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.

*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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My everything bar Thanks to this bars perfect knurling, buttery smooth collar rotation and springy but not too aggressive whip, its now the only bar i use. As for earlier reports of the color bleeding or being easily damaged i ordered the red cerakote and it still looks like day 1. (and im very rough on equipment.) If you need a great all around bar that looks great you cant go wrong with the Ohio bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Search no further! So I've had this bar for officially a year now and I would like to share my experience with it. I workout in my garage almost 7x/week; olympic lifts, squats, deadlifts, presses and yes a lot of WODs which involve dropping from shoulders, overhead and waist level. This bar has good whip, but not too much for when you go really heavy on those deadlifts and squats. The knurling is fantastic; if you're worried about ripping your hands, you're not lifting enough... wrap your thumbs in that hook grip! The bronze bushings are exceptional- I still have a very smooth and fast turn over with my snatches and cleans after 1 year of daily abuse. The collars have some descent wear and tear, as well as part of the knurling which are still in amazing shape though. Lets be honest, you shouldn't be concerned with the cosmetics of the bar if you plan on dragging this puppy through the swamp with you.. Very glad I purchased this bar after MONTHS of research between other websites and Chinese bars. Yes you'll pay a little more for this, but a barbell isn't something you should trying to be bargaining with as it is the backbone of your workouts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome BAR I bought this bar a month ago and don't know how I ever lifted without it.. the spin on cleans is unreal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just do it No complaints. Great bar. The bar becomes your best friend once you put 225+ on it. Awesome feedback, spin and whip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Bought a red cerakote bar that was used at the games. I spent the last few years training on non-rouge bars and I cant believe how much of an upgrade it is, the coating of the bar feels great in my hands (better than other rouge bars, but maybe its just in my head), and it spins well, I love it. The only negative I've noticed is that the front of my shorts turned red after a high volume/heavy clean day (first day I got it). 99% of the red came out after washing- its not really noticeable to anyone but me, but its still annoying. Hopefully this is just because the bar is still pretty new, but Id recommend wearing black/dark shorts when using it just in case... that said the red is awesome and Id buy another without thinking twice about it
