As Michael Kurti’s tricks have been growing longer and more complicated, he needed equipment that could handle his new concepts and direction. He brainstormed with Chris, came up with some ideas of what he wanted in a yo-yo, and landed on what you see before you – The Igloo! This yo-yo has a beautiful BVM2 inspired profile fused with a powerful bi-metal design to really push the weight distribution and allow for the longest spinning, most stable return top possible within Michael Kurti’s preferred specs.
The Igloo brings that classic CLYW feel forward with a new level of performance and a sleek clean look. With a body shape that CLYW fans will love and performance that can handle anything you can think of, the Igloo is the latest leap forward for CLYW!
The Compass continues to blend together Petr Kavka’s favorite design elements from the Chief, Bonfire, and Scout. The shape is comfortable and modern with adjustments to maximize rim weight and the inner gap shape for forgiveness to allow for maximum spin time during complex and technical string tricks. Watch Petr and you will understand why this is his new weapon of choice.
The Compass also features a super grinding surface an inner area for exceptional horizontal finger balancing! Subtle engraving with absolutely amazing colorways this is a new CLYW model that we are all very excited for!
The Manatee is the new signature return top for Riccardo Fraolini, and one of our favorite designs to date. Riccardo has made a name for himself as the undisputed king of the #trickcircle, posting some of the most mind-blowing original tricks imaginable to his Instagram and Facebook accounts, and he wanted a return top that would make his nearly-impossible tricks just a little more consistent.
The Manatee design started with the Arctic Circle 2; Riccardo wanted a similar feel look with the rims, but asked for a different feel on the string. The Manatee has a super wide profile with a huge catch zone for all those tricky catches, and plenty of rim weight to help you get through those long tricks and combos. The Manatee’s weight distribution makes it really easy to control the speed of your play, whether you are slowing down a trick for video or pushing for ultra-fast contest play.
