The most important “part” on an Air-Trekker Jumping Stilt is the carbon fiber leaf spring. Although it is made with millions of tiny fibers epoxed together, it is not indestructible. We strongly recommend you be very careful NOT to damage the spring. So protect them!!
1. The most popular method jumpers use is to wrap electrical tape around the springs.
2. Or go to PROJUMPFORUM.COM. This is our sister brand located in the UK. “Naz” runs a great business and claims that the UK is 3-4 years ahead of the USA in jumping stilt market penetration. This forum is full of great ideas. You will find many methods of protecting your springs there.
3. Mr. Benedict, from the USA sent us the following link showing his innovative way to protect his springs.
The more you fall on hard surfaces, the more you knick the spring…….the shorter the life expectancy of the spring. Protect them!!
