Our 2 point aerial hoops for a rotating or non-rotating setup. All sizes are EXTERNAL diameters. WLL: 660 lbs (300kg)
Aerial hoops, also known as aerial rings or lyras, are a classic aerial circus performance props much like trapezes and aerial ropes. They’ve recently grown in popularity and are now appearing in studios, halls and shows all over the world.
Our two point aerial hoop is made from premium grade steel with a black matt finish. The paint job on our aerial hoops is now better than ever before. It's even more hard-wearing thanks to the epoxy resin powder coating that is baked on for a longer lasting finish.
The connectors on this hoop are ready to accept suitable carabiners in order to connect it to a strop, hanging cable, or cable reinforced cotton rope. Please note - the 12mm quick links (maillon rapide) will not fit our aerial hoops as the thread is wider than the hole in the rigging point (the 8mm maillon rapides will fit). You can also attach our strops directly to the hoop hanging points without the need for a carabiner.
Using cable reinforced ropes is the preferred rigging method for many people as it opens up tricks using the ropes that you can't do with a one-point aerial ring.
For a rotating and very stable rig you can use a paw plate to connect the top of the 2 cables, strops or ropes together, and then attach them to a swivel.
Some examples of rigging options for a two point lyra:
Sizing: If you are unsure which size you need, sit on a chair and measure from the seat to the top of your head, then add 4" (eg: chair to top of head is 33", then you need a 37" aerial hoop). For more information on getting the right sized hoop, click here.
Please note: all sizes refer to the EXTERNAL diameter. The internal diameter is 2" less than the external diameter.
If you're getting an aerial hoop for a class or for shared use, a 37" ring would be the most suitable as its the most popular size and is mid way through the range.
