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 272.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best power bar under $300 I was hesitant to buy this bar with the bare steel finish at first because I thought oiling it would be a mess. Honestly though, the oiling is extremely easy, and the 3in1 oil tends to stick to the bar rather than splatter everywhere when you rub it into the knurling with a nylon brush. Piece of cake. The hype about the “feel” of the bare steel is justified. It feels a little “rougher” or at least less slick than zinc or chrome, sorta like extremely fine grit sandpaper. Add that on top of the aggressive knurling and what you got is a bar that really doesn’t need chalk to grip even for heavy deadlifts. If this bar comes out of your hands, your grip is definitely the problem. I also kinda like the thought of the bar forming a patina over time as I care for it. It’s a labor of love, and the one barbell finish you have to earn instead of buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing bar for my garage gym. I purchased this bar during the cyber Monday sale and so fair I absolutely love it. This bar will last me a long time even living in the midwest with the weather change and having the bar in my garage gym. The Cerakote is stunning on this bar. I have the all black bar. Knurl is definitely aggressive but not too much it's just right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Piece of art. Knurl is aggressive. Very grippy. Perfect bar for benching and squat. If your not doing any Olympic lifts, get a power bar. I chose the stainless version instead of cerakote, no need fancy colors that can get chip and scratch. Stainless steel will always look perfect after many years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feel and knurling! I am lifting almost daily with Leoko, Zhangkong IWF Men's Competition Bar and Eleiko Weightlifting Training Bar. For powerlifting this bar is by far the best. The knurling is spot on and also the stifness. Overall quality is also very good and so far I do not have no complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied! Ive been consistently lifting weights for the past 8 years and most of my routine is done strictly with a barbell. Bench press, squats, rows, barbell curls, military peas, you get the idea. So naturally I’ve come to be pretty picky about my barbells. I’m sure others know why I’m talking about when I say not all barbells are equal. You know when you pick up a barbell and it just doesn’t have the right feel. Feels cheap, grips are off, diameter is off. That sort of thing. Those little things can make a big diffeeenc especially when your lifting heavy. With that being said this is by far the beat barbell I’ve ever used. It is what I would call perfect! Feels right. It doesn’t bend, the grip is nice and deep so it actually lets you grip it, bo chalk needed really. The spacing of the rings is perfect, diameter is perfect. And it just “feels” good. You can tell when you pick it up it’s high quality. Like I said this is the best barbell I’ve ever used and that’s coming from a guy who’s very picky so that says something. You won’t be disappointed. Thank you guys for such a great product!!
