Key Differences

Width – The Thunder Pro is significantly larger in terms of the trampoline width, with each size (M, L, XL) being a similar width to the size up in the original Thunder. So, the Thunder (L) is the same width as the Thunder Pro (M), and the Thunder (XL) is a similar width to the Thunder Pro (L). Note, however, that the actual frame width is similar between the two models.

Safety net height – At 190cm, Vuly claims the Thunder Pro has the world’s tallest safety net. The original Thunder has a net height of 180cm.

Full length door – While both of these trampolines have a flexible entry that snaps closed when you let go, the door on Thunder Pro runs the full height of the safety net.

Next generation leaf springs – The leaf springs on the Thunder pro stretch from the bouncing surface all the way to the ground, providing superior bounce.

No underside access – Due to its design, the Thunder Pro prevents access underneath the trampoline. Both models come with a safety skirt around the springs.

Price – There is a significant price difference between these two models. Unless you really want the p[premium features found on the Thunder Pro, the original Thunder will be the best option for most people.

Important:

Whichever Vuly Thunder trampoline you choose, we highly recommend also purchasing the Vuly Trampoline Anchor Kit, which will secure your trampoline to the ground.

Key Similarities

No contact design – Curved hour-glass shaped netting means no contact with poles.

Springless and padless – Both trampolines allow for edge to edge bouncing thanks to their no-spring design.

Durable netting – Tightly woven to be strong yet soft on contact. It is also UV resistant and is thoroughly tested in real weather conditions.

Trampoline games – Both models have images printed onto the bouncing surface to be used for games.

No contact injuries – The spring system on both models is located outside the bouncing area.

Sturdy frame – Both the Vuly Thunder and Thunder Pro feature a dual-ring steel frame that is galvanised both inside and out to protect against rust.

Max user weight – Both trampolines have a max user weight limit of 150kg.

Making your selection

Both the Vuly Thunder and Vuly Thunder Pro are excellent springless trampolines that provide kids with hours of fun and exercise.

The Vuly Thunder Pro is a more premium product because it features next-generation leaf springs instead of the standard leaf springs. However, the standard leaf springs have proven themselves over time, so we consider both options an excellent choice.

We recommend the standard Vuly Thunder for most people, as it is more affordable and boasts the same core construction and safety features as the Thunder Pro.
