We have spent lots of time developing this bias cut trampoline to our high quality standards.
Our heavy-duty mesh one-piece bias cut trampoline is very well built with these unique features:
Bias cut one-piece design for uniform tension
Rear lacing only with built in rear linecatcher
Adjustable hiking straps
12 x 12" halyard pocket near the mast base
Made of high-quality and very durable trampoline mesh (8oz. polypropylene basket weave mesh)
Sewn with large size V-138 UV-stabilized polyester thread (Teflon thread available as an upgrade for ultimate UV resistance)
Heavily reinforced with 3" wide heavy-weight polypropylene webbing in grommet areas
At least five rows of stitching in high-load areas (compared to 2 rows from other manufacturers)
Multi-layer construction in high-stress sections to better spread the load; three layers of mesh and a layer of webbing
We personally pounds each #4 spur grommet by hand (spur grommets are tough; they have 'teeth' that bite into the fabric)
Aft grommets installed on 4" centers (Hobie® originally installed them on 6" centers)
One-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship
Two Sections: main section plus the aft lace strip
Available Options (at an extra cost):
Tenara Teflon Thread - By adding this option to your trampoline order we'll sew your new SLO Sail and Canvas trampoline in Tenara Teflon thread by Gore. Tenara has a 15 year warranty in the sun. If you store your boat on the beach this is the best thing you can add to extend the life of your trampoline. Our standard thread is a V-138 polyester thread that is UV stabilized and will last 5-7 years+ in the sun.
Zippered Pocket - A larger zippered pocket perfect to hold water bottles, lunch, or sunscreen. The pocket dimensions are roughly 15"x18" and 4" tall. Dimensions may vary slightly depending on the trampoline because of other things getting in the way of a bigger pocket such as hiking straps and lacing grommets, trapeze grommets, jib strop grommets etc. We put the pocket inboard of the hiking straps on Hobie 14 and Hobie 16's on the starboard side of the trampoline. Prindle trampolines will have the zippered pocket on the port side of the trampoline inboard of the hiking straps and opposite the standard halyard pocket we include on all trampolines.
Lace Kit - Pre cut 1/4" (and sometimes 1/8") line to lace up your new trampoline. Available in white or black.

Please let us know if you have a Hobie® 18 with Magnum or SX wings added. We will need to include a shorter aft strip to clear the wing mounting hardware.
