We custom tape every high performance hoop, contact us to design yours. Our favourite way to tape these is with SOLID SPARKLE (with inside grip) for a sleek look, smooth feeling, and high-impact shine. The most popular colours for these hoops are the colour changing tapes and the mirror tapes – especially gold and purple.
We use high density polyethylene (HDPE) tubing for these hoops (5/8″ ID, 3/4″OD), they are the thickness of your thumb. This tubing is light and responsive, just like the more common polypropylene, and it’s less likely to shatter in cold temperatures. We can only tell the difference between hdpe and polypro when we’re using them side-by-side, the hdpe has a slightly more ‘solid’ feel and the polypro feels slightly more ‘springy’. We do have polypro available upon request
Both hdpe and polypro will keep their stiffness when hanging out on hot sandy beaches. But please don’t leave them in hot hot cars, they will warp. When the tape and connectors are removed, hdpe is #2 recyclable and polypro is #5 recyclable.
Each hoop has a push button connection and can be gently coiled into a smaller circle, if you need to fit it into a suitcase. If your hoop is shipped to you, it will arrive coiled. Add patience to these instructions and you will be able to shape it into a perfect circle.
