WHY IS THE 1 point AERIAL HOOP FOR ME?

Safety and stability

1-Point Aerial Hoops are the most widely used Aerial Hoop. The single tab is simple to rig and ideal for spinning with a swivel. We make our Aerial Hoops in the UK to exceptionally high safety standards.

A 1-Point Aerial Hoop has more stability and predictability when rigged from the tab than a 0-Point/tabless hoop. And you can choose to choke soft rigging directly to the hoop!

The tab means you can connect a hanging rope, these look great on stage and have a better grip than a strop/spanset.

Suitable for beginners and experts

With limited height, a 1-Point or 0-Point hoop is best compared to a 2-Point hoop.

Studios usually prefer a 1-point or 0-point hoop, as do most beginners.

Some advanced moves benefit from having the hoop rigged from its tab. Moves such as Beats to Front Balance, Coffin Drop, and other catch and release moves from the top bar work best when you use the rigging point. That's because it makes the hoop's movements more predictable, and the performer doesn’t need to consider which side of the choke they are on.

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.

Note: All sizes listed are the EXTERNAL diameter of the Hoop. For the internal measurement deduct 5 cm (2 inches) from the external diameter.

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.

HOW DO I RIG THIS AERIAL HOOP?

You can choke a Polyester Strop or Aerial PolySafe Rope from the centre, sitting at the tab. Attaching soft rigging directly to the hoop reduces metal-on-metal wear at the tab and removes hardware from where you will hock on.

You can attach a Polyester Strop, Aerial PolySafe Rope, Aerial CottonSafe Rope, or a Prodigy Dyna-Core Hanging rope to the tab with a carabiner.

In some circumstances, you could use a Prodigy Aerial Sling, 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 your strop/rope to your anchor point with a carabiner. We recommend this when you want to keep a hoop rigged from one point facing an audience. We would also recommend this if you’re using a Prodigy Rig or don’t have much height.

If you want to spin, you need a carabiner at the top of the rope/strop, connected to a swivel and then another carabiner securing you to your anchor point.

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.

IMPORTANT NOTE…

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.
