Vuly Ultra vs Lift 2 Trampolines: Which is Right for Your Family?

Choosing the right trampoline for your family is a big decision. You want something safe, durable, and fun for everyone. Unfortunately, trampoline injuries are not uncommon, and many trampolines end up in landfill each year because they aren’t built to withstand the elements.

Thankfully, Vuly offers two excellent options: the Ultra and the Lift 2. Both trampolines are designed with safety and durability in mind. They both feature a robust build, high-quality materials, and comprehensive warranties, ensuring peace of mind for parents and endless fun for kids. Let’s evaluate each model to see which fits your family’s needs best.

Before diving in, we recommend you read this guide on Vuly’s blog, which outlines the key differences between each model: Choosing a Vuly Trampoline – Which Model Suits You?

The Vuly Ultra is a mid-range trampoline offering solid build quality, excellent safety features, and a reasonable price. It’s designed to be a durable and fun addition to any backyard. Vuly’s Ultra model is praised for its robust construction, good bounce, and ease of assembly, making it a popular choice for many families.

Vuly Lift 2

The Vuly Lift 2 is a premium model with enhanced features and build quality. It has a powder-coated frame and superior safety features. It’s built to last and handle the harsh Australian climate.

The Lift 2 has superior build quality with its powder-coated frame, dual ring frame, and flippable padding. This makes it more durable and better suited to withstand the elements, making it a great long-term investment.

According to Vuly, “the Lift 2 features higher quality in the materials of the net, mat, and safety padding”.

However, the Ultra should last you a long time as well. Our expert says “the Ultra’s frame, springs, mat, and padding are sufficiently strong and long-lasting. The Ultra holds up well in all kinds of weather.”
