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.

  • 6Fast Rogue Shipping

    Orders placed by 3PM ship the same day. The Rogue Shipping System allows you to track your order from the time you place it to the time it hits your door. Order today, track today.

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 4.7 out of 5 by 27.
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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid bar. Needed an upgrade due to buying more weights/personal abilities exceeding the bar I had. Bar works great, minimal whip, good knurling that doesn’t tear up the hands. Only complaint is the shipping packaging. Didn’t see a couple of staples that were under loads of tape, and poking through to the inside of the box. Gouged the finish pretty bad during removal. Check for staples before sliding your bar out!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid bar Beautiful bar. Good medium knurling. I only wish it were a little bit longer. Not much clearance on both sides using the SML-1 rack. I have to concentrate a bit too much on getting the bar back properly on the J-cups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Bar from an Amazing Company Bought this for my home gym coming back from deployment, and it has meet and exceeded all my hopes! Knurling is perfect and sticks to your hands without any help from chalk or straps! I use it for all three lifts (deadlifts, squats, and bench) and love the performance for all three!!! Highly recommend!!! Firm believer of you get what you pay for and when you pay for quality you get a quality product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I was really upset because the shipping took two weeks longer than expected. This was not Rogues fault at all though. They actually shipped it out a lot sooner than I was expecting but UPS managed to lose it and after multiple calls of trying to figure out where it was, I was finally able to bring it home. Thankfully it was packaged really well and once I was finally able to open it, I was amazed at how beautiful the bar came out. They did an amazing job with the knurling and it was a joy to finally get a work out in with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Rogue need to stock back up with this barbell soon
Date published: 2020-04-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Incredibly functional, imperfect finish The bar is absolutely fantastic. I already had an Ohio Bar, so I expected that, and it didn't disappoint. The black zinc finish came with hundreds of nicks in it. At first I thought it was metal shavings, and some of them were, but most of them were actual nicks in the black finish. Instead of being black, it looks more like a starry night sky.
