The New Standard

From the 190,000 PSI steel to the distinctive dual knurl marks and over a dozen different cerakote options, every detail of the Ohio Bar is held to the absolute highest standard.

Custom Build-a-Bar Options with the ZEUS Ohio Bar

  • 1Shaft Color - Cerakote

    There are more than a dozen Cerakote color finishes to choose from with the Ohio Bar, so odds are good there’s a match for your room, favorite team, etc. Cerakote is 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 offers far greater versatility in design, as well.

  • 2Sleeve Finish

    Choose between classic Chrome or Black Cerakote. Please Note: If you want custom text on your sleeve collars, you’ll need to select the Cerakote option, as text cannot be added over chrome.

  • 3Custom Color Bushings

    The Ohio Bar is available with your choice of bronze or composite bushings. The composite bushings can additionally be selected in either black or red.

  • 4Custom Logos and Text on Shaft

    Once you’ve selected your preferred Cerakote color finish for the Ohio Bar shaft, you can take the extra step of adding a personalized image and/or text to the center of the shaft. Logos can be conveniently uploaded via the dropdown menu, and customers can quickly select the font style and color of any text before typing a name, slogan, etc. into the provided text box.

  • 5Text on Sleeve Collars

    Our custom text tool can be used for adding content to your bar’s sleeve collars, as well (only on Cerakote; text CANNOT be added on Chrome sleeves). Select your preferred font style and color, then type a name, slogan, etc., into the provided text box.

  • 6Fast Rogue Shipping

    While unique customization orders may require more time than a standard Ohio Bar, we still move quickly. You can follow the progress of your order using the Rogue Shipping Tracker.

The ZEUS Custom Ohio Bar gives gym owners and everyday athletes unprecedented control over the look of their barbells, from the color of the shaft, sleeves and bushings to unique custom logos and lettering. It’s part of Rogue’s groundbreaking ZEUS project; using today’s advanced technology to create a simple, truly individualized gym outfitting experience.

The core functional features of the ZEUS Bella Bar are the same as our standard Cerakote Ohio Bar,including a 190,000 PSI steel shaft, quality bushings, dual knurl marks, and our Rogue Work Hardening (RWH™) treatment—which combines with the Cerakote finish to give the bar an elite F-Scale durability rating of F8-R. From there, customers can “make it their own” by using our drop-down customization menu. Whether you want to match a bar to a team’s colors or just add a unique design, name, or slogan, we’ll build and customize your Ohio Bar right here in Columbus and ensure it’s a genuine one-of-a-kind from end to end.

IMPORTANT: All custom sales are final and cannot be returned. In addition to your transit time, please allow 3-5 business days to assemble your Ohio Bar.

  • Lifetime Warranty Against Bending*

Whichever coating you choose, Rogue has provided some helpful tips for long term Bar Care & Maintenance.

*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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bar! The Ohio Bar is an awesome barbell! I've been using it for about a month now and it is just as described and as I expected. Truly one of the best bars on the market. The custom Cerakote finish looks great as well. Rogue's commitment to quality control and customer service is clearly evident in their products. Their order tracking feature is one of the best I have ever seen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Bar! Got tired of dealing with gym bars that didnt spin or hung up with heavy weight so I started looking at different companies, bearing vs. bushings, customization, and price. Finally settled on this but I wanted to make a statement. The phrase "Whatever it Takes" comes from my old unit 1st Battalion, 4th Marines and reminds me to HTFU and do the work whenever I look at it. The spin is so impeccable and smooth, it's a game changer. I matched my squat clean PR the first time using this because I could actually count on the bar to do what it's supposed to do and NOT jerk me around. Ordered it on a Saturday and had it in hand by the next Friday. Stupid fast production and shipping. Great Job, Rogue!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing After years of debating on getting A personal bar I did it! And so stoked I did. The sound of putting weight on this bar is what drives me and the feel of the smooth bar sleeves is what keeps my strength gains on the rise. The bar moves so smoothly. Rogue Bang N Clanger for life!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What it was missing I bought the Zeus Ohio bar. It didn't come with the image/symbol. Thought it looked cool because I like Greek god mythology, but It came simle without it. That's why I bought it 40-50%

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This bar impessed all my friends! This bar is very well put together and I'm looking forward to using it for years to come.
