Pros & Cons

What we like about the product...

  1. FringeSport is making by and large the best value bumper plates currently on the market.
  2. These bumpers use 100% virgin rubber with a Shore Durometer of 85 sHA that provides for a rather dead bounce.
  3. FringeSport carries 55 LB bumpers which isn't often seen with this style.
  4. The Black Bumpers have a beveled edge that makes them easier to carry from the rack to the bar.
  5. The insert on these bumpers is unique in that it uses hooks that allow for more surface are of the insert to grab onto the rubber. This prevents them from coming loose and falling out like what is often seen in CrossFit Gyms with Hi-Temp Crumb Rubber Bumpers.
  6. As with all FringeSport products, they offer free shipping on these bumpers (if you really want to save some money, wait for Black Friday.)
  7. FringeSport is one of the only companies that says it's okay to drop the 10 LB plates due to how strong and wide they are.
  8. 3-Year Warranty comes standard.
  9. The weight tolerance is +/- 1% of stated weight. This means that if they're off, FringeSport will replace them free of charge.
  10. Compared to competitors like Rogue Fitness, these are very similar bumpers at a better value.

What needs improvement...

  1. As with all non-competition bumper plates, these are wide which prevents you from being able to load over 500 LB on most bars.

Product Summary & Specs

You’ll love our bumper plates because they’re going to make you suffer like you never have before. Fringe Sport bumper plates make Sisyphus blush. Like eternally rolling a boulder uphill, our bumper plates will outlast you, laboring for a lifetime. They’re durable, so they’ll absorb all the punishment you dish out, thin so you can add bigger loads to the bar and super weight accurate. Better yet, unlearn everything you’ve ever learned about 10 lb bumpers, and drop these at will. Yes, you read that right. Drop the 10s. They won’t crumble. After the boulder rolled downhill, did Sisyphus ever find it broken?

Think about epic heroes like Luke Skywalker or the Karate Kid. You too are called to training that will involve pain and suffering. We’re here to be your Yoda. We invite you to embark your hero’s journey. Accept the challenge, and our bumper plates will be the burden that makes you a champion.

Step Up to the Plate

Here’s why Fringe Sport bumpers will lift you up:

  • Steel Insert- Outperforms most bumpers with a higher threshold for abuse without malformation, while machined to exact tolerances to fit all high-quality Olympic bars.
  • Low Bounce with High Durability– Careful rubber formulation softens bounce making for safe use in tight spaces and prevents chipping and falling apart due to brittleness. Boasts years of use in a garage or affiliate.
  • Stability- 10 and 15 lb bumpers feature expertly designed “hooked” steel insert, that remains firmly seated. Offers high durability, making them more stable than most that suffer from fragility and thinness.
  • Thinner- Virgin rubber and higher density slims the plate so you can load more weight on your bar!
  • Standard diameter– Universal matching diameter so you can mix and match to load your bar.

    The Bottom Line

    The FringeSport Black Bumper Plates are generally the best value bumper plates that we've reviewed. They feature a good warranty, have a wide variety of weight increments, low bounce, and are extremely durable. If you're looking for bumper plates for Olympic Weightlifting or CrossFit and want something that will last without (totally) breaking the bank, then these are a great option.
