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.

Doubles performances

Compared to a standard aerial hoop, the extra space in a heart hoop opens new possibilities for double performances.

The design is tabless, too, giving you flexibility in the rigging. 

Size and weight

The Aerial Heart is available in only one size, so our usual size guide doesn't apply.

Every element of the Aerial Heart is designed to be the right size for most users and excellent for doubles!

From the lowest central point at the top to the sit bar at the bottom, the internal diameter is 96cm (37").

The sit bar on the bottom is 35cm (13") across, and the widest point inside the Aerial Heart is 118cm (46").

The weight is 8.94kg (19lbs).

How to rig the Aerial Heart

aerial heart rigging info

You can choke a Polyester Strop or Aerial PolySafe Rope from the top of each bump on the Heart. 

If you are using the hoop bare (un-taped), you must 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.

aerial heart rigging info

You can rig the points vertically, with each strop/rope connected to the anchor point by a carabiner. We recommend this method if you do not want the hoop to rotate and want to stay facing your audience.

You can rig the points diagonally to a central point, with each strop/rope connected to a 3 Toe rigging plate by a carabiner. Then connect the top of the rigging plate to a swivel with another. Finally, connect the swivel to your anchor point with another carabiner. We recommend this method if you do want the hoop to rotate.

a range of aerial rigging accessories

Aside from a safe rigging point, there are optional accessories and essential rigging gear you might need.

What you need for each type of aerial hoop varies. If you have any questions, we are happy to help. We recommend crash mats, tape, grip aids, and hand loop straps.

I didn't realise on ordering that the red is glittery! It's really pretty. Lovely shape, great for photos or themed events.
