The Rogue Bar

The Barbell That Launched a Revolution.

The Rogue Bar was one of the original products we built our reputation on, and it remains a proud centerpiece of the Rogue brand.

Used in the past four CrossFit Games, this weightlifting bar features Rogue’s trademark, dual knurl marks for both Olympic and powerlifting, a hybrid knurling pattern, and no center knurl.

The polished shaft of The Rogue Bar is finished with a unique combination of bright zinc and black zinc coatings, giving it a classic, old school look and feel. Additional refinements include high quality bronze bushings for a consistent spin and a snap ring sleeve design guaranteed to keep the sleeves in place for the life of the bar. The Rogue Bar has a moderate amount of whip for use in weightlifting movements, and is built strong enough to come with a lifetime warranty against bending.

To get a better sense of what sets a quality, American-made barbell apart from the competition, check out some of the recent Rogue Bar reviews shared by customers under the “Reviews” tab on this page.

**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. Rogue has a replacement rate of less than 0.0002 on bars. We have found that most problems with bars we replace are related to abusive use rather than manufacturing or materials issues.


Good bar. Spin is not so good.

Review by KP
Got this bar from the 2013 Crossfit Games. It probably never got used (you can see the chalk marks on all the used ones, and my bar was spotless). I use it in my crossfit box and share it with all the members so it gets tons of use. It's a great bar for most general uses. I like the look, feel, and knurling. One downside is the spin. If I spin them as hard as I can, it only spins for 1-2 revolutions on its own. Even the old Rogue Beater bars we have at the gym have better spin.

First olympic bar I've owned- solid construction. Feels much better than the bars at the local gym. I workout with bare hands and even with sweat I still have solid grip on the bar. Been using it almost everyday for almost 6 months.

Good Bar for lifting

Review by Mark
I love my Rogue bar. Only issue I have had is the knurl is wearing down on the bar from when I rack it on the squat rack. Knurl is not too aggressive and is just right. The spin is ok. I have had it for almost a year and will last for many more.

Takes a Beating

Review by Mulligan
I bought my Rogue Bar over a year ago, and I only have iron plates so I was concerned about doing oly lifts. I have dropped the bar from overhead (I try not to, but it happens) and the bar is still straight as an arrow, and the collars are still solid. I have thrown everything at this bar and it still holds true. I would by this bar over and over again!

Great bar!

Review by Jack H.
This bar was a replacement for an old no name bar I had been using. I didn't expect much difference. Boy, was I surprised. Head and shoulders above the old bar I was using, and it looks great!

Get this bar!

Review by PB
As a previous Rogue hater I can say that this bar was all I needed to be converted to a Rogue addict.

QUALITY. Period. In everything they produce themselves.

You will NOT find a better me, I've looked at and tried them all.

Excellent Bar

Review by Matt O.
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.
