Aerial hoops, also known as Lyras, are classic aerial circus performance props. Much like trapezes and aerial ropes, they’ve recently grown in popularity and are now appearing in studios and halls all over the world.
These brand new white hoops from firetoys are much like our limited edition white hoops from last year, but they now have a subtle sparkle to them, that can be seen here.
Like our standard black hoops, these can be used bare or covered in cotton tape. This means you can make your white hoop any colour you want with our range of cotton tapes, or use it naked for a special striking reflective finish. If you'd prefer to use it bare then you can enhance the already quite grippy paintwork with Magic Grip Spray.
Like our other aerial hoops it is made from premium grade steel but has a glitzy white sparkle finish. The paint job on the white aerial hoops is just as tough and durable as on our black ones thanks to the epoxy resin powder coating that is baked on for a longer lasting finish.
The connector on this hoop is ready to accept any suitable carabiner in order to connect it to a strop, hanging cable, or cable reinforced cotton rope. Please note - the 12mm quick links (maillon rapide) will not fit our aerial hoops as the thread is wider than the hole in the rigging point (the 8mm maillon rapides will fit). You can also connect the ring directly to a strop without the need for a carabiner.
If you want to make this aerial ring rotate you can also add a high strength swivel at the top of your assembly.
Some examples of rigging options for a one point ring:
Sizing: If you are unsure which size you need, sit on a chair and measure from the seat to the top of your head, then add 10cm (eg: chair to top of head is 85cm, then you need a 95cm aerial hoop). For more information on getting the right sized hoop, click here.
Please note: all sizes refer to the EXTERNAL diameter. The internal diameter is 5cm less than the external diameter.
If you're getting an aerial hoop for a class or for shared use, a 95cm ring would be the most suitable as its the most popular size and is mid way through the range.
If you want to add some grip or more colour to this hoop many people cover the metal with Mueller tape. You can find a guide to taping your aerial hoop here.
