Construction & Materials

Eight the Pod
Airflow Top Layer, Supportive Air Technology, FlexSpring technology core, Durable Premium Base
Top Layer: 2" Hyper-Elastic Polymer™ material in Smart Comfort Grid™ Non-toxic polyethylene copolymer powder coating, Middle Layer: 3.5" 1.8 lbs density polyurethane foam, Base Layer: 4" 2.0 lbs density polyurethane foam
The Pod has a soft premium knit cover with enhanced breathability.
NEW SoftFlex Wave Knit : 29% Viscose, 67% Polyester, 4% Lycra (all +/- 5%). A custom, super-soft knit with tons of stretch so it can flex with both your movement and the Grid's. Its breathable material is also the perfect complement to the Grid's 1,800+ air channels.
The only smart mattress with advanced cooling and heating technology designed to help you fall asleep faster and keep you asleep.
Ventilation is the key to sleeping just right - not too hot, and not too cold. Purple achieves the ultimate sleep comfortability by combining a totally new material with a totally unique design. Purple remains temperature-neutral so you don't sleep hot and sweaty at night Purple's column design allows air to flow freely, preventing moisture trapping, extending the life of the mattress, and providing cleaner, more comfortable sleep. Thanks to the free air flow design and patented polymer materials, Purple naturally sleeps much cooler than memory foam, latex, and other mattress technology.
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.
A revolutionary mattress designed for just about everyone. It's designed to not only help you get better sleep, but to soothe joints, release pressure on the hips and shoulders, and support the neck and back. It's designed to make bedtime the highlight of your day! The Hyper-Elastic Polymer™ Purple is a pressure-releasing material. This material is organized in a grid formation, which creates walls that can support or fold, depending on how much pressure it receives. It's durable enough to last decades so you won't develop a body impression. And it buckles under specific pressure, which provides excellent motion isolation so you don't feel someone else move in the bed.
