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.

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.

  • 4Use It With These Other Rogue Products

    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.

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.

*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 Westside Power Bar 2.0 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for squat bench deadlift I wanted the Ohio Power bar in bare steel because that has to be the best value out there but the Westside Power bar was available first and I'm glad I pulled the trigger even at the higher price point. The bar is perfect for squat bench deadlift. The black sleeves do get beat up but I only care about performance not looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I expected The Westside bar doesn’t disappoint. It’s sturdy and adds a level of difficulty to DL’s. I’ve not experienced chipping of the coating and we’re pretty tough on this bar. Mainly used for DL’s and the Burlington, while not super aggressive, is tacky. You don’t really need chalk. It’s worth the money in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for Garage gym power lifter, purchased as a bar upgrade. All around awesome. Knurling is aggressive but won’t tear your hands up. 10/10 recommend
Date published: 2020-11-03
Rated 3 out of 5 by from bar is just OK. Only a medium knurl The biggest let down of the bar is the knurl. It is a medium knurl. I personally don't feel like it even approaches aggressive. Also, not a fan of black zinc. I would be better if it were only on the bar and not the sleeves. one use and the coating on the sleeves is marred and scratched. I knew this going in, so I'm not knocking the bar for that. Other than the knurl, it is as I expected, but the knurl is a big let down

Rated 4 out of 5 by from well made, stands up to a beating, recomended. this was the first power bar i purchased and after heavy use in my gym (3 multiply training cycles) meaning this bar has constantly been banged, slammed, and crashed with 600+ on it for over a year it is still a great bar, although the finish has taken a bit of beating and the knurl has been worn down in some places where it contacts the j-cups overall i would recommend this bar but rougue could do alot more with this bar. for example incorporating the design of the old westside bulldog bar with a 29-30mm shaft, and longer collars. that is the only disapointing thing about this bar is that it is essentialy well branded OPB. westside bulldog bar specs? green carakote? would love to see that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Immediately made me want to move to Ohio, live in my car, put bands on everything and become a protein smashing monster. That and I love the knurl. Solid bar.
Date published: 2020-10-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid bar Bar is great for bench squat deadlift and overhead press. Don’t do cleans so can’t say. Knurling is mild/moderate not smooth, York and ivanko plates fit on the bar, bar is 29mm a little bigger which I like am used to. Shipping was expensive as live in Hawaii Bar finish is nice and looks great. Some black finish rubs off on sleeves with use but is expected. Happy with purchase
