Rogue Ohio Deadlift Bar - Cerakote

Special Price $385.00

Regular Price: $385.00

* Required Options

The latest version of the Ohio Deadlift Bar introduces three new Cerakote color finishes, with your choice of a black, red, 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 three colorways—black, red, 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.

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.

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 131.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Knurling Too Aggressive Great bar in nearly all aspects. The one complaint I have with it is its knurling. It's way more aggressive than I'd like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Bar Great bar with good whip. Can tell the difference between a rogue bar and others. Knurl is rough so hook grip starts to feel more painful after 5-6 sets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rogue is just awesome. Couldn’t be more happy with my purchase! The bar looks an feels great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar even for moderate DLs I have an Ohio bar that I love, but needed something with more aggressive knurling for DLs. After stalking the Rogue site daily for weeks in search of an OHPB, I got frustrated and ordered this DL bar b/c it was the only thing in stock. Even though I will likely never DL enough to take full advantage of the bar, its been a good addition to my training arsenal. The knurling is deep and grips well without shredding the hands. I've done 3X8 sets without an issue. I should note I have the black zinc, the coating that fills the knurl the most, so bare steel may be a bit rougher on the paws. I have small hands a so I've liked the ability to hook grip the 27mm shaft. Of course, this bar is a luxury in that it really is only good for DLs, I can't imagine squatting with it at any amount of weight. It is slightly longer than the Ohio bar, but not unwieldy and when in my horizontal gun rack storage, its hardly noticeable (roughly 2" on each side). If stored vertically, those extra 4-5" might be tough for small ceilings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deadlift bar Love this bar for deadlifting. Feels great in the hands and looks good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar I should of started my garage gym way before Covid. It’s very difficult to get all the essential equipment needed to start up. After checking the site multiple times daily I finally got lucky and was able to buy this dead lift bar. Been using this bar for about a month now. Bar looks amazing and feels even better. The quality is far better than what you will find in your local gym. The knurling is great. In my opinion this should be standard on barbells. I used it for deadlifts, squats, bench and as a curl bar. I used it for other exercises because I don’t have any other bar, yet. It does feel weird, squatting and benching, because of the whip. This Monday the power bar I ordered should be in and the deadlift bar will be strictly for deadlifts. It’s a great bar. You won’t be disappointed
