Rogue 28MM Olympic Weightlifting Bar

This version of the Rogue Olympic Weightlifting Bar has no center knurl, but is otherwise manufactured to the same specs as our IWF Approved Oly WL Bar, with a 215K PSI steel shaft, quality needle bearings, and friction-welded sleeves. Since its introduction, this bar has ranked 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 Weightlifting Bar in a Bright Zinc finish. Other variations on this bearing bar include:

Additional Specifications:

  • Made in the USA with US and EU Steel
  • 28MM Men’s Olympic Bearing Bar (International Weightlifting Federation standards)
  • 215K PSI tensile strength steel shaft
  • Friction Welded Sleeves, 16.25” loadable sleeve length
  • 5 Needle Bearings per sleeve
  • Olympic Knurl Marks (no center knurl) in non-aggressive pattern
  • Stainless Steel Blue Endcaps with Rogue branding

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.

Key Features of the Rogue Olympic Weightlifitng Bar:

  • 1215,000 PSI Tensile Strength

    Our Men’s Olympic Weightlifting 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 strength and conditioning equipment, Rogue offers a wide range of Olympic bearing bars and related gear. Along with the standard Men’s Olympic Weightlifting 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 plates, collars, and secure storage systems .

  • 5Fit and Finish

    The Olympic Weightlifting 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.

  • 6Fast Rogue Shipping

    We pride ourselves on fast, professional shipping, often with same-day turnaround times. Your bar will be packaged safely and efficiently, and you’ll be able to follow the progress of your order from our factory floor to your door using the online Rogue Shipping Tracker.

Rogue Olympic Weightlifting Bar - Bright Zinc is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My hands appreciate this bar..... I just bought this bar, I’ve been using an older bearing bar, and my hands literally have been taking much less damage this week. Great whip, great feel, has the same feel as some of my IWF cert bars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Barbells are not all alike I debated buying this for my home gym based on cost, but I finally settled on having two barbells, one for front squats, Olympic lifts, and metabolic routines, and another for more standard powerlifts (I ended up with the B&R bar for these). As I am making an investment for hopefully years to come, I decided this cerakote bar was worth the price, trusting that Rogue's barbells would be as good as advertised. They are. This bar spins beautifully, provides great feedback and rattle on Olympic lifts when making proper body contact on the clean and snatch, cleans up easily with 3-in-1 oil should you decide to use chalk, although I suggest not using chalk with this bar. The knurling is absolutely perfect, does not chew up my hands yet provides fantastic grip, and no center knurl makes for comfortable cleans and front squats. I love the black and chrome pairing in terms of aesthetics, too. With Rogue's longevity calculator, this bar should last me a lifetime based on my usage, which is roughly 3x per week, including drops with plates that are 25-lb thickness and above. It's worth the investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality I love this barbell. The finish is so much better than zinc and is also a little more passive than the stainless model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Oly Bar This bar has great whip and spin, it is by far the nicest Olympic lifting bar I have owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar...........bearings are smooth I retired my old bar made without bearings in favor of this new bar. The free-spinning nature of the bearings make all lifts so much easier. I love my new bar!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liked the bar more than I thought The gnarling is not to aggressive for everyday use. The spin is very good for the price. Whip is on par with most bars if you are a lifter who takes advantage of bar whip. Good bar for serious lifters.
