The Ohio Bar - E-Coat

The latest variation of our flagship Rogue Ohio Bar introduces a new, Black E-Coat shaft finish. This electrically applied coating was first popularized in the auto industry for its reliable coverage, adhesion, and corrosion resistance, and it’s gained even wider favor for its environmental benefits, producing little to no HAPS (Hazardous Air Pollutants) or VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds).

Like all Ohio Bars, the E-Coat model is fully machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio. It includes a 190,000 PSI tensile strength shaft, dual knurl marks (no center knurl), and bright zinc sleeves. The hybrid knurling pattern offers a firm but comfortable grip on both Powerlifts and Oly lifts, while a snap-ring design, quality U.S. steel, and bronze bushings help produce the perfect balance of rigidity and natural whip.

Key Features of This Ohio Bar:

  • 1Rogue Machining and Assembly

    Made with pride in Columbus, Ohio, the 20 KG Ohio Bar has been put to use for years in home gyms; high school, collegiate and pro training programs; CrossFit gyms; military bases . . . anywhere athletes are concerned with quality. Each 190,000 PSI tensile strength steel shaft is ground and polished prior to machining to ensure a better finish, and the dual knurl marks are carefully refined for a firm but non-abrasive grip. The snap ring design, bronze bushings, and quality U.S. steel help produce an ideal combination of the consistent “whip” needed for Oly lifts and the ample rigidity required for heavy powerlifting.

  • 2E-Coat Finish

    The black electrocoat, or E-Coat shaft finish on this Ohio Bar is an electrically-applied paint coating noted for its excellent corrosion resistance, cost efficiency, and green benefits. It has been widely adopted by leading manufacturers for the finishing of auto parts, metal stampings, fasteners, lawn/garden & agricultural equipment, military equipment, and much more. E-Coat finishes stand up to water, sunlight, and household chemicals, and they are compliant with the environmental safety standards of the RoHS, OSHA and EPA.

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 - E-Coat is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 800.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic knurl No matter what I do with this bar, the knurl is perfect. It's super grippy without causing pain or digging in too much. I will say the cerakote rubs off super easily on the sleeves (I got red with black sleeves), no matter how careful you are. Unless you have a bunch of Echo bumpers with their super smooth chrome insides, this won't stay black. Additionally, I made sure to buy sandwich j-hooks to protect the red cerakote, and I do notice a tiny bit of red residue on the plastic of the j-hooks, so I don't think cerakote is for you if you want a perfect finish that is also durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous, sturdy, inspiring. It’s greet, but I don’t get to use it much since my son and his friends always use it! The shine and rich knurling are so tough, fine, and cool... The bar just makes your work with it seem more quality. Needs to be displayed in gym to brag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ohio bar I don’t have much to compare too, but the bar is great. Feels like a good heavy bar like the ones at my old gym. Doesn’t have any cons that I read about on other cheaper bars. Def a great bar for my new home workout station!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great barbell for general use I bought this like 2 months ago, have using this for CrossFit training and so happy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done It's a good bar and gets the job done. I deducted one star because after two months of use, four workouts per week, the Zinc coating is starting to wear away on my bar where it rests on my weight rack.
