Again Faster Virgin RubberBumper Plates allow you to perform overhead lifts safely. Practice snatches, clean & jerks, thrusters, squats, and pressing movements without worrying about damage to the floor or your barbell, should you drop the lift. Again Faster Virgin Rubber Bumper Plates are used in Functional Fitness boxes and fitness gyms worldwide.
Our Bumper Plates are available in 5kg, 10kg, 15kg, 20kg & 25kg pairs.
The 5kg bumper plates are not designed to be dropped from above the hip unless coupled with larger (10kg, 15kg, 20kg, 25kg) bumper plates. Dropping a barbell loaded only with 5kg bumper plates from above the hip (shoulder or overhead positions) will cause cracking and breaking. Failure to follow proper use of these bumper plates will void our guarantee.

1. Collars made of galvanized steel are co-molded into the rubber, making them more durable and preventing loose collars and cracking around the center of the plate.
2. High density virgin rubber gives the plates a low, controllable bounce, even when dropped from overhead.
3. The rubber has been vulcanized, a process through which the chemical mix is strengthened and the plate made more durable.
4. The Virgin Rubber Bumper Plates are the IWF standard 450mm in diameter, and are thinner than most other styles of bumper plate, meaning they are easier to handle and allow you to load more weight onto the bar
Perfect balance of price, performance and resilience. These plates do their job, have a nice degree of bounce if you drop them on the right sort of rubber mats (ie: not too high) and they don’t have that awful rubber smell that characterises the el cheapo plates....so if you were looking to get buzzed whilst lifting these ain’t for you. If you’re looking for tough, long lasting plates that are good value for money then grab yourself a handful of virgins....(god that sounds wrong when you say it out loud!)
These plates are at the budget end of the range but they preform awesome. They are solid, predictable and of the great quality expected at Again Faster.
I have purchased these plates to practise my form without adding much weight to the bar. They are solid and don't have a rubbery odour and although I don't drop them intentionally I have accidently and they have held up well. Delivery was extremely fast and I will purchase from Again Faster in the future!
Just awesome, not flimsy like my other cheap 5kg plates. Definitely recommend.
