What is the best urethane dumbbell choice? There’s no question that all the dumbbells featured in this section are of high quality and each type and brand is a perfect fit for somebody. For some, budget may dictate which type and brand of urethane dumbbell is purchased. For others, it may be the aesthetics, brand, handle type or length of warranty. In addition to the information below, you’ll find more information on each urethane dumbbell page here than you will on any other website. We do this so that our customers can make an informed and educated decision on the dumbbells they are about to purchase so that ultimately they are happy with their buying experience.
Welded Solid Steel Dumbbells – The urethane dumbbell that features a solid steel head that is welded to a solid steel handle is by far the most durable and best investment for commercial gyms. Some manufacturers choose to drill a hole partially through the steel slug head, press fit and then weld on the inside while others drill a hole completely through each slug, press fit all the way through to the other side and then weld on the outside face of the dumbbell. These brands include IRON COMPANY, Iron Grip and Intek. Ivanko actually uses a proprietary way of fastening the heads to the handles that they claim is equally as strong as welding. These urethane dumbbells all come with a 5-6 year warranty.
Bolted Urethane Dumbbells – For a more economical way to manufacture urethane dumbbells, some are produced using cast iron or steel heads that are then bolted to each handle. CAP Barbell uses a heavy-duty bolt-on system with steel inserts. This bolt and steel insert assembly is then fully welded together giving their urethane dumbbells a commercial grade strength rating. And American Barbell (formerly GPI) uses a Uni-Lock assembly which is made up of extremely high tensile strength steel handles which have a course thread applied to the ends and are connected to the steel head using a large, heavy-duty nut that is mechanically torqued together. These dumbbells also come with a 5-year warranty against breakage.
