This professional five part collapsible stainless steel Cyr wheel (aka roue Cyr) can be dismantled for ease of transport. When bolted together this prop is a perfect circle of stainless steel tubing, designed to be ridden around the floor to incredible effect.
Cyr wheel (also known as Roue Cyr, or simple wheel) is an incredible discipline that builds and requires tremendous core strength and balance, which allows you to manipulate the prop and your own body in a flurry of spinning and inversion.
Cyr wheels are similar to their older gymnastic counterpart the german wheel, but their single tube design allows them to revolve in ways that the more linear german wheel never could.
Wheels of Steel
These Cyr Wheels are rolled out of stainless steel, which is heavier and more bend-resistant than aluminium. This makes them hold their momentum longer and means they are less likely to warp over time as some aluminium wheels will. However, they are also a little harder to carry around with you .
We offer these Cyr Wheels in a variety of sizes, all of which are listed as the Internal Diameter (ID). A general rule for choosing the right size wheel for you is to take your full height, and add 10cm (4 inches).
- a 170cm Cyr Wheel is suitable for performers between 1.50m and 1.60m tall
- a 180cm Cyr Wheel is suitable for performers between 1.60m and 1.70m tall
- a 190cm Cyr Wheel is suitable for performers between 1.70m and 1.85cm tall
Ideally you would be able to test out what size suits you best before purchasing. If you’re able to get in a wheel and try it out beforehand, hold the wheel upright and stand on the inside with your heels. A suitable wheel will have roughly a fist-width plus 3 fingers between your head and the inside of the wheel.
