Everlast produces a myriad of boxing equipment. I used the company’s boxing headgear, gloves and also this speed bag platform. These products have one thing in common. These are very affordable but truly some just suck and is this platform one of them? In this Everlast Elite Adjustable Speedbag Platform Review, you can find my experiences, the features of this product, warranty period and I will also make a point whether it is for you or not.

First of all and the most importantly the strike board is made of quality material and it is 1″. It is just enough to take a constant beating for a couple of years.
This platform uses Everlast Swivel which actually made my best list a long time ago. Basically, it provides good rebound rate and your speed bag won’t stop or give unnatural rebound rate ever. You have no idea that how much this actually happens with many other swivels and platforms. It also provides freedom for your speed bag which you can see it clearly in the video at the middle of the page.
My Experiences and Who Can Use This Platform?
In Thailand, I trained with it around 4 months. It was not a boxing, MMA or Muay Thai gym so I am actually glad that gym had a speed bag platform. Anyway, it is adjustable so it is actually perfect for a gym. Anyone can adjust it according to their height and train with it. You can also change the height and try different punching techniques etc.
I actually don’t know how much it was used in that gym before me but it was going strong and 1″ platform looks durable and can be used for a couple of years. As a side note, many boxing forum members say that they have been training with it more than 1-2 years. I think it is a really good sign about the durability.
It is also “more silent” than many other platforms and because of this many people get this speed bag platform for their own homes as well. You can seriously thank the material of the platform for this. Also, it has vibration inhibitor design which absorbs the shock and reduces the noise. This will also increase the durability of it. Speaking of the platform, as a side note it won’t hurt the cover material of your speed bag (considering that you have a quality speed bag) for a very long time and again it is a very common problem. This platform also reduces it and it is another advantage of it.
The diameter of this platform is 24″ and it is not too big or too small. You can hang any size speed bag to it.
You can check out the video which shows Everlast Elite Platform clearly and you can see it from many angles. You can also see the swivel and how it provides freedom below.
Installing and Usage: The manual has step by step guide and you can implement these within minutes. With that, if you have advanced installation question or any question, you can even call the call center. I also checked many verified purchase feedbacks on Amazon, it seems like everyone installed this platform without any issues. This platform comes with swivel and assembly hardware so you will just need to get a very basic wall mount hardware which can be found on Amazon or basically any place. It comes with 4 months warranty which is standard (as far as I know) for Everlast. It always gives 4 months for heavy bags, stands etc.
Who Should Not Get This Platform: Well, if you think of using a platform for a decade, you should go with X-MARK which can be found on at the top of my most quality platform list. However, if you plan on using a platform for a couple of years and don’t want to break the bank, then this is seriously your platform.
Quality Platform with Excellent Price
Everlast Elite Adjustable Speedbag Platform has an excellent price. Actually, many of my boxing gloves have more expensive price tag. According to me, this is the most important reason why it is the most sold speed bag platform on the market. I checked many online seller data, it sold a lot more than the others and it will give you way more than your money. I also used this adjustable platform in Thailand for months and always got a good workout and thanks to vibration inhibitor qualities, it will be durable. If you are interested, have a look at the price on Amazon and keep in mind that you will also have 120 days warranty.
Everlast has been producing this platform for a very long time and it has been used basically anywhere including MMA gyms, fitness centers and of course boxing gyms. Also, I have read many posts about this platform on many boxing sites, forums etc. and people are just pleased with the product and the price. Seriously, there is not much else to talk about Everlast Elite and you should definitely keep in mind that the other platforms, which are in the same price range, are just total jokes. These are generally not made of quality materials, don’t give smooth rebound rate or have any warranty periods whatsoever. If you consider the quality price ratio, Everlast is at the top spot without a doubt. I hope that you enjoyed reading my review and if you have any questions please leave a comment below and I will get back to you.
