One plate is not like the other. Those who have never done weight lifting and do not know about the Weightlifting or Powerlifting world, cannot quite understand. In fact, a weight to load on a barbell is supposed to add “weight” and nothing more; or so it may seem from the outside. Though, those who confront themselves with the barbell to go beyond their limits, know very well that plates must aim way higher than simply “add weight”. First of all, in order to be used effectively in Weightlifting, the plates must be droppable, therefore rubberized in order to be able to fall without any issue. Droppable plates, as you probably already know, are called Bumpers, this is because of their ability to bounce off the ground without causing any damage to the barbell, the floor, nor the plates themselves. That's not all though: what are the other qualities to look for in the best Bumper plates? They have to be silent during the drop, in order for the athlete to remain focused during the workout without disturbing others – these are excellent in Home Gyms. They must be thin so that more plates can be loaded, therefore more weight onto the barbell. Finally, they must be resistant over time, fall after fall! Now that you know what to look for in a Bumper plate before purchasing it, let's see what all the Lacertosus® lines of droppable plates are!
Our goal is to always offer the best quality/price ratio. We want all athletes, even those who begin on a reduced budget, to be able to count on the best gym equipment, without having to settle on poor quality plates. So here, alongside our stellar competition and elite lines, we have created lines that can guarantee quality and low prices. The premier class, in this sense, is that of the Raw Bumper Plates, without gimmicks but ideal for a Home Gyms, gyms, CrossTraining and Functional Training centers that want to purchase quality plates without going over budget. If for Bumper Raw the drop is to be executed only in the presence of rubber flooring, for Garage Gyms we have created the Garage Bumper Plate instead, that thanks to the recycled and soft rubber can be dropped on rough floors in a noiseless and safe manner. There are also our Training Bumper Black and Colored plates that do not need any introduction being now a fixed point of reference on the market. Last but not least, the best of the best, our Competition Bumper Plates: perfect balance, very low thickness and a top-of-the-notch quality.
