20 Common Springfree Trampoline Questions (Honestly Answered)
Let’s now get to your questions! Feel free to skim through them to find your particular question:
What Is Springfree Trampoline?
Springfree Trampoline is a brand that creates and manufactures springless trampolines, which differ from the traditional, spring-based trampoline. To date, we are the only premier brand to exclusively sell springless trampolines.
How Do Springfree Trampolines Work?
Springfree Trampolines work by creating a design using fiberglass rods instead of springs and crafting the product in such a way that allows the hard metal frame to be positioned away from the jumping surface. Flexible net rods replaced hard net rods and a flexible net replaced a rigid net.
You can find more about how Springfree Trampolines work by reading our whitepaper, “The Science of Springfree.”
Are Springfree Trampolines Safer?
Comparatively speaking, Springfree Trampolines are safer than traditional, spring-based trampolines, with features like a springless design, FlexiNet, SoftEdge Mat and a hidden frame.
These safety features contribute to Springfree being the only type of trampoline to eliminate 90% of product-related injuries.
Are Springfree Trampolines Bouncy?
Yes, the bounce of a Springfree Trampoline is comparable to a spring-based bounce. However, the Springfree bounce is different in that it provides a smoother, less jarring bounce.
We won’t bore you with the science too much, but basically, when you jump on a Springfree Trampoline, it pumps less air and instead gives that energy back to the jumper. This makes it easier on your joints while still letting you get plenty of air while jumping!
How Much Does a Springfree Trampoline Cost?
The cost of a Springfree Trampoline will range from $799-$3,999, depending on which size of trampoline you choose.
Why Are Springfree Trampolines So Expensive?
A natural follow-up to the previous question: “Why are your trampolines so expensive?”
Simply put, Springfree Trampolines are premium trampolines, built with the highest quality that ensures the safety of your jumpers while adding to the aesthetic of your backyard.
When you buy a Springfree Trampoline, you can expect it to last in your backyard for 10+ years and if you’re a parent or guardian of children, you get the peace of mind of knowing that your kids are safe and protected while jumping.
The high-quality design and industry-leading safety features are primarily why they are priced at a premium. There are financing options for those that want a Springfree but don’t want to pay for it all upfront.
Do Springfree Trampolines Go on Sale?
Periodically, Springfree Trampoline will offer a promotional discount, particularly during the beginning of the warm weather season or around the holidays.
The best way to stay informed on our sales is to sign up for our Springfree Newsletter—where we send updates about promotions, discounts, new releases, etc.
How Much Weight Can a Springfree Trampoline Hold?
Springfree Trampolines can hold up to 1,500 pounds at a static weight. However, the single jumper weight capacity of a Springfree Trampoline will be either 175 pounds or 220 pounds depending on the size of model that you’re looking at.
You can technically jump on the trampoline if you weigh more than the single jumper weight capacity, but risk bottoming out (falling to the ground) if you reach maximum height on the trampoline.
Check out “The Truth About Trampoline Weight Limits | Everything You Need to Know” to learn more about the weight that a trampoline can hold.
How Heavy Is a Springfree Trampoline?

- Small Trampolines - Around 120-168 pounds
- Medium-Large Trampolines - Around 22o-260 pounds
- Jumbo Trampolines - Around 260-350 pounds
How Long Does a Springfree Trampoline Last?

The size of trampoline you should buy will depend on many factors, including the size of your yard and who will be jumping on the trampoline.
How Long Does It Take to Assemble a Springfree Trampoline?
Because Springfree Trampolines are more complex than traditional trampolines, they may take longer to install and some people may prefer professional installation ($399).
If you assemble a Springfree Trampoline manually, though, it will normally take 2-3 hours to install. Use the BILT App if assembling manually (two people are recommended for assembly)—it’s free and provides detailed, 3D, instructions for each step in the installation process!
Can You Put a Springfree Trampoline in the Ground?
Most Springfree Trampolines are installed above the ground, but we’ve seen a very small portion of customers put the legs of the trampoline into the ground.
While you technically can put a Springfree in the ground, we recommend installing a Springfree above the ground, as that’s how it was meant to be installed. It’s also much easier to move when it is installed above the ground.
How Do You Disassemble a Springfree Trampoline?
It would take too long to explain the exact steps to disassemble a Springfree Trampoline in this article but check out our “Trampoline & Enclosure Disassembly Instructions” to see how to safely take down a Springfree Trampoline.
Note: There are important sequencing steps that need to be followed when removing the enclosure rods. It can become a safety hazard if you don’t!
