What Sets the Cerakote Finish Ohio Bar Apart:

  • 1Cerakote Strength + Custom Colors

    This version of the Ohio Bar is distinct for its use of an advanced ceramic-based coating, originally established in the gun industry for its remarkable durability in thin applications. This unique finish can deliver superb abrasion/wear/corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc—and it’s available to order in a range of exclusive colors, with the Rogue logo branded on the center of the shaft. See the menu for current color combination options.

  • 2190,000 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.

  • 3Machining & Assembly

    Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio, with painstaking attention to detail. The knurling has been carefully refined over the years, as well, for a firm but non-abrasive grip (there is no center knurl). We assemble the Ohio Bar with a snap ring design and quality composite bushings, which act as bearing surfaces between the bar sleeve and bar shaft, producing normal “whip” during Oly weightlifting but enough stiffness to hold for heavy powerlifting.

Please Note: Cerakote has an excellent resistance to corrosion, but metal-to-metal contact, particular on the sleeves, can still cause wear over time. For the best long term results, some cleaning and maintenance may be required. See our Ohio Bar Care Page for more info.

*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.

The Ohio Bar - Cerakote is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 192.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you could expect when you buy rogue I've looked at Rogue products in the past, but been deterred by the price. They always look excellent, but I just could get myself to pony up the cash. I really enjoy deadlifting and wanted to get a proper bar for it without really breaking the bank. The bar arrived in an extremely reinforced tube that protected it from any potential damage. The Cerakote looks great and feels great too. The knurling results in good grip and does not tear your hands. This bar also has a nice whip. If you can spend the money, the Cerakote Ohio bar is a great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar! I have been very happy with the craftsmanship of the bar. I have been using it daily for squatting, deadlifting, pressing, power cleans, etc. I find it helpful to use the same bar daily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great barbell I purchased the Ohio bar cereakote bar. black with black Sleeves. I’m very happy with it. Was shipped nice an secure. The Knute is perfect. Not to aggressive but plenty of grip. I would recommend getting the Crome sleeves tho. The sleeves are already showing blemishes on the black sleeves.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the bar started to rust immediately I purchased a black oxide Ohio Bar and it was delivered less than a month ago. Functionally the bar has a great feel, good spin, and good whip. I love using it. That said, it is already showing rust. The black oxide coating is the least rust resistant according to Rogue support. Be aware that the cool look it has is extremely short lived and then you need to do weekly maintenance on it. I had it a month and had used it maybe five times before I felt and saw the rust spots. I still would recommend this bar I would just recommend going with the less expensive zinc coating or with one of the more expensive coatings. The ohio bar is going to work awesomely but be super ugly after a few years and require LOTS of maintenance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never a doubt! I’ve been using Rogue equipment for years at my CF gym. It was time to up grade my home gym. Ordered the Ohio Bar, blue and black Cerakote, a kids bar bell for my son, and 260lbs of bumper plates. I couldn’t be more pleased !
