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 98.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great addition to my gym I've had it a little while now and really like it. I found using 45# bumper plates for the 1st 2 or 3 plates you slide onto the sleeve helps get more weight on the outer most part of the bar helping it to bend more. I don't really notice the bending until I have #405 on the bar. If you're not there yet I don't think you will get much of a benefit from using this bar as opposed to say an Ohio Power Bar. The only change I would have made would be to buy the raw version to take advantage of the sharper feeling knurl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feature! I bought this bar a few weeks ago and I'm very happy with it. I love the grip on the bar and it's pretty stiff just with a minimum flex.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great DL Bar I’ve used this bar for about 2 weeks. Overall love the length and its ability to hold lots of plates. My one concern with this bar is how aggressive the knurling is and how narrow the bar is versus say the Ohio Power Bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bar! Knurling is perfect!! Had an Okie deadlift bar for years but this bar is far better! Love the red and black colors!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Deadlift Bar I ordered this in June for our home gym when we were moving back from overseas. I’d used a deadlift bar at the gym we belonged to (I believe it was an Eleiko as all the bars in the gym seemed to be but not sure). Reading some of the reviews about over aggressive knurling on this bar had me a little concerned but I figured I’d get used to it. I deadlift every 3 days cycling a heavy/light session and I love this bar. I don’t have overly calloused hands and have had zero issues with it. Having said that, I do wear sweatpants when doing sumo stance as I’m sure it would take a nice chunk out of my shins. Bar arrived with iron filings(?) that would come off on my hands but a stiff nylon brush got rid of it easily. Thank you to the rogue customer service team as I ordered this as part of a larger order and they were incredibly helpful. Also thank you to garagegymreviews and Brandon Campbell Diamond for all their super-helpful reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The right combination of knurl and whip. Recommend paying the difference for the step-up bar. Using a color on the bar makes it iconic not to be confused as a regular bar. This helps with potential liability problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Electric tools Bought it and love it, however; I had to use power tools to get it out of the packaging, too well packaged.
Date published: 2019-07-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home gym approved I bought this bar after deciding I wanted to invest in a deadlift bar for home use rather than going to a gym. I miss the gym, however, being a single father and limited time/money the gym does not fit into my life right now. The decision to invest in this bar is hands down the best money I have ever spent. Thank you Rogue Fitness and thank you to whoever/whatever crafted this brilliant bar. Thank you for helping me get back to what I love doing.
