The Tru Grit Fitness Economy Bumper Plates are a high-quality yet affordable option for weight plates for your home gym. With pricing starting around $60 for a 10-pound pair, these are some of the best low-cost bumpers you’ll find. They’re made of virgin rubber and feature stainless steel inserts and stark white-on-black lettering and numbering.
These bumper plates have relatively low bounce and don’t make much noise when dropped. Due to the virgin rubber construction, you can expect some slipperiness and a rubber smell upon opening the boxes. However, both the slippage and smell will reduce over time.
Notably, the Tru Grit Economy Bumper Plates have an impressive 1% weight tolerance, which isn’t something you often see in a more affordable weight plate.
