The Ohio Bar - Stainless Steel

The stainless steel version of our 20KG Rogue Ohio Bar is machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, and features a 200,000 PSI tensile strength shaft with an exclusive Rogue knurl pattern that’s 100% in its original, machined form for an unmatched feel.

Along with the firm but non-abrasive grip, the Stainless Steel Ohio Bar’s dual knurl marks optimize it for both Olympic lifts and Powerlifting—with the quality US steel and precision bronze bushings ensuring a smooth, consistent spin + a unique balance of whip and rigidity.

Like all of our bars bearing the “Ohio” name, we think this design represents more than just the Rogue brand. It’s a testament to where we work, who we are, and the pride we feel in making the best high-performance barbells in the industry.

Note on Stainless Steel: Barbells made from raw steel are not plated and therefore marks from the machining process may be visible.

Key Features of This Ohio Bar:

  • 1200,000 PSI Steel

    This high tensile strength steel is manufactured in the USA 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, allowing for a very smooth finish.

  • 2Machining

    Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio. A great deal of pride is built into each bar, as the knurling process is an art. We spent months working on the knurl we believe to be the best for the Ohio Bar, and we test our knurling more like a beer tasting process than an exact measurement, always taking look and feel into account.

  • 3The Look & Feel of Stainless Steel

    With no plating, the knurl on the Stainless Steel Ohio Bar is left exactly how we machined it, providing a great feel that cannot be achieved with other finishes. It’s similar to the knurl feel from a bare steel shaft, but with better corrosion resistance. The combination of a stainless steel shaft with either stainless or chrome sleeves also creates a sharp look with few equals. Please Note: Rogue recommends using a synthetic bristle brush, NOT a steel brush, to clean a stainless steel shaft. Steel on steel can cause rusting over time. See more tips here: Bar Care & Maintenance.

  • 4Assembly

    Each bar features a robust snap-ring sleeve assembly and high-quality bronze bushings. These bushings act as bearing surfaces between the sleeves and shaft for a consistently smooth feel.

  • 5Performance

    The multi-purpose Ohio Bar will have normal “whip” during Olympic weightlifting and enough stiffness to hold for heavy Powerlifting. The steel in this bar is proven as an excellent choice for weightlifters.

  • 6Fast Rogue Shipping

    Rogue prides itself on fast, professional shipping. If your bar is ordered by 3PM EST Monday-Friday, it will ship same day. Your bar will be packaged safely and ship fast. You can follow the progress of your order using the Rogue Shipping Tracker.

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.

*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.

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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bar, needs SS Sleeves I've been using this bar for about 1 year now. Overall impressions are great. Bar is very comfortable. Diameter is good. Whip is good for. Knurling is the best i've felt. The reason for 4 and not 5 stars - it has chrome sleeves. Why have a stainless bar with chrome sleeves. Rogue take note - full stainless version please.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The goldstandard with minor flaws I bought this bar to have an alternative for powerlifting, crosslifting and general purpose next to my eleiko. I bought the stainless steel version due to it´s amazing corrosion resistance and legendary knurling. so what did i get? First of all the packaging was great - way better than the eleiko packaging. There is almost no way the bar can be damaged during transportation! It has little cushions underneath the endcaps and is very well packed. There were also some stickers included which is a nice little gimmick. The bar itself has a very nice appearance. The only downside was that it came with some discoloring at the sleeves due to manufacturing process and friction welding i guess. One sleeve also had some axial play in it due to tolerances. Besides this minor flaws it is an absolutely outstanding bar! Considering the pricetag i could hardely imaging getting a better bang for your buck! What surprised me was the knurling. This thing is sharp !!! Coming from training with an swedish competitor for mainly olylifts, i would have thought that a general puprose bar is going to be more moderate - this bar is anything than that! For what i use the bar for it is absolutely great. There is no way to lose your grip - you would rather lose your skin. On the other hand i wouldn´t recommend the knurling for high volume training in crossfit or olylifting. It is going to destroy your hand! I guess this comes from the fact that this bar has no additional coating and therefore has this harsh knurling. Knowing all this and considering the puproses you would use this for i can absolutely recommend this barbell!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy with this Bar Awesome bar! knurling is impeccable. not too coarse but very grippy at the same time. Still waiting on some plates which are on the way and I can't wait. Love the diameter and spacing of lines for hand placement. Collars and plates fit perfect and are also very well made. I've done a lot of homework on bars and plates and I think it is absolutely the best bang for your buck. Worth every penny.
