Springfree is a story of a single man on a mission with a brilliant idea. It is the brainchild of Dr Keith Alexander, a mechanical engineer who considered the then-existing trampolines to be too unsafe and went on to develop his own design.
It took the Kiwi engineer 5 years to perfect a prototype, from 1992 to 1997. He partnered with Steve Holmes and turned the prototype into a workable product. Thus, in 2003, the first Springfree Trampoline was born! Just a year later, the company expanded into Australia and Canada, with the US and the UK coming soon afterwards. Springfree now operates in 15 countries and employs over 300 people and manufactures multiple shapes of springless trampolines.
Its trampolines have won numerous ‘Product of the Year’ titles and are widely considered among the safest trampolines around. The trampolines don’t have metal springs but use reinforced glass-plastic rods. In 2015, they launched the world’s first Smart trampoline that uses their proprietary tgoma gaming system.
So far, we haven’t seen a bad Springfree trampoline and we don’t think we ever will. Thumbs up to Mr Alexander!
