  • HANDSTAND BLOCKS SET OF 2

    HANDSTAND BLOCKS SET OF 2

    The handstand blocks (also called hand balance cubes) are commonly used in performance with six blocks, where each cube is removed or added one at a time. The blocks are precision made out of poplar woodcut by CNC and then velvet coated on two sides.

    The block can be used in either horizontal or vertical positions. The velvet coating makes for an excellent easy to grip surface. These two blocks are 15 cm x 10cm x 5.5cm with an average weight, of 350 grams. Handstand Blocks are much easier to balance on than hand balancing on the floor. The blocks give you much better control and grip. They also reduce the stress on your wrists, as they don't require you to have as much wrist flexibility. Using handstand blocks you can practice longer with less body fatigue and reduced chances of injury.

    Sold as a pair.

  • HAND BALANCE BOARD Rectangular version

    HAND BALANCE BOARD Rectangular version

    This new integrated board design in a simplified version for a very affordable price uses the hand blocks to lock in the canes to the baseboard for transport. The baseboard is made from 25mm thick plywood that is precision cut by CNC. The baseboard is 55 cm x 85 cm and provides a wide stable platform to balance on. The total weight of the unit, which includes a carrying bag is 6 KG (13.2 pounds). The hand blocks are made of solid beach wood and provide a solid gripping surface for your hands. The solid beech blocks measure 13 cm x 10 cm x 3 cm in thickness in the Rectangular version and 120 mm in diameter x 30 mm in thickness in the Round version. The board with its rubber non-slip feet and the stainless steel canes in the sockets has a total height of 58 cm from the floor surface to the top of the block. This is an optimal height for most acrobats. This board uses the same canes, hand blocks and cane socket size as the Gerris Hand Balance Platform, so the canes can be interchanged between both products.

    Hand Balancing is a very ancient art form. A female acrobat is depicted on a Greek hydra dated 340-330 BC. Minoan (Crete) acrobats on the backs of bulls have been dated at 2000 BC. Acrobatics including handstands, was also part of Chinese culture in the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD220) The first use of hand balance canes is unknown, but surely it is a very old technique.
