The Rogue Bar 2.0

This is the next generation of the 28.5MM Olympic bar that helped launch the revolution. Now fully machined and assembled at the Rogue factory in Columbus, Ohio, the Rogue Bar 2.0 represents the highest level of precision engineering with a wide range of new features—including stronger 190 PSI steel, durable composite bushings, and CNC-machined groove sleeves with customizable color bands, available here

Like the original flagship Rogue Bar, Version 2.0 still offers convenient dual knurl marks for both Olympic and powerlifting, with a black zinc coated shaft and bright zinc sleeves. The addition of a groove in the sleeve enables athletes and coaches to more easily identify and differentiate bars by changing out the bands. The bar comes standard with Rogue-branded bands, but you can swap them out with any of the additional color options available, or even use any custom, personalized band that matches the dimensions.

The Rogue Bar 2.0 is among the first in our arsenal to use composite bushings—a self-lubricating material often found in hi-tech aerospace equipment and military vehicles. For intense, high-rep training, these bushings dramatically minimize friction to both provide a reliable spin and help extend the shelf life of the bar itself.

The Rogue Bar helped us cement our reputation at the CrossFit Games and beyond, and we believe the Rogue Bar 2.0 is a worthy successor to that mantle.

*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 Rogue Bar 2.0 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 121.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beauty! I was making do with a lesser bar for the last few years and finally decided to upgrade to this bar. As you notice in my pics I kind of have the Rogue theme going and that is for good reason. Of the seven or so grand worth of equipment I've purchased in the last two years I've never been let down by the quality. This bar continues that trend and I love everything about it. Grip is spot on without being overly aggressive, and the spin is great for a bushing bar. The rogue bands are a nice touch too. Unless you need the super spin of a bearings bar you should highly consider this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my faves! I have had the Rogue 2.0 bar for around half a year now and feel like I can give an honest review. I primarily do powerlifting exercises with some Oly stuff, so I wanted a solid all round bar that I could use for everything. I have really beat on this bar: heavy cleans, deadlifts, squats, presses.....and it is arrow straight, the bearings spin true and smooth and the knurling is a great balance between the power bar and my Oly bar. Compared to a true Oly bar, it is stiff, but that isn't a bad thing and it really does feel great for any big lift. If you are looking for a great all round bar that you can beat up day after day, there is no better value than the 2.0

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Still! Two years now as my garage gym workhorse at home. It has withstood the Florida humidity with no visible rust. I keep it clean and lubricated. The black zinc has worn a little, but not as bad as I have read on previous reviews. Recommend highly for an all around home gym barbell. Great value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remove, Clean and Lube the Collars for 2X the Spin In addition to my review, once I watched the Rouge video on their U-tube page and saw how easy it is to remove the sleeves I cleaned the bar and the inside of the bearings with WD40 and lubed with a light oil and they are now have 2X better spin then when they were new. They should have been this way from the start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing bar! I bought this bar on Matte Black Friday 2015. The all black finish caught my eye. It really is a beautiful bar. It has performed amazingly this year. It spins really well and has great knurling that is grippy, but doesn't destroy your hands. I will probably pick up another one during MBF 2016.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fragile Finish Bought this bar a month ago to replace the cheap bar I bought for training. Bearings spin beautifully with oly lifts, sleeves had some grime in the channels as if it was loaded with something dirty on it but removable with some effort, and the finish of the black oxide was pristine. After one use, metal on metal with the black oxide deemed not forgiving. My metal cups, black finished as well, is able to scratch off the black oxide finish of the bar exposing the silver undercoating merely by turning the bar to acquire a good grip during a bench press. My cheap bar, black finished as well, acquired some scratches but the finished persisted the abuse. Hit some depression with the first use but I guess in this case rogue products only work well with each other. Cloth between my cups and the bar will have to suffice until I can get a power rack with plastic lined j cups. I do not plan on babying this bar to truly test the endurance/rigidity quality that rogue products are so known for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First impressions I just received my Rogue 2.0. I am 5 months into Starting Strength and of all things I bought to start my garage gym, a quality bar was not one of them. I found a few bars through Craigslist that seemed to work for the time being. Once I started power cleans, I knew it was time to start shopping. As my hands are unbelievably small, I wanted something I could easily wrap my hands around. Scouring forums, this site, and reading reviews, I was torn between the Rogue 2.0, Ohio Bar, and the B&R 2.0. The B&R I believe was a 29mm shaft and I think that is what sealed my decision with the Rogue 2.0. My lifts are all in the mid to high 200's so I know this bar will work for a while until I progress. I have not used the bar yet--so this is only a first impression review. The bar was shipped in an post-apocalyptic proof cylindrical-cardboard housing. The bar was free from blemishes and the collars spin very well. My other two bars do not spin--they only allow me to rotate them with force. The knurl is smooth but catchy, and I can definitely feel the difference when holding onto the bar compared to my other two. I will update once this I am able to get this bar under some good use. In end, buy this bar.
