Prodigy Aerial Sling with O-Rings and Bag
Prodigy Aerial Slings (also known as Silk Slings, Silk Loops, and Silk Hammocks) are rigged as a Hammock and are a fun and accessible way to combine Trapeze and Silk skills.
While distinct from Aerial Yoga, Aerial Sling practice is more dynamic and needs more height, there is a crossover between the disciplines, and you can use Aerial Sling for your yoga practice too!
8m and 10m lengths include 2x O-rings and a bag.
The O-rings are not tied onto the fabric.
Why Should you choose Prodigy Aerial Slings?
The fabric used for Prodigy Slings is woven with a tricot warp knit, giving them a small amount of bounce (Low-Stretch does not mean zero-stretch), making it easy to set the correct height without having to compensate for too much stretch once your weight is in it. They have enough stretch for drops.
You can also use the same 8m or 10m length as Aerial Silks!
At 2.8m/110 inches wide, these are perfect as a Aerial Sling (silks hammock/loop) and you can also use them for Yoga if our 6m lengths aren't long enough or you want to cross the disciplines.
You can find our 6m Aerial Yoga sets with this fabric here.
Shiny and practical
These silks have a beautiful shine, giving a fantastic look to any performance while remaining grippy enough to climb easily. They also have just enough weight to stay in place for you without weighing you down while wrapping.
Prodigy has also included a reusable bag with these silks, perfect for safely carrying and storing your silk.
Aerial Slings are typically rigged like a Hammock from a single point.
Prodigy Aerial Slings are supplied with O-rings, and other accessories are sold separately.
These could include carabiners, a 3 Toe rigging plate, or for more separation a 5 Toe rigging plate. You can also rig the Aerial Slings using the Prodigy Elevate - Figure 8s.
We've partnered with Circus Safety & Rigging to create this video and more besides. The video below covers methods for Aerial Yoga hammocks, too - please DO NOT use the sewn loop sling or loop adjuster methods to rig an Aerial Sling - those methods are only suitable for less dynamic or ground-based yoga.
Mark Gibson from Aerial Edge, Glasgow’s Circus School, and Catherine Knowles, from Community Circus Paisley, will share their knowledge with you, and if you need to know anything else - we're here to help you too!

All Aerial fabrics are prone to reaching high temperatures during long or high-energy slack drops, sometimes resulting in small melted patches and even holes. These holes are caused by the friction of the fabric rubbing against itself and the performer during high-speed movement. Nylon and low-stretch fabrics are more susceptible. You should always take care when practicing slack drops and be aware of the high amount of friction you can generate during these drops.
If you regularly perform slack drops, you will need to inspect the entire length of your fabric regularly, and the fabric will need to be replaced more often.
Aerial acrobatics products have a different returns policy from the rest of our catalogue. Please make sure you are familiar with this before buying.

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.
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 more information on how to install at home here and general aerial safety here.
