General Features – Safe and Comfortable Jumping on a Heavy-Duty AlleyOop Trampoline
This AlleyOop Trampoline offers a round jumping surface 14 foot trampoline, almost a quarter more than much larger, 9’ x 16’ rectangular-shaped trampolines. The frame has been designed for heavy duty usage: made from galvanized steel rods of 2mm thick walls and 1.9’ in diameter, it can withstand the wildest jumping and rolling without bending or shaking.
The jumping mat of the exercise trampoline stands 35 inches tall, allowing for safe jumping as high as you can. The Alley Oop trampoline can be used by both adults and children – the combination of the special materials allows the unit to resist adult jumpers as well, up to the weight of 245 pounds.
Special Features that Make this AlleyOop 14 foot trampoline Safe, Sturdy and So Enjoyable
This AlleyOop Trampoline is packed with features that have the role of enhancing trampoline safety and usability:
- The patented technology used by the VariableBounce Trampoline optimizes not only performance, but shock absorption as well. The AlleyOop 14 foot trampoline is equipped with special springs that engage whenever a bounce happens.
- What’s special about these springs is that they go off asynchronously, one part of them engaging in the moment the jump happens, the other part a bit later. This sort of delayed functioning makes it possible for the jumper’s body to absorb the shock of landing more gradually, and the energy is distributed more slowly in the body – a very important invention that prevents injuries in the case of awkward landings.
- The 14ft trampoline springs are made of special, zinc-plated material to resist rust and corrosion.
- The long springs are made of high-tensile strength steel for maximum performance.
- Deceleration while landing protects the jumper’s neck, knees and backs against injuries.
- The special AlleyOop springs enhance not only the safety of the landing, but the quality of the jumping as well. With this 14ft trampoline with enclosure, your kid will jump higher and land safer than with many other similar toys.
- The extra-large jump mat is made of special, high-tensile strength material that features as many as 10 rows of stitches, efficient UV shielding and water-resistant properties for enhanced durability.
- The mat is connected to the springs and the frame with V-rings made of steel and looped straps and not with grommets. As the fabric is not punctured, the entire unit becomes more durable and more resistant.
- This 14 ft. trampoline features a special safety enclosure as well. The system called Triple-Fail-Safe backup is also patented and it offers the highest possible level of safety to children and adult jumpers as well by preventing unlucky falls and preventing the trampoline net from collapsing.
- The frame is kept securely in place with another extraordinary design element: the DD System. The system uses no slip-fit pieces, making the frame much firmer and much more secure.
- The entire frame of this is padded with high-density polyethylene material.
- The dark green coating on this AlleyOop trampoline not only blends in beautifully with your garden or yard landscape, but it is also of high quality, protecting the 14ft trampoline and the jumper’s clothes as well.
- This 14 ft trampoline comes with a 2-year warranty for the mat and lifetime warranty for the frame.
Are There Any Disadvantages?
This feature-rich trampoline with enclosure will surely become the favorite of children and adult users alike. However, there is one aspect that we must mention: the 14 foot trampoline with enclosure is somewhat on the higher end of the price range, but if you consider the high-quality materials and the advanced technologies used for making this Alley Oop trampoline and for giving the users the highest level of security, the price no longer seems that high.
My Experience with the AlleyOop 14 foot Trampoline with Enclosure
I have not only seen this AlleyOop trampoline with net being used by others, but I have tried it myself – the kids jumping on it loved it so much that I couldn’t resist. This exercise trampoline really provides a great experience: I felt completely safe while jumping and I enjoyed every bounce, just like the kids.
As for the safety features on the trampoline, I can say only the best. The safety net wraps around the mat completely, so there is no chance it comes apart and lets the jumper fall out. It is not only the net that offers the jumper all the protection needed. The mat is very comfortable and durable, too. Some friends of mine have had the 14′ VariableBounce for years and the units still look like new, even though exposed to heavy-duty usage indeed.
My friends choose to assemble the 14 foot trampoline in its final place and leave it there all year long. A good decision, not only because it is quite large and heavy, which makes moving a bit awkward, but also because the outdoor trampoline can withstand the vicissitudes of the weather, holding up against the rain, the snow and strong sunshine as well. I have seen these Alley Oop trampolines that have been out there for years – without a scratch or any other signs of deterioration.
The Final Verdict
I can only recommend this AlleyOop trampoline to anyone who would like to entertain their kids with an outdoor toy – and would like to take a jump or two occasionally themselves. Though the unit is a bit high-priced, given the stability, the durability and the safety measures incorporated, it makes a very good investment not only into entertainment, but health as well.
With the AlleyOop 14′ VariableBounce Trampoline with integrated Safety Enclosure, your yard will surely become the entertainment center of the neighborhood, do trampoline exercises and knowing that all the jumping is entirely safe, too, is invaluable.Be Sociable, Share!
