ARIA is an innovative business that uses precision discs to increase the reach and impact of ultimate worldwide. We believe that cooperation, integrity, inclusiveness, and athletic excellence are intrinsic to our sport, and we will drive our company to promote these values with our elite products, excellent service, and long-term dedication to the sport.
We are ultimate players. We love the game, we love the people, and we believe in the future of our sport. Together with the global ultimate community, we can make a world of difference.
We believe that ultimate is more than a sport. It is a community centered around values that have the ability to shape the way we view the world and interact with other people. We think that everyone should have the opportunity to learn from this great sport. That is why our company is committed to giving back to the community that is creating so many opportunities for players across the globe. Read more about our 1 for 1 model.
When you buy an ARIA disc, you are supporting organizations that are changing the world through the sport of ultimate.
We started this process by simply looking at discs. We wanted to know what works for us as ultimate players, what doesn't, and why?
Bringing together a team of scientists and engineers, we began examining every ultimate disc that we could find. It wasn't a simple task to try to quantify what "feels right", but after extensive testing we began to put it together.
We looked at the chemical composition of performance plastics, analyzed the additives and compounds, and tested the mechanical properties. We were on a mission to figure out exactly what could make a disc the disc that we, as ultimate players, want to throw.
Using the data we acquired, we identified the specific characteristics that make discs "feel right", fly right, and perform ideally in a wide range of conditions. We then compiled a list of properties that we wanted, and used these to determine the material composition in our disc.
During the design process, we assessed how slight changes in shape, size, and even minor imperfections affect the flight path and stability of aerodynamic objects. This data helped us optimize our design—we tweaked all of the different variables before our first prototype, then dove in. Then we repeated that process 67 times. Finally, we settled on our perfect materials, shot them in our precision mold, and created the be-all and end-all disc for ultimate players—the ARIA disc.

"[The disc feels] as good as eating waffles on a Sunday morning after a long sleep with no alarm."
Riot, Seattle WA
"I like the disc, especially with regards to conditions like this. It's very responsive and holds its edge upwind."
Canadian National Team, Vancouver BC
"I could huck it upwind really far! ...I hear there's some physics in there."
Traffic, Vancouver BC
As ultimate continues to grow and evolve, the technology at the foundation of the sport will need to evolve and improve in parallel. It is our mission to not only support this growth but to also be the driving force behind its technological innovation. New advanced materials are being developed every day, aerodynamic flight is being optimized, and the needs of the sport continue to evolve at all levels—these dynamic elements are just a piece of what drives ARIA to innovate.
