Rogue Echo Bar 2.0

Machined and assembled at our Columbus manufacturing facility, the newly redesigned Rogue Echo Bar 2.0 is an economically priced 28.5mm bushing bar equipped with many of the same features as our flagship Rogue Ohio Bar.

Starting with a 190,000 PSI tensile strength steel shaft and bright zinc finish, the Echo Bar also now includes an upgraded snap ring sleeve construction and exclusive Echo branded endcaps. There are single IWF standard Olympic knurl marks (no center knurl or powerlifting marks) and 16.4” of loadable sleeve length.

All orders of the Echo Bar also come with a 1-year warranty.*

*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.

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.

What Sets the Echo Bar Apart:

  • 1Budget Price, Same Quality

    The Echo Bar—just like our flagship 28.5mm Ohio Bar—is constructed from 190,000 PSI tensile strength steel, with quality bronze bushings that act as bearing surfaces between the bar sleeve and shaft. A bright zinc finish across the entirety of the bar finishes the look.

  • 2Updated Snap Ring Construction

    Brand new for Version 2.0 of the Echo Bar is a fully upgraded snap-ring construction, battle-tested to maintain optimal stability throughout any type of high-intensity Olympic movement. This, again, is the exact same construction used in the Rogue Ohio Bar. We have also included new Echo exclusive endcaps for this re-design, a feature not found with the original model.

  • 3Machining - Knurl

    The Echo Bar includes single, IWF standard Olympic knurl marks (there are no powerlifting marks and no center knurl) in an consistent, non-abrasive pattern. Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio, and treated with artistic precision.

  • 4Part of the Rogue Echo Series

    Rogue manufactures a wide range of other quality, economically priced equipment under the Echo Series, including our Echo Power Racks, Echo Squat Stands, Echo LB Bumper Plates, and more.

  • 5Performance

    Despite its friendly price tag, the Echo Bar is up to the demands of high-performance, competitive Oly lifting. The 20KG bar will produce a consistent spin and “whip” during any traditional Olympic movement, and the durability of its construction is backed by a one-year warranty.*

Rogue Echo Bar 2.0 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar at an AMAZING Price As soon as this bar dropped, I knew I had to have it! I've been wanting to get some of my own equipment at home for quite some time - at a price like this, I didn't think twice. Wasn't sure what to expect, but the quality of this bar is absolutely amazing for the price you pay. It's even at a price point that rivals the junk you can get at big box stores. Knurling, spin, and whip just like the Ohio Bar. I actually prefer this to the Ohio, since I'm not a fan of the black finish. It even looks amazing! Paired this bar with a set of Echo plates and I was able to get a great home setup for not a lot of cash. Thanks Rogue for making this awesome product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Barbell This is my first barbell I bought it about 6 months ago. I have to say it has been good to me. I beat the heck out of this barbell and it is still straight and still spinning fine. I am a power lifter and i know that isn't what this bar is designed for but I was on a budget. It regularly has well over 500 pounds on it. I have droped it with that much weight and it is still fine. I do plan on upgrading to an ohio power bar soon though. All and all great first budget bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality perfect for going to next level Bought this bar as part of an upgrade for my home gym. I wanted a quality USA made bar but would never have considered the higher priced bars on my budget. I also didn't want another cheap import bar from the big box stores.. I am not a very experienced lifter but I want to go to the next level. I think Rogue hit a sweet spot demographic with this bar.. Very well made and will probably outlast me. I do kind of wish it had the center knurl for better back squat but until I can lift heavier it is fine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's aggressive. I've had this bar for about a month now. It's a beautiful barbell coming right out of the tube! I have both the Ohio and now Echo bar, so o have something to compare to. Essentially it's the same build as the Ohio bar with the exception of the single mark to the dual marks that the Ohio bar offers. Biggest difference is in the Knurling!! This Echo Bar knurling is fairly aggressive and WILL shred the hands and fingers up a bit when doing high rep movements. Esp if you hook grip or suicide grip. the Ohio Bar is a more passive or smooth knurling. And the fact Rogue only offers a 1yr warranty instead of a lifetime, is kind of a downer. If you are on a budget and looking for an all around simple purpose BB, this is a good option. But for a few $$ more, I'd spring for the Ohio Bar or equivalent. I gave it a 3star rating mostly because of the limited warranty and again, knurling is pretty aggressive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bar!!! I bought this bar about 8 months ago and use it in my home gym with the Echo Plates. This bar is great for home use with good spin. I have used other Rogue Oly bars at my box and this stacks up with them. You will not be disappointed with this bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great first bar for beginner/intermediate Purchased the Echo bar along with the Echo color bumpers, RML-390F Flat Foot and Rogue 2.0 bench to start my basement dungeon gym. It's solid for a beginner/intermediate like myself who's focus is getting stronger at dead lift, squat, bench and OHP. It is way better than any bar you will find at a globo gym. Anything you buy from Rogue is better than anything at a globo gym for that matter. If you are not doing any Olympic lifts this is a great bar. If you are, then buy something else because the sleeves don't rotate very well. I just purchased the Rogue training bar so the Echo will become my secondary bar. I plan to use in the landmine and toss it around with reckless abandon so it will still get used and abused.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tremendous value I bought this bar for my home gym. I have several B&R bars, and didn't want to spend that much for another bar, so I looked at the Echo bar. The finish on this is terrific, and everything else about it is top notch as well. The only "cons" for me would be, and again this is in comparison to my B&R's, the bar only has one has one Oly knurl, so that was remedied by marking where the second one would be with a Sharpie, and no knurling in the middle of the bar. I tend to like that knurling for my squats. Again, I knew all of that before I bought the bar so it isn't like I was disappointed. Overall, I will probably end up buying more of this model in the future, so I would say get-cha one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do not hesitate to buy this bar I have had this bar over a month and it is worth every penny. I actually purchased the boneyard version of this bar. Other than the fact that it has a black zinc bar and raw sleeves I cannot find a single imperfection. This bar is worlds better than the typical gym and cheapo Dick's sporting goods bar. The knurling is out of this world compared to those bars. From what I can tell this is essentially an Ohio bar without the dual knurling and over $100 less. I was worried I might want the dual knurling but I have not really missed it. Most of the time I gauge the position of my hands from where the knurling starts anyway. As far as the warranty I have zero concerns I will need it. I have dropped it from overhead and it doesn't flinch. I like the confidence in having a bar that I know can handle anything and everything. If you are building a home gym, start with this bar and add everything else after.
