WHAT SETS THE CERAKOTE FINISH OHIO BAR APART:

1

Cerakote Strength + Custom Colors

This version of the Ohio Bar is distinct for its use of an advanced ceramic-based coating, originally established in the gun industry for its remarkable durability in thin applications. This unique finish can deliver superb abrasion/wear/corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc—and it’s available to order in a range of exclusive colors, with the Rogue logo branded on the center of the shaft. See the menu for current color combination options.

2

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.

3

Machining & Assembly

Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio, with painstaking attention to detail. The knurling has been carefully refined over the years, as well, for a firm but non-abrasive grip (there is no center knurl). We assemble the Ohio Bar with a snap ring design and quality composite bushings, which act as bearing surfaces between the bar sleeve and bar shaft, producing normal “whip” during Oly weightlifting but enough stiffness to hold for heavy powerlifting.

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.

Awesome bar!
I did a ton of research on bars before deciding on this one and I couldn’t be happier! The bearings are so smooth and helps create really nice pathing and also doesn’t have crazy knurling so it doesn’t destroy your hands. Very very pleased with this bar!

Great investment!
Since I live in an area with high humidity, I wanted to get a barbell that would be highly resistant to rust. My cerakote bar is solid, looks great, and am confident it will last a lifetime!

When a bar is more than a bar
In all my years, I never gave ANY thought to the bar I used. I never cared… weight rooms, gyms, home…. A bar is a bar. With my home, I had an “economy” bar rated for 700 and then two junk straight bars that came with plate sets I acquired. Just assumed I’d toss a “cheap” bar when it broke. 700lb for my main bar seemed plenty strong Well let me tell you!! This bar is a game changer!! I love it! The knurl is so much better than the economy bar I had. No metal flaking off and I know this bar can withstand the work I put it through. Makes me want to lift more…. My wife was a doubter in spending money on a bar and she magically uses this one whoever I’m not looking! Love it…
