Top 5 Best Trampoline Brands (2024) | Expert Analysis

Many brands sell trampolines, and if you’ve landed here, you’re probably wondering: “Which one is the best?” 

You may not think the brand matters when buying a trampoline—in fact, an analysis we conducted last year revealed that 40% of potential trampoline buyers couldn’t name a single trampoline brand! 

Buying the wrong brand, though, is one of the big mistakes you can make—especially if you’re looking to buy the best trampoline for kids. Over 100,000 trampoline injuries occur each year, making it imperative to purchase a trampoline that is both safe and fun. 

As a trampoline brand ourselves, and the pioneer behind the springless trampoline, we’re as knowledgeable as anybody about the trampoline industry, including all the major brands out there. 

Today, we’re going to use our insider expertise to rank the five top trampoline brands based on five popular categories: 

  • Best Value 

  • Best Mid-Budget Choice  

  • Best Bounce 

  • Best Variety 

  • Best Premium  

How We Chose the Best Trampoline Brands 

Before diving into the list, we want to clarify our methodology.

Our experts, with over 20 years in the industry, thoroughly evaluated each mainstream trampoline brand to find the best ones.

In full transparency, we must note our inclusion of Springfree Trampoline in the "Premium" category, with strong evidence to back it up.

These five brands in this article stood out within their respective categories, but this doesn't discredit other brands. Our list is category-based, from "Best Value" to "Best Premium."

5 Best Trampoline Brands This Year 

Below you will find out the winner for each category, along with their brand’s history, what they sell, brand strengths, weaknesses and a summary of why they were chosen. 

1. Best Value: Jumpzylla

Brand History: Jumpzylla is a new trampoline brand, established in 2020, but has quickly gained traction for its uniquely designed and reasonably affordable trampolines. 

What Do They Sell? 

  • Jumpzylla Model S Trampolines (10 ft, 12 ft, 14 ft) ($259.95-$429.95) 

  • Jumpzylla 8 ft Trampoline ($209.99) 

  • Jumpzylla 10 ft Trampoline ($289.95) 

  • Jumpzylla 12 ft Trampoline ($339.95) 

  • Jumpzylla 14 ft Trampoline ($469.95)  

  • 1-Year Extended Warranty ($69.99)

Brand Strengths:  

  • Relatively affordable. 

  • Unique design. 

  • Their trampolines are generally easy to install and move around.  

  • Have notably high single jumper trampoline weight limits (330-450 pounds).  

  • Comes included with features that protect against rust, like a galvanized steel frame and powder-coated legs.   

  • You can customize the color of the spring padding on most of their trampolines.  

Brand Weaknesses: 

  • Not a huge variety of Trampolines to choose from. 

  • Trampolines have a one-year warranty, which hints that they are made from inexpensive materials. This could result in a shorter product lifespan or the need to buy replacement parts after a year.   

  • Don’t sell any trampoline accessories.   

Verdict:  

Jumpzylla’s trampolines have some decent features, like high weight limits and flexibility, and their products are relatively affordable.

They don’t have a large variety to choose from, though, and they’re not necessarily trampolines that are built to last.

2. Best Mid-Budget Choice: Jumpflex

Brand History: Launched in 2009, Jumpflex started as a small company but has grown into one of the notable brands in the trampoline industry.  

What Do They Sell? 

  • Flex 12 ft Trampoline ($599)
  • Hero 12 ft Trampoline ($799)
  • Hero 14 ft Trampoline ($849)
  • Hero 15 ft Trampoline ($899)
  • 7 Trampoline Accessories ($29-$159)  
  • Lifetime Warranty ($59) 

Jumpflex Trampoline 

Brand Strengths:  

  • Unique and fashionable design.  

  • Trampolines are made from good-quality material.

  • Include solid durability features—including a 42 mm steel frame and metal components that undergo a six-layer rust-proofing process. 

  • Offers a 10-year warranty for their frame on manufactured defects (can purchase a lifetime warranty for $59).

  • Any trampoline purchase comes with a ladder.  

Brand Weaknesses: 

  • Very little variety—they only sell four core trampolines. They have started to sell Limited Edition Trampolines, however. 

  • Trampoline safety concerns: Although their trampolines’ poles are curved, they are still static and could cause injury to wayward jumpers. Gaps between the mat and the net are possible, exposing the metal springs and a potential falling area.  

  • You must purchase the lifetime warranty and the standard warranty only covers manufacturer defects for the frame. The rest of the components are covered for 1-5 years.   

  • Low recommended single jumper weight limits on their trampolines (198 pounds.) 

Verdict:  

Jumpflex is a decent, mid-budget, choice for a trampoline brand. Their trampolines look sleek and their trampoline frames are made of good-quality materials. 

They do not have a large variety to choose from, though, and there are safer trampolines that can hold more weight out there.

3. Best Bounce: Acon

Brand History: Acon was established in 1996 with roots in Finland and they introduced their first trampoline-branded model, the Acon Air, in 2003. Acon is now one of the prominent trampoline brands and they also sell gymnastics and ice hockey equipment.  

What Do They Sell? 

  • 7 Rectangle Trampolines ($1,299-$3,900) 

  • 14 Round Trampolines ($339-$1,249) 

  • 8 Rebounders ($279-$299)  

  • 25 Trampoline Accessories ($6.90-$590)

Brand Strengths:  

  • Good variety of trampolines to choose from. 

  • Unique design. 

  • Acon’s X-Series Springs provide a solid bounce—and you can upgrade it by choosing their “Performance” Option—which uses Piano Wire Springs.  

  • 10-year warranty on the trampoline frame.  

  • Ladder comes standard with trampoline purchase.  

Brand Weaknesses: 

  • Their outdoor trampolines can be too pricey for some.  

  • Some of their trampolines have springs located inside the mat—which can cause pinching injuries if the padding starts to wear down. 

  • Their metal static poles also create a risk for a trampoline injury if enough force is applied to the enclosure net.  

Verdict:  

Acon has a top-of-the-line, spring-based, bounce and has several different trampolines you can choose from.

Some of their trampolines do have major safety concerns — mainly the ones with the springs inside the mat.

4. Best Variety: Skywalker Trampolines

Brand History: Skywalker Trampolines was founded around 2005 and have grown from a local company in Utah to a brand that is now across almost 30 retailers worldwide.   

What Do They Sell? 

  • 30 Round Trampolines ($64-$819) 

  • 4 Rectangle Trampolines ($579-$1,599) 

  • 7 Square Trampolines ($479-$2,999)  

  • 9 Oval Trampolines ($349-$529) 

  • 18 Mini Trampolines ($64-109) 

  • 26 Trampoline Games and Accessories ($8-$119) 

Skywalker trampoline

Brand Strengths:  

  • Relatively affordable, especially its larger trampolines. 

  • Huge catalog of backyard trampolines to choose from.  

  • All products come with their patented no-gap enclosure—which helps eliminate gaps between the net and mat. 

  • UV-protected enclosure net and jumping mat. Steel frames are galvanized.

  • Plenty of games and accessories to choose from. 

Brand Weaknesses: 

  • Besides their Epic and Premium Trampolines, the inexpensive price means they are made from mostly inexpensive materials: Don’t expect their cheap trampolines to last more than three years without needing maintenance.

  • Numerous safety hazards on most of their trampolines, including metal static poles and a fragile net.  

  • Low and limited warranty on many of their trampolines (1-3 years for all materials).

  • The design of their trampolines are not the most visually appealing.   

Verdict:  

Overall, Skywalker Trampolines is a brand that is a good fit for families looking to choose from a variety of budget trampolines.

But they do come up short on numerous safety/durability features. They are a solid value brand but could use major improvement on safety, quality and design.

5. Best Premium: Springfree Trampoline 

Springfree Trampoline logo.

Brand History: Springfree Trampoline originated in the early 2000s and was the first springless trampoline introduced to the market. Today, Springfree Trampoline is still the only brand that exclusively sells trampolines with no springs.  

What Do They Sell? 

  • 3 Round Trampolines ($799-$1,499)  

  • 4 Oval Trampolines ($999-$3,999) 

  • 2 Square Trampolines ($1,999-$2,499) 

  • 14 Trampoline Accessories ($29-$199) 

Springfree Medium Round Trampoline

Brand Strengths:  

  • Only brand to exclusively sell springless trampolines. 

  • Trampolines are considered the safest trampoline due to features like their springless design, flexible net, mat with no hard edges, hidden frame and use of flexible enclosure rods instead of static metal poles (only trampoline to eliminate 90% of product-related injuries.)  

  • Made from quality materials such as galvanized steel base with three layers of rust protection, patented composite fiberglass rods for the jumping system and flexible net rods.  

  • 10-year warranty is included for all parts that cover manufacturer defects in material and workmanship.     

  • Only brand to offer advanced trampoline customization, where you can choose from seven different colors. 

  • Visually pleasing design that adds to a backyard’s aesthetic.    

Brand Weaknesses: 

  • Springfree Trampolines are premium-priced and may be out-of-budget for some. 

  • Can be difficult to assemble by yourself (professional trampoline installation is offered for $399.)

Verdict:  

From a quality and safety perspective, Springfree Trampolines have proven to be the best outdoor trampoline you can purchase.

Since they are premium trampolines though, the price can be too high for some, and installation can be difficult to accomplish on your own.
