York Barbell Rubber Encased "Iso-Grip" Plates offer a protective rubber coating with a steel composite inner core that is much stronger than traditional cast iron plates. The higher density of the steel produces a grip plate with a larger gripping surface area without sacrificing strength. The durable rubber coating of your Olympic plate set helps protect floors and equipment, plus, resists chipping and rusting much better than painted plates.
These plates have a thicker hub that taper toward thinner plate edges. This creates an "anti-pinch" design that allows for easier loading and unloading of plates, plus, makes plates easier to pick up when lying on the floor.
These Olympic plates are commercial grade, designed to handle any home, school or professional fitness gym setting.
