Rogue Ohio Power Bar

Fully machined and assembled in Columbus, OH, the 29mm Rogue Ohio Power Bar features a 205,000 PSI steel shaft (200,000 PSI for Stainless), single powerlifting knurl marks, and center knurling. The bar’s knurl pattern is deep and coarse without being sharp or abrasive, and the 29mm shaft diameter and high tensile strength result in little to no flex or whip. This makes the Ohio Power Bar a perfectly honed workhorse for the bench, squat, and deadlift.

The 45 LB Ohio Power Bar includes bronze bushings, a snap ring design, and 16.25” of loadable sleeve length.

When ordering, you can select from three finish options:

  • Black Zinc shaft with Bright Zinc sleeves
  • Stainless Steel shaft with Chrome sleeves
  • Bare Steel

Rogue also manufactures a 20KG Ohio Power Bar, with friction-welded sleeves and 16-7/8" loadable sleeve space.

Specifications:

  • Made in Columbus, OH, USA
  • More aggressive knurling for powerlifting
  • Center knurl for added “stick” to the back during squats
  • 29mm Diameter and 205,000 PSI tensile strength (200,000 for Stainless) for greater rigidity and reduced whip
  • Bronze Bushings and Snap Ring Design for smooth spin
  • Weight: 45lb
  • Finish Options: Black Zinc Shaft / Bright Zinc Sleeves, Stainless Shaft / Chrome Sleeves, or Bare Steel
  • Lifetime Warranty against bending*
  • 1205,000 PSI Steel (200,000 PSI For Stainless)

    The Ohio Power Bar’s 29mm diameter steel shaft boasts a tensile strength of 205,000 PSI (200,000 PSI for Stainless), delivering superior rigidity and virtually zero whip/flex. Machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, the bar also features a snap-ring design and quality bronze bushings for a smooth, consistent feel.

  • 2Aggressive Knurl

    The bar includes single powerlifting marks and a center knurl, each featuring a deep, coarse pattern that produces a reliable grip / stick without being sharp or abrasive. Perfecting this knurl pattern is both a science and an art. Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus on new Haas machines (built in the USA) and fine-tuned and personally tested by the Rogue team.

  • 3Three Finish Options

    Depending on the look and feel you prefer, there is a version of the Ohio Power Bar right in your wheelhouse. The Zinc option (black shaft, bright sleeves) provides excellent corrosion resistance, the Bare Steel creates a classic look and natural feel, and the new Stainless Steel variation (with Chrome sleeves) strikes a balance between the two.

  • 4Use It With These Other Rogue Products

    Ohio Power Bar owners can use this barbell in conjunction with a broad range of other top caliber Rogue powerlifting products, from the Westside Bench and R-3 Power Rack to deadlift bar jacks, Wagon Wheel plates, and Calibrated Steel Plates.

  • 5Lifetime Warranty

    The Ohio Power Bar’s quality construction is backed by Rogue’s Lifetime Warranty against bending. This is a barbell equipped for high intensity, everyday use. Please Note: The warranty does not cover damage due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user, 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.

  • 6Fast Rogue Shipping

    Orders placed by 3PM ship the same day. The Rogue Shipping System allows you to track your order from the time you place it to the time it hits your door. Order today, track today.

Please Note: Like any fine piece of machined steel, a bare steel barbell will require some upkeep. Occasionally brushing the bar down with 3-in-1 oil or WD-40 will create a beautiful patina look. This is how bars were made for decades and it really does produce an unmatched feel.

F Scale™
The F Scale™ is a durability scale for barbells based on functional testing at stresses similar to what barbells experience when being dropped from overhead. Bars that have been treated with Rogue Work Hardening (RWH™) are designated by having an R in their F Rating™. For more information on F Scale™ click here.

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.

Rogue Ohio Power Bar is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 210.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally Treated Myself to the Ohio PB! As a Canadian the daunting US exchange rate adds about 30-33% to any purchase so what looks like a good price $250USD is well over $300CDN. I tell you this because it takes me a long time to pull the trigger on a purchase such as this, due to my innate cheapness. That said I received my OPB yesterday and unwrapped it. Oh, oh, my. I have only trained with a generic CAP barbell that I got 16 years ago. The OPB is so many light years in quality above that bar it's not fair that they are both classified as barbells. The knurling is fine, I was worried it would be too aggressive but don't think that is the case. Just feels good, really really good. Spin is fine and that's about it. An incredibly well made barbell that will last me forever. Thanks Rogue!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bar I have ever owned There are some things for your garage gym that you should not skimp on and your barbell is one of those things. Rogue bars are fantastic. Great spin, not too much knurl. Just a really good bar. I will be getting the deadlift bar next!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First powerlifting bar I finally upgraded to my first non-generic bar and couldn't be happier. Unfortunately, when it arrived it was damaged on one side (definitely a UPS issue). Rogue's customer service was excellent and offered either financial compensation or to replace the bar. I opted to have them send me a new bar. As I said, it's awesome. 'Aggressive knurl' is a bit of an overstatement though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, well balanced and great knurling I have several Rogue pieces in the gym. As for the 20kg Ohio bar, this is a rock solid bar and we've already had over 600 lbs on it with some of the stronger lifters. The knurling is great and the bar is solid and affordable.
