What Is The Difference Between Urethane Dumbbells And Rubber Hex Dumbbells?


Lifting free weights can have a number of health benefits on your muscles, bones, mental health and can even reduce body fat. If you’ve been considering some dumbbells for your gym, then you’ve probably been scratching your head at the choice between Urethane dumbbells and rubber hex dumbbells. These are both quality dumbbells but to help you make the best choice for you, we’ll tell you all you need to know about both.

Urethane Dumbbells

Urethane dumbbells are of unbeatable quality and will last much longer than rubber hex dumbbells. They’re abrasion, UV and impact resistant. Urethane dumbbells are also unscented so there’ll be no lingering smells in your gym if you do choose these.

If you’re the owner of a commercial gym then you should be picking urethane dumbbells. Not just because they’ll be getting constant use but because you can engrave gym logos onto urethane much easier than other types of rubber.

Rubber Hex Dumbbells

Rubber hex dumbbells are still a quality option despite not being able to match the durability of urethane dumbbells. They’re also a cheaper option. If you’re starting a home gym and not going to be competing in a world weightlifting tournament anytime soon then you should choose these quality dumbbells.

What Else?

Once you’ve got your dumbbells you’ll need a convenient way to keep them secured and safe. The best way to do this is to buy a dumbbell rack. We have dumbbell racks with different dimensions to fit small and large commercial gyms and home gyms.
