What are Rubber Radial Weight Plates?
The Hit Fitness Rubber Radial Olympic Weight plates fit onto Olympic bars which allow you to perform all your traditional bar exercises including squats, deadlifts, and bench press. They are also known as tri-grip plates, this is because of the 3 handle grips on each plate.
The plates get physically bigger in size as the weights increase, compared to bumper plates which have the same diameter no matter what the weight.
Benefits of Rubber Weight Plates
The main benefits of the Rubber Radial Olympic Weight plates include:
They can be used without a barbell for exercises such as Russian Twists and side bends

They can easily be gripped due to the textured rubber handles. The rubber coating means they won’t tarnish and if dropped aren’t easily damaged – protects against rust and reduces the noise, while also protecting flooring if/when plates are dropped.
They can be used in both a home and commercial gym
4. SIZE VARIATIONS
They come in a variety of weights from 1.25-25kg
