Prodigy Aerial Heart - Heart shaped Aerial Hoop
Love is in the air with this Heart-shaped Aerial Hoop!
UK-made and fully certified by independent safety testers.
WHY IS THE Heart shaped AERIAL HOOP FOR ME?
This stunning Aerial Heart is an ideal performance centrepiece. Its unique yet comfy shape will bring character to your show or themed performance.
An Aerial Heart is a fantastic decorative aerial apparatus for an event. Plus, it's a functional performance piece.
Compared to a standard Aerial Hoop, the extra space in a Heart Hoop opens new possibilities for doubles performances.
The design is tabless, too, giving you flexibility in the rigging.
WHICH SIZE DO I NEED?
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!
HOW DO I RIG THIS AERIAL HOOP?
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.
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.
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.
From the lowest central point at the top to the sit bar at the bottom, the internal diameter is approx. 95cm.
The sit bar on the bottom is approx. 35cm across, and the widest point inside the Aerial Heart is approx. 118cm.
Made from 1” diameter 10G tubing (25.4mm with 3mm wall). TIG-welded with mild steel filler rod, root and then cap welds done on the top and bottom joining welds. The top weld has a solid mild steel insert to back the weld.
Powder-coated with a Sparkly Red finish, which looks great, protects the steel from rust, and is easy to wipe clean. Ready to use with or without tape.

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.
