The Freedom Bar is a new, special edition colorway of our Ohio Cerakote Bar, featuring a red, white and blue shaft finish in an exclusive stars-and-stripes American flag pattern.
Like the Ohio Bar, the Freedom Bar is fully machined and assembled in Columbus, OH, and includes a 190,000 PSI tensile strength shaft, dual knurl marks, black composite bushings, and a lifetime warranty against bending.* This variation is only available with chrome sleeves.
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 remarkable 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.

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.
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.
