Great for Beginners
Where a regulation balance beam will measure 16-1/2’L, this junior balance beam sizes up at just 12’L, making it a more inviting prospect for younger students. Like a regulation beam, this smaller option also measures 4”W, which gives budding gymnasts the experience of a more advanced beam with a more consolidated proportion.
Despite its condensed length, this beam will work to support all of the major balance tricks and activities of a larger model, for students of a smaller stature and size. Students can practice walking and turning, cartwheels, vaulted mounts, and more with the confidence that they’re walking on a beam designed to support these activities.
The height of this adjustable balance beam can be tailored to meet each student who stands atop it. Height settings include 30-5/8”, 34-5/8”, 38-5/8” and 42-5/8”, with the highest setting still measuring 6-1/2” short of an official balance beam height. Lower the beam to reduce the trepidation and hesitation of brand new gymnasts and raise it up as they become comfortable with balancing and different balancing skills.
Even with the constant adjustment of height and the wear and tear that comes with walking atop it, this balance beam is designed to weather institutional wear. The beam itself is constructed of a steel core, covered in 120 gauge suede material, giving it a sturdy, yet friendly feel that helps students confidently maneuver atop it. The suede also delivers a high-end appeal that will keep your equipment looking newer for longer.
The base and upright of this unit are finished with a blue powder coating that protects them against abrasions and moisture that might otherwise affect the integrity of the structure. Powder coating also resists chipping, fading, and fracturing, which can be the bane of lesser finishes.
Beam is 12’L x 4”W; 132 lb. Truck delivery.
