Jo Wicks set up Elite tracks UK Ltd in 2018 after helping successfully set up and launch Sandbanks style paddleboard company over 6 years earlier.
The technology in both products is fairly similar and she saw inflatable AirTrack’s start to take off in the Uk and wanted to use the opportunity to branch out on her own.
She already had contacts in manufacturing and so managed to source a factory that would supply higher quality tracks than some that are coming into the UK whilst making them affordable for the average family.
Her aim for the business is to supply a first class service as well as product. Her background in sales and marketing has helped her take the business forward and Jo is hoping to be one of the leading names in inflatable Home and Gym equipment.
Hi I’m Jo. Mum to three amazing Children. Whilst all 3 of my children are sporty, my middle child Freya is an Elite Gymnast which means I have been immersed in the world of Gymnastics for some years,
I work full time as a medical representative and live on the South Coast. As a family we lead a busy life of competitions, training and sports camps. Setting up my own business has been an ambition for a long time. Finally the idea, opportunity and market arrived and I set up Elite Tracks in august 2018 with the help of my business partner Andy.
Frequently Asked Questions
What pressure should I use?
This depends on the product, sports type, skill level and weight of the users. Always use enough pressure not to bottom out and refill before every new training session. Check our user manual for recommended pressure levels.
Is there a chance of damaging an AirTrack by over pressurising it?
No, the pressure needed to damage an Airtrack cannot be reached with the standard blowers we supply.
What is the lifespan of your products?
Obviously this will depend on how, and in what frequency the products are used. A lifespan of more than 5 years if the track is looked after and stored correctly
What guarantees do you give on your products?
We give 1 years manufacturing guarantee on our products.
What is the difference between these AirTracks and others on the market?
1)The Air tracks from Elite Tracks Uk Ltd are manufactured to be airtight. So once blown up should only need a top up every now and again depending on temperature, use, storage etc. A small hand- blower is enough to inflate all of our products and Air tracks within 4 minutes. we use 0High grade extra 0.9mm matt PVC finish and the seems are hand finished. our products are tested extensively in the factory before being packaged.
2) Our tracks are made with a minimum 15cm thickness unlike the 10cm tracks on the market these will be suitable for all ages and sizes of users without any impact to the ground! reducing impact on growing joints
How much do your mats weigh?
Each size track obviously weighs differently. the biggest tracks we sell at 6m x 2m x 15cm are 20kg. The 3m tracks are 12kg

We use a material called Double Wall Fabric (DWF) consisting of 2 layers of coated vinyl with thousands of threads connecting the two layers (1000 per M2).
