This is a classic rubberized dumbbell set from Titan Fitness. It includes 5 pairs of dumbbells, but as opposed to the CAP Barbell Rubberized Dumbbell Set that we’ve also described here, this Titan set does not include the rack for the dumbbell. It also lacks the 50 lbs pair of dumbbells, but on the other hand, it costs approx. $120 less.

Technical Details and Specifications

  • Weight range: 5-25 lbs (2.26 kg – 11.3 kg)
  • Weight increments: 5 lbs (2.26 kg)
  • Warranty: 1 year limited

Dumbbells construction and weight increments

This Titan Fitness dumbbell set included 5 pairs of dumbbells, with the following weights (per dumbbell): 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 lbs (2.26, 4.5, 6.8, 9, 11.3 kg). In other words, you’ll get a total weight of 150 lbs (68 kg). The total weight of the set is incorrectly displayed (as 75 titan-fitness-5-25-knurled-handlelbs) on various websites, including the official website. This being said, the set offers weight increments of 5 lbs (2.26 kg), and since they’re simple, fixed dumbbells, it’s easy to swap between sets, which makes them perfect for training regimens that require weights of various sizes.

In case you’re wondering about their dimensions, the largest dumbbells from the set have a length of approx. 10″ (25 cm), their heads being 4″ (10 cm) wide.

The included dumbbells have the same construction as the ones in comprised by the Body-Solid SDRS550 set. They’re hex dumbbells with their weight heads coated by a layer of rubber. The rubberized layer keeps the metallic dumbbell weight heads from rusting, protects the floors from nicks and scratches in case you drop them by mistake, and also give the dumbbells a much more appealing aspect.

The dumbbells’ weight heads feature an extremely secure connection system to the handles. They won’t rattle or wobble when used, as some of the classic adjustable dumbbells might. They have steel inserts, they’re pinned, press-fitted and welded, which means the weight heads can’t possible fall from their axles. They’re made of durable cast iron.

The handles feature an arched design, with a knurled, chrome finish. Their grip offers the optimal comfort and adherence. The knurling portions aren’t too sharp, thus the handles shouldn’t be excessively abrasive to your hands. The chrome finish on them is durable and should last for many years of use.

The Pros

  • Sturdy and reliable hex dumbbells;
  • Cast iron weight heads, rubber-coated to keep rust at bay and protect flooring;
  • Knurled and contoured handles for maximum comfort, and a sure-grip;
  • Chrome finish on the handles to keep rust away;
  • No adjustments required, you simply pick-up the set you need for your exercise;
  • 5 sets of dumbbells, with a weight range between 5-25 lbs, with increments of 5 lbs, great for beginners and intermediate users.

The Cons

  • The coating on dumbbells may emanate a faint rubber odor for a while, which can be an inconvenience.

Summary

This Titan Fitness dumbbell set includes 5 pairs of fixed-weight, hex dumbbells, with a weight range between 5-25 lbs. The dumbbells feature rubberized weight heads and ergo handles for maximum comfort. Even without a rack, the set doesn’t take much space. It’s an excellent dumbbell set for beginners and intermediate users. And finally, considering that the set costs less than $250 and its total weight is 150 lbs, you’ll basically pay less than $1 per pound of iron, which is not bad.
