Rogue Echo Bumper Plates are the workhorse of your at home gym. They are budget-friendly with an International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) standard 450-millimeter diameter (the 10-pound plate is 446 millimeters). They meet their target weight within 1% and have minimal surface imperfections.
Due to their quality stainless steel inserts and virgin rubber, these plates offer an 88 out of 100 durometer rating, meaning they absorb impact for less damage to your barbells and floors. The Echo Bumpers are sold in pairs or sets at a reasonable price.
The Rogue Echo Bumper Plates are a great value plate based upon our review. Although they're cheaper than Rogue's flagship HG 2.0 Plates, they have extremely similar specs and warranty at a much lower price. If you need bumper plates for your garage gym, these are a great option. If you need them for your commercial facility or CrossFit Affiliate, we'd suggest going with something like Hi-Temps.
