Hybrid Bumper Plates
Brand Bulldog Gear
The Bulldog Gear Hybrid Bumper Plates are a great quality, budget-priced plate; made of solid virgin rubber and come with both LB and KG markings. Available from 5kg to 25kg, the Hybrid bumper plates are sold in pairs and fit standard 50mm diameter bar sleeves.
Each bumper plate has a specially designed stainless steel insert, which is unique to our hybrid bumpers. This stops the insert from popping out like other bumpers on the market. Other manufacturers tend to use a mild steel zinc plated insert which will rust over time. Each Bumper Plate is accurate to within 1% of its stated weight.
Hybrid bumper plates are 450 mm in diameter, meeting the International Weightlifting Federation Standard. We've designed our hybrid bumpers with extremely dense high quality virgin rubber. This has allowed us to reduce the thickness of the plates, so that you can load more weight onto your bar, which is really useful for squats and deadlifts.
Rubber is measured using the Shore Hardness Scale from 1-100. Our Hybrid bumpers score an average of 88 on the scale. This makes them durable and gives them a dead bounce, so when the bar is dropped with hybrid plates loaded on it, it won't bounce into your shins or someone else's.
Warranty: We offer a 1 year Warranty on our Hybrid bumpers. This excludes the 5kg plates which have a 90 day warranty. We strongly advise that you use a minimum of 18 mm matting to protect your bumper plates. Failure to use adequate matting will void your warranty.
