Eleiko LB Olympic Weightlifting Training Plates

Eleiko LB Olympic Weightlifting Training Plates are very high-quality, durable, and beautiful plates. They’re different from the KG competition plates only in that these are in pounds, they don’t have as tight of a weight tolerance, and they’re not IWF-approved.

These plates are ideal for any lifting style, but they excel in Olympic weightlifting and even powerlifting given their low bounce and narrow width.

This is the LB variant – Eleiko also sells KG weightlifting Training Plates that are approved by the IWF.

Features & Highlights

  • IWF Approved –  As the name implies, the Eleiko LB Training Plates are approved to be used in IWF-sanctioned events. Each plate is embossed with an IWF logo.
  • Dead Bounce – Eleiko doesn’t state a durometer rating on these plates, but they produce an extremely low bounce. Generally, competition-style plates carry a rating of between 90-94. When you drop these plates from overhead, you can rest assured that you’re not going to have to chase the bar around.
  • Zinc-Plated Steel Disc – These plates use a zinc-plated steel disc, which looks much nicer than other zinc-plated discs, in my opinion. Most zinc hubs have been blasted to achieve a very textured look that I don’t care that much for relative to a more reflective chrome. These hubs from Eleiko are smoother and more reflective, but they won’t show smudges and fingerprints as much as chrome. One side of the hub includes 5 bolts for a very secure plate. The hole diameter is 50.4mm, which is standard for a competition plate, and which accommodates an Olympic-sized barbell very nicely.
  • Raised Flanges– The outer edges of the plates are raised to help when picking the plates up from a flat position or otherwise carrying them. There is also a raised flange around the center disc to prevent metal-on-metal contact and to extend the life of the plates.
  • Weight Offerings – Eleiko LB Olympic Weightlifting Training Plates can be purchased from 25LB up to 55LB and they’re sold individually. Therefore, the price you see on their website needs to be doubled. The price you see on this page is for a pair of 45LB plates. Eleiko does not offer these plates in sets.
  • Plate Width – One of the biggest benefits of these plates is that they have a slim profile, which means you can load more onto the bar. Eleiko doesn’t state the widths of the LB variants, so the widths below are taken from their KG siblings, which will be very similar:
    • 25LB – 1.34″
    • 35LB – 1.65″
    • 45LB – 2.13″
    • 55LB – 2.52″
  • Durability – These plates are extremely durable, whether in a commercial setting or in a home gym. They are built to sustain thousands and thousands of drops. Simply put, these are some of the most durable plates that money can buy.
  • Weight Tolerance – The Eleiko LB Weightlifting Training Plates have a weight tolerance of up to +/-200g. For comparison, the competition plates have a tolerance up to +20g and -12.5g.
  • Aesthetics – These plates look amazing. The colors are vibrant, the contrasting raised white lettering pops, the higher flanges look nice, and the smoother zinc-plated hubs are a great touch.
