CERAKOTE OHIO BAR - SPECIAL PINK EDITION

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Rogue has introduced this limited edition Pink Cerakote version of our flagship Ohio Bar. Proceeds will be donated to the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research at Ohio State’s Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. Rogue is pleased to offer a Pink Cerakote version of the Women’s Bella Bar, as well.

At The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James), world-renowned experts tirelessly pursue a vision of a cancer-free world. The Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research is critical to that vision. By supporting research, drug development and innovative therapies, the fund, through philanthropic support, is transforming the way breast cancer is prevented, detected and treated.

Like the other colorways of our new Cerakote Ohio Bar, the Pink Special Edition utilizes a unique polymer-ceramic composite coating—popularized in the gun industry for its durability in thin applications. This particular design features a pink cerakote shaft, black cerakote sleeves, and a black Rogue logo on the center of the bar shaft.

Fully machined and assembled in Columbus, OH, all versions of the Ohio Bar continue to represent the highest level of precision engineering, with a 190,000 PSI tensile strength shaft, dual knurl marks, quality composite bushings, and a lifetime warranty against bending.* A barbell that has always delivered multi-purpose versatility and dependable performance now also offers athletes the chance to make a statement and raise funds for a worthy cause.

"Continue to fight. Continue to live." - Stefanie Spielman

CERAKOTE STRENGTH

This version of the Ohio Bar is distinct for its use of Cerakote, an advanced ceramic-based coating, originally established in the gun industry for its 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 here in pink with the Rogue logo branded on the center of the shaft in black.

2

190 KSI STEEL

The quality steel used in the Ohio Bar 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.

3

MACHINING & ASSEMBLY

Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio, with painstaking attention to detail. The knurling has been carefully refined over the years for a firm but non-abrasive grip (there is no center knurl). We also assemble this version of the Ohio Bar with special composite bushings—a self-lubricating material often found in hi-tech aerospace equipment and military vehicles. For intense, high-rep training, these bushings dramatically minimize friction to provide a reliable spin. The final result is a bar that produces normal “whip” during Oly weightlifting with enough rigidity 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.

Hard to see knurling
The bar looks cool and has great colors. The pink makes it hard to see the knurling, though.

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...

Love this bar, got cerakote to deal with the climate in my gym space. Has held up very well. Knurl is a little smoother than I’m used to but I don’t mind.

Well, it’s a bar I guess.
Starting out, the only reason I gave it 2 stars was because it does it’s job of holding plates. The Cerakote finish is absolute garbage. After putting on the plates and taking them for the first time the coating became significantly scratched and chipped. There is a significant cloud of cerakote dust that fills the air around the bar, and settles on the bar, the floor and walls around it. I reached out to rogue and was told this was absolutely normal, cerakote is not supposed to be resistant to abrasion. However I refused to believe that it should be this bad. Why? Because I have cerakote bars from other companies in my gym, none of them have behaved this way after a couple uses. I then reached out to cerakote to ask some questions. After exchanging a few emails an pictures I was told that my rogue bar probably had a poor application. However after the pictures were exchanged I was told the following… “ I noticed that the Cerakote looks pretty dry and chalky. This is a sign that when the coating was applied it was dry sprayed. When a Cerakote is dry sprayed it tremendously decreases the durability and adhesion.” I was told I should reach out to rogue by this kind cerakote rep, but I already had and was told this was normal behavior for their bar. Which makes me believe that this was not a poor application, but rather they do in dry sprayed for whatever reason they thought was best. Not a good look for a company that everyone tells me is the best. Will not be recommending to friend, family or my gym.
