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.

Note: The Rogue Bar 2.0 comes standard with Black / White Silicone Bracelets, so additional Rogue Silicone Bracelets that are purchased must be replaced on the barbell manually

*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.

The Rogue Bar 2.0 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 204.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My do anything Bar I've been using this bar for about a year now, I use it for everything but benching and squating. This bar has great knurling and collars rotate smoothly. The only minor thing is the zinc finish is starting to wear off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bang for the Buck Love it. Same mechanical specs as the Ohio bar just less finish options. Spins great, knurling is perfectly grippy but not abrasive. Use it for my home gym doing Crossfit/ Weightlifting. Would highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar Recently received this bar to replace one I've been using for 20 years in my home gym. What a difference. The bar has an excellent feel and balance. Knurl could be a bit more aggressive but that's just a personal preference. This really is a perfect all around bar for your home gym. Really good looking bar as well. super fast delivery. Whole experience...A+.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full review of the Rogue Bar 2.0 Purchased this bar slightly over a month ago for 265, and 20 shipping. Shipping was fast and affordable. The bar is of extremely good quality and finishing. As an avid gym goer and general fitness enthusiast I rate this bar very highly to anyone looking for some new equipment. The first day the bar was is my home gym, I deadlifted over 500 pounds to feel out the bend in the bar and to test it's knurling sensitivity. EXCELLENT. The bar felt amazing in my hands as well as exceeding in other intense exercises. Feels absolutely fantastic in the clean and jerk. Highly recommend this bar! My one minor complaint was the bar came with the wrong collar ring color. Ordered the yellow ring finish and it arrived black

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value barbell Got the bar around a month ago to home usage during summertime. My gym has had the same ones. At the gym the black zinc wears away pretty quickly have not noticed the same issue yet at home. Does the job perfectly. And in my opinion better value for moneyvthan the OhioBar which is basically the same.
