The REP Pinnacle Plates are crumb rubber bumper plates, featuring a unique, embossed, Colorado-inspired mountain design. Crumb rubber allows for a softer bounce than standard bumpers and greater durability over time. Plates all come in black with aesthetic, color-coded fleck and design so you can easily determine the weight. Plates come in gray for 10lbs; white for 15lbs; green for 25lbs; yellow for 35lbs; blue for 45lbs; and red for 55lbs. They feature an extremely accurate 1% weight tolerance. REP Pinnacle Plates are made in a thinner width than other recycled rubber plate designs, so you can fit more weight on a barbell.
Bumpers are incredibly versatile weight plates, in that they’re suitable for Olympic weightlifting and cross-training/HIIT-style workouts, where dropping the barbell from overhead or shoulder height is common. However, they're also useful for powerlifting, when you want to protect your floors and equipment. Hooked steel inserts provide a tight connection that will stand up over time. The Pinnacle Plates are an attractive and versatile addition to any home or commercial gym.

Should I get Pinnacle Bumper Plates or iron plates?
Bumper plates are manufactured to withstand drops onto the floor, which is desirable for Olympic weightlifting (snatch, clean and jerk, hang cleans), where you often drop the plates onto the ground. Iron plates are better for lifts that do not involve the weights hitting the ground (such as bench press, squats, and curls), because they can cause damage to the floor, the barbell, and to the plates themselves.
What is the diameter of the insert?
All our bumper plates have a 2” Olympic-standard inner diameter and will fit 2” Olympic-sleeved barbells.
What material is the insert made of?
The insert is zinc-plated steel.
Is the insert standard or hooked?
Our Pinnacle Bumper Plates utilize a hooked insert for greater durability.
Do I need to do anything when I first receive my Pinnacle Bumper Plates?
When bumper plates arrive, unpack and let them air out for a few days to allow any odor, however faint, to air out.
What can I do to extend the life span of my Pinnacle Bumper Plates?
To extend their life span, try to drop plates as close to straight down as possible. If your bar collars get loose during a workout, try to retighten them so your plates always land straight up and down. This will lessen the sideways force on the bumper plate insert. Also, flooring with some type of give (like heavy-duty rubber mats or a weightlifting platform) will help absorb some of the impact from dropping the plates.
Can I load Pinnacle Bumper Plates and iron plates on the same bar?
We do not recommend this, because iron and bumper plates can have slightly different diameters, meaning all the force from dropping the weights goes into the larger plate, causing those plates and your barbell to wear more quickly. It is best to keep all plates on your bar the same type.
Do Pinnacle Bumper Plates have a warranty?
Yes, the 10 and 15lb plates come with a six-month warranty for both home and commercial use. The 25, 35, 45, and 55lb plates come with a three-year warranty for home use and a one-year warranty for commercial use.
