Re: Wholesale Rubber Bumper Plates!

This seems like a stupid question, but I am changing all my metal plates to bumpers, and I am looking for a good price. What is a good price per pound?

Also, are the bumper plates all the same height, even though the weights are more? This seems strange to me.

Anywhere from $1 to $2 can be considered a good price I guess, shipping accounts for alot of money though.

Bumper plates are all the same height so the impact is spread out over a larger surface area.

Also, lifts can be learned from the proper height even with lower weight (just think of having 25s on instead of 45s, 40 pounds lighter yet its the same height from the ground).

Re: Wholesale Rubber Bumper Plates!

got my new bumpers yesterday and couldnt wait to use them so after the 1111111 of BS yesterday I put the plates on my bar and walked around my block with the weight (OHS) position. That completely and totally blasted what little energy I had left in my legs. Oh you should have seen the looks I got from all the neighbors. It was phenominal. Thanks for the plates and thankyou CF for the new inspiration to forge fitness excellence.

Re: Wholesale Rubber Bumper Plates!

I am local to Birmingham where Wright's and Jason are located. If you are close enough, and are looking for other items, he has a huge store/warehouse with many new items and many trade in items. I ended up getting 250 lbs of bumpers, a bar, and a squat rack. His prices are good and service is top notch. Oh, and the bumpers are great too!

Re: Wholesale Rubber Bumper Plates!

CrossFit Nation,

I have had many requests for freight quotes to the UK. As of right now we are not able to ship to the UK, as I have not found a freight company that has reasonable international fees. I am sorry if this causes you any inconveniences.

Happy Holidays,

Jason Hughes

Re: Wholesale Rubber Bumper Plates!

I am wondering if anyone knows of a supplier of rubber bumpers who can ship to Canada or if there is a wholesaler in Canada who might ship to Alberta? OR, perhaps if there are some Montana Crossfitters here they could let me know of a retailer in Montana and I could make a day trip south to pick them up. I am particularly looking for the colored bumpers in pound increments. Thanks fellas.
Cody
