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.

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.

Fast Rogue Shipping
Orders placed by 3PM ship the same day. The Rogue Shipping System allows you to track your order from the time you place it to the time it hits your door. Order today, track today.

*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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful bar Bought this barbell once I realized going back to my gym this year wasn’t plausible. It was hard to finally get it but worth every penny! Absolutely love it. All I would say t rogue and their supplier is, please please please need the plates! I have none at all and everyone else in the market wants me to pay an arm and a leg for just one plate! Please restock!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Choice For My Quarantine Garage Gym The stainless Ohio bar is the ultimate daily driver for both myself, and prominent YouTubers such as Brandon Campbell Diamond/Fitness. It’s rust resistant quality is, in my opinion, why it’s the most useful variant of this bar. The knurling is generous in comparison to the lower model straight bars I’ve dealt with too, such as Promaxima. The price may be steep, but then again it’s extremely competitive if you were to compare this bar to others that are similar to it. Rogue’s shipping was prompt, and the bar came in perfect condition (it was wrapped excellently). Be prepared to pull great too right from the get go, it may not have the length of the Texas bar, but it certainly can be preformed with all three lifts no issues whatsoever. Buy it, you’ll thank me-Roman

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A barbell should be an investment. The uncompromised quality of a Rogue barbell coupled with a stainless shaft. This is a barbell that will last a lifetime. A tool that will pay for itself 100 times over. Thank you Rogue

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never really thought about bar quality before Bought about 2 months ago with COVID shutting down my local Y. Very impressed with quality and found it has a lot better grip than the one I used at the local gym. My friend got a cheap one at Dicks Sporting Goods at the same time and now that he has used this one he is planning on up grading. Would defiantly recommend. Unwrapping the shipping container was a lot easier after I watched a youtube video. FYI

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great!!!! Received the bar about a month ago and its my favorite bar i have ever used. Has been absolutely perfect. It has held over 400 pounds with no problem. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar I received this bar almost 2 months ago. The cerakote seems like it’s going to hold up to the abuse that bars go through. This was the only bar available during this time. It has decent whip for when you need it but isn’t so crazy that it hurts lifts like bench and deadlifts. I do look forward to grabbing the cerakote power bar but this does the job too. Would buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built for hardcore use I've had the black-on-black Ohio bar for over a month and this thing is amazing! built for hardcore use and abuse, it is one of the highest quality barbells I've used (and i've used A LOT of them). Even sliding plates on and iff, no issues with abrasion or scratching other than the expected stuff you will get no matter what. I'll buy a couple more of these in different colors once they open up again!
