The Ohio Bar - Stainless Steel

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 weightlifting bars on the market.

Key Features of This Ohio Bar:

  • 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.

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.

Whichever barbell finish you choose, Rogue has provided some helpful tips for long term Bar Care & Maintenance.

The Ohio Bar - Stainless Steel is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 354.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love this bar. I have two of these and love them. You know how when you pick up a cheap wrench, a cheap pistol or a cheap knife and then you pick up something that was made by Snap On, Sig Sauer or Emerson Knives? It's like that. The balance, knurl, spin and finish let you know it was worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar I bought this bar so that I could really do my workouts in superset fashion to try to save some time. My Other bar is an Ohio Power Bar that I absolutely love. I bought this one because I wanted to get a bar that has more whip to use for deadlifts, rows, and cleans. It works great although I don't feel to much difference when deadlifting but I may not be able to lift enough to where you could feel it. All in all I am glad that I bought this bar as Easily cut off 25 minutes from my workouts by using 2 bars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Let Freedom Ring Since I purchased this bar, my sense of freedom and liberty have increased tenfold. Eagles soar higher when this baby is in use. It makes me feel ten years younger (which is still to old). Freedom Bar for the win!
