Bumper Plates are built to endure the rigors of Olympic Weightlifting and
CrossFit® workouts. Unlike other brands, our Bumper Plates are made of a harder
and denser rubber compound. As a result, our Bumper Plates have a much thinner
profile and more plates can be fit on the bar .
VULCAN 385LB BUMPER PLATE AND BAR SET –
Others claim to have equivalent rubber hardness, but their 10lb and 15lb bumper
plates "waffle" easily when dropped. The typical Bumper Plate has a
thin pressed steel insert which will come out over time with repeated
droppings. Our inserts are forged solid steel and anchored into the plate. We
were the first to introduce this technology in 2011 and to this day we have
replaced less than a dozen bumper plates out of multiple tons of plates sold.
One of the things you will immediately notice when lifting our bumper plates is
how snugly they fit together on the bar as well as the dead blow/low bounce
effect they exhibit when dropped. It's a very noticeable sound compared to the
clanking rattling noise and basketball-like rebounding you will experience with
lesser quality brands.
