Latitude 64 Gladiator
The Gladiator: The Gladiator was designed as a high-speed disc with superior glide and distance along with overstability to make it a valuable tool for professional and experienced players. David Feldberg collaborated with the Latitude 64 disc designer, Tomas Ekström, to craft this design. Field tests have confirmed the Gladiator combines the perfect blend of speed, glide and distance with overstability.
The velocity required to reach a disc's optimal flight path. Range: 1 to 15.
The measure of lift generated by a disc to stay aloft. Range: 1 to 7.
The velocity, relative to the speed of the disc, required to cause the disc to turn with the direction of spin. Range: +1 to -5.
The low-velocity stability that causes a disc to hook at the end of its flight. Range: 0 to 5.
PDGA Disc Specifications
Phases of Flight
|As the disc slows and spin decreases, the disc pulls out of turn and begins to hook at the end of flight|
|The aerodynamic profile turns the disc with the direction of spin during the high-speed phase of flight|
|The initial thrust forward during the high-speed phase of flight|
