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

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 266.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar I have worked with Rogue Ohio Power bars for a while and love them. They are excellently built and are nearly indestructible!!! An excellent choice for the money for any gym!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bar, but... This is a phenomenal bar, but the cerakote finish on the sleeves is constantly getting scratched when I put plates on it. Not a big deal, I should have known this would happen, but it takes away from the clean finish that the cerakote lends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer I honestly never knew the difference between bars and how much of a difference it makes to use the right type of bar for the right purpose. Until I purchased this power bar I had been benching with the Rogue Olympic Bar and had been getting pretty frustrated with the results. After doing research I decided to give this bar a chance and man, it made a huge difference! It felt so much more stable and I felt like I was able to use so much more effort on the actual lift instead of stabilizing the bar. It is seriously the best purchase I have made in a long time! Very pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect grippy knurling, strong bar Perfect grippy knurling (my hands adjusted after a few workouts), very strong. Great spin action for powerlifting (not too much, not too little). I have the standard Ohio bar as well but I like this one much better because of the knurling and slightly thicker bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rogue Ohio power bar 45lb. If your looking to get a bar for any purpose I would spend the money and buy this it will last forever. Rogue is the best place to buy your bars cuz they have quality and great customer service. Buy cheap buy twice spend money only once.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy I have used the Ohio Power Bar before. It's a great piece of kit. I was fortunate enough to grab a Boneyard bar for my garage gym. My advice is buy one. Be it a factory first or a Boneyard Bar you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Great! This is a great bar, regardless of price. But the price is right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will toughen mind, body & hands. I like the rough knurling and powerlifting center knurl marks- after 5 uses, can already feel the calluses developing. Also, made in the USA!
