Modularity & fit
The spokes and hubs are modular, enabling you to break them down for travel, and swap hubs for different color combinations.
The spoke adapter and fiberglass 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 modularity and 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).
Flowlights are low-cost, beautiful, and use easily replaceable rechargeable AAA batteries, but they do not sync wirelessly and you must remove each one from the tube to press the button. If you go with flowlights, you will probably want to upgrade them at some point for convenience of use. Thanks to our modular designs and forever flow warranty and trade-in policy, you will be able to re-use many of the parts and get 50% credit for the rest, making any future upgrades or repairs affordable.
Capsule lights illuminate the tips of the spokes, giving the maximum “playable” spoke length, most similar to day and fire triads. They charge via usb, are hella bright, sync wirelessly, and you can press the button through the cap for super-easy mode changes. They work with the flowtoys bridge and app for more control and show creation!
Vision lights create a bright and stunning display with 32 RGB LEDs arranged into 9 pixels. The large illuminated area shows up great on stage. They charge via usb, sync wirelessly and you can press the button through the cap for super-easy mode changes. They work with the flowtoys bridge and app for more control and show creation!

Flowcap air, spoke adaptors & hub: 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.
