Rogue Ohio Power Bar - Cerakote

Our 29MM Ohio Power Bar is now available in a Cerakote finish, with a range of exclusive colorways to choose from. This unique polymer-ceramic composite coating was originally popularized in the gun industry for its durability in thin applications, and it offers up to 100x the corrosion resistance of standard black zinc.

Aside from the finish, the Cerakote Ohio Power Bar is manufactured to the same general specifications as the original model, combining a 205,000 PSI, zero-flex steel shaft with quality bronze bushings and a snap ring design for a smooth, consistent spin. The bar features single powerlifting knurl marks and center knurling, machined in a pattern that’s deep and coarse without being sharp or abrasive. This makes the Ohio Power Bar a perfectly honed workhorse for the bench, squat, and deadlift.

The 45LB Cerakote Ohio Power Bar is machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, USA, and currently comes in the four colorway options listed below. Note: The Rogue logo on each shaft is slightly off-center due to the center knurling.

Key Features of the Cerakote Ohio Power Bar

  • 1Cerakote Strength + Custom Colors

    This version of the Rogue Ohio Power Bar is distinct for its use of Cerakote, a ceramic-based coating commonly trusted by firearm manufacturers for its remarkable durability in thin applications. This unique finish can deliver superb abrasion/wear/corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc—and it’s available to order in a range of exclusive colorways, with the Rogue logo branded on the center of the shaft. See the menu for current color combination options.

  • 2205,000 PSI Steel Shaft

    The Ohio Power Bar’s 29MM diameter steel shaft boasts a tensile strength of 205,000 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.

  • 3Aggressive 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.

  • 4Part of the Rogue Powerlifting Arsenal

    Ohio Power Bar owners can use this barbell in conjunction with a broad range of other top caliber Rogue powerlifting products, from our power racks and squat stands to the Westside Bench, 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.

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: Cerakote has an excellent resistance to corrosion, but metal-to-metal contact, particular on the sleeves, can still cause wear over time. For the best long term results, some cleaning and maintenance may be required. See our Ohio Bar Care Page for more info.

Fast 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.

*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 - Cerakote is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing bar! This bar is truly amazing. You don't know what you are missing if you are using a cheap bar until you try this. Got the all black cerakote finish on the Ohio power bar. Loving it. Holding up well so far too (about a dozen workouts in). Knurling is aggressive but not sharp. Collars spin freely but not too much. I love the stiffness of the bar on bench and squat. This bar is a full 6 lbs heavier than my cheap CAP barbell (because this one actually weighs 45 lbs) and yet I could still follow my normal progression without adjusting the weight down. Overall, it just feels awesome in your hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome power bar Going from a gym with regular olympic bars (28mm & bearings), to this was noticeable (for the better). My grip suffered slightly, but I love the lower whip & its deeper knurling. I only need chalk if my hands are super sweaty. I use it for everything - deadlifts, squats, bench, OHP, rows, landmine stuff, etc etc etc. I noticed a tiny spot that seems the paint chipped on the unknurled part, but it's not a big deal. My cheap plates are also beating up the sleeves paint job a good bit because of the rough edges and excess paint, but so far so good. More than likely all the superficial damage is from wear and tear, as I didn't notice any of this stuff when I first got it, which is why I'm still giving it a 5/5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best, bar none. This bar is awesome. Good spin on the sleeves. This bar is the Goldilocks of knurling, not too smooth, not too rough, just right. Use it for everything and the cerakote finish has held up great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bar Great bar for bench and squats. Perfect grip and no need for chalk

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid bar, crazy knurling! Purchased this bar last summer after I realized that my no-name bar was flexing too much to get my bench press off the j-cups (after moving them down one hole on the west side spacing on my rack already). I wanted a stiff bar that would also handle my increasing squat and deadlift weights too. The bar has performed admirably, though it took a bit to get used to the knurling (which is rather aggressive) I am so glad I went with this one. So far, the cerekote has held up well, even on the sleeves (though it's showing a little wear there). I definitely recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Made a Great Choice I bought a blue Cerakote Ohio Bar and it exceeded my expectations starting when I first Iaid eyes on it. The Cerakote is beautiful, and I swear that I worked harder on that first deadlift session with my own bar. I highly, highly recommend this bar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bar, but... This is a phenomenal bar, but the cerakote finish on the sleeves is constantly getting scratched when I put plates on it. Not a big deal, I should have known this would happen, but it takes away from the clean finish that the cerakote lends.
Date published: 2019-04-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best bar I have ever used I got my OPB just over a month ago now and it has been a game-changer in my garage gym. My grip on the bar is unbreakable because of the amazing knurling. I'm doing sets of deadlifts at 300 pounds with double overhand grip (and some chalk) with no problem. Squatting feels excellent with the center knurl grabbing my shirt. I would not trade this bar for any other I've used, it's that good. Well worth your dollars! It has been a month now, like I mentioned above, and there isn't a trace of oxidization on the bar, even in a moderately humid garage.
