Modularity & fit: The spokes and hubs are modular, enabling you to break them down for travel, and swap hubs for different color combinations.
The gem pop caps and shaft are securely attached to each other and should not be separated - it is very difficult to separate without destroying the shaft, and damage from attempts will not be fully covered under warranty.
While this reduces color options, it ensures a solid feel, and a reliable grip for removing them from the hub. The fit of the spokes in the hub is intentionally tight and may require a bit of work to insert when fresh - this is to ensure they remain secure as they loosen up over time. Do NOT lubricate them!
Day vs. LED options: The day triads are lightweight and responsive for endless play and fast direction changes. The illuminated options have heavier ends due to the lights, which slow things down a bit, and stabilizes their movements. Surprisingly they both free-spin on a finger for the same length of time (heavier = more momentum, but also more friction).

Gem-pop caps & hubs: 3D printed TPU
Shaft: fiberglass rods, deco tape, heat shrink
Size options: There are 2 standard lengths: 12” and 14”. See detailed images for reference.
The 12” size enables more geometric movements within your arms reach and is very popular.
The 14” feels much larger (it makes a bigger difference than you might expect) and is great for people with long arms or looking for a more expansive style.
Custom lengths available by request.
