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 282.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing bar! This bar is truly amazing. You don't know what you are missing if you are using a cheap bar until you try this. Got the all black cerakote finish on the Ohio power bar. Loving it. Holding up well so far too (about a dozen workouts in). Knurling is aggressive but not sharp. Collars spin freely but not too much. I love the stiffness of the bar on bench and squat. This bar is a full 6 lbs heavier than my cheap CAP barbell (because this one actually weighs 45 lbs) and yet I could still follow my normal progression without adjusting the weight down. Overall, it just feels awesome in your hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bar for the big 3! Love this barbell! Knurling is aggressive without being overly sharp. Great customer service and quality product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great power bar for the money! Superior grip but won’t shred your hands. The bar stays put on low bar back squats and is solid with no Whip or bounce.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bar on Market In my opinion this is the best power lifting bar on the market at a good price as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Goldilocks power bar: it's "just right" This review is for the Stainless 20KG Ohio Power Bar. Of the seven barbells in my home gym, this is my favorite. It is absolutely stellar for most powerlifting movements (particularly squat, bench, bench press, and press). It's also the best choice for deadlifts if your PL federation mandates the use of a stiff bar for DL. I consider this my "Goldilocks" bar. It's just right. Knurling is consistent and sufficiently grippy without being overly aggressive... it's "just right" for a power bar. The 29mm shaft is very stiff, as it should be for a power bar. It exhibits almost no whip. Again, "just right"... Crossfitters and Olympic lifters should be advised that this bar is probably non-optimal for highly dynamic or high-rep lifts. Oly lifts are best served by less aggressive knurling, a 28-28.5mm diameter, and much more whip than the OPB provides. Out of the box, the bronze bushings rotate smoothly without any binding; the sleeves do not exhibit excessive play. The corrosion-resistant stainless shaft and chromed sleeves should minimize the need for maintenance. In terms of power bars, the Stainless OPB bar is a noticeable step up over the bars I've used in commercial gyms. It is at least as good as the TPBs I've used in the past. You KNOW if you need a real power bar... and if you need a power bar, this is a great choice... and likely the BEST choice for the money. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome power bar Going from a gym with regular olympic bars (28mm & bearings), to this was noticeable (for the better). My grip suffered slightly, but I love the lower whip & its deeper knurling. I only need chalk if my hands are super sweaty. I use it for everything - deadlifts, squats, bench, OHP, rows, landmine stuff, etc etc etc. I noticed a tiny spot that seems the paint chipped on the unknurled part, but it's not a big deal. My cheap plates are also beating up the sleeves paint job a good bit because of the rough edges and excess paint, but so far so good. More than likely all the superficial damage is from wear and tear, as I didn't notice any of this stuff when I first got it, which is why I'm still giving it a 5/5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this bar for overall fitness and powerlifting. Handles anything I throw at it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my gym setup I love it. I have the bare steel version and it looks/feels great. The knurling is perfect and it basically sticks to your hands. Maintenance is pretty easy, too. I just use some oil and a nylon brush before wiping it down with a rag. Simple stuff. I highly recommend this bar, in bare steel. I can't speak for the other finishes.
