Olympic lifting 167kg Bumper plates package, with plates rated to 30,000 cycles! As used in Olympic and other professional/competitive lifting events. These weights can be dropped from head height - the steel centre hubs are designed for high impact. We've designed these bumpers to handle the rigors of crossfit use, so they can be dropped on a single layer of 15mm thick rubber flooring for up to 30,000 cycles. This package includes:
1000lb bar, 220cm, rotating Olympic ends with brass bushing
2x Lock jaw collars included
Great for athletics training gyms, powerlifting, 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. Whats good for the occasional drop in a weightlifting environment won't last in a more rigorous cross training environment with much higher reps. High quality plates that can last the distance differ in two main ways:
The use of higher quality rubber
Adequate centre support, i.e. centre 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.
*Please note, this set comes with spring collars, not spin collars (pictured)
