These bumper plates feature a low bounce to ensure safety to users, making these ideal for cross training, strength and conditioning, and other training programs involving high repetition volume.
The BP-10 (10 lb) and BP-15 (15 lb) are NOT designed or intended to be dropped on the bar without adding additional weight. However, using the BP-25 (25 lb) in conjunction with either the BP-10 or BP-15 will prevent damage from occurring to lighter bumper plates.
Note: due to the rubber construction, these weight plates may have a distinct scent that will fade over time - some may be more sensitive to the scent than others. If you are experiencing this scent, you can wash these plates with any hand or dish soap and water until it dissipates.
