Rogue Cerakote Ohio Deadlift Bar Released

Rogue Cerakote Ohio Deadlift Bar Released

Rogue Fitness has released a new Cerakotefinish Ohio Deadlift Bar that only adds to the large collection of exceptional barbells. Rogue has taken it's already outstanding Ohio Deadlift Bar design and has updated it to last through just about any condition. Read the full review.

Product Summary

The latest version of the Ohio Deadlift Bar introduces four new Cerakote color finishes, with your choice of a black, red, blue, or OD green shaft. All options also include the Rogue logo on the center of the shaft and black Cerakote sleeves.

Like the original ODB, the Cerakote model is machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, and precision-engineered for the needs of the competitive deadlifter. The bar’s 190,000 PSI steel shaft is designed with a comparatively thin diameter (27MM) and longer overall length (90.50″ – just within most powerlifting federation standards). This combination creates a power bar that is both easier to grip and better equipped for producing maximum whip/flex when pulling. For many powerlifters, that greater flex means being able to pull from a higher point before the plates break off the floor, potentially increasing the amount of weight that can be lifted in the process.

The Ohio Deadlift Bar’s sleeves feature a quality snap ring construction–far superior to the cheaply produced bolt-and-pin style sleeves of some other brands. The powerlifting knurl marks on this bar are a bit deeper / more aggressive than our Ohio Power Bar, but machined in the same pattern. There is no center knurl.

The new Ohio Deadlift Bar is finished using a polymer-ceramic composite coating called Cerakote, which has been popular for years in the gun industry for its remarkable durability in thin applications. This advanced finish can deliver superb abrasion/wear/corrosion resistance over time–100X that of standard black zinc–while also enabling much greater versatility in color choices and design. The Cerakote Deadlift Bar comes in four colorways–black, red, blue, and OD green–each paired with black sleeves and Rogue branding on the center of the shaft.

This steel used for the Ohio Deadlift Bar is manufactured in the US and has proven to be one of the best steel variants for a competition power bar. Each barbell shaft is ground and polished prior to machining, enabling a consistent smooth surface. With this design, we also created a shaft with a thinner diameter (190,000 PSI) and longer length (90.50″), optimizing the bar’s flex/whip for high-performance deadlifts.

Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio, with painstaking attention to detail. A snap ring construction and quality bronze bushings ensure a smooth, consistent performance. The powerlifting knurl marks are a bit deeper / more aggressive than our Ohio Power Bar, but machined in the same pattern. There is no center knurl.
