Rogue 20KG Ohio Power Bar - Black Zinc

The Rogue 20KG Ohio Power Bar is fully machined and assembled in Columbus, OH, using 205K PSI tensile strength steel. Approved for competition by the International Powerlifting Federation, this 29MM diameter bar includes single powerlifting knurl marks and a center knurl, with the same deep, coarse (but not overly sharp) knurl pattern as our 45LB Ohio Power Bar. The 20KG bar does have a greater loadable sleeve length than the 45LB bar (16.875” vs. 16.25”). This is a result of the slightly smaller width of the collars.

One of the key factors that sets the 20KG Ohio Power Bar apart from other powerlifting barbells in the industry is its friction welded sleeves. A technique borrowed from the worlds of aviation and automotive manufacturing, the friction welding process creates a precision, forged-quality bond, resulting in superior strength and fatigue resistance, as well as a finer grain structure on the welded joint.

The 20KG Rogue Ohio Power Bar includes bronze bushings, a snap ring design, and a Black Zinc shaft with Bright Zinc sleeve finish.

Key Features of the Rogue 20KG Ohio Power Bar

  • 1205,000 PSI Steel

    The Ohio Power Bar’s 29MM diameter steel shaft boasts a tensile strength of 205,000 PSI, delivering superior rigidity and virtually zero whip/flex. Machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, the bar also features a snap-ring design and quality bronze bushings for a smooth, consistent feel. IPF approved for competition.

  • 2Aggressive Knurl

    The bar includes single powerlifting marks and a center knurl, each featuring a deep, coarse pattern that produces a reliable grip / stick without being sharp or abrasive. Perfecting this knurl pattern is both a science and an art. Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus on new Haas machines (built in the USA) and fine-tuned and personally tested by the Rogue team.

  • 3Friction Welded Sleeves

    A technique borrowed from the worlds of aviation and automotive manufacturing, the friction welding process creates a precision, forged-quality bond, resulting in superior strength and fatigue resistance, as well as a finer grain structure on the welded joint.

  • 4Use It With These Other Rogue Products

    Ohio Power Bar owners can use this barbell in conjunction with a broad range of other top caliber Rogue powerlifting products, from the Westside Bench and R-3 Power Rack to deadlift bar jacks, Wagon Wheel plates, and Calibrated Steel Plates.

  • 5Two Finish Options

    The 20KG version of the Ohio Power Bar is available in your choice of two quality finishes. The Zinc option (black shaft, bright sleeves) provides excellent corrosion resistance, while the new Stainless Steel variation (with Chrome sleeves) creates the look and natural feel of bare steel with less upkeep required.

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.

Rogue 20KG Ohio Power Bar - Black Zinc is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent barbell This is the first barbell I have ever owned, and I like it so much I am tempted to bring it with me when the gyms reopen! It is obviously well made, and although this shouldn’t matter, I kind of like that, with the black bar and silver sleeves, it looks like a serious piece of fitness equipment. I particularly like the deep knurl. Since I am temporarily lifiting in my living room I can’t use chalk, and the knurl gives the bar a very secure grip.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great.. but Well of course Rogue is known for excellent products. There is no doubt that this is going to be the only bar (for quite some time). My only disappointment was that the barbell sides were a little chipped off making me think it was from their graveyard sales. It's possible that due to the overwhelming sales these days, this one slipped through the cracks - but it does make me feel a little cheated on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad experience Bought this barbell for few days ago. The bar was damaged and scratched. I dont think it is okay for at new barbell. The scratches are in both sides. I really dont understand, why there are no quality control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Knurl & Grip As all gyms are closed due to COVID-19, I bought this bar alongside some bumper plates to start my home gym. It really is a multi-functional bar that looks & feels great! The knurl is quite aggressive without being sharp and the center knurl really makes a different for back squads.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Bar Great bar, but not combined with the Rogue squat stand (Monster lite squat stand). The bar is to small if it’s used with a Rogue squat stand. The plates almost touch the stand while using.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar Bought this bar for my home gym and it performs very well. Very solid construct with an aggressive but not hand ripping knurl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed This is by far the best bar that I’ve ever purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've got a Bar I am so happy to have been able to purchase a Bar during the Lockdown and really happy to have the Rogue Ohio Power Bar. The knurling is great on the hands, and feels so solid in the hands under weight. I am looking forward to being able to load it up with more weight in the future as Plates become available. Great product.
