The Aerobie ring was designed in 1984 by Alan Adler in the US. An Aerobie is a flying ring used in a manner similar to a flying disc (Frisbee). The first Aerobie was a ring, rather than a disc. An Aerobie is also lighter and more stable in flight. It can be bent to tune it for straighter flight. Since it has very low drag and good stability, it can be thrown much farther than a flying disc. The Aerobie was used to set two former world records for thrown objects.
“Aerobie” also refers to other throwing products made by Aerobie. The Aerobie sport toys are famous for their high performance standards. Soft edges, extreme precision and unbelievable throwing distances are the touchstones of the Aerobie range.
