no, they say they are made of Hirex on the sheet that has information about the finesse.

i think more interesting is what material is used for the circus cups, since the finesse cups are way too grippy...
therefor the finesse cups have the better shape(from the logical point of view), more weight in the rims.
i wonder how diabolocups are producded and if its an enormous effort?

They are made from the skin of angels. Or of Martians, depending on what color you order.

There isn't much chance you'll find out the actual materials they are made of.  Awhile back i did some research for a physics presentation about what Henry's Circus cups are made of - and you can probably guess by the responses here of what i found out.  Your best bet would be to email MB if its that important to you.  Well saying that i emailed Henry's and i didn't get a reply  :(

Well, I imagine that MB and Henrys have castings for their diabolo cups which split either along the axis or another line of symmetry and then the material is either blown in, screw-fed in or just injected into the mould until it's full.  Then it sets and they pop it out of the mould for finishing.

Needless to say, the costly part is the mould which is awfully difficult to make and probably cost MB a hefty chunk when they switched from G1 to G2.  Oh, the machine's not cheap either, so not something you can do at home.

Plus Rextan and Hirex are brand names for materials which I don't think ever make it onto Google, so searching is a difficult task.

I vote for Martian skin.
