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. 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 (16-7/8” vs. 16-1/4”). 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.

  • Made in Columbus, OH, USA
  • Weight 20 KG (+/- 0.1% of actual weight)

Key Features of the Rogue 20KG Ohio Power Bar

  • 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. 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 20 KG 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.

*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 111.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Bar for the Big Three I bought this bar for my garage gym. I trained for years at a serious powerlifting gym where old (80s vintage) Texas Power bars were the norm. I loved those bars. Then I moved, and the only gyms within 25 miles were the big commercial outfits. None had bars that compared to the old Buddy Capps bars I cut my teeth on, but they held plates and mostly weighed around 45lbs. Eventually, I acclimated to mediocre barbells and managed to find one or two that even had a noticeable knurl. Two years ago, I’d finally had enough of the fashion show / on the phone / selfie snapping / squat rack curling crowd and built a gym in my garage. Since then I’ve been getting along with a crummy craigslist bar, happy to just have my own sanctuary. When I decided to upgrade my barbell, I almost went straight for a Texas Power Bar. But I was really happy with my Rogue R3 rack and read good things about the Ohio Power bar, so I decided to give it a try. I figured the worst that could happen is that I’d find some reason not to like it and have to buy that Texas Bar after all. I ordered the Ohio Power Bar in bare steel (I like the thought of using a bar that will have an old school patina ten years from now). It’s an absolute beast and a work of art to boot. I was instantly reminded of the satisfying feel of the Texas Bar, but this was even better. The knurling is perfect. So much so, that my chalk bowl wonders why I don’t visit anymore (maybe we’ll get back together when it gets hot this summer). I’ve had 600lbs on this bar and if barbells could talk, I’m pretty sure it would have yawned and asked me when we were going to get to work. I’m using this bar to squat, press, bench, deadlift and do cleans. I didn’t want whip and neither does this bar. What I wanted was a beast of a bar with an aggressive knurl that could be a staple of my training for years to come. That’s exactly what I got. I could not be happier.

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!
