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 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Bar I bought this bar in Bare Steel about 2 years ago, and it's still my favorite bar. I live in the Pacific NW, lot of rain. I work out in my garage and haven't had a problem with rust at all (I have never had to sand/scrub it). Just giving you a point of reference if you're concerned about upkeep. Not humid here like FL or TX, but not the driest climate either. 29mm feels great, the knurl is best in class. I also have a 28mm bar, less aggressive knurl, and no center knurl that only gets used for front squat and over head movements, so it doesn't chew up the front of my neck. I use this bar for everything else, it's the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar I went for the bare steel since I dont mind if it gets a petina, its not exactly going to rust away any time soon, it does start getting surface rust quite soon on any places your skin touches, on mine its where my shoulders touch the bar during a squat. My previous bar was a standard bar so this is better in every way. The knurling is excellent, I can't tell if im gripping the bar or if its gripping me lol, definitely feel more secure in my hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality. Great value. American made! Excellent bar. I've had 500lbs on it and it hasn't even flexed. Feels very strong. The knurling is way more aggressive than any of my other bars but its fine. Its a more coarse knurl than I expected, but I should have just read the description. The bar sleeves are not smooth. The have a texture to them. Overall, very good, strong bar & Ohio made! I'm happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar I purchased this bar in the bare steel finish and it’s amazing. Aggressive but comfortable knurling, looks amazing, and it just radiates quality.
