Cast in northern Michigan by Cadillac Casting, Inc., these ductile iron Rogue Kettlebells represent our new, exclusive line-up of American-made KBs. The series is currently available in 12 weight increments, from 9 LB to 88 LB, and features a black E-Coat finish. Debossed weight indications are marked on one side (in both LB and KG), with Rogue branding on the other.
Significantly more durable than traditional gray iron with a higher tensile strength and yield strength + greater corrosion resistance.
Known for its excellent adhesion, even coverage and toughness, our E-coat finish is applied in a thin durable layer that allows the texture of the casting to be felt while still being easy to clean.
|Gloss||~22 GU Rating|
These KBs have a higher gloss appearance (approx 22 gloss units, or “semi gloss”) than our powder coat KBs [0.5 to 1.5 GU, or “low gloss”).
As noted above, Cadillac’s use of single-piece ductile cast iron creates a kettlebell that is stronger and tougher than standard gray cast iron. The electrically-applied E-coat finish—noted for its superior adhesion and corrosion resistance—also goes on thinner than a traditional powder coat allowing for a lustrous finish without losing the underlying texture of the casting. A flat, machined base allows for steady storage with no wobble, and the handle diameter varies from 1.2” to 1.5”, depending on the weight.
We’re proud to have developed this line with the team at Cadillac Casting, a privately owned Midwest foundry with nearly 100 years of history in metal casting, and an unmatched reputation for quality.
The town of Cadillac, Michigan has a long and storied manufacturing history, and Cadillac Casting, Inc., has been a big part of it, designing and producing a wide variety of complex and safety-critical components for the automotive industry and other industrial clients since the 1920s. This reputable, privately owned foundry employs 400 highly skilled workers, and they were more than equipped to produce the tooling for our kettlebells in-house.
All sizes of the E-Coat Rogue Kettlebell are cast in ductile iron, aka nodular cast iron, which contains strong graphite nodules that make it considerably tougher than standard gray iron. Ductile iron is regularly used to make automotive components, wheels, gear boxes, and machine frames, and its superior tensile strength, yield strength, and corrosion resistance makes it an ideal option for a long-lasting, extremely robust kettlebell.
This electrically-applied paint coating was also initially developed for the automotive industry, due to its excellent adhesion, even coverage, and corrosion resistance. As a wet application, our gloss E-coat goes on thinner than powder coating, resulting in a smooth feel that retains more of the natural grit of the casting. While E-Coat Kettlebells will hold chalk, they are easier to clean than traditional powder coat KBs.
Because of the E-Coat finish, these Rogue Kettlebells have a semi-gloss appearance and a gloss rating of approx. 22 GU (gloss units), considerably above that of our standard powdercoat KBs, which rate between 0.5 and 1.5 GU. The black shine/gloss of the finish is complemented in the design by debossed lettering/numbering for the weight indications (both LB and KG) on one side of the bell, and Rogue branding on the other.
Whether you’re purchasing a single set of KBs for your garage gym or outfitting a large facility, this first series of Rogue E-Coat Kettlebells is available in a wide range of weight increments to suit any goal—from lightweight beginner bells (starting at 9LB / 4KG) up to 88 LBS / 40 KG. The handle diameters, noted below, range from 1.2” to 1.5”.Please Note: The actual weight of each kettlebell is designed to match the KG weight. So for example, the 35LB E-Coat Kettlebell is actually spec'd to weigh exactly 16KG with a +3% / -0% tolerance.
Rogue E-Coat Kettlebell Handle Diameters:
9LB - 18LB: 1.2"
