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.

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.
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.
