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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best premium barbell for average gym rats I do mainly powerlifting movements with some power cleans, and this barbell was perfect in terms of knurling/grip and maintenance. I live in PNW where it rains all the time, and all I do to maintain this barbell is use nylon brush to remove debris which takes 10 sec. I like how it looks as well. Only thing I might wish is SS sleeves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving the bar I bought this two months ago, and this Ohio Bar is great. It feels high quality and I love using this bar. My only complaint would be the scratches and nicks near both snap rings. Overall, I love the product and it’s integrity is solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bar for beginner The bar is a staple for any size home gym. I am not a powerlifter or go for PR and cannot speak to having very heavy weights on it. It functions great for my WODs and very happy with it so far. The knurling is just right and not going to tear your hands on those days you go HAM. There are ridges on the sleeve, which is will keep the plates from sliding without a collar. Buy nice, not twice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Ohio Bar - Stainless Steel Review I purchased the Ohio Bar - Stainless Steel version on 3/24; delivered on 3/30. Initially, I was hesitant to purchase a Stainless version of the OB, due to the increased price versus incremental benefits. The Ohio Bar - Stainless Steel delivers with a firm, and (in my opinion) flawless knurling that can be used for long training sessions without premature hand wear. I use this bar for general weightlifting use, with powerlifting sessions mixed between; squatting without the center knurling is a nonissue, and even better when front squatting. Chrome sleeves on the Stainless version, which I find to be of high quality, and reliable with rotation from the composite bushings (unknown if Olympic lifts would require a needle bearing solution or not). Overall, this is an outstanding product, that I intend to use for years to come. Great Work Rogue Fitness! Happy Customer.
