Tapes for gymnastics hoops. In rhythmic gymnastics, gymnasts often use a special type of tape to wrap their gymnastics hoop. The tape is used to provide a better grip and to add decorative elements to the hoop. The tape used for wrapping the gymnastics hoop is typically made of a soft, slightly tacky material that provides an improved grip for the gymnast. This enhanced grip helps the gymnast maintain control of the hoop during complex maneuvers and tosses. Additionally, the tape can provide a slight cushioning effect, which may help protect the hoop from impact during routines.Tapes for rhythmic gymnastics equipment (gymnastics hoops, clubs, sticks) PASTORELLI, VENTURELLI, SASAKI, CHACOTT, AMAYA, BALESPO.
