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 Great bar One month of use so far and I am happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I have a few bars and the cerakote bar is defiantly my favorite. It looks great and wears well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As always, incredible craftsmanship built to last Like everything Rogue makes, this bar is phenomenal in every respect. It arrived well packaged, almost too well packaged; I puzzled over the tube for about half an hour before finally getting a handhold on the tearaway portion and extricating the bar. I've used the bar consistently for about a month now. The whip is excellent, and the cerakote finish is much more durable than the black oxide finish I had on a previous barbell. I strongly recommend the upgrade. The navy color hits the spot. It's understated but gorgeous, and it looks great hanging in my apartment. For staple gear like this, don't bother looking at the competition. Rogue makes the best stuff, and this is more of the same—well worth the price, and then some.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar Like this bar a lot, like the quality of the bar and how well it’s made. And one of the best things about this bar is it’s made in the USA, thanks Rogue for another great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Impressed!! Rogue has impressed me with high quality products and this one is no different! I have used plenty of bars over the years in but never a Rogue one. This is my first..... and WOW! I never felt a bar this SOLID! I will be buying all of my barbells from Rogue from now on! Not to mention it looks beautiful!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No issues Solid, no issues. Bar and sleeves have scratches after a moderate amount of use. Unsure if cerakote upgrade is worth it. Overall solid, may save some money and opt for the black zinc instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny After reading hundreds and hundreds of reviews, after looking at several different barbell sellers, I bought the stainless steel Ohio bar from Rogue. I like first that the barbell was made in America. Second, I don’t think you can beat stainless steel. This is the best all around bar for the cost. My only suggestion would be to add a passive center knurl, similar to the Chan bar. It has exceeded all my expectations. I have zero regrets with my choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bar We picked the all black version for our garage gym. We wanted something durable in changing climates. The knurling on this bar is fantastic! It’s like Velcro in your palms. Solid black looks good too.
