The Hit Fitness Rubber Round Head Dumbbells are made from high grade rubber and steel so are made to last. The rubber coating on each end of the dumbbell minimises the noise when it touches the ground or other equipment which also limits the damage done to both the dumbbell and the floor.
Rubber Dumbbells vs. Cast Iron Dumbbells

Cast iron dumbbells are the traditional and old school dumbbell that is full cast iron and has no coating.
