Rogue 45LB Ohio Power Bar - Bare Steel

Fully machined and assembled in Columbus, OH, the 29MM Rogue Ohio Power Bar features a 205,000 PSI steel shaft, single powerlifting knurl marks, and center knurling. The bar’s knurl pattern is deep and coarse without being sharp or abrasive, and the 29MM shaft diameter and high tensile strength result in little to no flex or whip. This makes the Ohio Power Bar a perfectly honed workhorse for the bench, squat, and deadlift.

The 45LB Ohio Power Bar includes bronze bushings, a snap ring design, and 16.25" of loadable sleeve length.

Please Note: Like any fine piece of machined steel, a bare steel barbell will require some upkeep. Occasionally brushing the bar down with 3-in-1 oil or WD-40 will create a beautiful patina look. This is how bars were made for decades and it really does produce an unmatched feel.

Key Features of This Ohio Power Bar:

  • 1205,000 PSI Steel (200,000 PSI For Stainless)

    The Ohio Power Bar’s 29MM diameter steel shaft boasts a tensile strength of 205,000 PSI (200,000 PSI for Stainless), 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.

  • 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.

  • 3Bare Steel Finish

    The Bare Steel creates a classic look and natural feel, the Zinc option (black shaft, bright sleeves) provides excellent corrosion resistance, and the Stainless Steel variation (with Chrome sleeves) strikes a balance between the two. Depending on the look and feel you prefer, there is a version of the Ohio Power Bar right in your wheelhouse.

  • 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.

  • 5Lifetime Warranty

    The Ohio Power Bar’s quality construction is backed by Rogue’s Lifetime Warranty against bending. This is a barbell equipped for high intensity, everyday use.
    *Please Note: The warranty does not cover damage due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user, 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.

  • 6Fast Rogue Shipping

    Orders placed by 3PM ship the same day. The Rogue Shipping System allows you to track your order from the time you place it to the time it hits your door. Order today, track today.

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.

Please Note: Like any fine piece of machined steel, a bare steel barbell will require some upkeep. Occasionally brushing the bar down with 3-in-1 oil or WD-40 will create a beautiful patina look. This is how bars were made for decades and it really does produce an unmatched feel.

*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 45LB Ohio Power Bar - Bare Steel is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 61.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bar I’ve ever used This is the best bar I’ve ever used. Knurl is gripper doesn’t truly feel aggressive after a couple weeks and I haven’t need to do any maintenance yet

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but... This is a good bar that is made in the USA. I bought it in November 2020 and I work out in my basement. The bar is already showing signs of rust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawless I understand why there's a boneyard now because I can't find a single imperfection on my bar no matter how minor. The knurling is way too aggressive in my opinion but that's my preference and has nothing to do with the quality of the bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Good as it gets I was a little hesitant on buying the bare steel bar bc I have a garage gym, but wanted it because of the feel. Besides, a little rust never hurt. Well, I’ve had this bar for months and no sign of rust and I’ve only used the oil once. I will brush it after deadlifts to get the powder out of it and will wipe it off with a dry microfiber cloth after pulling off some of my left outside for a couple of months plates that leaves a little rust on the sleeves, but easily wipes off. This bar get used 4x per week by me and my son who plays college football will come by with some his teammates a couple times per week for different scenery and food. When I upgrade my garage, I will expand my gym and will purchase another one or two of these bad boys for convenience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the only and only I only have space for one barbell in my garage gym and a single bar holder. Those are the facts, I can't change that. If you are in the same spot as me, then this is the bar to have at the top of the list. Great overall best bar for a broad range of exercises, if you have to chose just one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar Knurling is a little aggressive but great for deadlifts. Love the bare steel feel. Quality is great as always, this bar is a workhourse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bar on the market I use to get Texas Strength bars for years. But Rogue has taken over in the last decade with producing top quality products. I love this bar, the knurling on it is awesome and I know these bars are tested thoroughly for tensile strength/durability and the sleeve length is great.
