The AirTrack 10 is 3x10x4 which is perfect for practicing in smaller spaces. It offers a mat long enough for getting a trick in while compact enough for small backyards, gyms and studios.

AirTrack 16 Pro
The AirTrack 16 Pro measures 3x16x8 and weighs approximately 78lbs with the electric pump. This mat works great in gyms or those who have access to large open areas.
