Recommended Simple Wheel Size Chart- Get Best Wheel Size Advices With CircusConcepts

in Simple Wheels on .

A wheel that is too small makes it hard to create nice lines (to keep arms and legs straight). 

With a wheel that is too big, you will either not be able to spin with it, or you will have a hard time creating power and will probably get shoulder pain. Choosing the right wheel size is an art, but from experience, we've come to a general standard on wheel size. In the list below, you can find what we believe is the best wheel size advices. If you do have longer or shorter arms than usual, you should consider this as a factor. Do not hesitate to contact us if you want us to help you choose!

Now - if you suspect yourself to be "non-standard' in arm span, you should also check out this video to take that into consideration.

If your not standard -- maybe better to send us an email with your 'specs' and we'll help you!

Hugo Noel

Name: Hugo Noël President of CircusConcepts and internationally recognised Artist Grew up in: St-Antoine-de-Tilly, Québec, Canada Raised part-time on a sailboat sailing around the Atlantic Ocean, Hugo is a very friendly person who likes to spend quality time with friends. Since he discovered circus in 2003, he has been consumed by his passion for creation and physical accomplishments. He first started by learning the basics at the Québec Circus School, and at the same time started competing in trampoline. Just in time for him to finish his studies in mechanical engineering, he was hired by Cirque Starlight, in Switzerland, where he made his debut as a professional circus performer. He since then worked for various companies in touring or fixed show in Europe and America. After leaving the “LOVE” show in Las Vegas, he went back to Canada to perform his many skills in corporate events. His acts have had since a great success, having been presented in over 25 countries around the world, more than 15 festivals and numerous awards, including 4 at the most recognised circus festival of Monte-Carlo, and his act was again presented in 2016 for the "Best of last 40 years" in Monte-Carlo. There are now an average of 15 artists working for Circus Concepts for galas and shows, and also have 3 persons working with us in the office engineering side of the company, 4 in the manufacture, creating the dream apparatus of the artists. Using the skills he has been taught by his father since very young, and other knowledge he acquired in a work and study education in Mechanical Engineering and while he “ran away with the circus”, Hugo also draws and shapes metal to help circus artist achieve success – making people believe in dreams. See for more info on shows.
