Rogue Athlete Cerakote Power Bar - THOR Edition

Special Price $395.00

Regular Price: $395.00

* Required Options

Inspired by Rogue Athlete and world-class Strongman Hafþór Júlíus "Thor" Björnsson, the exclusive THOR EDITION Ohio Power Bar is available here in 20KG and 45LB versions, each featuring our new ultra-durable Cerakote finish. These 29mm bars are fully machined and assembled in Columbus, OH, and—like the standard Ohio Power Bar—they include a 205,000 PSI steel shaft, single powerlifting knurl marks, and center knurling.

As a tribute to Hafthor Bjornsson’s seven-year reign as Iceland’s Strongest Man, the black cerakote shaft in this design also features the Icelandic flag to the right of the center knurl and the nickname THOR in white to the left. Cerakote is a unique polymer-ceramic composite coating—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.

What Sets the THOR Bars Apart:

  • 1Cerakote Finish w/ Exclusive THOR Branding

    Cerakote has been a game changer in the industry; a durable color finish—first popularized in the gun industry— that’s uniquely resistant to wear and corrosion over time. The versatility of this polymer-ceramic composite coating has enabled new, custom athlete designs like the THOR EDITION Ohio Power Bar, which includes mountainous strongman Hafthor Bjornsson’s nickname and the blue, red & white of his native Icelandic flag on the cerakote shaft.

  • 2205,000 PSI Steel

    The Ohio Power Bar’s 29mm diameter steel shaft boasts a tensile strength of 205,000 PSI, delivering superior rigidity and virtually zero whip/flex. Machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, the bar also features a snap-ring design and quality bronze bushings for a smooth, consistent feel.

  • 3Aggressive Knurl

    The bar includes single powerlifting marks and a center knurl, each featuring a deep, coarse pattern that produces a reliable grip / stick without being sharp or abrasive. Perfecting this knurl pattern is both a science and an art. Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus on new Haas machines (built in the USA) and fine-tuned and personally tested by the Rogue team.

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.

Rogue Athlete Cerakote Power Bar - THOR Edition is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 179.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great bar great bar very nice knurl and grip great for squats and bench and deadlifts
Date published: 2018-05-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bar. Cheap coating I bought this bar around a month ago. Bar functions great. Knurling is great. Only thing I am unhappy with is the black coating. After a month of 2-3 times a week use the black is wearing off on the smooth portion between the knurling from my leg during deadlifts. Had I known the coating was going to come off this easy I wouldn’t have paid extra for it. Overall I would buy bar again just without paying for coating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best bar in the gym Great bar for heavy sets absolutely no whip I would highly recommend for any power lifters

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect bar Really awesome sturdy bar, knurling is super aggressive which helps on squats and deadlifts. No regrets at all
Date published: 2018-05-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for Performs as advertised and is a much better olympic bar than what I was using. You can tell it was precisely machined and made with quality in mind. The collar to collar spacing was slightly shorter than my old bar, which caused issues for me on bench press. The plates would sometimes clip the rack. Maybe the rack I use (Weider 396) is a little wider than standard? Not a big deal though since I bought this bar for squats and deadlift anyway. I just use the old bar for bench since it has a wider collar to collar spacing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just plain awesome Bought my own OPB and all I can say is the knurling feels amazing and just the bar in general.
Date published: 2018-05-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stainless Steel I have the Stainless Steel version and I absolutely love it. If you are worried about the knurling being too aggressive, it isn't. The knurling is absolutely perfect. The only issue that I have is the tiny metal shavings that get all over my hands every time I use the bar. Seems like ROGUE could have cleaned the shavings off the bar before they sent it to me. I assume they will all come off eventually.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sexy Barbell I’m glad I bought this. Now, whenever I’m looking in the mirror while I’m doing barbell bicep curls, I have a barbell that looks as sexy as me.
