Hyperflite Flying Discs Overview

Models

Hyperflite’s patented canine competition discs were 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, a soft disc for your older canine or puppy, or even a cold weather disc for winter play, Hyperflite has the disc you need.

Sizes

Hyperflite canine discs are available in four sizes. Classic style discs are 9.25″ in diameter (and weigh between 114-155 grams depending upon the model selected). Full-size discs are 8.75″ in diameter (and weigh between 115-150 grams depending upon the model selected), while our Pup discs, for smaller canines, are 7″ in diameter (and weigh between 70-85 grams). And our mid-sized distance disc is 8.5″ in diameter (and weighs between 100-150 grams).

Unique Design

The K-10 design incorporated a number of improvements over existing canine competition discs including reinforced high-stress areas, aerodynamic improvements for ultra-long flights, and low-profile opposed grip surfaces that don’t retain grit and dirt, which can damage canine teeth. In recognition of Hyperflite’s quantum leap in canine disc technology, U.S. Patent No. 6,887,119 was issued, representing the first patent ever issued for a flying disc designed specifically for use in canine competition.

X-Flash Technology

The latest Hyperflite innovation, known as X-Flash™ technology, was the product of several years of hard work and experimentation. But, it might not have happened at all was it not for a happy coincidence. In essence, the discovery of the “sunflash” phenomenon (more about that later), which ultimately resulted in the development of X-Flash™ technology, was a bit like the proverbial Newton’s Apple. But before Sir Isaac Newton was bonked on his noggin by a “Granny Smith,” thousands before him were likely similarly thumped. They just didn’t put two and two together. Fortunately, when the apple finally fell on Hyperflite Co-founder, Jeff Perry, he, like Newton, knew what to do with it. (Story continued here.)

Developed by World Champions

Hyperflite was established in 2000 by Canine Disc World Champions Peter Bloeme and Jeff Perry. Owing to their decades-long experience in canine and flying disc sports, first as World Champion competitors, then as judges and contest organizers, Bloeme and Perry believed that existing flying disc manufacturers had neglected to offer innovations that kept pace with the evolving abilities of the modern canine athlete. The pair set to work to do nothing less than reinvent the canine disc. Through the application of sophisticated aerodynamic design and materials technologies, Bloeme and Perry created the K-10 canine flying disc.
