Review of Skywalker 15 Foot Trampoline
Skywalker 15 Foot Trampoline Review – At Skywalker Trampolines, safety is the #1 priority.
The Skywalker Trampolines 15-feet jump n’ dunk trampoline with safety enclosure and basketball hoop comes with a patented enclosure. Ever so important of course (not so much the patented part as opposed to the enclosure) as the enclosure eliminates any gap between the exterior netting and the jumping surface. This provides jumping-fun protection for children and adults alike.
(Incidentally, this post contains links to products. Please make the assumption that at least some of the links may result in earning commissions. Thank you.)
All the products that Skywalker Trampolines sell are tested to ensure safety as well as durability. They all meet or exceed ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) standards.
The Skywalker 15 foot trampoline with basketball hoop has a specified user weight limit of 200 lbs. The ASTM protocol means that the trampoline has been safely tested to four times this user weight (800 lbs).
The slam-dunk basketball hoop is made from soft, safe play materials. There’s a hook & loop breakaway rim. This, the breakaway rim, helps in minimizing potential damage to the enclosure poles and net. You also get one foam basketball. You can remove the hoop if you wish. The hoop is located around 5 feet above the jumping surface.
To be honest, the hoop and the basketball are not really up to much. Neither is built to last for long.
Fortunately, the same CANNOT be said for the trampoline. The Skywalker Trampoline is a high-quality bit of kit that will last for a good while to come!
The round jumping mat, which offers a 141 square-foot jumping surface, is made from highly durable polypropylene.
Around the jumping enclosure’s exterior, you’ll find 96 springs made from 16-gauge steel, all 6.5 inches in length. The springs are weather- and rust-resistant. There’s an extra-thick vinyl-coated spring pad over the top of the springs. The pad is fade resistant.
The pad is available in five different colors: blue, green, red, purple, and camo.
The enclosure system features a series of padded weather-resistant galvanized-steel poles (poles are padded with foam) to provide stability. The enclosure net (which is over 6 feet in height from jumping mat to top of enclosure netting) is made from polyethylene and has a dual zipper with a latch clip at the entry point.
The total trampoline dimensions are 108.3 x 180 x 180 inches. The total weight of the trampoline is 190 lbs.
As mentioned above, the Skywalker Trampoline is available in five different colors: blue, purple, camo, green, and red. Note that the safety enclosure netting and the jumping mat come as a standard black. The exterior spring protection cover comes in the variable colors given.
Skywalker Trampolines’ 15-feet jump n’ dunk trampoline with safety enclosure and basketball hoop comes with a 3-year limited warranty on the trampoline frame. For all other materials, there’s a 1-year limited warranty.
Do note that the Skywalker Trampoline ships in two separate boxes. Shipping weight is 206 lbs.
