Rogue Westside Power Bar 2.0

Co-developed with powerlifting legend and strength coach Louie Simmons, Rogue’s redesigned Westside Power Bar is now fully machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio—just down the road from Simmons’ renowned Westside Barbell training facility.

The Westside Power Bar 2.0 features a 29mm diameter, 205K PSI tensile strength shaft with single powerlifting knurl marks and a center knurl. The updated knurl pattern was chosen specifically to Louie’s standards, and is deep and coarse without being sharp or abrasive. The bar also features a durable snap-ring design, bronze bushings, and a black zinc coating on both the shaft and sleeves.

  • Lifetime Warranty against bending*

*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.

What Sets the Westside Power Bar Apart:

  • 1Developed with Louie Simmons

    We worked directly with legendary powerlifter, strength coach, and Westside Barbell founder Louie Simmons to fine-tune this bar into one worthy of both the Rogue and Westside names. Every element of Version 2.0, from the knurling to the finish to the endcaps, was held to a champion’s standard. We believe this bar ranks with some of the best power bars ever made, but the words “Louie Simmons Approved” say more than we ever could.

  • 2205,000 PSI Steel

    The Westside Power Bar’s 29mm diameter steel shaft now has 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. Includes a lifetime warranty against bending.*

  • 3Aggressive Knurl

    We updated the knurl pattern for Version 2.0 of the Westside Power Bar, turning again to Louie Simmons to test and refine an aggressive, precision powerlifting knurl—deep and coarse without being uncomfortably sharp or abrasive. A center knurl is also included for added “stick” to the back during squats.

  • 4

    Westside Power Bar owners can use the bar 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.

  • 5Black Zinc Finish

    The Westside Power Bar has a distinct look, featuring a Black Zinc coating on the shaft and sleeves, plus new green endcaps with the Rogue and Westside logos. Black Zinc has one of the lowest oxidation rates of any barbell finish, meaning it requires less upkeep and will look like new over the long haul, now matter how much abuse you put it through.

Rogue Westside Power Bar 2.0 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bar but not worth the extra $ The bar is great nice aggressive knurling no whip at all much better than any old commercial Gym bar zinc finish is very easily blemished but looks beautiful out of the box. Overall great bar for more serious powerlifting

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what I expected Like all other reviews state the knurling on it is very aggressive. I will use a different bar for most other movements besides deadlifting and squats because of how aggressive the knurling is. The only complaint I have about the bar is black on the sleeves is already beginning to fade after only 2 uses. Also when I reciveved the bar it already had scratches on the bearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Power Lifting Bar I bought this bar about a year and a half ago. Great bar for the big 3. Not so great for olympic lifting when compared to the Ohio Bar or the Operator Bar (which I also own). The only complaint I have is the finish. I wish it was more durable but other than that, I defiantly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bar Bar is tough as nails. Especially good for the squat with the center knurling. Best for bench and squat certainly not Oly lifts. It's great for deadlifts but prepare to be humbled for a few reasons. The knurling is slip-proof but can feel too aggressive with high volume. Also it's 29mm so relatively wide for gripping. And it's extremely stiff so you won't get any help the first few inches. But train deadlifts with this bar for a while then go to your meet or a commercial gym and prepare to pull seriously upwards of 25% more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bar but... This bar, along with the Ohio power bar has great knurl and is extremely solid. It's a bad choice when used with a Rougue 3x3 rack. Bar needs more space between the sleeves. Even the slightest off center unrack puts the plates very close to the safety arms or safety straps. Works great with the 2x3 racks and benches and is a great value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just buy an ohio power bar This is a great bar but when i purchased it i also bought an ohp(ohio power bar) and they are identical. plus the black zinc, comes off on the collars during first use. its nice to keep but i would just buy the ohp if i did it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar!!! This bar is excellent. It has zero whip and is very stiff even at higher poundage. Perfect for the big 3. If you are looking to shave a few bucks off the price, go with the Ohio Power Bar. Aside from visual aesthetics, Rogue has stated these bars are identical in performance characteristics (even the knurling is the same). But overall it's an awesome bar and awesome to look at.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Bar Kicks All Kinds of Butt Had the Westside Power Bar 2.0 for a few days now and this bar is Rockin. The knurling is on a whole nother level and for me the bar just seems fatter in my hands like it's 30mm. I'm married to the bar now and use it for my rack work or when I'm bustin out complexes... I just love the feel and the stiffness. My Texas Power Bar is now my Deadlift Bar.
