Gymnastics AirBag S Landing

The soft touch of air

The AirBag S by AirTrack Factory is one of our latest innovations. This new training tool is there to help you back down safely. It’s the small version of our bigger built in AirBags and can be placed anywhere in your gym. But what makes this new equipment so smart, and how is it beneficial for your gym? Let us explain.

First and foremost the most important and predictable argument is that it is soft. But like all our equipment, it is soft in a smart way. A simple pressure regulation system was built in so that gymnasts or coaches can easily alter the internal pressure. Very soft for nice backlandings, getting rid of that fear barrier and getting the athlete comfortable with their movements. Then something in between soft and firm, to get more comfortable with upright landings without losing that safety for when things don’t go as planned. Then there’s the most firm option, to be able to stick your landings and getting fully comfortable with trying it on a mat. This variety in pressure makes learning new skills more pleasurable and less freighting.

The AirBag S is portable

Secondly, the AirBag S is portable. Like any other piece of AirTrack Factory equipment it is small in storage and lightweight. This means that it can be easily moved around the gym, creating a very versatile landing mat. Place it after the beam to get those dismounts down, or even right under your beam to prevent gymnasts from falling all the way down hurting themselves. It can be placed behind the vault box to practice those tricky to learn Tsukaharas. This makes the AirBag S not only very suitable for the specialized gymnastics facilities but also for clubs who train in regular gyms and do not have access to a foam pit!

Then there is the benefit of it being able to deflate, making it about 10% of its original size. This is ideal for clubs that have limited storage or clubs who do not want a permanent set up. simply switch off the blower, roll it up and store it. That’s all there is to it!

Tested by the best!

Lastly, the AirBag has been developed with and tested by elite athletes and coaches. These athletes know what they like and more importantly, know what makes their training more fun and efficient. They have helped with the placement of additional Velcro to make your AirBag easily connectible with an AirTrack by AirTrack Factory, safety lines and the softness and friction-free top sheets. This knowledge combined with the air-expertise of AirTrack Factory make this new product something that we are proud to stand behind.

As with all our equipment, we are constantly innovating and evolving the equipment to make it even better for its users. Do you have an idea that would make our equipment better? Let us know!
