Rogue Ohio Power Bar

Fully machined and assembled in Columbus, OH, the 29MM Rogue Ohio Power Bar features a 205,000 PSI steel shaft (200,000 PSI for Stainless), 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 45LB 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 16.25" 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 (200,000 for Stainless) 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 (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.

  • 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.

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 Ohio Power Bar is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 330.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommend I've had the same barbell for the better part of 15 years and never realized how bad it was. I decided somewhat on a whim that I should upgrade. The big 3 lifts are generally in all of my programs with little to no olympic lifting. I wanted center knurling. I picked up the stainless bar. First impression was that it was very well made. Simply great finish and looks the business. The knurling is perfect for me. I've had cheap bars with barely any knurling and over-aggressive knurling that is painful to hold. The OPB has a perfect balance in being grippy but not hard on the hands. I work a desk job, so my hands are not very tough. Everything from the feel of the bar on the hands, to the sound re-racking the bar, and nice spin of the bushings screams quality. I expect to have this bar for the rest of my life and not need another power bar. AND, shipping was only 2 days ground.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I am so super glad I got this bar after researching every bar available from other companies. Everything about it, every feature, craftsmanship, machining, knurling, cerakote, bushings, absolutely all perfection. You cant go wrong with a Rouge bar. Unless you use bad form. Lol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The work horse! I needed a main power bar for my garage gym and I couldn't stay away from the OPB. Absolute beast of a bar, the 29mm is a comfortable grip, no whip at all for heavier squats, knurling is just enough bite without being over the top and has an amazing look in the black Cerakote finish! I chose the Cerakote finish because it just simply looks better and lasts longer to a pretty drastic humidity differential in my ill insulated garage gym. Overall perfect bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bar I needed a bar with center knurling for squats. At least this one won't bend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Quality Craftsmanship. This bar is a work of art. It's the first quality bar I've purchased other than typical cheap kit bars, love the knurling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome feel Went from a cheap sporting goods store bar to this one. Love it. Made lifting much more enjoyable, the bearings feels great, the grip is amazing, couldnt say anything bad about it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar Had the bar for about a month. It's the best power bar I have used. Knurling is perfect, rough and grippy, without being sharp like a Texas power bar. I use it for everything except power cleans. Cleans would not feel good with that center knurl. If there is one improvement I would like to see it would be to make the center knurling less aggressive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bars This is my 2nd bar I have in my home arsenal from Rogue. Along with the Ohio Power Bar I recently recieved, I also have an Ohio Deadlift Bar. The superior build quality, and the feel of the raw steel with just the right amount of knurling is second to none. I am very satisfied with my my recent purchases and I highly recommend them.
