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.

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.

Rogue Athlete Cerakote Power Bar - THOR Edition is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 204.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bare Steel Bar This was my first bar that I've bought and I have had it for about a year now. The bar it's self is strong and versatile. If you are on a budget it's good. That said, I live in a place can have dramatic shifts in weather (hot to cold) so the bar started to rust within a month of receiving it. Not Rouges fault, as I said it's a great bar. I just didn't realize how quickly it would happen. It's not an issue if you don't mind cleaning it every month or three, which is what I do. But, if I could do it all over again I would have spent the extra money and gotten any one of the slightly more expensive bars with some kind of protective coating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best, bar none. This bar is awesome. Good spin on the sleeves. This bar is the Goldilocks of knurling, not too smooth, not too rough, just right. Use it for everything and the cerakote finish has held up great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good workmanship, at a budget value. This bar is of excellent quality, at a remarkably low price. If you like to lift heavy, and hit PR's, but don't need anything fancy, GET THIS BAR!!! Simple as that. In addition, the feel of a bar with a natural, uncoated finish, and aggressive knurling is like nothing you've ever experienced. No exaggeration. Invest in your fitness. Get this bar. ou won't be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect powerlifting bar I purchased the bare steel model and could not be happier. I live in a very low-humidity climate (AZ), so bare steel just made sense considering so many of the other reviewers stating that they wished they had gone bare steel instead of zinc. The knurling on this bar is perfect. It is pretty aggressive, but it is not sharp. You won't cut your hands on it or anything like that, but it will take a few sessions to get comfortable with. The bar sticks to your hand. Just crazy. Chalk is a thing of the past for me. No idea about corrosion as I've only had it a month, but I brush a small amount of 3-in-1 oil into the bar once every four weeks. It takes two minutes which is a very small price to pay for such a beautiful and functional piece of equipment. At $250, this thing is worth every penny and then some. Just buy it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Made a Great Choice I bought a blue Cerakote Ohio Bar and it exceeded my expectations starting when I first Iaid eyes on it. The Cerakote is beautiful, and I swear that I worked harder on that first deadlift session with my own bar. I highly, highly recommend this bar.
