Along with the firm but non-abrasive grip, the Stainless Steel Ohio Bar’s dual knurl marks optimize it for both Olympic lifts and Powerlifting—with the quality US steel and precision bronze bushings ensuring a smooth, consistent spin + a unique balance of whip and rigidity.
Like all of our bars bearing the “Ohio” name, we think this design represents more than just the Rogue brand. It’s a testament to where we work, who we are, and the pride we feel in making the best high-performance barbells in the industry.
Note on Stainless Steel: Barbells made from raw steel are not plated and therefore marks from the machining process may be visible.

This high tensile strength steel is manufactured in the USA 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, allowing for a very smooth finish.
Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio. A great deal of pride is built into each bar as the knurling process is an art. We spent months working on the knurl we believe to be the best for the Ohio Bar.
To test the knurl it is more a beer tasting process than exact measurement. There is a look and feel that go into testing every bar.
With no plating, the knurl on the Stainless Steel Ohio Bar is left exactly how we machined it, providing a great feel that cannot be achieved with other finishes. It’s similar to the knurl feel from a bare steel shaft, but with better corrosion resistance. The combination of a stainless steel shaft and chrome sleeves also creates a sharp look with few equals. Please Note: Rogue recommends using a synthetic bristle brush, NOT a steel brush, to clean a stainless steel shaft. Steel on steel can cause rusting over time.

The Ohio Bar is assembled with bronze bushings, which act as bearing surfaces between the bar sleeve and bar shaft. This is a very robust way of building a barbell, and can produce a smooth, consistent spin not possible with lesser import bars. Each bar comes with an “Ohio Bar Card” that has the initials of the Rogue team member that built it.
The multi-purpose Ohio Bar will have normal “whip” during Olympic weightlifting and enough stiffness to hold for heavy Powerlifting. The steel in this bar is proven as an excellent choice for weightlifters.
