Nordic's Valhalla Hard Javelin is the elite javelin in their updated range.  Designed from scratch for maximum glide, the Valhalla hard is the ultimate javelin for world-class technical throwers.

This 100% carbon ‘Hard Carbon’ Javelin is targetted at very technical throwers.  It is very sensitive to technical errors/ flaws but when hit right it will directly self correct and Nordic claim the Valhalla Hard will then go further than any other javelin.

Nordic's Valhalla javelins now come with a choice of 2 new tips. 

  • Nordic Valhalla NXS Javelin tip
    NXS – Next Generation Sharp tip:   for maximum lift in all wind conditions.  The NXS tip is a universal tip and more forgiving in side/ cross wind conditions

  • Nordic Valhalla NXB javelin tip
    NXB – Next Generation Blunt:  for maximum lift in predominantly tailwind and still conditions. The NXB tip is therefore thicker and has a blunter presentation to maximise lift and therefore longer glide during perfect wind conditions for this particular tip.  NXB tip option is available to order on demand.

Nordic uses a new ratings system instead of Flex and Distance Ratings.  See the pictures for details.

Skill Level

Javelins are made to suit the different skill levels of the athlete's.  If for example a beginner starts throwing with the expert javelin, the javelin will not perform how it was intended to perform.

Here's how Nordic rate the skill level.
1. Novice
2. Advanced beginner
3. Specialist
4. Expert


The stiffer the javelin, the less it will flex/vibrate in the air and will result in less air drag.  The down side is that it puts a lot more strain on the upper body.  A soft javelin flexes/vibrates a lot, which can also be a very good thing is you are a less skilled thrower.


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.
