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

Rogue 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.

E-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.

Very Happy
I bought this a few weeks ago and I couldn’t be happier! I have been using a very old generic bar for years. Honestly I never thought there was any difference. After reading many of these reviews I decided to bite the bullet and purchase one! I was very surprised at just how much of a difference I could tell between the 2 bars. Obviously the look but the feel! The bushing on my old bar were so worn out and I just thought it felt “normal” to me at least . Until i did some clean jerks, and wow what a difference. Packaging was great, shipping was even better. Very very happy with this purchase.

A Crafted Bar
Very few things are made in America with American sourced materials. This here exemplifies the old American artisan spirit. It is by far the best bar I have felt in my hands in my life. A well made tool that does what it was designed to do.

Hard to keep clean, poor coating of cerakote
The bar treated me right for a while but then chipped after I tried to clean it. I live in a humid climate (and have sweaty hands) so I use a decent amount of chalk. I would brush (using a nylon brush) the barbell and use oil on it every month or so. Eventually, the chalk build up was not going away and started to show signs of rust. I tried all different sorts of brushing but could never get the chalk or rust to fully go away. I finally resorted to soaking the shaft in a diluted white vinegar mixture. This was a bad idea as the cerakote began chipping away. This is surprising as white vinegar would not cause any damage to guns coated in cerakote but that's not the case with this weak coating of cerakote. Now I have parts of my barbell showing bare metal. The bar is fine if you don't ever use chalk. But if you do use chalk and don't clean it after every workout, eventually chalk and rust will build up and it is practically impossible to deeply clean it

Thank you for taking the time to post this! Here is what we recommend for keeping our bars clean: 1) Use a dry nylon bristle brush to remove the outer layer of chalk. 2) Wipe down the bar with a 3-in-One Oil and brush into the knurl with the nylon bristle brush. The steel will soak the oil in and the bar will stay healthy. 3) Wipe off any excess oil and chalk with a dry towel.

Best I’ve used.
I bought a cerakote Ohio bar and Olympic weight package and, wow. The quality and durability of the finish is great. The fit is perfect and they feel 100% secure with the rogue hg2.0 collars I bought as well. The shipping was fast and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase. If you’re on the fence, buy it, it’s worth it.

BUYER BEWARE ON BLACK SLEEVES
I've owned multiple rouge barbells and currently am beyond satisfied with my chan bar w/ chrome sleeves. However if you purchase any rogue barbells with cerakote sleeves/proprietary matte black sleeves be prepared for them to get horribly scratched up with regular plate loading/unloading. Yes they look great out of box but within a couple months regular use they will be nearly unrecognizable. If keeping your barbell in pristine condition is important, highly recommend avoiding any of their black sleeve options and stick to chrome.

EXCELLENT BAR
I got tired of my old chrome bar peeling (actually slicing my leg doing deadlifts). GREAT upgrade and worth every nickel.

Plates difficult to put on/off
I bought the bar with the black ends 3 months ago and it’s been nothing but problems getting plates on/off the bar. There are little grooves on the ends of the bar, unlike a smooth chrome bar, and the plates catch on them. So, after a tough set I’m stuck holding a bar up for a long time struggling to wiggle plates off a little at a time. The bar looks cool, but I wish I had gone with the regular smooth chrome ends.

Thank you for your feedback! All of our sleeves - Chrome, Cerakote and Proprietary Matte Black will have these grooves. The Proprietary Matte Black metal treatment process also hardens the steel, which can cause some additional friction with plates that have a chamfer.
