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 331.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around bar I’ve received my bar a few months ago and I love it. I have been using the rogue Olympic weightlifting bar for a few years and wanted to add another bar and stainless steal is the way to go for a garage gym. Minimal up keep by comparison and the knurl is great. I’m not sure I lift heavy enough to notice a big difference in the whip, but I do prefer the slightly thicker bar when doing anything other than the Olympic lifts just because of how it feels in my hands. For those that are wondering if you will notice a spin difference between the Ohio bar and an Oly weightlifting bar, my experience says you will not if you are new to lifting. At this point I can feel a slight difference but it’s very easy to adapt to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gr8 Buy I bought this bar around 7 years ago with the black oxide shaft/sleeves (or was it the zinc?). I needed a quality, all-around bar, and it does not disappoint. I live in Los Angeles, have only cleaned it once with 3-in-1 oil, and the bar still performs well. It's not cerakote, but she's my baby, and I love her just the way she is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicest Bar I have ever used Dudes, I am a serious lifter with serious needs. I belong to a gym that shut down, so I say let's not mess around no more and just build a gym. I just got my stuff yesterday and didn't realize the difference between standard gym bar compared to this bar. I honestly went from a max deadlift of 200 pounds to a max deadlift of 225. The bar felt amazing from start of the lift to the end. I actually convinced a lot of my buddies to get one. So you are welcome Rogue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bar! It was a no brainer for me to purchase a rogue bar. They are the best in the industry! I love the cerakote color option to get a more custom looking bar! My gym isn’t doesn’t yet.. this is just phase 1 of the items I got but the red bar looks good! I’ve used Ohio bars before in the gyms I used to go to but now that I live a little more in the country, I have decided to go the home gym route. It’s a great all around bar and no need for a specialty bar unless you really want to specialize in a particular lift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, Do It All, Barbell I would say that this is one of the most versatile bars you can own. If you are looking for just one bar that will enable you to do practically everything with it (the olympic lifts, powerlifting, general strength training, etcetera)-- I would say go ahead and go with the Ohio Bar. It is stiff enough to perform heavy pressing, pulling and squatting-- but it also has enough whip to do the olympic lifts well. It is a very nice compromise between the two lifting styles while providing a reliable spin on the collars. The knurling is perfect, I feel it is one of the best qualities about the bar. It is not too aggressive, but still extremely grippy without biting into your hands, very nice job Rogue. I went with the black oxide and I am very happy with it. I have really enjoyed using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Bar I'm by no means an expert on any type of lifting, but having had the bar for a couple weeks now, it feels better (smoother bearing, perfect knurl) than other bars I've used in gyms. Shipping something like this is no easy feat, it arrived with packaging tore on one end, but the bar had no scratches or defects at all. Great to buy made in USA too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Bar Absolute quality through and through. Love my Ohio bar and love the color option!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Versatile Bar Only problem with the bar is that the sleeves wear down and get scratched up so fast when using iron plates on it....but its workout equipment, don't expect it to look new forever. If you are wanting a versatile bar that works with many styles of lifting such as olympic, powerlifting, and other things then this is the bar for you. KNURL: The knurl is nice and does not tear into your hands when doing any type of olympic or powerlifting exercises but still provides plenty of grip for your exercises. The Ohio Bar does not have a center knurl like the power bar, but I much more prefer this when doing lifts like squats because it does not tear into my back and make me uncomfortable when lifting. You may want to opt for the ohio power bar for this reason though if the center knurl is a must for you. SPIN: The bar spins nicely for olympic lifts and feels great with no clunkiness in the bearings that would keep the bar from spinning correctly. OVERALL: Happy with this product and recommend it to anybody who plans on doing many different styles of lifting because of the versatility of this bar.
