Key Features of This Ohio Bar:

  • 1New 190,000 PSI Steel

    This steel is manufactured in the US and has proven to be one of the best steel variants for a multi-purpose barbell. Each barbell shaft is ground and polished prior to machining which allows the bar to have a very smooth finish post any black oxide or black zinc finish.

  • 2Machining

    Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio. A great deal of pride is built into each bar as the knurling process is an art. We spent months working on the knurl we believe to be the best for the Ohio Bar. To test the knurl it is more a beer tasting process than exact measurement. There is a look and feel that go into testing every bar.

  • 3Fit and Finish

    Each Ohio Bar finish offers a different level of oxidization protection and has a direct effect on the feel of the knurl.

    Black Oxide is a mild oxidization protectant process. This type of steel treatment will still require some maintenance but will give the best knurl feel, more like a naked bar.

    Zinc is a medium oxidization protectant process. This type of steel treatment requires minimal maintenance and is used on The Rogue and Bella Bars.

    The Ohio Bar is also available in Stainless Steel & an advanced ceramic-based coating called Cerakote.

  • 4Assembly

    The Ohio Bar is assembled with bronze bushings which act as bearing surfaces between the bar sleeve and bar shaft. This is a very robust way of building a barbell. Each bar will come with an Ohio Bar card that has the initials of the Rogue team member that built the bar.

  • 5Performance

    This bar will have normal “whip” during Olympic weightlifting and enough stiffness to hold for heavy powerlifting. The steel in this bar is proven as an excellent choice for weightlifters.

  • 6Fast Rogue Shipping

    Rogue prides itself on fast, professional shipping. If your bar is ordered by 3PM EST Monday-Friday, it will ship same day. Your bar will be packaged safely and ship fast. You can follow the progress of your order using the Rogue Shipping Tracker.

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.

Whichever barbell finish you choose, Rogue has provided some helpful tips for long term Bar Care & Maintenance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Barbell I’ve Used I toss chalk in my hands after loading the barbell and it’s heaven. I love the black and red color combo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Looks meets great function I obviously bought this bar for it's looks and I'm happy to say it's function is far better than I could hope. Just starting my home gym, I've never been exposed to high quality bars and couldn't be more pleased. Grip is phenomenal, whip feels good and the collar spin with smooth bearings is better than anything I've touch before. I will definitely be sticking with rogue bars from now on

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Bar The quality and construction of the bar is top notch and seems to take abuse pretty well. I've had the pleasure of ordering my first rogue bar. Impressed with rogue's shipping and packing. I wanted something versatile for my home gym. Rogue bars are really well made and I look forward to seeing how well the finish will last. I can't attest to the longevity but i'm confident it'll last a few years or decades even.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar! This is my first time using a bar, I have always just worked out with dumbbells in my home. When the gyms closed here in Michigan, my teenage son talked me into buying a squat rack, adjustable bench, the Ohio bar and some barbells. I started using the bar right away, and I really like it! We don't have very many weights yet because they are not in stock, but the bar itself is pretty heavy for me to bench anyway! I am able to deadlift much more weight than I used to with the bar. I forgot to buy collars, and they shipped them to me right away without an extra shipping charge. I would recommend this bar and any of the Rouge equipment. My son really loves it and says the quality is the same as the gym. The customer service is great too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Quality Due to pandemic and people working out in home gyms most everything including bars were out of stock. Placed my name on wait list. Didn’t wait long. I ordered The Ohio Bar - Black Oxide and I was not disappointed. Top quality and actually far beyond anyone would need for home gym but due to that I know I am working out with top quality equipment and my safety is ensured.
