The Ohio Bar - Black Oxide

The Rogue Ohio Bar Black Oxide is a top-of-the-line barbell from the premier weightlifting company, Rogue Fitness. Featuring a black oxide shaft, this barbell can handle whatever lifts you take it for, ranging from powerlifting to Olympic lifts. Its 28.5mm shaft is made from a unique 190 KSI tensile strength steel that provides an optimal combination of whip and rigidity and is surrounded by a practical black manganese phosphate coating to improve grip and protect the steel from corrosion. The bar also includes dual knurl marks for both power and Olympic lifting, with a deep diamond knurling for increased grip as well as reduced knurl pores to prevent slippage during specific Olympic lifts. The bar is exceptionally strong—it can take up to 1500lbs before reaching maximum capacity. Plus, Rogue Fitness provides a lifetime guarantee against any breakage of the bar shaft, offering extra peace of mind. With all these features combined, the Rogue Ohio Bar Black Oxide is one of Rogue Fitness’s best barbells—it’s perfect for any serious weightlifter who wants to reach their peak performance.
