The Aura is here! A new way of looking at double drives and a new way of looking at spinning. Designed from the ground up, the Aura has a new style and presence while still retaining the classic Majacraft look. It has two independent drive bands, one for the flyer and a second for the bobbin.
The flyer drive has three different ratios and the bobbin drive has two ratios plus infinite adjustment. Being so unique, the Aura requires new thinking about spinning and expressing your creativity. The potential is huge and when you are ready to explore everything that can be achieved in spinning then the time has come to spend some time with an Aura.
The flyer is all new and builds on the advances Majacraft has made in the past. It shares the aerodynamic shape of recently introduced on all other flyers for efficient and easy spinning. Most importantly it has a new dual function orifice. Fine yarns can be held still in the delta part of the orifice. This also has the function of holding coil yarns very still so you can observe your work. You can bypass the delta and use the large halo ring for spinning huge. With the new double drive, the Aura can spin anything that can be pulled through this orifice!
The new folding handle design has the grip in a new location and special bumpers on the handle to keep the spinning head away from the pedals when you fold it down. As with all other Majacraft wheels, they have worked to make it as compatible as possible with all available accessories. All existing Majacraft flyers will fit the Aura. The Aura uses jumbo hand-turned bamboo wood bobbins produced after April 2010 (Jumbo bobbins produced prior will not fit). Three jumbo wooden bobbins are included with each Aura.
