Matt Chan Bar

An American-made barbell
 custom designed by Rogue Athlete Matt Chan. As a former
 firefighter and four-time Top 10 finisher at the CrossFit Games, Matt is a man whose opinions tend to carry weight around here.
 That’s why we invited him to come to Columbus and help us
 create a custom barbell that would combine the qualities of a powerlifting bar, and Olympic weightlifting bar.


The Matt Chan Bar is manufactured from the same quality U.S.
 steel as our Ohio Bar, with both powerlifting and Olympic 
lifting knurl marks. Matt added a passive center knurl to the bar. This knurling assists
 athletes who prefer a little extra “stick” when in 
the front rack position or back squatting, but it won’t 
shred the skin like more aggressive center knurls
 might.

Matt has also increased the distance between the outer
 knurling which allows for a wider
 stance on cleans and deadlifts without the knurling scraping the 
shins.

You can order your own custom Matt Chan Bar in Black Zinc for which Rogue has provided some helpful tips for long-term 
barbell care and maintenance.

Specifications:

  • Machined and Assembled in Columbus, OH, USA
  • Lifetime Guarantee Against Bending*
  • Diameter: 28.5mm
  • Dual Knurl Marks for O-Lifts and Power Lifts
  • “Passive” Center Knurl
  • Outer Knurling slightly more aggressive for easier hold during high rep barbell work
  • Available in Murdered Out (Black Zinc with Black Zinc Sleeves)

The recommended maintenance is to use a plastic bristle brush and mild detergent to clean the knurl. Next, wipe the bar down with 3-in-1 oil. Finish by removing any excess oil with a dry towel.

*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 Chan Bar is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 61.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bar purchase I bought this bar just over a year ago and i can honnestly say that i do not regret it at all. I have been throwing everything at this bar heavy clean,deadlifts snatches and a lot of high rep workouts and it has stood up to the challenge. The other thing i like is the knurling. Some people say that its too rough but for me its perfect considering that i dont have to chalk, ever on any workout what ever it may be. The other thing i really like is the spacing of the knurling since its perfect for when i do cleans, all i have to do is just grip it and rip without having to the measurement with the thumbs for hand placement. I could go on and on about this bar but i definetly recommend this bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for taller athletes I use this bar in my home gym. The design works very well for me. I'm 6'3 and tend to use a wider stance when doing many of my lifts. The position of the knurling works very well for me and saves my shins. I use the bar for deadlifts, squats, bench etc. And I find that it performs very well for everything. This is a very high quality bar - you get what you pay for!
