How It's Made
1

FRICTION WELDING

The collars of the sleeves are friction welded, creating the strongest sleeves in the industry. This bond is as strong as if machined from a single piece of steel, while saving on waste and cost. 

Rogue Work Hardening

Rogue Work Hardening

Our patented, proprietary process more than doubles the durability and lifespan of the barbell shaft compared to our competitors. 

State-of-the-art Gauging
3

State-of-the-art Gauging

We use gauging normally employed in the aerospace industry to ensure that every bar that makes it to a customer is exactly as designed.

Barbell Durability

RUST RESISTANCE

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.

BARBELL DURABILITY

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.

F SCALE™ APPLICATION

How a barbell is used will affect its durable lifespan and it's a key factor in determining what type of F Rating™ might be suitable for your gym's needs. This graph correlates the F Rating™ of a barbell with different types of usage in order to predict the durable lifespan. Using this data, we are able to make recommendations on what F Rating™ is appropriate for different training situations. With a rating of F10-R, the Ohio Bar is rated to last 20 years in a high volume CrossFit gym and will outlast a lifetime of lifting in an Olympic Weightlifting gym, a home gym or a Powerlifting gym.

This is a great bar
I couldn't be happier. The knurling is perfect. It's grippy without being so aggressive that it rips your hands. Just the right amount of bite. Shipped fast and packaging was great. If you're looking for an excellent bar from a quality company, you have found it
Yes, I recommend this product

Lives up to the hype
Having previously only used cheaper bars at commercial gyms, the difference is night and day. Knurling is super grippy but doesn't feel like it's going to rip my hands up doing high volume. Stainless steel feels like it's going to last forever. The very light texture on the sleeves also helps the collars hold the weight on really securely, but still super easy to get weights on and off. Overall very happy with this purchase, and think this bar 100% lives up to the hype.

Not what I expected from Rogue
Today I received my barbell in the mail and chose the Ohio bar because all of the great things I've heard about it. Was disappointed to see it arrive rusted. This is the second issue I've had with the quality control of their products.

Not as expected
I bought this bar for myself two years ago, when Rogue offered both stainless sleeves and shaft. It’s been inside for more than one of those years and only been in a garage for 10 months and is already starting to rust. I paid a significant premium for this bar and it makes me wonder if this thing is really as advertised.g

Best all around bar, period.
This bar is awesome. I got the Stainless Steel shaft. I use it for CrossFit (w/ Olympic lifting) daily. The knurling is hands down the best I have ever felt. It is very “grippy” due to the dense, tight pattern of the knurling, but it doesn’t cut. It gives the benefits of an aggressive knurl pattern without making you pay the price with torn up hands. Stainless Steel gives the best feel and is definitely the way to go. The bushing bearings provide plenty of spin for Oly lifts under most circumstances.
Yes, I recommend this product

Disappointed regarding the processing quality
I got the Ohio Bar in Stainless Steel and expexted not only a great bar to lift with but also a superb bar regarding the processing quality. I used to work with CNC milling and turning machines in Germany and I know what quality management and control means. Therefore I was disappointed to get a bar where quality control has clearly failed. This is nothing that limits the usecase of the bar but something I disagree with regarding the high price of this bar and and it is also disappointing when you consider the quality claim rogue claims to have. In my opinion one has to get a discount for this bar because of poor processing quality. Nothing rogue should be proud of. I also got a SZ Curl bar which is perfectly processed. Should be the case with the Ohio Bar as well.
