GC55-LG Overview

The Ironclad Gamechanger GC55-LG basketball system is also a great choice for an entry level, affordable goal. Perfect for driveways, this unit incorporates the most important basic features customers ask for without adding to the overall cost for "bells & whistles."

The large one piece 5" bolt down post gives stability, ease of installation and allows the goal to easily be relocated if you sell your home. The rim height is easy to adjust with the simple crank actuator on the back side of the post. The unit includes a 60" wide tempered glass backboard that looks great in any driveway and is big enough to handle any angle bank shot. Pole padding and backboard pads are included standard for safety. And as with all Ironclad basketball systems, it is covered by a Lifetime Limited Warranty.

Easy Adjustment: Adjustable from 10' down to 7 1/2' with crank actuator.
Tempered Glass Backboard: 36”x60”x5/16”
30" Offset from Backboard to Post: Helps avoid player contact with the post without extending too far into driveway.
Heavy Duty Post: 5”x5” 12 gauge square one piece pole is extra rigid. Don't settle for flimsy multi piece poles.
Breakaway Rim & Net: Gymnasium quality breakaway rim and net.
Bolt-down Installation: Installation is easy with bolt-down post design. Allows easy goal relocation if you move.
Powder Coat Protection: Each unit has black powder coat paint for a superior weather resistance.

Ironclad Goal Features

Ironclad's founders are responsible for the invention of some of the most recognized and influential aspects of the adjustable basketball goal: Most notably, the spring assist used to make basketball goals crank upward as easily as downward. This invention has been imitated by many companies over the years, but never truly duplicated.



  • Crank Adjustable

    Easy Crank Adjustment

    • Easy reach handle adjusts rim height anywhere from 10’ down to 5’ (7.5' on GC models)– great for any age
    • Turn crank clockwise to raise, counterclockwise to lower
    • Easy read rim height indicator, simply stop cranking when you reach correct rim height
    • Removable handle prevents unwanted adjustment

Ironclad GC55-LG Reviews


Would Highly Recommend
May 18 2017

Couldn't have been more pleased with my purchase. This was the best value I found after months of internet research. Goal was delivered timely, instructions were easy to follow. I was wanting a goal my wife could adjust easily and this one definitely does, I have no doubt that as soon as my boys can reach it they'll be able to adjust. I did the concrete and prep work with father in law and then it took three adults to get the backboard up -- exactly as instructions indicate. I've been playing almost every day, would highly recommend.


amazing for the price

This hoop is amazing for the price! I wanted a 60” backboard but not the flimsy 4x4 pole. Everything bigger was over 1,000 dollars. I found this one and me and my son Love it!! No wobble! But with 800 pounds of concrete it shouldn’t! Awesome hoop and easy to install!


perfect Customer Service

Atomic Sports executed perfect Customer Service when the Shipping/Freight company (to no fault of Atomic Sports) delayed shipment/delivery of my sons basketball hoop, and ensured that I was taken care of, all the while assisting with delivery of my sons basketball hoop. My son and I are extremely satisfied with the purchase, and so are my sons friends and neighbors.
