Element Fitness Premium Grip Plates provide an upgrade from basic weight plates:
CERTIFIED VIRGIN RUBBER: Unlike some weight plates, covered in Micronized Rubber Powder (MRP), Virgin Rubber is not made from processed end-of-life tire material and scrap rubber material. Virgin Rubber provides a more whole and tough covering for your weight plates. NO NOXIOUS ODOUR: Virgin Rubber doesn't have to undergo the same chemical treatment that gives basic rubber its unpleasant smell. The toxic odours that are associated with regular rubber are effectively eliminated, meaning working out in your gym won't irritate your sense of smell or give you a headache. ERGO HAND GRIPS: The shape of the grips makes it easier to add or remove plates without jamming your fingers. At the same time, the rubber coating helps to protect your plates from chipping, extending the life of your equipment.
