ATX Plates come at an amazing price compared to many other European Brands.

ATX Calibrated Plates
It’s okay to train on your average gym plates, up until the point you start lifting a few plates either side. That’s when weight deviation becomes noticeable. Best case scenario, your average gym plates would have a deviation of 2%. It might not seem like much, but on a 25 kg plate it would add up to 0.5kg! If you are planning on lifting heavy, it is important to train on calibrated equipment.
In Powerlifting, every gram matters. It can mean a difference between a good lift and a failed one.
The manufacturing process of these plates is quite complicated. First, they are machined out of high-quality steel, then they are powder coated and calibrated individually with inserts.
This allows the plate to offer a deviation of less than 0.05%! Making them one of the most precise calibrated plates on the market!
Because these plates were made without elevated logos or numbering, the thickness of the plates has been decreased significantly! ATX Competition Plates are the thinnest Steel Plates available. Steel is also far more durable as opposed to cast iron plates.
These plates are designed for extremely heavy lifting. They conform to IPF Specifications and can be used in unsanctioned competitions.

Don’t get sucked in by the looks
These plates do look extremely well. However, they are not designed for everyday gym use. Chrome/Powder coat can be quite slippery.
These plates do not have handles, making it much harder for you to carry them around.
Because they are so thin, they cannot be used for Olympic lifts. If you were planning on snatching and cleaning and jerking in your garage, you should opt for bumper plates.
Some of the plate loaded machines have limited loading space. This can be solved with Thin Powerlifting Discs. Just in this case, you won’t be taking the plates on and off, but keeping a plate or two either side as your starting weight.
Please note: These plates adhere to IPF specifications; however, they are not certified for use in World, Continental, Regional or local competitions.
