CLYW has officially released photos and specs for the new Riccardo Fraolini signature yoyo, the Manatee! There will be a small pre-release this weekend at the 2016 Bay Area Classic, and the full release will happen in early June at retailers worldwide. Riccardo was the 2015 Trick Innovator of the Year, and has been the undisputed king of the #trickcircle on Instagram pretty much since the concept started.
Designed collaboratively by Riccardo Fraolini and Chris Mikulin, the Manatee is the first model they’ve released that’s this wide, and also the first full-sized yoyo in a budget price range. With an expected retail price of $80-$90, the Manatee is nearly the price of the short-lived Campfire pocket yoyo they released a few years back.
The CLYW Manatee will be available early June at CLYW retailers worldwide in solid and splash colors.
