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.

Be a Star

2-Point Aerial Hoops allow you to use the top of the bar differently and open up moves that you can only do with a 2-point hoop, like Star on Top Bar.

If you’re lucky enough to have the height, you can rig your hoop with extra-long strops creating a long isosceles triangle. This opens up even more moves as you can use the space between the ropes, similar to a dance trapeze.

The tabs on our 2-Point Hoop are set at the perfect distance from each other, so you can use the space between the ropes comfortably without feeling cramped.

Sizing

You can see our size guide for a standard Aerial Hoop here.

You might also want to consider going up a size if you intend to use this hoop for doubles.

Note: All sizes listed are the EXTERNAL diameter of the Hoop. For the internal measurement deduct 5 cm (2 inches) from the external diameter

To Spin or not to Spin

If you do not want the Hoop to spin, you need to connect each strop/rope vertically to an anchor point with a carabiner. We recommend this when you want to be assured of facing the audience.

To spin, you must make a triangle (or upside-down vee) with your ropes/strops above the hoop. In rigging, we call this a bridle. To safely connect each of your ropes to a single point, you need a rigging plate. You will use a carabiner at the top of the rigging plate to connect to a swivel and then another carabiner securing you to your anchor point.

You can also use a Triangle Hanging Rope.

For more information on how to hang your hoop, check out our information page here and watch the video, made by our friends at circusrigging.info.

How to Rig a 2 Point Hoop

You can choke a Polyester Strop or Aerial PolySafe Rope from each tab. Attaching soft rigging directly to the hoop reduces metal-on-metal wear and removes hardware from where you will hock on.

You can attach a Polyester Strop, Aerial PolySafe Rope, Aerial CottonSafe Rope, or a Dyna-Core Hanging Rope to each tab with a carabiner.

You can use a Prodigy Aerial Sewn Loop Sling in some circumstances, but we don't recommend this for long-term rigging. You could use these in a performance if you need rigging which is less visible to the audience.

TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR CUSTOMERS
I generally train on a 100cm hoop, the size guide confirmed that this was the best fit for me. Delivery was super fast. I have struggled somewhat with getting the correct attachments between the hoop tabs and strops, but have had great advice and help from the Firetoys team in finding the appropriate solution for my requirements

Stable 2 Point Lyra!

The ear placement on this Lyra is perfect! I have another Lyra that always seems to want to flip, but this one I can even grab the top and it hangs within reach. The ears are close enough to the top not to flip but also wide enough to do plenty of top bar tricks, strapwork, and comfortable for many static trapeze poses too.

A little heavy but in general it's a good hoop.

I'm very fit but I never thought at my age I would be starting to train on a hoop. I am gaining strength very quickly and have to laugh sometimes at the progress I'm making. So much fun. Thanks for the fast delivery.

Best birthday present ever

Bought hoop for 11 year old. Lucky for her we have a high ceiling room so the hoop hangs from the 50 cm cables and gives enough clearance for tricks above and below the hoop. She loves it. She also has a set of silks so you can see how crazy she is about aerial work.
90 cm diameter good for her as gives a bit of room to grow but she can brace her feet in positions to hang upside down. Definitely a talking point for any visitors to house.
We are given regular performances. It keeps her fit and her core strength is amazing.
Not much I can say about the hoop (it's a hoop after all) but an excellent way to entertain a child and get them exercising.

Simple- Lovely

Bought this hoop at 95cm for teaching. I have found that it is a good size to teach on. The profile of the bar is a good size too for grip. I like the eyelets as they are small and don't get in the way but if you are paging the hoop down for each session mallions can get caught around the edge of the eyelet and need to be re-settled (not a big problem though and depends on the size of the mallions).

I purchased this two point hoop and absolutely love it! This is my first so i did not know what size i needed and the sizing guide was perfect, great quality and a respectable price compared to some others i had looked at when i shopped around. I will certainly be ordering all of my aerial items from firetoys in the future.

Some customers prefer not to spin while learning the Lyra, this 2 point Lyra was exactly what we needed! Thanks Firetoys!
