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.

  • Black Cerakote Shaft
  • Black Cerakote Sleeves
  • “The Ohio Power Bar: Thor Edition” cerakote’d on inside of both sleeves in white

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 195.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally Treated Myself to the Ohio PB! As a Canadian the daunting US exchange rate adds about 30-33% to any purchase so what looks like a good price $250USD is well over $300CDN. I tell you this because it takes me a long time to pull the trigger on a purchase such as this, due to my innate cheapness. That said I received my OPB yesterday and unwrapped it. Oh, oh, my. I have only trained with a generic CAP barbell that I got 16 years ago. The OPB is so many light years in quality above that bar it's not fair that they are both classified as barbells. The knurling is fine, I was worried it would be too aggressive but don't think that is the case. Just feels good, really really good. Spin is fine and that's about it. An incredibly well made barbell that will last me forever. Thanks Rogue!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bar I have ever owned There are some things for your garage gym that you should not skimp on and your barbell is one of those things. Rogue bars are fantastic. Great spin, not too much knurl. Just a really good bar. I will be getting the deadlift bar next!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First powerlifting bar I finally upgraded to my first non-generic bar and couldn't be happier. Unfortunately, when it arrived it was damaged on one side (definitely a UPS issue). Rogue's customer service was excellent and offered either financial compensation or to replace the bar. I opted to have them send me a new bar. As I said, it's awesome. 'Aggressive knurl' is a bit of an overstatement though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good This bar is great so far. Nice upgrade for me. Very happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, well balanced and great knurling I have several Rogue pieces in the gym. As for the 20kg Ohio bar, this is a rock solid bar and we've already had over 600 lbs on it with some of the stronger lifters. The knurling is great and the bar is solid and affordable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bar Great bar for bench and squats. Perfect grip and no need for chalk
Date published: 2018-07-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid sturdy good grip I got the black zinc coated and have been using it regularly for squats and bench. It’s perfect for those, don’t really need chalk because the knurling is so good. I can see maybe not using it for deadlifts however because the knurling is so deep. This bar is good for overhead presses too. Bottom line is it’s a solid purchase, they ship it carefully, it’s very well finished (I’ve done some machining on metal), quality work, coating is not coming off at all, can’t say more. Spend your money with rogue, they have good stuff.
