

Machining 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.

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.

*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.

Very happy customer
I don’t usually write reviews, but a great product and great customer service needs to be celebrated. The build quality of the bar is impeccable. The shipment was fast and the packaging was very robust. My bar arrived today and I have already put it to use. The bar is well worth the price.

Hard to see knurling
The bar looks cool and has great colors. The pink makes it hard to see the knurling, though.

Pure satisfaction
Honestly words can’t describe how I feel when I step up to my Ohio Cerakote bar, that feeling like you’ve already lifted the bar and hit that new PR. When I use quality gear I feel strong and when I feel strong I push beyond goals into new territories, it looks good, feels good in the hand, lots of color options to personalize it and make it your own. Made from quality steel from right here in America, I mean could it get any better? I love this barbell! #RogueFittness #Rogueforlife

Great Quality
No complaints about product as advertised. Would be nice to have option to get it with the loaded sleeve made out of stainless and the bar Cerakoted. That wasn't available when I got mine...

Love this bar, got cerakote to deal with the climate in my gym space. Has held up very well. Knurl is a little smoother than I’m used to but I don’t mind.

Well, it’s a bar I guess.
Starting out, the only reason I gave it 2 stars was because it does it’s job of holding plates. The Cerakote finish is absolute garbage. After putting on the plates and taking them for the first time the coating became significantly scratched and chipped. There is a significant cloud of cerakote dust that fills the air around the bar, and settles on the bar, the floor and walls around it. I reached out to rogue and was told this was absolutely normal, cerakote is not supposed to be resistant to abrasion. However I refused to believe that it should be this bad. Why? Because I have cerakote bars from other companies in my gym, none of them have behaved this way after a couple uses. I then reached out to cerakote to ask some questions. After exchanging a few emails an pictures I was told that my rogue bar probably had a poor application. However after the pictures were exchanged I was told the following… “ I noticed that the Cerakote looks pretty dry and chalky. This is a sign that when the coating was applied it was dry sprayed. When a Cerakote is dry sprayed it tremendously decreases the durability and adhesion.” I was told I should reach out to rogue by this kind cerakote rep, but I already had and was told this was normal behavior for their bar. Which makes me believe that this was not a poor application, but rather they do in dry sprayed for whatever reason they thought was best. Not a good look for a company that everyone tells me is the best. Will not be recommending to friend, family or my gym.
