Competition-style beam for home practiceUltra low profile, the Powerfly Balance Beam mimics competition beams without the height, so aspiring gymnasts can practice and play safely. The beam work surface is a standard 4in (10cm) wide, but stands just 2.5in (5cm) off the floor, dramatically reducing the risks from a slip or fall; the length is 8 feet. The low profile makes it a great training beam, as young athletes can practice new moves safely and in comfort. Heavy-grade synthetic suede mimics the feel of a competition beam and is also easy to clean.Safe, sturdy and easy to storeDesigned to be used at home, by children, the Powerfly Balance Beam lies flat to the floor while in use. The wooden base is cross-laminated for strength and to prevent warping. Fire-retardant foam padding, as used on competition beams, make it both safe and sturdy so it can take a pounding. Its upper weight limit is 110lb (50kg) making it ideal for children. It folds in half for easy storage, and so light and easy to use that your kids can set it up and can carry it around by themselves.
