Luftverk - Ultima
A deeply cut H-profile based on the Fulvia, Ultima feels like it belongs to a suit of armor.
The high-end titanium model aimed for the contest stage, the Ultima. Based on the Fulvia, it has a deep H-profile, but the most interesting unique character arises from within, and in its curves.
There are both full titanium and a titanium + stainless bimetal variations available.
This version is the full titanium version, which is exceedingly light and snappy, great for speedy play and complex tricks that demand a high degree of accuracy. The titanium in this throw absolutely sings. It has a soft sense while spinning, like a quiet engine revving slightly. During tricky play, that stability really comes in handy and you can really feel the difference from other alloys. The overall sturdiness of the build is also superior. Basically everything about this yo-yo is top of the line, and with the crazy material the price suddenly doesn't feel so outrageous. Treat it well and the Ultima will last you longer than the video game series, and many generations beyond!
This smooth operator has a TiAIN (Titanium Aluminum Nitrate) PVD coating, giving it the slick black finish. Photos don't do it justice, you gotta see this for yourself.
The Ultima shares a very similar profile to the Fulvia - but with a one gram weight increase and a concave center catch zone that transforms the feel and play of this throw. This aggressive competition style yoyo takes everything that was learned through 2018/2019 projects and refines the well loved Fulvia into an even more stable trick machine.
Two variants again with the same profile but different weight distribution. The steel ring weighs nearly twice as much as the body, meaning that in house assembly of the rings are necessary to balance each yoyo perfectly smooth. The Bi-metal variant of the Ultima is therefore very limited due to assembly difficulties.
A new addition to this release is a finish TiAlN (Titanium Aluminum Nitrate) PVD coating. This unique coating is applied over a non-blasted surface to create an incredibly deep sheen. The actual finish has a blue haze to it - which proved very hard to capture in photos.
