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 195K 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.

What Sets This Ohio Bar Apart:

  • 1195,000 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 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the feel of this barbell Have had the barbell a little over a month now, using it 4-5 times per week. I cannot speak to the longevity, but the feel in the hands is fantastic. Much more agreesive knurl than my rouge bar (1.0), which I like. Deadlifts stick to my hands, squats stick to my back, the looks is nice and I will appreciate that the finish will not wear through. One downside is that the bar came covered in little flecks of stainless steel. These became very irritating in my hands after the first few lifting sessions. Rogue should be taking a little more time to brush off or clean up the material after the knurling is cut!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressive piece of kit. I was very impressed with the quality and attention to detail of this barbell. The knurl is perfect and spins flawlessly. The barbell is for my home garage gym here in Florida and expect it to resist rust with proper care. This barbell is top notch and priced well for it's quality. No regrets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great!! I went with this bar because of the reviews, of course. I work out in my garage, and needed something low maintenance. I kicked around going with the normal Ohio, but approx 50$ more you get this one. I can't compare it with anything since my younger years in the service overseas, and I'm sure they used cheap stuff. My only issue so far is the shavings that were on it, and it's a bear to get them off. I didn't notice anything until my hands started itching. I tried a lint free rag, duck tape dabbing at it, and a nylon brush...maybe I will try the 3-1 oil hoping it will catch them. It's like it came off the CNC machine, got inspected, and slapped in a box. Oh well, I'll get it sorted out...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I shopped all over when I decided to replace my 32 year old (yes, 1985) chrome Buckeye Barbell bar. Ordered bar on the 3rd and it arrived on the 5th. Packaging was intact and bar looks great! Knurl is perfect! I'm 55 and this will be the last bar I'll ever need, and what a bar! Local gym here has a couple and loves them.
