Liopleurodon

Alongside new weird stuff, we have been re-visiting our older classics for a while now. It was only a matter of time before we reached one of our most loved designs of all time.

The Liopleurodon is a beefy full size organic with a lot of power but a surprising amount of relaxed smoothness – a truly prehistoric experience.

The design is based on the very first iteration of the Lio, the OG so to say. We trimmed off some center-weight to give it a bit more float while retaining the classic Lio-experience.

Specs:
Diameter: 55 mm
Width: 41.3 mm
Gap: 4 mm
Weight: 65.4 g
Bearing: C-Size
Response: 19 mm pad
Alloy: AL 7068-T6
Limitation: 62

We are selling these now for 80 EUR plus shipping (5.49 EUR DE /12.33 EUR US). The shipping method we used for other locations than DE and US has been discontinued. The shipping rate varies depending on the destination. Please get in touch to receive a precise quote for the current shipping costs. We are looking into alternative shipping methods with a fixed price.

Please note that shipping will take longer than usual, especially to the US. We assure you that we are trying to ship as quickly as possible.

You can get one now by sending us an email with an order request with your shipping address and telephone number (the latter is only required for US shipments). Please let us know if you want to use a different e-mail address for PayPal. We will then get back to you with a payment request.

Lio Contest

Here’s your chance to win a brand new 2012 Liopleurodon!

All you have to do is make a little yoyo video with the following conditions:

  • duration max. 1 minute
  • upload your video to YouTube
  • use our logo in the beginning and show our URL at the end (ilyy.de)
  • music is not a must, but if you use sound, make sure it’s not copyrighted, use free music under the creative commons license and so on, but only yoyo-sounds are nice too

Skill alone won’t win you the Lio. Creativity is the most important aspect we’re looking for. That is, creativity regarding yoyo tricks, locations, recording and editing.
To submit your video, like us on Facebook and post it on our wall.
Deadline for submissions is May 13th.

Let the games begin!
