The GOLIATH and ACHILLE Freestanding Aerial Rig is our new line of rigging set-up for aerial artists. With the guaranteed high quality design and manufacture that made our reputation with other products, this freestanding rig is the strongest, safest and most stable of it's kind on the market. It does not require any ground anchorages ,and can be set-up by one person alone*.

The ACHILLE version is the most recommended one for travelling, with a total weight of 150 lbs - 69kg for the full 24" / 7,3m version  ( weight varies depending on options and length used ) it's very lightweight but still very stable. It has a lower Breaking load than the GOLIATH version, but still plenty of strength to handle easily duos with dynamic actions and trios with a Min um Breaking load of 5500 Lbs/2500 Kg. At one third of the weight of GOLIATH, this structure is what you need to perform anywhere, anytime. 

Comes standard with one point of attachement, but designed to be used with the optional trapeze spread-bar (see Options)

You can also protect your investment by adding a kit of 3 Aluminum stakes to your order. Made to hold your Achilles Tripod to the ground and prevent it from falling over in high winds. The stakes are made completely of aluminum and are 30 inches long, made with 3/4'' rod.
