From The Manufacturer

Rogue Pyrros Bar – Stainless Steel WL Bar
Certified by the International Weightlifting Federation

While developing a design for a new Olympic bearing bar, Rogue had the privilege of working with the most decorated weightlifter of all time, three-time Olympic gold medalist Pyrros Dimas. The Greek legend laid out everything he would look for in an ideal barbell—including (a) a slightly more aggressive knurl, and (b) a more controlled spin that lets him feel connected to the weight throughout the lift. We provided him with bars made from different types of steel, multiple different knurl textures, and different sleeve lubricants. After lifting on all of them, he gave his feedback on each of the parameters, including which steel had the best whip. At the end of the day, we made a bar that combined all of his top picks. When we showed him what we’d come up with, his response was better than we could have imagined. “It’s Perfect,” he said. “You should call it the Pyrros Bar.” And so we did.

The Pyrros Bar is now an official, IWF Certified barbell. The final design combines a stainless steel, 200,000 PSI tensile strength shaft with 10 quality needle bearings and a choice of chrome-plated or stainless steel sleeves (the all-stainless Pyrros Bar is the top-end 28mm barbell that Rogue now produces). The unique knurl texture on these bars was chosen unanimously by two members of the USA Weightlifting World Championship team, along with Pyrros himself, from a pool of six options. For the bearings, we selected a more viscous lubricant to create the controlled spin that Pyrros prefers.

In the strength world, approval from the International Weightlifting Federation is the equivalent of a restaurant getting its Michelin stars, so we’re proud to include a new IWF Cerakote logo on the shaft of the latest Pyrros Bars, along with additional IWF branding on the endcaps.

Note on Stainless Steel: Barbells made from raw steel are not plated and therefore marks from the machining process may be visible.

What Real Customers Had To Say At Rogue Fitness

Positive Reviews

“I held one of these bars a couple times and immediately knew it was going to be the one I wanted to get. The spin is great, easy to turn but not too easy, and the knurling will keep your hands glued to the bar no problem. Just keep in mind, before you buy, that the knurling is really aggressive so you might need to wait until you have a little time for your hands to get used to it before you start using it regularly in training.”

“It’s honestly perfect. I’m not sure what I would improve.”

“The knurling is amazing on this barbell. No chalk needed. Whip is amazing. I feel really connected to the bar when I do the oly lifts. I was using a Rep Gladiator Olympic Bar and the Pyrros is major upgrade. The only complaint I have is that one of the sleeve collars has a minor scratch when I received the bar but honestly the bar is going to get banged up and bound to have scratches on the sleeves so I ain’t gonna knock it down a star for such a minor cosmetic flaw. This bar is the best barbell I have in my garage gym and will be utilized every day I do the oly lifts. Rogue always got that amazing quality on point.”

Negative Reviews

“In all reality the value compared to something like the Ohio Bar – it’s not going to make a functional difference in your training if you know what you’re doing. I wanted the center knurl, and I wanted an aggressive stainless steel shaft. It is what it says it is, the best. But in terms of value I definitely wouldn’t recommend it to most people, this was a splurge for myself. I don’t regret it and will keep it, but just know that you can survive with the Ohio Bar haha.”
