Rogue Ohio Power Bar

Fully machined and assembled in Columbus, OH, the 29mm Rogue Ohio Power Bar features a 205,000 PSI steel shaft, 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 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

    The Ohio Power Bar’s 29mm diameter steel shaft boasts a tensile strength of 205,000 PSI, 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.

Rogue Ohio Power Bar is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 110.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Power Bar For The Money I have this bar in bare steel and absolutely love it! The knurling is the most aggressive that I have experienced and the feeling of bare steel is awesome. This bar has become my favorite bar for squats. Of all the bars that I own, this is second only to the Texas Power Bar. At $250, this is a steal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tremendous! I love this bar. So strong, great spin, grip is super aggressive. I’ve used many low quality and high end bars over the years, and rogue has definitely made a great bar. And it’s a steal! Price is great for what you get.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good AF This bar is the greatest invention on all of earth. Gains to be had instantly. I looked at the rogue tube it was shipped in and my squat went up to 405 for reps. The Ohio Power bar is the new Tren. I took it out and showed it to my goldfish (Alfred) and he turned into a great white shark (thanks rogue, I had to install a 500,000 gallon saltwater tank). Seriously though, great knurling, great finish, very stiff, competition legal, looks amazing, great price, fast shipping. I don't know what else I could ask for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing power bar. Bought this for my home gym. Amazing for deadlifts, squats, bench. For power this can't be beat, especially at the price. LOVE the knurl. If you want Oly lifts, get a different bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 20KG Stainless Steel OPB This bar is fantastic. The grip and feel of the stainless steel version rivals anything on the market, and at a much better price-point for this quality. This will be our go-to bar when hosting competitions. They really nailed it with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The. Best. Bar. As good as any ipf bar on the market at half the price. Stainless finish is perfect and looks great. Eleikio should lose sales. Well done Rogue!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bars So far I’ve bought 3 deadlift bars and 3 power bars for my gym. Everyone loves the solid and aggressive feel. I will be purchasing more in the future
