We are currently working on silicone pads that fit all our large bearing yoyos of the last years. We expect to get the first samples soon.
The very first E1NS prototype did some crucial things differently. Pad response and a C-sized bearing. As the prototyping and testing went along, we decided to switch to silicone response and a metric sized bearing. That worked perfectly for our entire line up. However, to this day, we receive tons of emails asking for yoyos that use a C bearing. So, there you have it:
Classic shape (more wingish than current releases) like the first final run had. Our lovely sILYYcone response and a C-sized KMK bearing. Additionally, we tweaked the rims for better IRG accessibility and a floatier play. Orange / titanium candodize to offer a unique look whilst maintaining the true E1NS look.
The yoyo you’ve all been waiting for. Arrives this spring/summer.
A small batch of b-grade preproduction “E1NS12c” will be available soon. You know, machining shops these days…
We did a special run of GeneralYo’s latest product – the Entheos.
There are nine in total. They will be up for sale soon (where is tba).
The finish is our lovely Candodize with a special sparkle. They come sILYYconed with GeneralYo replacement pads, axle and ILYY button and sticker.
Our first low price yoyo was the Void. It was a huge success and we decided to further expand our line of lower priced throws by two – Valve and Verve.
Both feature a similar shape and guts, however they come in two differenz sizes.
The Valve being the full size entry at nice 54mm diameter.
And the Verve being the smaller brother at 50mm diameter.
In comparison with the Void:
Valve is planned for mid November, Verve in December.
We are so pleased with how the 2011 Void turned out, we want to celebrate its greatness with a special edition! This SE Void comes in a beautiful black Candodize coating with a lasered artwort by the great Clayton V. and an exclusive Graou “black metal” string. So much win in a single package! Only 26 of these were made. Available soon at selected retailers.
Dominik loves his SB2 so much, so we decided to work on a classic shape yoyo, a tribute to Tom Kuhn’s classic. We finally came up with nothing but the Trvth.
At this point, there have been two iterations. The first prototype featured an absolutely straight gap profile. But we found it very hard to play with it, cause of the tiny catch zone. So, to increase the playablity just a bit by maintaining an uncompromising design, at least by today’s standards regarding 1A yoyos, we decided to make the profile slightly wing-shaped. Actually the SB2 was slightly wing-shaped as well.
Now, for our second prototype the catch zone is like double the size of the first version. We also increased the overall diameter just a bit to give it more rim weight and spin time.
Comparison picture: Version 1 – Version 2:
The second prototype features full, state of the art engravings. As you can see, we are kind of going a metal theme here. Its a darkyoyo, which leads us to “black metal” of course. Also, you can think of the name and the term “trve metal”. The style of the engraving goes along with the heavy metal theme as well. Artwork by Clayton V.
The final release will also be candodized, just like the prototypes. The engraving is not final at this point, we might tweak it a bit here and there. As a goodie, the final version will come with a special Graou string made just for us.
We are aiming for a release during second half of 2011.
There is also a short teaser video, that features the prototype version 1:
