Hyperflite Flying Discs Overview
In 2000, Hyperflite patented the K-10 disc and we haven’t looked back since. Our discs are designed to meet the evolving needs of the modern canine athlete. Whether you seek an ultra-tough disc for your tough-biting monster, a hi-performance distance disc for your speedy retriever, a soft disc for your older canine or puppy, or even a cold weather disc for your trusty Husky, Hyperflite has you covered with the most extensive line of sizes and materials to choose from.
Hyperflite offers discs in seven sizes and three aerodynamic profiles. From our 4″ Nano disc to our 10″ Alpha disc, there is something every dog will love. In addition, we offer material formulations to satisfy gentle biters as well as hard-mouthed chompers. All Hyperflite discs are approved for use in the Skyhoundz Canine Disc Competition Series, and designed for maximum performance in freestyle and long-distance events. So, whether you’re a backyard champion or aspire to be a World Champion, we’ve got the perfect disc for you and your dog!
Innovative Designs & Materials
Hyperflite’s original K-10 disc design incorporated a number of improvements over existing canine competition discs including reinforced high-stress areas, unique aerodynamic designs for ultra-long flights, and low-profile opposed grip surfaces that don’t retain grit and dirt, which can damage canine teeth. In 2000, Hyperflite received the first patent ever issued for a flying disc designed specifically for use in canine competitions. We continue to push the envelope with food-safe polymer formulations and our discs are all proudly manufactured in the USA.
The latest Hyperflite innovation, known as X-Flash™ technology, was the product of several years of hard work and experimentation. While judging Freestyle, an experienced Hyperflite competition judge observed a bright flash of reflected sunlight emanating from the surface of a flying disc an instant before a competing canine could snatch it from the air. However, not only did the canine miss the disc, it missed the next few discs as well. Our expert’s lightbulb moment helped us realize that discs with glossy surfaces (like the kind made by most disc manufacturers) produce a disorienting reflection known as the “sunflash” phenomenon. Hyperflite immediately set about experimenting with special frosted textures that could be incorporated into Hyperflite’s canine disc molds. The perfect texture would need to scatter enough sunlight to effectively kill sunflash at the surface of the disc. The texture also had to be exceptionally smooth so as not to cause wear to canine teeth. After much experimentation, Hyperflite introduced X-Flash on all its disc models.

Developed by World Champions
Founded by WORLD CHAMPIONS, Hyperflite was born from the belief that existing flying disc manufacturers had neglected to offer innovations that kept pace with the evolving abilities of the modern canine athlete. In recognition of Hyperflite’s quantum leap in canine disc technology, in 2000, U.S. patent No 6,887,119 was issued, representing the first patent ever awarded for a flying disc designed for use in canine competition.
