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 this the right aerial hoop for me?
This stunning Aerial Heart is an ideal performance centrepiece. Its unique yet comfy shape is bound to 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.
The extra space in a heart hoop, compared to a standard Aerial Hoop, opens new possibilities for doubles performances. The design is tabless too, giving you flexibility in rigging.
Which size do I need?
We offer one size Aerial Heart designed to be the right size for most users. You can see our size guide for a standard Aerial Hoop here.
How do I rig this aerial hoop?
You will need to choke a Polyester Strop or PolySafe Rope from the top of each bump of the Heart. Either of these is essential to hang your Heart. If you are using the Aerial Heart bare (without tape), you will need to put tape at the point where you choke the strop.
In some scenarios, nylon slings may work well. For instance, for a performance with 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 at all 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. If you don't have some already we recommend items like tape, grip aids, & hand loop straps. See more recommendations at the bottom of this page.
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 which equals 25.4mm with 3.2mm 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. It looks great, protects the steel, and is easy to wipe clean. Ready to use with or without tape.

Everything above assumes you have a safe rigging point to attach to. A safe rigging point is either a professionally installed or a reputable and rated freestanding rig. Not every home/studio will be the same so we cannot advise on this part. Get the help of a structural engineer/experienced rigger familiar with what and where you're rigging. You can find some more information on how to install at home here and general aerial safety here.
