Rogue Ohio Deadlift Bar - Cerakote

Special Price $571.37 CAD

Regular Price: $571.37 CAD

* Required Options

The latest version of the Ohio Deadlift Bar introduces four new Cerakote color finishes, with your choice of a black, red, blue, or OD green shaft. All options also include the Rogue logo on the center of the shaft and black Cerakote sleeves.

Like the original ODB, the Cerakote model is machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, and precision-engineered for the needs of the competitive deadlifter. The bar’s 190,000 PSI steel shaft is designed with a comparatively thin diameter (27MM) and longer overall length (90.50" – just within most powerlifting federation standards). This combination creates a power bar that is both easier to grip and better equipped for producing maximum whip/flex when pulling. For many powerlifters, that greater flex means being able to pull from a higher point before the plates break off the floor, potentially increasing the amount of weight that can be lifted in the process.

The Ohio Deadlift Bar’s sleeves feature a quality snap ring construction—far superior to the cheaply produced bolt-and-pin style sleeves of some other brands. The powerlifting knurl marks on this bar are a bit deeper / more aggressive than our Ohio Power Bar, but machined in the same pattern. There is no center knurl.

What Sets the Cerakote Ohio Deadlift Bar Apart:

  • 1New Cerakote Color Finishes

    The new Ohio Deadlift Bar is finished using a polymer-ceramic composite coating called Cerakote, which has been popular for years in the gun industry for its remarkable durability in thin applications. This advanced finish can deliver superb abrasion/wear/corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc—while also enabling much greater versatility in color choices and design. The Cerakote Deadlift Bar comes in four colorways—black, red, blue, and OD green—each paired with black sleeves and Rogue branding on the center of the shaft.

  • 2190,000 PSI Steel Shaft - Specialized for Deadlifts

    This steel used for the Ohio Deadlift Bar is manufactured in the US and has proven to be one of the best steel variants for a competition power bar. Each barbell shaft is ground and polished prior to machining, enabling a consistent smooth surface. With this design, we also created a shaft with a thinner diameter (190,000 PSI) and longer length (90.50"), optimizing the bar’s flex/whip for high-performance deadlifts.

  • 3Machining & Assembly

    Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio, with painstaking attention to detail. A snap ring construction and quality bronze bushings ensure a smooth, consistent performance. The powerlifting knurl marks are a bit deeper / more aggressive than our Ohio Power Bar, but machined in the same pattern. There is no center knurl.

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.

*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 Ohio Deadlift Bar - Cerakote is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect deadlift bar, bullet-proof! Bought this bar after much research and am happy to report that I have no “buyers regret” whatsoever! Started using it right out of the box and worked up to 570 for a single. Pulled with stiff bars in training and was always thrown off in Powerlifting meets when using their deadlift bar. Getting used to pulling the slack out before pulling has helped me tremendously in competitions. As you can see in the picture this bar has major whip and bends, even with relatively light 570 pounds. The knurl is grippy enough to not need chalk and doesn’t tear up your hands as long as you ride the weight down and not drop it from hip level. I load this bar up with chains and bands for accommodating resistance and experience no ill effects on the paint. This bar will last forever. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beauty Treated myself to the matte black cerakote version. It's a looker. In terms of performance, from reading the reviews, I was a bit worried about the knurling being too aggressive. While it's significantly more aggressive than a standard Ohio bar, it's not excessive. One just needs to be smart and use proper skin management. On bar whip, I think one's experience will depend on the user's experience or lack thereof with a deadlift bar and, of course, the deadlift movement in general. There is virtually no difference between the OH bars up into the high 300s but around the low 400 mark, one can start to feel the subtle differences. I would not say one is "better" or "easier" than the other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No complaints I bought this to replace my Texas deadlift bar. My old bar was over 10 yrs old and still going strong but it would destroy my hands every workout. This ohio deadlift bar has great knurling that has not been destroying my hands. It doesn't have the same whip as the texas deadlift bar but I've only loaded it up to 240kg so far but that's ok. It's not a huge difference. The finish is flawless and there is no signs of the sleeves flaking but we shall see. That being said, the sleeves were my delay in getting the bar for fears of flaking and looking terrible but thinking about it my texas bar was all rusted up even while being in a basement gym for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent barbell The knurling isn’t too sharp, and the whip is great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar for overloading the deadlift I used this bar at my base gym and have seen it stand the rigors of commercial use. The gym has two of these bars and they seem to have held up good there first month. I had never used a deadlift bar before and the first time I used this I hit a PR on deads by 20 pounds and cracked in the 500s. The bar has a lot of whip, knurl and the small diameter helps with grip. When I get back home I will and this to my home gym collection. I personally would use this as an overload tool for the deadlift but it’s a completely different animal if all you have ever used is a stiff bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome whip! First pure deadlift bar. Great whip and a nice toy to add to my collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this bar! I have been lifting with three old power bars for almost 20 years, and the knurling was wearing off. I finally decided to upgrade and get this bar to help with my grip on heavy deadlifts; and it certainly did that! The smaller diameter is barely noticeable, but it does help me get a better grip. The aggressive knurl is a bit rough at first, but my hands are getting used to it. I like the whip for heavier lifts as well. I usually do conventional deadlifts, and the slightly wider knurl-free center on this bar is just wide enough to spare my shins, where my old bar would barely catch my shins with its knurl. The red and black match well with my black Monster RM-6 rack and the red highlights on the monolift attachment I use for squats. The shipment arrived quickly and, as usual, Rogue protected it very well with their packaging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great deadlift bar Everyone at my gym loves this bar. Recently ordered a second one in the cerakote. Don't listen to the people that say the knurling is too much. It's a powerlifting bar meant for deadlifting, it's supposed to have aggressive knurling!!!
