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.

Note on Stainless Steel: Barbells made from raw steel are not plated and therefore marks from the machining process may be visible.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and feels amazing I love this bar....motivational and super feel. Top quality like everything I get from Rogue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As always, incredible craftsmanship built to last Like everything Rogue makes, this bar is phenomenal in every respect. It arrived well packaged, almost too well packaged; I puzzled over the tube for about half an hour before finally getting a handhold on the tearaway portion and extricating the bar. I've used the bar consistently for about a month now. The whip is excellent, and the cerakote finish is much more durable than the black oxide finish I had on a previous barbell. I strongly recommend the upgrade. The navy color hits the spot. It's understated but gorgeous, and it looks great hanging in my apartment. For staple gear like this, don't bother looking at the competition. Rogue makes the best stuff, and this is more of the same—well worth the price, and then some.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar Like this bar a lot, like the quality of the bar and how well it’s made. And one of the best things about this bar is it’s made in the USA, thanks Rogue for another great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Impressed!! Rogue has impressed me with high quality products and this one is no different! I have used plenty of bars over the years in but never a Rogue one. This is my first..... and WOW! I never felt a bar this SOLID! I will be buying all of my barbells from Rogue from now on! Not to mention it looks beautiful!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No issues Solid, no issues. Bar and sleeves have scratches after a moderate amount of use. Unsure if cerakote upgrade is worth it. Overall solid, may save some money and opt for the black zinc instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny After reading hundreds and hundreds of reviews, after looking at several different barbell sellers, I bought the stainless steel Ohio bar from Rogue. I like first that the barbell was made in America. Second, I don’t think you can beat stainless steel. This is the best all around bar for the cost. My only suggestion would be to add a passive center knurl, similar to the Chan bar. It has exceeded all my expectations. I have zero regrets with my choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bar We picked the all black version for our garage gym. We wanted something durable in changing climates. The knurling on this bar is fantastic! It’s like Velcro in your palms. Solid black looks good too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful bar. Perfect all purpose bar. My son and I added this bar to our new garage gym. We chose the black zinc and chromed sleeves version so it could match our color scheme.
