The stainless steel version of our 15KG Women’s Bella Bar upgrades the tensile strength of the shaft to 200,000 PSI while delivering the best oxidation resistance of any barbell in the Rogue arsenal. Many athletes favor stainless steel for getting the best “true” feel of the knurl, as it was intended.


CRAFTED FOR EXCELLENCE IN COLUMBUS, OH

Each Stainless Steel Bella Bar is fully machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, and includes dual knurl marks (no center knurl), bronze bushings, standard Bella Bar end caps and optional chrome or stainless steel sleeves.


ENHANCED FEATURES

Best In Class Durability:  Engineered to withstand the increased demands that functional movements and Olympic lifts place on barbells today through overhead drops.  Read more here.

2X Quieter Performance: Refined with even stricter tolerances, precision-machined bronze bushings fit tighter around the shaft, and improved internal sleeve tolerances dampen sound and eliminate unwanted movement, ensuring a smoother and more stable lift.


UNMATCHED REPUTATION

Best In Class Durability

With a F-Scale rating of F8-R, the Bella Bar is among the most durable barbells in its class. By optimizing materials and manufacturing techniques, the Bella Bar has been engineered to withstand the increased demands that CrossFit, Olympic lifting and functional fitness place on barbells today.  Read more here.

Chrome SLeeve Finish

A chrome finished sleeve contrasts with the stainless shaft, adding both oxidation resistance and a more classic look to this state-of-the-art barbell.

Loading
Loading

2X QUIETER PERFORMANCE

Using precision machining, we are able to tighten the fit of the sleeve on the shaft which means a smoother spin, a more connected feeling while lifting and significant noise reduction.

How It's Made
1

FRICTION WELDING

The collars of the sleeves are friction welded, creating the strongest sleeves in the industry. This bond is as strong as if machined from a single piece of steel, while saving on waste and cost. 

Rogue Work Hardening
2

Rogue Work Hardening

Our patented, proprietary process more than doubles the durability and lifespan of the barbell shaft compared to our competitors. 

Chrome Sleeve Coating Option
3

Chrome Sleeve Coating Option

Our chrome plated sleeve finish is performed in a facility that also plates parts for military aircraft where durability is critical. 

State-of-the-art Gauging
4

State-of-the-art Gauging

We use gauging normally employed in the aerospace industry to ensure that every bar that makes it to a customer is exactly as designed.

Barbell Durability

RUST RESISTANCE

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.

BARBELL DURABILITY

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.

Loading

F SCALE™ APPLICATION

How a barbell is used will affect its durable lifespan and it's a key factor in determining what type of F Rating™ might be suitable for your gym's needs. This graph correlates the F Rating™ of a barbell with different types of usage in order to predict the durable lifespan. Using this data, we are able to make recommendations on what F Rating™ is appropriate for different training situations. With a rating of F8-R, the Bella Bar is rated to last 16 years in a high volume CrossFit gym and will outlast a lifetime of lifting in an Olympic Weightlifting gym, a home gym or a Powerlifting gym.

TENSILE STRENGTH

Expressed in PSI, tensile strength measures the maximum weight a barbell can support before deforming. The 200K tensile strength falls within the optimal range of not bending under normal use, yet not been inflated to the point that it will shorten the life of the bar.

BARBELL KNURLING EXPLAINED

Our signature knurl, designed for multi-purpose use, provides a firm grip without being abrasive. This falls in the middle of the road on the knurl scale, striking a balance without being overly aggressive or passive.

Key Features of the Bella Bar 2.0 - Stainless Steel:

Upgraded Strength
1

Upgraded Strength

The shaft of the Stainless Steel Bella Bar has a tensile strength of 200,000 PSI (higher than the black zinc and Cerakote models) and the best corrosion resistance of any barbell we offer. 

“True” Feel of Stainless Steel
2

“True” Feel of Stainless Steel

With no plating, the knurl on the Stainless Steel Bella 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. 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 and Maintenance.

Rogue Machining and Assembly
3

Rogue Machining and Assembly

Built to International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) standards for women’s competition barbells, the 15KG Bella Bar offers a slightly condensed size from standard men’s bars without sacrificing any of the performance elements. Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio, with carefully refined knurling for a firm but non-abrasive grip. The snap ring design and quality bronze bushings create less axial and radial float of the sleeves (i.e. enhanced stability), significant noise reduction, and a more solid feel throughout the lift.

Bar is great
Love the look and feel of it. Performance is good. The knurl is a bit rougher, but so far hasn’t created any issues for my hands.

Not as expected
I bought this bar for my wife two years ago, when Rogue offered both stainless sleeves and shaft. It has been inside for more than one of those years and only been in a garage for 10 months and is already starting to rust. I paid a significant premium for this bar and it makes me wonder if this thing is really as advertised.g

Quality Control is slipping at Rogue
I ordered my Wife a SS Bella bar, when it came in the surface was scuffed in multiple places and one of the sleeves had a gouge in it. And it's already started to stain a bit as well. The feel is good and it does its job. But the QC has fallen off. This should of been a bone yard bar.

Disappointed
I really do not understand how everyone says how high quality Rogue barbells are. I received the stainless steel barbell and first things first the packaging was terrible!! No end caps I guess they had fell off in transit and the barbell was literally just shoved in the tube with no wrapping or protection of any kind inside. The barbell itself had scuffs all along the shaft that rogue says were usual with stainless steel barbells. I have an American barbell stainless steel barbell that arrived with no marks of this sort. Also the barbell is very loud and rattles when even just placed on the ground again Rogue says this is normal yet every other barbell I own doesn’t rattle like that even after repetitive drops. I am flabbergasted at the low quality of this barbell and for customer service saying this is normal quality. Just awful!! I was excited to get a full stainless steel barbell but now I’m just sad and disappointed that I wasted so much money on this inferior piece of equipment.

Great Little Bar!
I purchased the stainless/stainless version of this bar for my wife, who wanted to learn to lift weights. Since she's never lifted weights before, I had concerns an OPB would be too much, too soon. So I bought her this as a starter bar. It's a fantastic little bar. The quality of the stainless steel is every bit as good as my stainless OPB's. My home gym is located in a sometimes humid environment, so I opted for the stainless version to reduce corrosion. After holding the Bella bar in hand, I'm very pleased. The knurling is more on the passive side. Still grippy, but not too over the top to be shocking to someone who's never experienced knurl. The smaller diameter of the shaft is great for my wife's smaller hands. Sleeve spin is good. This is probably the highest quality women's bar you can buy for the money. If I had any negatives to say, it would be nice if the bar had a center knurl for squatting, but that's nitpicking. If I had to do it all over, i would definitely choose this bar.

The perfect barbell
Bought this for my wife for our garage gym and it's perfect. Fits all of her needs. No real deep explanation other than it is perfect for all types of movements and highly rust resistant!

Great Bar for women or juniors
I bought this bar for my 10yr old son. Originally I was going to buy the Junior bar, however after more consideration I chose the Bella bar. I am happy I did. The junior bar weighs 10kg (22lbs) which he probably would have outgrown quickly. The Bell bar weighs 15kg (33) which he can already lift easily, even overhead. Additionally, this bar is offered in more durable and corrosion resistant options such as the stainless steel that I chose. It also has chrome sleeves rather than the Bright Zinc on the Junior bar. The bar also has a longer sleeve length which will hold more weight as he grows. The bar diameter is the same between the two so this one will still fit his hands until he decides to switch to a men's bar.

Bella Stainless Steel Bar
I’m very pleased with this bar. Since it is shorter, lighter, and has a smaller diameter, it can be a more comfortable bar in many situations. I like to use it for military press and for use with my land mind. It is great when you don’t have as much space to maneuver. It is also a beautiful little bar. Matches my Ohio stainless power bar. Some day I’m hoping I can get my wife to use it. But guys, don’t hesitate to buy it.
