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 143.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great whip and knurling I bought this bar over a month ago. Whip - The bar has great whip when breaking from the ground, making deadlifts feel great. Knurl - The knurling is sharp but not too sharp. It is a volcano pattern, where the pointy part of the mountain is cut off. It is probably the same knurl as the ohio power bar if I had to guess. It feels very secure in your hand but isn't harsh. The thinness of the bar (27mm) makes it easier to grip and makes it whippier as well. Oxidation - I have had the bar for over a month now and have not had any oxidation in my basement. My basement is unfinished. I am sure this will be different from setting to setting. I brush and wipe the bar down with a clean towel after use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cerakote: Sweet knurl, not too whippy My roommate, wife and I have been using a black Cerakote version of this bar for over a year and love it. Many deadlifts have been pulled with bar in the mid 400lb range, 500lb soon. The paint on the sleeves has worn down since we use iron plates but that's to be expected and it's worn in a cool looking way. The Cerakote on the bar seems to be holding up well and doesn't inhibit a great grip on the bar. Great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Bar! I bought my Deadlift bar a couple of months ago and have been completely satisfied with it. It arrived quickly and meets all of my expectations, as well as represents everything Rogue claims. The knurling of the bar is nicely aggressive, but does not tear your hands up - I think it's just right. I love the color combination the Cerakote provides and it provides a nice aesthetic in my home gym, matching my color theme quite well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big lifts Best bar ever for deadlifts. Knurling is wicked and don't need chalk anymore! Just grabbing the bar builds confidence to pull anything loaded on the sleeves. Didn't believe it made a difference to have deadlift specific bar until now.
