Television, cell phones, virtual reality (it’s on the way!) all play a part in keeping our kids indoors and inactive.
What if there was a piece of equipment that’s fun, gets your kids outside, improves their fitness, and gives you a much-needed break from them that doesn’t involve technology?
Well, a good SkyBound trampoline is all that and more.
Motor skills and function
Fun activity for hours (exercise is the not so fun term)
In your own backyard
Long lasting product line
In fact, a trampoline is a long-term investment in your kid’s fitness that also happens to make exercise fun, which is why they’re such a popular choice for parents who find it difficult to get their kids moving.
If your budget allows it, it’s definitely worth investing in a slightly more expensive trampoline as you really do get your money’s worth in terms of build quality and the latest in safety features.
SkyBound Trampolines Has Multiple Models
Skybound offers high-quality trampolines considered to be incredibly sturdy and bouncy.
Skybound’s trampolines are considered to be relatively safe. First of all, many of them have an enclosure net sewn into the jumping mat – a sure sign the manufacturer thought about escaping children, limbs, and digits. Second, except for the Super 7ft Kids trampoline (and possibly the Orion – it doesn’t say), all of Skybound’s trampolines use rust-resistant materials. Plus, the trampolines meant to be outside are made with UV-resistant materials, to avoid the fabric weakening in the sun.
Is there a weight limit to these Trampolines?
Skybound’s Stratos trampoline has a weight limit of 330 lbs., and the Cirrus has a weight limit of 220 lbs. The Atmos, built smaller, but still a large trampoline, has a weight limit of 175 lbs. The smaller children’s trampolines have similar weight limits: The Mini 4 Children has a weight limit of 100 lbs., and the Super 7ft Kids trampoline’s weight limit is 105 lbs.
Take the springs on the SkyBound Stratos, for example, which have a distinctive bright gold color.
This striking color is caused by the steel being dipped in ionized zinc which resists rusting and corrosion, meaning that you’ll get extra life from your trampoline. These springs are durable, but still offer more bounce than cheaper standard steel springs.
The springs are robust, but you don’t have to worry about getting hands and feet caught in the gaps as not only are they covered with thick padding, but they’re also separated from the jumping mat by a concave shaped high density enclosure net.
Some of the most durable safety nets consist of Polyethylene (PE). Polyethylene is inert, which means it is naturally resistant to dust, moisture, and organic material (bugs, germs, fungus and all that other stuff). What does this mean? Your net will last longer before it breaks down or needs a good cleaning. With a quality PE safety net, it won't need cleaning at all.
All nets are coated with a UV-protectant spray - something like sunblock for your net. This is important if your trampoline sits out in your backyard all year around. PE nets wear that coating a little better, so the natural breakdown that occurs in safety nets won't happen as quickly in a PE net.
Polypropylene (PP) and Polyester are more rigid than Polyethylene, which isn't a good thing for a safety net. You want your net to have a little give and elasticity to move with your children as they jump around and have fun. Resilience is good, and you want to choose a material that will return to its original shape. Rigid materials like Polypropylene and polyester are more prone to tearing and ripping, and one small tear in any part of your net means you'll want to replace it as soon as possible.
Lighting Fast Assembly
When it comes to trampolines, we know it’s more than just reaching new heights. It’s also about safety, durability, assembly and so much more:
LIGHTNING-QUICK ASSEMBLY: With the SkyBound Cirrus, you can assemble your trampoline with ease. We’ve taken brackets, screws, braces, pole caps and bolts out of the equation and replaced them with push-pin bolt technology and machine welding. Setup now takes half the time of standard trampolines — which means more time for you to “test out” the trampoline for your kids.
SUPERIOR SAFETY: Who says you can’t have a good time without a little risk? Not us! The SkyBound Cirrus meets U.S. ASTM Safety Standards and features a high-density enclosure net for additional support and maximum safety. A thick, two-piece safety pad, which has an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal coating, is also included to cover your trampoline’s springs.
ALL-WEATHER RESISTANT: Make the stress-free fun of our 14-foot round trampolines with enclosures last even longer with their weather-resistant foam, which has a lifespan that’s three to five times longer than regular foam. Our foam, for your trampoline’s safety pad and enclosure poles, uses our exclusive blend of vinyl PVC material and pole foam.
ULTIMATE REBOUND: We all want that sky-high bounce, and the SkyBound Cirrus helps you get there with its set of 72 premium trampoline springs, measuring seven inches. If you need more air, we recommend jumping up to the SkyBound Stratos or the SkyBound Orion.
PATENTED SAFETY NET: Forget the hardware tools with our patented safety net, which uses Velcro straps and PVC top-sleeves instead of bolts, nuts and washers.
