Of all the models in our , it didn’t take long for us to choose this one as our favorite recreational trampoline.
One reason for this is because it has one key trait that makes it stand apart from most others – its legs.
If you’ve read through our buyers guide, you’ll already know how much we appreciate W-Shaped legs on trampolines. W-shaped legs offer superior support by dispersing weight and force, even on uneven, soft surfaces like grass. Such legs are themselves also more durable and reduce the strain on the jumping mat, helping it last longer as well.
Taking Things Up a Level
This trampoline steps safety and stability up a notch. Instead of using only its W-shaped legs, it also has straight legs that extend down along sides of each W-shaped leg. These aren’t there to support the main frame, though; they are meant to support the safety net. Most safety nets are supported by the same poles that attach to the frame of the trampoline, making this protective feature much more reliable in comparison.
Special connectors link the two kinds of legs to each other, too, offering even more stability to both the net and the trampoline as a whole.
Safety is further improved by a padded mat covering the springs, so if safety is something that concerns you (and we’re thinking of parents everywhere now), this trampoline is not a bad choice. An even better option might be Zupapa’s Safump though, because the net is inside of the spring cover to prevent any possible contact with the springs.
The 15-foot wide version of this trampoline has a perfectly adequate 375-pound weight capacity. If you’re looking for a trampoline that’ll support four or five adults, though, you’ll either need to upgrade your price range or lower your expectations. If this describes you, you could have a look at the “advanced” trampolines we’ve included on this list, like the Acon Air Sport HD or the JumpSport AlleyOOP VariableBounce.
A Trampoliner Favorite
