Competition Bumper Plates are accurate to 0.1% and closely align to IWF specs, making them the perfect training plates for weightlifting. Sold in pairs and sets.
MATCH IWF SPECS (ALMOST…)
- These competition bumper plates don’t quite match IWF specs: they’re not IWF approved, but they DO check the key boxes: 450mm diameter, colour-coded, and guaranteed to +/- 0.1% of the claimed weight. The thing is, they’re made in pounds instead of kilograms because, well… #freedomunits. But, don’t let that rain on your parade, they still make excellent training plates for Olympic weightlifting.
- So, you wanted durable? Then, oh boy, you’ve got it with our competition bumper plates. The galvanized centre hub with its co-molded steel collar won’t spin or break from the rubber and uses an innovative method to securely lock the bolts in place. All this mumbo-jumbo to say that the hub is safeguarded against loosening and the competition bumper plates will scuff less over time.
- Alright, it’s time for science talk: the harder the material gets, the less bounce it will have. And since these competition bumper plates are made from high-density virgin rubber, they’re a huge step above crumb bumpers. Minimal bounce is ideal since it prevents excessive damage to your barbell and minimal shock to the plates, and makes for a faster transition between reps — because cardio is just lifting weights faster, right?
