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 4.8 out of 5 by 464.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar! I’ve had this bar for about a month now and it has lived up to the hype. It oozes quality!! I see all these jack wagons on facebook dogging Rogue for not being able to get stuff but Rogue has been the only company that has notified me of in stock items. Didn’t take long for me to decide to go Rogue entirely. My experience with them has been great and the items that I have received so far have all been great quality with the Ohio bar leading the way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money... Worth the wait and the money. It’s not the most expensive bar, but it’s the one that all bars are measured against. Nice knurling and the finish is awesome. I bought this during COVID and couldn’t be happier with it. The gyms are still closed, but the gains are being made in my basement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ohio Bar If they offered agressive knurling for this, then it would be almost perfect for a olympic bar. I don't really care for passive knurling for any Men's barbell. If you want a non center knurl and non aggressive knurling then this bar is for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the Wait! We have Ohio bars at my gym so I already knew how great they are for pretty much anything you need to do! During the shutdown I was missing being able to do barbell work and wanted to have a bar at home. Checked the site everyday and was lucky enough to get an order in. It was about a 3-4 week wait but totally worth it! Love my bar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great barbel, will get scratched easily You don’t want to put this bar on steel hooks, it got scratched instantly when I put it on my bench

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super barbell The best compulsive purchase I've ever made. Quality is above average as usual for all rogue products, this obviously won't be the exception. Don't hesitate to invest this money to have your barbell in home while this ridiculous virus pases away, you won't regret it now and after. It's a must for any home gym owner

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A+ I bought a full set up from Rogue. Only regret is not having done so sooner.
