These hybrid Bumpers are are our most popular economy bumper plates. They are a HYBRID plate between the solid rubber disc and a high end performance plate. During the manufacturing process the rubber is molded around the hub. These are recommended for applications were they will be dropped on a platform (not directly on the floor). Note: Manufacture does not cover warranty if dropped on the floor.

Buyer beware:
Many suppliers are calling rubber coated gym plates bumper plates. These plates are typically cast iron plates coated with a small amount of rubber - much like your standard rubber coated gym plate. If you are performing Olympic Lifting these imitation plates will eventually ruin your bars and platforms. There is just not enough shock absorbing material. The are cheap but your equipment will suffer.

What is a true bumper plate?
A true bumper plate is made from solid rubber (raw, synthetic or recycled) and typically will have 4 or more inches or rubber between the center hub and the edge. Premium bumper plates will have a solid steel hub to add weight to maintain similar thickness of the plates. Good economy plates will be 100% solid rubber with a thick brass bushing. The weight of economy plate is determined by the thickness of the plate. Premium and good economy bumper plates are typically made in Japan, Europe and U.S.A.

What is a good Cross-Fit Bumpers?
In our opinion if you are hard core Cross-Fit invest in something that will last - and you can abuse. However budget is always a factor so we recommend the economy bumpers for LITE work - not dropping on floors and Uesaka Varsity Series for heavier lifts and dropping.. Collegiate settings typicially train ALL day and Football programs need something that can handle extreme abuse - so we recommend the Uesaka, Collegiate Series and Varsity Series Bumpers for Collegiate Athletic enviroments.

Good economy bumper plates typically are similar in price or close to the same price of the import plates. So if you looking for a good economy plate buy a solid rubber plate to protect your bars and platforms.


Power-Lift platforms are built using Solid Oak tongue and groove lifting surface. These are the most durable platforms you can buy.

The price of the platforms includes logo's applied to the platforms and 5 layers of polyurethane varnish.

*PLEASE NOTE: Platforms should ALWAYS be atleast 3" Thick or more - made using a wood and rubber combination to absorb impact. This will prolong the life of your bumpers and bars!
