First of all, these dumbbells come as a set. You will receive two handles and 100 lbs worth of plates for each one of them. In other words, the set consists of 2 handles, 4 collars and 24 weight plates. They’re Standard dumbbells, the bars being 1″ (2.5 cm) thick, and the supplied weight plates also feature 1″ (2.5 cm) holes. The biggest weight plates are 9″ (23 cm) in diameter, dimension which actually gives the maximum width of the dumbbells.
The Omnie dumbbells are full-iron. There are no plastic inserts or any other elements in their construction, rather than the plates, collars and bars. The plates are made of cast iron, while the bars are made of solid steel. To be more specific the set features Standard Pro Iron weight plates, coated with corrosion resistant gray paint, with a gloss finish. This type of paint is actually thicker, and slightly superior than the usual enamel used in painted weight plates. It also doesn’t come off, does not stain clothing or your hands, and does not emanate any particular odor.
The bars are Standard, steel-made, with knurled handles to provide a superior grip. They’re coated with a layer of chrome, in order to prevent rust due to perspiration. Their “sleeves” are threaded, and the weight plates are held in plates by a set of two collars for each bar, collars which are also made of steel.
Adjustment system and increments
The Omnie dumbbells feature the same classic adjustment system as the Yes4All or Starring. You simply load the weight plates onto the bars, secure the collars on the threaded sleeves, and start exercising. It’s not exactly the fastest adjustment system, but on the other hand it’s extremely secure.
The dumbbell bars weigh 5 lbs (2.26 kg) each. And considering the fact that you’ll get 4 x 2.5 lbs (1.13 kg), 4 x 5.0 lbs (2.26 kg), and 16 x 10 lbs (4.5 kg) plates, it’s pretty obvious that you can adjust weight in increments of 5 lbs (2.26 kg) up to 100 lbs (45.3 kg) for each dumbbell. Thus, each dumbbell basically replaces 18 hex (or non-adjustable) dumbbells, the set saving you a lot of space.
- Sturdy, durable construction, without any plastic inserts or parts;
- Space-savvy. Each dumbbell basically replaces 18 fixed weight dumbbells;
- Versatile, easy to adjust, great for alternating exercises that require different weights;
- They basically cover the full range of exercises that you can achieve with dumbbells;
- You can have an off-set weight for each dumbbell, for more intense workouts;
- Durable, corrosion-resistant finish both on the plates and handles;
- Weight range between 5 and 100 lbs, great for users of all levels;
- Knurled handle for a secure grip.
Adjustment takes a bit long compared to PowerBlock dumbbells for example, which may be annoying if you follow various workout programs, such as P90X.
If you don’t want to spend over $500 on a selectorized dumbbell set, or even more on a set of hex dumbbells, free weight such as these Omnie dumbbells are a great choice. Their cost is basically $1 per pound, which is great. They’re made for prolonged use and abuse, you can drop them without the fear that you’ll break them, they’re easy to adjust, and don’t take a lot of space. Also, considering that they offer a weight range up to 100 lbs per dumbbell, they’re perfect for users of all levels, from beginners to seasoned fitness experts.
