For the athlete who refuses anything but the best, this is your next Olympic barbell. The Rogue Euro 28MM Oly WL Bar is machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, using only top-tier European steel, with 10 sets of quality needle bearings, friction welded sleeves, and a polished chrome finish. Before leaving our factory, each IWF-standard bar goes through a rigorous testing process to ensure absolute precision–from exact weight and straightness to the consistency of its whip and spin. No other bar in the Rogue fleet, or in the industry, can call itself an upgrade over this one
At a minimum tensile strength of 215,000 PSI, the Euro Olympic WL Bar is the strongest in the Rogue arsenal, but that’s not the only reason we chose this ultra-durable steel. Over years of testing, many weightlifters have found that the raw materials used in EU steel also help produce a greater whip during snatches and cleans.
Using a process from the worlds of aviation and automotive manufacturing, the sleeves on the Euro Oly Bar are friction welded–creating a superior, forged-quality bond. This method is more precise than most joining techniques and helps prevent any changes in the integrity of the sleeve. Combined with 10 sets of top-quality needle bearings, the result is a barbell with a smooth, consistent, quieter spin.
The Euro Oly Bar is built to IWF standards and includes both Olympic knurl marks and a center knurl. The knurling itself features a full, uniform pattern with a medium intensity that won’t shred up your hands.
If you’re looking for the pinnacle of American-made Olympic bearing bars in the industry right now, this is it.
