Product Review: Zebra MMA Mats

Overview

The Zebra MMA Mats are made with a high quality 15 lb./cubic foot multi-density re-bonded polyurethane foam core that provides superior impact protection (7.5 times more foam protection than the roll out competition), while its softer foam core makes it perfect for those lengthy rolling and grappling sessions. Zebra’s MMA Mats feature a smooth non-slip vinyl surface that eliminates mat burns and makes them easy to clean. The MMA Mats come complete with an anti-skid bottom for stability. No Velcro or Tape required. Can be cut to fit any size area per recommended cutting instructions.

 

Technology

Zebra Mats use an “open cell technology” meaning that the foam core does not contain any air bubbles. When a force hits the mat, air rushes out and the mat absorbs the shock. This type of mat will not expand nor contract due to temperature changes and will last A LOT longer than mats that utilize closed-cell technology (eg; roll-out mats and puzzle mats) which essentially contain trapped air. When a force hits a closed-cell mat, one of two things occurs (1) The mat rejects the force and the falling object (the person) absorbs most of the shock and is repelled (2) The mat compresses so much that the air bubbles burst and break down. Over time, this causes the mat to deaden or have soft spots.

    Pretty sure we use these mats at our gym and they are sweet. Getting a solid mat is actually more important than most think. You end up getting all cut up if the mat isn’t good.
