It's a Cyr Wheel (roue cyr) invented by Daniel Cyr of Cirque Eloize. My guess is that the guy in the video learned it at Ecole in Montreal, and he looks like someone I saw in their class show at Just For Laughs.

More info - http://www.cirque-eloize.com/en/about/wheel.aspx

And you can buy one from Daniel Cyr by contacting him through the Eloize website.

Enjoy!
