Rogue Echo Bar 2.0

Machined and assembled at our Columbus manufacturing facility, the newly redesigned Rogue Echo Bar 2.0 is an economically priced 28.5mm bushing bar equipped with many of the same features as our flagship Rogue Ohio Bar.

Starting with a 190,000 PSI tensile strength steel shaft and bright zinc finish, the Echo Bar also now includes an upgraded snap ring sleeve construction and exclusive Echo branded endcaps. There are single IWF standard Olympic knurl marks (no center knurl or powerlifting marks) and 16.4” of loadable sleeve length.

All orders of the Echo Bar also come with a 1-year warranty.*

*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.

    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.*

Rogue Echo Bar 2.0 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Bar I bought this bar to use as a general weightlifting bar for training. The shipping and packaging was outstanding and the bar looked even better in person than I was expecting. I have been using the bar for a bit and the spin is perfect and the knurling is exactly what is needed for a general purpose bar. I had originally planned on using this bar for a bit and then upgrading to a nicer more expensive model but this bar has exceeded my expectations to the point that I am not in a rush to go out and get a higher end model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding value! Love this bar I bought my Echo bar during winter 2017. It was the first purchase, along with bumpers, for my garage gym. I've used Olympic bars for 25 years and this bar is far and away the best of its kind I have ever used (in addition to the Ohio bar). The knurl will thicken up your callouses if you don't already have them, but it spins like a dream today, just as it did the day I opened the box. I have recommended it to friends and they are equally satisfied. Rogue makes the best equipment available and there is no better value out there!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For the money good to go Bought this for o lifting as I haven't purchased for that type of lifting in the past. In retrospect I should have gone for the more expensive legit Olympic bar but that aside the quality is awesome, the bar is very strong, and I enjoy lifting with it. Knurling is strong so get ready for some ripped palms but overall this bar is great for the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Barbell This is my first barbell I bought it about 6 months ago. I have to say it has been good to me. I beat the heck out of this barbell and it is still straight and still spinning fine. I am a power lifter and i know that isn't what this bar is designed for but I was on a budget. It regularly has well over 500 pounds on it. I have droped it with that much weight and it is still fine. I do plan on upgrading to an ohio power bar soon though. All and all great first budget bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Barbell for the Price! I was in need of a quality Olympic bar for my home gym. When I say quality, I mean something that performs well, that I know I can trust with 600 lbs. or more. Just about every barbell that met these requirements were way out of my price range. Starting at around $300.00. My online research led me to the Rogue Echo bar. Based on the available information I could find, the Echo bar seemed to offer the same quality as a lot of the more pricey, bread & butter barbells on the market, but for $100.00 or more less in price. I noticed that Rogue does offer a 1 year warranty on their barbells, so I figure for $195.00 I couldn't go wrong. I received the Echo bar just 3 days after placing my order. That was just with the standard shipping option, so I was impressed with that. The bar appeared to be in exceptional condition when I removed it from the packaging. I looked over the components and it seemed to be a very good quality bar just as the info I read online suggested. I decided to document my first time experience with this barbell on video, so that other potential customers who are in the same boat that I'm in could see for themselves how this barbell performed. I decided to test the durability of this barbell by pulling some dead-lifts. I pulled a single with 405 lbs, then 495 lbs, followed by a final single with 550 lbs. The bar rolls very smoothly on the floor, if you're one of those lifters who rolls the bar prior to the lift-off. The bar traveled smoothly upward on each lift. 550 went up a bit more slowly, but that was because of the weight, not the bar. The knurl on the bar was perfect. It didn't butcher my palms the way that some other power-lifting bars have that I've tried. It was just enough of a knurl for my hands to securely lock on to without any fear of the bar rolling, or sliding out of my grip. The bar had a moderate level of whip to it, which I liked. Even at just 405. The barbells I'm used to don't even begin to flex until you get well over 500 lbs. I recall reading a review from some other individual who suggested that they wouldn't attempt going over 300 lbs on this bar. That's nonsense. This bar could easily handle well over 600 lbs. I believe that this bar could break me before I could break it, lol. I would say that the Echo Bar is absolutely perfect for anyone looking for a general lifting bar that can accommodate all bodybuilding exercises, cross-fit, and power-lifting (within reason). For $190.00, I just can't see how this bar could ever disappoint anyone! I like this bar so well that my experience with it may have opened up the gateway to me purchasing one of Rogue's fancier barbells in the future when my budget will allow it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from End Caps! I have two echo bars and they work like a charm, I recommend everyone have at least one. Cheap but of course doesn't lack quality, durable as heck. The one and only complaint I have is it doesn't come with end caps, personally feel it makes it look a little cheap plus I love the rogue logo on everyone BUT will not take away anything, just wish they came out with the end caps from the start lol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I got this bar for Christmas and have used it 4 times a week, every week since. It's awesome. I went from a standard 'power' bar from Amazon to this and the difference is night and day. Having used the 2.0, this feels the same and saved me $60. I love it, and don't think you can go wrong getting it.
