Not all bumpers are created equal, but Fringe Sport Color Bumper Plates stand apart.
How can I choose the bumper plates that are right for me?
Bumper plates come in a few standard sizes and are sold in pounds with kilogram conversion listed. All Fringe Sport bumpers are sold by the pound, and are great for beginners, experts, and everyone in between.
Here is a chart with rough pound and kilogram weights:
|Bumper Weight||Best Weight For:|
|10 lbs ~ 5 kg||Great for teaching or learning Olympic lifts.|
|15 lbs ~ 7 kg||Same uses as the 10s, but this offers greater durability at only a slightly heavier weight.|
|25 lbs ~ 11 kg||A very popular weight as they are very durable and throwing these on an Oly bar gives you 95 pounds (Fran Rx).|
|35 lbs ~ 16 kg||A great size for adding more weight on the bar.|
|45 lbs ~ 20 kg||The most popular size for gyms - 45's really let you load up your bar and make some serious strength gains.|
|55 lbs ~ 25 kg||When the 45s just don't cut it, we have 55lb bumpers to add some serious weight to the bar.|
What is a bumper plate?
A bumper plate is a weight plate for Olympic bars that is made almost entirely of rubber (with a steel or brass collar in the middle that accepts an Olympic bar).
Why bumper plates?
The "end state" of the Olympic lifts is overhead or at the shoulder. Many lifters drop the weights from overhead. Since bumper plates are almost entirely rubber, being dumped from the shoulder or overhead will not damage the weights, bar, floor, bystanders, the lifter, etc...
Bumper plates are also great for garage gym use- the rubber construction is much quieter than traditional metal construction.
What exercises can I do with bumper plates?
How wide are these bumpers?
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"
What is the durometer reading on these bumpers?
The 10 and 15 lb bumper plates are 90 shA; the 23,35,45, and 55 lb bumpers are 85 shA.
What does durometer mean?
Durometer is a measure of 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.
Why do different weight bumper plates have different durometer readings?
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.
What is the diameter of these bumpers?
What? Why are the 10 lb bumpers narrower than all the rest?
My bumpers are greasy? How can I get the grease off?
The bumpers are greased as a part of the manufacturing process. Sometimes the factory doesn't clean the plates well enough. Check out this blog on how to clean your bumper plates.
Can I drop the 10 pound bumpers like I see my favorite athletes do?
Drop away! We are extremely confident that our 10 pound bumper plates can handle being dropped, and they are backed by our fully comprehensive warranty for 1 year (just in case).
Are these plates low odor like the rest of your plates? If not how can I remove the smell?
Our amazing color 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!
