The Stateel Black Rubber Bumper & Fractional Plates Combo
The Stateel Black Rubber Bumper Plates, super durable and sleek, great for Olympic style weightlifting training or crossfit training, available in 3 bundle combos together with the optional add on of a complete set of Stateel Cast Iron Fractional Plates for all your training needs!
Stateel Black Rubber Bumper Plates
Our black bumper plates are made entirely of rubber with a stainless steel insert, these plates have been drop tested (except 5kgs plates) and are able to withstand being dropped with the bar overhead or from shoulder height, making these plates perfect for snatches, cleans, clean & jerks, and any other exercises which involves dropping the weights during the course of work outs. This also helps protect the bar, surrounding equipment, and flooring when the weights are dropped.
Of course, training with these plates also helps to lessen the noise made when being dropped as compared to other steel or rubber coated cast iron plates.
Stateel Cast Iron Fractional Plates
When it comes to progressive overloads in your training, adding a small amount of weights overtime will compound into monstrous PRs especially in weightlifting type exercises where adding on 5kgs may not be a practical progression as you get within 85-95% of your 1-rep max weights. With the Stateel cast iron fractional plates, you're not able to add various permutations of smaller weights including 3kgs, 3.5kgs, 4kgs, and 4.5kgs by combining the various plates!
Built to last and almost definitely used with bumpers or other larger diameter weight plates on a barbell which helps prevent them from being dropped alone, these plates will last a looooong time. We do not recommend using these plates on a barbell alone to ensure the longevity of the plates.
Caring for your bumper plates:
When you first receive your bumper plates, there might be a low level of odour, just let them air out for a few days. Although these plates are made to be dropped, always make sure they are dropped facing as close to straight down as possible instead of letting plates be dropped in a diagonal/sideway position. It is good practice to ensure that the clamp collars are always fitted tightly on the bar sleeves in order to keep the plates upright to minimise the sideways stress on the inserts of the bumper plates.
A shock absorbing surface such as rubber mats (at least 20mm thick), weight lifting platforms, or crash pads would help with protecting and further enhancing the lifespan of these plates.
