Rogue Ohio Power Bar

Fully machined and assembled in Columbus, OH, the 29mm Rogue Ohio Power Bar features a 205,000 PSI steel shaft, 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 45 LB 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 16-7/8" 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 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

    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.

  • 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.

Rogue Ohio Power Bar is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 105.
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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bars So far I’ve bought 3 deadlift bars and 3 power bars for my gym. Everyone loves the solid and aggressive feel. I will be purchasing more in the future

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy bar I am pleased with the bar. I like the black oxide look. I will say the knurling seems pretty aggressive

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!! Got this in today just in time for "International Chest-day" in my garage gym. I was nervous at first when I saw the packaging. It looked like King Kong used it as a Pogo stick as it was visibly bent without rolling it on the ground. So I tore into the package and was relieved that the bar was fine, but looking at the package you could see the foot prints as if someone was standing on the bar in transit. The Power Bar took it I suppose...The workout was great, the knurling was aggressive but not overly so. The finish was top notch actually make me think that I should have saved the money on the my SS Ohio Bar, and went with Black Zinc bar instead. I'll use the OPB for the big 3 lifts, and the regular OB for the Oly stuff. If your on the fence, go ahead and grab one you won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every Gym Needs One Of These I bought this bar for my garage gym. After using no name commercial bars for years, the difference is night and day. I use this bar for the big 3 lifts. The knurling takes some getting used to but it is perfect. I would have it no other way. I have yet to use chalk with this bar. if you have a bare steel OPB listen up: THE BAR WILL RUST IF YOU DON'T TAKE CARE OF IT! I see this complaint a lot on forums. Take care of it by wiping it down with oil (I prefer CLP).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bar. A great bar, the best bar! Arrived a few days ago and I’m already astonished at how much better this is than my old beater bar I picked up a my old gym’s fire sale. It’s amazingly taut, and I love that no matter where I put it on my back, it does not move. The grip is aggressive but you’ll never worry about losing it on a heavy deadlift, etc. very versatile—the sleeves spin well enough for power cleans. The bare steel requires maintenance, but you can’t beat the feel. I look forward to working with this bar for many years to come.
