Xpeed Competition Bumper Plates 

The Xpeed Competition Bumper Plates are built for the serious lifter and are suitable for the elite garage gym or commercial gym. This style of plate is precision calibrated and constructed with high quality, 100% natural rubber. Competition plates are characterised by a stainless steel insert which provides a large internal surface area that contacts the rubber plate, spreading the load of shock absorption and shock distribution. Which makes them a fantastic plate for high volume use.  

A key feature of Competition Plates is their colour coding which makes them instantly identifiable for coaches and athletes during training. If you're chasing powerlifting PB's Competition Plates are for you. 

5kg: 23mm - Grey

10kg: 30mm - Green

15kg: 42mm - Yellow

20kg: 50mm - Blue

25kg: 63mm - Red


Our competition bumper plates are test dropped in our factory 1000's of times for quality assurance and have a weight accuracy within 10 grams or less, which is necessary for sanctioned weightlifting competitions.


The competition bumpers feature a matte finish with raised white lettering. The raised lip in the edge of the bumper plate protects the lettering from scuffing and the steel insert from scratches.


The bounce of this style of plate when dropped with a barbell is determined by the hardness of the materials used. Due to the steel insert and type of rubber utilised in the construction of our bumper plates the result is minimal bounce during lifting.

What's the difference between Training Bumper Plates and Competition Bumper Plates?

The difference between competition bumper plates and training bumper plates lies primarily in their specifications, design, and intended use:


  • Competition Bumper Plates: These plates are manufactured to meet the strict standards set by international weightlifting organizations for competitive events. They adhere to specific weight tolerances and dimensions, ensuring consistency and accuracy during competitions.
  • Training Bumper Plates: Training plates are designed for everyday use in training environments such as gyms, home setups, or fitness facilities. While they may still meet quality standards, they may have slightly looser weight tolerances compared to competition plates.

Design and Construction:

  • Competition Bumper Plates: Competition plates typically feature a thinner profile compared to training plates, allowing for more weight to be loaded onto the barbell. They often have a reinforced steel or stainless steel inner ring to maintain structural integrity during high-impact drops.
  • Training Bumper Plates: Training plates may have a thicker profile and a wider colour range for easy identification of different weights. They are also constructed to withstand regular use and abuse in training environments, but may not have the same level of precision engineering as competition plates.

Intended Use:

  • Competition Bumper Plates: These plates are specifically designed for use in official weightlifting competitions, where precise weight measurement and consistency are paramount. They are not typically used for general training purposes due to their specialised design and higher cost.
  • Training Bumper Plates: Training plates are suitable for a wide range of strength training exercises, including Olympic lifts, powerlifting movements, and general strength training. They are versatile, durable, and well-suited for everyday use by athletes and fitness enthusiasts of all levels.

Price and Availability:

  • Competition Bumper Plates: Due to their specialised design and adherence to strict standards, competition plates are often more expensive than training plates. They may also have limited availability, as they are primarily produced for competitive use.
  • Training Bumper Plates: Training plates are more readily available and come at a more affordable price point compared to competition plates. They are widely used in gyms and fitness centers worldwide, catering to the needs of athletes and lifters in various training settings.

In summary, while both competition bumper plates and training bumper plates serve the purpose of facilitating weightlifting and strength training, they differ in terms of specifications, design, intended use and price point. Catering to the specific requirements of either your competitive events versus your everyday training environments.

Can bumper plates be used on any barbell?

Bumper plates are designed to be used on 'Olympic' sized barbells, which have a 50mm diameter sleeve diameter. While they can technically fit on other barbells, it's recommended to use them with Olympic bars for optimal performance and safety.

Are bumper plates safe for dropping?

Yes, bumper plates are specifically designed to be dropped from overhead safely. However, proper technique and caution should always be practiced to minimise the risk of injury to yourself and damage to the equipment.

How do I store bumper plates?

Bumper plates should be stored in a clean, dry area away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures. Vertical plate storage racks or plate trees are commonly used to keep bumper plates organised and easily accessible.
