The SkyBound Atmos trampoline looks sharp and we really liked its new design. Those great green details look very exciting, plus, it has the uncommon octagonal shape going for it – in the sea of round trampolines, this is a welcome breath of fresh air. The manufacturer recommends that ages 6 and up use the trampoline, but this sounds a bit excessive, as 8ft trampolines are generally recommended for children up to the age of 8 or younger. The maximum rated weight is 175 lbs but this is usual and honestly more than enough for the intended audience.
Weight limit: 175 lbs (80kg)
Recommended for: Younger children, age 5-8
Review of SkyBound Atmos 8 ft Trampoline with Full Enclosure Net System
The trampoline is 8 ft in wide and, as we said, it has an octagonal frame but the jumping surface is round so falls into the category of “round trampolines“. Skybound says it was designed with smaller spaces in mind, and we can agree with them. It fits into cramped and small garden spaces pretty well. We feel it’s the perfect size for younger children or even teenagers.
Frame & Safety Pad
The frame is made of steel, which means it should be sturdy and strong. It is. The steel is also powder-coated and galvanized. This helps prevent rust and corrosion from damaging the trampoline – which can severely shorten its lifespan and present a safety hazard. They are so sure of the quality that they give a 10-year warranty on the frame.
The legs of the trampoline are ball-joint welded and provide very good security. An interesting feature is that its plastic legs are pivot-able, which means you’ll be able to set up your trampoline even on surfaces that are a bit uneven. Because of them, the trampoline won’t tilt during use.
The safety pads, which cover the springs, are coated with UV resistant vinyl helps prevent early deterioration from solar radiation, which is an issue with almost all outdoor trampolines. The trampoline is designed to meet or exceed the US trampoline safety requirements. The actual height of the mat from the floor is 24 inches.
The enclosure is superbly made. The shape is such that the enclosure protects the user from ever missing the jumping surface since it attaches to the trampoline mat, instead of just encircling it. This is a great safety solution, which makes the trampoline as safe as it can get for children. Such a setup greatly reduces the risk of injury from contact with springs or the steel frame. The net is also made of UV-resistant materials. The enclosure poles have a soft foam layer, which provides an additional layer of security. The overall height of the enclosure net is 65-inches, and the overall trampoline height is approx. 90-inches.
The warranty offered by Skybound is extremely good. We were amazed by the 10-year warranty on the frame which really is, as the company states, “industry-leading”. Other parts come with a shorter warranty, but it’s still fairly good. Springs, enclosure net, and all other parts come with a 1-year warranty; except for the safety pads, with have a 6 months warranty.
The octagonal shape allows the trampoline to better distribute the weight and forces across the whole surface. This helps with the jumper’s balance, which is especially important for children, whose coordination isn’t as developed. As it has 58 springs, only 5.5″ long, the bounce itself is not too high, and we felt that the trampoline itself is really safe, and the bounce is just as it should be for children.
The trampoline is fairly easy to set up and get running. The enclosure net has a sleeve that you place onto the pole and is secured with a Velcro strap. It’s quick and convenient.
