Inspired by Rogue Athlete and world-class Strongman Hafþór Júlíus "Thor" Björnsson, the exclusive THOR EDITION Ohio Power Bar is available here in a 45LB version, each featuring our new ultra-durable Cerakote finish. These 29MM bars are fully machined and assembled in Columbus, OH, and—like the standard Ohio Power Bar—they include a 205,000 PSI steel shaft, single powerlifting knurl marks, and center knurling.

As a tribute to Hafthor Bjornsson’s seven-year reign as Iceland’s Strongest Man, the black cerakote shaft in this design also features the Icelandic flag to the right of the center knurl and the nickname THOR in white to the left. Cerakote is a unique polymer-ceramic composite coating—popularized in the gun industry for its durability in thin applications. Offering wear and corrosion resistance up to 100X that of black zinc, it’s a finish worthy of the greatest athletes in the world.

WHAT SETS THE THOR BARS APART:

1

CERAKOTE FINISH W/ EXCLUSIVE THOR BRANDING

Cerakote has been a game changer in the industry; a durable color finish—first popularized in the gun industry— that’s uniquely resistant to wear and corrosion over time. The versatility of this polymer-ceramic composite coating has enabled new, custom athlete designs like the THOR EDITION Ohio Power Bar, which includes mountainous strongman Hafthor Bjornsson’s nickname and the blue, red & white of his native Icelandic flag on the cerakote shaft.

2

205,000 PSI STEEL

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.

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.

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.

*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.

This bar has amazing grip and the center knurl is a must for me! The smaller lip on the sleeves allows for more weight on the bar. That combined with the rogue echo bumpers gives room to spare even with 495 on the bar!

Love the look and feel.
My lovely wife got this for me as a gift, and this was one of the best gifts ever. I just love the cerakote finish and the bar just feels great and performs like what a rogue ohio power bar should. Thank you honey, I love you! Oh and also to Rogue. Thanks!

The Thor Edition Power Bar 20kg - a total beast
As an owner of the raw steel, zinc covered and stainless steel OHBs how could I not add ths one to my aresenal ? In many ways this is my favourite version of the bar. Why? The cerakote shaft makes it a breeze to maintain coupled with Chrome sleeves for longevity when loading and unloading steel plates. I hate to think what steel plates would do to cerakote coated sleeves. Otherwise - yes the stainless bar is awesome. It just a matter of taste - when I don't want to squat that final heavy set. The word "Thor" looks back at me and I think what would Thor do ? He would squat the dam bar...hahah
