Product Description

MEN'S 20KG MULTI-PURPOSE BARBELL

Part of our custom Athlete Series, this special edition of the Cerakote Ohio Bar features exclusive colorways and graphics inspired by Rogue athlete and five-time CrossFit Games champion, Mat Fraser. The 20KG, 190,000 PSI barbell is fully machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio and includes bronze bushings with standard Ohio Bar end caps.


UNIQUE TO THE FRASER EDITION:

The five-time “Fittest Man on Earth” is represented here with his own distinct colorway: combining a red cerakote finish on the shaft with proprietary matte black sleeves. The center of the shaft features Fraser's "Hard Work Pays Off" slogan in black. Opposite of the slogan is the Rogue logo in black.

CRAFTED FOR EXCELLENCE IN COLUMBUS, OH

The Fraser edition Ohio Bar is fully machined and assembled in Columbus, OH using US steel that strikes the perfect balance between whip for Olympic lifts and rigidity for heavy Powerlifting. The 190,000 PSI tensile strength shaft features dual knurl marks for Olympic Weightlifting (IWF) and Powerlifting (IPF), and our signature Ohio knurling pattern that is carefully refined for a solid yet non-abrasive grip suitable for multi-purpose strength training.

ENHANCED FEATURES

Best In Class Durability:  Engineered to withstand the increased demands that functional movements and Olympic lifts place on barbells today through overhead drops.  Read more here.

2X Quieter Performance: Refined with even stricter tolerances, precision-machined bronze bushings fit tighter around the shaft, and improved internal sleeve tolerances dampen sound and eliminate unwanted movement, ensuring a smoother and more stable lift.

Best In Class Durability

With a F-Scale rating of F8-R, the Fraser Bar is among the most durable barbells in its class. By optimizing materials and manufacturing techniques, the Fraser Bar has been engineered to withstand the increased demands that CrossFit, Olympic lifting and functional fitness place on barbells today.  Read more here.

LOW PROFILE SLEEVE DESIGN

Our matte black sleeve option uses a new, low profile, sleeve design that makes loading and unloading plates easier than ever.  The precision-machined sleeve is then treated with our proprietary matte black process, significantly enhancing its resistance to corrosion and impact. This treatment ensures that the sleeves retain their appearance for a much longer duration compared to traditional sleeve finishes.

Loading

2X QUIETER PERFORMANCE

Using precision machining, we are able to tighten the fit of the sleeve on the shaft which means a smoother spin, a more connected feeling while lifting and significant noise reduction.

How It's Made
1

FRICTION WELDING

The collars of the sleeves are friction welded, creating the strongest sleeves in the industry. This bond is as strong as if machined from a single piece of steel, while saving on waste and cost. 

Rogue Work Hardening
2

Rogue Work Hardening

Our patented, proprietary process more than doubles the durability and lifespan of the barbell shaft compared to our competitors. 

Cerakote Shaft Finish
3

Cerakote Shaft Finish

Cerakote delivers outstanding corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc—while also providing many color options. This polymer-ceramic composite coating was first popularized in the firearm industry for its unique durability in thin applications.

Proprietary Sleeve Finish
4

Proprietary Sleeve Finish

Our matte black sleeve option involves a new process that effectively transforms the surface of the steel rather than coating it. This transformation significantly enhances the sleeves’ corrosion resistance, impact resistance, and abrasion resistance. 

State-of-the-art Gauging
5

State-of-the-art Gauging

We use gauging normally employed in the aerospace industry to ensure that every bar that makes it to a customer is exactly as designed.

Barbell Durability

RUST RESISTANCE

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.

BARBELL DURABILITY

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.

Loading
Loading

F SCALE™ APPLICATION

How a barbell is used will affect its durable lifespan and it's a key factor in determining what type of F Rating™ might be suitable for your gym's needs. This graph correlates the F Rating™ of a barbell with different types of usage in order to predict the durable lifespan. Using this data, we are able to make recommendations on what F Rating™ is appropriate for different training situations. With a rating of F8-R, the Ohio Bar is rated to last 16 years in a high volume CrossFit gym and will outlast a lifetime of lifting in an Olympic Weightlifting gym, a home gym or a Powerlifting gym.

F-RATING

Our barbells are tested by a third-party to determine their F-Rating, or fatigue resistance, which is a measured representation of the durability of the barbell.

Loading

BARBELL BUSHINGS

Precision bronze bushings provide reliable fast spin while being exceptionally durable when subjected to impact from being dropped.

Loading

WHAT IS ROGUE WORK HARDENING?

Rogue Work Hardening (RWH) is our patented process for treating the shafts of our barbells to improve their durability. 

Loading

BARBELL WEIGHT

20KG is the standard for most Powerlifting Federations, Men's Olympic Weightlifting and Men's CrossFit competitions.

Loading

BARBELL WHIP

The amount of springback provided by the bar that can be used by the lifter to increase the weight they can lift in dynamic movements.

Loading

BARBELL DIAMETER

The 28.5mm diameter falls directly between the 28mm Olympic and 29mm Powerlifting standard diameters.

Loading

MADE IN THE U.S.A.

Made from US steel, the Rogue Ohio Bar is machined and assembled at the Rogue factory in Columbus, OH.

Loading

TENSILE STRENGTH

Expressed in PSI, tensile strength measures the maximum weight a barbell can support before deforming. The 190K tensile strength falls within the optimal range of not bending under normal use, yet not been inflated to the point that it will shorten the life of the bar.

Loading

BARBELL KNURLING EXPLAINED

Our signature knurl, designed for multi-purpose use, provides a firm grip without being abrasive. This falls in the middle of the road on the knurl scale, striking a balance without being overly aggressive or passive.

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
2

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.

Machining and Assembly
3

Machining and Assembly

Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio, with painstaking attention to detail. The 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 bronze bushings, which act as bearing surfaces between the bar sleeve and bar shaft, producing enough spin for Oly weightlifting, but with enough control for powerlifting.

Excellent build quality
I received my new ohio bar in mid February. I have used it many times since receiving it and I have to say the fit and finish is absolutely perfect. I have a small home gym so my bar has been banged around a little bit from the holder to the rack and have yet to see any chips or flacking. The sleeves have some scratches from loading plates but the finish still looks good. The plates are a little tricky getting them off due to the grooves on the sleeves but for me I would rather that than slick sleeves. I don't think anyone can go wrong order rogue bars. I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase. Thanks Rogue for another awesome product.

Fantastic customer service
I bought a green cerakote bar that arrived with a small chip on the end. For the money I spent I wanted perfection so I sent them an email. They made it right and instantly sent out a replacement bar. The new bar is perfect and well worth the money. Thanks Rogue for being there for your customers!

Great bar…
The first bar I got from Rogue. Love this thing. The Cerakote finish and knurling it are just right. I use it mainly for Olympic lifts as I also got the Ohio Power Bar to do bench, DL and squats. I’m not an expert in barbells, but this one just feels right and works really well for me. Just buy it now. Do it. You will not regret.

Ohio Bar - Cerakote (Blue/Chrome)
I’ve been doing CrossFit for 10+ years now. This is my first time purchasing a barbell. I purchased this bar two days ago. I came home today and found it waiting for me at home. Shipping was crazy fast which was a nice surprise. The packaging the bar came wrapped in was heavy duty. I’m talking THICK. It literally took me over 15 minutes to unwrap it. I felt like it was Christmas day and someone triple wrapped my Christmas present. I appreciate the amount of packaging to ensure my bar wasn’t damaged in transit. My bar looks amazing and I’m very excited to try it out. I’m assuming it will hold up great but I’ll update my post when I feel that it has been enough time to test it. My thanks to the Rogue Team. Keep doing what you’re doing. God Bless America.

This is not acceptable!!!!
I purchased this bar just a week ago, and to my dismay, I've only managed to use it twice. However, what's truly disheartening is the noticeable scratches that have emerged all along the sleeves on both ends. This was certainly not what I anticipated, and I find myself utterly let down by this. Despite my attempts to remedy the situation by cleaning the scratches with both dry and wet cloths, they stubbornly refuse to vanish. Thanks
