Our contrast bumper plate sets are not your typical bumper plate. We've taken our black bumper plate sets and given them a sleek, color-coded upgrade.
Each pair has colored lettering on both sides to help you differentiate between the weights in your collection. These bumper plates are for beginners and experts alike, and work well in your garage gym, community gym, or anywhere you choose to throw your barbell around.
Specifically formulated for durability, low bounce, and high density, our Contrast Bumper Plates are made of virgin rubber and are meant to be thrown around and dropped time and time again on your barbell.
Fringe Sport Contrast Bumper Plate Sets are manufactured to go toe to toe with any bumper plate on the market.
Most importantly, our Contrast Bumper Plate Sets go through the most customer-focused manufacturing, quality control and shipping process in the industry so you can rest assured that you are getting the highest quality plates and we are taking the utmost care to ensure they arrive in pristine condition!
- Extremely durable virgin rubber will last for years in a garage or affiliate.
- Expertly designed stainless steel "hooked" insert in the 25 lb, 35 lb, 45 lb, and 55 lb plates (see picture above) remains firmly seated, making our bumpers Texas tough.
- Higher density means thinner bumpers and you can fit more weight on the bar for more gains.
- Low, dead bounce makes these safe in tight spaces.
- Plates are in pounds and are sold in sets and pairs.
- 3 Year Warranty on 25's, 35's, 45's and 55's; 1 Year warranty on 10's and 15's.
55's are 3.2", 45's are 2.9'', 35's are 2.35'', 25's are 1.87'' 15's are 1.2'', and the 10's are 1.05''
The 10 and 15-pound bumper plates are 90; the 25, 35, 45 and 55-pound bumpers are 85
Durometer is a measure of the hardness of a material. It ranges from 0-100, and the higher the rating the harder the material, and the higher the material's resistance to indentation. Anything above 65 is acceptable for bumper plates. Our plates are considered to be excellent.
In general, the lighter bumper plates have a higher durometer reading because they need to be more rigid to withstand the stress of being dropped. Heavier plates have more surface area to distribute the stress, so they do not need to be as hard.
The ten-pound bumper plates are purposefully 5mm narrower than the other bumper plates so that when you have 10's loaded on the bar, plus other bumpers, the 10-pound plates impact the ground a split second later than the other bumpers. Since the 10-pound plates have the least surface area and are thus the weakest bumpers, this saves stress on your 10 pounders!
The bumpers are greased as a part of the manufacturing process. Sometimes the factory doesn't clean the plates well enough. Here's what we do to de-grease these bad boys:
We wash the bumpers about 3 times, with paper towels, soap, and water. If that doesn't work, then we use a de-greaser spray that can be purchased at a local home improvement store.
Drop away. We are confident that our 10-pound bumper plates can handle the abuse, and they are backed by our fully comprehensive warranty for 1 year just in case.
Some of our plates go through random spot checks by different quality assurance teams. The star simply means your plate passed inspection. There are no differences in quality between plates with or without stars!
Our amazing contrast plates are indeed low odor, as they are made the same way the rest of our best on the market plates are made. If you find there is a smell to the plates when they arrive at your house, you can wash them with warm water and dish soap, leave them outside in the sun for 2- 3 days and then you can spray with Armor All or mineral oil (a very light coat) to remove the smell from the plates!
