Rogue 20KG Ohio Power Bar

The Rogue 20KG Ohio Power Bar is fully machined and assembled in Columbus, OH, using 205K PSI tensile strength steel (200K PSI for Stainless). Approved for competition by the International Powerlifting Federation, this 29MM diameter bar includes single powerlifting knurl marks and a center knurl, with the same deep, coarse (but not overly sharp) knurl pattern as our 45LB Ohio Power Bar. The 20KG bar does have a greater loadable sleeve length than the 45LB bar (16.875” vs. 16.25”). This is a result of the slightly smaller width of the collars.

One of the key factors that sets the 20KG Ohio Power Bar apart from other powerlifting barbells in the industry is its friction welded sleeves. A technique borrowed from the worlds of aviation and automotive manufacturing, the friction welding process creates a precision, forged-quality bond, resulting in superior strength and fatigue resistance, as well as a finer grain structure on the welded joint.

The 20KG Rogue Ohio Power Bar includes bronze bushings, a snap ring design, and two finish options: Black Zinc shaft with Bright Zinc sleeves or Stainless Steel shaft with Chrome sleeves.

Specifications:

  • Made in Columbus, OH, USA
  • Weight 20KG (+/- 0.1% of actual weight)
  • More aggressive knurling for powerlifting
  • Center knurl for added “stick” to the back during squats
  • 29MM Diameter and 205,000 PSI tensile strength (200,000 PSI for Stainless) for greater rigidity and reduced whip/flex
  • Bronze Bushings and Snap Ring Design for smooth spin
  • Weight: 20KG
  • Friction Welded Sleeves
  • Finish Options: Black Zinc Shaft w/ Bright Zinc Sleeves or Stainless Shaft w/ Chrome Sleeves
  • Lifetime Warranty against bending*
  • IPF Approved

Key Features of the Rogue 20KG Ohio Power Bar

  • 1205,000 PSI Steel (200,000 PSI for Stainless)

    The Ohio Power Bar’s 29MM diameter steel shaft boasts a tensile strength of 205,000 PSI (200,000 PSI for Stainless), 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. IPF approved for competition.

  • 2Aggressive 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.

  • 3Friction Welded Sleeves

    A technique borrowed from the worlds of aviation and automotive manufacturing, the friction welding process creates a precision, forged-quality bond, resulting in superior strength and fatigue resistance, as well as a finer grain structure on the welded joint.

  • 4Use It With These Other Rogue Products

    Ohio Power Bar owners can use this barbell in conjunction with a broad range of other top caliber Rogue powerlifting products, from the Westside Bench and R-3 Power Rack to deadlift bar jacks, Wagon Wheel plates, and Calibrated Steel Plates.

  • 5Two Finish Options

    The 20KG version of the Ohio Power Bar is available in your choice of two quality finishes. The Zinc option (black shaft, bright sleeves) provides excellent corrosion resistance, while the new Stainless Steel variation (with Chrome sleeves) creates the look and natural feel of bare steel with less upkeep required.

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.

Rogue 20KG Ohio Power Bar is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 55.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 20KG Stainless Steel OPB This bar is fantastic. The grip and feel of the stainless steel version rivals anything on the market, and at a much better price-point for this quality. This will be our go-to bar when hosting competitions. They really nailed it with this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Bar. Not happy with black zinc coating. I’ve had the bar for over a year now and love everything about it except the black zinc coating. It began to wear shortly after I purchased it from contact with my shins from deadlifting. So much so that I quit deadlifting with it and purchased a boneyard deadlift bar to use instead. It’s just cosmetic but if I had known it would not stand up to the task I’d have purchased the Stainless version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Example of Quiet Strength This bar is a no-fuss part of my basement gym. I compete in the USAPL, and since they use this bar, I practice with it. It has done nothing to make itself known - although I've only had it for a little while, it does everything it's supposed to do, and looks as good as it did on day #1. Everything to like, nothing not to like. If you don't want to worry about your equipment, this is your bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent power bar! Purchased the 20kg Ohio Power bar about a month ago and love it. Great fit and finish as with all Rogue bars. Knurling is aggressive, good spin for a power bar and very little flex. Have squatted over 700 with it and the bar had very little flex. My new favorite bar. I prefer it to my Buddy Caps texas power bar and my Ivanko competition powerlifting bar. Much better price too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stainless Steel FTW I've used the Ohio Power Bar at my local gym and liked the knurl so much I purchased the stainless steel version for my home. This is a very good bar that will last a lifetime. It feels good in my hands and inspires me to lift. There are fancier bars out there with extra features that don't matter. But there is no better bar out there for less money. This is everything you need in a bar that will last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bargin Feels very nice to squat and deadlift with. Has very good kneeling for grip, no whip in the bar, is very solid. If your serious about lifting I would definitely recommend buying this bar. Is also a lot cheaper than the other ipf approved bars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the bar Love the bar, it's your typical power bar. The Knurling is aggresive, it could stand to be a little more aggressive. It's relatively stiff, the most I've squatted with this far on this bar is 620 and there was minimal bend and zero whip.
