This isn’t the first Skywalker trampoline on our list, nor in fact the last. Skywalker is a popular name in the trampolining world, known for the quality of their work.
Available in three different sizes and four different colors, this trampoline should suit almost any backyard. Its thick, galvanized, rust-resistant steel frame will stand up well to outdoor weather.
Also, its safety netting is held firmly in place with steel poles connected using strong t-connectors.
In fact, one of the best features of this trampoline is its seamless netting. On many other models, the net connects to the frame, jump surface, and spring area with clips, clamps or zippers. These designs leave gaps and spaces where arms and legs can slide underneath the netting, potentially causing injury. This trampoline doesn’t carry this risk, making it a good choice for entertaining younger children.
For a Specific Age Group
There is a clear downside to this trampoline, which we suspect explains why it is so affordable despite its quality construction and safety features: it has only a 200-pound weight limit. That means that this probably isn’t a trampoline you can share with your children or even use by yourself.
Remember that this maximum figure is the highest safe weight and not something to strive for: crowding it will reduce the lifespan of your trampoline significantly.
If your children are young, though, and you don’t plan to use the trampoline yourself, it could be a good, well-priced option for you.
Consider this – if your kids are between 4 to 9 years old you’ll probably need a new trampoline, anyway, by the time they outgrow its weight limit.
Overall, consumer feedback on this trampoline has been positive. Some people have reported minor issues with setting up the frame, but assembly seems to be a common complaint when it comes to home trampolines.
Other consumers have complained about the fact that it isn’t as elastic as other trampolines, but this is only to be expected in one intended primarily for kids.
The 5.5 to 7 inches springs (depending on the overall size of trampoline you purchase) are pretty short compared to top-of-the-line trampolines like the SkyBound Stratos Trampoline and the Acon Air Sport HD.
Shorter springs mean less rebound, which means that you don’t bounce as high. In the case of children, this allows them to have their fun, but will discourage them from trying somersaults and other possibly dangerous stunts.
- The seamless safety netting improves overall safety.
- You can choose among 4 different colors for the padding that covers the springs.
- It's built from high-quality materials.
- The short springs make for less of a rebound, but this many be better for children.
- Its weight limit is a mere 200 pounds, so it's really not for adults.
