Product Description

Crafted to stand out as the ultimate powerlifting barbell, the Ohio Power Bar shines in the squat, bench press, and deadlift. The 29MM shaft provides minimal flex for maximum stability under heavy loads and is paired with a deep knurl designed for a sticky grip. Left uncoated, the knurl will feel just as it was intended, while the stainless shaft maintains the highest level of oxidation resistance. From the home gym to the commercial facility, the Ohio Power Bar is your go-to for the big three lifts or any accessory requiring a barbell.


Precision Meets Power

Every Ohio Power Bar is precisely machined and assembled in Columbus, OH using US steel that is proven ideal for heavy powerlifting. We combine a 200,000 PSI tensile strength, low flexion shaft, IPF powerlifting knurl marks and our signature Ohio Power Bar knurling. The knurling is machined in a pattern that is deep and coarse, providing an ideal surface for heavy pulls without being sharp or abrasive. Additionally, it features a matching center knurl that adheres to your back when you need it most. 


ENHANCED FEATURES

Best In Class Durability

With a F-Scale rating of F10-R, the Ohio Power Bar is among the most durable barbells in its class. By optimizing materials and manufacturing techniques, the Ohio Power Bar has been engineered to withstand the heavy demands that powerlifting places on barbells today, whether it be used daily in the garage or in a high-use commercial gym. Read more here.

LOW PROFILE SLEEVE DESIGN

Our new low-profile sleeve design makes loading and unloading plates easier than ever. The precision-machined sleeve is then treated with our proprietary matte black process, significantly enhancing its resistance to corrosion and impact. This treatment ensures that the sleeves retain their appearance for a much longer duration compared to traditional sleeve finishes.

Loading

2X QUIETER PERFORMANCE

Using precision machining, we are able to tighten the fit of the sleeve on the shaft which means a smoother spin, a more connected feeling while lifting and significant noise reduction.

How It's Made
1

FRICTION WELDING

The collars of the sleeves are friction welded, creating the strongest sleeves in the industry. This bond is as strong as if machined from a single piece of steel, while saving on waste and cost. 

Rogue Work Hardening
2

Rogue Work Hardening

Our patented, proprietary process more than doubles the durability and lifespan of the barbell shaft compared to our competitors. 

Proprietary Sleeve Finish
3

Proprietary Sleeve Finish

Our matte black sleeve option involves a new process that effectively transforms the surface of the steel rather than coating it. This transformation significantly enhances the sleeves’ corrosion resistance, impact resistance, and abrasion resistance. 

State-of-the-art Gauging
4

State-of-the-art Gauging

We use gauging normally employed in the aerospace industry to ensure that every bar that makes it to a customer is exactly as designed.

Barbell Durability

RUST RESISTANCE

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.

BARBELL DURABILITY

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.

Loading

F SCALE™ APPLICATION

How a barbell is used will affect its durable lifespan and it's a key factor in determining what type of F Rating™ might be suitable for your gym's needs. This graph correlates the F Rating™ of a barbell with different types of usage in order to predict the durable lifespan. Using this data, we are able to make recommendations on what F Rating™ is appropriate for different training situations. With a rating of F10-R, the Ohio Power Bar is rated to outlast a lifetime of lifting (50+ years) in a powerlifting facility or home gym.

Key Features of the Ohio Power Bar - Stainless Steel:

Stainless Steel
1

Stainless Steel

No finish offers better oxidation resistance than stainless steel, and this version of the Ohio Power Bar features a stainless shaft and the option for stainless sleeves. Stainless steel is low maintenance for gym owners, and eliminates worries about chipping or wearing down the finish on the bar’s sleeves. As noted, we recommend using a synthetic bristle brush, NOT a steel brush, to clean a stainless steel shaft.

200,000 PSI Tensile Strength
2

200,000 PSI Tensile Strength

The Stainless Ohio Power Bar’s 29MM diameter steel shaft has a tensile strength of 200,000 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.

Aggressive Knurl
3

Aggressive 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.

Lifetime Warranty
4

Lifetime Warranty

The quality construction of the Stainless Ohio Power Bar 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.

Who Needs Stainless Steel...Everyone
This bar is amazing! The knurling is so perfect and the quality is unmatched. I love the black sync sleeves, it just looks awesome against the black rack. This bar lives in the garage, so the stainless will be helpful with the humidity and likely reduce any rusting issues for it's lifetime.

Not So Great
This bar was definitely a disappointment considering the high regard I have for rogue and their quality standards. Like other reviews have stated there are some inconsistencies and blemishes on the shaft that are not typical from my experience with other bars I have purchased from rogue. The biggest issue with my bar however is with the sleeves. One sleeve seems to be to specs but the other measures a bit larger and there is a ton of friction and shaving of material when putting plates on and off. Hasn’t caused any damage to plates but the finish on the one sleeve is fading fast after just a few weeks of use. Overall a solid bar from a function standpoint but is a noticeable drop off in quality from my previous experience with rogue bars and equipment.

Great Bar, Experienced Lifter
I would probably give a 4.5 or 4.6 That being said, I love this bar ! I don't want a shiny bar that looks fancy I want a bar that handles my weight Unless on a specific squat bar this is my favorite to squat with or bench (I have 4 power bars) I would rate 5.0 if it didn't flex as much on heavy squat It feels great on back or in hands
Yes, I recommend this product

Knurl good. Sleeves suck. Lots of burrs.
Received it with lots of defects and marks all over the shaft during black November. Looked worse than blems. And I machine stuff. So it's not machine marks, not symmetrical at all, looks like a bunch of random scuffs and pitting. Not sure if it's the get rid of these special or just normal for Rogue
