Wright Hybrid Urethane “HU” Bumper Plates are the most recent addition to the brand’s Thin Line Series. They are made using an exclusive process and formula intended to mold each plate into its thinnest form. Thinner plates allow users to stack more weight onto a bar, which is attractive to those aiming to lift heavy loads.
Wright’s HU Bumper Plates are solid cast, durable and made in the USA. Available in 10-, 15-, 25-, 35-, and 45-pound variations as well as in sets ranging from 160 pounds to 260 pounds, all HU Bumper Plates come with a solid stainless steel insert.Manufacturer: Wright EquipmentCategories: Bumper Plates, Weight Plates

Product Summary & Specs
Wright Hybrid Urethane (HU) Bumper plates combine quality and durability in a value-friendly package for lifters who are looking to hit their next PR. The new HU Bumper Plates are some of the thinnest plates on the market, making them very appealing to those looking to add more weight to their bar. Thickness ranges from 1.187 inches on the 10-pound plates to 2.625 inches for the 45-pound plate, which is remarkable considering that a typical 45-pound bumper plate usually measures about 3.5-3.75 inches thick.
Using a MT-1100 mold texture, the HU Bumpers plates have a beautiful finish, are solid cast and come equipped with stainless steel inserts which ensures even distribution of force when dropped to the ground. The HU Bumper Plate is Wright’s newest addition to the Thin Line Series and users have thus far been very pleased. What’s more is that most all Wright products, including bumper plates, are made in the USA.
