Grab a set of our American made crumb bumper plates and take your lifts to the next level. Crumb bumpers have been a staple at affiliates for years because of their incredible durability. Crumb bumper plates are made from recycled tires and steel inserts, for a bumper plate that can withstand tons of punishment.
Recycled crumb bumpers are constructed using a thick, less dense mix of rubber than many other bumper brands. This rubber mix results in a bumper that is a bit wider than many other brands. This additional width, combined with the forgiving low density of the rubber mix, results in a high-bounce bumper that resists cracking or "taco-ing".
For a durable, American-made bumper, you can choose from our Fringe Sport branded plates or Hi-Temp branded.

Not all bumpers are created equal. Here's why your next bumper plates should be Hi-Temp bumpers:
Bumper plates come in a few standard sizes, and are generally sold in pounds or kilograms. Hi-Temp bumpers are sold by the pound. 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|
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).
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.
