Size and Weight

Let’s start with the basics: size and weight. These numbers are for the Vuly Ultra in size L and the 12-foot Oz Trampolines Summit.

Features

Both trampolines come packed with features, but there are notable differences.

  • Springs: Neither the Vuly Ultra nor the Oz Trampolines Summit is springless. Both use traditional springs.
  • Superfine Mesh: Both trampolines use superfine mesh for the safety net.
  • Self-Closing Entry: The Vuly Ultra has a self-closing entry, while the Summit does not. However, a tunnel entrance, like the one on the Summit, can prevent the entry from wearing out quickly.
  • Galvanised Steel Frame: Both trampolines have galvanised steel frames for durability.
  • Anchor Kit: The Summit includes an anchor kit, but with the Vuly Ultra, you need to purchase it separately.

Important

The Ultra doesn’t come with an anchor kit. We highly recommend purchasing the Vuly Trampoline Anchor Kit, which will secure your trampoline to the ground.

Safety

Both brands meet the Australian Safety Standard AS 4989:2015, ensuring they are built with safety in mind. Vuly also meets the USA’s ASTM standards, which can provide additional peace of mind.

Safety Features to Consider

  • Spring location: The Vuly Ultra springs that are external to the jumping area, while the Summit’s springs are internal.
  • Curved Safety Net Poles: The Vuly Ultra features curved safety net poles, which help prevent users from coming into contact with the poles. The Summit uses traditional straight poles.
  • Pole Padding: Both brands provide padding on their poles to protect users.

Price

Price is often a deciding factor. The Vuly Ultra retails for around $699, while the Oz Trampolines Summit is priced at $999. However, keep in mind that both brands frequently offer discounts and sales.

Warranty

Warranty is another important factor to consider.

  • Vuly Ultra: 5 years on the frame, 5 years on springs and mat, and 1 year on the safety net and pads.
  • Oz Trampolines Summit: 5 years on the frame, 2 years on springs and mat, and 2 years on the safety net and pads.

Longer Warranty Benefits

A longer warranty can provide peace of mind, ensuring that your investment is protected. The Summit’s 2-year warranty on the safety net and pads can be particularly beneficial, given that these parts are often the first to show wear.
