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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long way to Dubai but I finally got my Ohio Bar It was a long way to Dubai and a couple of week for the delivery but I can't be more happy to have my own Stainless Steel Ohio Bar at home. Amazing piece of art and engineering at the same time. I would surely buy again from Rogue but hope you will soon showcase all your products in Dubai.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Grip and Finish Figuring it was about time to replace my old bar produced in China I've had for 30 years, I received my Rogue Ohio Bar today. The bar has a very good grip as the knurling and finish are excellent. Buyers should be aware, the sleeves are ribbed, not smooth as shown in the photos. Rogue should make this detail known within the description of this bar. Personally I would have preferred a bar without the ribbing as I always use collars and do not like the sound generated while sliding on the plates. Having said that, the ribbing is closely stacked thus the sound is greatly reduced. Overall pleased with this purchase and look forward to many year of training with my new Ohio Bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional quality and craftsmanship I've been doing CrossFit and Olympic Lifting for 2 years now, and just using the bars at my gym, which has an array of Rogue bars. I figured it was time to invest in my own, and the Ohio Bar, was worth the investment. The grip is impeccable, the thickness of the bar is just right, and the spin is perfect for squat cleans, snatches and a variety of movements. I would highly recommend investing in a barbell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every cent My kid and I bought this bar and had it customized for us. It wasn't cheap, but we could not be more thrilled. Gorgeous, feels great in the hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality bar for my garage gym Great knurling (not too rough, not too light), low maintenance, high quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bar, but don't get cerakote selves. The bar is great, however if I would purchase another or again I would definitely get the chrome selves. The Cerakote wares off very easily on the sleeves from putting on bumper plates. I noticed the wear after 3 uses. When I contacted Rogue they said that wear from metal on metal contact is expected... this was a disappointing reply. I did not expect this at all seeing as cerakote is toughed for its durability. Now, my bar that is supposed to be maintenance free will require normal steel bar maintenance (which defeats the purpose of choosing this specific bar). Rogue was unwilling to offer any type of compromise or send me replacement chrome sleeves even inside of the return window. Im giving 4 stars because otherwise the bar is as advertised.
