The Spin Bridge (スピンブリッジ) is an obstacle used in SASUKE 27 in the First Stage, positioned after the Soritatsu Kabe. The obstacle is a version of the Cannonball used in the VIKING tournaments, where the competitor has to run across four spheres, which spin when touched. The obstacle did small damage for its debut, eliminating previous finalists All-Star Yamamoto Shingo and veteran Takahashi Kenji. It should also be noted that this obstacle is infamous for dislocating Kanno Hitoshi's shoulder and forcing him to withdraw after the Slider Drop in Stage 2.

In SASUKE 28, it returned and was placed in the third position just after the Rolling Escargot. It proved to be much more brutal than in SASUKE 27, as it took out numerous competitors (including SASUKE 24 finalists Li En Zhi and Hashimoto Kouji, and SASUKE All-Stars Yamamoto Shingo (for a second straight tournament) and Akiyama Kazuhiko). Gondou Hiroyuki was the first to beat it that day. It was replaced by the Hedgehog in SASUKE 29.

This obstacle was also used as the seventh obstacle in Stage One on American Ninja Warrior 4 to American Ninja Warrior 6. On American Ninja Warrior 4, it eliminated David Campbell and Tim Shieff. After two seasons hiatus, this obstacle returned on American Ninja Warrior 9, as the third obstacle in San Antonio. However, the obstacle was modified, with the second and fourth sphere were lifted slightly, made it harder to maintain the step and balance.
