Rogue Chan Bar - Cerakote

AU$645.00
* Required Options

Matt Chan Bar

The Cerakote version of the Matt Chan Bar takes the key elements from the original design and introduces an assortment of new features, each selected with input from the CrossFit legend himself. These changes include:

  • A new stainless steel shaft with a higher tensile strength of 200,000 PSI
  • Ultra-durable Cerakote color finish with photo-negative style Rogue and Chan logos directly on the shaft
  • Your choice of Black Cerakote or Chrome Sleeves

The Cerakote Chan Bar is manufactured in Columbus, Ohio, USA, and features black composite bushings, 16.50" of loadable sleeve length, and dual Powerlifting and Olympic knurl marks. As part of Matt’s customization, a center knurl is included for athletes who prefer a little extra “stick” when in 
the front rack position or back squatting. This center knurling is non-cerakoted stainless steel and passive in texture, so it gives a “true” feel without shredding the skin like more aggressive center knurls
 might.

  • 1Co-Developed with Matt Chan

    As a former firefighter and four-time Top 10 finisher at the CrossFit Games, Matt Chan is a man whose opinions tend to carry weight around here.
 We took great pride in bringing his original vision for a custom barbell to life several years ago, and we’ve gladly welcomed him back to Columbus to work on our design for this new Cerakote version, which we think is one of the coolest bars we've built to date.

  • 2New Cerakote Finish

    The new Chan Bar is finished using a polymer-ceramic composite coating called Cerakote, which has been popular for years in the gun industry for its remarkable durability in thin applications. This advanced finish can deliver superb abrasion/wear/corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc—while also enabling much greater flexibility in color choices and design. Available here in a gun-metal grey, the finish creates a very unique look in combination with the stainless steel shaft. Customers can also opt for Black Cerakote sleeves (with chrome as the other option).

  • 3New Stainless Steel Shaft

    By changing to a stainless steel shaft with this model, we’ve increased its tensile strength to 200,000 PSI, while also opening up a great new aesthetic dynamic with the Cerakote coating. Rogue and Matt Chan logos are now featured directly on the shaft in a photo-negative effect. These logos are placed on each side of the center knurl.

  • 4Rogue Machining and Assembly

    Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio, with painstaking attention to detail. We assemble the Chan 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.

  • 5Standard Knurl with Passive Center Knurl

    Carried over from the original Chan Bar, a center knurl is included for athletes who prefer a little extra “stick” when in 
the front rack position or back squatting. This center knurling is non-cerakoted stainless steel and passive in texture, so it gives a “true” feel without shredding the skin like more aggressive center knurls
 might. The bar also includes dual knurl marks for Powerlifting and Oly lifting, with the outer knurling spaced further apart to allow a wider stance on cleans and deadlifts without the knurling scraping the shins.

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.

Cleaning:The recommended maintenance is to use a plastic bristle brush and mild detergent to clean the knurl. Next, wipe the bar down with 3-in-1 oil. Finish by removing any excess oil with a dry towel.

*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 Chan Bar - Cerakote is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chan Bar 1.2 This is a great bar. It has two great features that I only appreciated more after having it and using it for a while; 1. The passive center knurl - is great for cleans and just enough knurl to help with cleans or shoulder to overhead movements without a shirt on. 2. The larger (21 inch) gap between outer knurling - I am constantly roughing up my quads and shins in various pulls, and this essentially eliminates those issues and translates to much more efficient bar movement. Can't say enough about this bar. If you're looking for a quality all-purpose barbell for the gym, this is it hands down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar for all around lifting I bought this bar out of the boneyard a few months back (Not the Cerakote version). It has been phenomenal and has been great for all around lifting. I do crossfit and it has obviously been great for that. But also for powerlifting as well. The center knurl is an awesome feature in my opinion. Only thing is that because of the extra space between knurled areas, your grip may be a little wide for sumo deadlift. If you want to keep your hands on the knurl, that is. But other than that, superb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Chan Is the Man Love this bar! I have had it for 3 months. I have only been lifting for about two years, so to be fair I do not have a ton to compare it to. I keep this bar at my local box and everyone comments on the aesthetics of it. Then the few who I do let use it love it as well and those few have decades of experience! What I love most is the Knurling starts slighting wider than most bars. No blood on my shins after DL and Snatches I also love the soft Knurling in the middle. I truly believe it helped me PR my Fran time. If it didn't I still looked cool doing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, versatile bar I bought this bar with the black cerakote on the sleeves about a year and a half ago. I don’t regret a single thing. My main purpose for this bar is for the big 3, but I’ve also comfortable used it for Olympic lifting. It’s stiff, yet still has decent whip. The standard knurling feels great in the bands and I also really like the center knurling on this bar: it’s passive and will stick to your shirt nicely for back squats. One thing: if you’re going for the black sleeves, expect the cerakote to slowly rub off every time you throw steel plates on those bad boys. If you can, use plates with a stainless steel insert to prevent additional weathering. Overall, I love this bar. It’s Exactly what I was hoping for and 1.5 years later, I can tell you she’s holding up nicely and still getting the job done.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great design, poor robustness Functionality/design of the the bar nails it. Nice controllable spin, knurls in the middle are a lifesaver when squatting without a shirt and provides a bit of extra grip for oly lifts and front squats. The extra space between outer knurls save the shins for sure. For robustness, or lack thereof, the bar looks super sharp out the box but heaven forbid you sweat on this thing. The polished/non-cerakoted areas rust quicker than I've ever seen a bar do so. I received/have been using it for about 3 wks. This bar will not be around for the long run. Very unfortunate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Center Knurl and Spacing This bar is worth it for the passive center knurl and extra wide spacing alone. The passive knurl allows for easy positioning on back squats as you can feel for the centering. The extra wide spacing makes keeping the bar close to your shins a much lass harrowing experience. I'm giving it four stars for two reasons. One, I'd have preferred a bit more whip. Two, I'd definitely have preferred a bit more rotation on the sleeves. Otherwise this is a great general purpose bar for most applications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features!!! I bought this barbell hoping that it would fit my needs. 100% satisfied. The knurl is a little more aggressive than my Operator bar and my shins are grateful for the added spacing of the knurl. The passive center knurl secures the bar in the front squat, yet it doesn’t tear the collar bone up like the OPB. So glad that I ordered it. Worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bar I’ve used! Have used several rogue bars, the new Chan bar makes hand placement quick, knurling is perfect for grip. Have zero complaints, worth the money!
