CARBYNE Adjustable Dumbbells

Packing up to 26 dumbbells into 1, the CARBYNE Adjustable Dumbbell is one of the best adjustable dumbbells in the world. There are 2 colour variants (Silver and Black) and 3 weight variants (23.5kg, 32.5kg, and 41.5kg). These dumbbells all start from 4kg and adjusts in 1.5kg increments.

The CARBYNE Silver dumbbells feature an all-metal design (except for the internal switching mechanisms). Each plate is connected via a top and bottom latch that is molded as part of the plate itself. In contrast, the CARBYNE Black dumbbells feature best-in-class nylon latches, reducing rattling noises dramatically.

The CARBYNE dumbbells feature a relatively thick handle that is 36mm in diameter. The knurling is fine, allowing for a larger surface area of contact with your palms and feeling 'stickier' than regular knurled dumbbells.

Which Is More Suitable For You?

If you are auditorily sensitive: Opt for the CARBYNE Black or Quick Adjustable Dumbbell.

If you have really small hands: Opt for the Quick Adjustable Dumbbell which features a thinner handle.

If you have budget concerns: Opt for the Quick Adjustable Dumbbell. Alternatively, you may consider paying in installments for the CARBYNE Silver/Black (Atome available).

Above all else, consider the weight options (both the total weight and incremental adjustments). The CARBYNE Adjustable Dumbbells adjust in 1.5kg increments, whereas the Quick Adjustable Dumbbells adjust in 2.25kg/2.5kg increments for the 36kg/40kg models. If you prefer small increments when progressing in your fitness journey, the CARBYNE dumbbells will definitely be more suitable for you.
