Experience Unrivaled Strength with the Goalrilla DC72/E1 Basketball Hoop

Innovative Direct Connect Technology: Setting a new standard in hoop design, the DC72/E1 features our exclusive Direct Connect Technology. Unlike typical hoops, vertical forces during play are channeled directly to a sturdy 4-inch steel beam, sparing the backboard from stress. This unique construction allows for unparalleled durability and longevity.

Patented Rim Design for Maximum Support: The DC72/E1 boasts a patented rim design, anchored firmly to the hoop's steel structure. This allows it to withstand over twice the force compared to rims reliant on glass backboards. When players dunk, the energy is absorbed by the steel, not the glass, enabling the hoop to endure up to one ton of pressure.

Dual Welded Board Arms for Enhanced Stability: Our hoop features dual welded board arms, offering double the strength of standard unsupported arms. Both the upper and lower arms are reinforced with two steel blocks, significantly reducing vibration and bolstering structural integrity. This design makes the DC72E1 one of the toughest hoops on the market.

Rugged Steel Build with Superior Protection: Goalrilla hoops are synonymous with strength, and the DC72/E1 is no exception. Constructed with rugged steel throughout, it stands up to any challenge. To ensure lasting performance and appearance, the hoop is coated in DuPont® Powder Coating, providing ultimate protection against rust and UV damage.

Goalrilla Tough for Intense Play: Engineered for the most brutal and intense basketball sessions, the DC72/E1 is more than just a hoop – it's a testament to unparalleled toughness and reliability. Whether you're practicing dunks or hosting competitive games, this hoop is built to handle it all.

Elevate your basketball experience with the Goalrilla DC72/E1 – where durability, technology, and professional play converge!


The basketball hoop’s anchor is installed in concrete but gives you the option to unbolt the hoop if you need to move homes. The in-ground anchor is cured in concrete providing strength and stability. One major factor that will determine your installation location and which hoop you’d like to own is the overhang. Use the overhang chart to select the best position to install your hoop.
