We can see a lot of different styles of hula hoops in market ,but sometimes ,we do not know which style of hula hoop to buy ?
Here we will give a basic introduction of some hot selling hula hoops in past years .
Weighted hula hoop :
Weighted hula hoops is made of stainless tube or the steel tube + NBR foam ,so sometimes we also call it adjustable weighted hula hoops ,weighted hula hoop generally speaking have soft foam padded 6 section detachable adjustable weighted hula hoop and also 8 section detachable adjustable weighted hula hoop ,and as per previous customer repeat order details ,seems 8 section detachable adjustable weighted hula hoops are more popular ,below is the pictures of the 6 section weighted hula hoop as well as 8 section adjustable hula hoops.
As we can see the weighted hula hoops have 6 sections or 8 sections and the diameter is around
Generally speaking ,weighted hula hoops has 1kg ,1.2kg as well as 1.5kg style ,and normal weight is 1kg ,if want the hula hoop to be heavier ,we can insert some steel inside it or some rice etc small accessories inside the tube to make it heavier and then use the plug below to insert into the tube and lock it
And the weighted hula hoops ,the foam surface will also have some different shapes ,some is smooth style ,some is wavy style hula hoops and also some is textured style foam hula hoops .Foam padded plastic hula hoops :
Plastic hula hoops the surface is also NBR foam but the tube is PP plastic tube ,compare with steel tube /stainless tube ,plastic tube is not so hard when we do hula hoop workout/hula hoop exercises ,and we can find a lot of different styles of plastic tube hula hoops ,such as 600g style ,850g style ,900g style , 1kg standard plastic hula hoops as well as 1.2kg plastic hula hoops .
So why the plastic hula hoops have different weight range ?
1: Foam thickness ,some hula hoops weight is thin and some foam is thick enough and obviously ,the thicker the foam is,the better the hula hoops will be ,since thicker foam will be more comfortable when we do hula hoop exercises .
2: Tube material ,even all hula hoop tube is made of plastic ,but they indeed have some difference ,some tube is durable and thicker and some is not so heavy and strong ,so the heavier/durable the tube is ,the better the hula hoop will be ,so generally speaking ,hula hoops if the total weight is less than 1kg ,it means the hula hoop tube is not so durable .
As for shape ,the plastic hula hoops also have wavy hula hoop ,smooth style hula hoops, textured styles hula hoop ring and also 6 section detachable style and 8 section adjustable hula hoop .So how to check whether the hula hoops are of high quality or low quality ?
Step 1 : After assemble the hula hoop ,press the hula hoop to check whether the hula hoop is of good shape or de-shaped –this method is to test whether the tube is strong enough and durable .
Step 2 :Press the NBR foam to see whether the foam after pressing will back to normal soon and whether the foam is soft or hard –this is used to test the foam thickness /elasticity as well as the hardness .
Generally speaking ,if the foam is too soft and after press can not back to normal easily ,will be easily to be damaged during hula hoop exercises and then it will bring negative feedback from customer .
So we need to get the thick hard foam and not soft thin NBR foam hula hoops .
Step 3 : Throw the hula hoop hard on the floor to see whether it can jump high – this is a test to check whether the hula hoop durable and whether it is of high elasticity as well as whether the joints of each section is good and strong .
Step 4 : Use tape to stick on the logo of the hula hoops to see whether the logo will fall off –this is a logo printing testing ,if not fall off which means the logo is perfect .
Step 5 ,whether hula hoop is safe to use ,something like below test report maybe help
Step 6 :whether the hula hoop has gaps after assemble
And we actually did a lot of testing ,we find below if meet below requirement -then the hula hoops will be a good choice for you :1 :Weight will be close to 1kg or more than 1kg ,the hula hoops weight can be adjusted or choosed from 2lbs to 8lbs or even heavier.
