Bumper Plates tough enough for commercial gyms, priced for home gyms.
These commercial grade non-smelly, DB (dead bounce) virgin rubber lb bumper plates have a thick stainless steel inert ring with 3 anchor points to prevent common bumper breakdowns. Ideal for recreational and competitive lifters alike who don’t want to break the bank!
Why choose Bumpers?
The advantage of bumper plates over conventional metal weight plates or rubber-coated metal plates are threefold:
They will survive being dropped on a regular basis from overhead
Bumper plates are designed to survive being dropped. The rubber is much thicker than just a coating and the hubs are sturdier and wider. Our bumper plates are solid rubber and have held up in competitive weightlifting gyms.
Steel plates come in a variety of non-standardized diameters, so if you are doing any exercises pulling from the floor, such as deadlifts, or cleans, unless you have 45lb plates on each side you will be pulling from a deficit.
The number one advantage of bumpers is safety for the lifter. A lifter who hesitates to dump a bad lift because they’re afraid of damage to the floor or the equipment is more likely to get hurt. Bumpers take any worry about damage completely out of the equation. Bumpers are most frequently used for performing the Olympic Lifts – The Snatch, Clean and Jerk, as well as supplementary movements such as power cleans, and jerks.
