Construction & Materials

Eight the Pod
Helix Midnight
Airflow Top Layer, Supportive Air Technology, FlexSpring technology core, Durable Premium Base
Helix Two Touch Design, Memory Plus Foam, High-Grade Polyfoam, Wrapped Coils, DuraDense Foam.
The Pod has a soft premium knit cover with enhanced breathability.
Helix Two Touch Design. Each mattress comes with a top cover layer with stretch and a soft touch as well as a lower cover layer for airflow and breathability. Top cover - 100% soft polyester. Lower cover - Jersey knit fabric with woven fire barrier. Upgrade to ultra cool knit cover for cooler nights (available at checkout). This Ultra-Cool Cover is designed using phase change material to keep your body cool when you sleep. Simply zip on the Ultra-Cool Cover in place of your standard cover for quick and easy use.
The only smart mattress with advanced cooling and heating technology designed to help you fall asleep faster and keep you asleep.
Uniquely pressure relieving, we use Memory Plus Foam - a special Helix blend.
Dual-Zone Cooling & Heating. Independently set each side of the bed to anywhere between 55°F-110°F. Schedule on and off times from the Eight Sleep app. Advanced Sleep Tracking. Individual sleep tracking on each bed side, supporting two sleepers. Metrics include sleep stages, sleep time, toss and turns, and more.
Specially designed using a Memory Plus Foam pressure relief layer to cushion your pressure points as a side sleeper. Density of the top and middle layers optimized to give you the right amount of support based on your body type. High-Grade Polyfoam. Providing ergonomic support and cushioning, the transition layer has a medium IFD to match your body type. Wrapped Coils. Hundreds of individual coils help to cradle your body while also limiting motion transfer. Edge Support. Each mattress has an individually wrapped spring unit with a reinforced perimeter. This means your mattress will reduce that roll-off feeling and will keep its shape more while sitting on the edge of the bed. Our technology is proven to be substantially better than all foam options.
