Titan Fitness Silencer Drop Pads
User Review( vote)
The Titan Fitness Silencer Drop Pads are a cost-effective crash pad that delivers a relatively dense foam that does a good job of reducing vibration and noise while providing very little barbell bounce.
- Does a great job of reducing noise.
- Reduces vibration surprisingly well.
- Medium density foam is great for the price.
- Vinyl is thick compared to other crash pads.
- Stitching leaves something to be desired.
- Carry handles pull on the looser PVC covering.
The Titan Fitness Silencer Drop Pads are an affordable and sturdy option for anyone looking to reduce noise and vibration when dropping heavy weights onto their floor. We emphasize the affordable part of these pads because at $149.99 they are one of the most affordable options in their class.
At 6-inches thick and packed with a dense foam, each of the 24 x 30-inch pads do a great job of muffling the noise caused by overhead drops. Dave Chung has a great video demonstrating the efficacy of the pads.
Protecting the dense foam is a PVC cover that seems up to the job although the quality is not quite on par with the Rogue Fitness Crash Pads or the Rep Drop Pads. Quickly unzipping the pad and feeling it reveals a much thinner option than more expensive crash pads. While we prefer better stitching and an increase in quality on most pad coverings for our various pieces of equipment, the frequency of use for these pads in a home gym leaves us less worried about Titan’s pads losing their luster anytime soon.
We’re not the only people who believe the pads are worth the money, despite a slight step down in quality.
While the Titan Fitness Silencer Drop Pads have slightly increased in price in recent months, the fact that they’re about one-third the price of the industries leading pads is a good sign. If they wear down you can buy the pads two more times and still nearly come out on top.
Coop mentioned in his review above that the Titan Fitness Silencer Drop Pads were not as dense compared to the industry-leading Sound Pad. The less-dense setup might actually serve a purpose we didn’t think about until watching the video from Joel at As Many Reviews As Possible — The Titan Fitness Crash Pads actually have less bounce when hitting the less dense pads.
The pads also feature carry handles that make them easy to transport. It’s a simple feature but makes a difference when you’re constantly moving the pads around your garage gym or even a commercial setting. Our one issue with the handles is that they pull on the PVC covering which may cause undue stress on the cover over time.
We don’t perform a lot of overhead drops at Garage Gym Products but the pads are just as easily used to drop our dumbbells, kettlebells, and Sorinex Center Mass Bells on after workouts. With a brand new, recently installed polyaspartic floor, protecting our expensive surface is incredibly important and these pads do the job with no complaints.
It’s hard to argue with saving hundreds of dollars, even when the quality is a significant drop down from the industry-leading product. Still, the Titan Fitness Silencer Drop Pads get the job done and we recommend them over more expensive pads. You can buy them now for just $149.99 + Free Shipping.
I love this Titan product but one of my handles had a stitching issue when I received it from a friend. They said it was like that when they got it. TBH it doesn’t the use of the product overall but I can see where the cheaper stitching on the handle led to a bit of pulling on the threads.
