Lift Heavy and Lift Safe with Toughfit Bumper Plates

Lift Heavy and Lift Safe with Toughfit Bumper Plates

Looking to outfit your home gym with serious lifting gear? Toughfit's Bumper Plates are the ultimate Olympic plates for safely pushing your strength to the next level.

Engineered with powerlifters and CrossFitters in mind, these rugged black bumper plates allow you to max out without worrying about damaging your floors, equipment, or plates.

Uniform 450mm Diameter Plates

Uniform 450mm Diameter Plates

Unlike traditional cast iron plates with varying diameters, all Toughfit Bumper Plates are sized to 450mm (17.7 inches) in diameter. This uniform size is in line with International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) standards.

The standardized sizing creates several key benefits:

  • Visually appealing stack heights when loaded on the bar since all plates are the same diameter. Iron plates vary greatly in size and create uneven, scattered-looking stacks.
  • Consistent feel when lifting and grip width on the bar during each lift. With different sized plates, your hand placement needs to adjust. Standardized bumper plates allow consistent grips.
  • Even weight distribution along the bar sleeve. The uniform size prevents smaller plates from shifting excessively or tipping when loaded with larger iron plates.
  • Allows intuitive plate changes for progressive loading. You can easily swap in heavier and lighter plates without thinking about diameter differences.

The weight of each Toughfit Bumper Plate is determined by its thickness, ranging from 10 pounds for the lightest plate up to 55 pounds for the heaviest option. This offers a wide range of loading options in a clean, standardized format.

Designed for Any Olympic Barbell

With a 2 inch center opening, these bumper plates will fit snugly and securely onto any standard Olympic barbell.

The 2 inch hole is the worldwide standard for Olympic plates and bars. This ensures compatibility with any high-quality Olympic setup.

The opening size allows the plates to slide smoothly onto your bar during rapid lifts like cleans, snatches, and jerks. You won't have to worry about the hole being too tight or getting stuck.

The mid-range thickness of 0.5 to 1 inch for most plates is designed specifically not to press against standard Olympic collar sleeves. This prevents excessive friction when sliding plates on and off for complex lift training.

Durable Low-Bounce Rubber

Constructed from dense virgin rubber with an inner steel ring, Toughfit Bumper Plates provide durability along with just the right amount of bounce.

The rubber material dampens noise and impact when dropped from overhead. This protects both your plates and equipment from damage. No more angry neighbors!

The minimal bounce is a result of the optimized rubber density. Too much bounce can make plates unstable and shift weight during lifts. The controlled bounce from Toughfit Plates keeps them firmly centered under the bar.

The inner steel ring reinforces the structural integrity under heavy loads. While all-rubber bumper plates can deform over time, the steel maintains shape even when loaded close to 1,000 lbs.

The premium virgin rubber withstands years of abuse without cracking or separating. You won't have to worry about replacing these anytime soon, even with daily max lift training.

Safely Max Out Your Lifts

The ultimate purpose of bumper plates is improving safety. Now you can push your squat, deadlift, and Olympic lifts to the limit without fear of cracking iron plates or ruining barbells.

Hesitating to dump a failed lift can lead to injuries. But with quality bumper plates, you can confidently drop the weight from overhead when needed. The rubber absorbs shock, keeping both you and your equipment safe.

Gone are the days of having to rotate in old beat-up iron plates for max lift attempts. With Toughfit bumpers protecting your bar, there's no need to sacrifice safety even when going for 1RM personal records.

The sturdy rubber can withstand repeated drops from overhead without degrading or deforming over time. While thinly designed bumpers crack after a few drops, these are engineered for hardcore training abuse.

Bring the Gym Home

Toughfit's Black Bumper Plates allow you to train with that satisfying "steel on steel" feeling of commercial gym platforms right in your own garage or home gym.

The dense rubber provides just enough bounce to mimic the feel of pro-level lifting platforms. You'll feel like you're training in a serious strength facility.

The uniform 450mm size also gives your home setup a very sleek, professional look. While iron plates appear scattered with each lift, bumper plates create perfectly stacked symmetrical towers on the bar and floor.
