Review of Acon Air 4.3 Trampoline with Premium Enclosure
Believe it or not, Acon USA Inc. trampolines are one of the first trampolines that actually have NO SINGLE USER WEIGHT LIMIT. Thicker and stronger frame & mat, along with ultra durable and long springs are enough to bring confidence for Acon Air to remove weight limit. There’s no question that this is a seriously heavy duty trampoline. So we come to the bigger one – Is Acon Air 14ft round trampoline worth your money?

Specifications of Acon Air 4.3 14 ft Round Trampoline
As this trampoline originates from Finland, one of the richest European/Scandinavian countries, trust me when I say that precision and quality of manufacturing process can only be at highest level of excellence.
Acon Air, globaly branded trampoline (had huge help from a fact that it doesn`t have weight limit), is trampoline whose specs are right beside current market leaders: Springfree Medium Round, Vuly Thunder, JumpSport Elite or SkyBound Stratos, among several others…
Double galvanized 2″ thick steel frame with pipe thickness of .08″, making it incredibly sturdy but also very heavy, so have in mind that moving it is not a simple task.
96 pieces of 8,5″ (21,5cm) heavy gauge steel springs with spring preload of 69N (force of 69 newtons is equivalent to force of 15.5 lb and will certainly give you a lift you need!)
6 cross-sewed polypropylene mat is UV treated and will withstand longer exposures to direct sunlight. Mat is very thick and looks very strong, and with normal use will last for long time. Bounce itself is average, but due to thickness we haven`t expected anything else, or maybe those springs a bit heavier tester – you are welcome to let us know your thoughts on it. So for now let`s just say that mat is fine tuned for everyone.
Padding itself is made from 1.2″ thick rubber vinyl coated pad which is almost 14″ wide… Padding looks well constructed and feels very substantial. The vinyl covering on the pad is very heavy and thick and looks like it will withstand all kind of weather conditions. Currently, padding is only available in single color – green.
The enclosure net is really strong and well designed, but is very difficult to fasten it to the mat with the supplied cord. If you have any, we recommend using zip-ties as complete process will be much faster. .. Tension of enclosure is very good, and due to weight of trampoline (240 lbs) is almost impossible to flip it over. And if you still think about safety, be aware that enclosure is connected directly to mat, so it is almost impossible to hit springs or frame itself.
Ends of the tubes should be smoothed as you could pinch yourself when installing the top of the net to the net support tubes.
Manual is fine and assembly is pretty straight-forward, without any complications, but we would recommend going through them before you begin. Use both the written instructions and the pictures, because it’s very easy to make a minor mistake when fitting the enclosure net – and we can assure you, that’s the task you don’t want to do twice!
