Tested on a Shore A Durometer scale, the Competition Plates' average measurement was a 94, which delivers a consistent dead blow with minimal bounce found in high end Olympic weightlifting bumpers. Less bounce means less time chasing your bar around the gym.
2. New Finish and Lettering
The plates have been given a gloss-matte-gloss textured matte finish and raised lettering for a bolder look.
3. Raised Flanges
A raised rubber surface is now included to prevent direct metal-on-metal contact between the center discs. Whether stacked on the bar or on a rack, the bumpers only come into contact with each other on the inner and outer flanges—reducing scuffing and helping to preserve the plates’ finish and lettering. A convenient lip on the edge of the plate also makes it easier to pick up from the rack or off the ground.
BLKBOX Competition Plates come in four vibrant colors (Red/25KG, Blue/20KG, Yellow/15KG, Green/10KG) and can be ordered in a wide variety of sets depending on your gym’s needs. See the order form on the right to choose the option best for you or contact us with a custom order request.
The plates are an IWF standard 450mm in diameter, with a narrow width that allows for more weight to be loaded on the bar. A 50.4mm collar opening and steel disc insert keep the plates firmly in place even during intense, high-rep training.
