Luftverk - Ultima Bi-Metal
A deeply cut H-profile based on the Fulvia, Ultima feels like it belongs to a suit of armor. The Bi-Metal version.
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 is the bi-metal version, with a generous stainless steel rim. Despite the fact that it has the same overall weight as the full titanium Ultima, but with that insane weight distribution, the spin is simply stunning, and stays dead steady till it completely runs out of energy. We don't recommend you hold your breath waiting for that to happen!
We can't stress enough how excellent this yo-yo is, with a very reliable spin that will serve you in all situations. This is such a joy to throw, you'll be looking for more opportunities to throw it around! Enjoy creating new combos for yourself, or horizontal moves. Challenge yourself to the tricks you have trouble with; you can't have better circumstances than throwing this around.
This main body 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.
