Key Features of This Ohio Bar:

  • 1New 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.

  • 2Machining

    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.

  • 3Fit 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.

  • 4Assembly

    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.

  • 5Performance

    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.

  • 6Fast Rogue Shipping

    Rogue prides itself on fast, professional shipping. If your bar is ordered by 3PM EST Monday-Friday, it will ship same day. Your bar will be packaged safely and ship fast. You can follow the progress of your order using the Rogue Shipping Tracker.

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 - Black Zinc is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 928.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome investment! So glad we decided to finally pull the trigger on putting together our home gym. We chose to spend the extra money to buy all Rogue gear (Monster Light Rack, bumper plates, Kettle Bells, and incline bench). We are thrilled with the quality and everyone in our family (wife and four teenagers) love having access to a professional quality gym in our basement. The fact that we were able to customize the color of the rack and bar to match our alma matter's colors made it just that much sweeter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite bar It is my favorite bar I have. It not only looks good, it feels. I also like the sound when dropped from a lift. I do outdoor training in a humid environment and purchased this as the coating helps keep the bar from rusting. The grip is passive and seem soft. For general training it's enough to get the job done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This bar will last Don't let the rating fool you. I would give it a 4.5. It is a great bar overall. The grip feels good without tearing in your hands. It's incredibly rust resistant. I purchased the bar because I'm doing outdoor training in an environment that is frequently humid so I needed a bar that can last. The downfall of the bar is if you are wearing a tank or shirtless and you are sweating, the bar will slip. That's why I didn't give it 4 stars. If you take the time to chalk your shoulders and chest if you are doing front squats or back squats then you should be good. If you wear a shirt then you don't have to worry about it #sunsoutgunsout.
