Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

The iGel Pegasus Gold was one of the most desirable mattresses in the Bensons for Beds lineup for a number of years. In recent months, the Pegasus has been discontinued in line with a refresh to the entire mattress collection within the iGel segment. Since then however, there has been the introduction of a new mattress, the iGel Advance 2000, a fantastic alternative to the Pegasus that features much of the same fantastic build quality and suitability.

Key Performance Indicators KPI question mark

Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews. For example, a firm pocket spring support layer is more breathable and offers better back support but may prove unsuitable for side sleepers, the reverse is true for a soft-medium tension reflex foam support layer. This is one of 100+ datapoints considered when generating the below ratings.

Suitability

*Assuming average weight, suitability will vary dependant on body type, use the quiz above for a more tailored guide.
  • Back Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • The amount of support offered from a mattress will vary depending on the firmness of the tension and the type of support layer used. Based on a person of average build.
  • Side Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • If you sleep on your side you typically need a supportive tension that is not too firm, nor too soft. This is because your hips and shoulders need adequate sinkage.
  • Stomach Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Stomach sleepers need a reasonable amount of tension in the base support layer to adequately offer body contouring and help prevent aches and pains. Results will vary based on your build.

Performance

  • Breathability
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Mattresses that feature breathable materials help promote airflow and keep you cool making for a more hygienic night's sleep.
  • Turning on mattress
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Certain materials like memory foam can make it difficult to move about on the mattress while you toss and turn. Same too for pillow tops which can create a cloud like sensation which can make manoeuvrability challenging.
  • Stability
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Depending on the type of support layer in place can have an impact on stability, edge to edge support and roll together prevention. Pocket springs of a firmer tension will have better stability than open coil soft tension, for example.

Ease of Use

  • Turning handles
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Mattresses typically need to be rotated frequently and having turning handles can be massively beneficial, particularly in larger sizes which can become fairly heavy.

Odour

  • Initial Odour
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Materials in mattresses, particularly memory foam and rolled bed-in-a-box mattresses can have an initial odour, this is typically short term and reduces considerably within 24 hours.
  • Long Standing Odour
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Certain materials inside different mattresses can produce a small odour. Typically this is short term rather than long standing but there are minor exceptions.

Brand Rating

  • Overall Brand Rating
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • This is based on community driven customer reviews tied to product reviews and grouped together at a brand level to produce a score.

What Makes The iGel Pegasus Mattress Gold Great?

iGel™ temperature-regulating mattress with Graphene technology

iGel is a fairly new material for use in mattresses, surpassing memory foam in temperature regulation while providing many of the same qualities that make it a great choice for those looking for a premium comfort layer.Gels temperature regulating properties are not the only stand out feature, the popular comfort layer also has great temperature regulation and is naturally hypoallergenic.

Firmness rating: Firm

When we fall asleep, our muscles relax and what that does is it allows our body to decompress. But when we're sleeping on a too soft mattress, the muscles don't have enough support and they're not getting the proper relaxation.The benefits of a firm mattress are that you're going to sleep more soundly,  your back pain is going to be relieved and you're going to have less muscle aches and pains.

Free full 10-year guarantee

The average mattress lifespan is 7 years. The average guarantee is normally 1 year. These 2 numbers often do not get close to each other, however, this mattress comes with an amazing 10 year guarantee that should last the entire lifetime of the mattress protecting you from any problems that would crop up in that period.

Exclusive for Bensons for Beds

This is part of a wider range of mattresses made exclusively for Bensons for Beds meaning that you are not going to be able to find them elsewhere at present. We do have a partnership with Bensons for Beds that may see unique offers from time to time that may be exclusive to us.

2000 pocket springs encased in foam for premium support

Typically, the more springs the better. The average mattress has around 1000 springs and so anything more than that is considered good. The firmness/tension of a mattress is also not dictated by the amount of springs and so you do not need to worry about the firmness being unsuitable when it comes to spring count. Simply the more springs, the better the mattress can contour to your body. 2000 springs is considered great.

5cm of iGel™ Advance beaded gel for pressure relief, helping relieve aches and pains

iGel is a fairly new material for use in mattresses, surpassing memory foam in temperature regulation while providing many of the same qualities that make it a great choice for those looking for a premium comfort layer

iGel™ Graphene technology provides 7 times better heat transfer

iGel is a fairly new material for use in mattresses, surpassing memory foam in temperature regulation while providing many of the same qualities that make it a great choice for those looking for a premium comfort layer.Gels temperature regulating properties are not the only stand out feature, the popular comfort layer also has great temperature regulation and is naturally hypoallergenic.

FreshNow™ moisture wicking for an all-night fresher feel

FreshNow™ is a series of new covers that feature moisture wicking technology that are available in a wide array of different styles and colours.

AdvantEdge™ - provides premium edge support

Surrounding the mattress is what has been aptly dubbed the AdvantEdge™ foam. This works along side the mattresses springs to offer far better edge to edge support over traditional mattresses with standard rod edge support. The main benefit of this product means that roll-together is prevented alongside roll-off providing an even and measured experience no matter which point of the mattress you are sleeping on.

Vivatex™ safe, soft and greener fillings & fabric

Vivatex™ is used in this mattresses fillings and fabrics and provides a safe hypoallergenic sleep that will be both soft and comfortable while reducing the chance of any additional allergies.

Antibacterial and hypoallergenic

This means that the mattress will be unlikely to cause irritation or allergies when in use due to the materials used in the make-up of the mattress.

Contains second life textiles and 100% recycled PET

Recycling is at the forefront of this mattress and the textiles employed in the comfort layer and cover of the product, as such the materials used include those that have already had a previously life as another product. Common examples include water bottles and clothing that are repurposed and reworked to become something new that is both soft and durable.

Overall greener, safer, chemical free formula

Attention to detail has been at the forefront of many light facelifts within the mattress industry to date, and one of these comes in the form of new, green initiatives whereby the manufacturer has been able to create the same sleep experience in a safer and more chemical free manner, giving the consumer a greener mattress as a result.

Easy care non-turn mattress, rotate occasionally

Non turn mattresses basically mean that the mattress is one sided, this means that the fillings and topper are only on one side so make sure when you first receive the mattress that you put the comfortable side on top otherwise you will have a very uncomfortable sleep. Take note however, a non-turn mattress should still be rotated frequently to prevent the common dip that you may otherwise get from sleeping in the same position over time.

Handles on all sides to aid rotation

Rotating a mattress can actually be a bit of a pain without help and support. That's why we've included some handy-handles to make the job a little easier. Mattresses average around 35-40kg, without handles you sort of have to do that weird third-arm with your head thing that is both unflattering and fairly useless. Trust us, get handles.

Euro Quilted top with attractive pattern design in 6 colourways

Unique to the iGel range comes the ability to have different designs and colour options for your mattress. I'm a big fan of iGel and find their mattresses to always be of high quality, however, your mattress will be covered by sheets and covers, my advice is to buy whichever has a earliest delivery lead time.

Mattress height: 27cm

27cm is quite deep for a mattress and comes with enough depth to feature many good quality components and comfort layers necessary to get a good nights sleep
