Stainless Steel Ohio Bar

The new stainless steel version of our 20KG Rogue Ohio Bar is machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, and features a 200,000 PSI tensile strength shaft, chrome sleeves, and an exclusive Rogue knurl pattern that’s 100% in its original, machined form for an unmatched feel.

With quality composite bushings and dual knurl marks, the Stainless Steel Ohio Bar is optimized for both Olympic lifts and Powerlifting—delivering a firm but non-abrasive grip, a consistent spin, and a unique balance of whip and rigidity.

We call it the Ohio Bar because we think it represents more than just the Rogue brand. It’s a testament to where we work, who we are, and the pride we feel in making the best American-made weightlifting bars on the market. To check out the same bar with zinc or black oxide finish options, see our standard Ohio Bar page.

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 This Ohio Bar Apart:

  • 1200,000 PSI Steel

    This high tensile strength steel is manufactured in the USA and has proven to be one of the best steel variants for a multi-purpose barbell. Each barbell shaft is ground and polished prior to machining, allowing for a very smooth finish.

  • 2Machining

    Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio. A great deal of pride is built into each bar as the knurling process is an art. We spent months working on the knurl we believe to be the best for the Ohio Bar.

    To test the knurl it is more a beer tasting process than exact measurement. There is a look and feel that go into testing every bar.

  • 3The Look & Feel of Stainless Steel

    With no plating, the knurl on the Stainless Steel Ohio Bar is left exactly how we machined it, providing a great feel that cannot be achieved with other finishes. It’s similar to the knurl feel from a bare steel shaft, but with better corrosion resistance. The combination of a stainless steel shaft and chrome sleeves also creates a sharp look with few equals. Please Note: Rogue recommends using a synthetic bristle brush, NOT a steel brush, to clean a stainless steel shaft. Steel on steel can cause rusting over time. See more tips here: Bar Care & Maintenance.

  • 4Assembly

    The Ohio Bar is assembled with the same black composite bushings as the Rogue Bar 2.0, which act as bearing surfaces between the bar sleeve and bar shaft. This is a very robust way of building a barbell, and can produce a smooth, consistent spin not possible with lesser import bars. Each bar comes with an “Ohio Bar Card” that has the initials of the Rogue team member that built it.

  • 5Performance

    The multi-purpose Ohio Bar will have normal “whip” during Olympic weightlifting and enough stiffness to hold for heavy Powerlifting. The steel in this bar is proven as an excellent choice for weightlifters.

  • 6Fast Rogue Shipping

    Rogue prides itself on fast, professional shipping. If your bar is ordered by 3PM EST Monday-Friday, it will ship same day. Your bar will be packaged safely and ship fast. You can follow the progress of your order using the Rogue Shipping Tracker.

The Ohio Bar - Stainless Steel is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 306.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great overall I bought this bar recently. It has held up nice for the time being and most likely for awhile.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh This is the primary bar at the gym I go to. It's a semi-commercial gym with brand new equipment. The gym has been open for about 6 months or so now. A few of the bars are already warped/bent. Almost all don't spin freely ... mind you, they likely have never been lubricated/maintained, but for under a year's worth of use? Seems pretty poor. Yes, the bar is subject to your typical commercial gym ape, but I've seen idiots doing heavy rack pulls at my other gym that uses a different brand that maintain their straightness. I would not recommend this bar. I personally own an Ohio Power Bar and love the heck out of it. I would definitely opt for that over this bar. Even for oly lifts, the bearings on this bar don't seem to hold up well. JMHO.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't ask for more Cerakote finish is holding up great using outdoors and looks pretty sweet too. Knurling is perfect for my liking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bar I have had this bar for 2 months and it has been awesome. Packaging was A+ as one would expect and it has added a quality to my garage gym than any bar out there. The knurl on the bar is perfect for me and my wife who use the bar. It is definitely our daily driver and it hasn’t not failed us. Best Bar out there.
