Acon Trampoline Air 16 Sport HD
The Acon Trampoline Air 16 Sport is one of the most heavy-duty trampolines that we’ve seen so far. This Finnish product isn’t the most exciting in terms of design more so if you are used to the generic blue color. But that’s because its manufacturer wanted to give you a no-nonsense intense workout tool with function over form from bottom up.
The fact that this trampoline has unlimited single-user weight limit is enough to summarize everything about its quality construction.
This professional trampoline has an extremely heavy-duty frame made from a 2.4-inch wide tube with a thickness of 0.1 inches. These are the thickest poles that we’ve seen used on a tramp and they eliminate all doubts that you’d have regarding its infinite weight limit claims.
The polypropylene mat, with a stealthy all-black design and some stylish blue accents, just received an update and has been cross-sewn 10 times. Basically, there’s no way you’ll ever slice through it with your feet. This mat stands 40 inches from the ground and offers an awesome 120 sq. ft of usable surface. It also boasts a UV-coating treatment for optimum durability.
Another thing that makes this one of the best professional trampolines in the market is its 140 10-inch springs. If you are not new to trampolines, you’ll know that the number and length of springs correlate with the bounce. So, it’s not surprising that this is one of the bounciest trampolines in the world too.
Its polyester net is also fantastic for its intended job and the solid poles have been padded for additional safety. Although the spring padding isn’t the thickest that we’ve seen, it’s still perfectly adequate in our opinion.
- Extremely heavy-duty frame and mat
- Very bouncy
- Unlimited single-user weight limit
- Very large jumping surface
- Very heavy to move around
Professional trampolines are all about high levels of safety- and it’s hard to think of this aspect without the safest trampoline in the world coming into focus.
Our next recommendation for the best professional trampolines in 2019 is the Springfree Jumbo Square, and it’s just as its name suggests- spring-free. In place of the springs, tramps from this brand use fiberglass rods that offer smoother bounces with minimal risk of injuries.
While this model measures 13 feet pole-to-pole, you can also get it in round or oval shape. We preferred to go with the Jumbo Square, first because of its shape. Square trampolines are known to be bouncier than their round alternatives. Although their bounce is less powerful than you’d get on a rectangular trampoline, this actually makes them relatively safer since the risk of shooting off the jumping mat is greatly reduced.
The Springfree 13ft Jumbo has a total height of 9.3ft. The frame is sturdy and has a double powder coating and has also been galvanized to guarantee years of enjoyment. Interestingly, this frame is located beneath the mat and it’s practically hard to hit it regardless of the intensity of your stunts.
This trampoline has a weight limit of 200lbs but its 1100-pound structural weight capacity suggests that it’s capable of withstanding much higher weights without issues.
Warranty is 8 years for the frame if you register the tramp, and 2 years on all other parts.
- Premium build quality
- Excellent safety features
- Easy assembly thanks to clear instructions
- Costs top dollar
- Relatively lower weight limit for the price
JumpSport AlleyOOP DoubleBounce
Round trampolines are held in high regard for their ability to pull the jumper towards the center. This means that no matter how bouncy the rebounder is- which is a good thing for a professional trampoline- the springs pull you away from the hard edge thereby lowering the risk of crashing onto the hard frame.
The AlleyOOP 14’ DoubleBounce PowerBounce is considered the best professional round trampoline by most people for 2 major reasons; its high and smooth bounces and its high safety level.
This is the only trampoline in this list that has a double mat design. This is a patented technology that works by creating a shock-absorption zone.
According to the manufacturer, this design makes the AlleyOOP 14’ 50% more forgiving compared to conventional trampolines thereby making it much safer for tricks. The smoother bounces also make it a reliable bet if you are looking for a professional trampoline for multiple jumpers.
Another unique feature that is responsible for this trampoline’s high bounces is its 192 high-performance springs. But what you’ll like most is that the bounce is adjustable according to the age, weight, and skill level of the jumper- a feature that really comes in handy for budding professional gymnasts.
The AlleyOOP has a single user rating of 295 pounds. Some of its safety features include a nicely padded spring system, a very stable frame with 4 w-shaped legs, a permatron net with 10 rows of stitching, and a stay-on fail-safe enclosure net.
As an assurance of high-quality construction materials, the steel frame and legs are covered with a lifetime warranty. The jumping mat and net get 10 years and the springs guarantee at least 5 years of usage.
- Very smooth bounces
- Very quiet
- Leading warranty deals
- Excellent customer service
- It’s pricey
- Assembly isn’t the easiest
Vuly Thunder Trampoline with Leaf Springs
The Vuly Thunder is yet another highly recommendable trampoline for professionals. While its price is notably on the higher side of the price spectrum, we feel this trampoline is still worth considering if you would like a model that eliminates the hustle of replacing springs.
Similar to the Springfree Jumbo Square that we’ve just seen, the Vuly Thunder does not use springs. This trampoline uses leaf springs that are positioned beneath the jumping mat as opposed to conventional springs that are attached along the edges of the mat.
The unique leaf springs of the Thunder create an amazing amount of bounce that is also very smooth for safe jumps.
This trampoline comes in the classic round shape only and it’s available in 3 sizes; XL (15ft pole-to-pole diameter and 12.5ft mat diameter), L (14.5’ total diameter and 10.5’ mat diameter), and M (12’ total diameter and 8.5’ mat diameter).
This tramp uses 2 frames that are interconnected to eliminate any kind of movement. The frames are made of galvanized steel and have a second layer of rust-resistant powder coating. The 10-year warranty that covers these frames is proof of their quality.
The jumping mat, on the other hand, is made of polypropylene with 6 rows of stitching. What you’ll like about this mat is that it’s usable all the way to the edge.
The Vuly Thunder has been tested to hold the weight of a small car- yes, that’s how strong it is. However, the manufacturer recommends a single user maximum weight limit of 330 pounds which is still very high and convenient for most professional jumpers.
One last thing: if you go with this trampoline, you’ll be buying all the replacement parts at half the price for its lifetime- who beats such a great deal?
- Very heavy duty
- Large jumping surface
- Lifetime half-price replacement parts
- High weight limit
- 1-year warranty for leaf springs is low for such a pricey tramp
The best professional trampolines are quite pricey… but not all them. The Skybound Stratos is among a few other tramps that come at a relatively lower price tag without compromising on bounce and safety.
Compared to other models that we’ve seen so far, the Stratos seems to be the only model that was engineered to tick all the vital checkboxes including aesthetics. The curved enclosure net support poles and yellow accents on the spring padding and net give it an exotic and dynamic look.
This tramp is available in 3 sizes; 12ft, 14ft, and 15ft and boasts a 330-pound weight limit. The frame is crafted from a 0.05-inch thick galvanized steel tube that has also been powder-coated to resist rusting.
For top-notch stability, this trampoline is fitted with 6 (not 4) w-shaped legs and they have also been powder-steel coated for maximum durability.
The jumping mat is made of Permatron- if you have a good experience with professional trampoline mats, then you know the quality offered by this material.
Permatron is a very high-quality fabric made by loading polypropylene with carbon. It has a very smooth surface and high tensile strength and it’s also water and mold resistant.
We won’t say that the assembly process is lightning-quick as Skybound claims. However, the push-pin installation technology that eliminates screwdrivers, bolts, and nuts and other assembly tools do make setting up this tramp easy.
Thanks to the clear instructions, we expect even the least experienced to assemble it in under 2 hours. You’ll definitely require some extra hands due to the size, though.
- Straightforward installation
- Seemingly durable
- High-quality build
- Sleek design
- Relatively pricey
Buying a trampoline for regular use is an easy affair; you only need to get a size that fits in your allotted space and meets all your safety requirements and budget. But there’s more to that when purchasing a professional trampoline.
Here are some of the vital considerations that guided us when making this list
The shape of the trampoline has a significant contribution to its overall performance, price, and placement.
Rectangular trampolines are the best for professional use and they are actually a reserve for athletes due to their high bounce.
Square trampolines, on the other hand, have a lower bounce than rectangle tramps. But this what makes them ideal for budding gymnasts and athletes.
Round trampolines are the most popular and easiest to find with the only catch being their lower bounce. Several trampoline manufacturers, however, are finding ways to go around this and we now have several round models that offer professional-grade bounce such as the Alleyoop DoubleBounce.
A spacious trampoline is vital for trampoline tricks and stunts. However, a spacious tramp will be of no use if it’s not bouncy. While the shape of the trampoline has a say on its bounce, the number and size of the springs also matter a big deal. Tramps with more springs tend to create a higher bounce more so if the springs are long (Above 7.5 inches).
The reliability of a tramp boils down to the materials used for its construction. When evaluating the quality of the frame and poles, consider the diameter and actual thickness of the tubes used.
You also want to consider the materials used for the mat and net enclosure system. Polypropylene is the best material for professional trampoline mats at present. It gets much better if treated with carbon to make Permatron although this attracts a high price too. For the netting enclosure, consider brands that use polyethylene.
Which is the best professional gymnastic trampoline? We bet this depends on your budget and your level of experience. If we had to help you choose just one model from the list above, that would definitely be the Acon Air 16 Sport HD. Its unlimited single-user weight limit says it all. If you are looking for the best deal, though, the Vuly Thunder is hard to resist considering its lifetime half-price replacement parts deal.
