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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Black on Black I received mr Rogue 2.0 Black on Black bar 2 weeks ago now. It was worth the wait. PR'd right out the box. This bar is awesome. Looks even better. Another amazing product from Rogue. Only negative thing I can say about it is this. I recieved in amazing time but the packaging was missing an end cap. I pulled it out and and the bar end was fairly scratched up. Knurling was fine. I sent pics to Rogue they assured me the scratches didn't ruin the performance of the bar. They were right. Rogue customer service is spot on, because of the damage they hooked me up w/ a G card. You have to love these guys all about customer satisfaction. All I can say is keep up the good work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality/value I've had my bar for 7 months now and I'm pleased. I have no regrets. I use this for lifting in my garage when I can't get to the box. Quality - excellent. Finish - excellent. Knurling - aggressive - I'm not worried about the bar slipping at all. Loudness upon drop - I expected it to make noise (are there bars that make no noise when they hit the ground? I've yet to see one.) As to the debate about spin - I have no clue. The bar uses bushings versus bearings. So I suppose if you are extremely worried about spin being an issue, then get a bar with bearings. If you ask me, this bar will do whatever you ask.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality bar! I've owned this bar for ~2 years. The knurling is a bit passive but as soon as you throw some chalk on your hands it sticks to your hands like glue. The whole bar has held up pretty well, but the black zinc has faded to bare steel where I grip the bar for cleans and snatches, therefore causing a bit of surface rust. Just clean the bar with 3 in 1 oil and you should be good. I mainly leave my bar outdoors and it still looks new, except for where it's faded. Overall good bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knurling is fantastic! Great bar, the knurling is the best and with chalk even better, it's like fine grit sandpaper. It was a hard choice between the Chan bar and the Rogue 2.0. I was worried about the bar slipping during back squats due to not having a center knurl on the Rogue 2.0 but I didn't want the larger spacing between the knurling on the Chan bar. So I basically chose what feature was most important to me and the Rogue 2.0 won. Having the option to add a center knurl would be ideal on this bar, maybe Rogue will offer this in the future. Overall its a solid purchase and I am very happy with this bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Complete Satisfaction This is a highest quality bar I've experienced at this price - ever. Quality in terms of bar performance from the overall feel when lifting, the smooth bushings, and knurl. The black zinc finish on this bar is the nicest I've ever seen. Solid dark black. The kind of purchase that makes me feel fortunate to own it. Being able to add a wristband to customize makes the smile on my face even bigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now a Loyal Customer! This is the 4th bar that I have owned and it is by far the best bar that I have ever worked out with! That's probably due to the fact that it is the first Rogue bar that I have owned! I cannot say enough about the quality of their products or the integrity of their business. I purchased the black on black on a few days after Thanksgiving and found that it had been damaged while in transit. This was not Rogue's fault and I would not have been wronged by them if they had told me to take it up with UPS. However, my granddad use to tell me of a day when companies stuck to their product and their integrity was worth more than a dollar sign! Rogue Fitness is that company! They put a new bar in the mail and allowed me to send my old one back in the box free of shipping. Thank you Rogue for providing American jobs, offering exceptional customer service and for manufacturing a product that is built to last!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bar I have owned and worked with quite a few bars over the years so I was skeptical about another all around bar. When rogue went all black zinc I decided to pick one up and I couldn't be happier. This bar is awesome. Looks great, knurl is perfect, and the spin is the best I've seen. While spinning an empty sleeve, this bar has better spin than any other bushing bar I've used, including Pendlay HD, Ohio Bar, and the Rogue 1.0. I was worried that the composite bushings would hurt the spin, and I was dead wrong. These composite bushings spin better than any bar I've used and are much quieter when dropped. I compared to several other bars and the rogue 2.0 is by far the quietest. This bar is awesome. I would not hesitate to buy another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Someone's Been Good This Year I got my bar a couple of days ago. I purchased it on slight sale with free shipping during Rogue's matte Friday sale. I opened it today to inspect and it looks awesome. It's black on black and the quality is evident. This is the first real bar I bought for my garage gym and I can't wait to start using it. Alas, my wife is making me wait until Christmas before I can, but at least I feel like an excited kid again waiting in anticipation for the big day!
