Nordic Airglider - 800g Flex 6.1 Javelin
All-round 800g javelin that is suitable for all conditions. Softer than the equivalent carbon model. Requires very good capacity both technically and physically with the thrower.
- Flex 6.1
- Head & Tail wind
- Colour May Vary
The stiffer the javelin, the less it will flex/vibrate in the air, which means less air-drag. However, this puts a lot more strain on the upper body when throwing which can cause injuries if a stiff javelin is not released perfectly. A softer javelin flexes/vibrates a lot, which can also be a very good thing is you are a less skilled thrower and is less likely to cause shoulder and elbow injuries. The Airglider is quite a stiff javelin, but softer than the carbon equivalent.
This is the difference between throwing an iron pipe and a fine tuned javelin. The two most driving factors when it comes to the cost of a javelin is the choice of material & fine tuning of the geometry. Nordic have invested a lot of time to find the best aerodynamics for the longest flight depending of the stiffness & balance.
Balance together with aerodynamics will decide when in flight at a given velocity the javelin will turn it's tip towards the ground. If your javelin has a tendency to land flat you should try a javelin with lower level aerodynamics and balance.
