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 68.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied Just wow. Very pleased with qualities of this bar. Build quality is excellent, everything is precise (think Swiss watch), feels very solid in your hands, the bar is just beautiful. Rogue branded rubber bands are a nice touch and can be worn on your wrist as well. Whip and spin are great, knurl has been slightly sharper than I was expecting but presents no issue what-so-ever, just needs some getting used to. The sleeves are grooved so when you load the bar it makes a WHUIIIII sound, so forget about your night ninja lifting!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality versatile bar I love rogue as a company and have been pleased with their craftsmanship thus far. I use my bar mainly for Olympic lifts at home but sometimes it gets work as a bench/squat bar as well. The bar performs wonderfully and is very durable. Only reason I didn't give five stars was because my bar arrived with cosmetic damage that appears to be in the machining process not shipping. It has a medium depth scratch wrapping spirally down the length of the bar, my guess would be from a loose or misaligned tooling on the lathe process. Customer service offered to replace and was very easy to deal with, but at that point I was not willing to deal with the hassle and just put it to use immediately.

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 Great barbell Ive been using this bar for about 3 months now, so i though it would be time for a good review. When i received the bar i was impressed with the feel of it, it has great spin, great finish, the knurling could be a tiny bit more aggressive. Its a little longer ( 1.5~ in) than my ivanko obx 20kg which I really like. I use it primarily for benching and OHP. The bar has a pretty strong whip. It starts flexing substantially when loaded with 365lbs+. Ive have many bars in my collection and to be honest this is a great bar overall. I wish it had center knurling so I can squat with it. Definitely would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm ruined for other bars now I bought this on the recommendation of multiple folks on Rip's forum, even though I figured there couldn't be too much difference between this and the standard cheap bars I'd encountered at multiple gyms. Oh, how wrong I was. I would have paid twice the cost for something of this impressive quality. The knurling, the spin, the fit with the bumpers - everything that folks have said in previous reviews is true, and more directly, what they said is *important.* It makes a difference that these things are so much better. I can feel it when I lift. I cannot imagine going back to cheap bars after being exposed to this. Thanks and kudos for creating such a great piece of work, guys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I have used many bars throughout the years and I can't express enough how great this one is. The knurl is unlike any I've ever felt before and creates a very strong grip without being sharp at all. I researched bars for a few months before purchasing and I decided on this one even though it was a little outside what I wanted to spend. Definitely worth it. You may be thinking that you can get away with a 100-200 dollar bar for now, but I would highly advise against it. Those will undoubtedly bend, causing serious problems with heavy cleans/snatches/deadlifts and the sleeves will begin to rotate less as well. If you're on the fence, spend a little more to get this one and I promise you will enjoy for the rest of your life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A comparison I have been lifting for more than a decade. I am accustomed to using Texas Power Bars. I recently set up a garage gym form myself and 2 training partners. I bought these bars because I am transitioning from powerlifting to CrossFit. At first these bars felt very different in my hands. The knurl was not as sharp at the TPB which I didnt like at first but have come to love it. This bar has a lot more give than a TBR so its taking some getting used with it bouncing a bit. All in all I really enjoy this bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bar Do yourself a favor and spend the extra money on a good bar -- this bar to be exact. You get what you pay for and I have found this bar to be extremely reliable and tough. The knurling pattern is great for every type of lift. Additionally, the bar spins smoothly even with heavy weight. I love the black on silver coloring of this bar, and has yet to show signs of any fading after half a year of heavy use. All-in-all, I will probably buy another one of these when the time is right.
