Aerial Safety

Aerial equipment should never be used unsupervised, please consult a professional.

Everything below 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.

Check out our aerial blogs for more information.

Classic Style

A classic style trapeze has stainless steel thimbles on the bar, at either end. The ropes are spliced and whipped directly onto the thimble making for a chunky and rigid elbow that is soft and comfortable all the way around.

Premium Cotton Ropes

The ropes are made from premium 4-strand, 24mm diameter, 100% natural cotton. The small amount of bounce on these makes them a great option for practicing drops and beats. The cushioning helps to reduce the impact on your hips, knees, and back, and the small amount of bounce also reduces the strain on your shoulders while beating.

The flexible ropes are also perfect for rope work that involves wrapping or toe-grips and can curl more tightly around, helping you feel more secure in wrapped moves.

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 TIG rather than MIG making for a smoother finish!

The bar's 56cm width is measured from the centre of the ropes and the bar weighs approximately 1.26kg.

- The ropes and bar cannot be removed/replaced.
- The heavier bar (compared to a shackle style) can make rope moves more difficult.
- Bounce in the ropes can make beating less predictable.
- Rigid elbows have less moveability and are less compliant than a shackle style.

Single Point Rigging

Also known as a dance trapeze, these are rigged into one single point at the top, creating a triangle shape with the ropes.

It is important to use a rigging plate or delta link in this situation to avoid tri-loading a carabiner. You may also want to use a swivel in this setup.

Double Point Rigging

The most common way to rig a trapeze. This method keeps both rope separate and leaves ample space for moves above the bar.

If you have a freestanding rig, you can attach the supplied carabiners to a strop or loop and choke these around the top bar of the rig.

If you only have one anchor point to rig from, the aerial spreader bar has got you covered! Simply attach your two carabiners to the provides holes either side of the bar.
