Combining a stainless steel, 200,000 PSI tensile strength shaft with chrome sleeves and quality needle bearings, this version of the Rogue Pyrros Women’s Olympic WL Bar ranks among the best in the industry for feel, durability, and performance. Each 15KG bar is machined and assembled in Columbus, OH, and includes an exclusive Rogue knurl pattern that’s precision-cut for a firm grip without the sharpness or abrasiveness of many import bars.
Rogue spent months researching and testing high strength stainless steel alloys, culminating in the creation of the world-record setting Elephant Bar used at the 2016 Arnold Strongman Classic. This bar handled one of the greatest loads in history due to the length of the shaft and sleeves as well as the use of 1,000LB of 2″ thick steel plates. That very same steel went into making our 25MM Pyrros Stainless Steel Women’s Olympic Bar, and it’s a difference you can instantly feel.
Rogue also offers the Women’s Olympic WL Bar in Bright Zinc or Polished Chrome finish, available here.
The Pyrros Oly Bar is made from a high-strength, stainless steel alloy, producing a shaft with a minimum tensile strength of 200,000 PSI. Selected for its optimal “whip” and “flex”. With no plating, the knurl is left exactly how we machined it, providing a natural feel that is less reliant on chalk, with better corrosion resistance than bare steel. 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.
Every Pyrros Bar is machined in Columbus, Ohio, on new Haas machines that are built in the USA. Each shaft is ground and polished prior to machining and individually tested and straightened to within 0.015″ (0.38MM). Each sleeve is machined to our exacting standards from a single piece of steel. After machining, all parts are gauged to ensure optimum performance.
In our Barbell Assembly Department, the shaft is again tested and straightened and the components of each bar are weighed together. Once the weight standard of +15 grams/-7.5 grams is met, the bar is assembled by hand followed by an individual test for straightness and reliable spin.
A national hero in Greece, Pyrros Dimas owns three World Weightlifting Championships along with three gold medals from the 1992, 1996, and 2000 Olympic Games. He has few equals in the sport, so designing a barbell up to his standards was both a privilege and a great challenge. The bar includes an original end-cap design that pays homage to Pyrros’s Greek heritage and Olympic triumphs.
