Rogue 45LB Ohio Power Bar - E-Coat

Our 45 LB Rogue Ohio Power Bar is available here with a Black E-Coat shaft finish. This electrically applied coating was first popularized in the auto industry for its reliable coverage, adhesion, and corrosion resistance, and it’s gained even wider favor for its environmental benefits, producing little to no HAPS (Hazardous Air Pollutants) or VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds).

Like all of our Ohio Power Bars, the E-Coat model is fully machined and assembled in Columbus, OH, and includes a 205,000 PSI shaft, quality bronze bushings, bright zinc sleeves, and single powerlifting knurl marks + 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.

Key Features of This Ohio Power Bar:

  • 1New E-Coat Finish

    The black electrocoat, or E-Coat shaft finish on this Ohio Power Bar is an electrically-applied paint coating noted for its excellent corrosion resistance, cost efficiency, and green benefits. It has been widely adopted by leading manufacturers for the finishing of auto parts, metal stampings, fasteners, lawn/garden & agricultural equipment, military equipment, and much more. E-Coat finishes stand up to water, sunlight, and household chemicals, and they are compliant with the environmental safety standards of the RoHS, OSHA and EPA. All E-Coat Ohio Power Bars include Bright Zinc sleeves.

  • 2205,000 PSI Tensile Strength

    The E-Coat Ohio Power Bar’s 29MM diameter steel shaft has 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.

  • 3Aggressive 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.

  • 4Add More to Your Powerlifting Arsenal

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

  • 5Lifetime Warranty

    The quality construction of the Ohio Power Bar 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

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 45LB Ohio Power Bar - E-Coat is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 376.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid addition to a garage gym Actually traded one of my ohio bars for this. The cerakote finish is probably the best looking finish in the Rogue lineup. Haven't had any issues with chipping so far but you should probably have the protective j-cups if you want to keep that from happening. The cerakote is relatively thin, but still diminishes the aggressive grip of the power bar. This is countered to a degree by the fact that the cerakote finish has a matte texture. I still think stainless is your best bet though if you want corrosion resistance with the best grip texture. Having said that, I have no issues holding onto the bar during major lifts. It's definitely more aggressive than my standard stainless ohio bar, even with the cerakote.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS BAR! I've been lifting (for strength for other sports) for fifty plus (yes 50+) years (I'm 66). This is the nicest bar I've ever lifted with. I've lifted with other variations of the OPB in commercial gyms, but I got this one in stainless because it is for my garage gym and we have high humidity in south Georgia. I love the knurling on this bar and the bar is pretty/beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar, quick shipping. Super happy I went with this bar over others. The knurling is aggressive, which I really like for all lifts including squat, bench, and deadlift. Shipping was also quick. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best barbell I’ve used I love this barbell! The knurl is fantastic! Nice aggressive knurl that really grips. I’ve used it for squats, overhead press and bench. Just an awesome all around barbell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Power Bar in the market!! Got my OPB E-Coat today and I love it. I was a bit afraid about some reviews pointing that the knurl gets a bit dull due the E-Coat but to my hands and back it feels just right. Not super aggressive but with more than enough grip and during heavy squats the bar stays on my back perfectly. Like everything Rogue, shipping was fast even during this pandemic. Of course, took me almost 3 weeks checking every 5 mins on Rogue website until it was in stock. Stock was gone in less than 10 mins, though. I may get another OPB in Red Cerakote with Chrome Sleeves when ZEUS Custom is back online!!!
