trikon dragon hub - choose lights
$175.00

Introducing the flowtoys "Trikon" dragon staff hub - designed to fit 3/4" (19mm), 7/8" (22mm) or 1" (25mm) staffs and give you an LED dragon like no other. Choose from 3 flowtoys light engines: vision, capsules, flowlights.

Spoke features: The unique conical dragon design looks and feels amazing, creates extra clearance, gives a better view from all angles, and stands up on its own. The outward angled spokes provide an extra 65mm/2.5" of clearance on each end, enabling a shorter shaft for better handling.  

Hubs: The 3D-printed TPU hubs are indestructible and can flex to absorb impacts. They fit very snugly on 3 different shaft diameters with optional adaptors, and can be tightened with an internal bolt and the included keychain hex-key (4mm / 5/32”).

Sold as a set. 

2-week lead time: Your Trikon dragon hub is 3D-printed in-house and printers can be fussy. Even if you choose Express shipping, your staff may not leave our factory until 2+ weeks after you order it! If you are in a rush, please contact us before ordering. We'll do our best to make magic happen.

Using trikon hubs with flowtoys 15mm composite staves

This combination does not work well for everyone, for 2 main reasons:
Roll: The shaft diameter of a dragon staff makes a huge difference on how fast it rolls, or travels along your body. Most people prefer 22mm, while some like 19mm. 15mm makes for a very slow roll that some people love, but is too slow for most.
DIY solution: Add more grip! Wrap more layers of grip to increase your shaft diameter.

Twist: The tubes on the ends of most flowtoys 15mm composite staffs are held on with rubber 3D-printed buttons and can be removed by twisting. The trikon hubs will twist the tube when dropped, and the tube can then fall off. Also the repeated twisting will wear out the buttons.
DIY solution: You can secure them with tape as a temporary solution, drill screws into the buttons to make them secure, or order screw-connectors from flowtoys and drill them in yourself.

Other options:
If you already have the hubs, you can get appropriate shafts for them (TBD).
If you haven’t bought them yet, consider getting a complete trikon dragon.

Dragon and trikon hub design history

The flowtoys trikon dragon hub design is a step in the evolution of the LED dragon staff. Dragon staff as an art form was originally innovated by Hungarian fire spinning and prop making legend, Gora, in 2004.

The spiraled shape of the trikon design was inspired by Mickey Khoury’s “Viper” hubs launched in 2015. Mickey has been supporting the dragon staff community for many years through innovative designs and moves through his company FlowForm in Australia.

The “conical” shape was invented by Sean of flowtoys to add dimensionality, better display the LEDs, create more clearance during use, and enable the staff to stand on its own. The use of flexible 3D printed parts to make a solid and incredibly durable transition between tubes, leashes and other prop components was developed by flowtoys in 2013 and has transformed the industry.
