: The 5 kg bumper plates are prone to warping when used on their own. We do not recommend dropping them from height to avoid the likelihood of this happening.
For the warranty on our bumper plates please see our general terms and conditions
Our bumper plates are shipped with a protective layer of an oily substance, plastic wrapping and a cardboard box to preserve the quality of the bumper when stored and shipped. So they may have a strong rubber smell initially.
The rubber smell will dissapate over time, especially when used. In a well aired gym this is just a matter of days. To speed up the process please wipe the bumpers with a soapy solution and store them in an area with good ventilation.
