Firetoys Cotton Classic Trapeze
High quality and professional Static Trapeze. Featuring beautiful cotton ropes with some bounce. This bounce cushions any drops to reduce the impact on your hips, knees, and back.
The small amount of bounce also reduces the strain on your shoulders while beating.
The bar on these trapezes measure 58cm from end to end.
Suitable for singles, doubles, and dance trapeze work.
Manufactured, tested, and certified in the UK with 100% white cotton ropes.
100% COTTON ROPES
Firetoys have used ropes made from premium 4-strand, 24mm diameter, 100% natural cotton.
It is selectively sourced in the EU from a reputable manufacturer, ensuring consistency and dependability. The rope has a very tight lay, which mitigates most of the issues you can experience with a softer rope.
The cotton ropes have a 24 kN Minimum Breaking Strain (MBS).
Ropes are spliced at the top and bottom of the trapeze and whipped directly onto the stainless steel thimbles using a mighty 550 cord.
✔ Easy to dress (add padding) the elbows.
✔ Comfortable elbows – even without extra padding.
✔ The bounce in the ropes cushions the impact from drops.
✔ The small amount of bounce reduces strain on your shoulders while beating.
✔ Classic trapeze aesthetics.
✔ Recommended for beginners!

Without a non-stretch core, the ropes have some bounce.
This cushions any drops to reduce the impact on your hips, knees, and back. The small amount of bounce also reduces the strain on your shoulders while beating.
Perfect for rope work that involves wrapping or toe-grips.
A 100% cotton rope can curl more tightly around, keeping you more secure in wrapped moves.
A classic style trapeze has stainless steel thimbles on the bar, at either end.
The ropes are spliced and whipped directly onto the thimble.
This makes for a chunky and rigid elbow that is soft all the way around.
The classic style is often padded, but the padding is not essential.
The bar cannot be removed from the ropes.
STAINLESS STEEL BAR
These trapezes use a 24mm hollow stainless steel bar with two stainless steel thimbles welded securely at either end. The welding is perfect TIG welding, and you won't find a single splash or sharp edge, as you might find from a MIG welded bar.
The bar's 56cm width is measured from the centre of the ropes meaning that the width to the outside edge of the bar is 58cm.
The bar end of this trapeze weighs approximately 1.26kg.

Aerial acrobatics products have a different returns policy from the rest of our catalogue.
Please make sure you are familiar with this before buying.
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.
