The 9 Best Yoga Wheels Reviewed & Tested
UpCircleSeven [Pro Series] Yoga Wheel
The UpCircleSeven brand is quickly becoming a favorite best yoga wheel for good reason. They offer multiple amazingly cool styles, colors and materials at a great price. The cork wheel pictured above is my personal favorite but they currently have non-cork versions with the black exterior available as well.
This particular wheel is 12 x 5 inches and tested to support up to 550 pounds. Its outer layer is sweat wicking and cork itself is naturally antimicrobial. The company offers a 100% guarantee in the event that you’re dissatisfied but it’s highly unlikely. The cork coating is among the thickest available (very comfortable) so its easy on the spine. Overall this is a very stylish, durable and comfortable wheel that won’t bend, break or smell after years of using.
- Comes in several styles and colors
- Extra thick padding on the outside of the wheel
- Very durable – can support up to 550 lbs
- Cork is naturally antimicrobial
- Sweat resistant
- Does not retain odors
- Does not include instructions for use
Seigla Basic Yoga Wheel
The Seigla Yoga wheel is a basic 12″ wheel with a textured moisture proof TPE foam coating and high rigidity PVC core. It offers similar benefits to cork because the coating is an antimicrobial sweat resistant foam that’s free from chemicals, dyes and phthalates.
The core of the wheel is stress tested to support up to 600 pounds so you won’t have any problems with it bending (even in standing balance poses). The TPE foam coating offers wonderful slip protection and it doesn’t gap away from the PVC core even after many uses.
This is a purely functional wheel that, while not offering many style choices, will get the job done and do it reliably.
- Lower cost than many wheels
- Chemical free foam coating
- Antimicrobial coating
- Coating is also sweat resistant
- The wheel is guaranteed not to crack or bend for life
- Easy to transport
- Some people have complained of a chemical smell but it’s uncommon
- Currently only comes in one color
