TLDR, what’s the deal here, anyway?

Is an ARIA disc the same as other ultimate discs?
There are several companies that make their own brand of ultimate disc. The ARIA disc is not the same as other discs, but it feels familiar and the way it flies is consistent with what ultimate players are used to.
What’s different about the ARIA disc?
ARIA is different in two ways. Firstly, the disc itself is molded elegantly and precisely, and the material used is perfected for improved performance across a wide range of temperatures. If you want to read more about the science behind our plastic, check out this informative blog post. Secondly, when you buy a disc, we donate a disc, making ARIA Discs a company that is leading the industry in supporting the growth of the sport of ultimate.
What are the technical specifications of the ARIA disc?
The ARIA disc is 175 grams of precision disc technology. We use top quality compounds in the design of our materials, and the diameter and height of our discs is exactly in line with the highest international standards.
Do you ship discs internationally?
Yes, we do. Cost and timeline vary by country, but it’s our goal to service all corners of the globe with ARIA discs.
Can I use an ARIA disc in an ultimate game? Is the ARIA disc USA Ultimate officially approved?
The ARIA disc is officially certified by USA Ultimate and the World Flying Disc Federation for use at the Championship level, which means it can be used at any level, including national and international championships! See more on that here. But you can use an ARIA disc any way you like—it is designed to perform at the top level in games of ultimate, but it can also be used for disc golf, trickshots, goaltimate, or any other game you can make up.
Where’s my ARIA donation disc going to?
With ARIA’s 1 for 1 Model, when a customer buys a disc from us at retail price, we make one disc available to one of our social partners. We will then ship the discs to the partners so that they can use them as they see fit.
How are the ARIA social partners chosen?
ARIA currently partners with a variety of different social impact organizations that work in the world of ultimate. These organizations have an amazing drive, a dedication to their communities, and a passion for the ideals of the sport. There are certainly thousands of other organizations out there that will benefit from receiving discs from ARIA in the future, and we look forward to starting those conversations as we scale. It will always be important to us to make sure we are listening to the needs of the organizations first and foremost. We are always encouraging new partners to apply to be a part of our social organization donation process.

What’s the origin of the ARIA Discs name?
Aria is the Italian word for air. It’s what we breathe, it’s what surrounds us, and it’s what helps a disc along its glorious flight path from thrower to receiver.
Is ARIA Discs owned by the apparel company Five Ultimate, the AUDL team Seattle Cascades, The All-Star Ultimate Tour, or TheUltimateProject.org?
No, ARIA Discs is an independent company that is designed to support all ultimate players, regardless of what league they are in or what jerseys they wear. The co-founders of ARIA are also the co-founders of Five, Cascades, All-Star Ultimate Tour, and TUPO.org. The fundamental ethos, integrity, and commitment to excellence and SOTG of all five entities is based on the same value system, but ARIA is its own company. In 2020, ARIA Discs joined the XII Brands family and is now the official disc partner of Five Ultimate and VII Apparel Co.
Is it also 1 for 1 when I order 100 custom printed team discs?
Because we offer price discounts for bulk orders of discs, we are not able to match each disc in custom team orders. However, if you order 100 discs, we will donate 10 discs to one of our organizations. We encourage you to host a discussion with your team about the impact of discs and the impact of the sport of ultimate and its value system, and imagine the effect that 10 discs can make on another team somewhere that is just getting off the ground.
Where are the ARIA discs made?
We make ARIA discs in partnership with a facility in Taiwan that produces high-end medical devices as well as core parts for electric powered vehicles such as Tesla. In setting up our supply chain, we have decided to focus on integrity, quality, and precise engineering. We hold all of our partners to extremely high standards, and we hope you hold us to the same or higher standards when you consider doing business with ARIA.
