What You Need to Know About the VTX Bumper Plates

The VTX Bumper Plates are full rubber with stainless steel inserts. They are designed for the Olympic lifts, but they are also great for the slow lifts- deadlift, squat, etc. The rubber makes for a quiet lifting session- even when dropped from overhead!

Troy VTX econ bumpers are considered some of the best in the industry- combining great quality bumpers with an unbeatable price. On top of that, a 1 year warranty against breakage gives each user peace of mind. Pair that high quality manufacturing with FringeSport's unbeatable service, and you get a one of a kind deal. Don't be fooled by the low price- these VTX bumper plates are used by affiliates throughout the US- and they are known for their high quality, low bounce, and outstanding durability.

Not all bumpers are created equal. Here's why your next bumper plates should be Troy VTX bumpers: 

  • Troy VTX 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.
  • Troy VTX 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 Troy VTX bumper plates!
  • Troy VTX 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.
  • Troy VTX bumpers are thinner than many of the competing bumpers- so you can load more weight on your bar!
  • Troy VTX bumpers all have the same standard diameter- you can mix and match to load your bar.
  • Finally, Troy VTX 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!
  • The Troy VTX bumpers are guaranteed +- 3% of stated weight.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Bumper Plates

    How can I choose the bumper plates that are right for me?

    Bumper plates come in a few standard sizes, and are generally sold in pounds or kilograms. Troy VTX 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

    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?
    • Snatch
    • Clean and Jerk
    • Press
    • Thruster
    • Deadlift
    • Squat
    • Bench
    • Overhead lunge
    • And even more!

    Long Term Review

    I purchased 2000 lbs. of VTX for my CrossFit gym back in 2013 and this set has been through an estimated 6000 workouts with thousands of athletes of all different ability levels. We are the type of box that likes to drop plates and throw weight around. We are heavy into Olympic style weightlifting. We always program ****** and clean and **** into our strength portion and metabolic conditioning portion of our workouts equally. I have to say that I am completely impressed with the amount of abuse this set has taken over the years. Just recently have I started to get cracking plates and steel inserts dislodging. But that's only in a few of the plates. Most of them look like they're ready for another 6000 plus workouts. If you're thinking about buying these. You cannot go wrong. The greasy complaint is valid but it goes away after wiping it with a rag and putting the plates through a few training sessions. The 10# plates which usually taco at other facilities, we don't experience that problem at our gym. We never have had an issue with dropping the 10# plates from overhead and them breaking on us. So you get a lot of value for the money for sure. I'm about to reload on another 1-2000 lbs. of plates and I'm seriously considering VTX again, how can I not!???

    Awesome smelly plates

    Plates smell a bit, but im sure you can wash it off or something. Other than that, these are good plates to have at home.
