The Spinning Bowties is an obstacle, firstly introduced as the second obstacle on American Ninja Warrior 10 in Philadelphia.
It consisted of two bowtie-shaped wheels, each with peg-shape handles on its front end. Competitors must jump from the springboard and grab the handles. Then, they must build enough enough momentum to grab the next handles on the second wheel (in a similar fashion to the Fly Wheels or Flying Squirrel), and finally made the dismount to the landing platform.
During Philadelphia qualifiers, the obstacle eliminated 17 competitors, including Kevin Liang, Daria Beird, and Perry Madison. However, no competitor failed on this obstacle during Philadelphia finals.
