What Sets the Cerakote Finish Ohio Bar Apart:

  • 1Cerakote 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.

  • 2190,000 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.

  • 3Machining & 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.

Fast Rogue Shipping
Orders placed by 3PM ship the same day. The Rogue Shipping System allows you to track your order from the time you place it to the time it hits your door. Order today, track today.

*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.

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. See our Ohio Bar Care Page for more info.

The Ohio Bar - Cerakote is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 287.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the ROGUE Bar! We have been using this bar in our home gym for over a month now and it’s great! We use it specifically for bench press, and skull crushers (not deadlifts or anything where it may get slammed to the floor.) It works great and looks good in blue. The bar itself seems to be slightly smaller in diameter than our other (not ROGUE, olympic) bars, but that’s okay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It took a little, but it's grown on me I have been building up my home gym over the last few months, and started with this bar to replace an old, rusted, low quality garage sale find I had in my garage. This bar is so, so much better than that. That being said, I did have some initial regrets when I first got the bar. I thought, "Oh, man, I should have just spent more for the stainless steel Ohio Power Bar." After a couple months of using it, though, those regrets have faded out and I'm just really happy I got it. Still, some things to think through: --The bar looks amazing. That was the one thing I never had any doubt about. I got the black with chrome sleeves, and it's just so cool looking. --BUT, the Cerakote finish will scuff and scratch. It just will. My bar is still pretty dang new and it already has marks on the bar from setting it on my non-UHMW J-cups that I had on my old squat stand. I now do have UHMW lining and I don't think (as far as I can tell) that it's scuffed any further since. --The knurling is not as aggressive as I expected or hoped (and the spin isn't the best). This is a matter of preference. I actually do like the feeling of the bar sort of digging into my hand; it makes the grip feel more secure. --BUT, the Cerakote gives the bar a sort of tacky texture that really makes up for the less aggressive knurling. This is an area where I've come around. I had always been a bare steel guy, but I wanted the lower maintenance and color of Cerakote, and now I really have come to like the feel of it better anyway. Even in the summer, no AC, sweating, I haven't really felt the need for chalk. Bottom line is this is a fine multipurpose bar, but I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with the Cerakote. I love the look and feel of it, but I hate feeling like the coating is "fragile" and will scuff so easily.
