HATLEX TRAINING BUMPERS
After two years of work in contact with the best athletes in functional training and Olympic Weight Lifting, having sponsored dozens of European competitions we have designed this new model of Training Bumpers.
The quality and precision manufacturing have made a significant leap forward in ensuring performance of their class. Completely revised design both aesthetically and functionally, the new Training Bumpers are a point of reference for any person intends to open a space dedicated to the functional training.
WHAT ARE “BUMPER PLATES”?
Bumper plates are olympic lifting plates made of virgin rubber and stainless steel. Their first function is to lighten their falling at the end of all olympic lifting techniques, especially those that require overhead liftings.
Difference between TRAINING and COMPETITION
The TRAINING model is used just to train and not for official competitions. It seems heavier than the COMPETITION one, because most of the plates are made of rubber, so they're wider than COMPETITION plates.
A barbell which is completely loaded with TRAINING plates, can weight up to 230 kg. These bumpers are normally used in functional training gyms and boxes worldwide, both because of their low price and their “heavy” look.
COMPETITION bumpers have a big steel part in the centre of the plate and this determines most of the weight. For this reason they are thinner than TRAINING ones and they give you the possibility to load the barbell up to 300 kg, occupying less space on the collar. COMPETITION plates are more compact than others, they are more expensive and their rubber is coloured just as classic official plates, so that their weight can be easily recognized.
