When shopping around for bumper plates, the selection can often be overwhelming and sometimes it can be hard to choose. The best option when selecting bumper plates, in terms of quality and cost, is to choose Australian-made bumper plates. We scoured the Australian market and have found the top bumper plates of 2018:
1. Olympic rubber coated bumper plates by Atomic Mass
These Olympic coated rubber bumper plates by Atomicmass are designed for performance, super durable and suitable for lifters of all levels. Atmomicmass’ rubber coated Olympic weight plates have an Ezy tri grip and a stainless steel rolled Knurled inner ring. The rolled stainless steel edged on our Olympic rubber coated bumper plates makes for easy glide on/off from your barbell and provides a perfect fit. One of the primary benefits of these Australian-made Olympic rubber coated bumper plates is that they are extremely reliable in terms of exact weight.
2. Atomicmass standard bumper plates
These standard bumper plates made by AtomicMass are made of dense rubber which gives them a lot of bounce when dropped after a lift. The thick rubber on these bumper plates allows them to be safely loaded and dropped without causing injury or damage to the plates, lifting platform or the gym flooring. We chose these bumper plates as one of our top four bumper plates because they are safer and quiet than other weight plates, making them a great option for home gyms.
3. Atomicmass coloured stripe bumper plates
Atomicmass’ coloured strip bumper plates are slightly thicker compared to competition plates, but also slightly thinner compared to other rubber standard bumper plates on the market. These plates are super high quality and made in Brisbane. AtomicMass’ stripe bumper plates are made of thick virgin rubber and have coloured stripes and coloured weight markings. They are great looking plates with high end performance.

4. High-temp weight plates by Atomicmass
AtomicMass’ high-temp bumper plates are rubber crumbed and designed to be extremely durable and long lasting.
