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

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.

The Rogue Bar 2.0 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 223.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from NOT TYPICAL ROGUE QUALITY I purchased my 2nd Rogue Bar 2.0 a few months ago with the expectation of getting the same quality I have come to expect from Rogue products. I have purchased MANY thousands of dollars worth of Rogue equipment for my facilities (24 hour health club/CrossFit affiliate) and for my home gym and have rarely been disappointed. There are a lot of options out there, but the biggest selling point for me is consistency. So when I needed an additional bar for the facility I train athletes at (and personally use), I didn't even shop around. The Rogue 2.0 I purchased in 2016 has been my favorite all around bar, and has held up through major abuse. The spin was surprisingly good at this price point and is still very smooth. The Rogue 2.0 that I just received is not even close. The spin on this bar is typical of a bar you would receive free with a cheap weight set. Maybe this is normal of the 2.0 and I just got lucky with the first bar in 2016. But I cant recommend this product based on newest bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect Love this barbell. Very versatile. Only small gripe is the coating comes off pretty easily were knurl is, noticed after first use. But it’s lifting and that will eventually happen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Solid Bar I bought it right before Quarantine started and it's gotten a lot of use since! It's a great bar and I love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Bar for most people I’ve been using this for 2 months now and love it! Perfect for Olympic lifts. Only downside is how slick the middle of the shaft is. Heavy squats make it hard to not slip on your back. This to be expected of a bar without a center knurl which is why I’d recommend getting a power bar if not doing cleans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar Great bar, the knurling feels smooth an grippy at the same time, the spin improves over time, have a little patience. I bought this bar a month ago just before this whole corona stuff to start a small home gym, for powerlifting only I would go with the rogue ohio power bar, but as an allrounder the rogue bar 2.0 is a solid choice to make!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great General Barbell used in commercial gym 4+yrs We have been using our 6x Rogue 2.0 Bars in our commercial fitness center for 4+ years and we have been very happy with the purchase! Very passive knurl which is great for people of all backgrounds from the beginner to veteran lifter. We use our 2.0 Bars for general use to include: Bench, Deadlift, Overhead Press, Curls, Cleans, and Landmine movements. We lubricate our barbells with 3 in 1 oil once every 2 months and they still have great spin after 4+ years of use! Thanks again for a solid product Rogue!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All the equipment you need, the quality you expect Over the past few years I've purchased lots of equipment from Rogue for home gym purposes. Never once have I been disappointed with either the quality or performance of any of the gear. Customer service is great and the deliveries arrived as ordered. the problem today, however, is that the wait can be up to 3 weeks due to the COVID19 issue, so expect delays until this thing runs it's course. Also, due to the virus, a lot of equipment simply is not available, with the exception or less popular items. It is what it is, but not Rogue's fault by any means. I highly recommend this company to anyone interested i=n serious home gym equipment.
