Rogue 20KG Ohio Power Bar

The Rogue 20KG Ohio Power Bar is fully machined and assembled in Columbus, OH, using 205K PSI tensile strength steel (200K PSI for Stainless). Approved for competition by the International Powerlifting Federation, this 29MM diameter bar includes single powerlifting knurl marks and a center knurl, with the same deep, coarse (but not overly sharp) knurl pattern as our 45LB Ohio Power Bar. The 20KG bar does have a greater loadable sleeve length than the 45LB bar (16.875” vs. 16.25”). This is a result of the slightly smaller width of the collars.

One of the key factors that sets the 20KG Ohio Power Bar apart from other powerlifting barbells in the industry is its friction welded sleeves. A technique borrowed from the worlds of aviation and automotive manufacturing, the friction welding process creates a precision, forged-quality bond, resulting in superior strength and fatigue resistance, as well as a finer grain structure on the welded joint.

The 20KG Rogue Ohio Power Bar includes bronze bushings, a snap ring design, and two finish options: Black Zinc shaft with Bright Zinc sleeves or Stainless Steel shaft with Chrome sleeves.

Specifications:

  • Made in Columbus, OH, USA
  • Weight 20KG (+/- 0.1% of actual weight)
  • 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 PSI for Stainless) for greater rigidity and reduced whip/flex
  • Bronze Bushings and Snap Ring Design for smooth spin
  • Weight: 20KG
  • Friction Welded Sleeves
  • Finish Options: Black Zinc Shaft w/ Bright Zinc Sleeves or Stainless Shaft w/ Chrome Sleeves
  • Lifetime Warranty against bending*
  • IPF Approved

Key Features of the Rogue 20KG Ohio Power Bar

  • 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. IPF approved for competition.

  • 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.

  • 3Friction Welded Sleeves

    A technique borrowed from the worlds of aviation and automotive manufacturing, the friction welding process creates a precision, forged-quality bond, resulting in superior strength and fatigue resistance, as well as a finer grain structure on the welded joint.

  • 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.

  • 5Two Finish Options

    The 20KG version of the Ohio Power Bar is available in your choice of two quality finishes. The Zinc option (black shaft, bright sleeves) provides excellent corrosion resistance, while the new Stainless Steel variation (with Chrome sleeves) creates the look and natural feel of bare steel with less upkeep required.

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.

*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 20KG Ohio Power Bar is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 363.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar I've been using the Black Zinc 45# bar for a couple years now. The knurl is still awesome and the collars are still smooth. My only gripe is the black zinc has significant wear. If I had to do it again I would get a Cerakote or Stainless/Stainless. Overall no "ragrets".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ohio Power Bar Extremely happy with it, no whip at all as described. Knurled is fantastic. Its aggressive, yes, but not so aggressive to rip the skin off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be The Mountain This bar has amazing grip and the center knurl is a must for me! The smaller lip on the sleeves allows for more weight on the bar. That combined with the rogue echo bumpers gives room to spare even with 495 on the bar!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent. Lives up to Rogue reputation I replaced a pretty good bar with this one, based on a recommendation from my son. This one turns out to be great. Little to no flex, and the knurling makes a demonstrable difference for lifts where grip is key. Packaging was also very good. The tube was visibly banged up in transit. But the bar didn’t have a scratch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Powerlifting Bar at a great price! Wanted a great bar for my Powerlifting gym and didn't want to spend a ton. This bar was perfect for all my powerlifting members. They love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good bar The bars at the gym were subpar so I purchased this one since it was IPF approved. Despite being a bigger circumference it was still easier to hang on to deadlifting

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful AF Love at first sight. Cerakote is the way to go. My favorite gym piece by far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough bar I own 5 of these along with a 45 lb one. These hold up very well and are super tough. For the price, it's really hard to beat.
