Pros & Cons
What we like about the product...
- The Rogue Training Bumper Plates feature a great color that allows them to be easily identifiable.
- Just like other competition bumper plates, these are thin which allows you to load about as much weight on the bar as you'd like to lift.
- Rogue offers free shipping on these plates.
- The Shore A Durometer rating is 86, which makes them a bit bouncer than some competitors or more expensive plates, but not much.
- The colors are vibrant and will fade over time, but not tremendously.
- The center hub on the plates is chrome-plated.
- The new 2.0 version features a gloss-matte-gloss finish that holds up better than previous versions.
- These bumpers must be within +/- 15 grams of the claimed weight or Rogue will replace them.
- These are the plates that were used in the CrossFit Games and Regionals for years (and still are depending on the competition.)
- Collar opening of 50.4MM is standard and means there won't be a lot of space between the plate hub and your barbell sleeve.
What needs improvement...
- The logos and weight markings will eventually so fade over time that you won't be able to see them.
- The center steel hub is a two-piece design that causes the plates to rub against the sleeves creating noise and they've been known to separate from the rubber.
- Many reviewers have complained of surface rust on the center hubs. One user had this to say, "I bought mine about two years ago, there is already a lot of visible rusts. In comparison, my Rogue competition plates are completely shiny with no rust at all."
