MVP disc golf discs are developed with GYRO™ Overmold Technology and with three physical factors in mind.
GYRO™ Overmold Technology is a dual-polymer concept that allows a disc's central core to be molded with a different material than its outer rim. This Overmold design allows the outer rim to be comprised of a heavier material than the inside central core thereby creating an enhanced gyroscopic effect when spin is imparted on the disc. The unique over-molded edge is soft and tacky yet allows flexibility and firmness in the body. The softer outside rim aides in grabbing the chains and dropping the disc into the basket. The edge where the flight plate meets the rim is rounded, providing a comfortable grip so your fingers conform to the disc. The gyroscopic effect stabilizes the disc's flight and helps it better maintain its angular momentum to produce straighter, longer, and more accurate results.
Along with GYRO™ Overmold Technology, three physical properties occur simultaneously and allow a disc to stay in flight. They are aerodynamics, linear momentum, and angular momentum, and they affect a disc’s performance.
Linear momentum is a disc’s ability to maintain a forward traveling energy as a result of its mass and traveling velocity. This linear momentum is coupled with
Aerodynamics to allow the disc to stay in flight by means of Bernoulli’s principle.
Angular momentum, also known as the gyroscopic effect, is the third aspect of disc flight that is the result of a disc’s rotating mass which keeps it spinning on its axis of rotation so that the disc will be aerodynamically supported in flight. The amount of angular momentum is determined by a disc’s moment of inertia. Increasing a disc’s moment of inertia will increase its angular momentum and allow it to be maintained longer throughout its flight.
GYRO™ Overmold Technology transfers mass away from the axis of rotation and increases the moment of inertia at parabolic proportions.
Since linear and angular momentum and aerodynamics act upon each other simultaneously, an enhanced gyroscopic effect will improve all aspects of disc flight. Increased angular momentum of a disc in flight will allow the disc to stay on its rotational axis for a longer period of time, which means that its aerodynamic properties will be better exhibited for a longer period of time. When a thrower uses MVP discs, they will be able to achieve straighter, longer, and more accurate results.
All of the aforementioned elements of physics are very important in disc golf, and all of them are considered equally in all MVP designs.
