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 172.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I have used plenty of barbells in gyms over the years. None have felt and looked as good as this barbell. It is expensive, but if you take care of it, it will last a very long time (or so I am told). Worth every penny to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Money well Spent The right bar makes a big difference. Money well spent. Plan to purchase a second bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tremendous Bar I’ve had the bar for about a month. I was hesitant to pay extra for the cerakote, but I’m glad I went for it. It has a really nice finish and it is tough as nails. I also like the added pop of color (I have orange). Rogue’s customer service was top notch as always.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Money well spent! I purchased this bar for myself for Christmas. (Yep I have no life.) It is an awesome bar, it’s smooth during power cleans. The knurling is perfect. With the cerakote, you don’t need chalk, unless your hands get moist throughout a workout. The color is great, keep up the good work Rogue!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really awesome bar! Purchased this bar about 2 months ago. Absolutely love it! I got the green one and the color is bright and consistent. Sturdy and the knurling is not too aggressive as well. My wife purchased a Pink Bella Cerakote bar and it is just as nice!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bar so far for CrossFit! I have been using this bar for almost a month. Looks and feels great! Perfect for the workouts and lifts we perform in our classes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Quality I got this bar in Black/Black cerakote. Haven’t had any issues so far and I’ve used this bar for everything including landmines and then finish has held up well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Look and Feel I owned the Ohio in Black Zinc; however, I decided to sell that bar in order to purchase the Cerakote finish. The impetus for this switch was purely cosmetic, and I am very satisfied with the aesthetics and performance of the Ohio Cerakote bar. The knurl feels nearly identical to the Black Zinc, but there's a nice "ceramic" style feel that, to me, is the best bar I've ever benched with. I also own Ohio Power Bars, but I use this bar for Flat & Incline Benching, Overhead Pressing, and Curling. An amazing bar--highly recommended.
