Specifications and Key Features
Heavier models of dumbbells must have an option of adding more weight to the handle, so when an increase in capacity is need, the length of the dumbbell will as well increase. Compared to other available dumbbells in the industry, Weider SpeedWeight 100 Dumbbells has a higher minimum weight. The minimum weight of the Weider is between 10 and 15 pounds while the others begin at a mere 5 pounds.
The changes made to the selector mechanism of the dumbbell is one of the major improvements the company did. The dumbbell utilizes the handle to make the changes on the weight setting. Rotating the handle causes the metal cams to move from both sides and grab tight the weight plate that is needed. A single turn of the handle will enable the weights on each end of the dumbbell to be changed simultaneously. This is one of the features that makes it stand out among competitors.

Pros of the SpeedWeight 100 Dumbbells
The technology set by Weider in weight selection makes it simple. Changing the weight is easy since you only need to turn the handle. There is no chance of it breaking when changing the weights since the shifting is completed with only one bar. The single metal unit that allows the shifting helps too.
The dumbbells comes with a stand and that makes it an added advantage. Buying the stand separately is expensive. The stand is made from solid steel and it is very heavy. It naturally fits the dumbbells and it cannot easily break.
The pricing is fair compared to other adjustable dumbbells in the industry. The pricing works on many budgets levels and can save money. Instead of buying a weight for each level which is expensive, you can just buy one.
