This tabless aerial hoop is made from premium grade steel with a sparkly white finish. The paint job on our aerial hoops is now better than ever before. It's even more hard-wearing thanks to the epoxy resin powder coating that is baked on for a longer lasting finish. This guarantees that you can tape and retape your hoop as often as you want without the paint flaking off (as often seen on low quality aerial rings).
This aerial hoop has no attachment points, or in other words is tabless. Some people like lyras without tabs for aesthetic reasons - you get a nice circle with no bits (rigging points) sticking out from it. However, most people use aerial rings with no attachment points for a combination of aesthetics and rigging reasons.
Due to the lack of rigging points, the extra tough powder coating we apply misses 2 spots where it needs to be hung from. These spots are covered with a permanent Firetoys sticker. This sticker is not to be removed, and neither the sticker or the 2 uncoated spots are signs of damage and will not affect the hoop's use.
A tabless aerial hoop can be rigged like a one point or a two point hoop. This can be useful for people teaching lyra as you can just set up a 0 point hoop differently for each class rather than buying a one point and a two point aerial ring. Tabless hoops also allow you to use a horizontal configuration rather the regular vertical configuration.
Tabless lyras are generally rigged using a polyester strop choked to the top of the hoop. A small piece of friction tape under the choke and loading can help keep the strop in place. If you want to make this aerial hoop rotate you can also add a high strength swivel at the top of your assembly.
