Description

This trampoline sports classic, unassuming looks with a twist – it’s available in different pad colors. Other than that, it won’t turn heads, but that’s okay. It’s not meant for showing off anyways.

Where the trampoline really shines is sheer usability. The trampoline provides enough bounciness for young and adults alike; it is intended for ages 6 and up. Its six legs ensure great structural stability when jumping thanks to its T-socket technology, while good quality, responsive bounce is provided by 72 springs, each 5.5 inches long. This is a standard amount for 12-ft trampolines and you shouldn’t settle for less.

Another plus point is the excellent availability of spare parts. Many can be bought from third-party retailers at moderate prices, in contrast to some other trampoline makers that do not provide any spare parts.

The tightly woven safety net itself is 77 inches high. This means ample safety for you and your family. The enclosure poles are padded for extra safety in case of collision with the pole. The safety net is on the inside of the springs – meaning that springs lie completely outside the jumping area.

The trampoline – or, rather, the pad – is available in three colors: red, blue, and green. Expect the pad to fail first. It is known to fray and discolor, but that’s nothing major.

Our only gripe is the fairly low weight limit of just 200 lbs (90 kg), but at least you can be sure knowing the limit is real. If anything, it is understated and can certainly take on at least 50 lbs. more – but we cannot officially endorse this: should anything fail, it’s not covered by warranty if you’re over the weight limit.

The trampoline bears the ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) seal of approval. It’s not necessary for trampolines, but it’s a good certificate that proves the adequate quality of construction.

The warranty period, while on the short side, is not bad with a year on the metal structure and 90 days on other parts. If you live in a windy area, consider purchasing ground stakes that can be used to secure the trampoline. The trampoline is weather-resistant, but severe weather can still damage it, especially the soft pad and foam materials. The metal frame is galvanized and should not rust if exposed to rain and snow. Ladders also cost extra, but they aren’t really necessary.

The customer support is fantastic and they are always eager to answer, sometimes even accepting out-of-warranty claims and dealing with them for free. It’s easy to overlook the influence of great after-purchase care, but it really shows.
