Rogue 29mm Stump Bar – Overview
Small yet outstanding compact barbell provides you the same functions and benefits as a typical sized barbell. Rogue manufactures shorter versions of the stainless steel Ohio Power Bar made in the USA. Though shorter, you can still train with them as you would with a full-length bar. These barbells can be racked smoothly on most standard power racks and give you the feel and the function of a typical power bar without the need for maximum loadable sleeve length.
They are furnished with quality bronze bushings, dual knurl marks, and a friction-welded one-piece sleeve design. These bars mostly use Cerakote shaft finish. Carakote is widely used by firearm manufacturers because of its durability in thin applications and is 100x more abrasion, wear, and corrosion resistance over time than traditional black zinc.

Rogue 29mm Stump Bar
The Rogue 29mm Stump Bar is the shorter version of the stainless steel Ohio Power Bar and is constructed with the same 29mm diameter, with little-to-no flex shaft (200,000 PSI), bronze bushings, and aggressive knurl pattern. It is perfect for home gym owners who train in narrow quarters and don’t need full-length sleeves for their powerlifting movements. Though shorter, it can still be loaded to over 500 lbs with thinner plates such as the USA Olympic Plates or Calibrated LB Steel Plates.
It has a tensile strength of 200,000 PSI which means it has excellent rigidity and practically zero whip/flex. The bar comprises single powerlifting marks and a center knurl, each highlighting a deep, coarse pattern that delivers a dependable grip/stick without being harsh or abrasive.
Rogue C-70S Bar
Also shorter than the 20 kg Ohio Bar, the Rogue C-70S Bar is the rackable version of the original C-70 short bar and features a Cerakote shaft finish and chrome sleeves. This compact 72” design can benefit anyone training in tight quarters, be it a small garage gym or busy training facility, with about 15” of space-saving efficiency versus a full-length bar.
The C-70S is produced in the USA and is furnished with dual knurl marks, quality composite bushings, and a 28.5mm, 190,000 PSI tensile strength steel shaft. It has no center knurl, and the Rogue logo is formed in the center of the shaft as part of the Cerakote finish. The C-70S can be racked effortlessly on most standard power racks or squat stands.
Rogue C-70 Bar
The Rogue C-70 Bar is produced for competition use in the CrossFit Games and allows athletes to be spaced closer together with its shorter overall length (69″). This bar has knurl marks for both Olympic and Powerlifting grips, and the distance between collars is 43″ versus the standard 52″.
This short barbell supported 400+ pound deadlifts during the Men’s Finals of the CrossFit Games competition. The C-70 Bar features the same 28.5MM diameter, American 190,000 PSI steel, bronze bushings, and dual knurl marks as the standard-length Ohio Bar and is backed by a three-year warranty against bending.
Rogue C-68S Bar
The C-68S Bar is among the most potent barbells Rogue has ever built, gaining an F-Scale rating of F-12R in durability testing. The Rogue C-68S Bar is about 11” shorter than the standard women’s Bella Bar. Still, the features and functionality are not sacrificed. The space-saving efficiency formed by the 68.25” shaft opens up lanes for more athletes to train in the same space simultaneously.
The gap between the sleeves is also a standard 51.5”, enabling you to rack the bar on any standard rack and execute movements that haven’t traditionally been observed with short bars, such as the snatch and overhead squats. The C-68S can benefit any woman training in tight quarters, a small garage gym, or a busy training facility.
