We are very proud to announce that we have joined forces with Elevation Disc Golf as their newest retail partner!
With their rubber discs, you can confidently drive through wooded areas and expect very little kick back on trees and minimal ground play. They are a staple for when you want your disc to stick to the ground.
So what makes Elevation discs so great? Let's get into it.
First off, they have a few unique blends of rubber with different characteristics. Here is a chart with the relative flexibility of each blend:
As you can see, they offer 4 different blends as of now, ranging from OG to ecoFLEX in terms of flexibility.
Here is a brief description of each blend:
Our original floppy rubber, OG, is as good as it gets for stopping ground-play and roll-aways. Being our floppiest material (maybe the floppiest in disc golf) it excels at absorbing impact, and with some practice, will shave some strokes off your game. Not to mention, the extremely vibrant colors will be sure to help your disc stand out on the course and give each individual disc a unique look.
Newcomer provides that same incredible hand feel and coloration as OG, but with some key differences. Engineered specifically with our Binx control driver in mind, some added stiffness provides support for when you need to put a move on your disc, but still has enough flexibility to mitigate groundplay when you need to most.
Our ecoFLEX rubber is made of vulcanized natural rubber, with up to 30% recycled material made of scrap from medical industry manufacturing such as rubber gloves, or stoppers. In other words, every 1,000 discs we produce prevents 10,000 rubber gloves that did not meet manufacturing standards from ending up in the world's landfills. Although it uses recycled material, it is extremely durable due to the strong and flexible nature of vulcanized natural rubber. It is also super grippy (think pink eraser or a new shoe sole) and our stiffest material to date making it easy to pick up and start using right away, while still maintaining a flex that absorbs impact.
Our ecoFLOP rubber is made of vulcanized natural rubber, with up to 30% recycled material made of postconsumer tire rubber. In other words, every 10,000 discs we produce we get to take 130 used tires out of the world's landfills. Again, this is not your average recycled disc, our eco-materials maintain incredible durability thanks to the uniquely strong characteristics of rubber. It is also super grippy (think the tires of your car) and has a floppiness somewhere between ecoFLEX and OG, so your disc will flop onto the ground and grip to where it lands.
