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 151.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and well made. Night and day difference compared to my old bar that came with my 210lb weight set. This bar just oozes quality. Just one little problem (My fault) I got the bare steel, and living in Houston, I wish I would have gotten the SS version. It gets really humid here and my bar got covered in little rust spots, especially the sleeves. I cleaned it as best as I could and I now store the bar inside, which is a bit of an inconvenience, not being able to keep it in my garage gym. If you live in a humid city the bar must be stored in a climate controlled space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First "real" bar I've always used cheap beater bars from CL and never thought anything of it. Went ahead and pulled the trigger on this one when I bought my R4 after reading tons of great reviews. You will not be disappointed with this one! The knurling is awesome for deadlifts/rows/etc. I've already got the TB-1 trap bar on it's way and will definitely be using Rogue for all my future needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the bar Love the bar, it's your typical power bar. The Knurling is aggresive, it could stand to be a little more aggressive. It's relatively stiff, the most I've squatted with this far on this bar is 620 and there was minimal bend and zero whip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bar! This bar has far surpassed my expectations and will likely be the only bar I'll ever need! Reading some other reviews I was slightly worried that the knurling might be too aggressive, but honestly it's perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbeatable This is the best overall bar for powerlifting I have ever used. Bar is comfortable and secure in the hands and on the back. I had high expectations, and this bar surpassed them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't be afraid of the knurling! Best barbell I have ever put my hands on. Because so many people have commented on the "aggressive" knurling I was a little anxious to see what it would be like (rip up my hands on higher reps sets etc), however, after using the bar on high-ish rep sets on all 3 power lifts my worries were completely unfounded. I was previously using a generic gym bar with almost non-existent knurling and found the transition to this bar to be very pleasant. The knurling is perfectly tacky, you will not be slipping around on this bar.
