No more hanging your feet off the end of the bed!
The Athlete bed is specially designed for tall individuals who require more room at the foot of the mattress.
Switch the feel of your mattress in minutes!
Who wants to be stuck with a mattress that they don’t like? If you order a mattress online and you end up not liking the feel, what do you do? We’ve solved this issue by designing a mattress that allows you to change the feel to your liking simply by flipping or removing mattress layers. You’re getting six mattresses in one! Learn More.
Sleep at the Perfect Temperature
The top layers of the mattress merge 2” of cooling gel memory foam and 2” of temperature neutral Talalay latex. These layers are wrapped in a soft organic cotton cover, providing you with the perfect blend of materials that help to regulate body temperature at night.
You Won’t Need to Adjust the Layers
There is no need to re-adjust the top and bottom mattress layers! Our patent pending “Zip in Place” system zips the layers together, preventing them from shifting around at night.
Rest assured your mattress is built by hand right here in the US using only the highest quality materials.
Supports up to 50% More Body Weight
Individually pocketed coils can support individuals weighing up to 300 lbs. Foam is not able to support as much weight and tends to wear out much faster as a result, causing premature impressions and sagging in the mattress.
Lasts Twice as Long
Other retailers use inexpensive, poor-quality foam to build the base support layer.
The support layer of our athlete bed is made with high quality, individually pocketed coils, and are much more supportive and durable than foam.
8″ Individually pocketed coils
provide unmatched comfort and support
1.5″ aire flow foam
provides a channel for warm air to disperse
out the sides of the mattress
2″ cooling gel memory foam
gives the mattress a luxurious feel
without trapping heat
Soft organic cotton cover
is smooth to the touch, durable, and breathable
Total Height: 13.5″
Comfort Layer (top):
- 1” Soft Organic Cotton Quilt
- 2” 4 LB Gel Memory Foam
- 2” Talalay Latex
- Smooth Top Organic Cotton Bottom
Support Layer (base):
- 1 ¼ 1.8 LB Convoluted Foam layer (firm side)
- 6” Individually pocketed coils, foam encased
- ¾” High density foam (very firm side)
Easy to Move and Setup
Moving this mattress is easier than you might think. The mattress is shipped via FedEx in three pieces, instead of one. Carrying the separate pieces up a flight of stairs or maneuvering around corners into your bedroom is much more manageable. Other athlete beds are built as one, massive piece, requiring 4-5 people (at least) just to move it!
Easier to Rotate
We suggest rotating your mattress every 3-6 months so that it wears evenly. Due to the fact that it is made in three pieces, rotating is easy!
Save over $1000 in “built in” shipping costs
Other mattress companies may claim “Free Shipping”, but we all know you are paying for that shipping somewhere in their price. Due to the size, their mattresses are often required to ship via freight, and you’re the ones that’s going to pay for it! With our patented design, your mattress will be compressed, rolled, and shipped via FedEx – saving you those costs.
Lower Replacement Costs
When the day arrives that you feel the need to replace your family bed, you’ll save money by simply replacing the top layer, rather than the entire bed. In most mattresses, regardless of manufacturer, the top layers are the first part of the mattress to wear out.
How to Change the Feel of Your Mattress
By flipping or removing layers, it is possible to create up to 6 firmness options. As soon as you’ve dialed in your perfect firmness, simply zip all the layers in place!
Flip a layer:
5” Comfort Layer:
- The top side construction is a 1” organic quilt and 2” of soft gel memory foam. The bottom side is a cushion firm Talalay latex covered in a smooth top organic cotton.
Note: The easiest way to flip this layer over is to FIRST roll it up from one end to the other. Trying to flip it like you would a blanket will be a lot more difficult.
8.5” Support Layer:
- One side of your base pieces are considered ‘firm’ and the other side is ‘very firm’.
Remove a layer:
- You can sleep on the top comfort layer without the support layer as long as it’s placed on a flat surface (ex: carpet, plywood, etc).
- You can also choose to sleep on the base layer, if you prefer a firm feel (this increases the number of options to 8!). Remember though, the base is two separate pieces zipped together, so using it this way will create a small gap between the two pieces.
- Note: The biggest challenge you’ll run into when removing a layer is where to put the pieces you’re not using. So keep that in mind before choosing to do this
Oversized Bed FAQs
Q. Why do you make this mattress in three pieces instead of one?
A. Although we are capable of building an oversized mattress in one piece, we found that the three piece design works best. It is much easier to setup, and it gives you the ability to customize the feel of your mattress; something you cannot do with a one-piece design
Q. What is the minimum size room for an athlete king bed?
Q. What are the dimensions of an Athlete Bed?
A. 80×108 or 204 cm x 274 cm
Q. Can you make sheets and a mattress protector to fit this size?
A. Yes! We can certainly make athlete bed sheets. Currently we do not have them listed on the website, but we will soon. In the meantime, please feel free to call us for pricing 888-488-1468 and to place an order.
Q. Do you carry bed frames and box springs to fit these sizes?
A. For the family bed and athlete size, we offer metal foundations that take the place of both the boxspring and the bedframe. Note: For all other sizes like Alaskan King, Alberta King, and Wyoming King, you can either place them on the floor or have a carpenter or local furniture manufacturer make you a bed.
Q. Can this be used on an adjustable bed and do you sell them?
A. We do offer adjustable beds. Please call us for a quote.
Q. Do I have a return policy with this mattress?
A. The 121 day trial period does not apply with any of our oversized/giant mattresses. Due to the cost of labor (our oversized mattresses are custom handmade just for you) and materials, we do not accept returns or cancellations once we start production.
Q. How will it ship?
A. Your mattress consists of three pieces. The comfort layer and 2 bases that make up the support layer. All three are compressed, rolled, and boxed separately. All three will ship via FedEX ground.
