Not all bumpers are created equal. Here's why your next bumper plates should be Fringe Sport bumpers:
Bumper plates come in a few standard sizes, and are sold in pounds. Fringe Sport economy 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|
|55 lbs ~ 25 kg||When the 45s just don't cut it, we have 55lb bumpers to add some serious weight to the bar.|
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.
How wide are these bumpers?
55's are 3.25", 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 pound bumper plates are 90 shA; the 23,35,45, and 55 pound 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 ten pound bumpers narrower than all the rest?
My bumpers smell. Do you carry bumpers that don't smell?
Sometimes the bumpers smell due to the way that they are made. It isn't permanent. The best remedy is to let them air out in the sun for about 5 days.
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. 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.
Can I drop the 10 pound bumpers like I see my favorite athletes do?
Maybe wait a couple months to send out a survey....or even a year. Hopefully I will finally recieve my equipment by then! I have made several orders from Fringe sports. Your poor company is in such disarray.
Lighter plates have a bit more bounce than ideal, but still greatly exceed expectations for price. In fact, the 45s drop close to dead bounce, so loving the value on those. Also, noise from the 45s is pretty low. Big plus. The fitting on the bar sleeve is perfect, excellently machined. Last, the look is on point. Not showy, just about getting to business.
We definitely think you have some of the better plates on the market today. We appreciate the sturdiness and durability, especially with the 10's and 15's because they don't fold over like tacos haha!
The bumpers look great and feel tough, as they should be. Just assembled the rack and can't wait to start using all the new gear. Great bang for your buck.
I needed some bumper plates that were accurate, cost effective, and slimmer to allow more weight loaded on the bar, and these check all the boxes!
