The Ohio Bar - E-Coat

The latest variation of our flagship Rogue Ohio Bar introduces a new, Black E-Coat shaft finish. This electrically applied coating was first popularized in the auto industry for its reliable coverage, adhesion, and corrosion resistance, and it’s gained even wider favor for its environmental benefits, producing little to no HAPS (Hazardous Air Pollutants) or VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds).

Like all Ohio Bars, the E-Coat model is fully machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio. It includes a 190,000 PSI tensile strength shaft, dual knurl marks (no center knurl), and bright zinc sleeves. The hybrid knurling pattern offers a firm but comfortable grip on both Powerlifts and Oly lifts, while a snap-ring design, quality U.S. steel, and bronze bushings help produce the perfect balance of rigidity and natural whip.

Key Features of This Ohio Bar:

  • 1Rogue Machining and Assembly

    Made with pride in Columbus, Ohio, the 20 KG Ohio Bar has been put to use for years in home gyms; high school, collegiate and pro training programs; CrossFit gyms; military bases . . . anywhere athletes are concerned with quality. Each 190,000 PSI tensile strength steel shaft is ground and polished prior to machining to ensure a better finish, and the dual knurl marks are carefully refined for a firm but non-abrasive grip. The snap ring design, bronze bushings, and quality U.S. steel help produce an ideal combination of the consistent “whip” needed for Oly lifts and the ample rigidity required for heavy powerlifting.

  • 2E-Coat Finish

    The black electrocoat, or E-Coat shaft finish on this Ohio Bar is an electrically-applied paint coating noted for its excellent corrosion resistance, cost efficiency, and green benefits. It has been widely adopted by leading manufacturers for the finishing of auto parts, metal stampings, fasteners, lawn/garden & agricultural equipment, military equipment, and much more. E-Coat finishes stand up to water, sunlight, and household chemicals, and they are compliant with the environmental safety standards of the RoHS, OSHA and EPA.

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.

The Ohio Bar - E-Coat is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar! Bought this a few weeks ago—would highly recommend. It has a really nice feel. Saw a few posts about getting black on your hands—not an issue at all. Seems like it’s normal based on being new. Got black on my hands after first use, wiped down and never happened again. Came off my hands easily with normal quarantine hand washing. :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great bar but E-Coat is Slippery Overall the quality of the bar is what I would expect from a rogue bar. Great construction and durable! However I would not recommend purchasing the e-coat version, especially if you do squats. The coating makes the surface very slippery which makes it difficult to keep on your back while squatting (especially since there is no center knurl). I have also found that the coating reduces the aggressiveness of the knurl, which makes it difficult to hold while doing heavy deadlifts. Overall the bar’s quality is great, but the coating makes it challenging to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far So Good! I purchased my Ohio Bar in early January of 2020 and so far have had no issues with it. The E-Coat itself is good (and why I'm writing this review) as at the time of writing this, there aren't any out there. In terms of feel, the knurling is moderate - similar to most olympic knurls, and I would definitely recommend it. When comparing it to some of the other options I had looked at, this bar just feels right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As expected This bar is as expected. I even squat with mine.(W/grip tape in the middle) The people complaining about the diameter or knurling aren't familiar with different bars, such as xpc/rps certified dead lift bars,larger diameter squat bars etc. This bar is exactly as advertised. I have total confidence in the coating lasting a long time. The dual knurl marks make it easy to line up your grip and the knurling is consistent. I've had 3 different kind of collars on this bar and they all work perfectly. I've had bands and chains on this bar as well, and there was no awkward increase in "whip". The bearings worked perfectly even with bands and chains all the way at the end of the bar too. Besides all that jazz, the bar looks great too. Nice job Rogue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Bar I'm by no means an expert on any type of lifting, but having had the bar for a couple weeks now, it feels better (smoother bearing, perfect knurl) than other bars I've used in gyms. Shipping something like this is no easy feat, it arrived with packaging tore on one end, but the bar had no scratches or defects at all. Great to buy made in USA too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What I Needed Right Now Took some real patience to get it but the bar is great. I have had it about a month or so but it has been a great add to my garage gym build. Quality of the bar is top notch and E-Coat feels nice. The knurling is pretty easy on the hands as well. Will upgrade at some point to a Power bar but for now this will get it done

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar I bought this bar so that I could really do my workouts in superset fashion to try to save some time. My Other bar is an Ohio Power Bar that I absolutely love. I bought this one because I wanted to get a bar that has more whip to use for deadlifts, rows, and cleans. It works great although I don't feel to much difference when deadlifting but I may not be able to lift enough to where you could feel it. All in all I am glad that I bought this bar as Easily cut off 25 minutes from my workouts by using 2 bars.
