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 200K 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 5.0 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great grip, strong, beautiful I’ve used this bar for about 2 months and absolutely love it. Just the right amount of grip. Beautiful finish in raw stainless. Would buy again without hesitation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Shiny I have had one previous bar, it was black oxide coated. it started to rust with in the first week. i know i did not use any oils to maintain it but, this bar did not rust and has had no signs of changing its shine. the knurling is a great feel, not too aggressive, enough to allow me to deadlift and feel that i wont let it slip. for the price especially, this is a great bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You won’t be disappointed Bought this on Black Friday 2016, so I’ve had my bar for a while. This thing is super sweet. The knurling is great for tons of reps equally as well as low rep max’s. I’ve pr’ed with this bar on deadlifts, and chalk isn’t really even needed for most training; knurling is that well. I have a bar that spins fantastically, really impressive for bushings. Very well put together, no corners cut. I have purchased 2 other rogue bars, the Cerakote Ohio (black shaft, chrome sleeves/ which is also dope!) and operator 3.0 and this Ohio SS feels as though the build quality was top priority. Still my favorite bar! Purchased shortly after it was released and I received a legit blemish-free, perfect bar. I wipe it down with a rag after use, virtually maintenance free! You’ll love it. In relation to its stainless properties, it’s not needed, but the price for it really is a slick deal. Sweet grip, outdoor use, no maintenance problems, what can I say! Thanks Rogue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I have been using my stainless steel Ohio Bar for three months now and it is fantastic - it looks great, feels great and the quality is fantastic. The bar is perfect for my home workouts with a nice knurl and more than adequate spin. I live in a moist climate and the stainless steel and chrome construction will ensure a long life with minimal maintenance. Thanks Rogue.
