Adjustable dumbbells have gained a lot of popularity with people wanting to build their own home gym. Now you have a lot of different options to choose from. One of them being Merax Deluxe adjustable dumbbells.
Benefits of Dumbbells.
Quick and easy to change the weight. Out of all the adjustable dumbbells, I have tried the selector dial adjustable dumbbells are the quickest and easiest to change weight. You don’t have to slide plates on and off and you don’t have to mess around with a U shaped pin that might slide out.
Adjustable dumbbells are a huge space saver. There is no need for 15 different pairs of dumbbells on a rack that takes up a lot of space. I slide my Bowflex dumbbells under my adjustable bench when I’m not using them saving tons of space.
Less joint pain. When you use dumbbells your movements are more natural. Let’s use the bench press for example. When you’re using a bar your hands are going to be on the bar and you can’t move them in any direction. When you use adjustable dumbbells your hands can move from side to side in a more natural movement.
More range of motion. When you use dumbbells you can go further engaging more muscle which means more gains and more calories burned during your workout.
Safety. If you are someone who works out alone like I do a barbell is not always the best option. We will use the bench press for example again. If you have a barbell loaded with weight and all of the sudden you get a pain or you just can’t get that last rep up now you have a barbell sitting on your chest. With adjustable dumbbells, you can always lower one dumbbell at a time and avoid injury.

What Does The Mirax Deluxe Adjustable Dumbbells Have To Offer?
Each dumbbell adjusts from 11 to 71.5 lbs in 5.5 lb increments. Giving you 12 different weight settings.
Each dumbbell also has an antiskid handle and a base for the dumbbells and weights your not using to sit in.
Each dumbbell is 16 1/4 inches in overall length.
These adjustable dumbbells are the dial selector type they have a dial selector on each end. To select the weight you want you push the red safety lock and turn the dial to the weight you want.
The safety lock is a nice feature it keeps you from accidentally moving the dial while doing your workout, Wich could make one of the weights fall off.
Now one thing about these dumbbells you should know is the weight says from 11lbs to 71.5 lbs. That is true but on the weight selector dial, all of the weights are in kilograms.
- Here is a chart with the weights converted from kg to lbs.
- 5kg = 11lbs
- 7.5kg = 16.5lbs
- 10kg = 22lbs
- 12.5kg = 27.5lbs
- 15kg = 33lbs
- 17.5kg = 38.6lbs
- 20kg = 44lbs
- 22.5kg = 49.6lbs
- 25kg = 55lbs

Right out of the box I am very impressed. Feels and looks quality and well made. Rubber grips are excellent and comfortable to grasp. Switching mechanism is firm, fast,smooth and very easy to dial in the weight choice I want. My first workout with them I immediately noticed that the PowerBlocks I used for years were restricting my wrist and arm/chest movements by making me go deep into the block. These feel more natural, better full range of movement and balance with a full extension for the exercise muscle group.
I had used Powerblocks for the past 7 years. I wanted to upgrade to the 70# level and found I had to purchase the newer model and do the weight upgrades pushing a 20# per hand addition to over $450 … crazy marketing so it pushed me out to looking around for what is out there now. I researched them all. Bowflex seemed like the way to go at first until I read the reviews … was very reluctant to leave the Powerblock system but real happy I did for these Merax. I will write more after I use them a few months. PS they shipped real fast. I was given a 5 day window they could come in beginning 5 days after I ordered. They shipped them immediately and I got all four boxes by FedEx a day earlier than the earliest promised date. Good job! I do not see how anyone can compete with Amazon and this system of purchasing … I tried to shop local but the shops did not have choices, their prices were $100’s over this and they just did not want to take the time to service my sales inquiry … Amazon is nailing the whole purchase process and I love the fact I can research real product reviews.

Simple to use, easy to setup.
The weight labels aren’t exactly correct. They’ll be labeled “10”, but actually weighs about 22lbs. The maximum weight on the side is 32.5lbs, which should equate to 65lbs, but actually weighs like 72lbs. The labels are ballparks at best which isn’t a big deal when you’re at a lower weight, but starts to have a higher disparity when you go up in weight.
All in all, it’s a great little weight, hasn’t slipped on me, easy to adjust, etc. I’m happy with it.

We struggled just a little bit to get the complete “set” — That is, a pair of dumbbells which actually eventually came in a total of four boxes. Thank you to Amazon AND to Merax for finally getting everything to us. On quality, we are pleased with these weights. They are well constructed and pretty easy to use. Weights are in kilograms, so I printed and laminated a simple conversion sheet that we have posted near our bench. Actually, there are MANY combinations of weighting available with this set, meaning you can really fine tune your routine, I WOULD re-purchase, and my only reason for 4 versus 5 stars is the delays in shipping and the needs to communicate multiple times.
The Final Stretch
The Merax Deluxe adjustable dumbbells seem to be a very good adjustable dumbbell. I do think the 5.5lbs increments will be too much for some people. Especially when you are doing exercises that require lower weights.
The weights on the weight selector are in kilograms not lbs, but you could always make a chart so you know what the weights are in lbs.
Out of all the reviews, the only bad reviews are that some of them come with scratches. Most people seem happy with their purchase.

Best of luck in reaching your fitness goals.
