The mat is constructed using high density foam, with the front of the mat covered in 18oz vinyl, with the cartwheel hands printed in white, the back of the mat is covered in closed loop carpet with a white velcro line down the centre. The small area which sits on the floor when laid out folds up and out of the way with two Velcro tabs.
The door onto which the mat will be mounted should not be more than 3.5cm thick.
What mats are best for each piece of equipment?
At Zuu, we believe that you should always keep your gymnast safe by accompanying a mat with some of the key apparatus. For our High Fly Bars our suggestion is to use one of our mats underneath the apparatus to support your gymnast in case they fall.
We also suggest a mat for your beams and other bars, we have 2m to 3m folding options that provide great support for your gymnast as they tackle different routines. These can be placed on either side or underneath the beam or bars. We always recommend that you consider a mat, regardless of the beam or bar, or competency of your child.
