Just a point of clarification. Dallera made a comment that made me check the specs on the first page of this thread. Apparently, the Rumbux plate is STEEL, and not Aluminum. Hence, it has a similar weight but half of the thickness of the RideOnAdv plate, at a similar weight. Is this accurate?

If so, can we change the specs page to not say "aluminum thickness" but just "thickness", and then quote Al or Steel? For every plate listed? Most values are 3mm - 4mm, and the assumption is that the material is Al.

The next question is: what is the relative durability and protectivenss of the two materials in these specific thickenesses (3mm steel vs. 6mm Al) for their similar weight?
