Crumb Bumper Plates
Crumb bumpers are made out of rubber “crumbs” made from processing old tires. When a material is recycled and processed in the USA, the new product is considered made in the USA, regardless of the original product’s country of origin.
Crumb bumpers are significantly less dense than virgin rubber bumpers, making them much bouncier.
