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 296.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Squats... not great for Bench or DL's... I've used this Black + Zinc Ohio Power Bar about 10 times now, and it's great for Squats - no whip at all so you can really transfer power into the bar out of the hole, and re-racking it is easier because it doesn't bend much when you get it out of the rack, even with heavy weights (500+). Only downside for squats - the center knurling rips your trap skin. Small price to pay for knowing it isn't going anywhere. Maybe wrap it in tape or something (I didn't, so can't say). For deadlifts, the thicker bar is tough to hold on to! That plus no whip makes it a beast to get it going off the floor. Maybe good training to make it HARDER, but definitely not good for handling bigger weights. It's alright for bench, but zero whip and thick, sharp bar give it all the same downsides for bench as for DL's, it just doesn't matter as much for bench. I know it's a powerlifting bar, so nobody should be doing cleans or snatches, but with the skin-ripping center knurling I wouldn't recommend OH press or anything else where this thing might hit your face! I only say that because so many review sites and stuff call this "the best all around bar". It's NOT a great "all around" bar - it's a Power Bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you want quality and value, just buy this If you are building a home gym, and you're looking for the best general barbell for the money, really, just buy this barbell. Don't waste your money on the ~$100 junk on Amazon. You'll get injured, you'll regret it, and you'll come back to look at these anyway. Spend the money on this quality piece of equipment. You will be glad you did. I had a shoulder injury caused by an imbalance in the cheap Amazon bar I bought when I first put my gym together. It was balanced wrong, and actually heavier on one side. Within a week of receiving the OPB, my shoulder feels excellent, everything feels balanced and strong, the way it should. Just get it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Bar - Only one thing... The bar is solid, our members love it. Only thing is that I wished it came with a brush specific to that material so its completed with maintenance and care.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bar! Just received my 45lb bar in bare steel. I deliberated for weeks in which power bar to get, between the Texas power bar, Vulcan, and some other companies.. I’m not disappointed that I chose the standard by which they’re all compared! It was well packaged and shipped / received faster than I expected. Compared to my Ohio 1.2 bar, the knurling is aggressive, sticks great, but doesn’t hurt; the sleeves spin about the same; and the fit/finish are the high quality I expect from Rogue. Initial impressions from first workout - stiff for squats/ no bounce out of the hole; the 29mm feels great during bench press; and the knurl/ grip was comfortable and like glue for deadlifts. Hands are very mildly raw after first workout. I’m very happy with this bar! My gym is in the basement, and I plan to clean chalk/ wipe the bar with oil after each workout, so I’m not worried about rust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great barbell Pricey, but you get what you pay for. You can feel the quality of the craftsmanship as soon as you wrap your hands around the bar. Great knurling, comfortable and overall a solid barbell. I am very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Rogue power bar must be one of the best bars in the world, highly recommend!
