Description

Our solid, one-piece extruded hoops provide unbeatable durability and are thicker than any other hoop you can buy! The unique reinforcement ensures structural integrity, even after years of routine use. Its fused design is safer than standard stapled hoops and will last for years.

Safe and Durable Design

Traditional hoops are typically held together by staples that are then covered with labels. However, after a lot of use, those labels tend to wear off and the staples can come loose, which means the hoops break and have a higher change of cutting or scratching students. DuraHoop’s fused design ensures they will not come apart and eliminate sharp staples!

It’s not just the fused design that ensures long-lasting use. The thickness and heaviness of these hoops makes them kink-proof and unable to bend. A cross design on the inside helps to make this the strongest hoop you’ll find on the market, able to hold up to rough institutional use for many years. Beginners will appreciate the heaviness of the interior support, as it makes the hoop move more slowly to aid in teaching the correct movements.

A Fun, Versatile Workout

Kids using the hoop will get a great workout without even knowing it! While hooping, they will engage a wide variety of muscles, including abs, obliques, and back muscles. Strengthening these muscle groups is extremely important for kids, as it provides a stable base for gross and fine motor skills. Hooping also raises their heart rate to provide an aerobic workout.

There are also many games that incorporate hoops. You might set up a version of musical chairs where the kids jump into a hoop rather than sitting down. The hoops can be placed closer or farther away to adjust the level of difficulty.

Multiple Sizes and Colors

DuraHoop™ Revolution Hoops are available in 3 sizes, the smallest of which is great for younger students and difficult target games, while the largest of which is great for older students and easier target games. Rainbow® Sets allow teachers to easily separate their students into groups for team or relay activities by color. The bright Screamin’ Orange® Sets are easily visible for target games inside and out.

DuraHoop™ Skinny Hoops

Just as thick as our DuraHoop™, with a 50% smaller diameter!

These easier-to-handle, light hula hoops are the perfect option for your youngest students! A fused design makes them safer and more durable than traditional hoops—without the weight!

Thinner and Lighter

While these hoops feature the same 2.3 mm wall thickness as our standard DuraHoop™, they are only half as thick! This makes them not only the skinniest, but also the lightest hoop we offer. DuraHoop™ Skinny is less intimidating for beginners or a great challenge for older students who have mastered standard hooping and want to learn more advanced hoop tricks, like catching them in the air or spinning them around the arm. In fact, at .3 lb each (compared to 1 lb for most hoops), these hoops are light enough that they can even be spun around a finger!

Tough and Safe

Just because they are skinnier doesn’t mean they are less durable! These feature the same 2.3 mm wall thickness as our other DuraHoop™ Hoops, so they are designed to stand up to long periods of institutional use.

A fused design adds to Skinny’s durability. Even if they get stepped on, they will never kink or break due to their fused (not stapled) design.

No staples also keeps students safer. Stapled hoops often come loose or apart, exposing a sharp point that can easily injury students. We completely eliminated that with a fused connection point.

Various Sizes and Colors

Vibrant Rainbow® colors easily organize relay races and activities. Adding a pop of color also pumps up the fun and allows younger students to pick their favorite. Multiple sizes accommodate a variety of ages and activities so everyone is involved and students never get tired of using them!

The hoops have been used for a variety of activities, some gentle, some rather harsh and there's no evidence of bending at all. Kids enjoy the colours too.

I would love to give these hoops a higher rating, but just after a few uses they break. Our school will be looking for a different vendor.

Sport Tips

Which hoop is right for me?

Differences in the plastic tubing used to make the hoop cause differences in the hoop's durability. The thicker the wall of tubing, the stronger and more resistant to kinking and deformation the hoop will be.

Choose the right hoop for you! Our DuraHoop™ family includes 5 unique and durable hoops. To determine which hoop is the right for you, refer to the information provided on individual wall thickness and construction.
