RimGlide Rating

We are pleased to introduce Nelco’s latest line-up of high performance competition discus with innovative distance rated RimGlide technology.

Every competition grade discus comes with RimGlide Distance Rating to help throwers to select the most suitable discus based on their ability, skill and throw conditions. To develop the RimGlide technology, Nelco engineers have been exploring the optimum weight distribution to achieve the furthest flight by presetting the ideal portion of weight to the rim on the discus.

In general, higher RimGlide Distance Rating is proportion to higher rim weight rating. The following table shows the relationship between new RimGlide rating and previou Rim Weight rating of Nelco discus.

A higher rim weight discus suits a thrower who has a more evolved technique. A thrower who can maintain a spin through two-thirds or more of the throw should move up to a higher rim weight discus. A lower rim discus may stay in the hand longer for more control and may suit a beginner or an intermediary thrower.

Wind is also a factor that effects selection of your discus. A high rim discus that may encounter a crosswind will tip prematurely reducing throw potential. One may move to a lower rim discus for better control in windy conditions.

Thus, it is necessary to carry a mix of discus will allow throwers to maintain stability and consistency in performance during practice and competition.
