WHY IS THE 0 point AERIAL HOOP FOR ME?

Safety, versatility, simplicity

0-point (tabless) hoops are popular because they’re so versatile! We make our Aerial Hoops in the UK to exceptionally high safety standards.

They are also simple to rig. Removing the tabs reduces the amount of hardware needed in your overall set-up, reduces the metal-on-metal contact (which leads to excessive wear), and eliminates coming into contact with hardware on the top bar.

If you rig it as a 2-point Hoop, you can choose how far apart your points are. Having them closer together or further apart will change how the hoop feels and moves. This allows the user to play and experiment or the teacher to adjust for different students.

Suitable for beginners and experts

0-point Hoops are ideal for teachers as they offer the option to rig as a single point or a double point in just one hoop!

You can rig a 0-point hoop horizontally, known as a Chandelyra; this opens up a whole new way of using the hoop and is a fantastic performance piece.

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

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 directly to the bar. Attaching soft rigging directly to the hoop reduces metal-on-metal wear and removes hardware from where you will hock on.

If you are using the hoop bare (un-taped), you will need to put tape directly under the Strop/PolySafe Rope to prevent the bar from slipping.

You can use a Prodigy Aerial Sewn Loop Sling 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 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.
