The Ohio Bar - E-Coat


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 319.
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 4 out of 5 by from OHIO Bar Love the bar! The dual knurling marks are great for Oly & powerlifting. Not the harshest knurling on the hands but just enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Geezer Gym I decided to upgrade my garage with Rogue equipment and couldn't be happier with my choice. I am 56 years old and finally decided to upgrade to a higher quality, nicer looking gym. All I need now is a couple horse stall matts and I'll be good to go. This will make an excellent geezer gym. Zero commute time!
