How wide should your AirTrack be?
We supply AirTracks as standard in a width of one, one and a half and 2 meters wide. To start with, the width naturally depends on your budget, the wider the Airtrack, the more expensive. he becomes
The main reason for taking a wider Airtrack is that you have more freedom when practicing. It often helps to learn your tricks faster because if you make a mistake you are not immediately next to the mat. It is especially useful for freerunning, freestyle and martial arts such as Judo to have a wider Airtrack. If the Airtrack is mainly used for gymnastics or dancing, a 1 meter wide one will suffice.
How thick should your AirTrack be?
Our AirTracks are standard available in a thickness of 10, 15, 20 and 30 cm .
Due to its relatively low price, the 10 cm is an excellent choice as an entry-level model to get started with an AirTrack.
The thicker 15, 20 and 30 cm AirTrack gives you more options for use . This gives you the option of increasing the air pressure for a firmer surface or lowering it for a softer surface. Lower air pressure provides an easy take-off and softer landing and is ideal for beginners or advanced exercisers looking to learn new exercises. A higher air pressure helps advanced athletes with a faster take-off.
The spring properties of a 10 cm thick Airtrack are comparable to those of a gymnastics mat. The thicker 15, 20 and 30 cm also have these properties when fully inflated, but tend more towards a bouncy castle/tumbling track when you pump the Airtrack less hard.
If you are still in doubt about which thickness is the right one for you, choose the all-round 20 cm Airtrack, with this you are always in the right place.
How tall should you be AirTrack?
When determining the length of the Airtrack, a number of choices play a role. Do you only want to use the Airtrack outside or also inside? Look carefully at the space that is available. Many people choose to buy 2 smaller 3 or 4 meter Airtracks in combination with a connector. This allows you to make a long track outside and if you go inside, it also fits. In addition, you can easily take 2 smaller Airtracks with you and you can also use them on the water as a sup.
In freerunning and martial arts, a wide Airtrack is more important than a long one. If the Airtrack is mainly used for gymnastics, the rule applies, the longer the better!
