This is our collection of Untaped Polypro Hoops, an untaped polypro hula hoop is simply a hoop that is bare, or without tape. It is a hoop that is made from raw polypro tubing with no decoration or tapes applied to it. It is the simplest of hoops you can find as well as the most affordable hula hoop category on our site, not counting all our hoops that are on sale or have been discounted.

Colored Polypro Hoops
Our listing for colored polypro hoops is pretty much what it sounds like, it is a product offering where you can order a bare polypro hoop in one of our 37 different color choices.
not clothed or covered. has no decoration or tape applied."the hula hoop she was using was totally bare"
When we get our tubing extruded it goes through a big machine that adds color pigment to clear tubing. Each time we run a color the machine needs to be taken apart and thoroughly cleaned. Instead of cleaning the machine we just add the next color we want and continue running tubing through it. What happens is that the tubing uses up the last bit of pigment of the previous color and starts to pick up the new color. This process usually uses around 100' - 200' of tubing and what comes out is always super unique and one of a kind never to be repeated.
The result is our Collectors Edition - Hoops that are truly unique with colors that may never be seen again!
Size Changing Hula Hoop
This hoop is what we call the Grow With Your Flow, it is a hoop that can convert into 4-8 different sizes giving you the ability to always challenge yourself and not have to buy multiple hoop sizes, you can just get one that Grows With Your Flow!
In the world of flow and circus arts isolation is a term used to describe the act of manipulating and object in space so that it gives the illusion that the object is hovering and in a fixed position while it is you who is moving around the object. Usually it is the other way around, you move an object around yourself, much like when you are hula hooping on your waste.
Here's a video with one of our favorite isolation artists, Dustin Hubel
Mini Hoops & Twins
Twins or doubles are a term used to describe the act of using two hoops at the same time.
