SPORT Hoops Hoop, also known as Lyra, is a wonderful circus apparatus in which the student learns beautiful movements and shapes whilst spinning on a large metal hoop suspended in the air.
X-POLE Aerial Hoops are 34 mm in width which makes them a little different from other traditional aerial hoops (which are 24mm width). With the explosion of pole fitness studios now teaching aerial hoop it makes the transition from a pole to a hoop easier. The hoop measurements are taken from the inner diameter instead of outer, which enables you to have the correct distance you need from your head to the upper bar. A method of selecting an aerial hoop is to sit in a chair, measure from the seat of the chair to the top of the head, and add 2 inches. The number of points your aerial hoop has will depend on how you are going to use it, what effect you are after and what you are comfortable with. X-POLE Sport Hoops are also more comfortable on the hand grip.
PRO Hoops X-POLE Pro Hoops are 24mm in width and are the current industry standard size. These are perfect for performances and more advanced tricks and drops. Also for those aerialists who are comfortable with the smaller hand grip.
Dual point hoops allow less overall movement, they also allow for an extra range of poses to be performed on the top bar.
Single point hoops tend to rotate a lot more, however they allow for you to rig in smaller spaced areas.
Double point hoops allow you to perform moves that tip forward and back with a smaller amount of lateral movement.
Single point allows the hoop to rotate so additional moves can be performed.
We recommend that you tape your hoops for both hygiene issues and safety issues.
