Airtracks - What is an airtrack and what is it used for?
An airtrack is an inflatable flat surface for use in jumping and other home gymnastics. It can be used by all ages and levels. Airtracks are most commonly used for training jump combinations, such as tab flick, forward / backward solos, wind turbines and power jumps, and to achieve softer landings at higher jumps. The better the quality of an airtrack, the more gymnastics and other sports it can be used for.
The great thing about airtracks being inflatable is that they can easily be stored and moved around to your various destinations. Airtracks come in different lengths and thicknesses, as well as qualities - and so it is crucial to your choice of airtrack to consider what you will mainly use it for. Whether it is most for fun and play or training and practicing gymnastics.

Construction - How are airtracks made?
Airtracks are typically made of PVC, which is a feature-rich and durable material, making it ideal for airtracks and SUP boards. In fact, airtracks use some of the same technologies as SUPs for their design, including double rail and blind stitch technologies. Blind stitched is a sewing method that connects two surfaces together in a way that makes sewing almost invisible. Double rail technology reinforces the weakest point on the airtracks, namely the sides. Double rail adds an extra layer of protection to the sides to avoid punctures and significantly increases products life span.

Indoor and outdoor - Where to use your airtrack?
Airtracks can be used both indoors and outdoors, and are ideal for anyone who wants better access to gymnastics at home or in their garden for example. In addition, you can also bring your airtrack with you around the park or on the beach, to get some nice surroundings for your workout or as a fun little "playground" for the kids. However, keep in mind that the sun causes the pumped air to expand, so if the pressure is too high, the airtrack may puncture.
Apart from that, hot degrees from the sun can wear on the material and glue, so always be aware of how intense the heat is. If you use your airtrack outdoors it can also be smart to put a soft surface underneath, such as a rug, and always remember to remove sharp stones or anything that could possibly damage your airtrack.

Which airtrack is right for you?
When choosing the right airtrack for you, it depends most on what you want to use it for, as well as your weight. The bigger you are, the thicker an airtrack you will need, as you should preferably have a proper vent to make your jumps and achieve soft landings.
If you need an airtrack for play or beginner / light exercise for the youngest children, a shorter airtrack with a thickness of 10 cm would be a clear choice. They will be able to have hours of fun jumping and playing on the airtrack while training their movement and just tumbling around as activity.
For the slightly older children, their skill as gymnasts will play a role in their need for thickness and length of the airtrack. Longer airtracks will give them more opportunities for jump combinations and more space to unfold and become more proficient.
For trained gymnasts and adults, a longer airtrack with a thickness of 20 cm will greatly benefit their training and generally also provide far better options for jump combinations, as well as better take off and softer landings.
