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 63.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this new bar I bought this bar a month ago for my son's 27th birthday present. He reports that both he and his training partners love using it. They can really see the difference pulling this bar versus the bars they have been using from their gym.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bar, Bad knurling. The bar is great. The quality you expect from rogue. However, the knurling on the bar is horrible. It is WAY to aggressive. If they made this bar and used the knurling of the B&R bar, this would be an easy 5 stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Knurling mcuh worst than I expected. I have 4 rouge bars and think the knurling on the regular Ohio bar is perfect. The Ohio Deadlift bar is too aggressive causing additional calluses. I have no idea why they didn’t use the same knurling as on Ohio bar. The Cerakote finish is nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would of liked more whip I absolutely love the bar and everyone wants it that comes to lift lol. Only thing is I wish I had more whip or I need to lift heavier lol. 600lbs gives a slight whip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar! I bought this bar a month ago and it is perfect for deadlifts! The knurling on the bar is very pronounced which makes for a great grip without even using chalk! The slight bend in the bar helps create a good wedge before initial lifting up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great deadlift bar even for a beginner This was the best price I found for a deadlift bar. I’m 46 and train dead stop conventional deadlifts in the 300-400 pound range; clearly not strong. I’ve made all kinds of mistakes that led to consistently injuring my lower back; but this bar and Rogue’s reverse hyper have made my back and deadlift stronger than ever. Taking the slack out of this real deadlift bar feels very different than a regular junk bar. I’ll use this forever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best feeling barbell in your hands Bought this bar a couple weeks ago and am nothing but pleased. Knurling is aggressive and easy to hold on to with or without chalk. Great whip and bar feels tru through the lift. Power Bar is next on my list!
