NOTE: while the slotted style (OMEZS) of cast-iron EZ-Lift will remain available in kilos, we are discontinuing in 2023, this slotted style in pounds. Available while supplies last in sets that include 45, 35 and 25 lb plates.
IVANKO'S patented E=Z Lift Plate features a traditional, round shape, multi opening, E-Z Lift design.
Our OMEZS plates incorporate 7 slotted openings, not just two or three. These extra openings dramatically improve handling off the floor and on and off all machines or bars. IVANKO E-Z Lift plates are the same diameter as conventional round Olympic plates and easily integrate with existing plates in the family.
All of the slotted openings on IVANKO cast iron plates have smooth radii and rounded edges for maximum comfort and safety while grabbing the plates. Because they are round, there are no sharp "points" or "edges" to cut floors and damage equipment as with "anti-roll" designs. IVANKO'S rounded, contour shape of the plate conforms better to the hand, making it easier to carry. We round all edges to make it more comfortable to hold onto.
Available in baked-on, polyester based, hammer tone grey painted finish.

NOTE: These cast iron plates are manufactured by sand castings. They are not machined from solid billet. Due to the inherent nature of the sand casting process, not two plates are exactly alike. Variations will occur. Among these variations are surface consistency and porosity. These variations do not constitute defects, but are inherent to the casting process.
