RIG THEM YOUR WAY!
These hammocks don't have any rigging equipment provided. Those need to be purchased separately, depending on how you prefer to use your hammock sling.
- To rig these with o-rings, like with this set, you will need Steel O rings for Hammocks and carabiners. This way of rigging is best for a performance hammock/silks sling, or when you don't need to make frequent height adjustments.
To make easy adjustments to the height with this set, you can add a Prodigy Aerial 5 Loop Chain.
- To rig these hammocks like this set, you will need two of these, in the 60cm length and carabiners. This way of rigging is the most affordable way to make very precise adjustments to the height but does involve some simple knots.
- To rig these hammocks like this set, you will need the Prodigy Hammock Loop Adjusters (pair). This rigging method is the easiest and quickest way to make very precise adjustments to the height without any knots.
These hammocks look stunning at home or in the studio. The fading ombre colours and the dazzling multi-colour designs look particularly spectacular when backlit and make for incredible photos and performances.
We use a heat printing technique on our fabrics, which gives our colours a high degree of precision. This means the ombre colour will change gradually, look natural, and look consistent across batches. Hand dying does not allow for such a high degree of precision and consistency.
HOME OR STUDIO
These are low stretch like our single colour Prodigy 6m Yoga Hammocks. This gives the perfect amount of support to suspensions and inversions, with less effort required to move while held by the hammock.
The low stretch also makes this fabric behave predictably, making it easy to set the correct height without compensating for too much stretch once your weight is in it. This is great for a studio where you're rigging at multiple heights for multiple people and different moves. It means less time adjusting, fewer interruptions to your sequences, and a better flow overall!
The heat printing keeps the yarn smooth and soft, which feels great. Hand dying processes can negatively affect the texture of the fabric. These hammocks have a nice shine and texture.
At 2.8m/110 inches wide, you’ll have enough fabric for anything you need to do as part of your training, even allowing for full splits. They are wide enough to lay down completely enveloped in a cocoon of bliss to relax at the end of your sequence.
USEFUL AND REUSABLE BAG
What's better than a single-use plastic bag to store your hammock in transit? A bag you can use again and again! The bag supplied with this is perfect for carrying your hammock and rigging.
UK MADE, TESTED, AND CERTIFIED
The heat printing process does not negatively affect the strength of the yarn, another benefit compared to some hand-dying methods.
These fabrics are made, tested, and certified in the UK.
