  • Pineapple Fire Poi

  • Pineapple Fire Poi

Pineapple poi are a unique poi design that uses flat wicking both as the core and exterior layer. This creates a more absorbent internal reservoir giving these a long burn time.

Pineapple Poi comes with either 1/4" Technora or 3/8" Static Kevlar leashes. If your style includes more flow based, dance or relaxed style we recommend the Technora setup (the most common setup). However, if your style includes lots of juggling, gun slingers, tosses or stalls we would recommend Static Kevlar.

The specs for Pineapples -> 4" tall, ~300g (10 oz) when fueled with a burn time between 6-7 minutes.

Leash Types

Technora is our best feeling, preferred option. With great abrasion and temperature resistance properties (up to 932°F), Technora leashes allow fire poi to feel as comfortable and controlled as practice poi. However, this rope is temperature resistant, not fire proof. If you allow the leashes to rest in flames for an extended period of time (for example: setting burning poi on the ground with the leashes on top of the heads, or a severe mid-burn tangle that takes more than a five to eight seconds to unknot), the leashes may take damage. Technora leashes will be +/- 1/4" of the overall length requested.

Static Kevlar Rope is a solid core, stiff rope made from 100% para-aramid fibers. It is great for gun slingers, tosses, juggling and stalls. Like Technora it is fire resistant NOT fire proof and all of the same precautions should be taken as mentioned above.

Swivels
If you are doing hyperloops (lock the poi together infront of your body, pull, and they spin really fast and stay locked together), then you need swivels. Otherwise, you probably don't and we don't recommend them if you don't "need" them. The three inch lead option, puts a piece of Technora below the Pom grip, with a swivel on the bottom of that. This allows you to hold the Pom in your hand and still have a fully functioning swivel. Single and double loop handles have the swivel attached to the handle with no lead (it isn't needed for these). This option is only available with 1/4" technora.

Quick Links
We use and recommend zinc-plated steel quick links, as they stay closed better than the stainless steel alternatives. You do not want quick links opening in the middle of a burn. This option is only available with 1/4" technora leashes.

Handles
There are four choices for handles: PomGrips, UltraKnobs, Double Fingerloops and Single Loop.

Lanternsmith PomGrips are made from a grippy, high-temp rubber. They are weighted and shaped for tosses, and have holes through the middle to connect to leashes or swivels.

UltraKnobs made by UltraPoi, are rechargeable RGB LED silicone handles. This knob can be set to any of the colors of the rainbow, as well as strobe patterns that create intricate light trails while you spin.

Double Fingerloop Handles loop around the index and middle fingers. These cotton loops provide a solid, constant connection between you and your poi leashes.

Single Loop Handles have a single large cotton loop that partially inverts to tighten on two fingers more snuggly than double fingerloop handles can. *NOTE When measuring overall length, single loop handles are considered 2" shorter when we build leashes to account for the reduced length that happens when you invert them to put them on.



All direct connect setups will be made with 1/4" Technora. If you would like something different, please add it to the "add notes" section.
Overall Length is the entire length of the poi setup, including heads, hardware, leashes, and handles.


This is a new design. We have tested this design but PLEASE know this hasn't had large groups of artists use it in all the different possible ways it will be used yet. Keep a close eye on the head and if you see anything strange let us know.

Due to Covid and the global kevlar shortage, we are currently unable to build these heads. As soon as we are able, we will make these available again.
