Rogue 45LB Ohio Power Bar - Bare Steel Features

1

205,000 PSI Steel

The Ohio Power Bar’s 29MM diameter steel shaft boasts a tensile strength of 205,000 PSI, delivering superior rigidity and virtually zero whip/flex. Machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, the bar also features a snap-ring design and quality bronze bushings for a smooth, consistent feel.

2

Aggressive Knurl

The bar includes single powerlifting marks and a center knurl, each featuring a deep, coarse pattern that produces a reliable grip / stick without being sharp or abrasive. Perfecting this knurl pattern is both a science and an art. Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus on new Haas machines (built in the USA) and fine-tuned and personally tested by the Rogue team.

3

Three Finish Options

Depending on the look and feel you prefer, there is a version of the Ohio Power Bar right in your wheelhouse. The Zinc option (black shaft, bright sleeves) provides excellent corrosion resistance, the Bare Steel creates a classic look and natural feel, and the new Stainless Steel variation (with Chrome sleeves) strikes a balance between the two.

4

Lifetime Warranty

The Ohio Power Bar’s quality construction is backed by Rogue’s Lifetime Warranty against bending. This is a barbell equipped for high intensity, everyday use. 

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.

Please Note: Like any fine piece of machined steel, a bare steel barbell will require some upkeep. Occasionally brushing the bar down with 3-in-1 oil or WD-40 will create a beautiful patina look. This is how bars were made for decades and it really does produce an unmatched feel.

Love it!
I use this bar for squats, bench and press. The knurling is nice and agressive. The only draw back is if you have competition plates the sleeves are a bit rough and make noise when putting on and off.

A nice, sexy steel shaft.
Very nice bar. Knurl is nice and rough, but doesn’t cut me. Easy to grip. I love the smoothness of the unknurled part. During conventional deadlifts it’s like my shin is getting a massage. Great bar.

Amazing bar
Bought this bar over a month ago and couldn’t be happier. Great grip but doesn’t tear your hands apart. Stiff and little to no whip

Great bar!
Apply a little 3 in 1 oil every few months and the bar should last you a lifetime.

Best Bar I’ve ever used
This is the best bar I’ve ever used. Knurl is gripper doesn’t truly feel aggressive after a couple weeks and I haven’t need to do any maintenance yet

Good, but...
This is a good bar that is made in the USA. I bought it in November 2020 and I work out in my basement. The bar is already showing signs of rust.

I understand why there's a boneyard now because I can't find a single imperfection on my bar no matter how minor. The knurling is way too aggressive in my opinion but that's my preference and has nothing to do with the quality of the bar.
