Made for Safe & Easy Handling
Tri grip weight plates can be made of pure cast iron or rubber-coated like Olympic bumper plates for an extra layer of protection for your floors and for the weights themselves. This gives more protection for your equipment when you need to lift heavy and lift fast, with minimal wear and tear. Unlike bumpers, rubber tri grip plates aren’t made to be dropped overhead.
Where they are different, is in their specialised grip design:
- Ribbed Outer Rim
- Three Holes & Grip Handles
- Thin slim build to slide on more weight on the bar
- Choose from tri grip olympic weight plates or standard
Why Easy Loading & Unloading is Important
It’s undeniable. Spending more effort and energy when changing over the weights on the bar or on exercise machines, takes from the strength, power and focus you may have otherwise put into your next set.
Tri grip plates can be a great resource in any commercial or home gym, especially for those that want shorter rest times between sets for faster workouts. Add in fractional change plates to speed up the loading time and lean into greater progress.
Selecting the Right Tri Grip Plates
Rubber vs Polyurethane
When it comes to the main difference between the two: polyurethane-coated plates are harder and more durable than rubber, while rubber is better for harder impact and elasticity. Choose rubber if you’re concerned about price and floor protection.
Polyurethane weight plates are otherwise the perfect choice for commercial gyms with their hardiness and capacity for customizability.
Standard vs Olympic
Select the same ‘type’ of free weight to suit your barbell. If you have an Olympic barbell, you should select tri-grip Olympic weight plates.
