- For 10+ years Zero Gravity has been synonymous with high specification, quality trampolines. During this time they have shied away from the cheaper end of the market as it was impossible to produce a safe high performance trampoline at such a low price. Technology has changed however and with Zero Gravity's PATENTED WELDLESS FRAME trampolines they can now offer their trampolines to a wider market without compromising quality and safety. Introducing the Zero Gravity Ultima 4 Trampoline...
- All Zero Gravity Ultima 4 trampolines feature a state of the art safety enclosure. A netting sited directly on the edge of the jumping surface supported by arced uprights improve safety in the event of a fall, whilst a wired top ring retains the shape and structure of the netting. The enclosure also features a QUICK RELEASE SYSTEM so that it can be taken down in minutes, this reduces wind hazards and is ideal for preventing unsupervised play.
- The safety padding's top surface is made from PVC rather than cheaper, inferior PE giving a quality look and feel that unlike PE will not disintegrate under UV light. SAFETY IS OF THE UTTERMOST IMPORTANCE so inside the padding you'll find 20mm thick EPE foam protecting your child against the steel frame.
- Even before gaining EN71 certification this trampoline went through extensive testing at the Zero Gravity testing lab. Including 500KG user weight testing and cycle testing. Did you know that while a welded trampolines frame will typically crack at 1 million cycles this trampoline has gone through OVER 2.5 MILLION CYCLES WITHOUT CRACKING.
- CUSTOMER SERVICE IS KEY to Zero Gravity Trampolines success. Although we believe the assembly guide supplied with this trampoline is one of the best available, should you have any questions while building your trampoline please feel free to call the Zero Gravity support line and one of their knowledgeable staff will be only to pleased to help.

With 30+ years experience in trampoline production we've learnt what makes a trampoline fun, safe & long lasting. A lot of the trampolines you'll see for sale on Amazon have been made in our factory under OEM. The Zero Gravity brand is our premium offering and utilises the latest technology for a great value, fun, safe & long lasting trampoline. Plenty of models for sale tick a lot of the boxes but can you tell if they are built to a budget with corners cut? Just a few tips on what to look for.
ENCLOSURE- There are two types of enclosure either an inner (attached to the edge of the jumping mat) or an outer (fits on the outside of the frame). Both are safe but if you are looking at a model with an outer enclosure ensure that the padding is as thick as possible over the frame as your childs head can easily come into contact with this whereas with an inner enclosure this cannot happen.
PADDING- The thicker the better. Find out what the outside of the padding is made from, PVC is preferable as it doesn't rot under UV light unlike PE which can crumble after a year or so.
LEGS- The more legs the trampoline has then the shorter the lengths of the upper frame sections can be. A shorter piece of steel is less likely to bend than a long length so the frame should be stronger.
JOINTS- The majority of trampolines are made from welded steel (does not apply to Zero Gravity which is weldless). The weld is the weak point on a frame so check to see if it has supporting plates to strengthen each joint. If an image is not shown of this component assume it doesn't or ask the seller.
MAX USER WEIGHT AND SPRINGS- Trampolines should only be used by one person at a time. Does your child really weigh 150KG or 23 stone? Trampolines should be tuned by the manufacturers for the weight of the user. If its over-sprung in order to increase max user weight then it could be less bouncy than one with a lower limit.

Zero Gravity Ultima 4 Trampolines
For over 10 years the Zero Gravity brand has been synonymous with high specification, quality trampolines. During this time they have shied away from the cheaper end of the market as it was impossible to produce a safe high performance trampoline at such a low price. Technology has changed however and with Zero Gravity's patented weldless frame trampolines they can now offer their trampolines to a wider market without compromising quality and more importantly, safety. Introducing the Zero Gravity Ultima 4 Trampoline...
With 30+ years experience in trampoline production, our factory has learnt what makes a trampoline fun, safe & long lasting. Many trampolines sold have been made in our factory under OEM. The Zero Gravity brand is our premium offering and utilises the latest technology for a great value, fun, safe & long lasting trampoline. Here's a few tips on what to look for...
So what should you look for when you are buying a trampoline?
Padding for your trampoline
There are 2 important factors to look for when assessing the quality of the padding used on a trampoline. The first is the material the outer skin is made from. It will be either made from PVC or PE, PVC is certainly preferable as it will not tear or rot under UV rays as easily as PE. Thickness of the padding inside is the most important thing though. We would always recommend that it should be 2cm in thickness especially if the trampoline has an external enclosure netting.
Maximum user weight and number of springs
Trampolines should only be used by one person at a time and are tested under EN-71 regulations on the assumption that this is the case. You may see trampolines with 120KG maximum user weight or even 150KG. Does your child really weigh 150KG or 23 stone? Trampolines should be tuned by the manufacturers for the weight of the user. If its over-sprung in order to increase the maximum user weight then it will be less bouncy than one with a lower limit. Higher maximum user weights mean that the springs are harder to stretch when used by a child and will therefore not produce the perfect bounce.
What to look for in a frame
The majority of trampolines are made from welded steel. This does not apply to the Zero Gravity Ultima 4 which has a patented weldless system as pictured above. The weld is the weak point on a frame so if you are looking at other models check to see if it has supporting plates to strengthen each joint. If an image is not shown of this component, assume it doesn't or ask the seller. Why is this important? Well tests in our factory have shown that a plated weld will typically crack after a million cycles (or bounces) in normal use, our weldless system will last for more than 2.5 million cycles. A trampoline is not cheap so you should look at it as an investment for many years - you want it to last.
Internal or external safety enclosure?
This trampoline has an internal enclosure, this means its attached to the outside of the jumping mat. We prefer the safety aspect of this design as it significantly reduces the chance of a child hitting their head against the frame of the trampoline even if it is covered with a padding. Its all down to personal preference but if you do choose a trampoline with an external enclosure please ensure that the padding is extra thick in order to reduce the risk of an accident, also ensure that your child does not use the netting as an extension of the trampoline. They are there solely to protect the user from falling and should not be used as another area to bounce off.
Why are the number of legs on a trampoline important?
There are two reasons why you want to have as many legs as possible on your trampoline. The first is down to stability, the more contact there is with the floor the more stable the trampoline will be. The second is the strength of the top frame. If you have a trampoline with 12 legs then the top frame will be made from 12 separate sections of steel whereas a trampoline with 8 legs will have 8 pieces of steel. On a 14ft trampoline (assuming that the steel used is identical) then each section of framework on the 12 leg variant will be over 3 times stronger than that of the 8 leg model.
Can your enclosure do this?
All Zero Gravity Ultima 4 trampolines have a quick release enclosure system. This allows you to lower the trampoline netting in minutes without the use of tools. Why would you want to do this? Well high winds can reek havoc on a trampoline. If strong winds are forecast you can lower the safety netting and reduce the risk of your children taking a flying lesson!

The net covering goes around the trampoline but connects on the inside making it very safe and has a zip that you can shut to make sure no one accidentally falls out.
The only negative I will say is that the ladder is hard on the feet when climbing in and out with just socks.
1. Use a soft mallet or bit of wood to tap tubes and T-pieces together.
2. Use a clamp (eg quick-release type) to squeeze the stem of the T-piece so it fits into the upright tube. This stem is in two halves, and squeezing the two halves together by hand is difficult.
3. Stretching the deck springs to hook into the frame gets very hard after the first few. I used some rope to pull the deck eyelets nearer to the frame, same theory as a block-and-tackle, ie threaded around twice.
4. You may know this already, but don't finally tighten things until it's fully assembled. Then don't forget to tighten!
Construction is strong enough. The main tubes are lightly galvanised.
The one we bought was the 14ft. In use, it works as promised - my wife and youngster use it together and my youngster is delighted.
Took a few hours to build following directions and tips from other buyers. best tip was to use a screwdriver to attach the springs to the net.
Its now a year later and still in excellent condition. Hours of jumping for all ages and stages.
