The Ohio Bar - Cerakote Features

1

Cerakote 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 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.


2

190,000 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.

3

Machining & 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.

*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.

Great Quality
No complaints about product as advertised. Would be nice to have option to get it with the loaded sleeve made out of stainless and the bar Cerakoted. That wasn't available when I got mine...

Love it
Love this bar, got cerakote to deal with the climate in my gym space. Has held up very well. Knurl is a little smoother than I’m used to but I don’t mind.

Great feel bar
Whip is nice for deadlifts and not too much for squats. Solid all round bar which should be a staple in your home gym. One end cap was damaged but doesn't accept performance.

Good bar
I bought this as a Christmas present for my spouse, it came on time and has been a great addition to the gym. The knurl is grippy enough to not lose the bar on heavy lifts but not too aggressive that it rips up your hands. The bushings spin well to allow the weight to move when lifting. Overall I'm very satisfied with the Orange/Chrome Cerakote Ohio Barbell.

Yet again….
Another excerpt product from rogue. Rogue is slowly starting to occupy my garage with its equipment. I researched other company’s here in ontario as I was looking to upgrade my old Olympic bar ($80 fitness depot 4-5 years ago). Loving all my products from rogue. I went with them because of the obvious. Their equipment is used at the games, what more can you ask for in terms of putting their products to the test with the beasts at the games. They toss way more weight then I ever will which lead me to believe that this bar will last me forever. Looks great, performs great. The only thing I noticed (only being picky because of the cost) is the rogue logo has two small smudges as if the paint didn’t dry completely. Again, being picky but that’s what happens with high end products. Would reccomend this product to anyone looking to upgrade and buy equipment designed to last.
