      One of the few styles that have a government certification (Canadian) for calibration, these are the plates that powerlifters dream of. The colors are easy to spot and these plates match many of the International Powerlifting Federation specs that most lifters are accustomed to using. The slim design not only allows you to stack them thick on the bar, but also creates space and makes your gym area more efficient. For the quality of materials you get, these plates come in at a very affordable price point.
