Trampolines mean two different things to kids and adults. For kids, trampolines are toys that let them bounce high and allow them to feel as if they were flying. Adults typically see trampolines as concussions and broken bones waiting to happen. (Our parents could not have been the only ones who took this hardline stance, right?)
This conflict highlights what makes the AlleyOop VariableBounce Trampoline such a great purchase—it offers the fun kids want and the safety and durability a parent needs to ease their paranoia.
This alleyoop trampoline has a diameter of 14 ft with a user weight capacity of 245 lbs. The frame is made of pre-galvanized steel that measures almost 2 inches in diameter, and it comes with a lifetime warranty.
The AlleyOop VariableBounce Trampoline is a product from JumpSport, a company founded in 1997 and known for its emphasis on safety. In fact, the CEO of JumpSport is the man who first designed the trampoline safety net that has become so popular.
VariableBounce is a system designed to make bouncing safer and to lessen the impact and stress placed on the body by jumping and landing. When a jumper lands, only a portion of the springs engage immediately—the rest engage a split-second later. This allows individual to absorb impact more slowly and gradually and provides for a better return bounce. In other words, VariableBounce makes the jumping experience both safer and more fun.
This Trampoline is Incredibly Safe — You can tell as soon as you start to take the pieces out of the box to assemble it that this trampoline is built to last. The net itself is extremely sturdy with a high weight tolerance shock absorption, making it one of the safest trampolines in the market.
Easy to Assemble — For an object of its size, the AlleyOop VariableBounce Trampoline is surprisingly easy to put together. The instructions in the manual are easy to follow and the pieces are well-made and fit together with no forcing or struggling. The trampoline assembly can take up to 3 hours including the safety enclosure, but don’t let this discourage you. The final product is worth it!
Better Jumping Experience — The VariableBounce makes a difference—the jumping experience on the AlleyOop Variable Bounce Trampoline is much smoother and is easier on the jumper’s body compared to other trampolines without the VariableBounce technology.
It is a Great Value — The upfront cost is a little higher than other trampolines, but it is extremely durable and will outlive cheaper models by many years. Not only will it survive, it will age well. This will not be a rusty wreck in your yard in six months—it will be good-as-new for years. The AlleyOop trampoline has 96 powerful frame pad-covered springs that provide the best jumping experience for years.
Excellent Customer Service — JumpSport (the company behind the AlleyOop VariableBounce Trampoline) has some of the best customer service that we have ever experienced. The wait time is non-existent to minimal and it is based in the United States.
Elegant Looking — This trampoline blends in well with the yard, as it is forest-green.
It’s Expensive — The AlleyOop VariableBounce Trampoline is a little more expensive than other models, putting it out of some peoples’ price ranges. However, individuals in such a position may find it better to wait and save up enough for this model because it is such a good value. The AlleyOop uses quality materials making it a trampoline that will last for years.
No Ladder — It does not come with a ladder. This is not rare with trampoline purchases, but for the price, it would be nice if a ladder was included.
No Anchor System — It does not come with an anchor system, which is imperative if you do not want your trampoline to flying down the street or into a car during a bad storm or excessively windy day. JumpSport does sell an anchor system, it just has to be bought separately, like the ladder.
