Price is right in line with Wright Rubber bumpers. Not very different than the rogues or Hi Temp either.

Re: CHEAP Bumpers-Any Good???

Luke,

I wanted to take a brief moment to reply.

Since McAllen is pretty good haul, have your local Cross-Fit contact me and I'll send a sample plate free of charge of both the plate and one of our kettle bells just as I did a couple months back when Rogue challenged our kettle bell quality. Like they did, please post your review (positive or negative on the board)

Regarding our bumpers they are not cheap in quality and have the same 1 year institutional warranty our peers like Wright have. They were developed to be a superior offering to the many current brands presently on market.

As with all of our products we take necessary quality control steps and drop test to ensure our quality exceeds our warranty and we enjoy using Cross-Fit as a de facto proving ground.

Both our black and colored bumpers have been tested against many brands including (Wright, Kraiburg, & Diamond) just to name a few and their durability outperforms and they are therefore warranted accordingly.

You will absolutely not find a better quality plate for the price and you will receive the same high level of service available from the aforementioned companies.

Our products, particularly Cross-Fit essentials like bumpers and kettlebells are designed to be the best value offering of any manufacturer on market. We've been in business here in Houston for over 25 years so this is not a new endeavor for us.

Please feel free to forward any suggestions or comments or criticisms and I will personally handle them.

Best regards,
Paul J. Poterek

You cannot really argue with that...

Re: CHEAP Bumpers-Any Good???

Paul,

Looking at the bumper in the wed site, Im pretty convince Im going to buy a pair of 10s, 25s, and 45s in the near future. But what strike me is that u dont have pre-made packages. Like a 160 lb set of bumper that comes with less expensive shipping, just as the 3 set Kettlebells package that ships for $60(160 lb as well). That would safe me and other some cash and you will be selling more. Just some thought, would be really nice if u could do that!

Bryan

Re: CHEAP Bumpers-Any Good???

Bryan,

We don't sell directly to end users but I'll float your idea to our CF, retail and e-commerce dealer affiliates.

The KB set you reference is being offered on one of our dealer's sites at their discretion.

If your purchase is imminent,
feel free to shoot me an e-mail and I'll be happy to put one of our dealers in contact with you directly.

Thank you again for your suggestion.

In health,
Paul J. Poterek

Do you ship to Canada? Or do you have any dealers in Canada?

Re: CHEAP Bumpers-Any Good???

You're not too far from Vaughan and we have a dealer there, Keystone Everything Fitness

Here is the (hws) link http://www.keystonefitness.ca/ks/action/home

They're ordering soon so they should have no problem adding some if you're interested.

In health,
Paul
