What Makes i2kAirPads Gymnastics Safety Equipment (aka AirBags) different then a Traditional Gymnastics Mat?
We’re the trusted provider of fall protection equipment for gymnastics because we build inflatable airbags for gymnastics (i2kAirPads) with the most advanced impact technology available. Our patented ZeroShock technology offers unmatched fall protection to gymnasts and athletes of all kinds.
Not only are i2k AirPads more soft than standard fall inflatables and foam pits, gymnasts can also safely land anywhere on the bag—right up to the edge—without getting bounced or injured!
The Dirty Truth About Gymnastics Foam Pits vs. Inflatable Mats
Traditional gymnastics foam pits filled with foam blocks collect bacteria and deteriorate over time. In our post-covid world constantly cleaning foam can cause it to break down faster, making foam blocks expensive to maintain and to replace.
With AirPads, you save money on maintenance costs, because i2k AirPads last for years even with repetitively heavy use. The top sheet is easy to clean and inexpensive to replace. Also, unlike foam pit landing systems, AirPads will not harbor smells, dust, and bacteria. They will not break down and spread hazardous foam pellets.
Tumbling Mat vs AirPads: Why Choose AirPads Over Foam Mats?
Traditional gymnastics mats or foam blocks can dry out over time and deteriorate with use, making even a spongy foam block feel hard and brittle. Create softer, more secure landings by using AirPad technology at your gym.

Foam Blocks vs AirPads
Traditional gymnastics foam pits made with foam blocks collect bacteria and deteriorate over time. In our post-COVID-19 world, constantly cleaning foam can cause it to break down faster. AirPads last longer than foam blocks, are easy to clean and inexpensive to replace. Unlike spongy foam pits and other landing systems, AirPads won’t harbor odors and bacteria.
Gymnastics Foam Pits & Covid-19
According to USA Gymnastics, cleaning foam pits requires vacuuming or sweeping to remove dust and debris prior and wiping outside surfaces with mat cleaner or spray disinfectant using a damp rag or Swiffer type brush.

How our Patented ZeroShock Impact Technology Works as a Inflatable Gymnastics Mat
Instead of feeling a rigid jolt as a one’s body comes into contact with a surface, i2k wants people to experience a totally shock-free landing experience. ZeroShock technology was carefully developed to allow jumpers and athletes to push their boundaries more safely and comfortably than ever before.
Unlike other airbags, our i2kAirPad’s ZeroShock technology releases air gently. Individual Crumple Tubes form around a person’s body to carefully cradle their impact. These Crumple Tubes are a series of cylindrical tubes that sit below the “floating” top surface sheet of the i2k AirPad.
When a body hits and indents the top surface of the inflatable gymnastics mat, a small amount of air within the Crumple Tubes immediately expels into the base bag below, cushioning your gymnasts’ falls. Way safer and cleaner than a traditional inflatable gymnastics foam pits.
High-Quality Materials Used in i2k AirPad
When it comes to material, we put safety first. Our i2k AirPads use the best materials known to man. All i2k AirPads are manufactured with the highest-grade materials right here in California. We use our proprietary Silicone-Coated Ballistic Nylon (SCBN) for our patented Crumple Tubes, as well as our primary top sheet, which ensures:
- You will never have delamination problems associated with vinyl
- You will never get a rip or tear in the top sheet
- It creates an antimicrobial and antiviral layer that simplifies sanitization
Combined with state-of-the-art engineering, i2k’s replacement for gymnastics foam pits makes for a powerful gymnastics fall protection product. One with impeccable build quality that exceeds safety standards to keep your gymnast’s training running smoothly.
