Rogue 28MM Olympic WL Bar

Combining a new 215K PSI steel shaft with quality needle bearings and friction-welded sleeves, this latest version of the Rogue Olympic Weightlifting Bar ranks among the best in the industry for feel, durability, and performance. Each 20KG bar is machined and assembled in Columbus, OH, and includes an exclusive Rogue knurl pattern that's precision-cut for a firm grip without the sharpness or abrasiveness of many import bars.

We currently offer the Oly WL Bar in a Bright Zinc finish. Other versions of the Olympic bar include a stainless steel version, a cerakote version, and a 15KG women’s version.

Key Features of the Rogue Olympic WL Bar

  • 1215,000 PSI Tensile Strength

    Our Men’s Oly Bar is made exclusively from high-grade steel, producing a shaft with a minimum tensile strength of 215,000 PSI. Each shaft is ground and polished prior to machining (to ensure a smooth finish), and individually tested and straightened to within 0.015” (0.38mm). The goal is to create just the right amount of “whip” or “flex” needed for competitive Olympic lifting.

  • 2Friction Welded Sleeves + Needle Bearings

    Using a process from the worlds of aviation and automotive manufacturing, the sleeves on the Rogue Olympic Weightlifting Bar are friction welded—creating a superior, forged-quality bond. This method is more precise than most joining techniques and helps prevent any changes in the integrity of the sleeve. Combined with 10 sets of top-quality needle bearings, the result is a barbell with a smooth, consistent, quieter spin.

  • 3Precision Machining

    Every Oly Bar is machined in Columbus, Ohio, on new Haas machines that are built in the USA. For the Olympic knurl marks, we experimented with several knurling patterns before choosing the full but minimally aggressive texture that top weightlifters responded to best. Rather than relying on visibility alone, each bar is then manually tested to ensure the actual “feel” is up to Rogue standards.

  • 4A New Addition to Your Rogue Arsenal

    As the leading manufacturer of American-made strength and conditioning equipment, Rogue offers a wide range of Olympic bearing bars and related gear. Along with the standard Men’s Oly WL Bar, we also offer a Stainless Steel Olympic WL Bar, the Euro 28mm Oly Bar (EU Steel and a center knurl), and the Women’s 25MM Oly Bar. You can also combine your bar with quality American-made plates, collars, and secure storage systems .

  • 5Fit and Finish

    The Oly WL Bar is currently available in a Bright Zinc finish. This bar is fitted with a machined stainless steel Rogue end cap, built with precision to finish the bar.

Rogue Olympic WL Bar is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect Let me start off by saying that I love this bar. The knurling is great, but mine was a little bit more passive outside of the olympic marks. I didn't want to deal with returning and receiving a new one, but overall a great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought one from the boneyard! Man what a deal. I bought one of these from the boneyard. Super awesome. Spins really smooth on the bearings all the same specs as the standard bar. As a bonus in my opinion the boneyard is a raw shaft. Such a great feel you dont get from coated bars. If your on a budget and want an awesome Olympic bar get this one while they have them. Honestly I can only see (on my bar) a little bit of the knurling thats slightly and I mean slightly off. The knurling feels no different than my Castro bar and except for one little spot it looks no different. I am so glad I took a chance on this bar it exceeded all my expectation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Advertised!!! Made In The USA + Rogue Quality = Perfect Bar!!! Awesome spin. I personally would put the knurling in the middle range, but I like that. I spent the extra money for the stainless steel because I workout in my garage in Northwest Ohio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer If I had known what a difference a good Olympic bar made I would have gotten one sooner. Just amazing to work with!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth, Buttery Indulgence! Took a long time and a lot of hours of internal debate to decide whether or not to invest in this bar. Only regret I have is that I took the time to even think about. The bar is amazing - no wonder it was the foundation for the Arnold Classic Elephant Bar! It is as smooth as butter. Deads have never been more enjoyable! Spins smoothly, whip is borderline other worldly - set a new PR right out the box!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unreal! Best bar I have ever owned, love the knurl and the spin is unbelievable!
