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.

*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.
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.
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.
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.
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.*
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.
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.
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.
