Product Description

This version of Rogue’s 28MM Training Bar features a stainless steel shaft and our new Proprietary Matte Black sleeve finish.  Many athletes favor stainless steel as a way to get the “natural” feel of the knurl–similar to a bare steel bar but with better corrosion resistance. The PM Black finish also greatly improves the long-term corrosion resistance and color endurance of the Training Bar’s sleeves, as it effectively transforms the surface of the steel rather than coating it.

Rogue 28MM Training Bar - Stainless / Proprietary matte Black

This version of Rogue’s 28MM Training Bar features a stainless steel shaft and our new Proprietary Matte Black sleeve finish.  Many athletes favor stainless steel as a way to get the “natural” feel of the knurl–similar to a bare steel bar but with better corrosion resistance. The PM Black finish also greatly improves the long-term corrosion resistance and color endurance of the Training Bar’s sleeves, as it effectively transforms the surface of the steel rather than coating it.

Each of these 20KG barbells is fully machined and assembled at the Rogue factory in Columbus, Ohio, utilizing the uniform knurl pattern of our Olympic WL Bar and the bronze bushings of the Rogue Ohio Bar. The result is a more cost-efficient, intermediate bar for athletes who still want the look and feel of a competition-ready Olympic barbell.

The quality U.S. steel used in the Stainless 28MM Training Bar meets a minimum tensile strength of 200,000 PSI, and each shaft is individually tested for straightness to within 0.015” (0.38MM). Single Olympic knurl marks are included (no center knurl).

Note on Stainless Steel: Barbells made from raw steel are not plated and therefore marks from the machining process may be visible. Stainless steel shafts will show CNC processing marks. These are cosmetic and will not impact the barbell's performance.

Key Features of the Stainless 28MM Training Bar:

1

The Look & Feel of Stainless Steel

With no plating, the knurl on the Stainless Steel Ohio Bar is left exactly how we machined it, providing a great feel that cannot be achieved with other finishes. It’s similar to the knurl feel from a bare steel shaft, but with better corrosion resistance. The stainless steel we use owes its heritage to the Rogue Elephant Bar. It was chosen because it is especially resistant to becoming bent with use.  Please Note: Rogue recommends using a synthetic bristle brush, NOT a steel brush, to clean a stainless steel shaft. Steel on steel can cause rusting over time. See more tips here: Bar Care & Maintenance.

Proprietary Matte Black Sleeve Finish

Rogue’s new PMB finish utilizes a process that effectively transforms the surface of the steel rather than coating it, greatly increasing the sleeves’ long-term corrosion resistance and color endurance. Please Note: The Proprietary Matte Black metal treatment process also hardens the steel, which can cause some additional friction with plates that have a chamfer.

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.
