The Zorb ball is also known as the Human Hamster Ball, Human Bubble ball, or the OGO (Outdoor Gravity Orb). It is a ball made of transparent PVC or TPU used in the activity called Zorbing. A person would fit inside such a sphere and roll down a slope for fun, run across water surfaces or even be pulled by a jet ski.
In this article we will cover something about zorb balls, talk about celebrities going zorbing in the media, and also show you where you can buy your own zorb ball.
Zorb ball can be used for a wide series of sports and activities. These giant inflatable balls are super fun. But you must know there is more to the balls then meets the eye. Let us dig a little deeper, and tell you more about them.
The ball is made out of two sections, one ball inside the other, with a layer of air in between. The two are linked by an intricate network of nylon wires. Sometimes there can be more than 300 individual threads linking them. This structure prevents the rider from injury as it acts like a shock absorber, damping bumps along the ride. In opposition to the original hamster ball, which is made of rigid material, the human-hamster-ball is made of soft malleable plastic and is lightweight. The PVC material is usually around 0.8 mm (0.03 in) thick.
About the types of zorb Balls, there are two main types of spheres in use right now. One type makes use of straps to hold the rider in position. The other allows the rider to be free in order to walk the orb around or to be tossed freely by the rolling motion. The latter can be half filled with water so that the person inside just slides around freely in water while the zorb rolls downhill. This is called hydro zorbing.
