10 Gorgeous Trampoline for Adults – Our Top Reviews (2018)

SkyBound Stratos Trampoline with Full EnclosureTrampolines are a simple way to have fun and exercise. That said, singling out the best trampoline for adults isn’t the easiest thing on earth.

That’s because adults, obviously, unlike kids weigh more and that puts more strain on the springs. You’d, therefore, be better off going for a unit that’s well built, rugged, and huge.

The next few lines discuss the 10 most popular trampolines for adults plus some factors to keep in mind so you can make an informed purchase.

The Skywalker 15-Feet Round Trampoline

Skywalker Trampolines 15-Foot Round Trampoline and Enclosure with Spring Pad

 Skywalker is one of the most popular names in the field of trampoline manufacture.

But does their 15-foot round trampoline live up to its expectations?

First off, it’s cheaply priced yet it comes with a few add-ons which give you absolutely good value for your money.

Its frame is made from heavy-duty rust-resistant steel which provides great support and durability. And to add onto the great support system are T-sockets which eliminate any chances of the trampoline twisting.

The Skywalker’s netting is made from high-quality nylon meaning its strong enough to put up with heavy use. For instance, it’s connected to the main structure through special button-holes. These eliminate gaps and ensure the net looks neat and complete.

There’s adequate padding all around its circumference. This is extremely important especially when you want to make extremely high jumps.

Can you imagine what would happen if you made a high, inaccurate jump only to end up landing on a metal rod?

Well, the Skywalker already has that potential glitch solved for you through the generous padding of all of its edges. Also, this net is designed in a way that it securely attaches beneath the jumping mat. That means if in case you jump out of the play area, you’d still be safe. In that case, you’d hit the net and fall back onto the padding.

So, at its price, we think the Skywalker 15 foot trampoline is a steal. Most of the trampolines which compete for a top spot with it cost a few hundreds of dollars more than it. So we think this represents good value for money.

  • Product
Features:

  • Reinforced T-sockets to prevent structural twisting
  • Patented button holes to eliminate V-ring gaps
  • Heavy-duty steel frame
  • 6 W-shaped legs to provide extra security and stability
  • All materials used are UV protected

Conclusion

This is a “fun” trampoline which can be assembled easily. Despite this, it is quite powerful and rigid in addition to having a wide variety of safety features. We’d recommend it as a fun trampoline rather than a professional training one.

PROS:
  • Affordably priced
  • High-quality rust-resistant steel
  • Ideal for all-weather use
  • Ample padding for extra safety
  • Features firm T sockets that prevent the frame from twisting
  • UV resistant materials used
  • Great value for money

CONS:
  • Arrives in two separate boxes yet meaning you have to wait for two shipments to arrive
  • Not ideal for more than 2 adults at a time due to a 200-pound weight limit

Zupapa Trampoline with Enclosure Net

 Zupapa 15 14 12 Ft TUV Approved Trampoline with Enclosure Net and Pole and Safety Pad and Ladder

 Looking for the perfect trampoline for adults and kids?

The Zupapa is a one-stop-shop for trampoline users from all walks of life. The first major selling point of this unit is that it has up to 375-pound weight limit. That means two or three adults can use it at once without it getting wobbly.

For added security, this trampoline comes with powerful net poles. As you know, even though net poles are meant to add to your safety, they can always become hazardous if a jump goes wrong. To prevent that from happening, Zupapa has all the poles enclosed in a 10mm blue foam. This provides a much-needed cushioning which can prevent injuries.

Moving forward, this trampoline is TUV certified. What’s TUV certification for trampoline all about?

Well, TUV is a German safety standard which applies to all legitimate German-made products. Therefore, the fact that Zupapa features this certification is proof that it’s reliable.

Besides that, this unit comes with tightly bundled poles and legs. The idea behind this is to eliminate any chances of structural twisting. What’s more? Its frame is entirely made from galvanized steel of 42 mm thickness.

The springs are also quite well made. They measure a generous 7 inches and provide exceptional bounciness. And it gets better because the springs are padded with UV resistant polypropylene. So, this end, we can confidently confirm that Zupapa trampoline has your entire family’s safety at heart.

  • Product
Features:

  • Zero-gap jumping mat design
  • 10-year warranty
  • Convenient boarding ladder
  • High-quality steel frame used
  • All materials are UV protected
  • Comes with helpful videos to help in the assembly process
  • 2 free pairs of gloves for save installation
  • 6 wind stakes included for easy grounding

Conclusion

This trampoline is reputed for its ability to combine safety with durability. Its safety features go above and beyond what you’d expect of an under $500 trampoline. We’d, therefore, recommend it for parents with teenagers or couples looking to have more fun around the house.

PROS:
  • Strong zippered net
  • Adequate padding for extra safety
  • Convenient ladder and shoe holder
  • UV resistant materials used

Trampoline Merax 14-Feet with Basketball Hoop

 Merax SW000009FAA 14' Round Trampoline

 Jumping up and down the trampoline may seem lovely and fun but this can get monotonous over time. That’s where a trampoline with a basketball hoop comes in. The Merax 14 is one of the very few kid-friendly trampolines that allow maximum fun.

It is made using heavy-duty steel which makes it strong, durable and stable though a bit heavy. On top of that, it comes complete with a safety net which is intelligently installed complete with a safety padding.

In general, the Merax 14 measures 14 feet wide. And with a 300-pound weight capacity, the unit is more than enough for 5 kids or 2 adults. Each one of the pieces required to set up the entire system is easy-to-identify and use. In fact, this unit isn’t as complicated to install as you’d ordinarily expect.

Imagine what it would be like to experience the effect of 72 galvanized springs working beneath your feet?

This trampoline is quite enjoyable to use plus it comes with a wide variety of safety features. It can also be used as a workout trampoline for adults though in that case, we’d recommend one adult at a time.

  • Product
Features:

  • Heavy-duty galvanized steel ladder
  • Rust-resistant galvanized steel
  • Handy basketball hoop for extra entertainment
  • 6 powerful W-shaped legs for stability
  • UV protection for outdoor use

Conclusion

The combination of features used in this trampoline makes it a perfect bet for anyone who might be looking for variety. On top of that, the Merax 14 passes and even exceeds the recommended safety standards. We’d recommend it mainly for young adults although anyone can use it for agility, balance, and coordination training.

PROS:
  • Perfectly sized ladder
  • Straightforward setup guidelines
  • Great basketball hoop
  • Provides additional foam protection to the staircase and round poles
  • Great color combination

CONS:
  • The basketball hoop could be sturdier
  • The installation manual leave out some crucial assembly instructions

Pro Tip

Avoid bouncing when drunk or using drugs/medication that may impair your judgment.

Skywalker Rectangle 15 Inch Trampoline

Skywalker Trampolines 15’ Rectangle Trampoline

 Admit it; you love spending time with your buddies having some fun on the trampoline. In that case, the Skywalker rectangle trampoline would be the most reliable choice for an uninterrupted evening of fun. Its unique rectangular shape provides it with extra stability which is perfect for athletes and gymnasts.

Just like other trampolines from Skywalker, this one comes with a no-gap enclosure system. That’s such an important safety feature especially since it reduces any chances of contact with the steel poles.

Further, the no-gap design comes with well-thought-out buttonhole features which connect the enclosure net directly to the V-ring. That effectively provides additional safety for jumpers since no ropes or strings are used.

Considering its design and safety features, we’d greatly recommend this as the go-to workout trampoline for adults. Thanks to its rectangular design, it provides more bounce and plenty of jumping room.

One thing we like about it is that it features a strong galvanized steel frame which prevents rust and corrosion. In addition, the trampoline uses T-sockets which prevent twisting and add integrity to the frame.

That said, the manufacturer recommends a maximum weight of 250 pounds for this. Therefore, it may not be wise to have more than 3 adults using it at any given time (if anything, experts recommend a 1 person at a time rule).

  • Product
Features:

  • UV protected surface ideal for outdoor use
  • Strong spring pad with 1-inch of thick foam padding
  • Powerful and safe enclosure netting
  • Well-designed enclosure interlocks complete with a jumping mat
  • Built in line with ASTM International standards recommendations

Conclusion

If you’re looking for a trampoline with a great amount of bounce, the Skywalker 15-Inch Rectangular Trampoline is a good bet.

We, however, think this wouldn’t be an ideal unit for little kids as its quite powerful. A strong bounce impact can lead to safety concerns. Otherwise, this is an awesome trampoline for a rugged, high-demanding, outdoor use

PROS:
  • Fade-resistant vinyl-coated spring pads
  • UV protected polypropylene material
  • Carefully woven material effectively preventing slipping
  • Handy T-sockets to prevent structural twisting
  • Perfect jump mat with no-gap enclosure system

CONS:
  • The trampoline delivers a large bounce which can be dangerous for young kids
  • A little tricky to set up

Giantex Trampoline Combo Bounce Trampoline

Giantex Trampoline Combo Bounce Jump Safety Enclosure Net W/Spring Pad Ladder

 The Giantex Combo bounce enclosure comes with a number of great features among them a 72-spring system and a PP mesh type mat. That’s the perfect blend of features needed to take to new heights with extra confidence. In fact, you can decide to replace your daily jogging sessions with trampolining which is equally (if not more) fun.

Looking closely at the Giantex Trampoline, you can’t help but appreciate that it comes with a well-made bounce safety enclosure. Picture this – it comes with a fully galvanized pipe frame with fine-tuned springs. On top of that, it has steel tubes which do an incredible job of connecting the enclosure net to the spring cover.

This unique design removes the gap that typically exists between the mat and the net. Of course, by eliminating this common flaw, the Giantex provides you with a better opportunity to enjoy yourself safely.

On top of that, this trampoline is pretty easy to assemble. Its core accessories are listed and properly numbered such that it’s pretty easy to fit every part of the jigsaw puzzle in its rightful place. We, however, are concerned that the Giantex doesn’t come with a ladder. Therefore, if you plan to have your kids use it, it would be a good idea to help them climb it.

Another potential hiccup with this machine is that it has a limited weight capacity of 200 pounds. You, therefore, would be safer using it, one adult at a time. Likewise, you can have one adult and two kids use it. Otherwise, overloading it would cause it to wobble.

That said, we like the fact that the Giantex combo is pretty well-made. It boasts a solid construction all thanks to its frame being made from powerful steel tubes.

What’s more?

If you’re planning to keep it outdoors, you’ll be glad to note that its frame has a special rust-resistant coating. So, you can leave it outdoors even during winter and still find it intact. Of course, it would always be wise to keep it in the garage when not in use so it lasts longer.

  • Product
Features:

  • Comes with powerful U-shaped legs
  • Strong safety enclosure net plus foam sleeves
  • Perfectly attached steel tubes to eliminate the gap between the net and mat
  • Provides all essential accessories among them a steel frame, enclosure combo and jumping mat
  • Heavy-duty jumping mat included
  • Its base is supported by 42 springs

Conclusion

This is a unique trampoline that promises nothing short of fun. It comes with a rich supply of strong springs which provide the safety and excitement expected from a well-made trampoline. On top of that, it’s durable and relatively easy to assemble.

PROS:
  • Available in multiple sizes so it can accommodate people of all sizes
  • Incredible height for unrestricted jumping
  • Soft, fast and stable springs
  • UV and rust protected material for longevity

CONS:
  • Doesn’t come with a ladder
  • The instruction manual could have been written in a simpler language

Pro Tip

The minimum age for using a trampoline is 6 years old.

Upper Bounce 10/12/14/15 Feet Trampoline

 Upper Bounce 15 FT. Trampoline

 If there’s one trampoline manufacturer who listens to feedback, it has to be Upper Bounce. Their trampoline is a classic example of what an easy-to-assemble trampoline should look like.

 So, what’s the catch?

The unit is quite big and heavy and, therefore, difficult to flip over. That, however, is a small price to pay for months if not weeks of safe trampolining. Talking about safety, this unit comes with PVC safety pads which contain a high-density closed-cell foam.

Why PVC?

You might want to ask. Well, PVC does not absorb mildew or water meaning you can leave the pads outdoors all day long with no worries. The intelligent design of these pads makes sure they never lose shape over time.

The same high level of design integrity is observed with the trampoline’s durable mats. Complete with 8-row stitching, this is probably the highest safety level we’ve encountered so far. As you know, the mats take all the weight when one is jumping up and down. Compromising on the mat would mean risking your entire life when you jump up and down the springboard.

Beneath the mat is a well-thought-out network of rust-resistant Upper Bounce springs. The springs are not only powerful but also crack-resistant meaning you can even trust them to remain stable in cold weather. And to make the deal even sweeter, instead of the usual 70 to 80 springs, this one comes with 96. That’s more than what you need to be safe at all times.

  • Product
Features:

  • 96 springs included for extra protection
  • 8-row stitching for extra safety
  • 6 powerful legs made from galvanized steel
  • Generous 450g padding foam with PVC cover
  • High weight capacity of 330 lbs

Conclusion

If safety and ease-of-assembly are top on your priority list, the Upper Bounce trampoline might be your knight in shining armor. However, all those add-ons come at an added cost.

PROS:
  • The easiest-to-assemble trampoline we’ve come across so far
  • Great and durable construction
  • Generous jumping space
  • Great comfort all thanks to generous foam padding
  • Polypropylene jumping mats which are highly durable
  • Rust-resistant legs and frame

CONS:
  • Quite expensive

Pro Tip

Most trampoline injuries occur when there are multiple bouncers, use the trampoline one person at a time.

SkyBound Stratos Trampoline

 SkyBound Stratos Trampoline with Full Enclosure

 This ASTM-certified SkyBound trampoline has built a name for itself as a reliable and powerful “toy.” Like all the other top reviewed options so far, it comes with strong, rust-protected legs meaning you can use it outdoors with no major worries. Likewise, its small size and average bounce power make it ideal as a small indoor trampoline for adults.

One thing that makes it truly unique is that it comes with a concave-shaped safety net. This odd-looking net is made this way to provide a low center of gravity. That way, even an accidental fall wouldn’t result in any major injuries.

Of course, that idea sounds good on paper – but how does the Stratos fare when put to the test?

Well, some users have complained that this trampoline offers a limited jumping space. Others have even complained that it’s a bit complicated to set up. On a positive note, we think SkyBound trampoline is quite safe and family-friendly. Its high-density UV body provides the much-needed protection for outdoor use.

What’s more?

It comes with a wide steel frame which is further reinforced with a fully coated set of legs.

One more thing, this trampoline comes with more than 84 springs. The springs are coated with yellow zinc which protects them from rusting and keeps them stable even in winter. As you know, there’s always a risk in using trampolines during winter as chances of springs cracking due to the cold tend to increase.

  • Product
Features:

  • 84 yellow zinc-coated springs for incredible bounce power
  • Black coated frames for extra protection
  • Unique patented set-up process that doesn’t involve bolts and screws
  • Padded enclosure poles for extra safety
  • A wide steel frame from improved stability

Conclusion

The SkyBound Stratos Trampoline comes with a number of high-end features. Its mat is particularly well-made, safe and durable. Besides that, we like the idea of including a concave-shaped safety net. On the flipside, though, we feel that this unit is a bit overpriced.

PROS:
  • Great safety features
  • Lightweight poles which are relatively easy to set up
  • Meets ASTM standards
  • Capable of handling up to 330 lbs of weight at once
  • Rust and corrosion-resistant finishing
  • Push pin design for a unique set up process

CONS:
  • Quite expensive
  • Requires at least two adults to set up

The ORCC 12/15 Feet Trampoline with Wind Stakes Rain Cover

ORCC 15FT 12FT Trampoline with Enclosure Net and Wind Stakes Rain Cover

Even though all trampolines claim to be perfectly suited for outdoor use, most may not put up with highly demanding conditions.

For instance, can you imagine what would happen if you left a trampoline with a weakly built basketball hoop outdoors on a windy day?

Chances are that you’d find the hoop broken into pieces. But the ORCC is in a class of its own. Not only does it come with a reliable enclosure net but a wind stakes rain cover to boot. Wait – there’s more. This unit comes with 108 springs. That’s almost twice as much as you’d get with other cheap indoor trampolines.

Why do you need all these springs in the first place? And do they necessarily offer a better experience?

It’s a fact that with no springs, there would be no trampolines. The more the springs, the better the bounce. Also, these additional springs provide you with extra safety because even if one spring was to accidentally snap, you’d still have 107 others to ensure you land safely.

To top it all up, the trampoline’s jumping mat is made from UV protected polypropylene. The mini-ladder is also made from galvanized steel. In other words, ORCC left nothing to chance in ensuring you end up with a generally safe and durable trampoline.

  • Product
Features:

  • 6 powerful U-shaped windstakes
  • Built using a heavy-duty steel frame
  • Reliable 7-inch galvanized springs for a superior bounce experience
  • Well-made pole-sleeve complete with 10mm foam padding for extra safety

Conclusion

This trampoline is strong and sturdy. We also think that it is well-designed and safe for your little ones. In fact, the inclusion of the spring tool and ground steaks makes the assembly process quite easy.

PROS:
  • Easy to assemble
  • Great safety features and add-ons
  • Can accommodate up to 330 pounds
  • Has a ladder and rain cover
  • Has a handy shoe holder at no additional cost

CONS:
  • The instructions seem to have been written by a non-native English speaker
  • The netting seems weak and delicate

Exacme TUV Approved Trampoline – All-in-One Combo Set

Exacme TUV Approved Trampoline with Safety Pad & Enclosure Net

 If all you want is something that’s safe and fun, the ExacMe TUV trampoline is all that and then some. Of course, it may not have all the bells and whistles typical of high-end units, but it packs just enough power for domestic use.

The manufacturer claims that this unit comes with a weight capacity of 375 pounds. That’s way above the average trampoline covered in these trampoline reviews so far. And for that reason, we’d recommend the ExacMe as the go-to “toy” for families. Indeed, this unit can accommodate two adults, two kids, and even a pet (remember, safety always comes first).

What’s more?

Its frame is made from rust-resistant galvanized steel. The complete set of 6 W-shaped legs is covered with a rust-resistant coating. On top of that, the W shape provides the unit with 12 contact points which reduce any chances of wobbling or even tipping.

Of course, all trampolines come with a safety net but this one comes with a rather unique one. First off, the net is secured with strong straps and ropes for extra safety. The netting also feels quite powerful and we think it would provide great reliability in the long-run.

Another rather unique feature of this German-made trampoline is that it has a ladder. This portable ladder fits snuggly below the base making it extremely easy for anyone including kids to be part of the fun as well.

  • Product
Features:

  • 7-inch powerful and durable springs for a superior bounce
  • Stainless steel frame made from a heavy-duty galvanized material
  • Intelligently designed w-shaped legs for great stability
  • TUV certified as safe according to German safety standards
  • High netting density polyethylene plastic netting

Conclusion

If you’re an ardent fan of German-technology, this trampoline has, probably, already won your heart. But not so fast! The zipper on the front flap is quite delicate and might easily disappoint you if you leave your kids to use it on their own. Other than that tiny issue, we think everything about this is nearly perfect.

PROS:
  • Reasonably priced and offers great value for money
  • Made from high-quality netting and mat materials
  • All its metallic parts are rust-resistant, therefore, capable of surviving in harsh conditions
  • Easy to assemble
  • Comes with a decently-sized ladder

CONS:
  • The zipper at the front flap is quite delicate and should be handled with care
  • No warranty on pad and mat

Merax 12 Feet Trampoline with Ladder and Basketball Hoop

Merax SW000011FAA 12' Round Trampoline Safety Enclosure

 Yes, you read that right. This is the second trampoline in this run-down so far that comes with a basketball hoop. Although it’s primarily designed for kids to play, you can still use it as a trampoline for adults as well due to the weight capacity. The only precaution you’d need to take is to ensure that only one adult uses it at a time.

The Merax comes with 6-W shaped legs which provide 12 contact points for added stability. Besides that, the poles which hold the netting in place are foam padded as a safety precaution in case of a miscalculated jump. That’s in addition to the provision of one extra thick side pole which supports UV-proof safety enclosure for added safety.

Looking for a user-friendly trampoline for kids?

This one fits the bill. In fact, it comes with a steel ladder which offers convenient maneuvering in and out of the structure. Beneath its jumping mat is a robust set of 72 galvanized springs which tightly hold everything in place. Of course, the bounce isn’t as powerful as what’s delivered by other more expensive models with extra springs.

As with its other sibling, the Merax 14 Feet, this one boasts a basketball hoop which adds onto the number of activities one can enjoy practicing on the trampoline. Of course, the hoop is a bit delicate and can only be used by hobbyists not professional athletes.

  • Product
Features:

  • 6 W-shaped legs for extra stability
  • Foam padded poles for maximum user safety
  • Handy ladder made from a galvanized steel ladder
  • Powered by 72 galvanized springs tucked below a tightly woven mat
  • Offers twice as much fun thanks to its basketball hoop
  • Generous weight capacity of 330 lbs

Conclusion

This is a perfect indoor and outdoor trampoline. It’s a great platform for a family of two or three to use. Its safety features are above-board and its basketball hoop can offer more hours of fun for everyone.

PROS:
  • Rust-proof design
  • UV-protected parts and surfaces
  • Intelligently, built-in basketball hoop
  • Ideal for indoor and outdoor entertainment
  • Relatively easy to assemble
  • Competitively priced

CONS:
  • The basketball hoop is quite delicate and may not survive harsh weather
  • Tiny trampolining space

How to Choose the Best Trampoline for Adults – Buyer’s Guide

Who doesn’t get a giddy thrill out of bouncing on a trampoline?

But with dozens of trampoline brands on the market, knowing which one delivers the ultimate experience and good value for money requires a bit of research.

So, if you’re a keen shopper looking to get the best bang for your bucks, here are some few factors to keep in mind.

  • Space Availability

It’s important to always confirm that you have adequate space available to accommodate your trampoline safely. Ideally, you should have at least 24 feet of overhead clearance. In fact, if possible, the only thing that should be above your trampoline is the sky.

Other than that, we’d recommend a minimum of 2 feet clearance from the nearest perimeter wall. This is to ensure that even if someone falls accidentally out of the net, they’d still land on safe ground.

  • The Surface

You’re better off putting your trampoline against the soil or grass as opposed to concrete and other surfaces. Soil and grass do a pretty good job of absorbing the impact that may be transmitted through the trampoline’s frame. In turn, this takes the stress off the critical structural components of your unit helping keep it going for longer.

One more thing, it’s important to make sure that the space below the trampoline is totally clear. You shouldn’t have concerns about getting injured when you spring up for some air.

  • Safety Pads

It’s obvious that every trampoline comes with springs which are responsible for causing the bouncing effect. The problem, however, is that these springs are pretty hard. They also have sharp edges which can easily harm you.

So, keeping all those facts in mind, you’re better off going for a trampoline with well-made and durable safety pads. A good pad is one made from a high density, properly stitched material. Of course, you’d expect the pad to come with a high-density foam for added protection as well.

  • Frame

The frame is the skeleton that holds your springboard together. It’s, therefore, important that this structure is well-made. It should basically be made from high-grade galvanized steel. Also, the frame should be designed in such a manner that it takes all the pressure without wobbling. Its base should be wide enough for a low center of gravity.

Besides that, it should have multiple legs to provide multiple contact points with the ground for additional stability.

  • Ladder

A ladder may seem like a minor thing in trampolining but it sure goes a long way in enhancing your convenience. Without it, getting on top of the jumping mat would be a bit of a hassle. So, a trampoline that comes with one would be a perfect find.

Types of Trampolines

Most people believe that all trampolines for adults are generally the same but that’s not the case. They come in different types with each built for specific purposes. Therefore, making the wrong choice for your business or home could be a very costly mistake. Read on to discover more about the various types available.

  • Outdoor Trampolines

Merax SW000009FAA 14' Round TrampolineThese are the most common types of trampolines commonly placed in the backyard because of their large size. When purchasing an outdoor trampoline, you will definitely need to consider its quality of construction and durability.

Generally, its frame should be made of galvanized steel that is rust-resistant since the trampoline is meant to be exposed to different climate conditions.

Some trampolines are also powder coated to ensure they can withstand the toughest outdoor conditions. In addition to that, outdoor trampolines should be made of UV and water resistant jumping mat for optimal durability during those hot summer days.

  • Mini Trampolines or Indoor Trampolines

Just like outdoor trampolines, most of them are constructed from galvanized steel tubes to provide you with years of indoor fun. On top of that, their steel tubes and springs are covered with thick foam padding for superior safety.

If you have limited space or live in an apartment, this small indoor trampoline for adults is an excellent choice. It has a comparatively smaller surface area compared to other types of trampoline for adults. As such, it can easily be hidden away under a bed or even in a closet.

Regardless of whether you intend to use your mini trampoline indoors or outdoors, it should have a strong frame, jumping pad and high-quality springs. However, the trampoline should, of course, be weatherproof if you need it for outdoor use.

  • Inflatable Trampolines

An inflatable trampoline for adults is one that works when the air is pumped into it. Unlike the other types of trampolines, these ones aren’t made of springs. Instead, they are crafted from thick inflatable tubes of plastic to provide you with great bounce while on the water.

Size & Shape

Trampolines come in various sizes and shapes to fit your needs. However, the right size and shape depend on the intended use of the trampoline.

  • Round Trampolines

These are the most common type on the market and are available in many sizes. Most brands offer them in sizes ranging from 12 feet to 18 feet in diameter. However, compared to other types, they don’t produce strong bounces because the springs are designed heading towards the center. Nonetheless, the larger sizes do provide a safer jumping experience.

  • Rectangular Trampolines

Rectangular trampolines are more associated with gymnasts because they provide one of the best bounce. As such, most of them feature an extra thick gauge steel frame for a sturdy bounce. When it comes to sizes, they range from 8 by 10 feet to 10 by 17 feet. The 8 by 10 feet ones are quite portable and easily fit in small areas. But if you are looking for the best bounce, we recommend getting an 8 by 12 feet trampoline.

  • Square Trampolines

Square trampolines are similar to their rectangular counterparts in many ways although generally cheaper. However, they are bigger than most other types of trampolines. For this reason, they are ideal for serious adult jumpers in need of a firmer and higher bounce. A 15 feet square trampoline is one of the best sizes you can get as it can accommodate multiple jumpers at the same time.

  • Oval Trampolines

These are a hybrid between the circular and rectangular trampolines. With a larger length than width, oval trampolines offer a spacious jumping area. The small width, on the other hand, allows it to fit conveniently in different types of spaces.

Like their counterparts, oval trampolines are available in many sizes to choose from including 8 feet by 14 feet and 10 feet by 7 feet for those with limited space. There are also larger sizes starting from 17 feet by 14 feet with different bounce areas.

  • Octagonal Trampolines

Octagonal trampolines are less popular but they are built to be safer than round shaped trampolines. In fact, if outfitted with the correct springs, they can outperform round trampolines by far with their superior bounce. Their unique design also allows for a more controlled bounce.

Sizes range from 8 feet to 14 feet depending on your needs. Of course, the larger the size the better, especially if you have adequate space in your backyard.

Materials

Adult trampolines feature four major components including jumping mat, tubing, frame pads and springs with each made of different materials. The jumping mat is usually made of materials like nylon or permatron polypropylene. However, permatron polypropylene is the best material because it is not only UV-resistant, durable and flexible but also mildew resistant.

The tubing which is used to make the legs and frame of the trampoline, on the other hand, is commonly constructed from galvanized steel. Besides being extremely sturdy and durable, the material is both corrosion and rust resistant. On top of that, the frame and spring pads are crafted from high-density UV-resistant foam to protect the user from injuries as a result of accidental falls.

As far as springs are concerned, nearly all trampolines for adults are made with metal. The springs also tend to be covered with a coat of zinc layer to ensure they are corrosion-resistant.

Common Trampoline for Adult Exercises

Apart from their entertainment value, trampolines are considered to be one of the most fun pieces of exercise equipment for adults. Whether you are looking to strengthen your core, tone your tummy or lose weight, there are so many exercises you can perform with a trampoline. Some forms of workouts you can do include the tuck jump, squats, jumping jog, basic bounce, and anti-gravity.

However, there are a number of factors to consider when buying a workout trampoline for adults with handlebar or without including size, shape, and weight capacity. When it comes to size, mini trampolines are perfect for people who exercise alone.

You should only settle for a medium or large sized trampoline in case there are people to accompany you during your workouts. The shape of the trampoline entirely depends on your preference while the weight capacity is dependent on the number of users using it at the same time.

Care and Maintenance

The minute you spring up from the jumping pad, your safety entirely depends on the stability of your trampoline’s frame. For that reason, it’s always a good idea to make sure your “toy” is always in good shape.

For instance, you want to make sure it is kept clean at all times. Dirt and debris can become catastrophic if left untouched. So keep your trampoline clean and, likewise, be sure to confirm that the springs are clean and clear at all times.

Besides cleanliness, proper placement of your jump on board can help keep it in great shape. Avoid keeping it under low-lying branches, leaking taps, the fireplace or any other unsafe places.

If you must use your trampoline in winter, don’t forget to winterize it. You can purchase a cover for it so it’s protected from harsh weather conditions. Also, consider removing the springs and mat when leaving the frame outdoors for too long (especially if indoor space is an issue). If you do that, make sure the springs are placed in a clean, dry, and secure place. Oil them before reattaching them on your jump on board.

Safety Tips

As we have already mentioned, your safety is of great importance whenever you’re using a trampoline. Use the following simple tips to ensure you’re absolutely safe at all times.

  • Always make sure the shock-absorbing safety pads, frame, hooks, and springs are in place before using a trampoline
  • Avoid somersaults and flips on the trampoline
  • Children should only use it under adult supervision

 

Warranty

Companies that provide a warranty for their products do so because they strongly believe in the kind of quality they deliver. Only companies that provide the highest quality of materials will provide you with more than 2 years of warranty.

So, watch out for low-cost manufacturers who offer 30 or 90-day warranties because their products may deteriorate easily.

FAQ

Is my trampoline weatherproof?

Most trampolines are meant for outdoor use and, therefore, are weatherproof. However, much as they are well-built, one still needs to take good care of them so they last longer. If you have room to take it indoors to protect it from extremely harsh weather conditions, that would go a long way in keeping it in tip-top form.

When can I buy replacement parts for my trampoline?

While it’s possible to find replacement parts locally, we recommend getting in touch with the company that supplied you with the product for replacement parts. Who knows? Some of these parts might be on their warranty list and that would protect you from having to spend more bucks.

What should I wear to the trampoline?

There are no strict rules on what to wear. Generally, you need to wear comfortable t-shirts, sweats, and shorts. Avoid wearing a belt, shoes or jewelry on the trampolines. If you must wear socks, we’d only recommend altitude socks.

Which is the best trampoline for me?

The best way to decide which trampoline is best for you is by checking its specs. For instance, you want to make sure the trampoline’s weight limit is reasonable for an adult. Ideally, the weight limit should be upward of 200 pounds. About size, it’s important to always keep in mind that typically 14-foot trampoline has 44% more jumping area than a typical 12-foot model.

Which is the safest trampoline?

The safest trampoline is one that’s built up to the highest set standards. Ideally, it should have equidistant sides, thereby creating enough room for any person skipping at the center to enjoy without worrying about getting knocked by the sides.

That said, it’s important to work with renowned brands. Most of these brands have been in the market for a long time and are, therefore, likely to build trampolines as per the required standards. We, also, would caution you against buying extremely cheap trampolines. Just find something that’s moderately-priced and, preferably one from a renowned brand.
