The Propel Mattress comes in one firmness, which comes in at 6 on the 10-point firmness scale. This medium-firm feel falls into the range that most sleepers tend to prefer.
A cover of proprietary Upcycle fabric encases the mattress. This material is engineered to convert the sleeper’s heat into far infrared rays and reflect them back towards the body, which is thought to stimulate blood flow and promote quality sleep.
The comfort system consists of two distinct layers: a 1.5-inch layer of proprietary CopperFlex polyfoam and a 2-inch layer of Energex polyfoam. Both materials aim to combine the contouring and pressure relief of memory foam with the responsiveness of latex. The CopperFlex layer also has infusions of copper and a phase change molecule. Copper is antimicrobial, and its high conductivity helps pull excess heat away from the sleeper’s body. The phase change molecule is designed to keep the sleeper’s skin temperature at 88 degrees.
A 1-inch transition layer of memory foam gives deep compression support, while a gel infusion helps enhance the mattress’s cooling. The mattress core is made up of 6 inches of coils, which give the bed bounce while allowing ample air circulation. Each coil is individually encased for extra motion isolation. Finally, a 1-inch layer of polyfoam serves as a base for the coils.
The Propel Mattress is constructed of five layers. Both comfort layers are polyfoam. The transition layer uses memory foam. Pocketed coils and a final layer of polyfoam combine to form the support core.

The Propel Mattress’s two polyfoam comfort layers let a side sleeper’s hips and shoulders sink in while redistributing their body weight to reduce pressure buildup in these key areas. Its memory foam transition layer gives deep compression support and reduces the likelihood that a side sleeper’s curves will press against the firmer mattress core.
Side sleepers from all weight groups should enjoy a good combination of cradling and support. This balance will likely be best for those who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds. The Propel’s medium-firm feel may be slightly firmer than ideal for side sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds. While these individuals should get plenty of support, they might not sink in enough to enjoy as much pressure relief as heavier individuals. Side sleepers who weigh over 230 pounds could sink in a little too deeply, which may make it harder to maintain optimal spinal alignment.
Regardless of their weight, the Propel Mattress should be supportive enough for most back sleepers. The polyfoam comfort layers have enough give to let the hips sink in for added comfort, while the memory foam transition layer and coil core limit excessive sinkage.
Back sleepers who weigh under 130 pounds exert less force on the mattress, but they should still sink in enough for some cushioning. Those who weigh over 130 pounds will sink in a little more deeply. However, the memory foam transition layer and coil core should be supportive enough to limit sagging and promote good spinal alignment.
Extra weight around a stomach sleeper’s hips and belly can drag their midsection too deeply into the mattress and put a strain on their spine. Since many individuals carry much of their weight near their middle, this is a common issue.
The Propel’s two-layer comfort system gives cushioning, which many stomach sleepers will enjoy. While the memory foam transition layer and the coil core give support, the mattress’s medium-firm feel may allow more midsection sagging than ideal for some heavier stomach sleepers. The hips of individuals who weigh more than 130 pounds may dip into the mattress and make it difficult to maintain proper spinal alignment. However, stomach sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds should get the support they need to keep their spines well aligned.
