Prodigy Aerial Silks

All of these silks are listed as the full length of the cut fabric, but to use as silks will need folding in half and tying to a figure 8 or fabric hook. This knot usually takes up about 0.5m of the fabric, you will also want some fabric left at floor level to allow slack for wraps. silks length

Low Stretch, Double Width

The Prodigy silks are woven from nylon in a way that gives them a small amount of bounce, without making them so stretchy as to drain your energy while climbing. This gives them enough cushioning for drops while leaving you with the stamina for long performances and routines. These may not be the best for learning drops on however, for more cushioning silks, see our own Firetoys Aerial Silks.

Low Stretch does not mean no stretch though, and the limited stretch these silks do have means that wraps won't constrict you or cut into you like some cheaper nylon silks can do, allowing both efficiency and comfort.

Prodigy Aerial silks are also much wider than most silks available in Europe, measuring in at 290cm wide, these are excellent for cocoons and width based wraps, and can also be rigged as a hammock/loop. Fear not though, as they are a slightly finer knit than many silks at 40 denier, even with both halves bunched together, they won't be too bulk for most aerialists hands.

This particular type of fabric also grants these silks their beautiful shine, which gives a fantastic look to any performance, while remaining grippy enough to climb with ease. They also have just enough weight to them to stay in place for you, without weighing you down while wrapping.

Fully Tested and Certified

Prodigy silks are regularly destruction tested, and have been assigned a WLL (working load limit) of 220kg (485lbs) based on a safety factor of 7:1, these tests were done while rigged to an aluminium figure 8, which is the most common way of rigging this type of fabric. If you wanted to increase your fabric's durability, you can add a sleeve before rigging to a figure 8, or rig from a fabric hook

If you need a certificate for your performances or insurance, these are available on request from Firetoys.
