Lightweight Stainless Steel Single Point Lyra

100% No-risk - easy returns

MADE TO ORDER: This product has a higher than average processing time; please allow 2 weeks for delivery.

The Aerial Hoop, also known as Lyra, is a circus apparatus used to perform beautiful movements and shapes in the air. 


These Uplift Active hoops are perfect for everyone from beginners to professionals - they are hollow stainless steel. Lightweight hoops can be easier to manipulate; they move with the performer and tend to bruise less. 

Available in two grip sizes:

The 24.3mm Grip is the aerial industry standard diameter of tubing. It is perfect for performances, tricks, and drops. Suitable for aerialists who are comfortable with the smaller handgrip.

The 34mm Grip is thicker than standard, and provides a more comfortable grip for beginners or those transitioning from pole fitness.

This Aerial Hoop is perfect for performances, tricks, and drops.

Available in these sizes:

    • 31 inch (800mm) diameter
    • 33 inch (850mm) diameter
    • 35 inch (900mm) diameter
    • 37 inch (950mm) diameter
    • 41 inch (1050mm) diameter

Measurements are taken from the inner diameter, which allows you to have the correct distance from your head to the upper bar.

What size is best for me?

A method of selecting an aerial hoop diameter is to sit in a chair and measure the distance from the seat of the chair to the top of the head, then add 2 inches.

** Hardware Not Included ** We sell swivels, daisy chains, and carabiners separately.

Safety tips for aerial fitness:

  • Use a mat under your apparatus
  • Always practice with a spotter for flips and harder moves
  • Learn from a professional. Books, YouTube and videos are a great source, but we highly recommend attending an Aerial Class
  • Always check your equipment before each use to make sure damage has not occurred at any time and that the rigging is secure
  • We recommend that you tape your hoops for both hygiene issues and safety issues.

What is an Aerial Hoop, or Lyra?

The Aerial Hoop, also known as “Lyra”, is a metal apparatus (made of hollow steel) that looks like a suspended hula-hoop. Aerial hoops are usually available in single point and double point configurations.

Which is better, a single point or double point hoop?

Whether you select a single or double point hoop depends on how you are going to use your lyra. Keep in mind:

  • Single point hoops tend to rotate a lot more, but they can be rigged in smaller spaces.
  • The rotation of single point hoops allow for additional moves
  • Double point hoops allow you to perform moves that tip forward and back with a smaller amount of lateral movement.
  • Double point hoops allow less overall movement. They also allow for an extra range of poses to be performed on the top bar. However, due to the method of rigging, they do take up more vertical space

    I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

    Good quality hoop

    I ordered the 37" single-point hoop for my 13yr old daughter. The quality is good and the size works well for her 5'3" height (I followed the measuring guidelines on the website). It arrived within the window of time that was stated.

    Hi Allison, Thank you for taking the time and sharing your experience here! May your daughter enjoy flying in her new Lyra! :)

    Works well.

    We purchased the 37 inch hoop with the 34 mm grip as we�۪re by no means professionals. It arrived quickly (within two wks. of ordering) and well packaged. We had no problem attaching it to the carabiners and it taped up nicely. We�۪re very pleased with this purchase.

    Super helpful company!

    The customer service was amazing-- emails were answered promptly and helpfully, and they were great at adapting on the fly and getting things sent quickly (even in the midst of a global pandemic). The hoop itself is really nice, but be aware that lightweight means VERY lightweight, probably the lightest hoop I've ever come across. Not a negative at all, just something to bear in mind!

    Hi Rachel, Thank you for sharing your experience with our community! We appreciate these kind words. Our team would be very happy to hear such good feedback from you. Enjoy your new Lyra and happy flying! :)

    lightweight stainless steel aerial hoop

    the hoop itself is sturdy and good to use, however, the welded holding joint looks messy (****) that was of poor workmanship, which is disappointing. The entire hoop was poorly taped as protection for shipping, which unnecessarily left sticky dots on the hoop.

    Uplift Active

    Sorry to hear the hoop is not as expected! We've contacted you for more information about the welding joint and would like to investigate this further.
