Product Description

The Ohio Bar 2.0S is the first barbell to feature built-in sound dampening properties. In testing, it consistently measures 10 decibels (dB) quieter than typical bars when dropped in the same conditions. To the human ear, that’s equivalent to being half as loud as what you’d expect from your current barbell.

ROGUE OHIO BAR 2.0S

The Ohio Bar 2.0S is the first barbell to feature built-in sound dampening properties. In testing, it consistently measures 10 decibels (dB) quieter than typical bars when dropped in the same conditions. To the human ear, that’s equivalent to being half as loud as what you’d expect from your current barbell.

For nearly 100 years, dating back to the earliest adjustable-weight, rotating-sleeve bars of the 1920s, the sleeves on almost all standard barbells have been fastened to the shaft in a manner that allows for metal-to-metal contact, creating much of the noise when the bar is dropped. To counter this, Rogue developed a new, patent-pending construction method that eliminates all metal-to-metal contact between the shaft and sleeves. In addition, this advanced design incorporates components and materials often used in heavy duty military vehicles, high performance automotive, and industrial machinery, where reliability is critical. This includes top-tier proprietary polymer bushings and dampened endcaps to further decrease the noise on the drop without sacrificing the bar’s performance, strength, or durability.

In addition to its internal innovations, the Ohio Bar 2.0S is also our first barbell to feature our new proprietary sleeve finish, which transforms the surface of the steel rather than coating it, greatly increasing the long-term corrosion, impact and abrasion resistance of the black finish.

Apart from these improvements, we have kept the functional aspects of the barbell the same as our standard Cerakote Ohio Bar, including a 28.5mm, 190,000 PSI tensile strength steel shaft and a signature Ohio knurl with breaks in the knurl for powerlifting and weightlifting (there is no center knurl). The ceramic-based Cerakote shaft coating offers corrosion resistance up to 100x that of traditional black zinc, and our patented Rogue Work Hardening (RWH™) process gives the bar the highest possible F Rating of F-8R. That means it has the highest level of fatigue resistance of any of our barbells and can stand up to decades of abuse even in high volume gyms.

OUR QUIETEST BARBELL TO DATE

In our testing, the Ohio Bar 2.0S was 50% quieter than typical bars when dropped from the same height in the same conditions. The main patent-pending design features responsible for this are the new proprietary bushings, improved endcaps, and the elimination of all metal-to-metal contact between the shaft and sleeves. By integrating materials and construction methods from the worlds of performance automotive and military vehicles, we created a bar that is not only quiet, but that offers an extremely smooth rotation and solid feel.

CERAKOTE SHAFT

The bar’s shaft is finished in Black Cerakote, an advanced ceramic-based coating originally popularized in the gun industry for its remarkable durability in thin applications. Cerakote can deliver superb abrasion / wear / corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc. Additionally because of the thin application and the matte finish of the Cerakote, this finish creates the best possible grip.

3

PROPRIETARY SLEEVE FINISH

The sleeves of the Ohio Bar 2.0S are the first of any Rogue barbell to feature our new process that transforms the surface of the steel rather than coating it. The process greatly improves the sleeves’ corrosion resistance, impact resistance and abrasion resistance. Additionally, the coloring extends below the surface of the steel. Therefore, unlike sleeves treated with surface coatings, these sleeves will maintain their beautiful matte black appearance after extended use.

4

190,000 PSI STEEL

The shaft of the Ohio Bar 2.0S is made from steel manufactured in the US to our specifications (same as our original Ohio Bar). It has proven to be one of the best steel variants for a multi-purpose barbell, providing enough whip for Oly weightlifting but enough stiffness for powerlifting. Each shaft is treated with our patented Rogue Work Hardening (RWH™) process, leading to increased durability.

5

MACHINING & ASSEMBLY

Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio, with painstaking attention to detail. The knurling has been carefully refined over the years, as well, for a firm but non-abrasive grip (there is no center knurl). We assemble the Ohio Bar 2.0S in house with our new patent pending process that eliminates all metal-on-metal contact, leading to 50% less noise when dropped.

The Rogue Ohio Bar 2.0S eliminates all metal-to-metal contact between shaft and sleeves making it 50% quieter on the drop.

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.

Top Notch QUALITY!
This Ohio Bar 2.0 is SICK!!! The knurl, custom graphics, cerakote treatment, and the spin on the sleeves are done with precision and care. First off, my bar was expected to arrive approximately a month from now, only to get the AWESOME surprise today, …amazing! Thanks Rogue. I’ve been using your equipment for over a decade in, CAR, Iraq, Afghanistan, and other locations work lead me to. This is the first time I purchase for the home gym and as always, HIGHLY IMPRESSED!!! Btw, these aluminum collars are on point! No wiggle, and no cheap polymer like many found on Amazonia. Thanks once again guys and keep up the great work! I can’t wait to receive the rest of the order⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Quiet!
I bought this bar for my commercial gym. I would get complaints about the noise when members were deadlifting. A member was deadlifting with the Rogue Ohio 2.0S bar. I went over to one of my trainers across the gym and ask if they heard that. They said "hear what?"

Super quiet
I own a gym and got these for our 5/6am class to keep the noise down for our neighbors. They are super quiet as well being the same overall great quality from Rogue. These barbells with some crash pads have eliminated almost of the noise and have made us, and our neighbors, very happy.

So much quieter
When I bought this bar I was skeptical, but once I put it through some workouts I hate using other bars if I know my children on the second floor have to hear loud weights slamming. Great product can’t wait for more color variations.

Great for my Apartment Gym
Love this bar. I keep this in my apartment complex gym, our Rogue Bar makes a lot of noise even when you're trying to put it down gently. This doesn't make as much of a sound, and I can't imagine it disturbs anyone in the floors above. I tried, dropping it from overhead to see if that was a lot quieter. It wasn't. So great for cycling barbell movements(deadlifts, cleans, snatches), but I would still go with drop pads if you plan on dropping from overhead and you don't want to disturb any neighbors.

Sick
Knurl has perfect blend of stick. I think it's similar, but better than ABB Mammoth power bar knurl, which I think is just the right knurl for all types of lifting for a functional style bar. Appearance is phenomenal. Sound is super quiet. Plates fit nice and snug on the sleeves. End cap is cool. My top bar I have now, coming from a ABB, Rep, TPB, Rogue type bars.
