It can be hard to decide what the best gear for your aerial silk (aerial tissue) rig should be, so let us help. Our Aerial Silk Kit has everything you need to get your aerial rig going:
- One (1) 20 yard aerial silk tissue, 108 inches wide, of your choice of color
- One (1) figure-eight descender (a.k.a rescue eight), flat on one side to distribute weight more evenly.
- One (1) large ball bearing swivel with 3-year guarantee and up to 10-year life. Keeps silk from twisting, and reduces torque on the sling or bolt attachment points.
- Two (2) William screw lock carabiners. Use to secure swivel to descender, rescue eight, or hook, and to secure swivel to sling or other attachment point. We have temporarily replaced the William Screw-Lock with the Am'D Triact-lock
- One (1) 120 centimeter sling. Put over and around a sturdy horizontal support.
This kit can also be used to make an aerial hammock or sling for yoga by purchasing an additional carabiner and descender.
