Aerial Safety

Aerial equipment should never be used unsupervised, please consult a professional.

Everything below 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.

Check out our aerial blogs for more information.

Simple and Stable

Firetoys 1-Point Aerial Hoops are the most widely used Aerial Hoop globally. 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.

How to Rig a 1 Point Hoop

A polyester Strop or Polysafe Rope can be choked onto the top bar directly. Alternatively, ropes and strops can be attached to the tab using a carabiner like in this image.

A Prodigy Aerial Sling can also be used if you would like the rigging to be less visible for a performance or photoshoot.

If you're going to be spinning on the hoop, you will need a swivel attached above the rope or strop.

Love it!

I love this hoop! It's sturdy yet not super heavy. It's very smooth, mounting was easy, and I'm kind of addicted to playing on it! The ordering/shipping experience was smooth and quick, too.

Excellent hoop, even better customer service

I ordered this hoop twice! The first time I ordered the wrong size and had to send it back, and firetoys were amazing through the return process. The customer service people also helped me get the right size! Now that I have the hoop up and I love it. It's light and grippy even without tape, I can't wait to keep using it for many years to come!
