2X QUIETER PERFORMANCE

Refined with even stricter tolerances, precision-machined bronze bushings fit tighter around the shaft, and improved internal sleeve tolerances dampen sound and eliminate unwanted movement, ensuring a smoother and more stable lift.

How It's Made
1

FRICTION WELDING

The collars of the sleeves are friction welded, creating the strongest sleeves in the industry. This bond is as strong as if machined from a single piece of steel, while saving on waste and cost. 

Rogue Work Hardening
2

Rogue Work Hardening

Our patented, proprietary process more than doubles the durability and lifespan of the barbell shaft compared to our competitors. 

State-of-the-art Gauging
3

State-of-the-art Gauging

We use gauging normally employed in the aerospace industry to ensure that every bar that makes it to a customer is exactly as designed.

Barbell Durability

RUST RESISTANCE

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.

BARBELL DURABILITY

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.

F SCALE™ APPLICATION

How a barbell is used will affect its durable lifespan and it's a key factor in determining what type of F Rating™ might be suitable for your gym's needs. This graph correlates the F Rating™ of a barbell with different types of usage in order to predict the durable lifespan. Using this data, we are able to make recommendations on what F Rating™ is appropriate for different training situations. With a rating of F10-R, the Ohio Bar is rated to last 20 years in a high volume CrossFit gym and will outlast a lifetime of lifting in an Olympic Weightlifting gym, a home gym or a Powerlifting gym.

BARBELL WEIGHT

20KG is the standard for most Powerlifting Federations, Men's Olympic Weightlifting and Men's CrossFit competitions.

Loading

BARBELL WHIP

The amount of springback provided by the bar that can be used by the lifter to increase the weight they can lift in dynamic movements.

TENSILE STRENGTH

Expressed in PSI, tensile strength measures the maximum weight a barbell can support before deforming. The 200K tensile strength falls within the optimal range of not bending under normal use, yet not been inflated to the point that it will shorten the life of the bar.

BARBELL KNURLING EXPLAINED

Our signature knurl, designed for multi-purpose use, provides a firm grip without being abrasive. This falls in the middle of the road on the knurl scale, striking a balance without being overly aggressive or passive.

Very approachable all around bar.
Lovely bar to use. I find the knurl possibly borders on a bit too passive with the Cerakote finish, and the black finish does present a bit more grey in person, but an overall pleasant bar to use.

Purchase the Cerakote Bar with Chrome Ends
I look for reviews on the Ohio bar and couldn’t decide which finish to get after a lot of research. I ended up getting the Cerakote Bar with the Chrome Ends, which I highly recommend stop thinking about it and just get this combination you will be extremely happy.

Great bar with below expectation collars.
Bought the Cerakote Bar with Proprietary Matte Black collars. Bar itself is great, quieter than my American Barbell Cerakote bar. The Matte black collars are not good. Borderline bad. Any plate (I have bumper plates) with a metal insert will wear them out, and its already wearing through to the metal underneath. I see scratches as I load/unload the bar. I'll stick with chrome collars in the future.

We appreciate your feedback on the Ohio Bar. The Proprietary Matte Black treatment hardens the sleeves, and the markings you are seeing can be wiped off with a rag. If you have further concerns about your sleeves, please do not hesitate to reach out.

My first barbell and it'll last my lifetime!
This is the first barbell I've ever owned and so far super happy with it. I got the bright green Cerakote finish and love it. I also bought the Rogue Flex Bumper Plates with it and they fit snugly on the bar ends. So far super happy with it!

This is a great bar
I couldn't be happier. The knurling is perfect. It's grippy without being so aggressive that it rips your hands. Just the right amount of bite. Shipped fast and packaging was great. If you're looking for an excellent bar from a quality company, you have found it
