2.5kg Technique Bumper Plate
The Iron Edge 2.5kg Technique Bumper Plate is the perfect tool to learn Olympic Lifting technique with a manageable entry-level weight
The benefits of Olympic lifting are immense.
Once a sport practiced by a closed group of elite lifters, Olympic lifting has become a prominent feature of strength and conditioning training amongst the general population. The only drawback, or limitation relates to the gear; traditionally, an Olympic bar and bumper plates which raise it off the floor to the required height weighed in at a minimum of forty kilos. This is not a trifling weight and requires a fairly high minimum strength quotient to get started.
Iron Edge introduced technique plates, which are plastic training plates at both 2.5kg and 5kg increments. The only problem is that while they are the correct diameter, they aren’t bumper plates as such; a bumper plate, by definition, has to be capable of being dumped from overhead once the lift had been completed. Over time, this dumping will trash an inferior plate or bar – or both.

2. Product Range
Iron Edge has one of the biggest ranges of high performance training equipment available in Australia. From Nike Romaleos weightlifting shoes, through to kettlebells, Power Bands and weightlifting equipment. In all we stock 100’s of different products at our warehouse facility in Melbourne so you'll always be able to get what you want and, most importantly, when you need it. That's why Iron Edge is the choice of Australia's best athletes, coaches and gyms. And why anything else is just compromise.
At Iron Edge we employ experienced and qualified engineers to design, test and then source the best manufacturers of all our equipment. Up until 2017 we manufactured in-house, but market pressures forced us to move manufacturing overseas. However we weren’t going to compromise on the quality and structural integrity of our products, so after rigorous research, we’ve been able to partner with some of the industry’s best and most experienced equipment manufacturers. In many ways they are more advanced and sophisticated than our in-house work shop, so you can be assured that the quality of all our products meet the same high standards and are worthy of the Iron Edge brand.
When you promise 'serious training' you have to back it up. Fortunately we do, drawing on our extensive experience dealing with Australia's best coaches, athletes, sports scientists and exercise physiologists. It's enabled Iron Edge to be one of Australia's leading authorities in high performance strength training- and with an educational arm of the business comprised of over ten certified courses launching soon, we plan on increasing the industry standard across the board.
