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.

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.

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 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Powerlifting This bar is meant to lift heavy...a**...weight and that’s it. Stiff bar that makes deadlifting easy and doesn’t bounce much when squatting. The knurling on this is insane though! The knurls are very aggressive the bar basically sticks to your hands making chalk and straps pretty unnecessary. If you’re looking to do any CrossFit type stuff get a different bar this one will saw your hands in half before you finish a WOD.

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 Money well spent Surprised how few reviews exist for this one so thought i’d chime in. I’ve had this bar for nearly 3 years now and it’s bullet proof (I guess mine would be version 1.0, to be technical). Absolutely spectacular barbell. Ideal for someone whose training skews towards powerlifting (vs Oly or CrossFit); I say that because of the super deep knurling (texture grip) on this one, including center knurling for back-squatting. if you’re doing more than powerlifting (ie Oly or CrossFit) you may want another bar with perhaps softer knurling and absent the center knurling. I know you’re supposed to like oil and brush your barbells for optimal care etc - I confess I don’t and this thing has held up like a charm. Money extremely well spent.

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.
Date published: 2017-05-29
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.
