As used in Olympic and other professional/competitive lifting events. These weights can be dropped from head height - the steel centre hubs are built for impact. We've designed these bumpers for commercial crossfit use, so you can drop them on a single layer of 15mm rubber flooring for up to 30,000 cycles. This package includes:
-20kg steel Olympic bar, 30mm diameter, 1000lb rated. Rotating ends with brass bushing. Select the alloy steel bar option if you need a set for crossfit or Olympic lifting
-2x Lock jaw collars included
Great for athletics training gyms, powerlifting gyms, or healthclubs looking to add a professional lifting set to their range.
We've been supplying bumper plates since 2006, and we've tried all the different designs. What works for weightlifting might not stand up to cross training, where the reps are much higher and the plates are hitting the ground a lot more. Long lasting bumper plates differ in two main ways:
-The use of higher quality Shure hardness 92AhA rubber
-Adequate centre support with 200mm diameter steel hubs
These plates utilise a large central hub to distribute the impact load when the plate hits the floor. These bumpers wont twist/buckle on impact, so the centres won't fall out with long term use. We use high quality rubber which is able to handle multiple impacts in a commercial environment. As a result, these plates are rated for 30,000 cycles.
