Product Summary

The KG version of Rogue’s Competition Plates are an IWF standard 450MM in diameter, with chrome-plated steel disc inserts and a 50.4MM collar opening for a firm, stable hold. We’ve added several new features to this line-up of color-coded bumpers:

Minimal Bounce: Tested on a Shore A Durometer scale, the Competition Plates’ average measurement was a 94, which delivers a consistent dead blow with minimal bounce found in high-end Olympic weightlifting bumpers. Less bounce means less time chasing your bar around the gym.

New Finish and Lettering: The plates have been given a gloss-matte-gloss finish and raised lettering for a clean, bold look.

Raised Flanges: A raised rubber surface is now included to prevent direct metal-on-metal contact between the center discs. Whether stacked on the bar or on a rack, the bumpers only come into contact with each other on the inner and outer flanges–reducing scuffing and helping to preserve the plates’ finish and lettering. A convenient lip on the edge of the plate also makes it easier to pick up from the rack or off the ground.

Rogue KG Competition Plates come in four colors (Red/25KG, Blue/20KG, Yellow/15KG, Green/10KG) and can be ordered in a wide variety of sets depending on your gym’s needs. See the order options on the right to choose the best set for you, or contact us with a custom order request.
