In this section of our e-commerce you can find the best weight disks for barbell: let's talk about Plates, Bumper and Small disks, ready to be mounted on your barbells and on your dumbbells. Let's assume that you are starting your workouts right now, and that you are therefore buying first weight discs for the functional, for the Weighlifting, for the Crossfit or for the Powerlifting. How to choose the most suitable weights for your purposes and your budget? You probably already know this, but it is always better to underline it: by summing up as much as possible, the world of barbell weights is divided into two large groups. On the one hand there are the 'classic' discs, or the fitness or Plates discs, perfect for training in functional gyms as well as in the Home Gym, and again, excellent for use on training machines. The disadvantage of fitness discs is that they are not absolutely suitable for drop: they cannot, in fact, be dropped (for the well-being of discs, the floor and so on). In the other group there are the Bumpers, which unlike the Plates, being made of rubber, can be dropped on the ground, without risks for the floor, for the platform, for the barbell and for the discs themselves. Another great advantage of the Bumper weights is that they don't make any noise (an advantage they share with the rubberized Plates).
Given the theory, let's move on to the practice: on this page we present you Bumpers, Plates and microcharges according to IWF and IPF standards. All you have to do is choose the ones that suit you best! There are several factors to consider. First of all, you have to start from the activity for which you will use your barbell weights. Let's assume, for example, that you are looking for droppable discs. If you are at the beginning of the world of Weightlifting and Powerlifting you could aim for our entry level range, that is for the Raw Bumper Plate, made entirely of rubber with a central ring in stainless steel, to guarantee quality and savings. Or, by spending something more, you could turn to the Bumper Plate Garage, very silent, designed for those who train on rough floors, without the rubberized layer. Then there are the Bumpers in the Training version, that is the Olympic discs to be used only on rubberized floors, characterized by a high density, to load even more. And finally, there are the unbeatable Competition Bumpers, simply the best of technique, the ideal complement to our Elite barbells.
