Rogue Ohio Deadlift Bar - Cerakote

Special Price $385.00

Regular Price: $385.00

* Required Options

The latest version of the Ohio Deadlift Bar introduces four new Cerakote color finishes, with your choice of a black, red, blue, or OD green shaft. All options also include the Rogue logo on the center of the shaft and black Cerakote sleeves.

Like the original ODB, the Cerakote model is machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, and precision-engineered for the needs of the competitive deadlifter. The bar’s 190,000 PSI steel shaft is designed with a comparatively thin diameter (27MM) and longer overall length (90.50" – just within most powerlifting federation standards). This combination creates a power bar that is both easier to grip and better equipped for producing maximum whip/flex when pulling. For many powerlifters, that greater flex means being able to pull from a higher point before the plates break off the floor, potentially increasing the amount of weight that can be lifted in the process.

The Ohio Deadlift Bar’s sleeves feature a quality snap ring construction—far superior to the cheaply produced bolt-and-pin style sleeves of some other brands. The powerlifting knurl marks on this bar are a bit deeper / more aggressive than our Ohio Power Bar, but machined in the same pattern. There is no center knurl.

What Sets the Cerakote Ohio Deadlift Bar Apart:

  • 1New Cerakote Color Finishes

    The new Ohio Deadlift Bar is finished using a polymer-ceramic composite coating called Cerakote, which has been popular for years in the gun industry for its remarkable durability in thin applications. This advanced finish can deliver superb abrasion/wear/corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc—while also enabling much greater versatility in color choices and design. The Cerakote Deadlift Bar comes in four colorways—black, red, blue, and OD green—each paired with black sleeves and Rogue branding on the center of the shaft.

  • 2190,000 PSI Steel Shaft - Specialized for Deadlifts

    This steel used for the Ohio Deadlift Bar is manufactured in the US and has proven to be one of the best steel variants for a competition power bar. Each barbell shaft is ground and polished prior to machining, enabling a consistent smooth surface. With this design, we also created a shaft with a thinner diameter (190,000 PSI) and longer length (90.50"), optimizing the bar’s flex/whip for high-performance deadlifts.

  • 3Machining & Assembly

    Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio, with painstaking attention to detail. A snap ring construction and quality bronze bushings ensure a smooth, consistent performance. The powerlifting knurl marks are a bit deeper / more aggressive than our Ohio Power Bar, but machined in the same pattern. There is no center knurl.

Please Note: Cerakote has an excellent resistance to corrosion, but metal-to-metal contact, particular on the sleeves, can still cause wear over time. For the best long term results, some cleaning and maintenance may be required.

*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 Ohio Deadlift Bar - Cerakote is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best deadlift bar out there! This bar exceeded all of our gym expectations. Love the grip and the whip! First of many orders for rogue equipment. Absolutely love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s a Great deadlifting bar It’s a really good bar if you are a real deadlifter ! It’s sad you have to buy your own stuff to be able to train to get to the next level

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beauty Treated myself to the matte black cerakote version. It's a looker. In terms of performance, from reading the reviews, I was a bit worried about the knurling being too aggressive. While it's significantly more aggressive than a standard Ohio bar, it's not excessive. One just needs to be smart and use proper skin management. On bar whip, I think one's experience will depend on the user's experience or lack thereof with a deadlift bar and, of course, the deadlift movement in general. There is virtually no difference between the OH bars up into the high 300s but around the low 400 mark, one can start to feel the subtle differences. I would not say one is "better" or "easier" than the other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Exactly what I was looking for to ramp up my powerlifting training. The knurl is great, has a good whip and so far everyone who has maxed out on this bar has gotten a PR. Huge difference between normal Olympic bar and Deadlift bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for deadlift Like everything I have from Rogue, this is top notch. I haven't ever deadlifted with a dedicated bar before (have the 2.0, which is also great) and the added whip of this bar is noticeable and positive. It makes the on\off moments much smoother. I'd buy this again any day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just PRd I love the bare steel version. Just oil it once in a while. I'm not a grooved sleeve fan, but the way they did it on this bar is stellar and heavy duty. I just PRd with new hook grip technique at 435. Not a big deal to most, but it is a good "dad with 5 kids PR".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to my gym. I finally broke down and bought the Power Bar and the Deadlift Bar. Never thought it would’ve made as big of a difference as it has. Always thought a bar was a bar but I was very wrong. The aggressive knurling and the smaller diameter makes a huge difference for me on heavy lifts. The cerakote on the Power bar has proven to hold up better than I expected and the deep knurling really helps with my bench. These two bars now makes three pieces of gear I’ve purchased from Rogue and I’m impressed with everything. Great quality!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don’t listen to babies whining about knurling It’s a deadlift bar, the knurling is going to be far more aggressive than a bar you put on and over your neck. Did the people leaving bad reviews because the knurling hurt their wittle fingers not read about the product they were buying? I prefer this to the Texas deadlift bar, overall a great bar perfectly built for deadlifting.
