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

Springfree Trampoline Assembly

Build Quality & Materials

Springfree’s commitment to durability is evident in its use of a galvanised, powder-coated steel frame, designed to endure the elements. Our expert considers this to be the longest-lasting trampoline frame on the market and also praises the “extra durable net and mat”, commenting that there are generally no parts that need replacing from normal use.

In terms of potential issues, he does note that the zip can eventually break if care is not taken (we’d actually prefer to see a self-closing entry here, but it’s not a dealbreaker). He also adds that the cosmetic ribbon bordering the mat can wear out in the doorway area.

The popular Medium Round model weighs in at only 96.6kg, which our expert notes makes it “very easy to move to mow the lawn”.

Safety Features & Standards

This trampoline meets the Australian Trampoline Standard AS 4989:2015, showcasing its safety-first design. Eliminating traditional springs for fibreglass rods, alongside curved safety net poles and superfine mesh, it provides a very secure bouncing space.

Our expert praises its safety, noting that the springless design means there are “no springs to pinch you and a strong and flexible net to keep everyone safe,” and added that he thinks it surpasses industry safety benchmarks. He considers it to be “the safest and longest lasting trampoline in Australian backyards”.

Bounce and Performance

While springless trampoline designs are often considered inferior in terms of bounce, Springfree user feedback suggests a high-quality, enjoyable experience. Its capacity to support up to 700 kg highlights its versatility for users of all ages and sizes.

Ease of Assembly

Assembly is one area where customers often get frustrated with Springfree models. Our expert recommends using a professional if possible, however, added that most people can figure it out themselves by following the instructions, especially with the help of assembly videos online. He also noted that “stickers aid in aligning the net, mat, and frame correctly, simplifying the process”.

Value for Money

Despite a high initial cost, we think Springfree’s safety, durability, and overall quality make it a justified investment for lasting backyard fun. They also probably have the highest resale value of any trampoline on the market. The high ticket price is also balanced by the impressive ten-year warranty on the frame, springs (fibreglass rods), mat, and safety net.

Springfree has the most comprehensive warranty of any trampoline brand we’ve looked at. It offers ten-year coverage across all major components – including the frame, springs (fibreglass rods), mat, and safety net – emphasising the brand’s confidence in its product’s longevity and quality.
