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.

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.

Fantastic features, clearly the best in the indust
Where do I start? I purchased a full set of plates and the Ohio zinc bar from Rogue. I ordered these at the recommendation of a friend of mine who had great experiences with Rogue gear. My wife and I created a home gym due to the crazy gym membership prices where we live, and while Rogue isn't the least expensive option available, their quality speaks volumes. I ordered the zinc Ohio bar with a set of deep dish 45s, 35s, and 25s, plus 10s, 5s, and 2.5s. The quality is superb and I can tell this is a set that will last several years and hundreds of workouts! If I ever become strong enough to buy more weight, Rogue will be my first stop. Big thanks to the Rogue team on their craftsmanship.

Functional Bar; Poor Cerakote Application
Purchased this two years ago and after about 1-2 months, noticed some rusting in the areas where my hands are typically for deadlifts/cleans. I thought that if I kept oiling the bar every 3-4 weeks, I would mitigate the rusting and the areas wouldn’t get worse. The bar stays in the garage, is brushed regularly to prevent chalk from sitting on it too long, and only has one user. I understand that the humidity here in TX doesn’t help but I expected better out of a rogue barbell. I am very disappointed with the quality of the cerakote coating. Now, I can’t let the bar go longer a couple before the rust gets really bad on it. We bought the junior barbell that has the black zinc coating around the same time and there is no rusting. Doesn’t make sense unless there was a bad application of the cerakote.

Stop debating.
I am a very particular person; I looked for months researching all types of barbells. All the knurl patterns, all the finishes. I did the analysis of cost over time in terms of investment and I finally built up the courage to buy the stainless Ohio bar. The second I opened it, I knew I had made the right choice. It's not as stiff as a Power bar for squats, but for every other thing I do with it, I couldn't be happier. I touch my barbell 6 days a week. The cost of that barbell is $1.60/day for the first year I lift. I expect to have this stainless steel barbell the rest of my life.

Used bar?
Got my Ohio bar in just yesterday. Was super stoked. Unfortunately, as soon as I pull it out of the box I immediately noticed chips on the sleeve and the logo coming apart. Seriously! Not what I’d expect when paying premium for a reputable bar and company. Really not what I was expecting from Rogue.

Great Bar
Love the knurling, smooth rotation of the sleeves and the sleek look of the black zinc coating. I opted for the black zinc since this will be used in a closed garage with high summer humidity and cold winters in NJ, so hoping that the coating will extend life of bar. Arrived in heavy duty packaging with no damage to bar. Zero complaints after seven weeks of ownership, would purchase again.

Fantastic. Typical Rogue- high quality.
Home gym use. Navy/black cerekote, looks brand new over a year later. What can be said that hasn't already? All my Rogue bars so far have been extremely nice quality and very durable.

most excellent bar
I had been eyeing this bar for far too long and once my gym closed due to CV19 I picked one up to replace a cheap bar I had picked up at Play It Again Sports and so glad I did. There's sometimes truth in the saying "you get what you pay for". Excellent quality bar at a good price point. I wish I could say I have used it a lot, yet after 2 years it looks pretty new.
