Portable Basketball Hoops
A portable basketball hoop has a large plastic base with wheels for rolling, but don’t be fooled by the name. These types of goals often remain stationary through their lifetime. Because portable hoops are weighted by either sand or water inside the plastic base, they do not require in-ground installation. However, they do require around 90 minutes of assembly. These bases cannot bear the same amount of weight as an in-ground goal, making them unable to uphold a glass backboard and decreasing their stability during rough play…read more.
Benefits of Portable Basketball Goals
Unlike traditional portable basketball goal designs where the main pole of the goal connects to the plastic base, the GoTek pole connects directly to a steel frame that sits under the entire base. These steel-on-steel connections create a much stronger frame that won’t fail over time like the competition.
Sitting on top of the Stabili-Frame is a large blow molded base which holds more than 200+ pounds of water. The unique shape of this base is designed to accommodate easier filling and moving. Unlike the counter-balanced design found in most portable basketball goals, our design allows the goal to stand upright, even when there’s no weight in the base. Other goals will tip over the second the weight is removed.
Unlike most portable goals that are cumbersome and difficult to move, the ErgoMove design of NXT and GoTek goals mimics the weight-distribution of a wheel-barrow, displacing the majority of the weight to the wheels, so you can easily execute a lift-and-roll motion. It also features an anchor at the back of the base which prevents it from tipping backward while being moved.
Unlike traditional backboards that are framed by a plastic or metal edge, GoTek basketball goals feature an Infinity Edge Backboard, a technique that folds the edges of the material backward, creating a stronger face for superior rebound. This design gives the backboard increased strength and rigidity – greatly reducing “dead” spots in the backboard that are common among portable hoops.
With all of these exclusive design features, the Goaliath GoTek truly offers the best performance in portable basketball hoops.For those considering an alternative style of hoop, don't forget to check out our full line of basketball goals.
