KEY FEATURES OF THIS OHIO BAR:

1

New 190,000 PSI Steel

This steel is manufactured in the US and has proven to be one of the best steel variants for a multi-purpose barbell. Each barbell shaft is ground and polished prior to machining which allows the bar to have a very smooth finish post any black oxide or black zinc finish.

2

Machining

Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio. A great deal of pride is built into each bar as the knurling process is an art. We spent months working on the knurl we believe to be the best for the Ohio Bar. To test the knurl it is more a beer tasting process than exact measurement. There is a look and feel that go into testing every bar.

3

Fit and Finish

Each Ohio Bar finish offers a different level of oxidization protection and has a direct effect on the feel of the knurl.

Black Oxide is a mild oxidization protectant process. This type of steel treatment will still require some maintenance but will give the best knurl feel, more like a naked bar.

Zinc is a medium oxidization protectant process. This type of steel treatment requires minimal maintenance and is used on The Rogue and Bella Bars.

The Ohio Bar is also available in Stainless Steel & an advanced ceramic-based coating called Cerakote.

4

Assembly

The Ohio Bar is assembled with bronze bushings which act as bearing surfaces between the bar sleeve and bar shaft. This is a very robust way of building a barbell. Each bar will come with an Ohio Bar card that has the initials of the Rogue team member that built the bar.

5

Performance

This bar will have normal “whip” during Olympic weightlifting and enough stiffness to hold for heavy powerlifting. The steel in this bar is proven as an excellent choice for weightlifters.

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.

Ohio bar
Nice bar. I use it for squat, bench, dead lift, and overhead press mainly. I think the spin is good, but isn’t a concern for me. American steel, you can’t go wrong.

Very happy customer
I don’t usually write reviews, but a great product and great customer service needs to be celebrated. The build quality of the bar is impeccable. The shipment was fast and the packaging was very robust. My bar arrived today and I have already put it to use. The bar is well worth the price.

A solid Barbell
I have used Ohio Bars in the past and have an Ohio Power Bar now. The Black Oxide finish is awesome! I wish the Power Bar would be available in this finish!

Far from perfect
The bar is OK. I know that the claim is that much engineering went into the design, but it does not amount to much if you are not throwing it loaded. I like that it is stainless steel. Where the bar truly falls short is in the knurling. It’s a diamond shape with a point, and that point is SHARP! Yes, I get it, more friction, but I bet you can achieve nearly the same without a sharp edge. C'mon guys, you already have it in the lathe... simply remove a few microns! I have skin injuries by contact with the bar. My bald head has been scratched a few times, and I mean bloody. Also my forearms. Would i buy it again? Nope. Would I recommend it? Nopagain. It's steel. It does not bend under 300 lb (my max) and that is all good. There are plenty of much more inexpensive alternatives that do the same.

We're sorry to hear you are not thrilled with your Stainless Steel Ohio Bar! This variant is not plated which gives you the most natural feel of our standard knurling. Our team will reach out to you to investigate if there are any issues with your bar's knurling!

Pure satisfaction
Honestly words can’t describe how I feel when I step up to my Ohio Cerakote bar, that feeling like you’ve already lifted the bar and hit that new PR. When I use quality gear I feel strong and when I feel strong I push beyond goals into new territories, it looks good, feels good in the hand, lots of color options to personalize it and make it your own. Made from quality steel from right here in America, I mean could it get any better? I love this barbell! #RogueFittness #Rogueforlife

Great Quality
No complaints about product as advertised. Would be nice to have option to get it with the loaded sleeve made out of stainless and the bar Cerakoted. That wasn't available when I got mine...
