Product Description

RACKABLE SHORT BAR

Designed as a “shorty” version of our flagship Cerakote Ohio Bar, the 15KG Rogue C-70S Bar combines the multipurpose use of the Ohio Bar with the compact design of our C-70 Bar, while still allowing the bar to be racked in a power rack or squat stand. This allows you to perform all strength movements, from the squat, bench press, and deadlift, to Olympic lifts‒clean and snatch, while in the tight confines of a home or garage gym, or a busy training facility.


EFFICIENCY MEETS FUNCTIONALITY

The compact design doesn’t equate to lifting light weight. With a loadable sleeve length of almost 9" this bar has the capacity for (3) 45lb competition style bumpers or (5) standard iron plates on each end, while still leaving ample room for collars. The 52” spacing between the sleeves allows this bar to be racked on any standard power rack or squat stand. This barbell allows for a wide range of strength movements from the rack or floor, all within limited space constraints.

For those looking to maximize the weight on shorter sleeves, the Rogue USA Olympic Plates or Rogue KG Calibrated Plates will allow you to exceed a 700lb+ total bar load.


CRAFTED FOR VERSATILITY

Every C-70S Bar is specially machined and assembled in Columbus, OH using US steel that has been proven optimal for both Olympic lifting and Powerlifting. The 190,000 PSI tensile strength shaft features dual knurl marks for Olympic Weightlifting (IWF) and Powerlifting (IPF), and our signature Ohio knurling pattern that is carefully refined for a solid yet non-abrasive grip suitable for multi-purpose strength training.


UNMATCHED REPUTATION

For over a decade, Rogue has set the industry standard as making the best and most durable barbells. With the Rogue C-70S edition, we've taken our flagship barbell to new heights, delivering one of our most versatile bars to date. This bar represents more than just the Rogue brand. Its name is a testament to where we work, who we are, and the pride we feel in continuing to make the best weightlifting bars in the market.


Patented

Please Note: The C-70S weighs 15KG only with collars included.

How It's Made
Rogue Work Hardening
1

Rogue Work Hardening

Our patented, proprietary process more than doubles the durability and lifespan of the barbell shaft compared to our competitors. 

Cerakote Shaft Finish
2

Cerakote Shaft Finish

Cerakote delivers outstanding corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc—while also providing many color options. This polymer-ceramic composite coating was first popularized in the firearm industry for its unique durability in thin applications

Bright Zinc Sleeve Coating
3

Bright Zinc Sleeve Coating

A bright zinc finished sleeve contrasts with the black zinc shaft, adding both oxidation resistance and a classic look to the bar.

STATE-OF-THE-ART GAUGING
4

STATE-OF-THE-ART GAUGING

We use gauging normally employed in the aerospace industry to ensure that every bar that makes it to a customer is exactly as designed.

Barbell Durability

RUST RESISTANCE

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.

BARBELL DURABILITY

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.

F SCALE™ APPLICATION

How a barbell is used will affect its durable lifespan and it's a key factor in determining what type of F Rating™ might be suitable for your gym's needs. This graph correlates the F Rating™ of a barbell with different types of usage in order to predict the durable lifespan. Using this data, we are able to make recommendations on what F Rating™ is appropriate for different training situations. With a rating of F16-R, the Rogue C-70S Bar is rated to outlast a lifetime of lifting (50+ years) in a facility or home gym.

Key Features of the Rogue C-70S Bar:

Game-Changing Rackability
1

Game-Changing Rackability

As the biggest feature of its design, the C-70S can be racked conveniently on most standard power racks / squat stands, dramatically improving its functional benefits over most standard short bars. Additionally, while the sleeves are shorter on this model, the 52” of spacing between them is the same as a full-length barbell, allowing athletes to perform movements that haven’t traditionally been practical with short bars, such as the snatch and overhead squats. It should be noted that the 8.875” of loadable sleeve length is roughly half that of the Ohio Bar (16.4”) and slightly less than the original non-rackable C-70 Bar (12”). There is no center knurl, and the Rogue logo is included in the center of the shaft as part of the Cerakote finish.

SPACE-SAVING EFFICIENCY
2

SPACE-SAVING EFFICIENCY

The advantages of a short bar go beyond just a home gym. In large gyms, the design of the C-70S allows more athletes to train simultaneously, and in a cramped garage gym, the shorter shaft (72” vs the 86.75” of a full-length Ohio Bar) enables full Olympic lifting movements—including proper hand placement on the snatch grip—with more room to spare and easier storage between workouts.

F16-R DURABILITY RATING
3

F16-R DURABILITY RATING

Like the full-length Ohio Bar, the C-70S is manufactured in the USA and equipped with dual knurl marks, quality composite bushings, and a 28.5mm, 190,000 PSI tensile strength steel shaft. Each shaft is treated with our exclusive Rogue Work Hardening (RWH™) process for superior fatigue resistance. With its short sleeves, there is also significantly less stress put on the shaft on each drop. As a result, the C-70S scores a rating of F16-R in F-Scale durability testing, the highest mark of any barbell we’ve tested.

CERAKOTE SHAFT FINISH
4

CERAKOTE SHAFT FINISH

All of our Rogue C-70S Bars feature a black Cerakote shaft finish. Widely used by firearm manufacturers for its durability in thin applications, this ceramic-based coating can offer superior abrasion, wear, and corrosion resistance over time—up to 100x that of traditional black zinc.

Superfast shipping. Nice bar to hold.
Bought this bar with a set of bumpers - it was my first time ordering from Rogue Australia. I was very impressed with the shipping speed! It came within a week! The bar is nice to hold, the knurling and cerakote finish is amazing and adds to the comfort. Downside though is a scratched my hand lifting the end - similar to another review here there was a chip on the sleeve so the finish wasn't perfect and there's a sharp end to it - almost like a needle. I understand that chips/dings are inevitable with use but its unfortunate to find on a brand new bar. I'll either need to file it down or cover in duct tape.

Rogue Fitness - Rogue C-70S Bar
Bought this bar a couple months ago. The shorter bar is perfect for my smaller home gym. I can still load up plenty of weight on the shorter sleeves. High quality. Don't hesitate getting this for your home gym! (Picked up some more 10 pound plates at the same time!)

Perfect bar for tight spaces.
Got this to go with my half rack in my tiny apartment, perfect. The cerakote finish is stunning and knurling is grippy. However was disappointed that it also came with a chip on the sleeve. Not good considering it is not cheap, and the fact that I travelled 8 hours and paid additional baggage allowance just to get this.

Best bar I’ve hold
This is the best bar functionally for the price compared to other bars I have from less expensive to more expensive. Knurling is aggressive just the right amount and very grippy. Spin is not the smoothest, it makes some noise but not a big problem and spin very well. The length of sleeves are just right for what I’m going to use it for. Very well packaged and nice finish, except there is some scratches in the middle of the shaft when I just took it out. I’m a little disappointed since it’s brand new. 4 stars just for that. Otherwise it is a 9.5/10 bar for me

Short in space..perfect short bar
So far, I’m digging this bar. My gym is a 2 car garage so I’m trying to maximize the space as much as possible. Brownie points that it’s rackable which makes it even more versatile. As with all rogue products, quality is above and beyond! Only down fall is that I wished they made a rackable version of a 28mm bar!!! ROGUE IF YOURE READING THIS, PLEASE MAKE A 28mm JUST LIKE C70s.
