In the field, testing has proven that RimGlide Technology Enhances Throwers Inner Ability to do their best!

When top discus throwers consulted, we listened, “Rim weight was not the important factor to long throws, it was Power Retention RimGlide tm.” 
This new design technology keeps the discus balanced over a longer duration of throw, resulting in longer throws!

Secrets and tips to throwing farther from the Pros   (revised 2020)

  1. Rim weight is a comfort and skill mechanism that does not increase the distance that you can throw, but rather it increases the ability to maintain the aerodynamics and airfoil longer through the duration of the throw.  Heavier rim weights increase the radius and allow higher-end throwers to apply forces. Yet if they or you can not maintain the spin to the duration of the throw, the discus falls out of the sky!
  2.  The reason for this is the high rim weight of the discus works against you because the discus is not spinning. Too high of a rim weight may allow the discus to stop spinning throughout the throw and the rim weight works against the thrower diving prematurely. 
  3. RimGlide design is rated to maximize the distance, by presetting the weight of the rim further in on the discus. so when the discu slows its centrifugal force the discus stays flat and GLIDES to the ground. In most cases, 2 feet to 14 feet further during your throw retaining the power retention of the throw. 
  4. RimGlide also keeps the discus in the hand longer, reducing premature releases and full power retention thus less out of sector throws or cage and pole hits. Positioning the rim weight over more of the edge of the discus allowing the discus when it stops spinning to be stable and glide to the ground. RimGlide has the potential to glide 2' to 14' further as it will keep the discus in the air longer.  Many top throwers have moved to Lower RimGlide ratings and found much more control and stability in their throws.
  5. Head Wind conditions will cause the discus to dive on the backside, Sidewinds conditions also cause the discus to dive.  Moving down to a shorter distance rating will increase discus throw stability. Having a set of three discuses with proportionate RimGlide distance ratings will allow throwers to cut through the wind for more stability and more consistency at meets and in practice.
