New Valhalla Composite javelins by Nordic Sport

New Valhalla Composite javelins by Nordic Sport

The new Valhalla Javelins are aerodynamically designed from scratch for maximum glide. The ‘Hard Carbon’ Javelins are made of 100% Carbon and are specifically made for very technical throwers. The ‘Hard Carbon’ Javelin is very sensitive to technical errors/ flaws but when hit right it will directly self correct and go further that any other Javelin based on our calculations and knowledge/ experience in this field.

The ‘Medium Hybrid’ Javelins are made of mixed composite material and are specifically made for less technical, but more powerful throwers, who are in need of a more forgiving Javelin option. Our ‘Medium Hybrid’ Javelins are  therefore more forgiving than the ‘Hard Carbon’ Javelins already mentioned, and therefore allow the thrower to make minor technical errors.  The Javelin will self correct immediately after the release for imperfect throws.

We have also designed new tips for our Valhalla Javelin range. The NXS – Next Generation Sharp tip is made for maximum lift in all wind conditions.  The NXS tip is a universal tip and more forgiving in side/ cross wind conditions than any other tip on the market.

The NXB – Next Generation Blunt tip is made for maximum lift in predominantly tailwind and still conditions.  The NXB tip is therefore thicker and possesses more of a blunt presentation than any other javelin tip on the market.  This helps to create maximum lift and therefore longer glide during perfect wind conditions for this particular tip.
