Bounce Into Spring On The World’s Safest Trampoline

Jumping. Fresh air. Outdoor fun for your kids. Get it all on a Springfree trampoline.

You want to be the best mom ever. But you know that kids aren’t always thinking about safety. That’s why Springfree Trampoline has created the safest trampoline in the world. Our springless design has eliminated the impact areas that cause 90% of all product-related trampoline injuries!

How did they create the safest trampoline?

  1. They removed the springs and replaced them with mat rods.
  2. They moved the frame below the jumping surface making it impossible to fall on.
  3. They added safety nets with flexible rods to protect from falls to the ground.

They’ve gone to great lengths to reduce the chance of injury to give you peace of mind. When your kids are on a Springfree trampoline you know they’re playing safe.

THE BEST PART? They are giving away a Large Oval Springfree Trampoline and FlexrStep (ladder), plus delivery and installation. A prize package worth $2,097! See details on how to enter below.

Looking for something fun and free to do with the kids? Springfree is hosting Get Fit with BAM Academy on April 9th from 12-5pm. Then, stick around for a free concert on the Lawn! All at The Domain.
