We proudly present our sponsors:
ARIA is a company founded by ultimate players, so we know how a competition disc should feel and how it should fly. You will notice a few more yards on your hucks due to a more precise and sleek wing shape. Otherwise, the disc will perform the way you expect. The biggest technical improvement is perhaps in the plastic! The ARIA disc stays softer in really cold temperatures, holds its form better in really hot temperatures, and is friendlier on the hands when catching. We are the newest officially approved WFDF Championship-level disc.
One big difference is that 5 Ultimate doesn't simply "import from China". They manufacture their products themselves and oversee every step of the supply chain in person on the ground in China. From a small factory, owned and operated by a couple and their son and daughter and where the wages and working conditions of the 40 employees are well above standard, they ship their apparel slowly by boat (because it's greener than shipping by a fast plane).
Their Seattle office runs on 100% wind energy and 10% of the bottom line goes back into developing the sport. They've teamed up with Ultimate Peace to build a little piece every day. Windmill will offset the shipping carbon footprint of the Windmill merchandise sold at the tournament.
And here are a few of our fine partners:
