Skywalker is the overall best trampoline brand. Founded in 2004, this company is known for producing high quality, safe trampolines. The brand also offers a variety of trampoline accessories.
What makes Skywalker trampolines unique is the buttonhole system that connects the mat and safety net. This system eliminates dangerous gaps in the trampoline that users could fall through while jumping. In addition, the safety nets that enclose the trampolines are sturdy and are nearly impossible for children to climb because of the closely knit netting. To ensure utmost safety, the trampolines are also lined with protective padding to prevent injury from falling.
Zupapa is another popular and reputable trampoline brand from Germany. The company's trampolines are all certified by TUV Nord, a distinguished European certification agency for sporting equipment and various appliances. Therefore, their trampolines are known to be of the utmost quality. Made up of galvanized steel, the trampolines can go many seasons without rusting. The springs are also made up of the powerful steel and there are more of them on average, than on most other trampolines of comparable size. Additionally, the trampolines are strong and stable, with wide legs and a durable safety net surrounding the mat.
As described in the brand name, Springfree trampolines provide a jumping experience like many other traditional trampolines without containing any springs. The brand released its first innovative model in New Zealand in 2003.
Since heavy metal springs can cause injury while jumping, the design of Springfree trampolines make them among the safest on the market. Instead of metal springs, these trampolines contain rods made up of a flexible compound. Furthermore, the rods are located beneath the trampoline so that users do not risk colliding with them. In addition to the rods, the safety net is also quite flexible allowing it to bend with users upon collision.
Vuly is another high quality trampoline brand known for its springless design. However, instead of flexible rods, Vuly trampolines contain what they refer to as "Leaf Springs." These are curved springs made out of a flexible material blend that extend out to the side of the trampoline and help users to bounce higher.
Another key feature of Vuly trampolines are their safety nets. The nets are UV resistant and made of polyethylene, making them very durable. In addition, the netting is tightly knit, preventing tearing and users from getting their fingers and toes caught in the mesh.
Bounce Pro is one of the most popular American trampoline brands. While they do not provide a springless design like Springfree and Vuly, Bounce Pro produces traditional trampolines that are more affordable. The trampolines are equipped with curved poles, which help to prevent users from colliding with them when they fall against the safety net enclosure. They also are equipped with a padded layer that covers the metal springs to help prevent contact and injuries.
Besides its classic offerings, Bounce Pro also has multiple junior trampoline models along with a double trampoline design that allows two users to each have their own jumping surface.
