These are all the weights that you will need to get in Olympic lifting with bumper plates. Use the 10s to help with technique to start, and then as you get stronger you can move up to the 25s and 45s and really start pounding the ground with those weights. Traditional iron weights can be used to supplement this set if you need more weight.
For those that want to make their weight jumps a little smaller and want some additional rubber to add to the bars. The 15s by themselves are still mainly for technique, but their added weight definitely makes them sturdier than the 10 lb bumpers.
Who needs the 35 pounder? We threw that out in favor of another 45, to give you 20 more pounds to work with in this set. Because it still has the smaller weights, this is a great option for pretty much anybody that wants to work their way up to some heavy weights.

Why Choose OneFitWonder Bumper Plates?
Not all bumpers are created equal. Here's why your next bumper plates should be OFW bumpers:
OneFitWonder OFW bumper plates feature a steel insert that is designed to far outperform the brass bumpers used by the competition. A steel insert will take much more abuse without malforming- and it is machined to exact tolerances to fit all high-quality olympic bars.
OneFitWonder OFW bumpers use a rubber formulation that combines the ideal mix of low bounce with high durability. Some bumper plates bounce too much- they are potentially unsafe. Other bumpers are too brittle- and they easily chip and fall apart. Not OneFitWonder OFW bumper plates!
OneFitWonder OFW bumpers 10 and 15 pound bumpers are more stable because they have a high durabilty, "hooked" steel insert. This makes them more stable than most 10 or 15 pound bumpers- which are the most fragile bumper plates due to their thinness.
OneFitWonder OFW bumpers are thinner than many of the competing bumpers- so you can load more weight on your bar!
OneFitWonder OFW bumpers all have the same standard diameter- you can mix and match to load your bar.
Finally, OneFitWonder OFW bumper plates are backed by our no-questions-asked satisfaction guarantee- plus a 1 year warranty from the manufacturer. Use them and love them- or send them back free!

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...
Finally, bumper plates are also great for garage gym use- the rubber construction is much quieter than traditional metal construction.

Frequently Asked Questions
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 ; the 23,35,45, and 55 pound bumpers are 85
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?
The ten pound bumper plates are composed of a denser rubber than the other bumper plates, so that they resist taco'ing.
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?
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.
