The new Spartan mattress from Brooklyn Bedding is a luxury performance mattress that utilizes some of the best foams, fabrics and coils to create a sleeping surface that provides maximum contouring, support and recovery. This mattress sets itself apart from the rest of the hybrid mattress pack incorporating a cover made with Nanobionic technology. As I understand it, this is similar to Celliant technology. Both are registered with the FDA and can make a claim that they turn body heat into waves of energy to promote faster recovery and better sleep. Since this technology is part of the mattress, you reap the benefits night after night without having to think about it.
The Spartan is quite a bit higher than many of its hybrid competitors at $1,999 before discounts, but the quality is apparent throughout.
Overview of the Spartan Mattress
Here’s a quick video overview of some of the main benefits of this mattress. It has a distinct looking cover with handles along the sides.
Unboxing the Spartan Mattress
Your Spartan mattress will arrive in a box like the one below. It is made by Brooklyn Bedding, an Arizona mattress manufacturer.
As you can see below, the mattress comes roll packed. It requires heavy machinery to roll a mattress this tight.
This is the mattress out of the box but still in the packaging. You can see where the coils are towards the bottom. These will spring to life quickly.
The picture below was taken just minutes after opening the mattress. It is basically ready to sleep on. The wrinkles around the edges will go away and of course you won’t see them with sheets over the mattress. There is some smell to this mattress but not too bad.

My Spartan Mattress Findings
Right out of the box you will notice the distinct look of the matttress. Don’t let the dark color discourage you from purchasing. After you put a mattress protector over it, you won’t see the dark color through the sheets. Also, you will still get the benefits of the Nanobionic fabric through the mattress protector and sheets.
Here you can see the handles stitched into the side if you would like to rotate the mattress. I recommend rotating every other month, especially if you sleep with a partner with that is signficiantly heavier or lighter than you.
Here’s a pic of the cover. The fabric has some stretch to it so you can sink into the layers of foam.
Below is my 14 lb. bowling ball on the mattress to illustrate sinkage. There is a good amount of sink with this mattress which makes it great for side sleeping.
Here you can see how the foam layers start to sink with the bowling ball.
This mattress will have bounce given it has a coil system but they are pocket coils so they don’t transfer motion. Also, the top layers of foam absorb most of the impact when dropping my bowling ball.
In the video below you can see in more detail how each layer reacts. What surprised me was that the foam is quick to recover but still feels like a denser foam. When I laid on the mattress I had really good contouring.
My Brooklyn Bedding Spartan Mattress Recommendation
The Spartan mattress sets itself apart from the pack of other performance mattresses in that it is able to incorporate all the latest foam and fabric technology to create a great feel. Aside from the benefits you get from the Nanobionic technology, it just feels like a well-made mattress. If you want to get the contouring of a dense foam with less heat retention and much more responsiveness, this mattress is a great choice. You will sink into this mattress a bit and you get a nice cradling sensation that is perfect for side sleepers. While you certainly pay a perimium, this mattress should have a good lifespan and in my opinion is a solid investment.
