Features & Highlights

  • IPF Approved – These plates are approved to be used in International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) sanctioned events.
  • Accuracy – With a weight tolerance of +/- 10 grams, calibrated plates are the most accurate iron plate available. Each plate is equipped with precise calibration plugs on the back to dial in the weight nearly perfectly.
  • Weight Offerings – Eleiko IPF Calibrated Powerlifting Plates can be purchased from 0.25KG up to 25KG and they’re sold individually. Eleiko does not offer sets.
  • Width – One of the best features of calibrated plates is that they’re extremely thin. These plates from Eleiko are among the thinnest, and they can allow for over 700KG to be loaded onto the bar. Plate widths as follows:
    • 0.25KG – 7mm (0.28″)
    • 0.5KG – 8mm (0.31″)
    • 1.25KG- 12mm (0.47″)
    • 2.5KG – 15mm (0.59″)
    • 5KG – 20mm (0.79″)
    • 10KG – 19mm (0.75″)
    • 15KG – 19mm (0.75″)
    • 20KG – 20mm (0.79″)
    • 25KG – 24mm (0.94″)
  • Diameter Unlike bumper plates, iron plates do not offer consistent plate diameters except for 20KG-50KG variants. On calibrated plates, most users are at least going to have two 20KG plates on the bar, so it’s not of major concern, but just know that you won’t be pulling from standard height unless you have one of the two variants loaded.
    • 0.25KG – 112mm
    • 0.5KG – 134mm
    • 1.25KG- 160mm
    • 2.5KG – 190mm
    • 5KG – 230mm
    • 10KG – 325mm
    • 15KG – 400mm
    • 20KG – 450mm
    • 25KG – 450mm
  • Hole Size – Eleiko IPF Calibrated Powerlifting Plates have a hole size of 50.4mm, which creates a very snug fit on the bar. It’s important to have a quality-spec’d barbell when using calibrated plates. Otherwise, the plates will be difficult or not even possible to slide onto the bar.
  • Flanges – These plates do include flanges around the front outer edge. This makes them great for grip strength, but not-so-great at picking up and handling. When these plates are lying flat on the floor, they’re difficult to grab.
  • Powder Coated Finish – These plates have a great-looking IPF color scheme with vibrant colors on 2.5KG+ variants. Plates less than 2.5KG are finished in a beautiful chrome. All plates above 1.25KG are powder coated, which means that will be prone to scratch and chip, although this is purely cosmetic.
  • Durability – These are cast iron plates and overall durability is very good. As with any plate, durability will come down to frequency of use and how they’re used. These plates should last years and withstand a lot of abuse.
