What Sets the Echo Bar Apart:

  • 1Budget Price, Same Quality

    The Echo Bar—just like our flagship 28.5MM Ohio Bar—is constructed from 190,000 PSI tensile strength steel, with quality bronze bushings that act as bearing surfaces between the bar sleeve and shaft. A bright zinc finish across the entirety of the bar finishes the look.

  • 2Updated Snap Ring Construction

    Brand new for Version 2.0 of the Echo Bar is a fully upgraded snap-ring construction, battle-tested to maintain optimal stability throughout any type of high-intensity Olympic movement. This, again, is the exact same construction used in the Rogue Ohio Bar. We have also included new Echo exclusive endcaps for this re-design, a feature not found with the original model.

  • 3Machining - Knurl

    The Echo Bar includes single, IWF standard Olympic knurl marks (there are no powerlifting marks and no center knurl) in an consistent, non-abrasive pattern. Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio, and treated with artistic precision.

  • 4Part of the Rogue Echo Series

    Rogue manufactures a wide range of other quality, economically priced equipment under the Echo Series, including our Echo Power Racks, Echo Squat Stands, Echo LB Bumper Plates, and more.

  • 5Performance

    Despite its friendly price tag, the Echo Bar is up to the demands of high-performance, competitive Oly lifting. The 20KG bar will produce a consistent spin and “whip” during any traditional Olympic movement, and the durability of its construction is backed by a one-year warranty.*

  • 6Fast Rogue Shipping

    Orders placed by 3PM ship the same day. The Rogue Shipping System allows you to track your order from the time you place it to the time it hits your door. Order today, track today.

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.

*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 Echo Bar 2.0 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 148.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grateful During the rough times of the pandemic, Rogue didn't price gouge. They had a good system in place, which I was lucky to get this bar. Other competitors showed their true colors. Rogue pays their employees a fair wage as well. I wasn't planning on a home gym, but I'm well on my way. And, I'm going Rogue all the way. Respect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comparing to my Ohio Bar Quick and short to the point. Started my home gym because of the pandemic. Wanted/need a bar I knew was going to last so I bought the Rogue Ohio-Black Zinc (I do have a review on it "Honest Review During Pandemic). My girlfriend works out and so do my other 2 cousins. Figured we needed another bar so I bought the Echo bar. A sold bar for $210-240 depending on shipping to your home are you kidding me?! This bar is amazing. Single knurl mark (olympic) and a little less aggressive knurling than the Ohio Bar nothing major. None of that bothers us. We understand where our hands should go for our deadlifts, bench and squat. I mainly do the olympic lifts not my cousins so I know where my hands should go for those. Knurling still fine enough where you're able to have a solid connection with the bar. You can't beat the quality for the price. 1 year warranty but with a name like Rogue you know it's going to last longer. One last thing, It does get dirty fast so don't expect a nice silver bar after some time. You will get some dark grey spots where you have your hands but that just means you are using the bar and not having it sit there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best All-Around Bar for Home Use I bought the Echo Bar to prepare to the incoming pandemic and it was excellent. It fulfills both power-lifting and weightlifting needs. I would recommend this bar for home gyms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable quality bar for home gym I've had this bar for a couple of months now. At the time when I was building my garage gym, I was looking for a bar with good spin and knurling that wasn't too coarse as I mainly do olympic lifts. For me, this bar fulfilled that criteria at an affordable price. Just an observation: It is now starting to develop some minor patina around parts of the shaft where I usually grip, but that was expected, especially after frequent usage. If you're the kind of person who likes to keep their equipment (such as the barbell in this case) as close to "perfect" condition as much as possible, just follow Rogue's proper barbell maintenance video. One more thing I'd like to add about the Echo Bar 2.0 is that it has not developed any corrosion while being left in my garage nor has it developed performance changes/issues after dropping it loaded from overhead numerous times. As an olympic lifter in a garage gym, this thing does the job and can take a beating. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar The quality of the bar is great.. it’s just missing one thing.. weights! So until then it’s gonna be light weight with lots of reps.
