No point Lyra/Hoop
WHY IS THIS THE RIGHT AERIAL HOOP FOR ME?
0-point (tabless) hoops are popular because they’re simple to rig, ideal for spinning with a swivel, and versatile.
They allow you to rig as a 1-Point or 2-Point using soft rigging; this reduces wear on metal components, reduces the amount of hardware needed, and looks clean. It is helpful for studios as you can switch between 1 or 2 point configurations with only one hoop.
You can rig a 0-point hoop horizontally, known as a Chandelier Lyra; this opens up a whole new way of using the hoop and is a fantastic doubles performance piece.
WHICH SIZE DO I NEED?
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.
HOW DO I RIG THIS AERIAL HOOP?
You can choke a Polyester Strop from the center, sitting at the tab. Attaching soft rigging directly to the hoop is good for reducing metal on metal wear at the tab and removes hardware from where you will hock on.
You can attach a Polyester Strop to the tab with a carabiner.
If you do not want the Aerial Hoop to spin, you need to connect your strop/rope to your anchor point with a carabiner. We recommend this when you want to keep a hoop rigged from one point facing an audience. We would also recommend this if you’re using a Prodigy Rig or don’t have much height.
