KEY FEATURES OF THIS OHIO BAr

1

New 190,000 PSI Steel

This steel is manufactured in the US and has proven to be one of the best steel variants for a multi-purpose barbell. Each barbell shaft is ground and polished prior to machining which allows the bar to have a very smooth finish post any black oxide or black zinc finish.

2

Machining

Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio. A great deal of pride is built into each bar as the knurling process is an art. We spent months working on the knurl we believe to be the best for the Ohio Bar. To test the knurl it is more a beer tasting process than exact measurement. There is a look and feel that go into testing every bar.

3

Fit and Finish

Each Ohio Bar finish offers a different level of oxidization protection and has a direct effect on the feel of the knurl.

Black Oxide is a mild oxidization protectant process. This type of steel treatment will still require some maintenance but will give the best knurl feel, more like a naked bar.

Zinc is a medium oxidization protectant process. This type of steel treatment requires minimal maintenance and is used on The Rogue and Bella Bars.

The Ohio Bar is also available in  Stainless Steel & an advanced ceramic-based coating called Cerakote.

4

Assembly

The Ohio Bar is assembled with bronze bushings which act as bearing surfaces between the bar sleeve and bar shaft. This is a very robust way of building a barbell. Each bar will come with an Ohio Bar card that has the initials of the Rogue team member that built the bar.

5

Performance

This bar will have normal “whip” during Olympic weightlifting and enough stiffness to hold for heavy powerlifting. The steel in this bar is proven as an excellent choice for weightlifters.

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.

Whichever barbell finish you choose, Rogue has provided some helpful tips for long term Bar Care & Maintenance.

When a bar is more than a bar
In all my years, I never gave ANY thought to the bar I used. I never cared… weight rooms, gyms, home…. A bar is a bar. With my home, I had an “economy” bar rated for 700 and then two junk straight bars that came with plate sets I acquired. Just assumed I’d toss a “cheap” bar when it broke. 700lb for my main bar seemed plenty strong Well let me tell you!! This bar is a game changer!! I love it! The knurl is so much better than the economy bar I had. No metal flaking off and I know this bar can withstand the work I put it through. Makes me want to lift more…. My wife was a doubter in spending money on a bar and she magically uses this one whoever I’m not looking! Love it…

Huge upgrade for my barbell
Upgraded my basic barbell to the ohio bar a couple of months ago. Have used the ohio bar for several months now and the quality and durability is top notch. Huge difference and well worth the upgrade!

Second bar now the favorite
Bought the Cerakote Ohio Bar so I could have a second bar for convenience. The bar arrived two days ago and now I may never use my first bar again. First thing I noticed is my plates slide on/off so much easier and don’t stick like my first bar. The knurling on the Ohio bar is perfect and along w/ the Cerakote provide a better grip than my first bar. No more sliding grip w/ sweaty palms. First bar was a previous recommendation from Garage Gym Reviews. A good mutliuse bar but definitely not the same level as the Rogue. Tempted to order another Ohio bar and sell the first bar….
