Our IWF certified Men’s 28mm Oly Weighlifting Bar is now available in a Cerakote finish, with several exclusive colorways to choose from. This unique polymer-ceramic composite coating was originally popularized in the gun industry for its durability in thin applications, and it offers up to 100x the corrosion resistance of standard black zinc.

Aside from the finish, the Cerakote Oly WL Bar is manufactured to the same general specifications as the original model, combining a 215 KSI steel shaft with quality needle bearings and friction-welded sleeves. Each 20KG bar is machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, 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 firmly believe the Rogue Olympic Weightlifting Bar ranks among the best bearing bars in the industry for feel, durability, and performance.

We also offer separate versions of the Oly WL Bar in the original Bright Zinc finish, as well as Stainless Steel. A 25mm Cerakote Women’s Oly WL Bar is available Stainless Steel. A 25mm Cerakote Women's Oly WL Bar is available here.

  • 1Cerakote Strength + Custom Colors

    This version of the 28mm Oly WL Bar is distinct for its use of Cerakote, a ceramic-based coating commonly trusted by firearm manufacturers for its remarkable durability in thin applications. This unique finish can deliver superb abrasion/wear/corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc—and it’s available to order in a range of exclusive colorways, with the Rogue logo branded on the center of the shaft. See the menu for current color combination options.

  • 2215,000 PSI Tensile Strength Steel

    Our Men’s Oly Bar is made exclusively from high-grade EU 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.

  • 3Friction 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.

  • 4Precision Machining

    Every Oly Bar is machined in Columbus, Ohio, on new Haas machines that are built in the USA. For the Olympic knurl, 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. Note: There is no center knurl on the Cerakote model.

  • 5A 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. This includes the original Rogue Olympic WL Bar, the Froning Oly WL Bar, and the elite Euro 28mm Oly Bar, which features a 215K PSI steel shaft and the addition of a center knurl. You can also fully equip your bar with quality plates, collars, and secure storage systems.

  • 6Fast Rogue Shipping

    Rogue prides itself on fast, professional shipping. If your bar is ordered by 3PM EST Monday-Friday, it will ship same day. Your bar will be packaged safely and ship fast. You can follow the progress of your order using the Rogue Shipping Tracker.

Please Note: Cerakote has an excellent resistance to corrosion, but metal-to-metal contact, particular on the sleeves, can still cause wear over time. For the best long term results, some cleaning and maintenance may be required.

*Warranty against bending does not cover any bar which has been damaged due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user. Negligent or faulty use includes abusive dropping of the bar (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. We have found that most problems with bars we replace are related to abusive use rather than manufacturing or materials issues.

Rogue Olympic WL Bar - Cerakote is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 33.
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 Awesome bar! Very happy with this purchase. Knurling is awesome and the spin is great on the bar. Looking forward to setting all types of PRs with this bar. Great product!

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!
Date published: 2017-09-18
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Comparable with Elieko and Uesaka bar I own a competition Uesaka, IWF certified Elieko and and Rogue zinc bar. Spin is as good as a Elieko and better than the Uesaka. Elieko has the best whip and tied with the Uesaka. Unfortunately, the zinc bar can't withstand the sweat of lifters and weather on the East coast. Therefore, involves frequent cleaning. My Elieko and Uesaka goes through the same abuse and does not need care except an occasional brush. THIS REVIEW ONLY APPLIES TO THE ZINC BAR
