Why Trust Us

In this review, we combine feedback from real customers with insights from our trampoline assembly expert.

His work assembling, dismantling, and even helping with repairs, provides a unique insight into the various pros and cons of each model.

Assembling the JumpFlex Flex

Build Quality & Materials

The JumpFlex Flex trampoline impresses with its robust galvanised steel frame, complemented by a powder-coated finish to enhance weather resistance and longevity. This is a feature seldom found on trampolines in this price range.

This trampoline utilises 72 springs (about average for its size), ensuring a sturdy and responsive bounce. Our expert has observed over time that the net, mat and padding on this model are fairly long-lasting. He also says “the frame is adequate and doesn’t rust”.

He does, however, point out one design problem, stating that “the Velcro holding the net to the top of the poles deteriorates in the sun and will fail eventually.” Despite this, customer consensus suggests that the Flex maintains its integrity over time and isn’t prone to rust or other structural problems.

Safety Features & Standards

Safety takes precedence in this trampolines design, with features such as curved safety net poles and a superfine mesh net ensuring a secure bouncing space. 

Our expert commented on its “nice high net” and the fact that it comes with a ladder, something that is usually an optional accessory. He also likes how the net and mat join together to keep jumpers away from the springs.

One apparent downside here is that JumpFlex Flex doesn’t appear to meet the (voluntary) Australian Trampoline safety standards (AS 4989:2015). However, we have been informed that it meets International standards ASTM F381-16 and ASTM F2225-15(R2020).

Bounce and Performance

The JumpFlex “Flex” is designed to cater to a wide range of users with its 150kg weight capacity. Positive feedback from users suggests that the trampoline delivers good bounce quality and an overall satisfying and fun experience. 

The traditional spring setup (in contrast to new springless designs) is favoured by users for its reliable performance, ensuring that everyone from the smallest children to adults can enjoy the trampoline to its fullest.

Ease of Assembly

Assembling the JumpFlex Flex is fairly straightforward. Our expert goes so far as to say that assembling this trampoline is easy, and he also appreciates the handy tool that is included which helps with getting the springs attached to the mat. 

This ease of setup is further supported by the availability of replacement parts directly from JumpFlex, suggesting that the company prioritises customer satisfaction and long-term usability.

Value for Money

Priced at $749 AUD, the Flex presents excellent value. It balances affordability with quality, offering durability, safety, and enjoyable bounce performance. 

Our expert views it as a cost-effective alternative to pricier models, without significant compromises on essential features. He calls it “a simple, safe trampoline with all of the safety features of more expensive brands”.

Additional Features & Accessories

The Flex supports several optional accessories, such as a shade cover, slide, and basketball hoop, enhancing its appeal and versatility. While the inclusion of a ladder is great, the need to purchase the anchor kit separately is a slight inconvenience. 

Customer Service

Feedback on JumpFlex’s customer service is generally positive. While some users have faced issues with delivery times and other issues, in general, JumpFlex appears responsive and helpful, addressing customer needs and concerns effectively.

Warranty

The warranty coverage for the “Flex” includes 5 years on the frame and 1 year on the springs, mat, safety net, and pads. While it would be great to have better coverage on the non-frame components, this is fairly similar coverage to other models in this price range.
