While not being the most refined among trampolines, ExacMe 14-ft. trampoline sets out to impress with its 96 springs and a good enclosure at a bargain bin price.
And the experiment is a success. Due to a large number of springs, the bounce is phenomenal for the price range, and will certainly satisfy a majority of casual users. The UV resistant polypropylene mat does the job just fine. The pads around the mat could be a bit thicker, but they’re above our minimum safety requirements.
Frame & Enclosure
The frame is galvanized to stave off rust and there are four strong legs in total. The netting, while obviously inferior to that in the premiums, is sufficiently sturdy and safe. It withstood our attempts to damage it. We liked how the netting is sewn onto the mat; i.e. the springs are outside the enclosure so you can’t fall onto them. The manufacturer is confident in the quality of the trampoline, given the 400 lbs. weight limit.
This is one of the best parts of this trampoline. The mat is bouncy and springy. There’s a nice feeling you get when you bounce that resembles some of the more expensive trampolines out there. We could see ourselves bouncing on this for hours on end.
ExacMe didn’t skimp on the number of springs – whopping 96 springs is something most trampolines of this size don’t offer, let alone in this price range. The 15ft model of ExacMe round trampoline comes with an even larger number, 108. The springs each measure 6.5-inches in length and are 0.12-inches thick. An added benefit is the ladder for easy entry – and it’s not that one-leg excuse for a ladder; this is a fully-fledged one.
Our main gripe with this trampoline is its short warranty period of only 90 days. This is unfortunate as the trampoline is well-made and will certainly last for a while. The instruction booklet leaves a lot to be desired, but with a little bit of guessing you can make out what’s required of you. Do find someone to help you with assembly, as the trampoline is big and comes in three bulky boxes. Some have reported missing nuts and bolts – unfortunately, this happens all too often with the cheaper trampolines, but getting a replacement shouldn’t be an issue.
While not as refined or premium as the other trampolines, the ExacMe 14ft round trampoline is all bang for your buck. And here it succeeds – its cost is only a fraction of the premium trampolines, and it is reasonably safe. Unlike some of the cheaper trampolines, the bounce on this one is really good as well, making Exacme the best-buy trampoline.
