Now available in original and lightweight tubing.
Our collapsible hoops fold to the size of a yoga mat and pop open with a shake! These hoops are 4 pieces connected with a bungee cord, with no push buttons or pieces to lose. Their portable nature makes them great for traveling – whether to a festival, the gym, a tropical paradise, or to a backyard on the other side of town. These hoops are also good for keeping a low-profile in the urban jungle; they’re easy to conceal and they nuzzle up against your back as you move between hoop sessions in the park and grocery store lineups.
The LIGHTWEIGHT version uses a tubing that’s 30% lighter than the Classic Travel Hoops, but with the same surface area. This light weight translates to more comfortable hand hooping and ease in folds, tosses, and isolations. These hoops have smoother, tighter joints than our classic design, so they stay together even during the most intense knee-hooping, but may take a little longer to open and close. Hoopers who are middle-aged or plus-sized will find the original “heavy” weight easier to use.
Bonus! This tubing is translucent, so if you choose the ‘Naked’ or ‘Just some grip’ taping options, you can put glow sticks into the hoop to light up the night at festivals!
The classic version uses a heavy tubing that’s excellent for beginners. It’s the closest in weight to the “160psi” rating that you’ll find on US tubing sites, but it’s a little skinnier so it’s easier to grip. This version also opens and closes quickly, it will POP into shape with a quick shake. This one needs large grip or Full Sparkle! tape.
These hoops are available in two diameters – 42″ and 38″. Bigger hoops are easier to use on the waist, and smaller hoops are easier to use in the hand. Most hoopers start with 42″ Beginner. You may prefer the 38″ Speedy hoop if you are under 5’3″, or slender and under 5’8″, or if you like to move fast. If you are over 6′, or looking for a very relaxed hooping experience, consider the BIG Travel Hoops.
