Sturdy Bamboo is at the heart of the Bam Balli Balance Board. Bamboo made into plywood has grown in popularity. It allows fast growing Bamboo to become a highly usable and strong building material. We use a high quality Bamboo which is all recyclable normally. Yes, it is harder to make each piece individually, but they end up with more character. No two of the Bam Balli Balance boards are the same but all are beautiful natural bamboo pieces made in the USA.
We designed two weight versions to better suit you as consumers. The Light version is just 1/2″ thick deck and is heavy enough to support up to 200 pounds but weighs in below 4 1/2 pounds. The Heavy version was designed for heavier users with a deck thickness of 3/4″ and it can support much more than the Light version with a carrying weight a bit over 5 pounds. As far as thickness, since the Heavy version is 30 percent thicker it should support at least 30 percent more.
We use clear water-based liquid sealer to retain the natural grain and keep the warm feel. We believe you will enjoy your new Bam Balli Balance board and we hope it improves your overall health and core development.
