WHY IS THIS THE RIGHT AERIAL HOOP FOR ME?
2-Point Aerial Hoops allow you to use the top of the bar differently and open up moves that you can only do with a 2-point hoop, like Star on Top Bar.
If you’re lucky enough to have the height, you can rig your hoop with extra-long strops creating a long isosceles triangle. This opens up even more moves as you can use the space between the ropes, similar to a dance trapeze.
We make our Aerial Hoops in the UK to exceptionally high safety standards.
Our Aerial Hoops come ready to rig up and use out of the box, with a grippy matt powder coating that is durable and looks great. However, the bare powder coating can take a little while to warm up (like a pole dancing pole), so many people prefer to tape their hoop up in one of our many colourful grip tapes. You can find a guide to taping your aerial hoop here.
WHICH SIZE DO I NEED?
You can see our size guide for a standard Aerial Hoop here.
You might also want to consider going up a size if you intend to use this hoop for doubles.
HOW DO I RIG THIS AERIAL HOOP?
You can choke a Polyester Strop or Aerial PolySafe Rope at each of the tabs. Attaching soft rigging directly to the hoop is good for reducing metal on metal wear and removes the possibility of coming into contact with hardware when working on the top bar.
You can attach a Polyester Strop, Aerial PolySafe Rope, or a Prodigy Dyna-Core Hanging rope to each tab with a carabiner.
You could use Prodigy Aerial Slings in some circumstances, but we don't recommend this for long-term rigging. You could use these in a performance if you need rigging, which is less visible to the audience.
If you do not want the Aerial Hoop to spin, you need to connect each strop/rope vertically to an anchor point with a carabiner. We recommend this when you want to keep a hoop rigged and assured of facing the audience.
To spin, you need to make a triangle (or vee) with your ropes/strops above the hoop. In rigging terms, we call this a bridle. To safely connect each of your ropes/strops to a single point, you need to use a rigging plate. You will use a carabiner at the top of the rigging plate to connect to a swivel, and then another carabiner to secure you to your anchor point.
You can also use a Prodigy Dyna-Core Triangle Hanging Rope to connect to your swivel.

DO I NEED ANYTHING ELSE?
A safe rigging point to attach to is essential. We have comprehensive information to help you here.
Aside from a rigging point, there are optional accessories and essential rigging gear. What you need for each type of Aerial Hoop varies. If you have any questions, we are happy to help. We recommend items like tape, grip aids, hand loop straps, and this fantastic book. See more recommendations at the bottom of this page.
Made from 1” diameter 10G tubing, which equals 25.4mm with 3.2mm wall. TIG-welded with mild steel filler rod, root and then cap welds done on the top and bottom joining welds. The top weld has a solid mild steel insert to back the weld.
Powder-coated with a matte black finish, which not only looks great but protects the steel from rust and is easy to wipe clean. Ready to use with or without tape.

Everything above assumes you have a suitable and safe rigging point, like a professionally installed rigging point or a reputable and rated freestanding rig. Not every home/studio will be the same, so we cannot advise on this part. If you haven’t established a safe rigging point, please do this first with the help of a structural engineer/experienced rigger/professional familiar with what you're hanging and where you're hanging it. You can find some more information on how to install at home here and general aerial safety here.
