The travel hoop separates into 4 segments that make it easy to pack and carry. If you’ve ever tried traveling via plane or public transportation then you know how difficult it can be to take your hoop with you. Now, with our travel hoop you can make it easy!
Since this hoop has extra connectors and hardware, we only offer it in the lighter 3/4″ tubing to keep it from getting too heavy.

How to size your hoop
Hoopers come in all sizes and are all so very unique. Getting a proper hoop fit can really help you with the learning curve. Once you get hooping you will see that there are different sized hoops for different types of moves, dances, and forms of expression. At first it can be so confusing. I can help you to shed some light on finding a great hoop for your individual hoop journey.
In general, the smaller and lighter the hoop the more activity and movement it will take to keep the hoop in flow and moving in a controlled fashion. If your hoop is super small and light it will rotate super fast. The larger and heavier hoops are much easier to hoop with for adults, especially for beginners. The rotation is slow enough for our bodies to get in sync with the rhythm of the hoop as it spins around your body. The hoop has a rhythm of its own so anyone can hoop, even if you consider yourself to have little rhythm. You want to follow the rhythm of the hoop as it twirls around you, responding to it in order to keep it in flow.
We must factor in each unique body type and shape as well as your style (or future style) that can come into play once you get a little flight time under your belt. (Flight time is in reference to how long you have been hooping). Are you thin and tall? Not so tall and not so thin? I can help to narrow down your choices.
Measuring from the floor to the belly button is a great place to begin. You want this to be a rough starting point. We can subtract two inches from this measurement if you are of average size and build and consider yourself somewhat active. If you feel you have a little (or a lot) more to love hanging around your body, let’s add 2-4 inches – but be sure to not go too far above the chest. If you are less than average build or a little shorter you can begin at the belly button and subtract inches for much shorter than average or super thin body. If you are less tall but still have some love to share on ya, then go ahead and add an inch or two back on to the size.
