Continental is delighted to have received FIG approval for our NEW DESIGN competition ladies beam, with our innovative "SuperSoft" surface cushoining.
The beam is manufactured from a stable extruded aluminium body.
Between the epoxy powder coated height adjustable legs on non-marking robust rubber feet and the body, we incorporate an EDPM rubber shock absorption system to cushion the most firm landings.
The beam is upholstered in an artificial suedette that is exclusive to Continental. This material provides a combination of excellent grip to help nail landings, but also a perfect texture to allow low-friction pirouettes.
The NEW DESIGN "SuperSoft" top surface features a dual layer of two materials under the suedette:
6mm layer of hi-spring "EVA" foam providing additional lift to assist with airborne elements. This closed cell cross-linked ethylene copolymer foam has high durability and immediate rebound characteristics
8mm layer of resilient cushioning EDPM rubber to provide a stable and extremely flat top surface to the beam with cushoning to provide relief to the gymnasts' joints on landing
The beam incorporates solid rubber end caps and can also be supplied with a special inverted leg to permit safer dismount to a pit.
