Atsushi Yamada’s company, Japan Technology, is really on a roll right now with announcing new releases. A new budget offstring yoyo, a new 1A model, and now…a new titanium yoyo that manages to avoid a “Ti” pun in its name? Highest of fives, Atsushi.
The Ribira looks to be pretty much the same profile as their new 1A release, the Adel, but with changes made to wall thickness and weight distribution to specifically take advantage of the material. check out full specs and their press release below.
There are 4 kinds of Titanium Yo-Yos:
- Titanium Yo-Yos made for display, which has luxuriousness and satisfaction
- Titanium Yo-Yos whose shape and weights were simply adjusted to be like contest models
- Real Titanium Yo-Yos for competing, which was designed to improve its quality and possibilities for performance
- Imitation Titanium Yo-Yos are able to perform similar to the real one, but can never exceed it in performance
JAPAN TECHNOLOGY proposes “The Real Titanium Yo-Yo”. It took about two years to create “RIBIRA”. It raises the possibility of Titanium Yo-Yos. Which Titanium out of a variety of choices is the best for Yo-Yos? What cutting method and equipment meet the ideal way to shave Titanium to make Yo-Yos? The design could only be created because of Titanium. A lot of technique was effectively used, and as a result, “RIBIRA” was born with both high quality and luxuriousness.
