Springfree Trampoline has been designing world-class trampolines for over 20 years. Since we set out to build the safest trampoline that kids and parents could enjoy, we’ve had the good fortune to sell our trampolines in over 23 countries and learning everything there is to know about the art of the bounce… we are officially trampoline experts!

We’ve also come across a lot of trampoline myths—things that people believe about trampolines that either aren’t true, or that don’t apply to Springfree Trampoline’s revolutionary safe and springless design. So sit back, grab a cuppa and let us put you on the right track where trampolines are concerned. 

We want to share the 8 most common myths about trampolines and how Springfree Trampoline definitely bucks the trend and makes a difference. 


Myth: Trampolines fall apart easily.

At Springfree Trampoline, we know that safety and quality go together. Every component in a Springfree Trampoline has been rigorously tested and made with the highest quality materials so you get the same enjoyment, year after year. In fact we’re so confident in our trampoline we offer a 10 year warranty on the ENTIRE trampoline… How good is that???



Myth: Trampolines = falling injuries.

Trampoline safety is about knowing which trampolines are safe to use, and how to use them. The great news is that now a day’s most modern trampolines are safety-focused—especially Springfree Trampolines, which are constructed with a flexible safety enclosure designed to cushion the smallest right through to the biggest of jumpers and prevent falling to the ground.



Myth: Trampolines are just for kids.

Definitely NOT, No Way…While kids do LOVE trampolines—seriously, they can’t enough—we also know loads of parents who are totally loving  adding a little bounce to their lives. In fact, because trampoline jumping is a cushioned, low-impact sport, it’s an excellent way for adults to get a workout in without stressing their joints. Head over to another blog with our favourite trampoline workouts… brilliant whatever age you are.



Myth: Trampolines are too dangerous to bounce on.

Little-known fact: not all trampolines use metal coiled springs to maintain their bounciness. Springfree Trampoline has a revolutionary safe and springless design that instead uses flexible composite rods that lie beneath the trampoline jumping surface, out of harm’s way. This eliminates 90% of product-related trampoline injuries, does that put your mind at rest???



Myth: You can only use trampolines in summer.

Don’t be silly…you can certainly bounce on a Springfree trampoline all year! Our trampolines are designed with a UV-stabilized mat and net rods, and a galvanized and powder-coated steel frame, making them but safe and fun to use all year-round, even in the harshest conditions. Bouncing is a great way to warm up in winter with a brisk, early-morning bounce. Or enjoy watching the leaves fall from new heights with a bounce in the autumn. Countless Springfree Trampoline enthusiasts have already enjoyed all-seasons jumping…no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing and the right trampoline!



Myth: The kids will use the trampoline once and then get bored of it.

Kids love finding new and fun ways to use their trampolines. Just like any toy, trampolines are most fun when you find new and creative uses for them, and be assured there are lots and lots of things to do on a trampoline than just bouncing. Try using your Springfree Trampoline for bouncing contests, dance routines, high-flying photo shoots, camp-outs and ghost stories to name a few ideas. Read our blog on 50 ways to use your Springfree Trampolines, its full of great activity ideas for getting the most out of your trampoline.



Myth: Trampolines aren’t safety tested.

Trampolines are safety tested, and at Springfree Trampoline we set a higher standard for children’s safety. In fact, when our trampoline was tested amongst 8 different trampoline brands by consumer watch-dog CHOICE, Springfree Trampoline was proven to be the only brand to pass every single safety test.



Myth: Trampolines will wear out and lose their bounce.

So, this is true of low-quality trampolines that aren’t properly maintained can lose their elasticity. Fortunately, the net and mat rods of the Springfree Trampoline are made from an advanced composite material that's three times stronger than steel and can withstand millions of jump cycles. This means your trampoline will keep the bouncing fun going, day in, day out! #KeepBritainBouncing
