Rogue Cerakote Ohio Bar - Fraser Edition

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 black composite bushings with standard Ohio Bar endcaps.

Unique to the Fraser Edition:

The 2016 and 2017 “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.

*Please Note: The optional Proprietary Matte Black metal treatment process also hardens the steel, which can cause some additional friction with plates that have a chamfer.

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.

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.

Plates difficult to put on/off
I bought the bar with the black ends 3 months ago and it’s been nothing but problems getting plates on/off the bar. There are little grooves on the ends of the bar, unlike a smooth chrome bar, and the plates catch on them. So, after a tough set I’m stuck holding a bar up for a long time struggling to wiggle plates off a little at a time. The bar looks cool, but I wish I had gone with the regular smooth chrome ends.

Thank you for your feedback! All of our sleeves - Chrome, Cerakote and Proprietary Matte Black will have these grooves. The Proprietary Matte Black metal treatment process also hardens the steel, which can cause some additional friction with plates that have a chamfer.

My favorite thing in my gym!
This is the nicest barbell I’ve ever touched. The cerakote finish is durable and feels amazing. The sleeves are just as nice. Knurling gives great grip without being too aggressive. Spin is great. It requires minimal maintenance. If you’re going to splurge on one thing for your gym, get the Ohio Bar!

Red Cerakote / Black Sleeves
I had the red cerakote / black sleeve bar for about 6 weeks now in the home gym. I thought (for some unknown reason) that the "Proprietary Matte Black" sleeves would hold up better than cerakote sleeves. I was very wrong. First plate I put on the sleeve scraped off the coating. Now after 6 weeks of use, they are worn considerably. I don't like it, but don't really care too much either. Just wanted to let anyone who may think this Proprietary Matte Black finish will hold up, it won't. I want the Chan bar as well but I'll go with chrome sleeves on that one. Other than that, it's a great bar. The red cerakote looks awesome. Knurling is fairly passive but I like having it in the gym.

One the best bars/equipment I bought. I love the color and how it feels. I do wish for a more aggressive knurling.

$400 Coated Bar being Ground away
Let me start off with, I have rogue pretty much everything. Rack, Weights, Bella Bar for the wife, etc I bought this bar a week ago, to replace a different brand that rusted over. I was excited to get this bar, because I know the quality that I normally get. The problem is the coating on the ends where the plates slide on and off. I don't know if they added too much or the bar itself is out of spec, but I can barely put on or take off a ROGUE BRAND RUBBER PLATE. The point of the coating was so I didn't have another rusted bar, but its just grinding on and off every time I put on weight. So what was the point of paying this much for a defective bar, that already has it coating ruined? The woman's bar that I have has the same black oxide coating for the ends and I have zero issues with that one. I am attaching a picture. very disappointed overall with this purchase

Thank you for posting! Our Proprietary Matte Black metal treatment process also hardens the steel, which can cause some additional friction with plates that have a chamfer. These sleeves should be able to be wiped down with no issue. Our team is reaching out now to confirm.

Cerakote not worth it
When I received this bar the packaging was badly damaged, like the bar could slide right out of the tube. The coating was damaged upon arrival but it is functionally good. The bar has really good knurling and spin.

Well made, high quality barbell
Just wanted to throw in my 5 stars for this barbell. I got the blue cerakote and it has held up very well over the last 3 years. I didn’t know much about gym equipment at the time and a Rogue employee recommended I get the regular Ohio bar. He was right. This all around bar is good for bench/shoulder pressing, squats, and deadlifts. The knurling is just right for me without chalk, but I don’t lift heavy. I like how there is no knurling in the middle so that I can comfortably do front squats and shoulder press (in case I accidentally brush my chin). All in all, I highly recommend this bar.
